A.V. robbery suspect was from O.C.

first_img White was found in the back seat of the 2000 Honda sedan, and deputies also found a handgun in the car. The three were suspected of robbing a Bank of America branch at Avenue J and 20th Street East about 10:30 a.m. This was at least the second robbery at the bank, which opened this year, deputies said. The robbers disarmed a security guard but when they fled, the guard followed them and gave directions to deputies until they caught up, officials said.

You’re all set! McElderry said the La Palma address was what was listed on identification found on White and it was not known whether that was his current residence. Taken into custody after the robbery and short pursuit were 28-year-old Joseph Walker of North Hollywood, and a 17-year-old boy from Lake Los Angeles whose name was not released, deputies said. “I don’t know what the connection is. It was kind of an unusual crew,” McElderry said. The getaway car stopped beside the curb on Avenue K-6 in the Lancaster Business Park, at the rear of a Los Angeles County Department of Public Social Services building. The driver of the vehicle got out of the car, a shot was heard, and then a second suspect exited the vehicle, deputies said. There were no shots fired by deputies. LANCASTER – The suspected bank robber who shot himself to death last week after sheriff’s deputies stopped his getaway car was identified Monday as Jeremy Lamar White, 19, of La Palma in Orange County. Chased by a security guard Friday, the getaway car containing White and two accomplices was spotted by deputies about three miles from the bank and pulled to the curb in a business park, where deputies said they heard a single shot from inside the car. “Let’s just say that it was obvious that they were caught and that’s what happened,” sheriff’s homicide Detective Dan McElderry said. “Lots of times people take drastic measures when it looks like they are going to jail.” Los Angeles County coroner officials said White died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. last_img read more

