Mourners pay respects to Tashii Brown, who died in police custody - Las Vegas Review-Journal

Day card.A program for Saturday’s service also included his mother’s remembrance of Brown’s life.“He touched the hearts of anyone that would give him five minutes of their time,” she wrote.Call for reform Brown’s death and the use of the chokehold have prompted community outrage, a Strip demonstration and an NAACP petition banning the use of neck restraints by the Metropolitan Police Department. Lopera has been placed on paid administrative leave while Brown’s death is investigated, according to Metro Undersheriff Kevin McMahill.Led by NAACP Las Vegas president Roxann McCoy, the NAACP and the American Civil Liberties Union Las Vegas chapters have come together in a joint effort to call for reform of the department.An internet petition created by McCoy calls on Metro to join Henderson and North Las Vegas in banning the use of neck restraints by officers. As of Saturday, the petition had racked up 291 of the needed 500 signatures.The petition also demands complete transparency from the department during its investigation.“The one thing that brings about unrest is no information or a lack of information and lack of knowledge,” McCoy said. “We’re asking officials to help us understand this because if there are things about the investigation process that I don’t know, that means an average person wouldn’t know.”Days after Brown’s in-custody death, McMahill confirmed that the chokehold used by Lopera is not sanctioned or approved.“When you have adrenaline flowing like that, I don’t know how you ascertain the proper technique to perform the authorized form of the chokehold,” McCoy said Saturday evening. “At the end of the day, you’re still choking someone and you have the potential to kill.”Meanwhile, the Brown family has stayed out of the media spotlight since his death.

Obituary: Sheldon L. Slagel - Twin Falls Times-News

Saturday, April 08, 2017

At a young age while living with his parents in South Dakota, he would get up on a Sunday morning, dress himself, and walk to a nearby Reformed church. Several years later after attending Bible College, he was ordained as a licensed minister with the Assemblies of God and became a pastor of his first church in Long Pine, Nebraska. His ministry then took him to pastor churches in Rupert, Idaho; Buhl, Idaho; Jerome, Idaho; Kamiah, Idaho and Elk Grove, California. He, along with Del Storey, co-founded and pastored the inter-denominational church of Christian Center in Twin Falls, Idaho. He also traveled extensively throughout the United States, Mexico, Canada, New Zealand and Australia ministering at Christian retreats, conferences and missions.His other passions in life included playing and watching golf, flying his airplane, attending the Junior High and High school sports events of his children and grandchildren, and cheering for the Boise State University’s football team. His greatest enjoyment was witnessing the successes of his family and church members and was always there to encourage us if we fell short. With him there was no such thing as a stranger. In his eyes, everyone around him provided an opportunity to engage in conversation, tell jokes, laugh and smile. His sense of humor, devotion to family, and endless love for Jesus were deeply ingrained and evident to the very end.

Giving the grieving a break: Online disclosure of funeral costs in South Bay helps avoid gouging - The Daily Breeze

