Fiamma family member questions security as funerals for victims begin - Orlando Sentinel

Saturday, June 10, 2017

Kevin Lawson’s father, Rick Davis, still has many unanswered questions about his son’s death Monday at Fiamma.Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings said former employee John Neumann, 45, entered an unlocked door at the Forsyth Road business around 8 a.m. Monday armed with a handgun.Davis said investigators told him that Neumann killed manager Robert Snyder first because he sat next to the door.Then Neumann turned his gun on Lawson, shooting him twice in the head and six more times in the body, according to Davis.He wonders why the business didn’t have tighter security, especially after Neumann was fired in April and there was rumor that he may retaliate.“I’m not trying to pass blame,” said Davis. “There wasn’t any heightened security. They talked about the threat all through the company.”Neumann then went to a break room and shot the three other victims before turning the gun on himself, Davis said.Demings said family members have made similar statements to investigators about retaliation, but they have not been able to confirm any of it.“He knew the strengths and weaknesses of the security in t...

Ancient Chinese ritual comes to Oakland's Chapel of the Chimes - East Bay Times

Tuesday, April 18, 2017

The five, Chinese immigrants, arranged offerings of incense, apples, water, oranges, buns, mushrooms and other food, including tofu renderings of shrimp and other seafood dishes, on the altars as a type of “sutra,” Hoang Truong said.Ching Ming ceremonies traditionally coincide with spring planting, set at the 106th day after winter solstice, and at harvest time in the fall. So there will be another Ching Ming ceremony in September.“Growing up in Western society, we lose our connection. This gives us a way to connect with our culture,” said Yau Kung Moon’s Johnny Leung, visiting from Australia.“The whole family will gather together and go to the grave to clean it, bring flowers, gather together and talk,” Truong said. Given the brief time they have been in the country, with few graves to tend, such celebrations often are held at home or at temples, she said.Truong tapped a small drum and chimed a bell at intervals in the chanting. She was accompanied by the group’s leader, Quang Truong, who chimed a small gong as he led the chanting from a position at the altar’s left side.Across from him, Minh Truong kept a rhythm on the serrated scales of two wooden fish, called mokugyo or muyu. A few feet farther from the altar, at his right, Thanh Quach chanted and sounded a small set of cymbals. Opposite him, Tohoa Hong augmented her chanting with another small, brass percussion instrument.“We are here to suffer. We try to cultivate ourselves to not come back to suffering,” Hoang Truong said.She described various sutras, such as abstinence from killing, gambling, drinking, smoking and sexual misconduct. “If you make good karma, you might go to the Pure Land and become Buddha. We try, but it’s hard,” she said.“Maybe they (Chapel of the Chimes) want more and more people to know the Chinese culture. There are a lot of Chinese here. This introduced our culture to the community,” Hoang Truong said.“We serve quite a big Buddhist community,” said Chapel of the Chimes’ location manager David Madden, who helped organize the commemoration.The five conducting the altar ceremonies were lay people, not monks, Hoang Truong said.“This is a serene place, ...
