JEFFERSON CITY, MO. — Instead of proposing budget cuts in his annual state of the state address, Gov. Mike Parson wants lawmakers to raise salaries, spend more money on education and invest in child care children.

In the governor’s nearly hour-long speech, he praised the state’s approach to the pandemic, saying Missouri’s economy is strong. The state has a historic amount of money at its disposal, and the multi-billion dollar budget includes raising teachers’ salaries.

“We have the opportunity to make fundamental improvements to our state that will serve the people of Missouri now and in the future,” Parson said. “None of this would have been possible without the efforts of the state government to mitigate the impacts of COVID-19.”

Parson praised the state’s surplus money for Missouri’s COVID response, saying leaders made tough decisions but never backed down.

“That’s why we’ve never had state mandates or forced businesses or schools or churches to close,” Parson said. “We have protected lives and livelihoods.”

Over the past week, Missouri has reported more than 62,000 new COVID cases, or about 9,000 new cases per day. “When it comes to the fight against the pandemic, the governor’s hands-off approach continues to exact a heavy toll with new cases breaking records almost daily,” House Minority Leader Crystal Quade told reporters. D-Springfield, after the speech. “Reality is forcing many schools to consider closing as student and teacher absences soar.”

Quade’s own children were inside the Capitol on Wednesday after the Springfield Public School District, the state’s largest, closed for the rest of the week due to the virus.

“Just like so many working parents are currently struggling day to day as schools continue to close,” Quade said.

Parson reiterated on Wednesday; his position will not change.

“We used common sense and took a balanced approach to the pandemic,” Parson said. “I strongly believe that the people should have a say through their local elected officials and not be dictated by unnecessary executive action or by one person.”

Another major element of his speech, the increase in the wages of state employees to 15 dollars an hour and the increase in the salary of teachers.

“Half of our new teachers leave the profession in their fifth year,” Parson said. “This is unacceptable and we need to do better.”

Fly on the wall more remarkable than ‘Hype House’ – The Daily Evergreen https://carolchanning.org/fly-on-the-wall-more-remarkable-than-hype-house-the-daily-evergreen/ Tue, 18 Jan 2022 08:02:11 +0000 https://carolchanning.org/fly-on-the-wall-more-remarkable-than-hype-house-the-daily-evergreen/ “Hype House” not very hype at all I was browsing Netflix the other day, like you do when you have nothing better to do.

“Hype House” not very hype at all

I was browsing Netflix the other day, like you do when you have nothing better to do. There I came across a reality TV show called “Hype House”.

Now, I generally steer clear of any reality TV due to its lack of authenticity. But I was bored, so I clicked on the trailer.

For those who don’t know, the Hype House is basically a collection of teenage TikTok personalities living in a multimillion-dollar mansion based in Los Angeles. It is a place where its members can easily collaborate and help each other.

It formed in December 2019 and has generated mega famous social media influencers, such as Charli D’Amelio, Dixie D’Amelio and Addison Rae.

Since I’m usually on the opposite side of TikTok, I was surprised to see several familiar faces in the trailer, such as Chase Hudson (also known as Lil Huddy), Nikita Dragun, and Vinnie Hacker. So, like any other student, I followed the series until the early hours with popcorn on my knees and a blanket over my head.

I finished it a few hours ago, so here are my impressions:

It was incredibly boring.

Like I said before, I don’t have much experience with reality TV, but is it always supposed to be this boring to watch?

I thought I clicked to be entertained by catfights and heavy betrayals. Instead, I watched millionaires complain about the lack of brand partnership videos and insist on the overall decline in viewer engagement.

I found the fly on my wall more amusing than this show, to say the least.

It was also more than depressing. Like, Netflix, why would I enjoy watching a show if its cast members aren’t even having fun?

Thomas Petrou, founder of the Hype House, seemed to be the most unhappy of them all. He was either stressed out about keeping a failing “business” afloat, or was crying on the floor not wanting to go back where he came from.

