Community Housing Opportunities Corporation (CHOC), a non-profit affordable housing developer, has been awarded $22.6 million of financing to begin construction of the Coachella Valley Apartments, which will bring new affordable housing units to Coachella.

It is the second affordable housing project CHOC has announced in the Coachella Valley this year. “CHOC has long focused on the housing needs of struggling families in the Coachella Valley and remained focused on this region even as the global pandemic presented unforeseen challenges,” said Vincent Nicholas, Vice President of Real Estate Development for CHOC. “This funding comes as part of a highly competitive process, and CHOC’s ability to provide…

Ca. Supreme Court Won’t Hear Case of Deadly Road Rage Shooting in Long Beach

Share this article:The California Supreme Court refused Wednesday to review the case of a Long Beach resident convicted of a road-rage shooting that killed a man and wounded the victim’s girlfriend. Joseph Jeremy Bronson, now 30, was convicted of second-degree murder and attempted murder for the March 7, 2017, shooting in the 200 block of Liberty Court in Long Beach that left 22-year-old Trevor McCrainey dead and his girlfriend injured. In a March 30 ruling, a three-justice panel from California’s 2nd District Court of Appeal rejected the defense’s contention that the trial court had erred by failing to instruct jurors in Bronson’s trial about voluntary manslaughter based on the heat of passion. The appellate court panel noted that the evidence was undisputed that Bronson called the victim “ugly” and threw a water bottle and cup of soda at McCrainey’s Toyota Corolla after the vehicle bumped into the defendant’s BMW in the drive-thru lane at Louis Burger on Atlantic Avenue. McCrainey drove up to the drive-thru window, didn’t stop to get his food, followed Bronson’s car and approached the driver’s side of his vehicle while at…

Hispanic Coronado High alumnus says he brought tortillas to ‘help the team celebrate if they won’

CORONADO (KUSI) – Luke Serna has publicly admitted to being the person who brought the tortillas to the championship basketball game between Coronado and Orange Glen. He posted a series of tweets explaining he had no racist motive, but “was strictly wanting to help the team celebrate if they won.” Serna himself is Hispanic, and graduated from Coronado High School in 1999. He then attended and graduated from the University of Santa Barbara, where tortilla tosses were a traditional celebration for championships. Many other universities across the country hold or have held tortilla tosses as a celebratory tradition, since they can easily be thrown like frisbees to travel long distances. Baylor, Michigan, Cal Poly, and Texas Tech are just a few of the major universities that have traditional tortilla tosses. In another tweet, Serna says he supplied all this information to the Coronado Union School Board before their Tuesday meeting, “but they seemed to feel the need to withhold it.”   KUSI has reached out to the Coronado Unified School District asking why they withheld this information from the public, but have yet to hear…

Travelers Championship Preview: ‘Anything Can Happen In The Last Four Holes,’ Says CBS Sports’ Ian Baker-Finch

(CBS New York) — The PGA Tour returns from the West Coast for the Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands. After braving Torrey Pines at the U.S. Open, a strong field will face a different sort of course. TPC River Highlands offers up its fair share of scoring opportunities. Defending champion Dustin Johnson shot a third-round 61 last year, which was still three strokes short of Jim Furyk’s course-record 58 in 2016. Last year, the Travelers was the third tournament after golf’s COVID-forced layoff. But it was the first of the three events to occur on its originally scheduled date. No fans attended, of course. But this year, approximately 10,000 spectators will be on hand each day. They’ll get to see how Johnson reacts to slipping to second in the world golf rankings. His win at last year’s Travelers was the first of three wins in a season that ended with the FedExCup. But his play has dropped off some this year. He tied for 19th at the U.S. Open last week and 10th at the Palmetto Championship the week before. “He’s obviously got pretty…

LA City Council Passes Ordinance Banning Landlords From Harassing Tenants

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – The Los Angeles City Council Wednesday adopted an ordinance that would prevent landlords from harassing tenants by eliminating services, withholding repairs or refusing to accept rent payments. The Anti-Harassment of Tenant Ordinance, which has been under discussion since February of 2017, passed unanimously 13-0. It now goes to L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti for his signature. The ordinance required unanimous approval to be adopted on its first consideration. If it had not, it would have needed a second vote next week, when at least eight council members would have had to vote to approve it. This also comes after the L.A. County Board of Supervisors Tuesday extended the eviction moratorium to Sept. 30. Gov. Gavin Newsom has also said California will pay off all past-due rent that accumulated because of the fallout from the coronavirus pandemic. The draft ordinance defines tenant harassment in several ways, including reducing or eliminating housing services, such as parking, failing to perform necessary repairs and maintenance, abusing the right to access a rental unit, threatening a tenant with physical harm, misrepresenting to a tenant that he or…

More options for young boxers with San Bernardino County deputy’s new program

Established in February, The Art of War Boxing Club is a nonprofit serving the children of San Bernardino and surrounding cities. The program, which was initially created for San Bernardino residents, saw huge support from the community and parents in neighboring cities also started making requests to have their children involved. The program now serves all surrounding cities. Our youth had many activities to do during the coronavirus pandemic, including online learning and coaching. But some were looking to get outside and learn while they communicated with peers. The Art of War Boxing Club was founded by San Bernardino County sheriff’s Deputy Art Satterwhite III. Satterwhite was inspired to create this program by his 8-year-old son, Arther Satterwhite IV, who wanted to follow in his father’s footsteps and compete in boxing. The country went on lockdown in 2020 and prevented Satterwhite’s son from being able to compete for awhile. When the country started to slowly open back up earlier this year, Deputy Satterwhite decided to not only prepare his son to compete but he also extended his services to other children who have faced the…
