What to do if you want to move a patio plant indoors

Q: I have a plant on my patio and I was hoping to be able to bring it in the house because it looks so pretty but I figure it would need to be climatized or it would die. I’ve had it on my patio for over 8 years. What do you think? A: Plants that have been outdoors may have some pest issues, so they should be inspected before bringing them inside (another lesson I learned the hard way). Plants that have been indoors need to be gradually acclimated before they can go outdoors, even on a covered p...

‘Official’ ballot box battle from the 2020 election might spark a new state law

State Sen. Tom Umberg is confident that if the bill he’s pitching as a way to boost voter protections had been in place last fall, someone from the California Republican Party would be facing criminal penalties today. But as it stands, the issue Democrat Umberg hopes to fix — the clear labeling of ballot drop boxes — remains a legal gray area, with nobody of either political party facing legal problems connected to drop boxes from the 2020 election. The incident that got Umberg interested in the...

Court access in Southern California remains limited to public despite re-openings elsewhere

As the masks come off and pandemic rules are relaxed across California after Tuesday’s re-opening, state courthouses in Southern California are keeping their COVID-19 restrictions in place. That means that for courts in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino counties, masks are still required inside. Social distancing will be enforced, which limits capacity. Members of the public are only allowed inside the courts if they have a scheduled appointment or are summoned by officials for t...

Statewide flex alert issued for Thursday evening as high temperatures continue in Southern California

Workers to picket Tenet hospitals over alleged understaffing, health insurance concerns

Workers plan to picket three Tenet Healthcare hospitals Wednesday, June 16, alleging the facilities are understaffed and have left some employees without health insurance while the company has received billions in federal COVID-19 relief funds and spent $1.1 billion to buy 45 surgery centers. The employees, including respiratory therapists, housekeepers, nursing assistants and medical technicians, are represented by the National Union of Healthcare Workers (NUHW).

Sparks are flying from all directions this Fourth of July fireworks season

America may be divided on politics, race, gender, immigration, the economy, gun control, climate change, vaccine passports and myriad other issues, but at least we can all agree on how to celebrate our own nation’s birthday, right? Nope. Those “bonfires and illuminations” that future President John Adams encouraged citizens to light every Fourth of July are breathtaking bones of contention. If it isn’t fears over fires caused by misuse, it’s the nuisance factor or even a matter of health for tho...

Southern California communities to swelter on scorching hot Tuesday

Drink plenty of water and stay in a cool place, preferably with an air conditioner, on Tuesday, June 15, which weather experts predict will the hottest day this week in many Southern California communities. “This is not typical for this time of year,” said Philip Gonsalves, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. He said typical temperatures this time of year are much lower, depending on where you are. Weather experts believe records will be broken Tuesday. The record of 95 degrees s...

All-in-one Fetal Care Center set to open at CHOC in Orange

The Fetal Care Center of Southern California, based at CHOC Children’s Hospital in Orange, is set to open its doors on Wednesday, June 16, offering expectant moms whose babies will be born with birth defects the kind of comprehensive care in one place, and during a single visit, that is hard to find in the region.

Juneteenth a moment to celebrate history, commemorate challenges and victories of last year, and keep up the fight

Kavon Ward will step onto Bruce’s Beach Park later this week for a celebration. A celebration of Juneteenth, of Black history and Black culture. Of the gains, though incomplete, those fighting against systemic racism have made in the 365 days since Ward co-hosted the inaugural Juneteenth celebration at the Manhattan Beach park. And of the history that could soon be made. A year ago this Saturday, June 19, when Ward and about 50 others gathered at Bruce’s Beach Park to commemorate the day in 1865...

Bad teachers are a bigger threat to students than school police

Last summer, with tempers still boiling over the murder of George Floyd, the California Teachers Association and its hundreds of local affiliates joined the chorus of activists calling to defund all police everywhere. The Los Angeles teachers union still insists its members will not return to classes until police are removed from campuses throughout the nation’s second-largest school district. As a former Orange County Probation Department officer and a current public school teacher in Orange Co...

