Salon Meritage Shooting Memorial Flowers Candles Seal Beach

UGH! We are gutted!

This is so horrible and waaay too scary!

Scott Dekraai allegedly went berserk yesterday, storming into Seal Beach's Salon Meritage and killing eight people, including his ex-wife Michelle Dekraai. He left a ninth victim in critical condition.

Those in the community believe the rage erupted from a passionate court battle involving the custody of their seven-year-old son.

According to the police, Dekraai was found and arrested about a half-mile from the scene of the crime.

SoCal Grocery Store Union May Go On Strike Monday!

Filed under: Food

Ralphs

Prepare to start bagging your own food at the grocery store next week. Employees of El Lay's favorite grocery store chains have been cleared by union officials to go on strike Monday.

Upset over low wages and corporate unwillingness to contribute more to rising health care costs, the United Food and Commercial Workers union issued a 72-hour notice on Thursday to cancel their contract extension with Ralphs, Vons, and Albertsons.

UFCW union leaders said in a statement:

“We’re ready to fight to preserve good jobs. We understand this is a tough economy, but we’re willing to stand up for workers everywhere being taken advantage of by profitable corporations."

Although they've been given permission to strike and the picket signs are made, that doesn't mean the employees will ACTUALLY go on strike. Vons said in a statement:

"The notice does not mean a strike is imminent or that a strike will necessarily occur at any point. The notice simply allows the union the ability to call a strike if they choose to do so. Vons and the other employers intend to remain focused on the negotiation process and urge the unions to do so the same."

We appreciate our friendly neighborhood grocery store employees! Especially the workers that offer to help take our groceries to our car. Even though we never accept, it's always appreciated!

Good luck in the negotiations UFCW 770!

Former NBA Player Turns Himself In Arrested For Murder Charges

Filed under: Legal MattersSad SadBasketball

Former NBA player Javaris Crittenton, who was suspended from the Washington Wizards after bringing a firearm into the locker room, has been arrested after being charged with murder.

Authorities in Atlanta, Georgia believe Crittenton is responsible for the August 19th murder of a 22-year-old woman who was shot as she was walking on the street in the city.

The former basketball star, who played for Georgia Tech in college, had fled to Los Angeles with a one-way ticket, but agreed to turn himself in after being charged.

Before he could turn himself in, however, FBI apprehended him at John Wayne Airport in Southern California on Monday night.

At least they got him one way or the other.

Check out the video above for more details surrounding the case against Crittenton.

Chipotle Running Out Of Chicken

Chipotle Running Out Of Chicken

Chipotle’s in trouble!

They are running low on natural chicken — specifically in Southern California.

This is a problem for Chipotle because they pride themselves on serving only all-natural chicken.

A spokesman for Chipotle said that there was a “disruption” in the supply chain, but no other explanation has been given as to why there’s a shortage.

Hopefully Chipotle sticks to its promise of only serving natural chicken! It may lose a little money in the short run, but it will earn our respect in the long run!
