Long Beach Looks to Jack Up Fines, Take Away Slots From Late Night Offenders (That’s You, JetBlue)

I know not everyone here appreciates a good story from my hometown airport here in Long Beach, but there is a fight brewing that’s going to put a whole lot more pressure on JetBlue in years to come. For over 15 years, the airline has been the dominant player in Long Beach, but with Southwest coming in last year and showing interest in more slots, the airport seems to be thinking it has some leverage for the first time in a long time. It’s going to flex its muscles by toughening up on late nigh...

10 movies that immortalize Colorado

Over the decades , Colorado has been the setting for some of the most memorable films ever produced. Here are 10 of our favorites: 1.

10 ways you’ll be stereotyped for living in Texas

Photo: a4gpa 1. You’re responsible for Bush. It doesn’t matter if you did vote for Obama in 2000 and 2008. You’re from Texas; he was your governor, the only candidate you supported, and you’re the reason the US went into Iraq and Afghanistan. Congratulations. 2. We all want to secede. Only about 1% of Texans are seriously committed to the idea of the Lone Star State leaving the US and forming a new Republic of Texas. It sounds good in theory, but could you imagine crossing the border at Lou...

It’s possible to feel at home on the range on a new holiday ranch in DorsetAt Loose Reins, an American-style ranch, the “wild west” means Dorset. Before visiting, I’d fretted about being miscast as a cowgirl (I’m a regular rider but couldn’t hope to lasso even the statue of a cow) and my husband (an irregular rider) struggling to play John Wayne. But this place is run by Marc and Michelle Gibbs, who know their quarter ho...
