Charles Manson's random ties to musicians, actors in Hollywood

Cameramen film the scene as Charles Manson is brought into the Los Angeles city jail under suspicion of having masterminded the Tate-LaBianca murders of August 1969. LOS ANGELES - Before Charles Manson became infamous as a disturbed cult leader who dispatched young followers on a killing rampage, his life in Los Angeles and failed musical aspirations led him to encounter many well-known celebrities. Manson was a petty criminal who had been in and out of jail since childhood.

He arrived in Los Angeles in 1967, and having learned to play guitar in prison, he desperately sought out the attention of the music scene and a record deal, Rolling Stone explained in 2016 in a profile about his music.Over the course of a year and a half, Manson crossed paths with several in the music industry, including members of the Beach Boys, producer Terry Melcher, and even Neil Young. During this time, he also reinvented himself as a guru-philosopher-type who targeted teenage runaways and other lost souls, particularly attractive young women he used and bartered to others for sex.Dennis Wilson from The Beach Boys posed in Amsterdam, Netherlands on Jan. 1, 1971 (Photo by Gijsbert Hanekroot/Redferns) Dennis Wilson, who co-founded The Beach Boys as a drummer and backing vocals, was driving through Malibu, California, in 1968 when he picked up two hitchhikers, Ella Jo Bailey and Patricia Krenwinkel, according to the website, an information website about the Manson Family. Wilson later noticed the same girls hitchhiking again and took them to his home on Sunset Boulevard in the Pacific Palisades, near Will Rogers State Park.

'We are global changers': Imhotep Institute Charter students solve real world problems with technology
EAST GERMANTOWN - Students at Imhotep Charter High School are changing lives through their stem program. Through the use of 3D printers, they are bringing clean water everywhere from Mississippi to Ghana."I am one of the first people in my family to be doing something this big," student JaNiece Watters said.Five months ago, STEM ambassadors from Imhotep Institute Charter High School traveled to Jackson, Mississippi to aid in the city’s water crisis.RELATED COVERAGE:Student Musa Wilson stated, "Knowing that we changed lives down in Jackson, Mississippi is really monumental for us, especially as young, Black kids."Now the students will be taking 3D printed water filters overseas to a town in Ghana, called Kheta, where the water can’t even be used to wash hands."We’re going to be helping over 3,000 students across 10 different schools in Ghana," Watters continued.From water filter design and 3D printing, to product testing and research, each of the students has a fundamental role in the life-changing project."We’re trying to produce 200 and it probably takes around seven to eight hours to make one, so we’re getting ahead early," student Cyril Woodland said.Shirley Posey is the director of STEM at Imhotep and says being proud is an understatement."We’re trying to cultivate our scholars to be critical thinkers, to be problem solvers.
