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. In December, the Internet Crimes Against Children task force tipped off detectives about Rodriguez’s alleged criminal activity. Detectives investigated the claims and subsequently arrested Rodriguez. 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. Just as in Rodriguez’s case, ICAC provided detectives with information leading to Pavao’s arrest. He was booked into jail on charges of sexual exploitation of a minor and possession of child pornography.

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. Bunfill was given the Bermuda Blue Eldorado from its previous owner, Hollywood starlet Rita Hayworth, whom he knew from his days working as a stuntman. 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…

Travel Ban Expansion Could Include Immigration Restrictions on 7 Additional Countries, Sources Say

The Trump administration drafted plans to renew and expand its travel ban list to include immigration restrictions on seven additional countries, according to sources familiar with the process. Unlike the travel restrictions currently in place, the new rules could limit certain immigrant visas from the additional countries, said a US government official — essentially creating a partial immigration ban. Not all of the restrictions are uniform, said the official, adding that the proposal limits some immigrant visas from one country and other visas from another. The plans, which are still under review, are based on interagency input from the departments of Homeland Security and State, as well as the White House, according to the official. President Donald Trump will make the final decision on changes to the ban. In an interview with the Wall Street Journal Tuesday, Trump confirmed that he is planning to add additional nations to the travel ban, but wouldn’t reveal which countries would be added to the updated version. The anniversary of the first travel ban — a Jan. 27, 2017 executive order signed by Trump that suspended refugee resettlement and barred nationals from seven majority-Muslim countries…

Boeing Doesn’t Expect Grounded 737 Max Jets to Be Cleared Until Summer

Boeing said Tuesday that it doesn’t expect federal regulators to approve its changes to the grounded 737 Max until this summer, several months longer than the company was saying just a few weeks ago. That timetable — the latest of several delays in the plane’s approval process — will create more headaches for airlines by pushing the Max’s return further into the peak summer travel season. Even after federal officials approve changes Boeing is making to the plane, airlines will need more time to train pilots. Boeing shares fell more than 5% by Tuesday afternoon. The company said regulators will decide when the Max flies again but that it periodically gives airlines and suppliers its best estimate of when that will happen. “This updated estimate is informed by our experience to date with the certification process,” Boeing said in a statement. “It is subject to our ongoing attempts to address known schedule risks and further developments that may arise in connection with the certification process. It also accounts for the rigorous scrutiny that regulatory authorities are rightly applying at every step of their review” of…

L.A. Is Repealing Law That Required Companies Seeking City Contracts to Reveal NRA Ties

Los Angeles is rolling back a law that required companies seeking city contracts to reveal any ties with the National Rifle Assn., weeks after a federal judge blocked the city from enforcing those rules. The City Council voted 12-0 without discussion Tuesday to repeal the ordinance, which was passed less than a year ago at Los Angeles City Hall. Under the law, companies that were vying for city contracts had to disclose contracts or sponsorships between them or their subsidiaries and the NRA, although the ordinance included some exemptions. The L.A. ordinance was championed by Councilman Mitch O’Farrell, who said last year that it “provides transparency and allows the taxpayer to know how and where their monies are being spent.” His spokesman Tony Arranaga later added that “the disclosure has no bearing on who does or does not receive a contract with the city.” The councilman, whose district includes parts of Hollywood, Silver Lake and Echo Park, said the NRA has “been a roadblock to gun safety reform at every level of government now for several decades.” Read the full story on LATimes.com.

Nipsey Hussle’s Legacy to Take Center Stage at Grammy Awards

Even before Nipsey Hussle laid down his first verse on “Higher,” DJ Khaled predicted he had a Grammy-nominated hit on his hands. At Khaled’s home in Miami, the hip-hop stars had deep and personal conversations about topics outside of music — family life, street life, entrepreneurship, future goals and more — before recording the song. Hussle even told Khaled how his grandmother had 12 miscarriages before giving birth to his mother. “Walking to the studio I was telling Nipsey, ‘Man, that stuff you were talking about, you should put that in a song one day.’ I was telling him, ‘When I hear songs from Jay-Z, Biggie, Pac and Nas, when they tell their stories about their life, not only do you believe it, you feel it,’” Khaled said. “It’s like street gospel.” Moments later, Hussle did re-tell those stories in a song — that song — one of the last he recorded before his tragic death on March 31, 2019. Hussle was shot to death outside his Marathon clothing store in the South Los Angeles neighborhood where he is from; Eric Holder Jr. was charged with the…