Monday, March 27, 2017

They call this a ‘traditional’ funeral while failing to disclose that less expensive burial and cremation options are available.”In 2013, California enacted partial transparency reform, requiring funeral businesses to either post their entire general price list on their websites or to list 16 service items with a note that prices are available “on request.”California is the only state to mandate any online requirement, Slocum said. So if a relative dies out of state, Californians could be hard-pressed to comparison shop.The Funeral Consumers Alliance has affiliates in 46 states. In November 2015, the Southern California chapter mapped funeral homes in Los Angeles County, including the South Bay, comparing prices for direct cremation, immediate burial and a full funeral service. The survey found vast disparities.Transparency among independentsKirk believes consumers should be encouraged to check the websites of funeral homes.Often, they tend to go with a mortuary that is close to home, he said,but that’s changing, partly because of the internet.“People certainly today do a lot more comparison shopping than they used to and it’s probably good that they do,” Kirk said.He acknowledged that, like any other industry, varying prices for the same services can be attributable to quality.“There might be a valid reason for there to be a dramatic difference for price in companies,” Kirk said. “Some might provide significantly higher service levels than others.”White & Day Mortuaries, for example, offers the use of reception facilities for no additional charge, he said.For Tim Lambert, manager of A.M. Gamby Mortuary in Lomita, listing prices online isn’t just a matter of transparency, but convenience.“It’s easier, just showing the people what it is,” Lambert said. “If they’re calling you up, you can say it’s online, print yourself a copy.”Locally owned independents are most likely to post prices, according to the consumer groups’ report, which offered data on 138 businesses in nine regions nationwide, including Orange County, building on its 2015 survey.Locally, just four of 15 mortuaries in the South Bay and Harbor Area do not have general price lists on their websites. Green Hills Mortuary in Rancho Palos Verdes, Exquisite Family Mortuary in Inglewood, Funeraria Del Angel in Wilmington and Halverson, Stone & Myers Mortuary in Torrance each list their services, but advise prospective customers to call and request a general price list.Green Hills’ list of services warns consumers that advertised prices at other funeral homes might be dishonest.“Many providers advertise low prices then add hidden fees. Our professional funeral directors will clearly let you know what the total price will be for our excellent services and merchandise,” the mortuary states.Funeraria Del Angel and Halverson, Stone & Myers are part of a chain, Service Corp. International, which mostly operates under the brand “Dignity Memorial,” and has a uniform policy not to post prices.Houston-based SCI, with $3?billion in revenue last year, owns 470 cemeteries and 1,500 funeral homes nationwide, including 70 in Southern California. It has acquired rival chains and independents at a rapid pace.SCI charges far more than most independent funeral homes for cremations and burials, according to the consumer groups’ report, which compared prices across several categories.Among the homes surveyed, Dignity Memorial outlets charged a median price of $2,700 for a simple cremation, 72 percent more than the independents.And Dignity Memorial homes charged a median of $2,155 for a simple burial, 50 percent more than the independent businesses. (A simple or “immediate” burial only includes paperwork, placing the body in a casket and delivering it to a cemetery. It does not cover the cost of casket, embalming, or the plot.)“Although media reports on SCI have often described the company as the ‘Wal-Mart’ of funeral service, the comparison does not hold,” the report asser...

Alex Tizon, former Seattle Times reporter who won Pulitzer Prize, dies at 57 - The Seattle Times

Americans. The series, which documented how billions of dollars in taxpayer funds were helping wealthy people across the country live in mansions while tribes were housed in decrepit shacks, inspired reforms to the program.Friends, colleagues and family members said Mr. Tizon was known as a deep listener who preferred to dive headfirst into complicated, long-form stories that are becoming rarer in today’s fast-paced media cycle. An introvert who spent hours alone brooding over deep issues like the meaning of his life, he would often take on seemingly simple stories and come back with complicated tales about humanity.Most Read StoriesUnlimited Digital Access. $1 for 4 weeks.“He was very curious about other people — and learning about other people helped him learn about himself,” said his wife, Melissa Tizon. “That’s what journalism did for him. His whole life quest was about trying to understand who he was, as an immigrant growing up in a largely white community.”Born in the Philippines, Mr. Tizon immigrated to Seattle with his family when he was 5 years old and bounced around the country before he settled back here.He spent 17 years at The Seattle Times before becoming the Seattle bureau chief for the Los Angeles Times from 2003 to 2008. He also contributed to publications like Newsweek and programs such as “60 Minutes.”He then spent two years in Manila, where he helped track efforts by the government to eliminate poverty in poor communities, and taught workshops in far-flung locales like Romania. And he wrote a memoir, “Big Little Man: In Search of My Asian Self,” about the challenges of being an Asian-American man in the United States.He turned to teaching in 2011, but his passion for writing still burned.A year ago, he revived a story he began working on at the Los Angeles Times a decade befor...
