College kids are a noteworthy economic force for a campus and its surrounding community — both good and bad. Ponder a recent Census Bureau report that shows how coed’s off-campus living boosts local poverty rates. When the census compiles the traditional poverty rate, it tabulates those among the civilian population living on less than poverty incomes. They are older than 15 and not “institutionalized” — those...

It didn’t take long for Kevin Patrick Kirkland to single out the 15-year-old girl, a student in his freshman math class at Redlands High School.

Suffering serious health problems and learning disabilities including fetal alcohol syndrome and dyslexia, she began her freshman year at Redlands High School in August 2013. Soci...

10 years of change: What new census says about 20 Southern California cities

When it comes to hip, prolific modern novelist Haruki Murakami, we might say the author himself may not exist without his soundtracks, and they are sprawling and extensive. Murakami, who is well known for his intense focus and heroic achievements as a marathon and double-marathon runner, exceeds...
