Beloved New York bar wins reprieve from wrecking ball

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 08/20/2014 - 05:38
By Laila Kearney NEW YORK (Reuters) - Owners of the 77-year-old Subway Inn, a New York bar where celebrities like Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio once mingled, won a court order on Tuesday temporarily blocking their imminent eviction from the site, the business said. The reprieve for the family-owned bar on Manhattan's Upper East Side, a day before it was set to be closed, comes as a rising number of long-established New York businesses have been forced to make way for high-end residences or chain stores able to afford the city's soaring property costs. "We know that this is just the first step in a very long and hard David vs Goliath Fight," Subway Inn co-owner Steven Salinas said in a statement. "However, we are confident that in the end justice prevails and the Subway Inn will be spared from the wrecking ball." Subway Inn had been slated to close by Wednesday.

Calpers set to allow 100 extra pay types count toward pensions

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 08/20/2014 - 05:34
By Tim Reid LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The California Public Employees' Retirement System (Calpers), America's largest public pension fund, is expected to approve nearly 100 types of extra pay on Wednesday that will count toward how pensions are calculated for newly hired workers. Critics say the move will increase pension costs at a time when cash-strapped California cities are already straining to pay rising retirement costs. The fund said it had not analyzed the impact of the additional pay on pension costs. California Governor Jerry Brown passed a reform law in 2012 that was aimed at reducing pension costs for newly hired workers.
