LESLIE ALLEN BELLRICHARD, PFC USA - "And God said who shall we send, I answered I am here, send me."
Hawaii Reporter - over 2 years
  PFC Leslie Allen Bellrichard BY DUANE A VACHON, PH.D.  Bellrichard was born on December 4 1941 at Janesville Wisconsin.  When he was in his early teens his family moved to San Jose California. San Jose was to become his hometown and it was from there (Oakland) he joined the Army. Whilst I did not know Bellrichard, I was with MACV serving in Pleiku Province, South Vietnam on May 20 1967 and  involved in the same conflict in which he bravely gave his life.  Ironically our paths have crossed again; I live between two homes, one in Honolulu, and the other in San Jose. San Jose lost not only Bellrichard but another 141 of its sons to the Vietnam War.     While many communities have chosen to honor Medal of Honor recipients, Rock County where his birth city is has voted not to.

Oakland Cops On Trial For Killing Unarmed Barber
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Two Oakland police officers were in court this week for a federal civil wrongful death suit stemming from a highly controversial 2010 incident when the pair shot and killed an unarmed man who was in the process of fleeing. In November, 2010, 37-year old East Oakland barber shop owner Derrick Jones was shot dead by Oakland Police Department officers Omar Daza-Quiroz and Eriberto Perez-Angeles who responded to a domestic disturbance call at Jones' barbershop from a woman who claimed Jones had tried to strangle her. When Daza-Quiroz and Perez-Angeles attempted to question Jones, he fled on foot and the officers fired six rounds, believing Jones was in the process of pulling a gun. A search of scene failed to turn up any firearms. Authorities did find a digital scale and a small amount of marijuana. At the time of the his death, Jones was on probation for a gun offense. Jones' widow, Lanell Jones, is seeking unspecified damages from the city of Oakland, as well as both ...

Are Ladybugs Going Extinct?
Huffington Post - over 4 years
The joy of having a little red ladybug land on your arm may now be a thing of the past. Native species of the insect have become so rare that scientists across the country worry it will become extinct. That's where the Lost Ladybug Project steps in. (SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO) Begun by Cornell University entomologist John Losey twelve years ago, the Lost Ladybug Project hopes to document the backyard bug in different locations to determine why their populations are declining. The project has enlisted volunteers all over the country, and nature enthusiasts in the Bay Area are eager to participate. Seven-year-old Maddox Rochman-Romdalvik, dubbed a "citizen scientist" by researchers, searches for ladybugs in his backyard on a regular basis. “We go out and wherever we are, we’re looking for ladybugs,” his mother, Sue Rochman, told CBS News. Over the past 20 years, several species of native ladybugs, once very common across the United States, have become extremely rar ...
