    Carpenters Local 1005 faces takeover by union - By Steve Walsh, Gary Post Tribune, IN
    Throughout the day Carpenters members walked past a line of sheriff's deputies, who stood outside the meeting room.

    Lake County Sheriff Roy Dominguez is a childhood friend of Hernandez. Local 1005 gave the sheriff upwards of $29,000 for his 2002 run for office, through a political action committee controlled by Hernandez.

    Lake County Police Chief Gary Martin said the 10 Lake County Sheriff deputies on hand for the hearing were being were used for security. All of the officers were off-duty.

    They were hired by a private security firm in New York that was hired by the International Brotherhood of Carpenters for the event. The firm called the Sheriff's Department in Crown Point.
