Reward key tool in death probes

first_imgIn 2000, Montebello offered a $30,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of whoever killed Ray Anthony Hernandez, 21. The Montebello resident was shot in the back of the head as he left a Pizza Hut. Knabe’s office put up part of the money, then contacted the city and asked official to also contribute to a reward fund, city officials said, adding that it does not often happen. County officials said they offer rewards in homicide cases at the request of detectives. David Summers, a spokesman for Knabe, said his office is sometimes contacted by deputies or police asking if Knabe can provide reward money. “We’ll get notification from a local police department that a reward will be helpful to bring a case to justice,” he said. “We really tend to defer to…law enforcement.” One of the largest rewards now being offered is $150,000 for the arrest and conviction of the killer or killers of sheriff’s Deputy Maria Cecilia Rosa, who was shot to death in Long Beach on March28. The money comes from the county, Sheriff’s Department labor unions and a private real estate company. Supervisor Gloria Molina’s office on Wednesday announced a $25,000 reward for information leading to a conviction in the case of Robert Whithead, 44, of Valinda, who was gunned down in front of his home March9. Whithead confronted two men spray-painting graffiti on a neighbor’s wall that night. Another man approached him from behind and fired several shots. “This man was nothing but a good citizen,” said Carrillo. “He was a nice neighbor who stepped outside and saw gang members spray painting a neighbor’s wall. He told them to knock it off and lost his life.” sandy.mazza@sgvn.com (562)698-0955, Ext.3026160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

When the body of Lakewood resident Barbara Rogers was discovered along a riverbed in Pico Rivera, her family and friends, her city and her county supervisor put up a $25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of her killer or killers. But when William Rodriguez Jr.,22, of South El Monte was gunned down in his car at a Jack-in-the-Box drive-up window in Pico Rivera on Feb.16, 2005, no one came forward to offer a reward in the case. When it comes to rewards, there are no pat rules governing which cases get singled out for rewards and which don’t, government and law-enforcement officials say. “It’s done on a case-by-case basis,” said Lt. Gil Carrillo of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Homicide Bureau. “I’m not aware of any specific guidelines used to determine rewards.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREOregon Ducks football players get stuck on Disney ride during Rose Bowl eventBut media coverage and notoriety help, Carillo said. “A case has to have notoriety,” he said. “You hope that you get some action. These rewards eventually rescind if there’s no action.” Rewards are usually put up by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, but sometimes a victim’s employer or family will put up money. Other times, a city council will offer a reward in a local resident’s death. In the case of former beauty queen Barbara Rogers, 60, whose body was found Aug.15, the reward money was put up by her friends, family, co-workers, the city of Lakewood and county Supervisor Don Knabe’s office. Sometimes, the city where the victim lived will offer a reward. last_img read more

Joe Barbera, 1911-2006

There are fewer still who touch the lives of more than one entire generation. Joe Barbera, who died Monday in his Sherman Oaks home, was one those rare people whose life’s work as an animator touched virtually every American alive today. His name alone might not seem familiar, but the names of those characters he co-created, as half of the Hanna-Barbera team, include Scooby Doo, Yogi, Tom and Jerry, Fred Flintstone and George Jetson. In losing Barbera, we lost one of the fathers of modern animation and a friend to every American who grew up watching – and loving – cartoons. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

How to Build a Team Like the NBA

first_imgIf you know me, you know I’m not a sports person. I don’t watch. I don’t follow.It’s not that I have some strong dislike for sports. It’s just that when I stopped doing them in high school, I lost all interest. I can watch them, if I am at a live event or if I don’t have an alternative. But when I’m listing things I look forward to each week, that isn’t at the top of my list. If you’re like me, then this post is still going to be valuable for you!That’s because despite my indifference to sports, at the same time it’s hard as a leader and as an HR pro not to think about some of the innate elements of building a high-performance team that stir my attention.For several months out of the year, sports fans are focused on the NBA season and its teams and players. Yet one concept that isn’t often considered is the talent management strategy behind these teams. As the New York Post notes, dozens of team changes can happen on the first day of trading. How does the free agent model of employment affect teams and performance? What might enable or prevent new talent from connecting with team members?THE CORE ELEMENT OF TEAMBUILDINGOne of the core principles of building a team is this: a team’s existing dynamics change when you add someone new to the mix. In other words, you don’t just add one or more people to an existing team — you create an entirely new team any time you make a new hire. It’s like a recipe. While you might have separate elements, once you integrate them you create something new and different each time.This concept is important to grasp, both for those leading a team and for those on it. It can be common for hiring managers to believe that adding a new hire to a team will change everything. However, it’s often a surprise to later find out that despite careful planning, things are just not the same after new talent is hired.Originally published on Upstart HR blog.last_img read more

