PANORAMA CITY – A reputed member of a Van Nuys tagging crew called Notorious Criminals tried to flee police on a Razr Scooter the other day after he and an accomplice allegedly held up a man for his beer, police said. Jose Murillo, 18, of Van Nuys, hopped on his metal scooter Monday night after allegedly using a knife and handcuffs to stick up and detain a 22-year-old man while he and his partner in crime, David Flores, 19, of Sun Valley, took two 24-ounce Icehouse beers and went through his pockets in the 14600 block of Roscoe Boulevard, police said. A witness called the cops, and when they arrived they saw the two suspects try to hide behind a wall. When cops got closer, Murillo took off on a scooter but didn’t get very far, said Los Angeles Police Detective Marc Martinez. Both men were being held at the Los Angeles County Jail on robbery charges. Bail for both was set at $1 million.
DONEGAL TD Thomas Pringle has called for the creation of jobs as a condition of grant aid under seafood business development and seafood processing schemes to ensure that the maximum number of jobs are created and maintained in the seafood processing sector.“Operated by Bord Iascaigh Mhara, the Seafood Processing Business Investment Scheme which began in 2010 had the creation of employment as a key element in the selection of seafood processing projects for financial assistance under the Scheme, but it was not mandatory,” said Deputy Pringle.“Speaking in reply to questions posed by me Minister Coveney stated that he is proposing to change grant support for ‘value added’ processing from 25% to 30%, and reduce the grant rate for ‘processing improvements’ to 20% in an effort to steer this sector towards value added processing to encourage diversification and job creation. “But grant announcements are misleading for workers in the fishing industry as it appears from grant announcements that are made that they are linked to the number of jobs, but that these jobs are more aspirational and not really the deciding factor.“For example the Killybegs High Level Group Report in June 2011 announced the creation of 250 jobs based on grant approvals, but these jobs are not a condition of grant aid making it difficult to verify if these jobs have been created and where.“While I welcome the increase in the value added grant, there needs to be a focus on it creating jobs and I am calling on the Minister to create that concrete link by making job creation a condition for such grants,” stated Pringle. ********Donegaldaily.com – Donegal’s No1 News & Sports Website – more than 30,000 Visitors Every DayFollow the leader on:https://twitter.com/DonegalDaily SEAFOOD BUSINESSES MUST CREATE JOBS TO GET GRANTS – DONEGAL TD was last modified: February 18th, 2013 by BrendaShare 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) Tags:KillybegsSEAFOOD BUSINESSES MUST CREATE JOBS TO GET GRANTS – DONEGAL TDThomas Pringle
