Note that several cases are listed on some court calendars for hearing at the same time; it will be the judge who determines the order in which they actually will be heard. All the scheduled listings are subject to revision.Here’s an update and profile of each of these cases.Hearing for LaMin Johnson, August 11LaMin Johnson, 46, of Pasadena, was convicted in 1999 for the murder of an Altadena nurse as she was preparing to go to work on January 3, 1997. He was also convicted on about 15 other felony counts stemming from a five-month crime rampage that he and co-defendant Jason Mency, 46, of Monrovia carried out in the west San Gabriel Valley in 1997.Mency was sentenced to 219 years behind bars plus three life prison terms and ordered to pay $600,000 in restitution.The victim, Marsha Lee Birch, was reportedly shot on her porch after she saw the defendants breaking into a vehicle nearby. The mother of four died in her husband’s arms.Hours later, Johnson and Mency were arrested in Monrovia after police investigators saw them throw a purse that when found yielded an ID card in the victim’s name.During the trial, prosecutors said the defendants used police scanners and cut alarm and phone wires to burglarize homes and cars several times a week, and shot anyone who got in the way. They called the series of burglaries one of the worst crime rampages in the San Gabriel Valley.Tuesday’s hearing will be at the Civic Center Criminal Courts Building, at 210 W. Temple St. in Los Angeles.Preliminary Hearing Setting for Daniel Cervantes, August 11Daniel Cervantes, 30, from Pomona, is facing a murder charge in connection with the shooting death of Julio Robles-Castaneda, 22, whose body was found early on November 6, 2019 along the Angeles Crest Highway in Pasadena.Cervantes was arrested the next day on Brigden Road in Pasadena, and pleaded not guilty to the charge.He has been held on a no-release bond of $2 million at the Men’s Central Jail in Los Angeles since his arrest.Arraignment for Telly R, Johnson, August 12Telly R. Johnson, 42, of Los Angeles, is facing a murder charge in connection with the stabbing death of 52-year-old Byron Nettles of Pasadena on March 1, 2019, according to Pasadena police officials and Los Angeles County coroner’s records.The stabbing attack led to the five-hour shutdown of a large, mostly-residential area of Pasadena as police hunted the suspect with a helicopter, ground officers and canine units.Reports said Nettles was the manager for the Euclid Villa Transition Housing facility overseeing occupants maintaining their sobriety and needing housing for their families. He was attacked about 9:05 a.m. at the facility in the 100 block of South Euclid Avenue. Paramedics transported him to the Huntington Hospital in Pasadena where he died of his injuries.During the police search, Mayfield Junior School was placed on lockdown and area residents were asked to shelter in place during the hours-long search.Hours later, the defendant was arrested without incident in the 1900 block of Cordova Street in Los Angeles, by joint police and U.S. Marshals of the Pacific Southwest Regional Fugitive Task Force.Johnson is currently in custody, with bail set at $2 million.Post-trial Status Conference for Richard Thompson vs. City of Pasadena, August 12Richard Thompson, a former supervisor at Pasadena’s Department of Water and Power, filed a lawsuit against the City of Pasadena alleging he was subjected to retaliation for stating that another City employee, Aurora Isabel, was denied a promotion because of her Latina ethnicity, and then testifying on her behalf at trial in 2015.The backlash allegedly included an accusation that he improperly signed a work order.In the lawsuit, Thompson said the collective retaliatory moves against him impacted his ability to obtain better job positions within the city.On June 7, 2019, a Los Angeles Superior Court jury awarded him a sum reported to be approximately $825,000.The status conference in connection with the case will be conducted on Wednesday at Dept. 16 of the County Courthouse, at 111 N. Hill St. in Los Angeles. Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Broome County delivers ‘Pay it Forward Pizza’

first_img“With the wine fairies, people were saying ‘oh that is great for the moms’ but they think it’s neat that the kids can get excited too, the whole family can get excited,” said Quigley. It is also helping those who have been struggling to put food on the table. An idea to have your favorite pizza delivered right to your door. Todd Quigley was looking to spread positivity in Broome County, and he did that with his own Facebook group. “Why not do pizza?” “When you join the group, you comment on whatever school district you belong to,” said Quigley. “It lifts my mood. I am not concentrated on things all the time that are serious and difficult.” “Two or three have reached saying they were having difficulty, and they felt guilty they wouldn’t be able to pay it forward, and I said this group isn’t going anywhere.” Quigley calls it a group that spreads pizza and positivity.center_img “Like” Jacob Seus on Facebook and “Follow” him on Twitter. “It’s just something to lift everyone’s spirits.” “It grew quickly, we are up over 500 members now,” said Quigley. The concept is easy; you deliver someone their favorite pizza. It is something that Quigley said puts a smile on people’s faces in a time where there is a lot of negativity going around BINGHAMTON (WBNG) – After the “wine fairies” Facebook group became a hit in Broome County, Todd Quigley decided to make a new group of his own. “Pay it forward Pizza,” a Facebook group where you can “crust” a member of the community.last_img read more

