Buena Park calls on Newsom to reopen Knott’s Berry Farm

The six-month closure of Knott’s Berry Farm has been “devastating” for the Buena Park theme park and a “disaster” for the city that depends on the 100-year-old institution to drive spending at area hotels, restaurants and businesses, according to Buena Park mayor Fred Smith. “Tourism is a big part of Buena Park’s economy,” Smith said during a press conference across from Disneyland. “Knott’s Berry Farm is the largest employer in our city. It is the largest source of tax revenue, drawing visitors...

Too much cheering, not enough leading

Let’s time travel. What if Donald Trump had been president back in 1941? “Yesterday, December 7, a day that was bad, but not as bad as the lying fake media says,” his famous speech might have begun. “And nobody’s even thanked me. Can you imagine if Obama was president? It would have been the worst day ever,” he continues. “And most of the boats that went blub, blub were old anyway,” offers the commander-in-chief to head off panic. “Our younger ships are practically immune to kamikazes,” he adds....

As Nov. 3 election draws near, fears mount of escalating street violence

As a bitterly divided nation barrels toward the Nov. 3 presidential election, experts who study domestic terrorism and extremism are alarmed by the escalating civil unrest across the country, with one warning that “once violence becomes more normalized, it doesn’t go back in the shell.” A summer of street protests since the Memorial Day killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis is turning more deadly, marked by the Aug. 25 fatal shooting of two protesters in Kenosha, Wisconsin, by an armed youth wh...

The Detroit Red Wings Lack A Modern-Day Rivalry

The Colorado Avalanche. The Chicago Blackhawks. The Toronto Maple Leafs. Even the Pittsburgh Penguins. What do these teams have in common? At one point or another, they were considered rivals of the Detroit Red Wings. The list is not limited to those four teams; an Original Six franchise like the Red Wings has a storied history with almost every team in the league. However, a true, bitter rivalry has been hard to come by in 2020. Related: 3 Biggest Trades in Red Wings History Maybe it’s...

Does ‘business interruption insurance’ apply in a COVID-19 pandemic?

In March and April, as businesses were suddenly forced to close due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many business owners asked whether there was insurance coverage for the losses caused by the shutdown. Specifically, business owners asked whether “business interruption” and “civil authority” coverages typically found in Commercial General Liability policies potentially covered the staggering losses associated with the shutdowns. Business interruption coverage covers lost profits when a business cannot...

Don’t allow police reform to slip out of our hands

Over the last few months, Americans across the country and across the political spectrum have rightly demanded reforms to policing. In order for this to be achieved, we need a coolheaded, constructive approach. Vandalism, violence and physical confrontations only detract from the serious and important work to turn legitimate outrage into tangible solutions. In one sadly ironic incident over the past week, protesters surrounded Sen. Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, last Thursday and, amid shoving, repeated...

Uncertainty dominates presidential campaign’s final stretch

By STEVE PEOPLES, ZEKE MILLER and JONATHAN LEMIRE | Associated Press NEW YORK — Within President Donald Trump’s campaign, some privately feared the worst heading into the national conventions. They worried a strong showing by Democrat Joe Biden, combined with an underwhelming performance by Trump, would lock in the certainty of a blowout loss that would essentially end the election by September. But as the candidates move beyond trouble-free conventions and into the final phase of the 2020 elect...

Court rejects Terin Humphrey bid to join Nassar case, citing missed filing deadline

Presidential race will put California’s foibles on trial

Joe Biden’s selection of Sen. Kamala Harris as his vice presidential running mate is a source of great pride for California Democrats, understandably so. Their reactions generally project that a Vice President Harris will be the odds-on favorite to succeed Biden in either 2024 or 2028, so California will have an advocate in high places for many years to come. “California has been too often irrelevant in national politics since Ronald Reagan left in 1988,” Ace Smith, a top strategist on Harris’ i...
