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...

Tuesday was the hottest day of 2021 — and Wednesday won’t be much different

It was the hottest day of the year in Southern California on Tuesday, June 15, and Wednesday could be about the same — not that your internal thermometer would likely recognize any small change. “If it’s 2 degrees warmer or 2 degrees cooler, it won’t make much of a difference to anyone but us, because we like numbers,” said Phil Gonsalves, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in San Diego. “The more extreme the temperature is, the more difficult it is for our sensory mechanism to te...

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...

Heat wave to scorch Southern California, elevate wildfire threat

A heat wave building across Southern California will peak either Tuesday or Wednesday, and may persist with triple-digit temperatures through the week in the Inland Empire and parts of Los Angeles County. Temperatures rose to the upper 80s in the San Gabriel Valley Sunday, and into the 90s in the San Fernando Valley and portions of Riverside and San Bernardino Counties, National Weather Service Meteorologist Kathy Hoxsie said.  A high-pressure system building from the south will continue to driv...

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 ...

Self-employed borrowers still struggle to qualify for government-backed loans

Last week, Fannie Mae started a new program named Refi Now to help low-income borrowers with high debt qualify for a mortgage. The standard for well-qualified borrowers is debt should amount to no more than 50% of their income. Under Refi Now, qualifying debt-to-income ratios rise to an astronomical 65%. Ok. Fair enough. But how about also cutting a break for self-employed borrowers with high debt? It looks like the answer for them is Refi Never. Draconian COVID-19 self-employment underwriting r...

Trailblazing female helicopter pilot fired by OCFA alleges sexual discrimination, sues to get her job back

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. She also flew and reported for Los Angeles-area news stations, earning the nickname “Chopper Chick.” “I was set up to fail (by OCFA) and...

Southern California’s influence on the 100 year old fast food restaurant business

Fast food has been a favorite as far back in time as we can go. Our ancestors might have invented it while Neanderthals were on prehistoric animals’ menu. A quick bite on the run comes to mind. Fast forward to ancient Italy In 2020, Italian historians at the Pompeii Archaeological Park said about 80 fast-food eateries have been found at Pompeii. Last year had the first time a hot and food drink eatery — known as a thermopolium — was completely uncovered. Pompeii was founded in the sixth century ...

Route 66 may get a ‘kick’ from Congress as a ‘national trail’ designation

Before there were freeways or state highways, it was known appropriately as “The Road to the West,” then rebranded “The Mother Road” by the great Western novelist John Steinbeck, and often given the simple moniker “Main Street of America.” Route 66, a 2,400-mile-long roadway connecting the heartland of Illinois and Missouri to Western desert cities and Southern California is referred to in many ways, but two members of Congress want to add one more title: National Historic Trail.

Homeownership out of reach for many Black Americans

The dream of homeownership still eludes many Black Americans. We’re reminded of the racial divide this weekend in particular. It’s the 100th anniversary of the massacre of Blacks Americans in Tulsa. The thriving neighborhood known as “Black Wall Street” was destroyed by a White mob. The murderous riot started on May 31, 1921, killing hundreds in crimes that were never prosecuted. The attacks also   devastated the economic momentum created by the city’s Black residents. Today, a half-century afte...

The 40 acts on stage were chosen to celebrate Redondo Beach’s laid-back vibe — including headliners Bob Weir, Brian Wilson, Ziggy Marley and Willie Nelson. “At the end of the last festival I finally took a breath during Wi...

Southern California travelers warned not to transport backyard citrus fruit

The California citrus industry has a message for road trippers traveling this Memorial Day weekend: Don’t give grandma (or anyone else for that matter) your homegrown fruit. The transport of backyard oranges, lemons, grapefruits and kumquats is illegal in most of Southern California, which is under a citrus fruit and plant quarantine. That’s because movement of fruit, citrus trees and even seeds can unknowingly spread a pest that can infect healthy citrus trees with a deadly plant disease that h...

Who’s looking for David O’Sullivan? At first, almost no one

When David O’Sullivan was reported missing in the San Jacinto Mountains in 2017, his mother in Ireland thought the whole of California would be out there searching for her son. In reality, hardly anyone was. O’Sullivan, 25, had come to the United States in March to hike the Pacific Crest Trail, a 2,650-mile route from the southern border with Mexico to the northern border with Canada. But he made it only about 180 miles, to the Riverside County town of Idyllwild, before disappearing in early Apr...
