Lausd Workers Moved To New Jobs

Lausd Workers Moved To New Jobs - A day after more than 1,000 Los Angeles Unified office clerks, grounds workers and classroom aides lost their jobs, several thousand more reported to new work sites Wednesday in a mid-semester version of "musical chairs," as one school district official called the upheaval.

More than 3,600 nonteaching staff members were "bumped" from one position to another - and in some cases assigned to campuses on the far side of a sprawling school district - in the latest round of budget-induced personnel moves.

On Tuesday afternoon, district workers protested outside a Board of Education meeting, calling for the LAUSD to save jobs using a portion of $103 million distributed to the school district from the federal jobs bill.

"The money is earmarked to preserve and create jobs," said Susan Gosman, president of Los Angeles Chapter 500 of the California School Employees Association, or CSEA. "In the meantime, we have people who are hitting the streets."

In a letter to employees Wednesday, Superintendent Ramon Cortines said the federal money was needed to save more than 2,000 positions in 2011-12, which he called "an even more difficult year."

Using one-time funding now would be "grossly irresponsible," he wrote.

"We are attempting to bring stability during these turbulent times. If we don't use these dollars in 2011-2012 to preserve jobs, then our challenge becomes worse, rather than better," Cortines wrote.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, GatorUpdates.com and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
