California’s recall circus begins with challenger saying he’s the ‘beast’ to Newsom’s ‘beauty’ — alongside 1,000-pound live bear

By Maeve Reston | CNN The Republican candidates challenging California Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom have struggled to capture voters’ attention as the state gears up for an all-but-certain recall election this year. So businessman John Cox switched up the script Tuesday by introducing himself as “the beast” to Newsom’s “beauty” alongside a live Kodiak bear at a Sacramento campaign event. The emergence of the 1,000-pound real-life bear, which sniffed the pavement and lumbered around behind Cox w...

California keeps millions in child support while parents drown in debt

Half of Stacy Estes’ pay disappears every month before it hits his bank account. Each check is about $500 lighter than it should be, intercepted in the name of child support — which he wouldn’t have a problem with, if it were going to his kids. Instead, only $225 goes to his children. The rest is garnished to repay government debt he began accruing more than two decades ago when he first got behind on child support payments. The 53-year-old Estes owes about $47,000 in child support debt, most of...

As drought hits California, long-term issues loom

By the time this column is published, Northern California may be receiving some much-needed rain, and possibly some snow. However, late-season precipitation does not change the reality that California is in one of its periodic droughts after two dry years. Major Northern California reservoirs are only about half-full due to scanty runoff from mountain snowpacks, farmers are getting tiny percentages of their normal water allotments, and local water agencies are beginning to impose restrictions on...

Newsom Declares April 24 ‘Day Of Remembrance’ In CA As Biden Recognizes Atrocities Against Armenians As Genocide

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP/CBS13) — The systematic killing and deportation of more than a million Armenians by Ottoman Empire forces in the early 20th century was “genocide,” the United States formally declared on Saturday, as President Joe Biden used that precise word after the White House had avoided it for decades for fear of alienating ally Turkey. California Gov. Gavin Newsom followed suit and declared April 24 as a “Day of Remembrance of the Armenian Genocide” in the state. “Today and ev...

The dark side of America’s ‘iron-clad’ alliance with Japan

Japan’s new Prime Minister, Yoshihide Suga, attended the first White House summit meeting of the Biden Administration.  Meant to be of great symbolic importance, as it highlights Japan’s standing as an ally, the meetings yielded up the usual bromides, including how this alliance is the “cornerstone” of regional and global peace and security. No doubt, Tokyo’s leader and chief diplomats could enjoy taking a victory lap, knowing they had bequeathed their own vision, the Indo-Pacific Strategy, upon...

Investigation clears Pasadena’s cannabis permitting process of bias

A probe into the city’s retail cannabis permitting process found no evidence that it was tilted to disadvantage applicants vying for the highly coveted right to operate in the area, according to city documents obtained this week. But it also suggested that the city’s Planning Department could have better communicated with businesses over a key requirement that fueled allegations of unfairness. At the core of the probe was whether city planning officials were influenced by a representative for on...

Gov. Newsom Seeks To Ban Fracking In California By 2024

SACRAMENTO (AP/CBS13) – Gov. Gavin Newsom said Friday he will halt all new fracking permits in California starting in 2024, using his executive authority to take on the state’s powerful oil and gas industry in a year he will likely face voters in a recall election. Fracking – short for hydraulic fracturing, the process of extracting oil and gas embedded in rock deep underground – accounts for a small portion of the state’s oil and gas production each year. But environmental advocates have long s...

California Senate Passes Bill For Supervised Sites For Drug Users

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP/CBS13) — Instead of putting opioid users in jail, a proposal moving through the California Legislature would give them a place to inject drugs under supervision to ensure they don’t die from accidental overdoses. The California Senate passed a bill on Thursday by just one vote that would allow the programs in two Bay Area cities – Oakland and San Francisco – as well as Los Angeles County. But the bill must still pass the state Assembly before it can go to Democratic Gov. G...

CA Bill To Reveal Names Of Recall Signers Won’t Move Ahead

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — A proposal to let California politicians targeted by recall efforts see who signed petitions to oust them will not move forward this year. State Sen. Josh Newman, a Democrat, said Tuesday he’s pulling the bill due to pressure from supporters of a likely recall election against Gov. Gavin Newsom, also a Democrat. Newman’s bill would not have applied to the anti-Newsom effort, but that movement’s supporters vehemently opposed it, saying it would violate citizen privacy an...

Bill To Help Laid-Off Workers Passed By California Legislature

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP/CBS13) — Now that Gov. Gavin Newsom is letting more businesses reopen as coronavirus cases decline, the California Legislature on Thursday passed a bill requiring some hotels and other hospitality companies to offer laid-off workers their jobs back. Hospitality companies were some of the hardest hit by the state’s stay-at-home order, with no people to stay in hotels while empty office buildings and deserted airports needed fewer janitors and food service workers.

Immigrant Health Care Is On California Senate’s Wish List

SACRAMENTO (AP) — Democrats in the California Senate said Wednesday they want to spend the state’s projected multibillion-dollar budget surplus on things such as making college debt-free for students, paying for the health care of some older, low-income adults living in the country illegally and partnering with first-time homebuyers in the state’s expensive market. The proposal from Senate Democrats, who hold 31 of the chamber’s 40 seats, stands as a rough draft of how the budget in the nation’s...

Wildfire threat likely to get worse, experts say

It’s no secret that the state’s wildfires are getting worse every year, but the big question is just how bad it’s going to get. Five of California’s six largest wildfires on record occurred in 2020 and nine of the 10 biggest ignited within the past decade. With California in the second year of drought, state officials are scurrying to shore up resilience efforts and firefighting capabilities. That emphasis on resilience, including a $536 million “early action plan” unveiled by Gov. Gavin Newsom ...
