Posted: April 17, 2018 Updated: 11:42 AM KUSI Newsroom, KUSI Newsroom SPRING VALLEY (KUSI) – A search was underway today for two suspects who fired shots and clubbed a man in the head during a robbery at a Spring Valley marijuana dispensary.The takeover-style heist was occurred about 11:40 p.m. Monday at a business park at 9966 Dolores St. The gunmen entered the Spring Valley Collective and ordered customers and employees to the ground, then robbed the dispensary and fled before deputies arrived, San Diego County sheriff’s Sgt. Joe Barry said. He said 911 callers said shots were fired at some point.Nobody was injured by the gunfire, but when deputies arrived, they found a man with blunt force trauma injuries, Barry said. The sergeant did not say specifically how the man sustained the injuries, but 10News reported that at least one of the suspects struck him in the head with the blunt end of a firearm.The injured victim, whose name was not released, was taken to an undisclosed hospital for evaluation, Barry said. It was unclear whether the crime was related to armed heists of a similar nature in the Spring Valley area. Prior to Monday, the most recent similar hold-up reported in the area happened last Aug. 10 at the Bancroft Mega Wellness dispensary in the 3600 block of Bancroft Drive, less than two miles from the Spring Valley Collective.Video Playerhttp://www.kusi.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/man-injured.mp4Media error: Format(s) not supported or source(s) not foundmejs.download-file: http://www.kusi.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/man-injured.mp4?_=100:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.At that time, sheriff’s Sgt. Kotaro Murashige of the Rancho San Diego substation described a similar robbery to the one on Monday, in which two armed men forced their way into the illegal dispensary, disarmed a security guard, forced everyone to the ground and made off with marijuana products.Murashige said in August that it was a familiar pattern from several previous robberies in the Spring Valley area.“In each case, armed guards were not a deterrent, the suspects were all armed (and) dispensary staff members failed to call for help even after people were physically assaulted,” the sergeant said. “In some cases the staff members refused to allow law enforcement to enter, causing a stand-off situation that stretched the department’s resources in helping victims.”The Dolores Street dispensary robbed Monday was familiar to Spring Valley deputies. On Feb. 8, sheriff’s detectives and members of the San Diego Crime Suppression Team raided the illegal business and confiscated marijuana, edibles, cash and a loaded BB pistol, according to Sgt. Matt Cook.Despite the use of marijuana becoming legal statewide at the beginning of this year, businesses that sell marijuana are still banned from operating throughout much of the county, including all unincorporated areas of the county. Legitimate marijuana businesses are allowed to operate in the city of San Diego and some other cities, but must be licensed.Video Playerhttp://www.kusi.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/dispensary-spring-valley-4.17.mp4Media error: Format(s) not supported or source(s) not foundmejs.download-file: http://www.kusi.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/dispensary-spring-valley-4.17.mp4?_=200:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.

Israeli moon mission makes orbit ahead of Sea of Serenity landing SpaceX sends Israel’s historic moon mission on its way Originally published April 11, 12:32 p.m. PT.Update, 6:40 p.m. PT: Adds traditional information regarding X Prize and Beresheet’s final image. The failed mission will be remembered as bittersweet.”Well, we didn’t make it, but we definitely tried, and the achievement of getting where we got is really tremendous,” said Morris Khan, an Israeli entrepreneur who provided a large portion of the funding for Beresheet, as he addressed the observers near the control room. “We can be proud.”NASA commended the mission in a tweet: “We congratulate SpaceIL, Israel Aerospace Industries and the state of Israel on the accomplishment of sending the first privately funded mission into lunar orbit.” Buzz Aldrin, Apollo 11 pilot, also had kind words. “Never lose hope. Your hard work, teamwork, and innovation is inspiring to all,” he tweeted. While @NASA regrets the end of the @TeamSpaceIL mission without a successful lunar landing, we congratulate SpaceIL, Israel Aerospace Industries and the state of Israel on the accomplishment of sending the first privately funded mission into lunar orbit. https://t.co/XwHpN5M8Pu pic.twitter.com/cfMtP4srDr— Jim Bridenstine (@JimBridenstine) April 11, 2019 4:13 Beresheet launched on Feb. 21 on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket and overcame a brief technical glitch along the way. The lander was designed to take pictures of its surroundings and measure the moon’s magnetic field. It was even able to snap one final, breathtaking image as it approached the lunar surface and beam it back to Earth.SpaceIL and Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) had placed a time capsule in the lander filled with digital files covering Israel’s history and heritage. That