La Clinica Wellness Center Opens

Medford --

La Clinica's 17th health center opened this week. This includes its mobile health center and nine school-based clinics. The clinic said it has expanded based on need and can offer service to 3,000 more patients.

Carolina Castaneda Del Rio is a program director with the center. She said people are already showing interest.

"Even before opening, opening the doors, we were receiving people saying like "when are you opening?" So people are really excited about what are the offerings for the wellness center," Castaneda Del Rio said.

The clinic will also have classes like zumba and yoga. La Clinica did a study to determine where to open this wellness center. They said the location was picked based on the homeless population and income of the area.

Man and officer wounded, dog killed in police address mix-up

ATLANTA (AP) — A man shot by police officers who went to the wrong Atlanta house ran bleeding outside where a neighbor heard him asking, "Why did they come in my house? Why did they shoot me? Why did they shoot my dog?"

It happened Monday night when officers arrived at the wrong Atlanta address after a report of suspicious activity, shot homeowner Christopher McKinley, killed his dog and "likely" shot a fellow officer, leaving him seriously wounded, authorities said Tuesday.

The bloody misunderstanding began when DeKalb County police received a report of a possible burglary at a one-story residence near an intersection in southeast Atlanta. Lacking an exact address, the officers were sent in the dark to a neighborhood where many of the single-story homes look similar.

Three officers found a home they thought matched a description provided by a 911 caller, but were unable to make contact with anyone inside, according to a statement from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. They entered the home through an unlocked rear door and two officers fired their guns at a dog, killing it.

McKinley, 36, was also shot in the leg by police, GBI officials said. Officer Travis Jones was shot in the hip and listed in serious condition at Grady Memorial Hospital. The GBI released the names of the two wounded men Tuesday evening.

"Early investigation indicates that the injured officer was likely shot accidentally by one of the other officers on the scene," GBI officials said in a statement.

However, GBI spokesman Scott Dutton said it was too early to determine exactly who fired the gunshots. Dutton said he did not know if anyone in the home was armed besides the police. GBI officials said there is no evidence residents there had committed any crimes.

McKinley returned home early Tuesday, limping and wearing hospital scrubs, but declined to comment.

Tama Colson, who lives two doors down from the home where the shooting erupted, said she was coming home from a walk when she saw police cars speed past and soon heard a series of gunshots.

Colson told The Associated Press that as she rounded the corner, she saw her wounded neighbor and his wife fleeing their home. McKinley's wife was screaming, Colson said, and he was yelling: "They shot me and they shot my dog!"

Colson said her neighbor had a bullet wound a couple of inches above his right knee.

She said she knelt beside him in the yard and used a shirt to staunch the bleeding as he told her what happened.

"He told me they were in the house watching television when they heard something in the backyard," Colson said. "The husband gets up to check, opens the door and he just sees shooting. He gets hit and his dog is dead."

She said police never questioned McKinley while she was there helping him.

Derek Perez told The AP that he reported the suspicious person, but at a different house than the one police entered. He said he was walking his dog when he saw a man knock on a neighbor's door and then just stand in the yard. He said he then heard a loud noise, a dog barking and didn't see the man anymore. There had been break-ins in the neighborhood recently, so he called 911, he said.

Bob Gilman, who lives nearby, said he heard police sirens Monday night, went outside and saw his neighbor sitting on the driveway, wounded. Gilman said police officers escorted him away before he could ask what had happened. He was stunned that officers had opened fire.

"If they say they had the wrong address, that's very frightening," Gilman said.

The wounded man's dog, a brindle boxer, was large, playful and would run up to people. Gilman said the dog never attacked others. The wounded man's home had been hit by previous break-ins, and the man told Gilman that he owned a shotgun and a handgun.

DeKalb County Police Chief Cedric Alexander said his agency would normally investigate a non-fatal shooting. But given the complicated circumstances, he said he asked the GBI to lead the probe involving his own officers' actions.

Alexander acknowledged Monday night that DeKalb officers responded to the wrong home. All three officers — identified by the GBI as Jones, Quhanna Lloyd and Timothy Harden — have been placed on administrative leave.

Police officers have mistakenly forced their way inside homes before in Atlanta, at least once with deadly consequences.

In 2006, Atlanta police officers killed a 92-year-old woman during a botched drug raid at her house.

USOC endorses Los Angeles for 2024 Olympics bid

MICHAEL R. BLOOD, Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The U.S. Olympic Committee on Tuesday named Los Angeles as its candidate for the 2024 Games, replacing Boston's soured bid and marking a comeback for LA's dream of becoming a three-time Olympic host.

The announcement by USOC CEO Scott Blackmun came under a summer sun at Santa Monica Beach, where the city's plan calls for staging beach volleyball on the site where the sport was founded.

"I want to thank Los Angeles for standing up, once again, as America's bid city," Blackmun said, adding that LA's proposal squares with the Olympic movement's goals of watching the bottom line while investing in projects that dovetail with community needs.

Mayor Eric Garcetti said the city was inspired to bring the games back to the U.S. for the first time in 28 years.

"This is a quest that Los Angeles was made for," the mayor said. "This city is the world's greatest stage."

Earlier Tuesday, the Los Angeles City Council cleared the way for Garcetti to strike agreements for a 2024 bid. The 15-0 vote came about a month after Boston was dropped from contention amid shaky public support and questions about taxpayer spending and liability.

