THE $50 million gift from Richard and Melanie Lundquist to Mayor school reform effort could do a lot to jump-start his plans to improve education at two clusters of L.A. schools. Villaraigosa’s plan to take two clusters of failing Los Angeles Unified School District schools will need money. And like many a political effort before this, the donations will come from the men and women of means who care about education, and perhaps some who care about making the Antonio Villaraigosa’s possible future governor happy. In promising $50 million to the school reform over 10 years, the Lundquists, who are South Bay real estate developers, have shown themselves to be enormously generous. And like any act that involves the exchange of such a fortune, it opens a vein of suspicion in many. After all, they don’t have kids at LAUSD schools; they don’t even live in Los Angeles. There’s no question that creating a support foundation for the mayor’s political campaign will open doors at City Hall – literally, in this case. Indeed, Melanie Lundquist, who will head the foundation, will spend a great deal of time in City Hall with the mayor’s education team, figuring out how to best use the funds. Those of us who don’t have $50, let alone $50 million, to give wouldn’t even be allowed through the door. That’s just the way of the world. The Lundquists, who are both LAUSD graduates, appear to have nothing to gain except the sense of fulfillment that comes from helping to make a difference in the lives of others. The size of this donation puts the mayor and his team under pressure to achieve major improvements in the schools they will supervise to prove once and for all that adequate funding and strong leadership can give the children of Los Angeles the quality education they deserve. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

KILLYBEGS soccer star Seamus Coleman has joked about Donegal GAA manager Jim McGuinness trying his sports psychology in Britain.Following speculation of links to both Celtic and Merseyside rivals Liverpool, the Everton man joked: “I’d rather he came to Everton. I’ll have a word with him!”Yesterday McGuinness said he hasn’t had any approaches from soccer clubs in Britain, though he said he would consider any job offer. The Glenties man’s role with Donegal is voluntary in an amateur sport.He earns a living as a sports psychologist.Coleman says he is delighted Donegal won the All-Ireland.“I’m a massive Donegal fan and I keep in touch with the lads, there was no happier man to see them win. They’ve been a great inspiration for everyone in the county. Michael Murphy is a great captain and for the young people in Donegal there’s no one better to look up to, he’s a great role model,” he said. Coleman, who is expected to play for Ireland against Germany this Friday – a day after his 24th birthday – said McGuinness could easily use his skills in the Premier League.“I spoke to Jim a few times and, honestly, he’s a great, great man,” said the former Donegal minor player.“You can see the love he has for football and sport, it’s something else. It would be great if he got a role with one of the football clubs, he could turn his hand to it, no problem. It’s the type of man he is.”Coleman admitted being a fan again for the Euro 2012 campaign – and watched Ireland’s games in Fawlty’s Bar in Killybegs with his mates.“Hopefully I will get another chance to reach a major tournament with Ireland. That’s my aim now, that’s my drive, because everyone wants to play in a major tournament for their country,” he said.
