What does the yellow tier mean for Disneyland?

Disneyland and Disney California Adventure can raise attendance capacity to 35% now that Orange County has moved into the least restrictive yellow tier of the state’s COVID-19 health and safety guidelines.

How Disneyland changed Rise of the Resistance because of the pandemic

Riding Rise of the Resistance has changed now that Disneyland has removed experiences to make the wildly popular Star Wars attraction shorter, installed safety measures to keep riders socially distanced and tweaked the virtual queue system to spread out demand. Disneyland was forced to modify the Rise of the Resistance attraction in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge under state COVID-19 health and safety rules governing indoor rides when the Anaheim theme park reopened after a 13-month coronavirus closur...

Shohei Ohtani homers, Mike Trout injured in Angels’ victory

ANAHEIM ― The Angels lost one of their superstars to an injury Monday night. Their other superstar picked him up. Mike Trout strained his right calf running the bases before Shohei Ohtani hit a thunderous three-run home run in the Angels’ 7-4 win over the Cleveland Indians. Trout walked in his only plate appearance, advanced to second base on a wild pitch, and was stranded before limping off the field as the first inning ended. The 29-year-old center fielder missed three games in April with a sw...

Reliever Hunter Strickland fills the Angels’ need for speed

ANAHEIM — Hunter Strickland made his major league debut in 2014 as a Sept. 1 call-up with the San Francisco Giants. Within two months, he had a World Series ring. The last few seasons haven’t gone so smoothly for the Angels’ newest reliever. Strickland signed as a free agent with the Tampa Bay Rays on Feb. 2. On Saturday, less than three months later, he found himself traded to his sixth team in four years. “It’s definitely a transition but that’s part of the gig,” Strickland said. “Luckily I ha...

California man reunites with family after 2 years stuck in Mexico for admitting marijuana use

Nearly two years after he told the truth about having once smoked pot – a bit of honesty that left him stranded in Mexico, separated from his family, and blocked from re-entering the United States – a Southern California man walked back into his home last month and surprised his children. Emily, 7, was napping in the living room, so it took her a moment to realize that the man waking her up was her father, Jose Palomar. She threw her arms around him and cried. He cried too. Next, he went upstair...

A Different Feeling For The Minnesota Wild

from Chip Scoggins of the Star Tribune, The performance was a dud, to put it kindly. Sloppy mistakes, careless passing, no real focus. The Wild coughed up turnover after turnover against Anaheim — one of the two worst teams in the NHL — in a textbook case of playing down to the competition. It was a moment ripe for a letdown loss earlier this month in the final push of the regular season. Then the rookie sensation decided he'd had enough of that nonsense. Kirill Kaprizov s...

Dodgers’ Edwin Rios reflects on shoulder injury: ‘it just wasn’t getting better’

LOS ANGELES  ― Edwin Rios didn’t know how serious the pain in his right shoulder was until an MRI revealed the bad news: a partially torn labrum. On Wednesday, the Dodgers announced the 27-year-old infielder will undergo surgery, ending his season. Thus ended a frustrating couple months for Rios, who was a key contributor off the bench as the Dodgers ended their 32-year championship drought last year. His power stroke never returned after he reported to spring training, or for the first month of...

Source: Dodgers sign Albert Pujols to major-league contract

Albert Pujols didn’t have to wait very long, or move very far, to find his next destination in baseball. Nine days after being designated for assignment by the Angels, Pujols signed a major-league contract with the Dodgers. According to a source, the contract will be officially announced Monday. The Dodgers will pay Pujols only a prorated portion of the major-league minimum salary ($570,500), while the Angels will pick up the remainder of Pujols’ $30 million salary for the season. In 24 games wi...

Dodgers’ offense keeps rolling in win over Marlins

LOS ANGELES — The reboot seems to have worked. Emerging from their three-week freeze, the Dodgers’ offense rumbled to life once again, scoring eight times in the second inning and making it stand up to beat the Miami Marlins, 9-6, Friday night. The win was the Dodgers’ third in a row following a 5-15 stumble and fourth in their past five games. Over that five-game stretch, the Dodgers’ offense has produced 37 runs.

Disneyland teases Indiana Jones-themed bar for expansion project

Star Wars Celebration moves up dates for 2022 event at Anaheim Convention Center

The world’s biggest gathering of Star Wars fans set to return to Anaheim in August 2022 has been pushed forward a few months as convention centers begin to reemerge from pandemic closures and event dates get shuffled. The Star Wars Celebration will return to Anaheim Convention Center in 2022 on May 26-29 — more than two months earlier than expected. Lucasfilm initially announced last summer that the Star Wars Celebration would return to Anaheim in 2022 on Aug. 18-21. “We can’t wait to welcome fa...

Dodgers’ Edwin Rios to have season-ending shoulder surgery

LOS ANGELES — A shoulder injury will end Edwin Rios’ season. The Dodgers hope the same won’t be true for their top pitching prospect. Rios will undergo season-ending surgery next week to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder. Over 60 games in 2019 and 2020, Rios hit 12 home runs in just 123 at-bats. Coming into this season, the first baseman/third baseman was expected to provide power off the bench with Joc Pederson and Kiké Hernandez subtracted via free agency. But Rios struggled mightily,...

It shouldn’t be illegal to build housing without parking

Should local governments be able to force developers to build parking near transit? It would seem like an absurd question, if it wasn’t the law of the land: Across California, nearly every proposal to build near a bus stop or train station must come with acres of parking lots or towering parking garages. But a new bill winding its way through the California state legislature could soon change all that. Sponsored by Assemblymember Laura Friedman, Assembly Bill 1401 would prohibit cities from impo...

How ‘The Boo Crew’ podcast lured Elvira, Danny Elfman and Dita Von Teese into its secret studio

Down a quiet street in a suburban Burbank neighborhood, there’s a house that contains frightening secrets inside. If you’re thinking, this is how most horror movies begin, well, you’re right. Once through the front door, past the life-sized Harry Potter and Voldemort figures locked in battle and the five-foot snake statue from “Beetlejuice,” there’s a secret door — and inside there you’ll find the Speakeasy Studio where Trevor and Lauren Shand, along with friend Leone D’Antonio, record and produ...

Remembering a radio station that began in San Pedro nearly 100 years ago, and is still going

For obvious reasons, the very early broadcasting stations get all the love when it comes to radio trivia. KNX (1070 AM), KFI (640 AM) and KHJ (930 AM), for example, are all either celebrating, or are about to celebrate, a full century of broadcasting. Lost among the crowd, however, are other stations with unique histories. One such station is KTNQ (1020 AM) which actually has its genesis as a station broadcasting out of the port community of San Pedro. That’s right – San Pedro once had its very ...

Jamey Wright embarks on second career as Dodgers’ minor league pitching coach

The end of the road for Jamey Wright did not come with a cross-country retirement tour, or a ceremony, or even a televised press conference. It came when Yolmer Sanchez grounded out to second base to end a spring training game between the Dodgers and Chicago White Sox. Wright walked off the mound at Camelback Ranch, the box score crediting him with a save in a 5-4 win on March 26, 2016. That was it. His big league career was over. When he met with Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, Wright already kne...