Garcetti has said Los Angeles, home to the Olympics in 1932 and 1984, would stage games that are both spectacular and profitable.

The city's selection as the U.S. nominee marks the start of a two-year competition. The International Olympic Committee will pick the host city in September 2017, and Rome, Paris, Hamburg, Germany, and Budapest, Hungary, are also in pursuit of the 2024 Games.

"The focus needs to be on convincing the 55 or so IOC members that Los Angeles is the best city to host the Olympics. That process starts immediately," USOC Chairman Larry Probst told reporters in a conference call.

A key issue has been whether approval of the resolution by the City Council would saddle Los Angeles with potential cost overruns for an event that historically runs over budget. Council members were assured repeatedly that the approval starts a negotiation with Olympic officials and does not commit taxpayers to future spending to stage the Games.

"This is the engagement, not the wedding," Council President Herb Wesson said.

The city's 2024 plan, which outlines over $6 billion in public and private spending, calls for staging events from volleyball on Santa Monica Beach to mountain biking in Griffith Park, one of the nation's largest urban green spaces. As was the case in 1932 and 1984, the Memorial Coliseum would serve as the centerpiece of the games.

A so-called host city contract, which essentially sticks the city and state — not the IOC — with the burden of any cost overruns, became an obstacle in Boston.

For Los Angeles, negotiating and striking a host city contract would come later, if the city is selected to stage the 2024 Games. For now, that temporarily pushes aside looming questions about costs.

"We are in this to win it, and I think we will," said Councilman Paul Krekorian. "We can't do that at the risk of exposure to our taxpayers."

Over the years, the Olympics have been notorious for cost overruns, and studies have questioned whether host cities benefit economically. Russia has been struggling with costs from the 2014 Sochi Olympics, which have been called the most expensive Olympics of all time.

Many financial details of the Los Angeles plan remain vague.

The bid calls for building a $1 billion athletes village on a rail yard the city doesn't own, and government analysts have warned that developing the site could significantly exceed the projected cost.

A private developer would invest most of the $925 million to build the village, but who would build the site, how the company would be selected and what type of financing would be used is unclear. The plan refers to necessary environmental and planning studies, but no cost estimates are given.

City analysts last week said they didn't have enough information to verify the overall 2024 budget or determine the financial risk.

The IOC had set a Sept. 15 deadline for cities to enter the race for the 2024 Games.

The U.S. hasn't hosted the Summer Games since 1996 in Atlanta.

The selection of Los Angeles ends an awkward period for the USOC, after it booted Boston when public and political support faded.

LA quickly became the fallback position, thanks to several existing venues and a mayor who remained enthusiastic despite being passed over for Boston.

Probst has predicted the turmoil regarding Boston will be forgotten by the time the IOC votes.

Senate leader: Not enough votes to defund Planned Parenthood

ALAN FRAM, Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate's top Republican is conceding that his party will have to await the next president before it can cut off federal funds that go to Planned Parenthood, prompting heated rebuffs from conservatives.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., says Republicans lack the votes to halt the payments. He also says that standing in the GOP's way is President Barack Obama, who doesn't leave office until January 2017.

"The way you make a law in this country, the Congress has to pass it, the president has to sign it," McConnell said in an interview with Kentucky TV station WYMT recorded Monday.

"The president's made it very clear he's not going to sign any bill that includes defunding of Planned Parenthood," McConnell said. "So that's another issue that awaits a new president, hopefully with a different point of view about Planned Parenthood."

The majority leader's remarks drew angry responses from some conservatives, who have chided GOP leaders before for not being more confrontational with Obama.

"Senate leadership first told us we needed the majority before we could act on conservative principles," said Phil Novack, spokesman for Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, a presidential candidate who this summer accused McConnell of lying. "But now it appears that they are making yet another excuse for a failure to act on our promises."

Rep. Mick Mulvaney, R-S.C., who has been gathering signatures on a letter from lawmakers promising to oppose spending legislation this fall if it includes money for Planned Parenthood, likened McConnell's comments to waving "a white flag." Mulvaney said GOP senators should consider replacing their leader.

"Tell me the difference between Mitch McConnell and Harry Reid," Mulvaney said in an interview, referring to the Senate Democratic leader from Nevada.

Mulvaney, who collected 18 signatures on the letter before the House left for a summer recess in July, said he did not know how many additional lawmakers have signed the letter.

"McConnell is useless," Brent Bozell, chairman of the conservative group ForAmerica, wrote on Twitter. "He won't fight for a damn thing and then whines he doesn't have the votes. Why, exactly, is he there?"

Federal agencies run out of money Oct. 1 unless Congress sends Obama legislation financing them. A stalemate would lead to a government shutdown, which McConnell has repeatedly said will not occur. Congress returns next week from a summer recess.

Shortly before leaving on its break, the Senate fell six votes short of advancing legislation that would have blocked Planned Parenthood's federal money. The organization receives over $500 million annually in government financing, which includes money from states.

The GOP effort to block Planned Parenthood's funds was triggered by videos, secretly recorded by anti-abortion activists, showing the organization's officials discussing their provision of tissue from aborted fetuses to researchers.

"The real question is can McConnell convince the rest of Congress to not hold the federal government hostage as a few politicians try to score cheap political points by cutting health care for millions," said Dawn Laguens, executive vice president of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, the group's political arm.
