Shred and E-Waste Day in the Lowe's Parking Lot on Saturday, April 28. Hundreds of residents were in a "spring cleaning" type of mood and took full advantage of the free community service event. Three Shred-Away trucks were filled to capacity and over 3 tons of E-Waste was dropped in a roll-off container. KGCB hosts shred and e-waste events twice a year. The events would not be possible without a total team effort. Pictured KGCB Board members and students from Northside Middle School's AVID program and Greenwood Christian School volunteered their time for over three hours to get the job done. KGCB's mission is to engage individuals, neighborhoods, and businesses in creating a beautiful, clean and healthy environment. For more information or to volunteer at our events, please contact Christen Davis at firstname.lastname@example.org.Submitted by Johnathan Graves... (Index-Journal)
Apparently they were thrown out when new tenants were moving into the suspects' former apartment.Hagen said he was surprised by the volume and types of material he found, but also "disappointed." He added, "Most of the stuff from 2017 and 2016 wasn't there. Police apparently took everything from the recent years."Although Chief Todd said he is confident Hagen does not possess any materials that would be valuable to the case, he said police will be contacting him and would like to look at what he found."I think we've seen it before, but we just want to be on the safe side and be sure," Todd said.When Hagen was asked if he would show the materials to police if they requested to see them, he said, "If they come with a search warrant. If not, no."When told what Hagen said, Todd laughed. "We'll talk to him," he said, "and see where things go from there."Crews and Hoehn have each been charged with conspiracy to commit murder and kidnapping in the death of 22-year-old LaFontaine-Greywind who disappeared in August while eight months pregnant and whose body was found in the Red River eight days later.When police raided the couple's apartment in August and arrested Crews, they found a newborn child, which proved to belong to LaFontaine-Greywind and her boyfriend Ashton Matheny.Ethical questionsTodd and Burdick said there was nothing illegal about Hagen taking personal property from a dumpster. However, a journalism professor at the University of Missouri, Columbia, raised questions about whether everything Hagen did was ethical.Lee Wilkins, a professor emeritus and co-author of a textbook on media ethics, said there was nothing wrong with Hagen looking for information in a dumpster or even publishing details from someone's journal. But she questioned Hagen's reporting of information about Crews' health history, which he based on hospital records.He doesn't say how he obtained those records, but hospitals are forbidden by law from releasing such information."Publishing her medical records is an invasion of privacy," she said.Wilkins paramount ethical concern, however, is whether Hagen can prove that all of the materials he found, such as the journals, actually belonged to Crews."How do they know that the diaries are genuine?" Wilkins asked. "Did they talk to the person who they say wrote it? Did they get any kind of confirmation?"When asked how he knows all the materials he found belonged to Crews, Hagen said, "That's self-explanatory." He refused to elaborate. Quizzed on what proof he has that the materials are authentic, he said, "I'm not going to tell you."... (WDAY)
Saito said. “Our rangers don’t have the time or manpower to get out here and get this type of work done.”Stacy Baas, who attended the cleanup with her daughter and their friends in the PerSisters of Oakland, said the event was a learning experience for them.“It’s ready eye-opening to see the impacts of things we buy and the things we throw away,” Baas said. “When I tell my daughter ‘maybe we shouldn’t take that extra straw,’ now she can see what happens to it.”Heidi Schmidt, who volunteered at the event with her sons George and Albert and their Boy Scouts of America Troop 78 of Alameda, was amazed at the odd items they found, like toys and single — for some reason, mostly left — shoes.“It’s exciting because you never know what you’re going to find,” Schmidt said.The park district had an informal contest to see who could find the oddest item. Contenders included a car grille and firework shells.Mike Loder, who has volunteered at the event for years, said the shoreline appeared to have been cleaner than in past years. He said the event has also grown.Other Day of Service events were held throughout the city over the three-day weekend. The city organized cleanups on Saturday at sites in North Oakland, West Oakland, Chinatown, Fruitvale and East Oakland.Community groups organized service projects in Sobrante Park on Monday. City Councilman Dan Kalb sponsored a blood drive Monday at the American Red Cross Blood Donation Center.Two large groups that participated in the shoreline cleanup together were the Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc., Epsilon Phi Zeta Chapter and the Girl Scout Troop 30017. The sorority is a traditionally African-American organization, and on Martin Luthe...
