At one point there were 29 cannabis dispensaries operating without city approval.Only Kush 20 remains open. According to Code Compliance Officer Jon Pollard, since 2016, hundreds of citations have been written to illegally operating dispensaries.A Pasadena property owner where the dispensary is housed on Walnut Street is appealing a Code Enforcement Commission panel decision ordering he require a cannabis business to cease operating on property he owns.In a 2-1 decision December, the Code Enforcement Commission formally ordered the closure of Kush 20 House, at 1644 East Walnut Street owned by Ararat Avanasiyan and his brother Yeros Avanessian (each spells his last name differently), who was removed from the city’s complaint in December.Only six dispensaries have advanced in the city’s process that allows them to legally sell cannabis.

Currently, there is only one illegally-operating dispensary left in Pasadena, and efforts are underway to seek its closure,” Derderian said.“Recognizing the problems that illegal cannabis dispensaries create for adjoining areas, we will continue to aggressively protect our residents from all illegal uses.” Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Community News Your email address will not be published.

Helmets should also be worn at all times when operating quads.Agricultural vehicles are required to be taxed, insured and must be roadworthy, and have fully operational lights both in the front and rear. They are also liable to seizure in the same way that a car/van is liable to seizure for no driving licence, insurance, tax expired for two months or more, no test/NCT, unaccompanied drivers etc. if detected on public roads.Regular safety checks are essential on all agricultural vehicles and An Garda Síochána is asking all owners to play their part in keeping everyone safe both on and off the road.• Use the flashing amber beacon at all times in accordance with lighting and visibility laws• Keep tractor windows and mirrors clean to allow an unobscured view• Keep tractors in good serviceable and road worthy condition• Keep steering systems and all brakes working correctly• Apply the handbrake before leaving the cab, remove key from engine and dismount facing the tractor.•Be mindful of overhead wires if operating tall machinery.”Cyclists are regarded as vulnerable road users and motorists need to exercise care when encountering cyclists, alone or in groups,” Chief Supt McGinn said.Cyclists are also reminded to adhere to the rules of the road, cycle no more than two abreast and as close to the left hand side of the road as possible. Suitable lighting must be used during lighting up hours and cyclists should ensure they wear appropriate reflective clothing during these periods.last_img read more

first_imgDNY59/iStock(GORDON, Wis.) — Jayme Closs vowed to never let her kidnapper take her freedom or her spirit from her in a powerful statement read at the sentencing hearing of Jake Patterson, the 21-year-old Wisconsin man who pleaded guilty to abducting 13-year-old Closs, killing her parents and then holding her captive until she escaped.“I was smarter,” Closs said through a statement read in court on her behalf Friday. “I watched his routine and I took back my freedom. I will always have my freedom and he will not. Jake Patterson can never take my courage. He thought he could control me, but he couldn’t.”Patterson pleaded guilty in March to two counts of first-degree intentional homicide for shooting and killing Closs’ parents on Oct. 15, 2018, and one count of kidnapping for taking the couple’s only child from her home in rural Barron, Wisconsin.He faces up to life in prison.“I was brave and he was not. He can never take away my spirit,” Closs said in a statement read by an attorney on her behalf Friday. “He can’t ever change me or take away who I am. He can’t stop me from being happy and moving forward with my life. I will go on to do great things in my life and he will not.”Patterson is accused of shooting and killing Closs’ mother at point-bank range in front of the 13-year-old.“I loved my mom and dad very much… he took them away from me forever,” Closs’ statement read. “I felt safe in my home and I loved my room and all of my belongings. He took all of that, too. I don’t want to even see my home or my stuff because of the memory of that night. My parents and my home were the most important things in my life.”“I have to have an alarm in the house now just so I can sleep,” Closs said. “It’s too hard for me to go out in public. I get scared and I get anxious.”However, the teen insisted, “Jake Patterson will never have any power over me.”“I feel like I have some power over him because I get to tell the judge what I think should happen to him,” her statement read. “For 88 days he tried to steal me and he didn’t care who he hurt or who he killed to do that. He should stay locked up forever.”Closs’ relatives, including aunt Sue Allard and cousin Lindsey Smith, also spoke in court Friday, urging the judge to sentence Patterson to the maximum for each count.“My sister and brother-in-law were such loving and giving and beautiful people,” Allard said at Friday’s sentencing. “It was senseless.”“Oct. 14 was a typical family event with nothing but happiness,” said Smith. “We spent the next 88 days living in fear, pain and not knowing what happened to our family.”“On the 88th day we were finally told that Jayme would be coming home,” Smith said. “We were so glad that Jayme was home… but you took so much from Jayme. You took her parents, her home, her childhood and all of her happiness.”“You took so much from all of us. You took my aunt and uncle from me,” Smith said. “The last moments of my aunt’s life were the worst and scariest moments of her life. No one should leave this earth in such a horrible way.”Patterson held Closs captive in his home in Gordon, Wisconsin, for 88 days, until she escaped on Jan. 10, according to court documents.Patterson confessed to investigators that he targeted Closs after seeing her board a school bus, according to a criminal complaint.After Patterson fled with the girl to his home, he created a space for Closs under his bed. When he would leave the house, he would put barbells and free weights around the bed so she couldn’t escape, according to the complaint.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

