Governor Gavin Newsom Asked To Pardon Late Gay Rights Leader Bayard Rustin

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — The California Legislature’s LGBTQ and black caucuses on Tuesday asked Gov. Gavin Newsom to posthumously pardon a civil rights leader who was jailed for having gay sex nearly 70 years ago. Bayard Rustin was a confidant of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., along with being an organizer of the 1963 March on Washington. He also helped plan other nonviolent boycotts and protests to end racial discrimination. In 1953, he was arrested on a charge of vagrancy when he was caught having sex with two men in a parked car after he gave a speech in Pasadena as part of a lecture tour on anti-colonial struggles in West Africa, Democratic Sen. Scott Wiener of San Francisco and Assemblywoman Shirley Weber wrote on behalf of the caucuses.

University Of California Delays Vote On Raising Tuition

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – The University of California has delayed a contentious vote originally planned for Wednesday on whether to raise tuition at UC’s 10 campuses. The office of UC President Janet Napolitano issued a statement Tuesday saying it had decided to move a vote by the UC Board of Regents on two tuition proposals to a later date. It did not specify when. “We understand and take seriously the concerns by students who have requested more time to consider the proposed plans and welcome ongoing productive conversations with them,” the statement said. Also Tuesday, Gov. Gavin Newsom objected to the tuition hikes, signaling a potential political tug-of-war with the state’s prestigious university system. “Given the major increase in higher education funding provided in last year’s budget and the similar increase proposed by Gov. Newsom for next year’s budget, he believes that the proposed tuition increase is unwarranted, bad for students and inconsistent with our college affordability goals,” Newsom spokesman Jesse Melgar said in a statement. Newsom’s proposed 2020-21 budget, which he announced Jan. 10, includes more than $217 million in permanent new funding for…

Tuolumne County Men Arrested On Child Pornography Charges

TUOLUMNE COUNTY (CBS13) – Two Tuolumne County men have been arrested on charges related to child pornography, say authorities. Jonathan Rodriguez and Michael Pavao (l-r) (credit: Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Office) On Monday, Tuolumne County sheriff’s detectives arrested 36-year-old Jonathan Rodriguez of Sonora after a months-long investigation.

He was then booked into jail on charges related to possession of child pornography, according to a Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Office statement. The case is still active. Anyone with information about Rodriguez is asked to contact Detective Sergeant Riley at (209) 694-2930. Then on Tuesday, sheriff’s department detectives arrested 53-year-old Michael Pavao of Sonora on similar charges.

1 Person Detained In Connection With Stolen Classic Cadillac

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – A 1956 Cadillac stolen from a 106-year-old World War II veteran in Sacramento has been returned. The classic car was once owned by one of the most popular Hollywood actresses of all-time. “Oh, it’s been a heck of a day,” said Curly Bunfill, the owner of the car. Bunfill has seen a lot in his 106-years but he wasn’t sure he’d ever see his beloved 1956 Cadillac again. “I was scared to death it would get damaged or something,” he said. Curly Bunfill Last Friday, the car was stolen from a garage in North Sacramento, but now the World War II vet, who received three purple hearts, is thrilled to learn his classic car has been found. “I jumped from here across the street; I jumped 10 feet in the air,” he said.

He’s kept it in mint condition ever since. “People all over love that car. We would take it to the parades; it goes to…

Community, HOA Fights To Stop Man From Keeping Nutcracker Statues In Yard For 8 Months Each Year

LAKE OF THE PINES (CBS13) – A Nevada County homeowners association and community members say a man’s giant nutcrackers on display eight months of the year is too long. But the man says he’s working to make sure he can keep them up. The Lake of the Pines homeowners association is preparing to crack down on 10-feet-tall nutcracker statues on display outside Dave Campbell’s home. He says his giant nutcracker dolls are his pride and joy. “Trying to bring joy to the community,” Campbell said. The colorful soldiers, standing on red drums, make for an impressive sight. “They’re about ten feet tall, they’re made of plastics,” Campbell said. “Let’s say they’re 70-80 pounds a move.” Campbell stores the decorations under a tarp in the winter to protect them from the rain. Eight months out of the year, he has them on display outside his lakefront home. “I would put them back up for Memorial Day, and then I would decorate them for Memorial Day, and Fourth of July,” Campbell said. Campbell’s nutcracker spirit has earned approval from some neighbors, opposition from others. Mike Taylor also…

After Previous Price Hikes, Trader Joe’s ‘Two Buck Chuck’ Gets Cheaper

MONROVIA (CBS13) – One of Trader Joe’s most popular bargains is getting cheaper, at least for Californians. Charles Shaw wine, popularly known as “Two Buck Chuck,” has gotten a price cut that brings a bottle back down to $1.99. The price of Charles Shaw has increased over the years, with it fluctuating from $2.49 to $3. People in other states, due to other taxes on alcoholic beverages, have had to pay up to $3.79 for “Two Buck Chuck.” Trader Joe’s officials told the Los Angeles Business Times that the new price cut is permanent. People outside of California won’t see the new, cheaper price as distribution costs will be higher. Trader Joe’s is based in Monrovia, a city in San Gabriel Valley area of Los Angeles County. Changes to the wine’s packaging, including using less glass and cork, helped bring the price of Charles Shaw back down.

FDA: 7 Sunscreen Chemicals Enter Bloodstream After One Use, But Don’t Abandon Sun Protection

(CNN) — After a single application, a total of seven chemicals commonly found in sunscreens can be absorbed into the bloodstream at levels that exceed safety thresholds, according to studies by the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, an arm of the US Food and Drug Administration. “What is most alarming about these findings is that chemicals are absorbing into the body in significant amounts and the ingredients have not been fully tested for safety,” said David Andrews, a senior scientist for the Environmental Working Group, or EWG, a consumer organization which advocates for sunscreen safety. “If companies want to keep these ingredients in products, they need to urgently test for potential harm to children and harm from long-term use,” Andrews added. The fact that an ingredient is absorbed through the skin and into the body doesn’t mean that particular ingredient is unsafe, said Dr. Janet Woodcock, director of the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, the arm of the FDA which conducted the studies. “Rather, this finding calls for further industry testing to determine the safety and effect of systemic exposure of sunscreen ingredients,…

California Could List One Of The Most Common Pain Killers As Carcinogen

SACRAMENTO (AP) – A fight is coming to California over whether to list one of the world’s most common over-the-counter drugs as a carcinogen, echoing recent high-profile battles over things like alcohol and coffee. The drug is acetaminophen, known outside the U.S. as paracetamol and used to treat pain and fevers. It is the basis for more than 600 prescription and over-the-counter medications for adults and children, found in well-known brands like Tylenol, Excedrin, Sudafed, Robitussin and Theraflu. A state law known as Proposition 65 says California must warn people of any chemical known to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity. The state’s list has grown to about 900 chemicals, including toxic pesticides and flame retardants, and is more extensive than any in the U.S. Some critics say California regulators have been overzealous, requiring warning labels for countless products that confuse instead of inform consumers when the risk of cancer is disputed. Supporters of Prop 65 say it protects not only Californians but consumers nationwide by compelling manufacturers to make products safer. Evidence for acetaminophen’s link to cancer has been weak enough that the International Agency…