Opioid epidemic hits close to home in Ohio

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Ohio now leads the nation in opioid-related overdose deaths with a record 4,050 drug overdose deaths reported in 2016, a 33% increase from 2015, according to the Ohio Department of Health. And, some 60% of those abusing or dependent on opioids in the state lack access to appropriate treatment, said Mark Partridge, chair of the C. William Swank Program in Rural-Urban Policy at The Ohio State University and professor in the Department of Agricultural, Environmental, and Development Economics.These unsettling statistics have encouraged Ohioans (rural, urban and everywhere in between) to ramp up the battle against the state’s devastating opioid epidemic. An event, “Hope for Ohio: A teen forum on the opioid crisis” will combine the efforts of Ohio State University Extension 4-H Healthy Living Advocates, Ohio Farm Bureau, Ohio FFA, and the Prevention Action Alliance on Saturday, Dec. 2, 2017 at the Nationwide & Ohio Farm Bureau 4-H Center. The event will take place 10 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. and the registration deadline is Nov. 22. The forum is designed to educate and prepare both teens and adults to take action against drug abuse in their communities. Highlights include a presentation from Tyler’s Light, a town hall with Ohio Legislators, and programming from Prevention Action Alliance. The day will conclude with an inspirational sendoff from David Kohout. Registration is online at https://ohio4h.org/events/hope-ohio-teen-forum-opioid-crisis and the cost is $10.According to a report recently released by researchers with the OSU Swank program, medication-assisted treatment is the most clinically effective and cost-efficient method for reducing opioid addiction, abuse and overdose death.“As it now stands, Ohio likely only has the capacity to treat 20 to 40% of the estimated 92,000 to 170,000 Ohioans who are abusing or dependent on opioids,” Partridge said. “Enacting new laws to take down pill mills and lessen access to prescription opioid drugs alone isn’t going to fix the problem. We need a broader-based approach that includes working with physicians and hospitals in underserved areas to encourage providers to obtain the waiver required to prescribe opioid treatments to their patients.“As it now stands, many people in rural areas of Ohio have extremely limited access to medication-assisted treatment, which is a particularly critical issue in the rural areas of southwest Ohio where opioid abuse rates are high, but local access to treatment is limited.”The 2017 analysis, Taking Measure of Ohio’s Opioid Crisis, is 22 pages and available to download free online at go.osu.edu/takingmeasure. The report says medication-assisted treatment has shown to be a clinically effective and cost-efficient approach to treating opioid addiction, with three common medications used in the treatment of opioid addition: methadone, buprenorphine and naltrexone.Yet, Ohio has only 26 certified methadone treatment centers and 377 doctors who are certified to prescribe buprenorphine.“It has been estimated that for every dollar spent on methadone and buprenorphine treatment, $1.80 in social savings would be realized,” said Mike Betz, report co-author and assistant professor in Ohio State’s Department of Human Sciences.Betz said there needs to be a shift in emphasis from stopping pill mills and over-prescribing to treating those already addicted to bring them into the mainstream and assist them in becoming more productive.“We need a two-pronged approach,” Betz said. “Treatment and a leg up economically through investments in the education, skills, physical health and mental health of Ohio citizens.”Opioid drugs, including prescription painkillers and heroin, killed more than 33,000 people nationwide in 2015, more than any year on record, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. There were 3,050 overdose deaths in Ohio in 2015, with 58.2% of the deaths blamed on the use of fentanyl and its derivatives, an opioid 50 times stronger than heroin, officials said.The annual cost of opiate abuse, addiction and overdoses to Ohio is estimated to be between $6.6 billion to $8.8 billion, the report said.Report co-author Mark Rembert puts the looming figure in perspective.“Our estimates suggest that the total social and economic costs of the opioid crisis are similar to what the state spends on K-12 education,” said Rembert, report co-author and co-founder of Energize Clinton County, a community economic development non-profit. “The opioid crisis is draining resources that could otherwise be used to support the economic development of the state.”Partridge said both attention and funding from the federal government are crucial in making a dent in the opioid abuse problem because states like Ohio are already too stretched.“A federal-state solution is key,” Partridge said. “The federal government has the resources and best practices necessary to tackle a public health and economic challenge of this magnitude.”Another key finding from the report is that there is a robust and direct correlation between unemployment rates and opiate overdoses and deaths. Individuals living in high-unemployment regions of the state tend to also have high levels of opioid abuse.“There is also a cumulative disadvantage,” said Bo Feng, a co-author of the report and a Swank research associate. “The longer people are unemployed, the more opiate abuse and overdoses occur.”Partridge said improving the labor market in hard-hit communities would help.“Middle- and lower-class families need sufficient incomes and stability,” Partridge said. “While that is a harder policy level to pull, it’s imperative to make any real change.”last_img read more

BSP to contest 38 seats in U.P. as SP settles for 37; RLD to get 3

first_imgThe Samajwadi Party (SP) and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) on Thursday announced that they will contest 75 out of the 80 Lok Sabha seats in Uttar Pradesh in the 2019 general election, practically ruling out any possibility of the Congress joining the anti-BJP alliance in the State.While the SP will contest 37, the BSP will fight it out in 38 seats, the presidents of the two parties, Akhilesh Yadav and Mayawati, said in a joint statement.The names of the candidates have not been announced. Out of the remaining five seats, three will go to the Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD). The RLD brushed aside all speculation of being in talks with the Congress, and affirmed that it was a part of the SP-BSP alliance. The three seats for the RLD are Muzaffarnagar, Baghpat and Mathura. RLD chief Ajit Singh is expected to fight from Muzaffarnagar while vice-president Jayant Chaudhary is likely to contest from Baghpat, considered the pocket borough of the family.The alliance has decided to not field any candidates in Rae Bareli and Amethi, currently held by Sonia Gandhi and Congress president Rahul Gandhi. Some key constituencies, held by high-profile BJP leaders, including Varanasi, Lucknow, Gorakhpur, Kairana, Phulpur, Allahabad, Azamgarh and Faizabad, have been allotted to the SP. While Varanasi is the constituency of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Gorakhpur is the bastion of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and Lucknow is currently held by Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh. However, in 2018, the SP wrested Phulpur and Gorakhpur with the support of the BSP and the Nishad Party in a by-poll, while in Kairana the RLD defeated the BJP as a united Opposition experimented in poll management.The SP’s seats include Kannauj, where Mr. Akhilesh Yadav is expected to contest, and Mainpuri, considered a stronghold of SP founder Mulayam Singh. Mulayam’s poserMoments before the list was released, however, SP chief Akhilesh Yadav was once again embarrassed by his father Mulayam Singh, who questioned the distribution of seats, saying it would weaken the SP. “On what basis were half the seats given (to the BSP),” the SP patriarch asked, while addressing party workers at the party headquarters. The seats in the BSP’s list of 38 include Saharanpur, Meerut, Aligarh, Bijnor, and Bulandshahr. Out of the 17 reserved (SC) seats in teh State, the BSP is contesting 10 while the SP has got seven. The reserved seats include Agra, Nagina and Bulandshahr. While the BSP has no members in the current Lok Sabha, the SP has seven. The RLD holds the Kairana seat.RLD vice-president Jayant Chaudhary said his party was regularly working for an “effective opposition unity” against the anti-farmer, anti-youth and anti-Dalit policies of the BJP government.last_img read more