ACA Repeal, Replace Efforts Continue; GOP Divide Narrowing, Ryan Says

first_imgCCH Tax Day ReportHouse Republicans on April 6 put forth an amendment to the proposed American Health Care Act (AHCA) (HR 1628) (TAXDAY, 2017/03/07, C.1) after ongoing meetings between the White House and House GOP lawmakers. The White House is said to have been leading efforts to bring Republicans together to reach consensus on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care (ACA) (P.L. 111-148) replacement proposal. The original bill was pulled from the House floor on March 24 before receiving a vote because Republicans could not agree on provisions either put forth in the proposal or a lack thereof (TAXDAY, 2017/03/27, C.1).“We have come together on a new amendment that we all believe will lower premiums and provide added protections for those facing real challenges getting access to affordable care,” House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said. “This brings us closer to the final agreement that we all want to achieve.” This announcement was made at Ryan’s April 6 press briefing, at which several members of the conservative Freedom Caucus and moderate Tuesday Group all stood together on stage.The amendment is being formally introduced by Reps. David Schewikert, R-Ariz., and Gary Palmer, R-Ala., both members of the Freedom Caucus. According to Palmer, the amendment implements a federal risk-sharing arrangement that has worked well in the state of Maine, a program from which the amendment is modeled. “It is a high-risk pool that will lower costs for people with preexisting conditions and lower costs for everyone else,” Ryan said.Congress may cut short its scheduled recess to return early for more work on the health care bill, according to House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif. The House is scheduled to return on April 25. “Should we be prepared to advance our bill through the House in the coming two weeks, we will advise members immediately and give you sufficient time to return to Washington,” McCarthy wrote in a memo to House Republicans, as obtained by Wolters Kluwer.According to Ryan, there is more work to be done before finalizing a new bill that would ensure the necessary Republican votes that it failed to achieve last round. Those conversations continue and look promising, Ryan told reporters.House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said on April 6, “Republicans are desperate to keep (AHCA) alive, continuing their campaign to raise massive costs on seniors and hard-working families.” Likewise, House Minority Whip Steny J. Hoyer, D-Md., criticized the AHCA and its latest amendment. “Today’s attempt by House GOP to revive the failed (AHCA) bill adds more uncertainty for markets and consumers,” he said in an April 6 tweet.By Jessica Jeane, Wolters Kluwer News StaffText of Amendment to HR 1628last_img read more

Manchester City set for 3 cheers

first_imgManchester City are on the brink of a domestic treble, with only Watford standing in their way in today’s FA Cup final at the iconic Wembley Stadium. City became the first side in a decade to retain the English Premier League title last weekend, holding off Liverpool by a single point at the end of a thrilling race thanks to a run of 14 consecutive league wins to end the season. Pep Guardiola’s men also retained the League Cup in February, the first leg of their potential domestic clean sweep, which has never before been done in England. The club have also spent much of the week preceding the Wembley showcase responding to reports that they could be set for a season’s ban from the Champions League over alleged breaches of financial fair play rules. Hornets boss Javi Gracia That issue notwithstanding however, Guardiola’s side have smashed a host of records during his three-year spell in charge, despite a disappointing trophyless debut campaign in England. And now, a first-ever clean sweep of League Cup, Premier League and FA Cup would give this City side a claim to be the best England has ever produced. “I’m desperate, desperate, desperate to win the FA Cup. You don’t even know how much it’s a priority,” said City captain Vincent Kompany after lifting the Premier League last weekend. Kompany could make his final City appearance at Wembley with the Belgian’s contract up in the summer and no new deal agreed as yet. City won their fifth FA Cup in 2011, the first silverware since Sheikh Mansour’s takeover, but will be wary of complacency after slipping up against Wigan at Wembley in 2013. In contrast to City’s trophy-laden decade, Watford have never won a major trophy. And despite losing twice to Guardiola’s men in the league this season, Hornets boss Javi Gracia, whose side mounted an impressive comeback to beat Wolves in the semi-final, is taking heart from both games. “I think it showed us it’s possible. We lost both games but I think we showed that we can beat them. We competed really well in both games. In the first game, we lost 2-1 but had chances at the end. In the second one, we kept the result until the second half and then they scored from an offside position and the game changed,” said Gracia. Catch up on all the latest sports news and updates here.