time capsule was likely lost along with the spacecraft. The dream didn’t quite come to fruition, but Beresheet’s journey to lunar orbit was still an important moment in space history that made the moon feel more in reach for the world. Although SpaceIL didn’t quite make the deadline, the X Prize foundation was inspired by its attempt, creating a new prize dubbed the Moonshot Award. Originally, the foundation stated “for their achievement upon landing on the moon”, X Prize would hand SpaceIL the first Moonshot Award — and $1 million.Of course, Beresheet did not make it to the surface in one piece but it did still land — albeit with a little more force than hoped. As a result, the foundation said it would still be providing SpaceIL with the cash. Beresheet snapped this partial selfie during its approach to the moon. SpaceIL/IAI Israel’s Beresheet would have been the most unlikely lunar lander in history, but the spacecraft didn’t survive its reach for the moon’s surface Thursday.SpaceIL’s live broadcast followed the tense maneuvers needed to get the lunar lander down to the Sea of Serenity on the near side of the moon. The Beresheet team members worked in the control room as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu watched from a spectator area.The landing process suffered some glitches when the main engine cut out and mission control lost communication. The disappointed team reacted calmly to the failure. Super blood wolf moon lunar eclipse dazzles in striking photos 2 They may not have had a successful landing this time, but @TeamSpaceIL has still made history. They will be the recipients of our first ever $1M Moonshot Award, in honor of their achievements and their milestone as the first privately-funded entity to orbit the Moon. 🌒 #moonshot pic.twitter.com/ErUfjqvvxY— XPRIZE (@xprize) April 11, 2019 Beresheet aims for the moon Share your voice This was a mission of firsts. Beresheet was to be Israel’s first moon lander, which would have put the country in an exclusive club that includes the US, Soviet Union and China. In addition, nonprofit SpaceIL would have been the first private, nongovernment group to set a lander on the moon’s surface.SpaceIL was originally conceived to compete in Google’s Lunar X Prize which, in 2007, threw down a challenge to private companies to build a spacecraft that could land on the moon. The original deadline to claim the $30 million in prize money was originally 2014, but it was extended out until 2018 before an announcement that the prize would go unclaimed.

A two-member election expert mission representing the European Union (EU) will arrive in Dhaka on Tuesday to monitor the situations before and after the national election scheduled to be held on 30 December.”Yes, they’re arriving. They’ll stay until 15 January,” a senior official at the foreign ministry told UNB on Monday.The election expert mission comprising David Noel Ward and Eirini- Maria Gounari might stay for longer period, if necessary, depending on the evolving situation.”I can’t tell you their day-to-day programmes. But I can tell you they’ll have wider discussions with political leaders on election issues. They’ll also visit places outside Dhaka,” said another official.The two election experts of the EU will meet key interlocutors, including chief election commissioner KM Nurul Huda, media, candidates and voters.Such an expert team usually submits a report to the EU headquarters in Brussels on its observation.Meanwhile, a visiting European parliamentary delegation on Sunday hoped that the next national election in Bangladesh will be held in a free and fair manner.”I’m confident that the coming election will be free and fair,” said Rupert Matthews, conservative member of the European Parliament sharing his thoughts based on the impression he got after talking to political leaders of Bangladesh.The delegation of the European Parliament also met prime minister Sheikh Hasina on Saturday.While interacting with media at a city hotel, he said the European Parliament believes that Bangladesh is well-prepared to handle the election on its own.Matthews said the European Union parliament believes that Bangladesh is capable to follow its own rules to conduct a free and fair election.Therefore, he added, they do not need to send observers.He said the delegation had talks with a wide range of people of Bangladesh, including government officials and politicians and common people.Though it will not send any observer team because of a lengthy preparatory process, the European Union (EU) will closely monitor the next national election in Bangladesh, said a diplomatic source.The EU will be keeping eyes on the developments in the coming weeks, the source said, adding that not sending an observer team does not mean that they are not going to follow the elections.The EU thinks sending a credible observer mission is a very big operation as it involves a good number of observers and needs a long preparation.It, however, expects free, fair, credible and transparent elections in Bangladesh.”We’re looking forward to free, fair, credible and transparent elections in this country,” said managing director for Asia and the Pacific at European External Action Service Gunnar Wiegand during his Bangladesh visit in July last.
