Seaside Heights Roars Back To Life For Memorial Day Weekend

SEASIDE HEIGHTS, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — The unofficial start to summer has arrived from Coney Island to Wildwood, and it’s no more evident than on the new-and-improved Seaside Heights boardwalk. Blue skies, the beautiful ocean breeze, and the smell of food were everywhere to be found as crowds flocked to the Jersey Shore hot spot. Barbara and Steven Rosette were content as ever while getting in some exercise before the festivities began. “We’re here, that’s all that counts,” Steven said. “We were here last weekend too,” wife Barbara said. “We don’t care what the weather is doing.” Dennis was prepared for a much cooler day, so the sun was a pleasant surprise for him. “Was expecting some rain and didn’t get any, so it’s a great day,” he tells WCBS 880’s Kelly Waldron. It was so warm, in fact, that he had to run to his car to dump his unneeded sweatshirt. On Friday, Governor Chris Christie kicked off his final Memorial Day Weekend trip to the shore with a pit stop at the Seaside Heights boardwalk. Christie helped christen a new roller coaster that helped replace the one destroyed by Superstorm Sandy. The Republican has made trips to the shore on the Friday before Memorial Day a tradition. Christie leaves office in January. Read More »

Rapist, Deported Drug Trafficker Among Nearly 200 Arrested In Immigration Crackdown

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) – A convicted rapist and a previously deported cocaine trafficker were among nearly 200 criminal aliens and immigration fugitives arrested in a Los Angeles-area crackdown, authorities said Thursday. Officials with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) division say of those arrested, 169, or almost 90 percent, had prior criminal convictions, primarily drug offenses, DUIs and domestic violence. Among those arrested were: A 29-year-old Salvadoran national convicted of rape in California who officials say was deported in 2013 after serving a nine-year prison term, but subsequently returned to the U.S. illegally; A previously deported 51-year-old Mexican national arrested May 22 in La Puente who served three years in the California Department of Corrections following his conviction for cocaine trafficking; A 47-year-old Mexican national with prior convictions for felony assault and another conviction for battery, and whom DHS say was released in 2014 by local authorities despite an ICE detainer; and A 26-year-old Salvadoran national with a final order of removal arrested May 21 in Azusa who is a registered sex offender based upon his 2014 conviction for having unlawful sex with a minor. “Operations like this are emblematic of the vital work ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations officers do every day seeking to locate, arrest, and ultimately deport at-large convicted criminals and other immigration fugitives who pose a threat to public safety,” said David Marin, field office director for ERO in Los Angeles. “By taking these individuals off the streets and removing them from the country, we’re making our communities safer for everyone.” At least eight of the individuals arrested during the just concluded enforcement action now face federal prosecution for re-entry after deportation, a felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison, authorities said. Los Angeles County had the highest number of arrests — 93, followed by 26 in Riverside County, 23 in Orange County, 21 in San Bernardino County, 14 in Ventura County and 11 in Santa Barbara County. Nine of the arrests were made in Riverside, with four in Moreno Valley, three each in Corona and Perris, two in Indio, and one each in Hemet, Menifee and Norco. The majority of those arrested – 80 percent – were from Mexico. Smaller numbers were identified as Salvadoran, Guatemalan, Armenian and Russian nationals. Since President Trump signed an executive order on immigration enforcement, ICE has arrested more than 41,000 people nationwide who are either known or suspected of being in the country illegally, a nearly 40 percent increase over the same period in 2016. Officials say almost 75 percent of those arrested during this period in 2017 are convicted criminals, with offenses ranging from homicide and assault to sexual abuse and drug-related charges. In the greater Los Angeles area, ICE officers made 2,273 administrative arrests during that same time period, including 2,049 criminal aliens, according to official data.