LA City Council Retreats From Law Requiring Potential Contractors To Disclose NRA Ties

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – Los Angeles won’t be able to pull the trigger on a law passed nearly a year ago that would have required companies bidding for city contracts to reveal any links with the National Rifle Association. The City Council voted 12-0 Tuesday to repeal the ordinance, which was passed in Feb. 2019 requiring the disclosure of contracts or sponsorships with the NRA, according to the Los Angeles Times. The ordinance did not ban NRA-connected companies from doing business with the city. The NRA originally sued the city in April, alleging the disclosure requirement violates the First Amendment and contends the ordinance was passed with the intent to silence the “NRA’s voice, as well as the voices of all those who dare oppose the city’s broad gun-control agenda.” Last month, a federal judge blocked the city from enforcing the ordinance. The city’s decision to repeal follows similar action by San Francisco in September, when Mayor London Breed moved to negate a City Council-backed resolution that called for an investigation of ties between San Francisco contractors and vendors and the NRA. The resolution also…

Woman’s Car Fills With Snow After Leaving Window Open In Blizzard

ST. JOHN’S, Newfoundland (CBS Local) — A woman digging out of record-breaking snowfall in Newfoundland, Canada, woke up to a surprise Saturday morning when she went out to her car. With a 30-inches of new snow on the ground in St. John’s, Lola Parsons said she expected to find her car completely covered in snow. But it wasn’t. That’s because she forgot to roll her window up, and several inches of snow had piled inside on her front seats. “It was so chaotic she forgot to put it back up” on Friday as she was pulling into her driveway, Parsons’ son, Kenny Sharpe, told CNN. guys, MOMleft her WINDOW DOWN —in the BLIZZARD pic.twitter.com/9PJYh1g72p — Kenny SC Sharpe (@kscSharpe) January 18, 2020 But Sharpe said his mother took it in stride, as is apparent by the laughter in a video shared on Twitter. “Can’t even get in the car, there’s so much snow in the car,” Parsons says as she attempts to sit in the driver’s seat. Once she settles in behind the wheel, she jokingly asks, “So, are you ready to go?”

Accidental Discovery Raises Prospect Of ‘One-Size-Fits-All’ Cancer Treatment

CARDIFF, Wales (CBS Local) — Researchers have discovered a new cell in our immune system that they say could one day be used to create a “one size fits all” treatment for cancer. Scientists at Cardiff University in Wales say the T-cell and its receptor they discovered that can find and kill a wide range of cancerous cells in the lab including lung, skin, blood, colon, breast, bone, prostate, ovarian, kidney and cervical cancer cells. The Cardiff team said they were analyzing blood samples for immune cells that may fight bugs when they made the discovery. The findings, published Monday in Nature Immunology, have not been tested on humans, but researchers say they have “enormous potential.” A new type of immune cell which kills most cancers has been discovered by #CardiffUni scientists, offering fresh hope of universal treatment for all patients.

‘When It First Started, It Was Not Loved By The Critics’: Candace Cameron Bure On ‘Full House’ & ‘Grow, Candace, Grow’

(CBS Local)– Candace Cameron Bure has been in the spotlight since she got the part of D.J. Tanner on “Full House” as a 10-year-old. Bure has done a lot since then, but one of the things she enjoys the most is writing books for kids. The actor has a new children’s book called “Grow, Candace, Grow about a girl that convinces her teacher to allow the class to plant a garden. While Bure is a New York Times Bestseller, she always wanted to tap into this genre of books. “The children’s books have always been a dream of mine,” said Bure in an interview with CBS Local’s DJ Sixsmith. “This is the second in the series. I’ve written several books, but there’s nothing I’m more passionate about than the children’s books. It was my favorite thing to do with my kids when they were young. They’re all old and out of the house now. I absolutely love reading to children. This was fun, little Candace is more like my daughter Natasha. She has a spunky personality and walks to the beat of her own drum.” FULL…
