Could Southern California see all-time record heat this weekend?

The oppressive summer heat that descended on Southern California in late August is back — and this time the searing temperatures may set some all-time records while again bringing threats to public safety along with the possibility of rolling power blackouts and wildfires. Weather experts say the latest heat wave is likely to yield temperatures between 10 to 20 degrees above normal over the Labor Day weekend. Some Southern California cites removed from the cooler coastal areas — including Woodla...

Heat wave brings threat of rolling blackouts

The heat wave baking Southern California is expected to last late into the week and could force as many as 3.3 million homes statewide to lose power during rolling blackouts Monday, state officials warned. The heat wave engulfing the West Coast created an energy shortage, according to the operator of the power grid. The California Independent System Operator says it will likely order utility companies to turn off power starting around 4 p.m. as demand for electricity to cool homes soars during t...

Ever hit a pothole and want the city to pay for the damage?

Q. Dear Honk: Last week I was cruisin’ north on Vista Del Mar in the El Segundo/Playa del Rey area in my classic ’57 Chevy convertible. In the No. 1 lane there is a GIANT pothole. Of course I hit it with my left-front tire, causing damage. I haven’t yet gotten an estimate on fixing it. But it will cost, probably, $400 to $500. Can I contact the county/city and make them pay for this damage? – Dave Kingsley, Torrance A. With all of the various taxes Southern Californians face, you would certainly...

Quarantine kindness: Who left gifts and cards for Anaheim Hills kids?

The mysterious envelopes showed up on a Saturday morning, tucked under the windshield wipers of cars in this Anaheim Hills neighborhood. Phones started ringing. “Did you get one?” Inside the envelopes was money, just a little bit, usually $5 or $10 bills and handwritten cards. Thoughtful and inspiring notes. They were signed “Bill and Barb.” The problem was, no one who received the envelopes knew who Bill and Barb were. They hadn’t used their last names, hadn’t left an address. There was nothing...

Coronavirus: 8 things we got wrong — at first — about the deadly pandemic

A lot of our early assumptions about the new coronavirus have flip-flopped. This is normal. That’s how science works — it’s a process of being less and less wrong over time. COVID-19 is new, so there’s lots of uncertainty. And the pandemic’s size and scale caught us by surprise. As we learn more, our understanding of the virus continues to change. Here’s what we now know: Masks are useful after all. TOKYO, JAPAN – APRIL 08: A statue of a small boy is pictured with a face mask on April 8, 2020 ...

Mask shaming erupts as latest public battle over coronavirus restrictions

As a culture war rages across the nation over whether to wear protective masks, closer to home the battle is spilling over into store aisles and shopping center parking lots with alarming frequency — and at times violent consequences. Los Angeles police this week announced the arrest of two brothers who allegedly assaulted store employees and a security guard who attempted to escort them from a Target in Van Nuys for refusing to wear masks. The guard sustained a broken arm in the brawl captured ...

Rains fuel above-average Southern California wildflower bloom

The coronavirus pandemic brought the economy to a screeching halt. But Mother Nature kept right on going. Thanks to soaking March and April rains, colorful wildflowers are springing up from the sun-splashed hills of the Inland Empire to the fog-kissed coastal bluffs of Los Angeles and Orange counties. “It’s a strange year,” said Evan Meyer, executive director for the Theodore Payne Foundation for Wildflowers and Native Plants in Los Angeles’ Sun Valley. “We got a lot of rain early and then it wa...

Drive-up and call-in public input? How coronavirus is changing access to local government

If American democracy rests on public access and participation, how do you run a democratic government when a global pandemic means the public can’t set foot in city hall? In Southern California, local officials are answering that question in some creative ways. Firefighters battle to save homes on Canyon Heights Drive Monday October 9, 2017 during the Canyon Fire 2 in the Anaheim Hills. As of 3pm at least 6 homes had been destroyed by the wind blown fire.

Video calls replace hugs for elderly in senior care amid coronavirus outbreak

Coronavirus complicates already-trying child custody issues

The call went to the police. A father had kidnapped his daughter. The allegation prompted a family law court in Los Angeles to hold an emergency hearing this week. Here’s the problem … no kidnapping had taken place. A father, who lives in Hemet, had half-time custody rights. He had kept his daughter past the time the girl’s mother had expected her home. The issue turned out to be that the father had the right to keep her for two straight weeks when she was out of school. The mother, who lives in...

This Disneyland fan spent 20 years creating a miniature replica railroad in his backyard

Think small. That might be the motto of David Sheegog, an architect who’s spent nearly 20 years building a miniature replica of the Disneyland railroad in his small Anaheim Hills backyard. In 1998, he came up with the idea of building a so-called “garden railroad” behind his house after visiting a toy store for his nephew and examining a Thomas the Tank Engine playset. “We bought this house in 1994 and the yard wasn’t really landscaped,” Sheegog said. “I wanted to design something for the bac...

Southern California prepares for a busy fire season thanks to recent storms and a possibly hot, dry summer

It’s May in Agoura Hills and its slopes scorched by the Woolsey fire last November are now green with tall grass rising from charred soil. Yellow blossoms dot the hills, and flurries of painted lady butterflies float through the moist air that seven months ago was suffocated by embers and ash. “It got so smoky that it felt like you were in a room that was on fire, and you couldn’t breathe,” said Lawrence Linick, 55 while sitting on the front porch of his Agoura Hills home that hugs the grassy sl...

Wildflower season is here! These will be the best spots to see them across Southern California in 2019

If Southern California’s wildflower season had an opening weekend, it would be the first weekend of March. This is usually when the region starts to transition from rainy winter to sunny spring, cueing flowers to bloom and parks to prepare for crowds of visitors. As rainy as this winter has been,  many flower lovers are hoping for a “superbloom” — an exceptional season in which bright flowers blanket the hillsides (and social media feeds). Some areas, especially in drier, warmer locales, are alr...

Some cheating motorists put themselves, others at great risk

Q. I see almost daily cars entering the 91 Express Lanes AFTER the electronic toll readers, deliberately avoiding having to pay an expensive one-way ride from Anaheim Hills or Yorba Linda to Riverside County. These vehicles are a huge safety hazard for the people using the Express Lanes, who typically move at a higher rate of speed than those on the adjacent 91 Freeway. These violators cut over the plastic poles that divide the tollway from the regular lanes and have the paying patrons slamming ...