Therapist Blames American Couples’ Sex Slump On Social Media, Lack of Communication

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com)  —   A new study reveals there’s a serious lack of love-making these days. Research published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior found Americans had sex nine times fewer in the early part of this decade than they did in the late 1990s. The biggest decline was among younger couples. Beverly Hills couple therapist Fran Walfish isn’t surprised by the findings. “What I see in younger couples is one partner doesn’t want sex and the other does and they submit because all of their attempts have been refused and failed,” she said. Ryan Rosengren and Danielle Vaughn say when it’s been awhile it’s not because there’s a lack of passion. “You get caught up in, like, busy lives and work,” Vaughn said. Angela Hughes has her own “go-to” plan when she isn’t feeling it. “I just go to the bathroom and strategically wait for him to be asleep,” she laughed, explaining, “We have four kids.” Many couples also find themselves in a bedtime battle with electronics. “Social media has become a force to be reckoned with,” Walfish said. A breakdown in communication in also to blame. Walfish advises couples to talk about desires without criticism to help get over the slump. “Listen to your partner without becoming defensive,” she said, adding, “Do not expect to have conditions where you give, they have to give.” Being “overly clingy” can also backfire, she said. Another possible sex slump solution? Leave worries outside the bedroom. Experts emphasize sex is not just beneficial for a healthy relationship but can also be a great form of exercise and can have positive effects on overall well-being. Some suggest it can even boost employee morale. In a small town in Sweden, an official recently proposed the idea of giving city employees an hour-long “paid break” each week to go home and have sex.

Reality TV Star Latest Celebrity Allegedly Victim Of Home Burglary

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com)   –  Scott Disick, who appears on “Keeping up With the Kardashians” as Kourtney’s sometimes-estranged boyfriend and father of her three children, is the latest celebrity to report a break-in at their home. KCAL 9’s Brittney Hopper spoke to Disick neighbors who wondered how all of this happened in their exclusive, gated community of Hidden Hills. In fact, one neighbor told her it sounded like an inside job. Disick wasn’t home during the burglary. Could it be happening because the reality stars are so open about their schedules and travel plans? “I think that all of these people are profiled because they are big names and they’re celebs and with all Google maps and everything they are easy to find,” said one neighbor who chose not to give his name. The neighbor lives near Disick in the same gated community. He says this is happening too often nowadays even behind the gates and that’s why he says he thinks this was an inside job. Deputies say a sliding glass door appeared to have been forced open. They responded to a burglary alarm at the home just after 1:20 Sunday morning. (credit: CBS)_ “There is so much security in here and it’s a very difficult place to get into so they are obviously getting in somehow and we’ve got to get to the bottom of it. It’s not the first time that it’s happened here,” the neighbor said. The Disick robbery is just the latest that has hit celebrities in Los Angeles since January.  The others include singer Alanis Morissette, Dodger Yasiel Puig, Fabio, Amber Rose and Nicki Minaj, among others. In many of the crimes, cash and jewelry worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, or more, has been stolen. Late Wednesday evening, rapper A$AP Rocky allegedly had more than a $1 million in cash and jewelry stolen from his home.  To make this even more “all in the family,” the rapper is said to be dating Kourtney’s half-sister, Kendall Jenner. Deputies have not said what was taken from inside Disick’s home or announced a monetary value. Read More »

BELLEROSE TERRACE, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — A little girl was hurt after police say someone threw a rock at her mother’s vehicle. As WCBS 880’s Sophia Hall reports, it seemingly came out of nowhere just before 8:30 p.m. Friday when Nassau Police say a 38-year-old mother was driving on the Cross Island Parkway near Superior Road when she heard a loud crash. It was her rear passenger window. Next to that window was the woman’s three-year-old girl, covered in shattered glass. Police were called and the child was rushed to a local hospital where she was treated for cuts and scrapes and released. Authorities found the rock used to shatter the window, but they’re still looking for the person responsible. Recently in Nassau County, two young men were convicted of throwing bricks at cars. One driver suffered permanent eye injuries. They each face up to 25-years in prison. Read More »
