Millennial Loteria is the Perfect Blend of Nostalgia and Celebration of Inclusivity!

Published

on


From “El Catrin” and “La Chalupa” to “La Dama” and “la Sirena,” it’s all part of Millennial Lotería! It’s a new twist on the beloved game known as Mexican bingo. The traditional game is a source of nostalgia for generations of children that continues into adulthood. Founder of Millennial Loteria, Mike Alfaro, has taken an old favorite multi-generational game — played by millions worldwide — and created a version that better reflects the Latinx generation. This new version has the same tongue-in-cheek approach with each card being a parody of millennial life in the United States, and a celebration of inclusiveness.

HOUSTON, Texas — A Houston rapper has been charged with sex trafficking.

Authorities say Aryion Jackson is charged with aggravated promotion of prostitution.

Prosecutors say the 21-year-old housed up to 12 girls and women inside a northeast Houston home.

Jackson has a lengthy criminal record. He was arrested on an unrelated charge in Jefferson County.

KTRK-TV found a sample of his music on Soundcloud and video of him rapping on his Instagram account.

It’s the same account that’s part of a lengthy charging document in which Jackson is accused of forcing girls into prostitution.

The women would work a strip of road along Bissonnet in Houston, selling their bodies for anywhere from $100 to $300 per act. One woman alleges Jackson ordered them to bring in $1,000 a day or face consequences. One of the girls was as young as 14 years old.

One woman claims he pulled a gun on her at this recording studio and threatened to shoot her if she didn’t do as he told her.

He is currently being held in the Jefferson County Jail.

Victims in Deadly Orland Park Hit-and-Run Were Teachers Leaving Staff Christmas Party

The two women struck by a car in an Orland Park parking lot Wednesday night, leaving one dead and the other injured, were teachers leaving their staff Christmas party at the time they were hit, the school’s principal said.

At around 8 p.m., the two women were walking out of the Square Celt Restaurant, located at 39 Orland Square Drive at the Orland Park Mall, when they were hit by a vehicle that fled the scene, according to a statement from Orland Park police.

The women were taken to Silver Cross Hospital where one of the victims, a 61-year-old woman, was pronounced dead, authorities said. The other victim, a 54-year-old woman, was hospitalized in serious condition, according to police.

Principal Paul Smith, of St. Michael School in Orland Park, said early Thursday that the women were teachers at the school, leaving the staff holiday party when they were struck. He identified the teacher killed as Ms. Rone Leja, a technology instructor who had been at the school for about a year-and-a-half.

School officials said Thursday that the teacher who was injured in the hit-and-run had been released from the hospital and was recovering at home.

“It’s a very hard hit for us,” Smith told reporters, adding that both teachers were “beloved” in the community. “Ms. Leja was very important, worked closely with the students and their technology needs and our teachers as well.”

Smith said St. Michael School would be in session Thursday to allow the community to grieve together, holding a special prayer service.

“It’s hit our entire parish very hard, so we wanted to have school today to gather as a family, share our thoughts and pray together,” Smith said.

Smith said the two teachers left together and that he was unclear on how much time had passed before an employee of the restaurant found them outside and called paramedics.

“I think it’s hard for even the adults to understand why this happened and why this would happen to someone who’s so loving and so caring and dedicated their life to education,” Smith said, when asked how the school would explain the incident to its young students.

“I think it’s something we as a parish need to work together and to resolve and to work through. Our parish priest will be wonderful in helping us through that,” he added.

A statement from the Archdiocese of Chicago said the school would have a 9 a.m. start to allow faculty to gather privately to grieve their “dear friend and colleague” before school opens. 

Police said they are searching for the vehicle involved in the incident, but did not release any information on the car or driver.

“If you are driver of that vehicle, we WILL find you,” Orland Park police posted on Facebook. “You can turn yourself in at the Orland Park Police Department or call us and we will provide the transportation.”

Anyone with information on the incident was asked to contact police at 708-349-4111 or by emailing crimetips@orlandpark.org.
