Chancellor Rhee to wed Sept. 4
The paper reported Tuesday that invitations say that the wedding will begin at 4 p.m. at St. John's Lutheran Church in Sacramento. A party afterward is at the estate of developer and longtime Johnson supporter Angelo K. Tsakopoulos.
The Bee said the invitations came in a box wrapped with a silver bow. The package includes directions to the Tsakopoulos estate, though the developer’s name is misspelled.
According to California law, there is no cap on the value of wedding gifts given to politicians, but Mr. Johnson will have to report any gift valued at more than $50.
Teens drown during family outing
SHREVEPORT | Seven teenagers from two families were splashing around in the shallow waters of the Red River when one of them stepped off a slippery ledge and plummeted into much deeper water. The others tried to save the boy even though none of them could swim, but they too were swallowed by the water some 20 to 30 feet deep.
Their relatives, who couldn’t swim either, looked on helplessly as six struggling teens screamed for help, then vanished and drowned on Monday afternoon.
DeKendrix Warner, the 15-year-old who was the first to fall in, was rescued by a bystander.
The large group of family and friends had gathered for an afternoon of swimming and barbecuing in the oppressive heat. The group had been at the river for about 10 minutes when tragedy struck.
Those who drowned were identified as the Warners: 13-year-old Takeitha and her elder brothers, 14-year-old JaMarcus and 17-year-old JaTavious. The others were the Stewarts: 18-year-old Litrelle, 17-year-old LaDairus and 15-year-old Latevin.
