Police: US soccer referee punched by player dies
Fox News - almost 4 years
Ricardo Portillo's daughters had begged him to stop refereeing in a Hispanic soccer league because of the growing risk of violence from angry players. Now they're faced with planning his funeral after he succumbed to injuries late Saturday that had put him in a coma for a week since a 17-year-old goalie punched him in the head. Authorities say the teen punched Portillo after the youth was called for a foul and issued a yellow card. "The suspect was close to Portillo and punched him once in the face as a result of the call," Unified police spokesman Justin Hoyal in a press release. The suspect has been booked into juvenile detention on suspicion of aggravated assault. Hoyal said authorities will consider additional charges since the 46-year-old Salt Lake City man has died. Hoyal said an autopsy is planned. No cause of death was released. Portillo suffered swelling in his brain and had been listed i ...

LETTER: Campbell Resident Says Local Editor is an 'Inspiration'
Campbell Patch - over 4 years
It's an honor to have a Hispanic person who writes our Campbell Patch News. Campbell is our city. My business, home, kids' school and husband's job are all here in Campbell. I read your background story to my kids as an inspiration. I believe we don't have enough Hispanic role models for our kids. I try to instill in my kids what every other parents does: "You can be what ever you want to be when you grow up." I strongly believe that if you hang around successful people you become successful. If you ever have time, I would love to stop by and visit you with my kids at your job location. Of course if you don't mind. Keep up the good work. Thanks for representing us! Maria Vasquez

    Age 35
    His new lead single, "One Shot" (a different song than the one that appeared on his debut) was released to radio in April 2013.
    More Details Hide Details In 2007, Magdaleno Olmos, an employee of Fremantle Media which produces American Idol, filed a lawsuit against Fremantle Media, Fox Entertainment, and Mario Vazquez claiming wrongful termination. The lawsuit alleged that Vazquez sexually harassed Olmos by performing a lewd act in front of him and offered sexual favors. Olmos claimed that he tried to report the incident to a superior but was threatened with dismissal, and he was "terminated" a few months after the incident. Olmos' lawyer also suggested that Idol producers had forced Vasquez out over the complaint, and claimed that Nigel Lythgoe, the show producer, had said to Olmos, "we know that this happened and we are going to let Mario Vazquez go, and you’re going to stay." Vazquez was reported to be "very upset, almost distraught" over the claim and that he didn't even remember Magdaleno Olmos. He had previously denied that he is gay and that he quit the show for "artistic reasons". The judge later ruled that Olmos had signed an agreement to "arbitrate all disputes and not file a lawsuit," and sent the case to arbitration and put a hold on the lawsuit.

  • 2005
    Age 27
    In August 2005, Vazquez signed with J Records/Arista Records and worked on an album executive produced by Clive Davis.
    More Details Hide Details Vazquez's manager was Arnold Stiefel, who also managed Rod Stewart. He worked with Ne-Yo, Akon, Soulshock and Karlin, Lester Mendez, Scott Storch, and Luny Tunes. Some of these artists' songs with Vasquez did not make the final cut on his album.
    In 2005, he was reunited with his estranged father, Mario Rivera, who discovered that his son was on American Idol while channel surfing.
    More Details Hide Details After making it into the final round of twelve contestants on the hit reality show American Idol, Vazquez suddenly dropped out of the competition citing "personal family thing" a few days before the finals started. When the press contacted his mother regarding his decision, she was unaware why he had left the show. There was much speculation about his decision; Vazquez appeared the next morning on "Good Day New York" on WNYW FOX5, and quashed rumors of a feud with "American Idol" producers or any of his competitors. "American Idol was only positive. They were only wonderful to me, from the beginning through the middle, to the end," he told the show. "It had nothing to do with the contract or anything signed with J Records." J Records is the same company that manages Idol winners Ruben Studdard and Fantasia Barrino. Vazquez later said that he wanted more artistic control and creating his own sound, and he felt that he would be more restricted staying on the show. He felt that since he was now known worldwide as a semi-finalist, he could end the competition and go solo. He believed that his musical success would not make a difference whether he quit as a semi-finalist or participated in the finals round. Vazquez was replaced on the show by Nikko Smith, who had previously been voted out.
    He competed on American Idol's fourth season, which aired on the FOX network in early 2005.
    More Details Hide Details Raised by his single mother, Ada, in the Bronx, Vazquez is an alumnus of Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts. He was also involved in the CityKids Repertory Company in New York City, which enabled him to travel the country and perform in front of the President and at major charitable functions and shelters.
