The Campers Return to Sycamore Grove

by LA1 News

   The line of recreational vehicles taking up residency across the street from Sycamore Park have returned. The campers were towed last month, in what one of CD1 Council Member Gil Cedillo's staff aides described as a public health hazard. Some local residents had been calling for their removal for over a year. Parents and staff at Arroyo Seco Museum Science Magnet School have described walking with their students past the area, witnessing disgusting sights of urine and feces-filled buckets outside the vehicles, and open drug use. After the murder of 19-year-old homeless youth Kaelyn Michael Tarin on January 17, just 200 meters or so away from the staging area, it appeared that enough was enough. The vehicles were quickly towed away one morning, forcing the vehicle owners to find somewhere else to go.

That North Korean Satellite is Orbiting Over Louisiana Right Now

by David Bloom

The "scientific" satellite which North Korea claims it launched into orbit atop the Kwangmyongsong-4, long-range missile Saturday was apparently a success. North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) has officially added the satellite to its list of official devices in orbit around the Earth, and it is passing over the state of Louisiana right now.

Actually, according to NORAD, North Korea now has two satellites circling the Earth. The first satellite, which the regime claims to be the result of its third successful long-range missile launch into space, was placed into orbit in 2012. Saturday's second successful satellite launch was North Korea's fourth venture into space. Launched for "weather forecasting" and other scientific purposes according to the regime, it is also likely to be collecting images when it passes over the United States.

LAPD Arrests "Father" Erwin Mena for Fraud

by LA1 News

The NELA Catholic community was dealt a seriously negative blow alongside other California parishes with the news on Tuesday of the arrest of “Father” Erwin Mena for fraud. His alleged deceit in Los Angeles includes misrepresentation as a priest at Saint Ignatius Parish in Highland Park and Saint Bernard Parish in Glassell Park.

The Vicar for Clergy Office for the Archdiocese of Los Angeles cannot verify the status of “Father” Erwin Mena, whose full name is shown as Erwin Arnoldo Mena Castro, and who uses any combination of those names.

Mena is alleged to have embezzled funds here, in San Bernardino, and even up in Stockton. He is said to have organized trips and performed wedding rites with parishioners at Saint Ignatius Parish and elsewhere, resulting in the embezzlement of over $15,000 from his victims.
