It’s a real loss, but he leaves a good legacy and was a positive role model for all races, creeds and colors in this county.” Dorn was born Sept. 19, 1918, in Pasadena. He attended John Muir High School and Pasadena Junior College before graduating from Santa Barbara State College. A civilian instructor for the Army Air Corps during World War II, Dorn taught school and sold real estate before he was elected to the Pasadena Board of City Directors, where he served as mayor. As county supervisor, Dorn pursued strict enforcement of air pollution standards, property tax relief and improved services at county hospitals. He founded commissions on alcoholism, dangerous drugs, indecent literature, hospitals and water resources. Dorn was also instrumental in establishing two airports, the Music Center, the Sports Arena, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and Olive View Hospital and Medical Center. Warren M. Dorn, who represented the San Fernando Valley for 16 years on the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors and helped launch some of the nation’s toughest pollution controls, died Tuesday. He was 87. The Morro Bay resident, nicknamed “Mercy” for his repeated use of the word, died of pneumonia at Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center in San Luis Obispo. Many praised the ruddy-faced Dorn for his unflagging service to the Fifth Supervisorial District from 1956 to 1972. The veteran politician once boasted a career ranging “from boy mayor of Pasadena to recycled mayor of Morro Bay. Oh, mercy!” “I had the opportunity to wish him godspeed and told him we would keep him in our prayers as we wanted him to keep us in his prayers,” said Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich, who spoke to Dorn by phone Monday night. Former Gov. Edmund G. “Pat” Brown, a Democrat, once praised Dorn, a Republican, as “one of the great nonpartisan helpers” to bringing state water and recreational facilities to Southern California. Dorn, whose district included the Antelope Valley, Santa Clarita and San Fernando valleys, had received numerous awards for community service. After a bitter campaign, Dorn was succeeded by former TV newscaster Baxter Ward in 1972. He then moved to Morro Bay, where he served as the city’s mayor from 1980 to ’84. “He was beloved,” said Los Angeles City Councilwoman Janice Hahn, whose late father, Kenneth Hahn, served with Dorn. Dorn was the third San Fernando Valley elected official to die in the past month. Former City Councilman Ernani Bernardi died Jan. 4 at age 94. Former City Councilman Marvin Braude died Dec. 7 at 85. Both served 32 years on the council. Warren Max Dorn is survived by Phyllis, his wife of nearly 64 years; two sons, Dan and Robert; a daughter, Jennifer Bodaken; 17 grandchildren; and 10 great-grandchildren. A funeral is scheduled for 2 p.m. Friday at St. Timothy’s Catholic Church in Morro Bay.

‘It would be a dream’ – Peter Schmeichel backs Kasper to become Man United No.1

Posted on by

first_imgPeter Schmeichel admits it would be a ‘dream’ to see his son Kasper play for Manchester United.The Leicester shot-stopper has been touted as a potential replacement for David de Gea, amid reports the Spaniard is wanted by Real Madrid.Schmeichel snr says the 30-year-old is in no hurry to leave the ambitious Foxes, where he won the Premier League title in remarkable fashion in 2015-16.But he insists Kasper is good enough to follow in his footsteps and be United’s number one should the jersey become available.“It would be a dream”, said Peter, when asked if he would like to see his son in a United shirt.The Premier League legend, who won five titles, three FA Cups and the Champions League in his glittering eight-year spell at Old Trafford, added: “For me, trying to be as neutral and unbiased and not like a father, I think he has done well enough to convince everybody that he can play at the highest level“The doubts were there when he first went into the Premier League over whether he was good enough, but he proved that and in the Champions League last year I thought he did really well. If clubs need a really good goalkeeper, well he is somebody who can be trusted to do that.“Having said that, I am crazy about Leicester, I am crazy about the owners – they are fantastic and really good for the Premier League. There is no shortage of will and money to make Leicester a top four club, or at least top six, top eight. They are prepared to do that and that is a really interesting environment to play football in.“There is no, ‘Kasper needs to move’, kind of feel at the moment, but if an opportunity like that [moving to United] came around, that would be fantastic.”last_img read more
