Focus on COVID might hamper state’s push against rising sea

The state will suffer dire long-term consequences if lawmakers set aside concerns about rising seas to focus solely on COVID-19, the non-partisan Legislative Analyst’s Office warned Monday. Sea level rise will likely put at least $8 billion in property underwater by 2050, and could affect tens of thousands of jobs and billions in gross domestic product, according to studies cited by the office. “Because the most severe effects of (sea level rise) likely will manifest decades in the future, takin...

Mysterious, unsolicited packets of seeds possibly from China are arriving in some Southern California mailboxes, prompting state officials to urge recipients to refrain from planting them. The California Department of Agriculture is aware of the packets and has been in contact with the US Department of Agriculture to determine what action, if any, is necessary for shipments arriving in California, spokesman Steve Lyle said Monday. “In the meantime, California Department of Agriculture is instruc...

What it was like to see Andrew McMahon perform a concert to socially distanced fans at Drive-In OC

“So, is it weird, or is it cool out there?” singer-songwriter Andrew McMahon asked the sold-out crowd at the official kick-off of City National Grove of Anaheim’s Drive-In OC Series Friday night. It was a little of both. There hasn’t been a full-fledged live concert experience in the area due to the spread of novel coronavirus since March. It was weird to experience a concert, drive-in style, with fans parked within individual tape-marked squares, but as soon as the music began there was an obvi...

The next big music festival you attend may be inside a video game

Rapper Travis Scott blazed through hits such as “Sicko Mode,” “Stargazing” and “Goosebumps” and new single “The Scotts” as Rachel Foy, 42, and her son Atticus, 11, took in the stunning visual effects and graphics of the performance. But the Ontario family wasn’t watching Scott as he performed from some massive, souped-up stage at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, but rather in a video game at home. Atticus is a fan of Fortnite and that’s where he and his mom watched Scott’s Astronomi...

Fourth of July: Beach and parking lot closures, big waves, rip currents could make for crazy holiday

Heading to the beach for the Fourth of the July holiday, a time-honored tradition for Southern Californians, will be complicated this year. Some beaches will be closed, some open, and others – like Orange County’s state-run beaches – are shutting down parking lots to try to curb the crowds. The closures and restrictions are meant to limit holiday weekend crowds at the coast, where people cram onto swaths of sand and fill in the streets to celebrate. But shutting down beaches is a complex issue, ...

Louise Goffin talks famous parents and finding her own place in the music world

The daughter of legendary songwriters Carole King and Gerry Goffin, Louise Goffin spent her childhood and adolescence in Laurel Canyon, the epicenter of the L.A. music scene in the late ’60s and ’70s. Her live debut came when she was 17, opening up for Jackson Browne in 1977 at the Troubadour in West Hollywood. Her first album “Kid Blue” arrived on the major label Elektra/Asylum in 1979 before she’d even turned 20. Yet while those early memories used to remind Goffin more of struggle and difficu...

‘I saw the devil today’: Prosecutors, family members confront Golden State Killer in plea agreement hearing

For seven hours Monday, family members of the dozens of victims of the Golden State Killer listened while he croaked out his guilty pleas. With a plastic visor covering his face, Joseph James DeAngelo Jr. — mouth agape, seated between his attorneys and dressed in an orange jail jumpsuit, sitting behind a table on top of a stage in the middle of a university ballroom — pleaded guilty to 13 murders and 13 kidnappings he committed over about 13 years across California. In case after case, DeAngelo,...

Golden State Killer agrees to plea deal for 13 murders, numerous rapes

A plea deal for the accused Golden State Killer, requiring he admit to a series of rapes and murders that terrorized residents across California in the 1970s and 1980s, brings justice to those who have waited decades for one of the state’s most notorious killers to be sentenced, a prosecutor told a judge on Monday. Joseph DeAngelo, a former police officer who was arrested in 2018 after authorities identified him through DNA, appeared before his surviving victims and the relatives of those he is ...

California’s alleged Golden State Killer set to plead guilty

By DON THOMPSON SACRAMENTO — Forty years after a sadistic suburban rapist terrorized California in what investigators later realized were a series of linked assaults and slayings, a 74-year-old former police officer is expected to plead guilty Monday to being the elusive Golden State Killer. The deal will spare Joseph James DeAngelo Jr. any chance of the death penalty for 13 murders and 13 kidnapping-related charges spanning six counties. In partial return, survivors of the assaults that spanned...

The BET Awards celebrate 20th anniversary amid pandemic and protests against systemic racism

Back in April, BET Networks’ president Scott Mills and the producers of the annual BET Awards recognized they’d have to cancel its popular four-day BET Experience and free fan fest at L.A. Live due to the continued spread of coronavirus, but they were adamant that the actual awards ceremony would be presented in some capacity. The crew swiftly pivoted the BET Awards, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, to a virtual broadcast without a live audience. The show will be hosted by comedi...

Memorial Day weekend: Beach rules, parking, ideas for ocean getaways without crowds plus your weather and wave forecast

Memorial Day typically marks the “unofficial” start of summer, a long weekend when beachgoers flock to the sand for a day of fun in the sun. But this year is anything but typical, and getting to the sand is, well, complicated. Don’t expect to simply show up with a beach towel and sunbathe – you have to keep moving. Parking is limited and may be tough to find. At some beaches you’re required to wear face masks. And with heat expected to hit in the 80s by Monday inland, expect crowds hoping to coo...
