Recipes: Here’s how you elevate a cheese snack into a proper meal

Some evenings I’m in the mood for a cheese-snack dinner. Something decadent, rich with creamy texture and complex flavors. A treat that balances the cheese’s bold personality with a bit of sweetness. On the side, a lightly dressed mixed-green salad augmented with raw vegetables. Perhaps some apple wedges. Easy. My father would have dubbed this menu a cocktail nibble. He would have raised a ruckus. His annoyance with the absence of a traditional meat-and-veg evening meal would no doubt have led t...

Six months of pandemic photography in the Southern California

One day, this will all be over. Coronavirus will be gone and we’ll get back to normal. But what will we remember? For the past six months, almost every facet of our lives has changed – covered faces, empty shelves, remote learning and drive-thru everything. Our photographers have been working throughout this pandemic to tell the stories of the people of Southern California and record history for our posterity. For our photographers, it’s personal. Normally, when we cover a story we are uninvolve...

Cop’s call as to whether you get cited for not having a front license plate

Q. I just got a fix-it ticket from the California Highway Patrol on the 73 for not having a front license plate. The front of my car, a 2013 Chrysler 300 SRT, did not have a mount for a front plate. Right after getting the ticket, I saw more than five vehicles without front license plates within a two-mile stretch. I went to my car dealership and it graciously put the plate on. I wasn’t looking forward to defacing my car’s front look. Everyone knows that thousands of cars in our area are driving...

Why are unemployment checks months late? State audit aims to find out

Out-of-work Southern Californians have been waiting months for unemployment checks to arrive as the coronavirus pandemic rages and employed residents have mistakenly received piles of payments for which they didn’t ask. Now fed-up lawmakers have demanded an emergency audit of the state agency that handles those claims, the Employment Development Department. The respective chair and vice chair of California’s Joint Legislative Audit Committee, Assemblyman Rudy Salas, D-Bakersfield; and state Sen....

Is it safe to eat squirrel-bitten avocados?

Q: We have a large avocado tree that used to have great fruit but now, as the trees in our tract have gotten bigger, we have squirrels that seem to delight in taking bites out of many of the avocados. Is it safe to use these avocados if we cut around the bite marks? Is there something we can put in the tree to scare them away or keep them out of the tree? A: To answer your first question: Yes, it is safe to eat the avocados that have been bitten into if you cut out the damaged parts. Of course, ...

Vietnamese American felon facing deportation gets backing from activists, elected leaders

Tin Nguyen arrived from Vietnam as a boy, in 1979, with hope for a better future in a new country. But his refugee story took a bad turn. As the only Vietnamese kid in his grade school classes, he was bullied. As a teen, he joined gangs and, as an adult, he committed crimes. Nguyen ended up doing 20 years for murder and robbery. But Nguyen turned his life around in prison. And, last year, after his sentence was commuted, he was given a chance at freedom. That’s when he was picked up for deportat...

Investigation: Gymnasts, parents recount abuse by coaches at Azarian Gymnastics

The sleepless nights were interrupted only by nightmares. “I couldn’t sleep at night I was so scared of Vanessa,” said gymnast Ashton Woodbury, referring to Vanessa Gonzalez, her former coach at Azarian U.S. Gymnastics Training Center, a world renown Orange County club. It was the balance beam that Woodbury dreaded most. It was on the beam where Gonzalez, gymnasts said, left her mark. “I had a mental block on the beam,” Woodbury said. “And Vanessa on the beam she would smack you (on your legs) i...

Google doodle honors Orange County’s Felicitas Mendez

Google’s logo doodle on Tuesday honors an Orange County woman who helped lead the fight to end segregation in California schools. In the drawing that appeared on Google’s homepage Sept. 15, a smiling Felicitas Mendez is shown watching a crowd of happy children of all races walk into a school. Her three children, led by her husband Gonzalo, are among them. That image would have been pure fantasy in the early 1940s, when her children were barred from entering a “white” school in Westminster becaus...