Incoming college athletes enter uncharted territory

first_imgPaske said he’s expecting more clarity on June 30, which is when preseason dates will be more concrete. For now, Paske is utilizing this time out of school to improve his game. “Like” Nicole Menner on Facebook and “Follow” her on Twitter. Cappellett will attend Elon University in North Carolina, and after a team conference call today, she learned her move in date has been pushed back. “It’s just giving me more time to get ready, and to the point where I need to be,” said Paske. “I was going to go up in July, right around the fourth and start doing workouts with the team and stuff,” Paske said. For Paske, his next stop is playing football at Colgate University. As of right now, everything is as planned. In a worse-case scenario, they will have to wait to begin their collegiate-athletic careers until 2021. Chenango Forks senior Matt Paske and Vestal senior Emilia Cappellett are set to continue their athletic careers this fall. Similarly, Cappellett has workouts provided by Elon, which include running and lifting. Cappellett added she and her friends are looking forward to working out together in preparation, once Vestal’s turf field reopens. center_img Cappellett and Paske said they have not been informed of any changes that may be implemented to make playing amid the pandemic safer. Both added they would find it difficult to play their respective sports wearing masks, if that is enforced. In meantime, both are keeping a positive mindset. “It’s new to everyone and everyone has to go through this change at some point,” said Cappellett. “Especially going into the next season, not having my first season, kind of the transitional season getting used to everything, would be weird,” said Cappellett. Paske added that wouldn’t be ideal, and he hopes it doesn’t come to that. “It gives me more time to prepare for that level of play and the new speed of the game because it will be a little faster than high school.” “Move in day was supposed to be August 3 and it got pushed to August 18. It pretty much affects our season, because now we don’t have much time, maybe a week before our first game and our game schedule is shortened,” Cappellett says. (WBNG) — A number of high school athletes across the Southern Tier are taking their talents to college this fall, but their transition won’t be how they imagined amid the pandemic. last_img read more

South African trade mission to build links with Ghana and Nigeria

first_img12 August 2015Trade and Industry Deputy Minister Mzwandile Masina will lead a team of South African businesspeople on a trade mission to the Ghana and Nigeria from 17 to 21 August, with the goal to find a suitable platform for South African companies to promote and sell products and services in the African market.“The mission will serve as an ideal opportunity for South African companies to export value-added products and services to Ghana and Nigeria, and for penetration of companies that are looking for investment opportunities in these African countries,” the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) said yesterday.“The mission presents the DTI with an opportunity to continue to pursue economic collaboration and partnerships with African countries. This as we continue crafting the way forward for economic development and the development of investment in the African continent,” Masina added.South Africa had taken a conscious decision to partner with Nigeria – one of Africa’s fastest growing economies – during their development phases. Both countries, like much of Africa, presented a wealth of business opportunities for South African companies, he said.Bilateral trade between South Africa and Ghana has grown in the last half- decade, from R2.6-billion to R10.8-billion between 2010 and 2014. While trade between South Africa and Nigeria has fluctuated during the same period, it has broadly been upward, going from R20.5-billion in 2010 to R66.2-billion in 2014.Industries earmarked for the trade mission include agriculture and agro- processing, build environment professionals, infrastructure, furniture and wood processing, and mining. The programme will include trade and investment seminars, exhibitions, business to business meetings and site visits.Source: News24Wirelast_img read more

