Voter satisfaction in California slips in new Field poll

first_imgSACRAMENTO – Six months ago, voters had their brightest outlook on California’s future in the past six years. That didn’t last long. A Field poll released Friday shows that voters now are evenly split over whether the state is headed in the right direction – an attitude fueled by growing frustration over what they believe is failed U.S. immigration policies and poorly performing schools. “People are dissatisfied with the whole state of the country and that affects their opinions toward California,” said Jack Pitney, a political science professor at Claremont McKenna College. The poll indicated that among those who have a dim view of California’s future, the largest proportion – 21percent – cited immigration issues, complaining that the border is not being properly controlled. Of voters expressing optimism, the largest percentage – again 21percent – cited their confidence in Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s leadership. The poll showed that 42percent of voters thought the state was headed in the right direction and 42percent said it was going in the wrong direction. A survey in March showed that 52percent believed the state was moving in the right direction with 38percent disagreeing. That was the most positive overall assessment since December 2001, prior to the state’s energy crisis and gubernatorial recall. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

DONEGAL HERO TO GET GLOBAL AWARD FOR DARING PACIFIC RESCUE

first_imgThe Cruising Club of America (CCA) has confirmed that its 2014 Rod Stephens Trophy for Outstanding Seamanship will be awarded to Sean McCarter, skipper of the Clipper 2013-14 Round the World Yacht Race Northern Irish entry Derry-Londonderry-Doire.The award is in recognition of the way he directed his crew during a dramatic man overboard rescue in the harsh northern Pacific Ocean last March.The Rod Stephens Trophy for Outstanding Seamanship is an internationally renowned trophy awarded annually for an act of seamanship which significantly contributes to the safety of a yacht, or one or more individuals at sea. The Buncrana man learnt to sail on Lough Swilly in County Donegal, Ireland at just five years old.A former Royal National Lifeboat Institution volunteer, Sean says: “The CCA is a club that has over 85 years of promoting the adventurous use of the sea and puts a premium on safety and seamanship.“I am honoured to have been selected to receive The Rod Stephens trophy for Outstanding Seamanship but must accept it on behalf of the entire crew of Derry-Londonderry-Doire on the Pacific leg. Finding and rescuing Andrew Taylor in the midst of a North Pacific gale was not down to one person but to the skill and determination of a well-trained team.”Crew member Andrew Taylor, 46, from London, went overboard in the middle of a Pacific Ocean storm, approximately half way through the 5,600 mile race from Qingdao, China to San Francisco, USA at the end of March this year whilst competing in the Clipper 2013-14 Race. He was recovered after 90 minutes in the water. The search was particularly difficult due to low visibility, high winds and mountainous seas which caused Andrew to drift quickly out of sight from the yacht. Andrew made a full recovery after initial shock, hypothermia and a badly bruised leg. He continued the remaining six races to complete the circumnavigation when the Clipper Race returned to London in July 2014.Clipper Race chairman and founder, Sir Robin Knox-Johnston says: “The recognition of Sean McCarter’s leadership and motivation by the Cruising Club of America’s prestigious Outstanding Seamanship Award during the recovery of Andrew Taylor from the Derry~Londonderry~Doire yacht during the passage across the North Pacific Ocean will be welcomed by many.“Andrew fell overside in strong winds and heavy seas during the race from Qingdao to San Francisco. Sean’s determination to recover Andrew motivated the crew and it is fair to say that had Sean not shown outstanding leadership Andrew might not be with us today.”Derry has been represented in the Clipper Race since 2011 and finished in fourth position at the end of the last edition earlier this year.In the past, the Rod Stephens trophy has been awarded for diverse acts of seamanship such as the rescue of 51 Haitians by the captain and crew of Corwith Cramer, a Brigantine sail training ship. In 2007 it was awarded to Mike Golding for his rescue of Alex Thomson during the 2006 Velux Ocean race when Thomson’s boat Hugo Boss was sinking. The award will be presented during the Annual Awards Dinner of the Cruising Club of America at the New York Yacht Club in Manhattan on 6 March, 2015.Sean McCarter and his crew were also recently nominated for Yachts and Yachting Magazine Achievement of the Year Award. Winners will be announced in February.DONEGAL HERO TO GET GLOBAL AWARD FOR DARING PACIFIC RESCUE was last modified: December 21st, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:awardrescuesean mccarterlast_img read more
