HAMILTON Cast Members To Join Coast Guard In Honoring Founder Alexander Hamilton

As part of Fleet Week New York, the crew of the Coast Guard Cutter Hamilton[1] will honor Coast Guard founder, Alexander Hamilton[2], and the namesake of their vessel, with a wreath laying ceremony at his grave, on the grounds of Trinity Church, Friday. Also in attendance will be cast members of the esteemed Broadway musical, Hamilton[3]. The wreath presentation will be by the U.S. Coast Guard Silent Drill Team. The National Anthem will be preformed by Coast Guard Auxiliary Member, professional musician and bugler, Lou DiLeo. Invocation and benediction will be given by Mother Miles of Trinity Church. Alexander Hamilton[4]‘s humble beginnings began in New York City where he attended King’s College, now Columbia University. Hamilton[5] was General George Washington’s military aide de camp during the Revolutionary War and commanded the pivotal battalion charge at Yorktown forcing the British to surrender, effectively ending the war. In 1789, Hamilton[6] became Secretary of Treasury and crafted the effort to create the Revenue Cutter Service, which later became the modem day U.S. Coast Guard, much of which he accomplished while living in New York City.

Each of the Coast Guard’s National Security Cutters are “Legend Class” cutters honoring a person who was pivotal in making the Coast Guard the service it is today. U.S. Coast Guard Cuter Hamilton[7] (WMSL 753) is the fourth Legend Class cutter and the sixth Coast Guard Cutter to bear Alexander Hamilton[8]‘s name.

The cutter Hamilton[9] is a 418-foot National Security cutter homeported in Charleston, South Carolina. This week CGC Hamilton[10] made her inaugural voyage to New York City, as a part of Fleet Week festivities. USCGC Hamilton[11] will be moored at Pier 92 in Manhattan for Fleet Week, Wednesday 24 May to Wednesday, 31 May and is open for tours daily from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

ABQ driver faces wrongful death suit

………. ………. ………. ………. ………. ………. ………. ………. ………. ………. ………. ………. ………. ………. ………. ………. ………. ……….

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. The Albuquerque man accused of running down and killing a person who he believed had taken his stereo is now named in a civil wrongful death lawsuit involving the same incident.

Christopher Pino, 51, was indicted Monday on charges including second-degree murder, leaving the scene of a crash and aggravated assault. Police say Pino saw two men carrying a stereo he thought was his and hit one of them with his Hummer near Solano and Silver. Daniel Arballo died later in a local hospital. Last week, an attorney acting as the personal representative of Arballo s estate filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Pino. The lawsuit seeks damages and other relief.

Christopher Pino should be punished for his disregard for the life and safety of people in New Mexico, the lawsuit filed in state District Court in Santa Fe argues. It is not clear who is representing him in the civil case. According to a criminal complaint, a witness described watching the Hummer hit one person, sending him flying before reversing and going after the second person. The driver, the witness told police, was shouting threats.

You re going to be killed, I m going to kill you, you stole from me, the witness, a security guard at a nearby business, said describing what he heard.

Pino told police he only wanted to knock the men down so that he could detain them until police arrived.

He said he s been dealing with property crime, and wanted the men arrested to send a message to others to leave the property alone.
