The USG Senate meeting on Tuesday night featured presentations from USG’s University Affairs Committee and Arts Committee.Director of University Affairs Andrew Menard updated USG Senators on several projects to improve the quality of USC student life, both on and off campus.University Affairs successfully reinstated a bus transportation service to LA Live for USC students. Though feedback has been positive, the committee wants to make sure students are aware of the service so that funding continues.“This is really big to publicize — if we don’t get people going, we might lose it,” Menard said. “Most of the feedback has been really good, but it’s important to get the word out.”In addition to reinstating the shuttle service, University Affairs had success in improving dorms on campus. So far, printers have been installed in Fluor, Parkside, New, North and Pardee for students to use.The committee is looking forward to further dorm renovations scheduled for summer of 2014.“We’re getting new flooring in Troy, as well as soundproof windows in New, North and Marks,” Menard said.University Affairs is focused on more immediate goals as well. Over the course of the semester, University Affairs plans on improving Campus Cruiser’s operating system, as well as extending hours for the Farmer’s Market on McCarthy Quad.After University Affairs presented, Fabiola Avina, director of USG’s Performing Arts Committee, gave a presentation to announce upcoming events her organization is sponsoring. These events include a visit by transgender performer Rebecca King, as well as the highly-anticipated USC Arts Week.“USC Arts Week is our biggest initiative this semester,” Avina said.Arts Week starts the week of March 31, and will include programs that showcase the artistic talents and interests of USC students.
Paul Gascoigne has been fined £1,000 after he admitted common assault and drunk and disorderly charges linked to an incident at a railway station.Gascoigne, 46, who has battled alcoholism for many years, was fined £600 for one charge of assault and £400 for a drunk and disorderly charge at Stevenage magistrates court.He was also ordered to pay £100 in compensation to Jack Sherrington, a security guard whom he assaulted, as well as court costs of £85 and a victim surcharge of £60.The former England midfielder, who lives in Gateshead, was arrested after officers were called to Stevenage rail station in Hertfordshire at about 10.30pm on 4 July.Gascoigne was originally charged with two counts of assault, one involving his former wife, Sheryl, but that charge was dropped.In court he listened to the charges being read to him and entered guilty pleas. The court heard that Gascoigne was travelling from Newcastle upon Tyne to London King’s Cross but got off the train at Stevenage station.Staff at the station noticed he was drunk staggering towards the railway tracks, and tried to help him by putting him in a wheelchair, but he became abusive towards Sherrington.Elaine McMillan, prosecuting, said Gascoigne grabbed hold of Sherrington in the neck area, an assault that lasted a few seconds. Sherrington did not suffer any injuries.The court heard that Gascoigne, who received treatment for alcoholism in a US clinic this year, had been in Newcastle visiting his ill father, who has a heart condition.Gascoigne’s lawyer, Gavin Harris, said his client had consumed a small amount of alcohol to relieve a “combination of stress caused by worry for his father and acute pain from a hip operation six weeks previously”. Harris said that because Gascoigne had not drunk alcohol for a significant period of time, the effects were stronger than would have otherwise been the case.The court heard that Gascoigne’s ex-wife and children were called to the station, and in her sentencing the chair of the bench, Carolyn Marsh, pointed out that his 17-year-old son was “distressed”.The court also heard that Gascoigne was receiving one-to-one treatment for his alcoholism, which was continuing. Harris said: “Mr Gascoigne is remorseful and apologises for his actions.”With his sunglasses back on, Gascoigne left the court and was driven away in a grey Porsche.In a statement outside court, Harris said: “Mr Gascoigne has asked me to say a few words on his behalf. He wants to publicly apologise for his actions that evening. He now wishes to be left alone to carry on with his recovery.”
