Popular Sports Leader Lauded

October 22, 1987

Responding to concern from children and parents about the departure of Lomita's popular sports coordinator, the City Council voted Monday to investigate whether she would return to work in a higher-paying position.

Cynthia L. Blount resigned from her coaching and administrative duties at Lomita Park early this month to accept a full-time driving job with UPS at $11.36 an hour, about $1,970 a month. Supporters described Blount, who has worked with the city for 11 years, as the heart of Lomita's athletic program.

The council agreed to send two council members--Charles Belba and Pete Rossick--to talk with Blount before their next meeting on Nov. 2, when the council will discuss creating the position of assistant recreation supervisor. The job, has a salary range of $1,549 to 1,929 a month, the same as the office manager of parks and recreation.

Blount, whose job with UPS begins Monday, said Tuesday that she would consider an offer from the city.