Again, I ask you, Netflix, why would I want to watch this? Why would I find that amusing? Why would I want to see someone suffer so terribly?

I didn’t like it at all.

The depressing undertone actually fueled much of the main plot – or rather the only plot – of the series. Time and time again, I had to watch cast members fail to separate their work and personal lives, which led to more misery.

For example, Hype House member Alex Warren convinced his longtime girlfriend Kouvr Annon to accompany a fake wedding for a video. I had to watch Annon suffer in silence, saying she would marry Warren for real, because Warren insisted he only wanted to pretend.

Why would I want to see someone’s heart break before my eyes? Again, why would I find that amusing?

Above all, though, I wasn’t too fond of the show’s scripted stereotypes.

I see them on every other reality TV show, and I walked into this show out of ignorance thinking they’d give up on this whole marketing strategy. Alas, they did not.

Producers and editors stereotyped all of the cast members – some harshly and some not so harshly. For example, producers and editors described House member Mia Hayward as the “bad guy” who spoiled the original Hype House dynamic.

Thousands of Hayward Twitter posts may confirm this stereotype.

Mia better get canceled after talking shit! I wasn’t chasing her dreams“, wrote a user.

Another user wrote:this female dog mia on the hype house netflix show is so boring girl im gonna stick your mouth shut jesus christ.”

I found it unpleasant to see Hayward being blamed for the sinking when the ship was already sinking before arriving on the scene. I mean, it seemed like everyone was blatantly ignoring other possible factors contributing to the problems within the Hype House, such as Petrou eliminating the fun by taking a more commercial approach.

And yet, Hayward went down with the ship.

The “Hype House”, while boring and depressing, actually showed how seriously everyone takes their careers in the industry. Most of its members came from toxic and abusive homes, but they worked hard and made a name for themselves against all odds.

Perhaps, if you’re considering watching this wretched show, this can be your main takeaway: no matter how crap your hand is, you can still give a royal flush.

So don’t give up and chase your dreams. But remember to put your mental health before your career, so you don’t end up sad and depressed like most Hype House.

Rick Williams will be the perfect replacement for Jim Gardner on Channel 6 at 11 p.m. https://carolchanning.org/rick-williams-will-be-the-perfect-replacement-for-jim-gardner-on-channel-6-at-11-p-m/ Sun, 16 Jan 2022 16:11:58 +0000 https://carolchanning.org/rick-williams-will-be-the-perfect-replacement-for-jim-gardner-on-channel-6-at-11-p-m/ Channel 6 made two moves last week that surprised me, not unpleasantly.

Channel 6 made two moves last week that surprised me, not unpleasantly.

One of them, the nomination of veteran anchor Rick Williams, to fill the 11 p.m. anchor position vacated after almost 45 years by Jim Gardner, further stunned by a miscalculation in my analysis of how 6 ABC could replace Gardner only by the station’s decision.

The other, the hiring of one-time local talent, Jillian Mele, most recently at Fox News Channel, broke, again by my reckoning, a habit established by Channel 6 before Gardner spoke into his first mic there -low. In my recollection, and this goes back to the beginning of “Action News”, Channel 6 never employed anyone, for on-air service anyway, who worked at a rival Philadelphia television station.

People – Steve Levy, Marc Howard, Dave Frankel – left Channel 6 for local pastures they hoped would find greener – but Channel 6 never welcomed a stray that had been linked to a competitor.

Rick Williams is a plausible and logical choice for Gardner’s successor.

The reason Channel 6 does not import top players from other stations is that it recruits young talent, grooms them in its style, which is different from other stations, and promotes them from within. Many people who have considered moving to other markets or national berths have remained with Channel 6 because of the station’s loyalty and its ability to give them a prominent position in a television station which may have more viewers than national broadcasts.