Solar Loans Are Getting Easier to Find

first_imgLoans available in every stateSunPower/Admirals Bank loans are available in amounts up to $60,000 and are available all over the country.The company hasn’t responded to requests for more information on the loan program, including when loans might be available and what the terms might be. The company’s web site has a section on its lease program, but nothing so far on the loans.Separately, Admirals offers its own loan program for renewables and energy efficiency improvements, including solar, small wind, and geothermal projects. Those loans are available all over the country.The bank’s website describes a two-tiered loan program, with maximums set at $25,000 and $40,000. In a post at CleanTechnica, Zachary Shahan writes that borrowers in the first tier program must have a credit score of 650 or better. To qualify for a $40,000 loan, you’ll need a credit score of 700 or higher.The interest rate is 4.95%, with terms of between 5 and 20 years.Whether homeowners add solar with a lease, a power purchase agreement or a purchase financed with a loan, payments for electricity may be lower than if the power were purchased from the utility, MarketWatch said. SunPower also points to higher property values with the addition of rooftop solar. Homeowners looking for a way to finance new rooftop solar systems now have more options than local banks and credit unions.SunPower Corp., the country’s second-largest maker of solar panels, said on June 16 it had worked out a $200 million loan agreement with Admirals Bank that would fund residential solar projects over the next two years, according to a report at MarketWatch.And in an expansion of a program first announced in March, solar middleman Solar Mosaic Inc. is making crowdsourced solar loans available directly to homeowners online. Borrowers can apply online in two minutes or less, the company promises.Like solar leasing programs offered by installers such as SolarCity, loans allow homeowners to get into renewables with little or no upfront charges. The difference is that homeowners who lease don’t build any equity in their systems. Mosaic taps crowdsourced investorsUnlike a bank, Mosaic doesn’t have a stack of cash on hand that it can loan to homeowners. Instead, the company appeals to potential investors in a process called “crowdsourcing.” Investors come up with the cash and are repaid by the homeowner via loan payments. Mosaic signs the loan agreement with the homeowner, and a separate deal with investors.Asked for details on how the system works, company spokesman Katie Ullmann referred GBA to a blog written by Ann Werner in May. In it, Werner says the process from application to final permitting takes between three and four months.For the first 18 months of the loan, the interest rate is 4.99%. At that point, homeowners have the option of paying Mosaic an amount equal to the 30% federal tax credit available for renewables, and keeping the 4.99% rate, or pocketing the credit and seeing the rate go to 10%.Investors are earning between 4.5% and 7%, Ullmann said. Mosaic charges investors 0.5%.Terms for the zero-down loans are for up to 20 years, and loan amounts are up to $50,000. For the time being, loans are available only in California, although Mosaic says it plans to expand into other areas later this year.last_img read more

This is my game, this is my fight, I am the boss.” Canelo Alvarez, left, and Gennady Golovkin pose for photographers during a news conference Wednesday, Sept. 13, 2017, in Las Vegas. The two are scheduled to fight in a middleweight title fight Saturday in Las Vegas. (AP Photo/John Locher)Las Vegas, United States — Now that the Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor circus has left town, attention shifts to Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez and their showdown for middleweight boxing supremacy.For those who were disappointed by last month’s so-called superfight between a boxer and a UFC fighter that was staged before a less-than capacity crowd, Saturday’s sold out world title contest at the same T-Mobile Arena will be welcome change.ADVERTISEMENT Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. “We know that in fights, it takes two to tango. I’m ready, and you know what you’ll get from me.”Alvarez, who is gunning for his 50th career win, is coming off a lopsided win over of Chavez on May 6. He beat Chavez by unanimous decision as all three judges scored it 120-108.In his last fight, Golovkin outpointed Daniel Jacobs at Madison Square Garden in New York. Jacobs had an unexpected surge over the final three rounds before losing by a narrow decision which led some to believe that the 35-year-old Golovkin might be starting to show his age.Alvarez’s biggest fight before this one was a 12-round loss to Mayweather in 2013 in an entertaining fight which Mayweather deserved to win. Alvarez was also held to a draw by journeyman Jorge Juarez in 2006 when he was 15.Alvarez’s trainer Eddy Reynoso said his fighter has improved a lot since the Mayweather loss.Learn from mistakes“He is more mature, a more complete fighter,” said Reynoso on Thursday at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino. “You always learn something from victories but defeats teach you more.“You can see the mistakes you made and you learn not to go that route again. He learned a lot from that defeat to become a better fighter.”Golovkin is one of the best conditioned athletes in the sport. He even missed the birth of his second child on Friday because he was in the gym training. He stayed in the gym for two hours after his wife, Alina, gave birth to the couple’s first daughter.Golovkin may be the champion but he is not the overwhelming favorite and Sanchez says the crowd inside T-Mobile will be decidedly for Alvarez.Golovkin said even if the crowd is for Alvarez he will enter and leave the ring as the champion.
