In 1949, toddler Kathy Fiscus fell down a San Marino well, launching the age of live TV news

In 1949, three-year-old Kathy Fiscus fell down an abandoned well in San Marino. The accident led to a weekend-long rescue effort that was broadcast live on local television and became national news. The ordeal would end tragically – by the time that rescuers were able to reach her, the little girl had died – and the event reshaped media, and American culture, in the process. USC professor William Deverell has long been fascinated by this story and that has resulted in his new book, “Kathy Fiscus...

No roses or floats or bands on Pasadena’s Colorado Boulevard this morning – but there’s hope

It’s Jan. 1, 2021, on Colorado Boulevard, and the ghosts of Rose Parades past are beckoning on a cold, crisp Friday morning. Close your eyes. Listen close, and there’s the faint echo of Bob Eubanks and Stephanie Edwards talking it up. The thunder of the Los Angeles Unified School District All District School Honor Band. The clip-clop strut of the Budweiser Clydesdales on the cold Pasadena asphalt. Eyes open. Reality: For the first time since World War II, there’s no Tournament of Roses Parade. ...

Community refrigerators in Southern California are a source of aid, activism and sometimes anxiety

The refrigerator in Carmen Perez’s garage has been collecting dust for the past four months. It was supposed to join a growing network of makeshift street pantries that have popped up across Southern California this year. But while Perez’s intentions were good, she has learned the refrigerators are not always well-received. “When I saw fridges showing up throughout Los Angeles, I knew this was something that was needed here, too,” said Perez, who along with her friend, Kimberley Burnett, launche...

Laid-off tech worker from Chino makes free desks for at-home students

For a student distance learning at home, having a desk for your computer and a place for storing textbooks and assignments can make a world of difference. But desks are nearly sold out in stores and online sites, with the highest priced models remaining. Even if they could locate desks for sale, many Southern California families low on cash due to job losses from the coronavirus shutdowns cannot afford them. Woodworker Chai Hansanuwat assembles a desk for a student Tuesday afternoon Sept. 29...

The Best Work I Saw at Photolucida: Part 5

  I made a new friend the other day. His name is Keith. He’s originally an East Coaster, like me, and now works as the security guard at the Harwood Museum of Art in Taos, where my “Party City is the Devil” show opens today. Last week, while I was installing, Keith hung around a bit, and we got to talking. As the show took many hours to put together, over three days, it allowed for quite a bit of chatter. In all honesty, when I first saw him, I did ask myself why he was the one protecting the jo...

Canyon Montclair opens Friday, April 5 with Vince Neil

The wood in the green room at the Canyon Montclair is scraped and worn, and there’s a reason. “These doors came from the House of Blues,” said Lance Sterling. Sterling is an entrepreneur who helped build the House of Blues chain of nightclubs and now has his own burgeoning empire of concert venues. It will grow by one in April, when the Canyon Montclair opens its doors to the public. The opening night headliner will be Vince Neil, front man of Mötley Crüe.

Rose Parade 2019: Bands from around the globe ready to march down Colorado Boulevard

Community service and helping others are hallmarks of many of the bands performing in the Rose Parade. Perhaps that’s best illustrated by the students from two communities (Mercer Island, Wash., and Pickerington, Ohio) who reached out to Banda Escolar de Guayanilla in Puerto Rico. In 2017, about two weeks after all three bands were selected for the 2019 Rose Parade, the island nation was devastated by back-to-back category 5 hurricanes. “A lot of families were having to decide whether they wante...

The Best Work I Saw at the LACP Exposure Portfolio Review

  Almost everything I write is available for free on the internet. There are a few exceptions, though. I’ve written essays for two of Alejandro Cartagena’s recent books, the companions: “Santa Barbara Return Jobs to US,” and “Santa Barbara Shame on US.” These are limited-edition, fine art books in which the photography was obviously the main draw. The only people who read those pieces bought the book, and then also took the time to read the insert. (Meaning, not everyone who bought the book. Let...

These flea markets are where Southern California shoppers come for deals

Marissa Felix was on the hunt for a child’s wicker chair. So on a Sunday at the Long Beach Antique Market, the 24-year-old Laguna Niguel woman asked longtime vendor Rachel Polk to keep an eye out for one. “You can’t do that at a store when you’re looking for vintage or things that you can’t buy new, but you can do it here,” Felix said. Call it a perk of shopping at flea markets. Every weekend there is a marketplace somewhere in Southern California where vendors unpack deals, take requests from s...

This is why rolled ice cream is the cool new dessert trend

One of the coolest food trends to hit Southern California recently is rolled ice cream.

Arroyo Seco Weekend 2018: Everything that happened on Saturday

The weather was pretty much perfect for the first day of Arroyo Seco Weekend at Brookside at the Rose Bowl. There was a cool breeze, sunshine and the new configuration of the grounds gave people a lot more elbow room than last year. But one of the coolest aspects of Arroyo Seco is that the thing that defines it isn’t just the music or the audience, but the sense of place. Pasadena has its thumbprints all over the fest. The festival itself is eclectic in the best way possible. There are little li...
