Penn National Gaming Names Michael Galle General Manager of Hollywood Gaming at Mahoning Valley Race Track
There was no indication they knew each other, said police. Laguerre has not been charged in the shooting. At his family home in Miami Gardens, his mother declined to speak on the record. She said her son would not talk about the incident. To Cherry’s family and friends, the anguish of his death is compounded by its oddity. “I never met someone with a brighter aura than Jandei,” said co-worker Kaylee Martinez, 20. “Sweet, witty, always making people laugh. He deserves to be known for who he was, not just a naked man running around Hollywood.” For Auta Cherry, the killing of her son “was foolish and senseless and did not have to happen. This story has so many twists. But my son is dead, and someone has to be held accountable.” Auta Cherry said an account of how her son came to be without his clothes, wallet or a cellphone was provided by a friend of her son’s who worked with him at the Quarterdeck, on the Dania Beach Pier. In a phone call last week, Cherry said that friend told her that he and Jandei ended up at the beach after getting off work late Saturday. They argued and Jandei punched him in the face, the friend told her. The friend then took off with Jandei’s clothes and skateboard, he told her. Contacted by phone Monday, that friend declined comment.
As Newsmax reports , the Obama administration is turning its focus on prime time television series, using the influential platform and the power of celebrity to spread the word about its healthcare initiative. With the White Houses blessing, the University of Southern Californias Annenberg Norman Lear Center, which has something called a Hollywood, Health & Society program, has accepted a $500,000 grant from the left-wing California Endowment to help TV producers condition the masses into supporting Obamas Soviet-style health care program. USC will aim to keep producers, writers, and directors up to speed so they can incorporate the latest information into their storylines. It will also generate public service announcements to match the TV shows storylines. Our experience has shown that the public gets just as much, if not more, information about current events and important issues from their favorite television shows and characters as they do from the news media and online resources, said Martin Kaplan, head of the USC program. The grant will allow us to ensure that industry practitioners have up-to-date, relevant facts on health care reform to integrate into their storylines and projects. The program, which also aids in the spread of Al Gores anthropogenic global warming hysteria, boasts that its storytelling resources have contributed to more than 550 Hollywood, Health & Society-assisted storylines over the span of three years. It has placed left-wing political propaganda in a plethora of popular broadcast and cable TV shows including All My Children, Boardwalk Empire, Boston Legal, Breaking Bad, CSI, Desperate Housewives, Dexter, Gilmore Girls, Greys Anatomy, Judging Amy, Law & Order, Mad Men, Malcolm in the Middle, NCIS, 24, West Wing, The Wire, and even the alleged CBS News program 60 Minutes. The Hollywood, Health & Society programs advisory board includes a galaxy of big-name players in the entertainment industry. Among them are: Michelle Alban, a vice president at Telemundo; Kelly Delap, a vice president at Disney ABC Networks Group; David Foster, writer and executive producer of House on Fox; Vince Gilligan, writer and executive producer of Breaking Bad on AMC; Christopher Keyser, president of Writers Guild of America-West; actress Judith Light, best known for her role on Whos The Boss?; Thom Mount, CEO of Reliant Pictures Corp.; actress and left-wing activist Gloria Reuben of ER fame; and Michael Roberts, executive vice president for current programming at The CW. With its anti-social left-wing mission, the misnamed Hollywood, Health & Society program can inflict a lot of damage to American culture and the body politic. The Los Angeles-based California Endowment that is funding the HH&S program has been working to undermine American freedoms for years. The wealthy charitable organization had a little under $3.3 billion in net assets as of March 31, 2012, according to its most recent publicly available tax return (Form 990-PF). The philanthropy is closely associated with political extremism. Going back to 1999, the philanthropy has given $50.4 million (23 grants) to the notorious neo-Marxist Tides Foundation in San Francisco and an astounding $87 million (187 grants) to its sister organization, the Tides Center, which incubates new leftist groups. The Tides network, whose then-leader Drummond Pike participated in the attempted cover-up of a million-dollar embezzlement at ACORN, has close ties to the preeminent funder of the Left, radical anti-American billionaire George Soros. Since 2001, the California Endowment has also given $4.9 million (29 grants) to Families USA Foundation, a pro-Obamacare activist group. Obamas labor secretary, Sharia law supporter and immigration amnesty champion Thomas Perez, was a paid consultant to the California Endowment and the George Soros-funded Public Health Institute. Soros, along with Hugo Chavez, the late communist leader of Venezuela, funded Casa de Maryland, an open-borders group on whose board Perez served.
