04/23/2019 3:13am

A good Samaritan who took down a potential fire starter says the fear of another massive wildfire forced him to take action.Behind the wheel of an SUV, Richard Lazenby says he saw a man thought to be setting fires in the Sepulveda Pass on Sunday.I said, What the eff are you doing He turns and looks at me and says, Im effing destroying everything.Fearing the worst Lazenby went after the man.We stumbled over into this brush on the side and I finally got on top of him, pinned his arms down and sat on top of him, he said.Lazenby was with his wife and kids on their way home from Easter church service when the incident happened Sunday. They remember the Skirball Fire from December 2017 forced evacuations around the Getty Center. The Lazenbys left their home in Beverly Crest that day. Richard didnt want a repeat.Im proud that I did it. Im proud that I was able to hopefully stop more destruction. And that my kids could see that sometimes being a leader and doing the right thing can be dirty work.He held the unidentified man down for 15 minutes until Los Angeles police arrived, only letting the suspect sit up for a moment, when he promised not to fightback anymore. Lazenby says the fight to protect his neighborhood was worth it.

Non-Profit Donates $20K to Humane Society for New Program
04/22/2019 10:42pm

A local non-profit for domestic violence survivors donated $20,000 to the San Diego Humane Society Monday to start a program for survivors and their pets.Kathys Legacy Foundation presented its donation at 11 a.m. Monday at the San Diego Humane Societys shelter on Gaines Street just outside Mission Bay. Armed Border Groups Leader Said to Have Assassination Plans Sadly, domestic violence victims feel forced to stay in abusive homes because they dont want to subject their animals to continued abuse, if left behind, Dr. Gary Weitzman, president and CEO of the San Diego Humane Society, said in a release. For that reason, it is crucial they have a safe place to turn with their pets.Kathleen Kathy Scharbarth, 34, was found strangled to death over the Thanksgiving weekend in 2011. Her ex-boyfriend was arrested on kidnapping and murder charges, which he pleaded not guilty to, before dying by suicide in a Vista jail on March 3, 2012. DC Heads to 100 Renewable Energy, a Symbolic Move for the Country Her ex-boyfriend, Michael David Robles, had a history of physical abuse, according to court documents.She was a victim of domestic violence. Kathys daughter, Madison, and her yellow Lab, Lady, were present in the home when she was murder, said Ginny Scharbarth, co-founder and executive director of Kathys Legacy Foundation. We are committed to revive hope, restore normalcy, and inspire dreams in the lives of children and their pets impacted by domestic violence. Samsung Delays Folding Phone Launch After Breaking Issues Ginny Scharbarth said Lady was like another daughter to Kathy Scharbarth.They dont want to leave their pets, but theyre in an abusive situation -- what do you do You stay for your pets as if you would stay for your children. So, this is going to make a difference for them to have a safe haven, Ginny Scharbarth said.Kathy Scharbarth and Lady were inseparable. They enjoyed long walks, cuddling, and lying in the sun. Kathy Scharbarth even spoiled Lady with turkey bacon and scrambled eggs. Lady was even kicked out of a few training classes, Ginny Scharbarth said with a smile.Sadly, Lady witnessed Kathys murder. It was evident she missed Kathy by her somber demeanor. Lady was a victim of domestic violence as well, said Ginny Scharbarth.Weitzman said there is a direct link between animal violence and violence that extends to humans.A domestic violence program is absolutely essential in taking in the fact that its not just the victims of domestic violence that need safe housing, but its also the animals that prevent them from finding that housing, the San Diego Humane Society CEO said. Animals like Lady, who really was Kathys daughter, I would say, at that time, and meant the world to her, who made it very difficult for her to seek housing and safety in a situation that was more dangerous than she or her family even knew.The $20,000 will go toward a new domestic violence program, according to Kathys Legacy Foundation.In September of 2012, then California Governor Jerry Brown signed the bill known as Kathys Law into law that strengthened restraining orders by allowing judges to order GPS monitoring devices for domestic violence suspects found to pose a threat to an alleged victim.In 2014, the Scharbarth family created Kathys Legacy Foundation with the intentions of turning their tragedy into hope for others.How do you not smile This is her legacy. Im smiling -- Im proud, Ginny Scharbarth told NBC 7.April is Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month, which the foundation said was the perfect time to announce the partnership.Photo Credit: Kathys Legacy Foundation