Crime Stoppers using Cree language to help solve historical missing persons cases

first_imgPriscilla WolfAPTN NewsIt’s a project that has been three years in the making but on Monday, Crime Stoppers sent out a video letter in the Cree “th” dialect through social media to help reach more people who can help solve cases now labelled as historical missing persons cases.The video in Woodlands Cree is part of the Historical Missing Persons Project launched by Crime Stoppers.Constable Ryan Ehalt is with the Saskatoon Police Service and is the coordinator for Saskatoon Crime Stoppers.“We came up with the idea to write social media letters called to those who took the missing,” he said. “There’s going to be a series of letters going out we already released our initial one.”Donna Merasty is a translator – and wrote out the letter in Cree.“With reconciliation it is important that we communicate in a way where people feel more comfortable especially in their own language,” she said.“If they want to speak to somebody in Cree they can phone the police and ask for a Cree translator.”The overall message is powerful and asks Cree speakers if they can help by coming forward with any information that will help solve these historical missing persons cases.“We are hoping we can find a Dene speaking individual who would like to volunteer their time to help with the translation of this letter as will and other languages,” said Ehalt.“We know out of those 131 historical missing persons half of them are Indigenous. We know not all of them have been taken.”pwolf@aptn.calast_img read more

Steven Gerrard Kyle Lafferty is back to his best

first_imgRangers Coach Steven Gerrard has lauded the contribution of Kyle Lafferty who came on as a substitute in Rangers’ midweek Europa League draw against Villarreal.However, he insisted sentiments will not be considered in his decision on whether he starts against his former team Hearts on Sunday.Rangers will be needing the experience of the Northern Irishman in a match which a win could take them top of the Ladbrokes Premiership for the first time since Steven Gerrard took over.“I thought Kyle was excellent when he came on,” Gerrard told The Herald.Steven Gerrard, Michael OwenOwen reveals why Liverpool didn’t offer Gerrard a new contract Manuel R. Medina – September 6, 2019 According to Owen, the Reds wanted to sell Gerrard two years before he left the club and that’s why they didn’t offer him a contract renewal.“That is the Lafferty we want. He was aggressive, putting himself about, difficult to play against and nearly got the winner with an unbelievable strike. He will play a big part from now until the end of the season but there will be no sentiment involved because it is his old club.”On the atmosphere of the Tynecastle, Gerrard said:“It is a narrow pitch, a little bit tighter to what we are used to here at Ibrox,”“But it is the same for both teams. It is a wicked little atmosphere and I am looking forward to the game. I am sure it will be feisty at times this weekend. But I don’t mind that, I am all for that, I used to love playing in those ones.”last_img read more