Rick Williams was ready for his turn. He has worked at Channel 6 since 1988, has performed important anchor assignments on midday and early evening shows and has built up a solid following.

His main competitors for Gardner’s 11 p.m. spot were Matt O’Donnell, who came to Channel 6 in 1996 and spent most of his time there as an early morning newscaster, and Brian Taff, who came to WPVI-TV in 2009 and is a presenter of the 4pm show and 10pm newscast, Channel 6 presents on and for Channel 17.

During his tenure at Channel 6, Williams established himself as a strong anchor while breaking some Channel 6 moulds. For example, his distinctive way of speaking when most at Channel 6 use more conversational tones and her wardrobe, which is hands and feet above the quality and craftsmanship of anyone else on the market, at Channel 6 or otherwise.

He’s the logical choice due to his longevity, as he paid his dues with several anchor roles while Gardner chaired Channel 6’s prime time shows at 6pm and 11pm (the question for the rest of this year is whether Williams gets the 6 p.m. anchor job when Gardner retires fully in December.)

For me, he was not the obvious choice. I appreciate Williams’ ability and have found him affable the few times we’ve met, but he’s never struck me as someone who puts the news and the stories it presents above all else. a desire to be a television personality. Of the three who could have taken Gardner’s place, Williams seems the farthest from the news.

This does not necessarily diminish his skills as an anchor. His voice and presentation style are the most distinctive on the market. He definitely has a connection to his audience, something Channel 6 would have studied extensively before granting him the all-important 11pm show. The affability I mentioned carries over to his on-air persona.

He may, I believe, be the right person at a time when local news is less like a journalistic effort and more like a general information broadcast.

The 11pm job is now his, and I imagine he’ll retain Gardner’s viewership and keep Channel 6 in a strong position to dominate the local ratings. Channel 6 viewers barely need to get used to Rick. He has been delivering news to them for 34 years and often replaced Gardner at ages 6 and 11.

The biggest surprise was the hiring of Mele, who was recently the subject of a news report saying she wanted to leave Fox to be closer to her family in Philadelphia and have a more standard life.

Mele’s first major job was as a sports reporter for Channel 10. When the station decided to forgo a home-based sports department to import stories from Comcast Sports, she went to the former CN8 (now NBC Sports Philadelphia ) being one of four hosts of a morning show called “Breakfast on Broad”.

Until recently, she was one of the hosts of Fox News Channel’s national morning show, “Fox & Friends.”

Mele is a versatile broadcaster and can fill multiple roles, Channel 6’s sports department looks solid with Ducis Rodgers, Jamie Apody and Jeff Skversky, but Mele can be all of a presenter, perhaps taking on the roles that Rick Williams is giving up as he becomes the principal of 6 ABC. face, to a general assignment reporter or even a feature reporter or interview segment host.

The fit, in Channel 6 terms, is different from the station’s history, but it makes sense.

Gardner’s release a classic

Jim Gardner’s farewell speech at the end of Channel 6’s 11pm newscast last Tuesday was an exact capsule of what has made Jim so great and welcome for almost 44 years.

His tenure as Channel 6’s main presenter spanned from May 11, 1977, as Jim noted, to January 11, 2022. All the while he did his job with dignity, wit, a touch of self-effacement and, above all, of everything, an emphasis on the newscast at hand and the stories told and not on himself.

That ease, lack of vanity, and lack of ego showed in Jim’s latest signing at 11 p.m. Above all, he talked about the great opportunity he had to bring news from some 16,000 shows to his audience, how much he trusted and was guided by Channel 6’s intention to deliver a news program of high quality that prepared the viewer for his or her day, and how lucky he was to be surrounded by so many exceptional professionals.

Jim has had the grace to mention names the average viewer never hears, even though they’re the people who’ve floated “Action News” into the number one chart position since 1977. Yes, Jim Gardner’s freshman year at anchor desk.