first_imgSamara Heisz/iStock(NEW YORK) — A pandemic of the novel coronavirus has now infected more than half a million people around the world since the first cases were detected in Wuhan, China, in December.There are more than 533,000 diagnosed cases of COVID-19, the disease caused by the new respiratory virus, and over 24,000 people have died, according to data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University.The United States has at least 86,000 cases of COVID-19, the highest number in the world. Nearly 1,300 people have died in the U.S. Here’s how the news is developing Friday. All times Eastern:8:20 a.m.: NYC mayor projects half of city will be infectedIn New York City — the epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic — Mayor Bill de Blasio projects “over half the people in this city will ultimately be infected.”“For over 80% [there] will be very little impact,” de Blasio told ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos on Good Morning America. “But 20% of the people infected, it’s going to be tough, and for some of them, it will be fatal.”New York City has over 23,112 diagnosed cases — more than a quarter of the confirmed cases in the country.At least 365 people have died in New York City, twice as many deaths as any state.The mayor said the city has enough hospital supplies to get through this week and next week but “that’s all I can guarantee, and after that unfortunately, we think this crisis is going to grow through April into May. ““We need help now. When the president says the state of New York doesn’t need 30,000 ventilators, with all due respect to him, he’s not looking at the facts of this astronomical growth of this crisis,” de Blasio said. “A ventilator means someone lives or dies … if they don’t get a ventilator, a lot of people won’t make it.”The city needs 15,000 ventilators, he warned.“We have some, and I’m thankful for that, but it has to keep coming,” de Blasio said. “The president has to make that contract happen with the companies that can create ventilators not just for New York City and New York state, but for the whole country. This is going to get worse before it gets better … all parts of this country are going to need them.”De Blasio called the president’s goal to reopen the country for Easter “a false hope.”“It would be better for the president to be blunt with people that we’ve got a really tough battle ahead,” the mayor said. “Throw in the military who are not yet being fully engaged, and they’re ready, but the president has to give the order. Build those ventilators, get the supplies all over this country. People are going to need it in April and in May.”7:29 a.m.: UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson tests positive for COVID-19United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson said Friday morning that he has tested positive for the coronavirus.“Over the last 24 hours I have developed mild symptoms and tested positive for coronavirus,” Johnson tweeted. “I am now self-isolating, but I will continue to lead the government’s response via video-conference as we fight this virus. Together we will beat this.”Johnson was tested on the advice of England’s chief medical officer, according to a Downing Street spokesperson.“We will get through it,” Johnson said in a video message Friday.5:19 a.m.: Michigan health system develops contingency plan to deny ventilators and ICU treatmentA Michigan health system has come up with a contingency plan for doctors to make life-or-death decisions when treating patients in the coronavirus pandemic.A draft letter from Henry Ford Health Systems outlining the plan to families was widely shared on Twitter late Thursday night. The plan, typed on what appeared to be hospital letterhead, said that coronavirus patients with the best chance of surviving will be “our first priority,” while those who are “extremely sick and very unlikely to survive” will receive “pain control and comfort measures” rather than ventilators and intensive care treatment.“Treating these patients would take away resources for patients who might survive,” the letter stated. “This decision will be based on medical condition and likelihood of getting better.”Responding to a flurry tweets about the letter, Henry Ford Health Systems confirmed its accuracy but clarified that the policy has not yet been implemented.“With a pandemic, we must be prepared for worst case,” the company tweeted. “With collective wisdom from our industry, we crafted a policy to provide guidance for making difficult patient care decisions. We hope never to have to apply them. We will always utilize every resource to care for our patients.”4:37 a.m.: South Africa cases top 1,000 as country begins three-week lockdownThe number of confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus in South Africa has topped 1,000, the country’s health minister said Friday.Africa’s most industrialized economy has the highest national total of known cases on the continent.South Africa also recorded its first two deaths from COVID-19, both of which occurred in the Western Cape province.“This morning, we South Africans wake up with sad news that we now have our first deaths resulting from COVID-19,” South African Health Minister Zweli Mkhizethe said in a statement Friday.Friday marked the start of a three-week nationwide lockdown in South Africa, aimed at curbing the rising number of cases.3:30 a.m.: Trump and Xi discuss coronavirus crisisU.S. President Donald Trump said he spoke to Chinese President Xi Jinping about the coronavirus pandemic.Trump posted about the telephone conversation on Twitter early Thursday morning, saying they discussed the situation “in great detail.”“Just finished a very good conversation with President Xi of China,” Trump tweeted. “Discussed in great detail the CoronaVirus that is ravaging large parts of our Planet. China has been through much [and] has developed a strong understanding of the Virus. We are working closely together. Much respect!”Just finished a very good conversation with President Xi of China. Discussed in great detail the CoronaVirus that is ravaging large parts of our Planet. China has been through much & has developed a strong understanding of the Virus. We are working closely together. Much respect!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 27, 2020 Xi told Trump that “China and the United States should unite to fight the epidemic” and that he hoped “the United States will take substantive actions to improve Sino-U.S. relations,” according to Chinese state television network CCTV.The Chinese president also emphasized that the relationship between their two countries is “at a critical juncture” and that “cooperation is the only right choice,” according to CCTV.Trump has clashed with China over the global fight against the novel coronavirus, which emerged in the Chinese city of Wuhan in December 2019. The U.S. president reportedly angered Beijing officials this month when he repeatedly referred to COVID-19 as “the Chinese virus.” Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