Faster transition to electric vehicles needed, Lung Association says

Even before the current outbreak of wildfires, the greater Los Angeles area perennially experienced the worst air pollution in the nation. The sprawling, automobile-centric region feeds smog into a geographic basin that often locks in the dirty air. The car and truck traffic also contribute to climate change, a primary contributor to the trend of ever-worsening wildfires and their impact on air quality. While the state has led the country in aggressively regulating emissions — and sells more ele...

California Republicans: Give a call to your GOP cousins in swing states

In 33 years of interviewing California politicians, would-be or incumbent, as they seek the newspaper’s endorsement for office, I sometimes will ask who they themselves are supporting for president. Sometimes. As an aside. Usually, it’s obvious. I didn’t have to ask the late Rep. Carlos Moorhead, one of a tiny handful of House members who wouldn’t vote to impeach President Nixon even after the “smoking gun” Oval Office tape was played, if he still liked Tricky Dick. Of course he did. I never had...

‘Behind the 8-ball:’ Many Southern California nursing homes hit hard by coronavirus had prior issues

Evangelina Gonzalez survived the coronavirus. But she found herself lonely and confused inside her nursing home. The 98-year-old, who has dementia, had fallen a couple of times at Monterey Palms Health Care Center in the Coachella Valley, her son said. After contracting the virus last spring, she was placed in an isolation wing for six weeks. “I’ll try to call her and she’s just like, ‘Where are you, where are you? I’m hungry, I’m thirsty, I’m in pain,’” said Gustavo “Sky” Gonzalez of Cathedral ...

How to help – or at least not hinder – firefighters as they battle wildfires and try to save homes

It’s not even the height of wildfire season, but resources are spread thin as firefighters battle multiple, massive fires around California, including some in our backyards. More than 20 million acres – a modern-day record – have burned in the state so far in 2020. And the worst, likely, is yet to come. While there often are summer wildfires, the state’s most destructive blazes typically occur in the fall. But the dry vegetation already prevalent in the region heightens the risk that fires will ...

Bellator 246: Juan Archuleta grateful for another title shot

Any title fight is a welcome fight. To lose and get another shot, in another weight class and less than a year later, amid a pandemic? Juan Archuleta knows a blessing when he sees one. Nearly 12 months after his featherweight championship hopes were derailed, Archuleta sees gold within his reach again when he takes on undefeated Patchy Mix for the vacant bantamweight title at Bellator 246 on Saturday in Uncasville, Connecticut. “I’m 100 percent grateful that Bellator believes in me and was able ...

Honk wouldn’t bicycle on a freeway, but sometimes you legally can

Q. A small group of us annually ride our bikes from Rancho Mission Viejo to Oceanside, going through Camp Pendleton. We have lunch and then take the Amtrak train back – a fun day.

Please comment on the rules associated with riding bikes along this stretch of the I-5, an option that looks scary to me. My bike-riding friends and I are looking fo...

There’s a plumeria serial killer in the garden, and here’s how to stop it

Q: Help! I’m a serial killer of plumerias. I plant the plumeria (Plumeria sp. aka Frangipani) in my sunniest place available against a south-facing wall.  None of my soil drains especially well in Redlands (zone 18/19). Several of my neighbors have beautiful mature plumerias, but my plantings always end up dead.  What am I doing wrong? A: Plumerias are usually considered easy to grow if you are in a frost-free location. Redlands does experience frost on a regular basis, but if you locate frost-t...

Cougars in Santa Monica Mountains show signs of inbreeding

The first physical signs that inbreeding may be taking a toll on the imperiled cougar population of the Santa Monica Mountains were disclosed by National Park Service biologists Wednesday, Sept. 9. For years, wildlife experts have warned that the limited gene pool of mountain lions in the Santa Monica and Santa Ana Mountains created the likelihood of localized extinction unless outside cats were introduced into the populations. The discovery of two lions with kinked tails, at least one of which ...