Some Southern Californians are anxious — not excited — about June 15 reopening

Nazia Siddiquei is happy that California is reopening Tuesday, June 15, because she wants the economy to be strong again. At the same time, the Corona woman is anxious. “I’m a little bit nervous and concerned because we don’t really know what is going to happen,” Siddiquei, 39, said. “Even though we are vaccinated, the vaccine may not protect us against some of the variants out there.” So, for a while at least, she plans to continue wearing a mask in public places. “I just don’t feel safe,” she ...

Jacoby & Meyers brand used by lawyer brokerage to commit insurance fraud, alleges OC Grand Jury

From billboards to daytime TV, advertisements for the law firm of Jacoby & Meyers are inescapable. It can be difficult getting through a television show or sporting event without hitting a commercial for the 49-year-old law group, said to have 300 attorneys in 50 states. It’s even the official law firm for the Los Angeles Dodgers and earned a line in a Beastie Boys song: “Got more suits than Jacoby & Meyers.” But the company started by Len Jacoby and Stephen Meyers in 1972 in recent years has be...

Why are investors buying empty buildings?

As an owner of commercial real estate, you fall into one of two categories. You either are entirely divorced from the occupant. In other words, you have no ownership in the resident company or you do. We refer to the latter as an owner-occupant and the former as an arm’s length investor. If we then dissect the genres of arm’s length investors – those who rely upon a tenant to pay rent – myriad classes unfold. The folks next door might own a small strip center housing a nail salon, fast food join...

Republican Kevin Faulconer brings governor campaign to Orange County

Kevin Faulconer made a campaign stop Thursday in Fountain Valley, pledging during a local Vietnamese American news show segment that he’ll make California more livable for everyone if he’s elected governor. “California is too expensive and people are voting with their feet,” Faulconer said, as he pitched plans to lower taxes, increase the state’s supply of affordable housing and tackle homelessness. The moderate Republican is fiscally conservative but socially liberal, opposing California’s gas ...

What to do if you find scale on a fruit tree

Q: I just bought a cherry tree and found it has red shiny spots on most of its leaf stems. I sprayed with a fungicide but see no result, those spots look permanent. Are they OK? Is there some treatment I should do? A: Scale insects are commonly found on stems and young branches of fruit trees. Mild infestations are usually not a problem. If the tree looks otherwise healthy, I would take a “wait and see” approach. Keep an eye out for the presence of honeydew (a sticky substance exuded by scales a...

Sparks look to extend winning streak in Washington

The Sparks (4-3) ride a two-game winning streak into the nation’s capital to take on the Washington Mystics (3-5) Thursday. Two games removed from losing Nneka Ogwumike for extended time, the Sparks have solidified an identity as a defensive stalwart. Saturday’s 68-63 win over the Chicago Sky left the Sparks tied with the Sky for the WNBA’s best defensive rating. “Players that actually see defense as a way of them expressing their basketball identity,” Coach Derek Fisher said. “The best teams in...

The Orange County Fire Authority’s first female helicopter pilot has filed a sexual discrimination lawsuit against the agency for firing her after a one-year probation period, essentially labeling her “untrainable.” Pilot Desiree Horton’s termination came despite nearly 30 years of experience flying helicopters, 16 of those with state and federal fire agencies.

In combating anti-Asian hate incidents, a growing debate in Southern California over law enforcement’s role

A racist verbal attack she endured while jogging through her Los Angeles neighborhood last year, just as the pandemic was about to take hold, left Khinn Ung frightened and confused, and prompted her to make a simple vow: Don’t go out alone. “Are you from Wuhan? Are you from Wuhan, China? Why do you bring the virus to us?” Ung, who is Asian American, recalled a man chasing and yelling at her during the February 2020 incident in Chinatown. Luckily, a bystander intervened, scaring off the culprit. ...

Luring steelhead trout from ocean to O.C. waterways

After nearly two decades of efforts, the endangered steelhead trout appear on the verge of returning to Orange County streams and rivers. The oceangoing fish return to freshwater to spawn as part of a dramatic and almost magical cycle, in which their offspring are often rainbow trout. Twenty percent or less of those rainbow trout then seek ocean water downstream and transform into the larger, silvery steelheads as they adapt to the saltwater. But Southern California’s steelheads are endangered, ...
