ALHAMBRA – Authorities have arrested the boyfriend of the woman who was shot to death here Sunday in a motel parking lot. Juan Manuel Linares, 27, was taken into custody at 4:50 p.m. Monday and is being held at the Alhambra Police Department for the slaying of 20-year-old Yessenia Macias. Investigators believe the couple, both of Los Angeles, were arguing when they pulled into the Town House Motel parking lot in Alhambra. Macias was shot at about 7:15 p.m. Sunday while sitting in the passenger’s seat. “It appears there was some kind of confrontation between Linares and Macias,” said Lt. Dan Rosenberg of the Los Angeles County sheriff’s Homicide Bureau. “We believe he shot her.” She was shot in the left side of her head, said Sgt. Joe Flannagan of the Alhambra Police Department. It is unclear what caused the couple’s argument. Linares is being held on $100,000 bail and is scheduled to appear at Alhambra Superior Court on Thursday. The case is being reviewed by the District Attorney’s Office. Linares was initially being interviewed at the police station as a witness. He had told authorities he was getting out of the car when he heard a shot ring out, and turned around to find Macias hurt, Rosenberg said. However, other witness accounts and evidence at the scene contradicted him. After Macias was shot, Linares drove her to Los Angeles Community Hospital in East Los Angeles. She was then transported to Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead. Sunday night’s shooting is the second to occur on the western edge of Alhambra in just over two weeks. On June 15, Jaime Raul Saldana, 37, was shot by an unknown assailant while driving south on the Long Beach (710) Freeway north of the Santa Monica (10) Freeway near Valley Boulevard. The Los Angeles resident was pronounced dead at the scene. The shooting, which occurred about 11:20 a.m. was apparently the result of a traffic dispute, authorities said then. email@example.com (626) 578-6300, Ext. 4586 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

1 Roberto Firmino’s header was enough to earn Liverpool a 1-0 win at West Brom and keep their top four challenge on track.The Brazilian nodded in a first-half winner to settle an unremarkable game and extend the Reds’ unbeaten Premier League run to seven matches. Jurgen Klopp’s side climbed over Manchester City into third, having played a game more, to strengthen their claim on a Champions League qualification spot.Firmino settled a poor match of few clear chances at the Hawthorns, although Nacer Chadli and James Milner wasted fine openings. Albion have now taken just four points – against Manchester United and Arsenal – from their last seven games as their bid to break 50 points for the first time in the Premier League falters. Despite their struggles, the Baggies began brightly and Hal Robson-Kanu directed Matt Phillips’ effort wide but Liverpool gradually took control and nearly went ahead after 15 minutes. Claudio Yacob squandered possession to Philippe Coutinho and he played in Firmino but the Brazilian dragged his angled shot wide. The visitors bossed the early stages, although it was Albion who created the best opening when Chadli was left red-faced after 23 minutes. Gareth McAuley found Phillips and he hooked the ball to the far post with Chadli waiting to tap in but the former Tottenham man missed his kick from four yards, having been put off by the slightest of touches from Firmino. Immediately Coutinho volleyed wide at the other end and the lively Robson-Kanu fired straight at Simon Mignolet 10 minutes before the break but they were brief flash points in a tedious game. Albion sat deep and denied Liverpool space, with their plan working until the Reds broke the monotony to grab the winner seconds before half-time.Lucas flicked on James Milner’s right-wing free-kick and Firmino stole ahead of Craig Dawson to head in. It gave Liverpool impetus and they should have doubled their lead 11 minutes after the restart. The visitors had maintained control and a precise build-up sent Firmino scampering into the area but Milner could only volley over his floated cross. Divock Origi’s header was disallowed for offside shortly afterwards and all Liverpool needed to win was to keep their concentration. The Baggies offered little threat until 10 minutes from time when Mignolet needed to be alert to preserve the points. Firmino, of all people, lost the ball to Salomon Rondon and he teed-up Phillips only for the winger to be thwarted by the on-rushing Mignolet. And substitute Alberto Moreno should have settled it in stoppage time but, after goalkeeper Ben Foster had come up for a corner and been dispossessed, shot wide of an open goal from 40 yards.

Deputy Pearse Doherty has slammed the Government over its failure to tackle hospital waiting lists following the latest data published by the National Treatment Purchase Fund (NTPF) which has again revealed that Outpatient waiting lists are continuing to reach record highs.The data shows that there are now a total of 15,420 people awaiting a first appointment at a Consultant-led clinic at the hospital, up from 15,326 the month previous.The figures represent a 20% increase compared to the same period two years ago. Meanwhile, 2,692 patients have been on outpatient waiting lists at the hospital for over 18 months – the longest waiting category recognised by the NTPF. Deputy Doherty said “A few weeks ago when the NTPF published waiting list data for August which showed that over 15,300 people were then waiting to be seen by a consultant at Letterkenny Hospital, I was extremely critical of the Government for its response in tackling the health crisis.“Since then, the body has published its latest data for the month of September which shows that there are now 15,420 patients waiting for outpatient treatment across the various specialities – twenty per cent more than two years ago.“Moreover, the number of patients recorded as having been waiting for 18 months or longer has gone up each month during 2018 and now stands at 2,692.“This situation is out of control and yet the Government has done little to try and resolve the problem of ever-growing waiting lists at LUH. “The records clearly show that more and more patients are being forced to wait longer and longer to receive treatment, and yet we have a government that is doing nothing to ensure that patients here can access treatment in a timely manner.”And Deputy Doherty says matters are only getting worse as we face into winter.“We are now facing into winter and, despite repeated warnings from opposition TDs, health professionals and others, there is no doubt that these waiting lists will inevitably worsen as our hospitals are set for yet another winter overcrowding crisis.“And despite repeated calls from myself and others in Sinn Féin for clarity with respect to the government’s announced plans to increase bed capacity in our acute public hospitals, including a commitment to reopen the Short Stay Ward at Letterkenny, there is still much uncertainty surrounding when these beds will come on stream.”15,420 on Outpatient Treatment list at hospital as numbers rise was last modified: November 6th, 2018 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)

For Hub City TimesWISCONSIN DELLS – Neillsville area driver, Darek Gress took first in a 55-lap Feature in the CWRA Stars to Legends Tour, Lyle Nabbefeldt Memorial race held May 26 at Dells Raceway Park, Wisconsin Dells.Thayran Rezin, Tomah, took the other 55-lap Feature of the night.The second 55-lap Feature was shortened to 30 laps, due to area curfew and time constraints with Mike Reichenberger, Appleton, setting the early pace. His lead was short lived, however. By lap two, Mitch Stankowski, Wausau, a Rookie of the Year candidate, took the lead.Rapidly moving from his sixth starting spot, was Gress, moving in front by the third go round. Chad Butz, Green Bay, was right behind Gress and looking to challenge for the lead. The two raced nose to tail and side-by-side for a number of laps before Gress secured the position for good.St. Paul, MN, driver, Paul Paine in his first tour race, grabbed the third position on the 27th lap, and although fast, was no match for the two front runners settling into that position. Jesse Bernhagen, Neillsville started all the way back in 12th position, but was steadily moving toward the front. Advancing into the second spot, it appeared Bernhagen had a chance to catch Gress for the win. A spin, all by himself, in turn three ended those chances.Rounding out the top finishers in the race were Gress in first, followed by Butz; Paine; Reichenberger; Jeff Weinfurter, Wisconsin Rapids; and Darren Jackson, Wisconsin Rapids.Next up is the CWRA Stars to Legends Tour action, on June 1st at Marshfield Motor Speedway, where the Salute to America, twin 30-lap Features will be held.