Alleged USC Sex Assault Victims Push for State Law
04/22/2019 10:18pm

Alicia Fraser-Stanley says she was 18 attending the University of Southern California when she went for an appointment with former school gynecologist George Tyndall.His hands were wandering nowhere near where they should have been wandering, Fraser Stanley said. I told him my ovary is nowhere near there. USC Confirms Investigation Into Longtime Gynecologist Cynthia Jansen was also a young college student in 1989 when she says she was touched inappropriately by Tyndall.It was invasive, said Jansen, a former USC student. First thing I thought was, My god, thats the guy. Sometimes it does take over 10 years or almost 20 years in my case to feel like you are back to yourself again. $215 Million USC Settlement Related to Gynecologist Includes Sweeping School Reforms They are among a growing number of people pushing for a new state law that would allow more alleged victims of sex assaults to sue the university by extending the statute of limitations which sets a time limit for filing a lawsuit after an alleged incident.On Tuesday many former students, including Fraser-Stanley, plan to go to Sacramento and call for a change in state law. The assembly committee is set to review the bill, AB1510. Both Alicia and Fraser-Stanleys alleged incidents with Tyndall are outside of the statute of limitations. The women say they want a chance to have their stories heard in court. They have filed a lawsuit, but before it can move forward they have to successfully argue that the current statute of limitations should not apply in their case. It is a big issue, according to their attorney, who also believes that they have grounds to legally move forward. Grand Jury Hearing Evidence Against gainst Dr. George Tyndal The two women say they are speaking out about what happened after hundreds of reports of sexual misconduct and sexual abuse allegations against Tyndall surfaced, who denies all allegations of sexual assault and inappropriate behavior.Lawmakers in the state capitol are looking to remove time restrictions when there is a sexual assault or misconduct claim by a doctor that occurs at a student health center.Its very focused, said Brian Kabateck, an attorney for the women. It simply says one year beginning in January of 2020 to file a lawsuit if you believe you are a victim of this particular incident. We are not saying that if this legislation passes, these women automatically win millions of dollars. No quite the contrary. It says the courthouse doors are open to them.A spokesperson for USC says the attempt to change the law is about money. USC says the expected minimum of their settlement is $2,500 to $250,000.In a letter to lawmakers provided to the I-Team, USC argues ... Some in the plaintiffs bar are seeking larger settlements and more leverage. Why should the rules be changed for them ...The letter points to an existing $215 million federal class-action settlement involving more than 14,000 people currently in the works, adding the settlement will offer a remedy to every single plaintiff that has been impacted by Dr. Tyndall But a judge wants more details about payments and campus reforms before the settlement can move forward.The women, meanwhile, want to say what they did not decades back.I was a mess and its taken me all this time to recover, Jansen said. Im sitting here by myself today but I dont feel like Im alone in any of this.Photo Credit: Richard Vogel/AP File