Of his colleagues, he mentioned two who were with him early on as “Action News” bolstered his identity and popularity – retired weatherman Dave Roberts and late athletic director Gary Papa.

Jim’s farewell was well written, beautifully presented and, you could tell, heartfelt.

He didn’t mention his own greatness or his talent for running an amiable and informative show, but one was always confident to hear a story from Jim Gardner. His intelligence, his sense of topicality, have always shone through his communication skills, those which gave the impression that he was speaking directly to you.

We don’t have to miss Jim just yet. He takes his nights to be with his family and live a more communal existence than someone who has no personal time from 3 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. He continues to be at the 6 ABC anchor office at 6 p.m. until 2022.

At the end of Jim’s farewell speech, his colleagues Cecily Tynan and Jamie Apody gave him a helping hand which I think represented the feelings of Jim’s viewers.
His successor, Rick Williams, came to join in the applause but made an inconsiderate gesture as he waved Jim off the anchor chair that the following night would be his. Williams’ first night as an official 11 p.m. presenter, he hoped Jim was “sleeping well”.

I have to be careful of that inappropriate humor, Rick. It seemed more misjudged, particularly in terms of viewers’ attitudes towards Jim, than funny.

Meanwhile, Jim Gardner made his first of two scheduled outings this year with all the class, wisdom and friendliness that make him one of the most important and beloved figures in all of television history. of Philadelphia.

Too many deaths on television already in 2022

The start of 2022 has been a cruel one for TV favorites of yesteryear.

After the death of Betty White on Jan. 6 and the passing of Sidney Poitier on Jan. 6, the bad news continues to pour in, among the saddest being the death of the ‘Love That Bob’ and ‘Dobie Gillis’ actor. , Dwayne Hickman, and the “Full House” star. , Philadelphia native and Abington High graduate, Bob Saget.

Saget’s sudden passing was perhaps the hardest to come to terms with.

White and Poitier were 90, Hickman was 87. Saget was 65 and died alone in an Orlando hotel room just after entertaining an audience in a nearby Florida town.

Dwayne Hickman was a television staple. His stints as impressionable teenager Chuck on the Bob Cummings sitcom, and as Dobie Gillis, perpetually in love with his unrequited love for Tuesday Weld’s Thalia Minninger on “The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis,” made loved by fans of these shows and instilled pride in Mr. Hickman’s fans felt it when he became a successful television producer.

Saget was a staple with his starring role in “Full House” and as host of “America’s Funniest Home Videos.” He seemed so young and dynamic that it was hard to imagine he was 65 years old.

Saget was one of those artists who instantly warmed up when he appeared on screen. He seems to have had a lot ahead of him as a performer and householder.

Other notable deaths this month include Ronettes lead singer Ronnie Spector, excellent blacksmith and composer Marilyn Bergman, excellent television and theater critic Terry Teachout of the Wall Street Journal, director Peter Bogdanovich and the actress Joan Copeland.

On a local note, one of the most able and dedicated writers on the arts, Steve Cohen, died on January 6 at the age of 87.

Steve, who was one of the students who started WRTI-FM during his days at Temple and spoke regularly about opera and classical music, was heard frequently on WHYY-FM and at one time had a show on this station.

“Ozark” returns

This week can’t go fast enough.

While shows like “Lupin” and “Safe” and “Vera” have sustained me through a busy time on TV that’s also a drought, the show I’ve enjoyed the most over the past few years in ” Ozark”.

Finally, on Friday, “Ozark” returns to Netflix to begin its fourth season.

“Ozark” season four is unique because it features 14 shows that will unfold in two separate seasons of seven shows each. The producers say this is the show’s final season, and to complete the play they love, they needed more than the usual number of episodes. So there are 14 episodes.

The first seven can be broadcast on Friday. The next seven have been completed and are expected to air in early fall.

Four homegrown athletes can be forgiven some degree of tunnel vision as they take to the field on Super Bowl Sunday. Getting familiar with the mini-stadium entrance tunnel was one of the main goals of their practice for Puppy Bowl XVIII on February 13.

