A woman found lifeless in a bedroom of her San Gabriel home appeared to have been "assaulted and asphyxiated," authorities said Wednesday. The 45-year-old woman was found by authorities at about 5:30 p.m. Tuesday. Friends who were concerned because they had not heard from her for several days notified police after they went to check on her, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. When deputies went to her home in the 500 block of East Valley Boulevard, they found her body.  The sheriff's department said there was no sign of forced entry and the investigation was ongoing.

Chin Ho Liao, the second-highest vote-getter in last month's City Council election in San Gabriel, is suing the city after the incumbent council refused to seat him in order to investigate a resident's challenge of his residency.  Five candidates ran for three seats in the hotly contested March 5 election. Liao, Jason Pu and incumbent Mayor Kevin Sawkins garnered the most votes. Incumbents Mario De La Torre and David Gutierrez were defeated.  But resident Fred Paine filed a complaint accusing Liao of living outside the city limits.

The management company that runs a popular Hilton hotel in the heart of San Gabriel's Asian community agreed Wednesday to pay $500,000 to settle two lawsuits filed by former Latino workers alleging racial discrimination and sexual harassment. When Landwin Management Inc. took over management of the hotel in 2005, some Latino banquet servers were fired and replaced with less qualified Chinese workers, according to attorneys at the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, which represented about two dozen former Hilton employees in the case.

From the outside, they looked like other recently built San Gabriel townhouses ? two stories, Spanish style, with roofs of red tile. Inside they were maternity centers for Chinese women willing to pay handsomely to travel here to give birth to American citizens. Southern California has become a hub of so-called birthing tourism. Operators of such centers tend to try to blend in, attracting as little attention as possible. But on quiet, residential Palm Avenue, neighbors had noticed an unusual number of pregnant women going in and out, and some complained about noise.

The City Council, asked by the mayor of neighboring Alhambra to confirm San Gabriel's support of the proposed extension of the 710 Freeway through South Pasadena, unanimously endorsed the project Tuesday. The resolution updated the city's approval, last given by council vote in 1983. Councilwoman Mary Cammarano said completion of the freeway would improve traffic flow in San Gabriel and would reduce response time required by the Fire Department during rush hours.

Five months have passed since the elections! San Gabriel city seems to be slowly listing! It appears to this observer that Greg O'Sullivan, chairman of Citizens for Responsible Development, seems to be manipulating some of the council members.
