Chick-fil-A Second Location in Pasadena, CA @ChickfilA

Chick-fil-A is moving forward with a second location in Pasadena, CA.

790 N Lake Ave, Pasadena, CA 91104
Lake and Boylston

This is located near a Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles and a KFC.   The location was most recently a Carl’s Jr.

Chick-fil-A has been a proud community partner with Pasadena for over five years, serving residents and guests at their restaurant on East Colorado Boulevard near Pasadena City College.

The presentation of the proposed location was made to the City of Pasadena, and approved.  A link here with the meeting agenda and presentation by officials.

There are certainly going to be some challenges and those who approved this are aware of the drive-thru congestion caused by the Starbucks across the street.   The same will occur with this location as has been seen at the other. Careful consideration should be given as the amount of traffic and patterns should be carefully evaluated.

Spectrum Price Gouging Price Increases Sly Tactics @charter @get_spectrum

Spectrum Price Gouging Price Increases

So you may have received like the one below.

Spectrum is raising rates… In this case our rate went from $49.99 to $54.99 to what the letter claims is going to be the new rate at $69.99. This is rally bad.   This s only for internet, imagine most customers who have a phone line and video services their bill is easily over $100.

When new customers are being lured in with promotions and specials for $49.99 for 12 months and twice the speed as customers like myself are getting, that’s just wrong and the FCC needs to investigate this and fine companies for this unethical and unscrupulous billing tactic. They are betting that customers will not cancel or find an alternative service.  Meanwhile the profits these companies are generating for there executives are growing by leaps and bounds. And making all their executives filthy rich.  They should be embarrassed but they bask in the riches they make off the backs of the working people and those they can take advantage of.

This letter has someone named Kathleen Griffin, VP Customers Communications

City of Pasadena Appoints New Fire Chief
New Fire Chief Hired
The City of Pasadena has announced the appointment of Sacramento Fire Department (SFD) Deputy Fire Chief Chad Augustin to serve as the new fire chief of Pasadena Fire Department, effective Feb. 22. See the whole press release here.

PASADENA, Calif.—The City of Pasadena has announced the appointment of Sacramento Fire Department (SFD) Deputy Fire Chief Chad Augustin to serve as the new fire chief of Pasadena Fire Department, effective Feb. 22. As fire chief, he will oversee 190 full-time employees and an annual department budget of $55.5 million.

Chief Augustin began his career with SFD as a firefighter paramedic and has risen through the ranks over the last 20 years, serving in a wide range of areas, including training, fire prevention, administration, human resources, professional standards, operations and emergency medical services. He comes to Pasadena with a diverse background in hazardous materials, urban search and rescue, large-scale emergency/disaster incident management, and developing short- and long-range plans.

As deputy fire chief for SFD, Chief Augustin is responsible for the department’s Fire Operations and Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Divisions, overseeing the daily operations of 24 fire stations with an annual budget responsibility of $100 million. During his tenure with SFD, he has provided leadership in support of high-quality EMS care and transportation, streamlined the emergency response model for ambulance dispatch, and managed cost recovery efforts and billing improvements. In February 2020, Chief Augustin was selected for the highly competitive Fire Service Executive Development Institute, a program developed by the International Association of Fire Chiefs, to provide new and aspiring chiefs with the tools they need to have successful and productive tenures.

“I am so pleased to have Chief Augustin joining Pasadena as our next fire chief. He has impressive qualifications and well-rounded experience working at a busy urban fire department as well as demonstrated involvement in his community,” said City Manager Steve Mermell. “The chief’s passion for the fire service is infectious, and he has a reputation as being a leader others want to follow. His desire to foster innovation, collaborate with school districts and state and local agencies, and mentor the next generation of fire service leaders will benefit the Pasadena community and fire department employees.”

The City retained the services of executive recruiting firm Teri Black & Company, LLC to facilitate the search for a new fire chief. They completed a nationwide search that spanned four months and attracted many well-qualified candidates. During the recruitment process, Pasadena residents were invited to share feedback regarding qualifications and characteristics most important in their new fire chief via the City’s website. Of the 40 applications received, the search firm identified 11 applicants as most qualified based on the established criteria. These applicants then participated in initial screening interviews, and the city manager and the consultant narrowed the field down to the top four applicants. These four finalists were interviewed in mid-December by a professional panel of fire chiefs, Pasadena Fire Department employees, the assistant city managers, and city manager.

Chief Augustin earned a Master of Legal Studies degree from the University of Arizona, where he graduated Magna Cum Laude; a bachelor’s degree in fire administration from Waldorf University; and a Chief Officer Certification from the California State Board of Fire Services.

Chief Augustin is honored and excited to join the Pasadena Fire Department. He and his wife of 24 years, Sandra, look forward to making Pasadena their home.