“As soon as they get drafted for the Puppy Bowl, we work with them on the tunnel so they don’t get scared of it,” said Erika Proctor of Green Dogs Unleashed of Troy, who prepares Bunny, Glaze, Pongo and Ridley. for the 18th annual event. Ball-handling skills also matter, as puppies score points by carrying toys into the end zone for touchdowns or throwing them for field goals.

“All puppies should be 12 to 20 weeks old, so they use tiny little soccer balls,” Proctor said with a laugh.

Representing the Fluvanna County Rescue this year are Pongo the Dalmatian, Bunny the American pit bull terrier/American Staffordshire terrier mix, Glaze the chow chow/Alaskan malamute mix, and Ridley the border collie. They are among 118 puppies from 67 shelters and rescue organizations in 33 states who will compete in the playful competition at 2 p.m. Feb. 13 on Discovery+ and Animal Planet. The event, which encourages animal adoptions, includes dog cheerleaders, a raffle featuring Elmo and Tango from “Sesame Street”, a senior dog spotlight and a Kitty halftime show themed beach filled with playful kittens.

Three of the local pups are continuing a recent tradition of representing dogs with special needs on Team Ruff and Team Fluff. Bunny, Pongo and Ridley are deaf; Ridley also has limited vision.

“One of the reasons we strive to participate each year is to educate the public,” Proctor said. “When we started with Puppy Bowl, they didn’t accept puppies with special needs. When they started to see that these puppies could play and let off steam, they became more aware and became great supporters.”

Contestants with special needs have received a rousing reception from viewers, and heightened awareness over nearly a decade of Puppy Bowl performance has helped kick-start a series of life-saving changes. Just a few years ago, for example, the American Kennel Club’s breed standards for Dalmatians still recommended euthanizing deaf puppies.

“Not only do we have more adopters, but now we have breeders with deaf puppies who would have euthanized them and are looking to us for training,” Proctor said.

After Pongo’s Puppy Bowl appearance, he will continue training as a therapy dog ​​to brighten lives in nursing homes, hospitals, schools and other settings, demonstrating the potential a deaf dog has to lead a fulfilling life.

Pongo is getting a head start on that life in his new home, where he’s adored by his dog siblings and human family — and not above the occasional ear nibbling during puppy kisses.

“He’s really nice,” said Frankie Szynskie, Pongo’s adopter. “He’s the cuddliest dog I’ve ever met.”

Pongo is training hard at home for the big game. As soon as his family gets home from work, “he does laps all around our yard as fast as he can,” Szynskie said.

“He’s deaf, so we trained him to know his hand signals.”

The Dalmatian loads up on his favorite frozen carrots and raspberries — and stays hydrated. “Chewing little ice cubes is his favorite thing,” his owner said.

Szynskie said Pongo shows personality traits that will serve him well in his post-football therapy career.

“He’s just sweet and patient,” she said. “He loves meeting new people. He’s also deaf, so loud noises don’t really bother him.”

As Pongo, Bunny, Glaze and Ridley dream of grilling glory, they’ll have some big paw prints to fill on their way to the Lombardy trophy. Marshall, a high-octane Boston terrier from Green Dogs Unleashed, was last year’s Puppy Bowl MVP; he thrilled a national audience by scoring a rare double touchdown, carrying two toys into the end zone. Pongo’s family would like to see a rehearsal.

“We’re all keeping our fingers crossed – and our paws,” Szynskie said with a laugh.

The first episode of a series on the northern St. Lawrence River was televised earlier this month.

The six-part series, “The River: Living the St. Lawrence,” was created and executive produced by Waddington Town Supervisor Alex V. Hammond, Live at Five Show WATN-AM host Glenn Curry, and Josh Todd, originally from Heuvelton.

