    MORELOS, Mexico — A 13-year-old Mexican drug cartel hitman was found dead along with five other people. Univision reports that Jorge Armando Moreno’s body showed signs of torture when he was found near the town of Morelos. Moreno — who was a member of the Los Zetas gang — was arrested earlier this month, along with 15 other suspects, and confessed to taking part in 10 executions. He was released into his family’s custody because he was too young to be criminally prosecuted. Zacatecas state law says no one under the age of 14 can be subject to criminal prosecution....

    Chicago First Ward Report ^ | 9.25.12 | Alderman Moreno
    Dan Cathy decided to make a PUBLIC statement to Mike Huckabee that, at the least, muddied the progress we had made with Chick-fil-A and, at the worst, contradicted the documents and promises Chick-fil-A made to me and the community earlier this month. Since Mr.Cathy made a PUBLIC statement, I am PUBLICLY asking him to confirm and support what I was told and shown by his company representatives. 1. For the FIRST TIME in the company’s history the company wrote and distributed a document to all of its employees titled, “Chick-fil-A: Who We Are” that guarantees that the company and its...

    A Chicago alderman says Chick-fil-A's president is publicly contradicting what company executives personally assured him for months -- that the fast-food chain is changing its stance on gay marriage -- and he asked the company Sunday to clarify. Alderman Joe Moreno made news last week when he announced Chick-fil-A has ceased making donations to anti-gay groups and has enacted workplace protections for its employees against discrimination. Moreno said the two concessions were the result of 10 months of negotiations he had with Chick-fil-A executives as he weighed whether to support a new Chick-fil-A restaurant in his Chicago ward. He said...

    Chicago alderman who made national headlines during the summer for opposing a Chick-fil-A in his increasingly trendy Northwest Side ward has reversed course, saying he will let the fast-food chain open a store in Logan Square. Ald. Proco "Joe" Moreno, 1st, said the restaurant has agreed to include a statement of respect for all sexual orientations in an internal document and promised that its not-for-profit arm would not contribute money to groups that oppose gay marriage. Though Moreno said he scored a "big win," the company made nearly identical pledges in a July 19 Facebook post that went up even...

    Moreno tries to block restaurant that opposes gay marriage from opening in his Northwest Side ward A Chicago alderman wants to kill Chick-fil-A's plans to build a restaurant in his increasingly trendy Northwest Side ward because the fast-food chain's top executive vocally opposes gay marriage. Ald.Proco "Joe" Moreno announced this week that he will block Chick-fil-A's effort to build its second Chicago store, which would be in the Logan Square neighborhood, following company President Dan Cathy's remarks last week that he was "guilty as charged" for supporting the biblical definition of marriage as between a man and woman.

    Just days after his inauguration, new Gov. Jerry Brown has a quick opportunity to dust off his once controversial judge-picking skills and name a justice to one of the most influential state Supreme Courts in the country. California Supreme Court Justice Carlos Moreno, the sole Democrat and Latino on the state's high court, submitted his letter of resignation to Brown this week, informing the governor he would retire from the court on Feb. 28. Moreno's resignation is expected to place pressure on the governor to either replace him with another Latino, or choose an African-American justice on a court without...

The NYPD's Internal Affairs Bureau is investigating a claim that the patrolman raped an intoxicated business executive after the cop and his partner responded to a cabdriver's 911 plea for help with his drunken passenger, the sources said....

    The prognosis seems dire for Bishop-emeritus Manuel Moreno of Tucson, who had emergency surgery on Tuesday after a cereberal hemorrhage:Moreno's condition has worsened and family members, after consulting with his doctors, have decided not to continue further medical treatment. That news comes from Moreno's successor, Roman Catholic Diocese of Tucson Bishop Gerald Kicanas, who was traveling to Phoenix this afternoon to be with him. Moreno on Monday night had surgery in Phoenix to relieve pressure on his brain caused by bleeding, and that had resulted in some relief, said diocese spokesman Fred Allison. But the bleeding returned two nights...

    When you're governor of California and need a boatload of cash in less than 80 days, you're going to be hanging out with some pretty wealthy people. Like Rick Cronk, who paid $1 million for Dreyer's Ice Cream in 1977 and merged it with Nestle three years ago in a deal reportedly worth $2.4 billion. He and his wife, Janet, are hosts for a fundraiser for Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger in the East Bay on Sept. 28. Or Arte Moreno, owner of the Los Angeles Angels, who is throwing a Schwarzenegger fundraiser at the team's game in Anaheim on Tuesday night...

    Henry Samueli and Arturo “Arte” Moreno have a few things in common. They’re both billionaires, Republicans and Orange County pro sports team owners. Moreno is a fourth-generation American of Mexican descent. He served in Vietnam right after high school and returned to earn a degree from the University of Arizona. Samueli’s parents survived the Holocaust and emigrated from Poland to the U.S. in 1950. After settling in Buffalo, the family moved to West Hollywood when Samueli was a boy. He later earned three degrees from the University of California, Los Angeles. The Samuelis have made more than $150 million in...

    Just Say No To Justice Kathryn Werdegar Date: Wednesday, October 16 @ 13:47:28 EDT October 14, 2002 Anaheim, California — Officials from Traditional Values Coalition today urged California families not to support California Supreme Court Justice Kathryn Werdegar in her re-confirmation bid this November and have announced their plans to lead a statewide effort exposing her record on the bench.  Citing recent rulings, Rev.