Grand Prix Set for Weekend
04/11/2019 6:38pm

By:Steve PropesIts been going strong for over 40 years. A large section of Shoreline Drive is closed down in anticipation of the 45th edition of the Grand Prix, attracting tens of thousands of IndyCar race fans to downtown Long Beach from April 12 through April 14.The new title sponsor, Acura has taken the place of Toyota Motors, which after forty years, has moved its headquarters from Torrance to Texas, thus dropping out. The move was telegraphed when Toyota dropped the pro/celebrity race in 2017. In the past, names like Bruce Jenner, Ted Nugent, Donny Osmond and Adam Corolla have won the celebrity side of the race that banged up more than its share of rides and excitement.Practice of the IndyCars will begin on Friday at 10 a.m. Along with other car and truck races, drift cars practice at 6:45 p.m. Drift has been part of the Grand Prix since 2005, the races will be on Friday and Saturday evening. Other events include a Friday night rock concert, a lifestyle expo and a kids zone with go-karts.The main event, the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach will start on Sunday at 1:42 p.m. and end at about 3:30 p.m.As with all past Grand Prix events, parking is a major challenge. Street parking anywhere near the race will be non-existent. Be aware of road closures or lane reductions, such as Alamitos Boulevard at Second Street. Public transportation is limited as the Blue Line is undergoing upgrading and is currently shut down. For those using Long Beach Transit, lines 91 and 93 are the best bet, going from east Long Beach to downtown, where a Passport bus is a free ride to the race entrance.Parking is available in the Marina lot, located on the south side of Shoreline Drive behind several grandstands. Enter off Ocean Boulevard and Alamitos Avenue. Passes are sold on a three-day basis. Parking is also available in the Shoreline lot, located west of the race circuit at the end of the 710 Freeway. A general admission three-day pass costs $95, or $147 for reserved seating. Single day tickets are also available from $33 on Friday to $90 on Sunday. Kids under 12 get free general admission with a paying adult. For more information, call the ticket office at 888-827-7333.stevebeachcomber.newsCategory: News

Bodell's Shoes Just Turned 60
04/11/2019 6:25pm

By:Steve Propes When Bodells Shoe Store opened at whats now known as Parkview Village, Ike was president, Alaska had just become a state and Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper had perished in an Iowa field, the Day the Music Died.Contemporary businesses like Thriftimart, Bob Adams, PD Carol Department Store, Roses Hardware, Thrifty Drug, Pan American Caf, Bergmans Radio and TV, Benchleys Gifts, all manner of successful retail store-fronts have come and gone.Current owner, Richard Bodell said his father, Lew Bodell worked at a full service gas station in Salt Lake City. An executive from the company that owned Leeds Shoes was so impressed by the service my dad gave him, he offered him a job. The only catch was hed have to move to California. He decided it was better than washing windows and checking oil. Bodell made the Leeds store in Long Beach the top producing California store. When they gave him an award, the executive whispered if you fail to perform, we can replace you.At that juncture, March 1, 1959, Bodell opened his own store. Richard Bodell bought the business from him over 20 years ago.Business was strong for a number of years, but, according to Bodell, Its been tough since 2008. At the end of 2007, we were just south of $1 million, but weve not been close since. The dip in the economy in 2008 and online competition have been major factors.Bodell tried online marketing, but gave that up about four years ago. Small business, thats your middle class. People that take a risk, open up a store to show the value of human encounter. Its nice to have a one and one. He has one full time, two part time employees and hires young people from both colleges and high schools.Management of Parkview Village named two routes through the center in honor of Jacks Shoe Repairs Richard Brown and Lew Bodell. It had a historical meaning, a sense of accomplishment, said Bodell. Its hard to stay in here for 60 years.Bodell emphasizes good product and customer service. I try to give the best customer service. We fit and measure feet, all kinds of things, and offer a product that serves the needs of the customer, be it orthopedic or other specialized service. Follow-up services include everything from repair to shining shoes. It keeps me on my toes. If the soles split, Ill resole them.The store carries brands made in the U.S., Europe or Israel. Some brands have changed. For instance, Clarks made a quality shoe from 1965 to 1990, but when the family closed their manufacture in England and Ireland, the brand moved to China, which has compromised the quality of the shoe.Styles are recycled, so much you can do. Fashion works in a circular fashion, 70s platforms for women are back now. Its a matter of holding on to things long enough.stevebeachcomber.newsCategory: News