“It started when me and my National Guard buddy Josh were activated together for COVID in April 2020,” Mr. Hammond said. “We realized that we came from the same region and that we had the same love for the St. Lawrence River and the north of the country.

Mr. Todd has always had a fascination with the river and wanted to pass on his passion and love for it to others.

“I did a lot of personal research, but it stayed in a book at home,” Mr Todd said. “So I thought we would bring together people who had the same passion as me and spread it and show people what there is still to discover in the north of the country.

Along with Mr. Curry, the trio began putting together the series last summer.

“It’s like a video podcast where we put images to the words of two very good people, Josh Todd and Alex Hammond,” Mr. Curry said. “They know a lot about the river, they’re basically river rats. I worked as a producer and did a lot of things in the background, like getting photos that matched the discussion we’re talking about.

They signed up with the Watertown Public Broadcasting Service to air an episode every Wednesday at 7:30 p.m.

“We thought it would be a good thing for PBS to do because it’s very local and we thought the same type of people who watch PBS would like this type of show,” Mr Hammond said last week. . “The first night was last night and it will air for the next five weeks.”

“The River” includes episodes with Mr. Todd and Mr. Hammond sharing their experiences and memories of the river and features special guests.

“The first two episodes are just Josh and I talking about the river, and then we start bringing in special guests,” Mr. Hammond said. “Josh acquired a gentleman who was quite famous on Canadian radio and who lives on an island in the Brockville area. We brought in another woman and she talked about the islands and their names.

After filming and working on the series for most of the summer, the first episode aired on January 5 and will continue until February 9.

“Filming was fun,” Mr. Todd said. “It was new to me, it was like an interview process with three guys just sitting around talking about the river. It was uncharted territory for me, but it went pretty well.

Mr. Curry noted that the three hoped the series would become a permanent show.

“We’re trying to locate something that’s right at our feet,” Curry said. “Without the Seaway, world trade would not be what it is today. It’s an example of human journeys and human innovation and we haven’t talked about it enough, which is why we wanted to do a show dedicated to the river in our own backyard.

They all agreed that the series will bring new insights to those who live near or visit the river.

“The river means so much to our community on both sides of the border,” Curry said. “Nothing like this has ever been done before. There have been fishing shows, there have been tournaments, but it is a huge natural resource that has been neglected for too long. There are thousands of people who live on the river and thousands of people who visit it and would like to learn more about the river they live on.

Mr. Hammond echoed Mr. Curry’s point.

“It has lots of fun facts and really highlights why different people love the river,” Mr Hammond said. “This is our home. We hope it will take us out into the world and people who live here can learn more about this place, and people who don’t live here can also learn more.

Surely this woman has to take the cake as one of the dumbest politicians in human history.

A 27-year-old mother and former One Nation candidate for Logan’s seat in Queensland, Stephanie Banister has pulled out of the race after giving a hilarious and blundering interview to Channel 7.

Banister’s silly ramblings about Islam and Muslims in general – which included the confusion of the term haram [meaning forbidden] with the Qur’an as well as saying that Jews follow Christian teachings and Jesus – have earned him comparisons with Tea Party contestants Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann.

“I’m not against Islam as a country, but I think their laws shouldn’t be welcome here in Australia,” Banister said.

“Less than 2% of Australians follow haram. Jews are not Haram. They have their own religion that follows Jesus Christ.

What a flippin ‘truncheon!

Banister was running as a candidate for the conservative and right-wing One Nation party, which had given her “full support”.

Even dropping the election, Banister still managed to pass herself off as an absolute idiot. She basically accused Channel 7 of editing the footage to make its comments dumber than they actually were.

“With the way Channel Seven edited my interview, I was completely dumb,” Banister said in a statement.

“I would like to apologize to One Nation, my friends and family, for any embarrassment this has caused them.”

One Nation should really apologize to the rest of us for inflicting Stephanie Banister on this country in the first place.

