Police response to Capitol mob ‘disheartening’ for communities of color in Southern California

A day after riotous supporters of President Donald Trump stormed the U.S. Capitol, shattering windows and forcing their way inside the building, local Black and Latino leaders and activists drew a stark contrast between the police response to the mostly White mob in Washington and the many Black Lives Matter protests led by people of color over the summer. Scenes from the Capitol Wednesday, Jan. 6, bore little resemblance to events that unfolded in San Bernardino in late May, said Rakayla Simpso...

How Southern California teachers explain U.S. Capitol riot

Even as custodians and workers clean up damage left after rioters invaded the U.S. Capitol building Wednesday, Jan. 6, there’s another mess, as teachers and other adults try to figure out how to explain the events to the country’s children. “It was hard yesterday,” said Elizabeth Ramos, choking up.

Woman thought to be last Civil War widow dies at 101

By Jim Salter | Associated Press O’FALLON, Mo. — Helen Viola Jackson’s 1936 marriage to James Bolin was unusual to say the least: He was 93 and in declining health, and she was a 17-year-old schoolgirl. Bolin was also a Civil War veteran who fought for the Union in the border state of Missouri. Jackson was almost certainly the last remaining widow of a Civil War soldier when she died Dec. 16 at a nursing home in Marshfield, Missouri. She was 101. Several Civil War heritage organizations have rec...