An assistant sub-inspector of police was closed on Friday for physically torturing a woman at Dhunat police station over dues.The action was taken against Shahnur Rahman after the allegation was found to be true in primary investigation, said officer-in-charge of the police station Ismail Hossain.The victim, Kohinoor Khatun, 42, of Nightpara Boubazar in the district town, is now undergoing treatment at Dhunat Upazila Health Complex.Kohinoor said she used to run a food shop in front of the Judge’s Court in the town and ASI Shahanur used to take food from it. She also claimed that he took Tk 60,000 from her as loan.When she asked for money, the official proposed that she entered an illicit relation with her, she said, adding that she later served a legal notice on him.The police officer called the victim to Dhunat police station on Friday morning in the name of returning her money. At one stage, they locked into an altercation and he beat her mercilessly and drove her out of the police station.Contacted, Shahanur claimed that Kohinoor had long been demanding money to him threatening to implicate him in false cases. “To avoid harassment, I had given her Tk 60,000 through a settlement. Even after that, she came to the police station again and threatened to file a case against me. Being angered, I slapped her.”The OC said the superintendent of police was informed of the matter and later an additional superintendent of police found the allegation to be true after primary investigation and ordered action against the ASI.Departmental action will be taken against him after further investigation, he said.

The City of Houston was contracting directly with contractors to do the repairs, but there are some other programs where the homeowners themselves received the dollars,” Parker said.Those other programs were managed by the federal government.Parker’s immediate predecessor, Bill White, agrees with her assessment.“We had abundant evidence that some people chose to cash their checks and not have their homes repaired,” he said.Parker also says many people lacked homeowners insurance.In other cases, back taxes, confusion about ownership of the homes and other factors, such as simply not completing the paperwork for assistance, slowed down the process and eventually put it to a halt.Other Houstonians didn’t get timely repairs because their homes didn’t qualify for federal assistance.For example, they exceeded the cap set by the government on the property’s damage.Parker says that, at the time, if the damage to the property was higher than $25,000, the homeowner wasn’t eligible for assistance because the damage exceeded the threshold set by the federal government.However, some housing experts think the genesis of the problem was in fact years in the making.John Henneberger is co-director of the Texas Low Income Housing Information Service and thinks the blue tarps represent “a failure to plan for the rebuilding following a disaster.”“It had to do with long-term structural and administrative problems within the city’s housing department,” adds Henneberger who, nonetheless, notes those problems predated the White and Parker administrations.Tom McCasland, the current director of the city’s Housing and Community Development Department, says right after the hurricane the city was focused on a particular type of housing.“We’ve done a lot of good work using the Ike funds, some of it has gone into multi-family, replacement units,” McCasland said. “Some of it has gone into replacing entire homes and all of that is excellent work that needs to be done, but one of the things that this mayor wants to support is single-family homeownership.”Sylvester Turner addressed the blue tarp situation last year, when he was running for mayor.He said the city has a duty to repair the roofs and it has identified more than 500 homes with blue tarps.Turner announced the roof repair program at the beginning of September.He said the initiative is directly related to a concept he campaigned on in 2015 called complete communities, which, among other things, means fixing damaged roofs.And the mayor emphasizes he is not implementing the program because of a major event that is now just around the corner.“Has nothing to do with the Super Bowl,” Turner assured at a press conference held at Houston City Hall several days after announcing the launch of the program and added “it has everything to do about quality of life and providing people with a quality of life.”According to the Housing and Community Development Department, as of December 15th, the city had approved repairs for 168 homes.Marissa CummingsAfter eight years of not having a solid roof, this is how Huff’s home looks now.
