first_imgClayton’s sister, Valerie Askoty, says the money raised will help parents keep their children involved in sports when they otherwise may not be able to.“We’re starting a Clayton Askoty Youth Foundation, and it’s to raise funds for families that cannot afford to send their kids to sporting events,” Askoty explains. “We’re starting this foundation because my brother was an avid believer in getting the kids out there involved in sports and socializing.”Clayton Askoty passed away unexpectedly a year and a half ago, and the tournament is held in his memory because of the love he had for sports.- Advertisement -Valerie says her brother was someone who was very generous and often helped youth, without looking for recognition. “The one thing a lot of people do not know about him is… a lot of the families couldn’t afford to take their kids to see baseball tournaments and get involved in it, so he started his own team,” she says. “He took the kids out and drove them to Fort Nelson so they could be involved in tournaments, and that was one thing as his sister I didn’t even know until about a couple of months after he passed: that he was using his own money to take the kids out.”The family is hopeful to have the Clayton Askoty Youth Foundation up and running in six months time.

Carson deputy arrested in sting

first_imgCarlos, a deputy for seven years assigned to the Carson station, has a right to appeal. During his Internet chat, he arranged to meet the child “for the purposes of lewd or sexual acts,” Ishii said. Investigators did not know Carlos was a sheriff’s deputy until after his arrest, Ishii said. Carlos was arrested and released on bail. The Sheriff’s Department immediately placed him on paid administrative leave, Whitmore said. The District Attorney’s Office’s Justice System Integrity Division is reviewing the matter to determine whether charges will be filed. Whitmore said the Sheriff’s Department does not usually begin its own internal affairs investigations until the district attorney has filed criminal charges. Like any citizen, law enforcement officers are not required to talk with police investigators when suspected in a crime. They are, however, mandated to speak in internal investigations. Once Baca saw the video, however, he initiated the investigation, concluding it Thursday, Whitmore said. larry.altman@dailybreeze.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
