Monday morning report, June 8

Five things to know this Monday morning: 

1.) Downey-born MMA fighter Dan Henderson needed only 28 seconds to dispose of middleweight Tim Boetsch at a UFC card Saturday night. 

"Obviously, I can't feel bad about that one," Henderson told MMAFighting.com. "It's nice when I say ‘I'm not done' and no one believes me, to actually come out and prove I'm not quite done yet."

Here's the full fight video: 


2.) Downey Lions Club members Cindy Kovach and Grisselle Chavez were honored with the Norwalk Community Coordinating Council's Keystone Award for community service yesterday. 

Kovach is the branch manager at U.S. Bank in Downey, and president-elect of the Downey Chamber of Commerce. 

Chavez is a former Norwalk city employee who came to Downey last year as Superintendent of Maintenance. 


3.) Greg Welch, a personal trainer and owner of Risher Mortuary, is leaving for Nepal today as part of a mission team from Calvary Chapel Downey. 

"We have been called to the village of Sikre where virtually every structure was destroyed by the recent earthquakes," Welch wrote in a public Facebook post. "I am asking you to please pray for our team and the good people of this impoverished land. The monsoon season is rapidly approaching so we will be moving quickly to help provide shelter. God bless!"


4.) Thousands appeared to enjoy the Downey Greek Festival over the weekend, including former NBA player Josh Childress.

5.) Tammy and Tim Smick, of Downey, have been enshrined in the Consumer Advocate Hall of Fame. 

The couple became hospital patient safety advocates after their 20-year-old son died from a lethal overdose administered by his medical providers.