The 27-year-old is also due in court for being involved in what Digital Spy called it an “anti-Muslim vandalism campaign”.

The ramp has apparently put on stickers saying “Watch out!” Halal Foods Fund Terrorism “on Nestlé products at its local Woolworths supermarket.

Japan’s Sony Group Corp’s new Bravia TV is set to be unveiled at the 2022 Consumer Electronics Show.

From manual control gestures to video calls, the sophisticated new TV is ready to wow consumers. It has an optional add-on for the rest of the range.

It has a unique feature of berating users for sitting too close thanks to its proximity alert. The Bravo Cam features “viewing distance compensation”, with settings to adjust voice and brightness.

The camera mounts on top of the TV and plugs into the USB port. It will automatically darken the television if it detects that no one is in the room.

The company is looking to harness its strengths in entertainment and sensors to play a larger role in next-generation mobility.

Sony president and chairman Kenichiro Yoshida said at a press conference, “With our imaging and sensing, cloud, 5G and entertainment technologies combined with our mastery of content, we believe Sony is well positioned as a creative entertainment company to redefine mobility. “

Although its once dominant position in consumer electronics has been eroded by Asian competitors like South Korean Samsung Electronics Co, Sony still has an arsenal of sophisticated technology in areas such as sensors essential for autonomous driving. .

It also remains one of the largest entertainment companies in the world, home to leading video game and movie franchises. Audio and entertainment systems are increasingly central to the concerns of new generation vehicles.

Police masquerade as UPS driver to make arrest after cocaine discovery in rotary television – Fall River Reporter https://carolchanning.org/police-masquerade-as-ups-driver-to-make-arrest-after-cocaine-discovery-in-rotary-television-fall-river-reporter/ Mon, 03 Jan 2022 18:48:22 +0000 https://carolchanning.org/police-masquerade-as-ups-driver-to-make-arrest-after-cocaine-discovery-in-rotary-television-fall-river-reporter/ A man has been taken into federal custody for allegedly conspiring to take possession of more than a kilogram of cocaine shipped from Colombia and packaged in an old model tube television.

A man has been taken into federal custody for allegedly conspiring to take possession of more than a kilogram of cocaine shipped from Colombia and packaged in an old model tube television.

Jomar Cruz-Aponte, 25, of Pawtucket, is charged in connection with a federal criminal complaint of conspiracy to possess 500 grams or more of cocaine with intent to distribute.

It is alleged in prosecution documents that on December 22, 2021, for the second time in nine days, U.S. Customs and Border Protection intercepted a package shipped to Rhode Island from Columbia, showing itself to contain a “Old television set of no commercial value”. The first package, addressed to a residence in Central Falls, contained an old rotary television with 300 grams of cocaine stored inside. The second package, intended for delivery by UPS to a residence in Pawtucket, contained a second model tube TV containing 1093 grams of cocaine stored inside.

On December 29, 2021, after removing the cocaine from the second TV, Homeland Security Investigations coordinated a supervised delivery of the package with the Pawtucket Police Department. An undercover police officer from Pawtucket, posing as a UPS driver, delivered the package to the front of the residence. A female retrieved the package and then quickly put it back on the steps. Shortly afterwards, Cruz would have been observed by members of the security forces walking in the neighborhood at the same time as a vehicle was slowly crossing the neighborhood. Later, Cruz approached the front of the residence from the backyard, retrieved the package and returned to the rear of the property to a nearby street where he got into the vehicle seen earlier by law enforcement. Pawtucket officers observed the vehicle leaving the area and, after brief surveillance, brought the car to a stop. Cruz would have quickly opened the passenger door and rushed out of the vehicle, the package in hand. He then allegedly threw the package on the ground and attempted to escape, but was unable to do so due to the heavy police presence.

A criminal complaint is only an accusation. An accused is presumed innocent until proven guilty.

The case is being pursued by Assistant US Attorney William J. Ferland.
