Fundraising to save Burbank's horror bookstore Dark Delicacies

Burbank's amazing quarter-century institution Dark Delicacies is a horror book-, memoribilia- and clothing-store that is a community hub for genre creators, hosting a wonderful stream of events, signings, and even an annual chance to get your photo took with Krampus at a Christmas open-house. It's also a potential casualty of the skyrocketing rents in Magnolia Park, where greedy landlords are throwing out the neighborhood's unique indie tenants as fast as they can in the hopes of luring in ...

Sometimes, it is difficult to stay in your lane

Q. I am a retired firefighter of 34 years, and for 25 of those years I was on a paramedic unit and drove lights-and-siren as much or more than anyone at the time. I consider myself a cautious driver. On Christmas day we were driving down to San Diego on the I-5 Freeway. It was about 10:30 a.m. and raining. We were just passing where Highway 1 intersects the I-5, and the freeway lanes disappeared. The road in that area has the current striping; the old striping that Caltrans removed, but with the...

Circus Vargas rolls into town, animal-free and ready to entertain. Here’s an early look

A family business is coming to Burbank and they want to entertain you and take you back in time to the golden era of the circus. The traditional circus under one big blue tent covered in yellow stars along the 5 Freeway is full of magic made by generations of people who can fly, contort their bodies into shapes that you would not believe were possible, make costumes that take you back in time, and dance to tell a story of a young girl who stops in a town and encounters a circus. Circus Vargas is...

‘I thought I would die’: She survived the Northridge earthquake, and it changed her life

Andrea Alvarado was in her rented Granada Hills home on Jan. 17, 1994, when her bedroom walls and windows began to rattle. She jumped out of her bed and headed to the living room to find her door blocked. A piano rolled across the hallway and barricaded the entrance. Alvarado began pounding on the door and screaming. “I thought I would die,” she said. “I grew up in L.A., and as kids we would laugh when the lamps went back and forth. It was like riding a roller coaster. But that day, it jolted an...

Massive tree falls on LACCD board trustee’s Burbank home

A majestic, ancient oak tree can be a beautiful sight, but it can also be an instrument of destruction, as Los Angeles Community College District Board Trustee Scott Svonkin and his family learned Wednesday night in Burbank. KTLA5 reported that a three-story-tall oak tree on Myers Street was uprooted after days of rain and came crashing down on the structure. Firefighters told the family Wednesday night that the home wasn’t safe to inhabit, and as workers began removing the massive oak tree, Svo...

Heavy rain brings flash-flood threat, high surf, mudslide danger to burn areas

LOS ANGELES — The last and strongest of three storms to hit Southern California this week slid into the region Thursday, generating periods of heavy rain, which could trigger street flooding and shallow mud and debris flows in several areas previously denuded by wildfires, National Weather Service forecasters said. The rain could unleash mudslides and debris flows “in and near recent burn scars across Los Angeles, Ventura, and Santa Barbara Counties. These include the Hill, Sherpa, South, Ston...

Penny Marshall to be honored with 12-hour ‘Laverne & Shirley’ marathon

Penny Marshall died in December leaving behind a legacy of films that she had produced and/or directed, such as “Big,” “Awakenings” and “A League of Their Own.” But to many she is probably best remembered for her starring role in “Laverne & Shirley.” The sitcom about two wacky friends and roommates, Laverne DeFazio (Marshall) and Shirley Feeney (Cindy Williams), and their adventures in late-1950s Milwaukee, lasted eight seasons and has become a part of television history. Marshall will be honore...

Did the ‘National Enquirer’ finally get one right with its sensational exposé of Bezos’s affair?

“The World’s Richest Man Caught Cheating!” screams a National Enquirer special edition devoting 11 lurid pages to Amazon chief Jeff Bezos and his alleged marriage-wrecking affair. You can loathe the tabloids for their flagrant disregard of facts, their rampant dishonesty, flights of fantasy and mean-spirited personal attacks, but one thing they undeniably do well is stalk celebrities. And while it’s highly debatable whether such intrusion into the deeply personal life of a private businessman is...

LAUSD teachers went on strike in 1989. But are the stakes higher in 2019?

Whether they were stuck in an auditorium or playing long-term hooky, many a school kid old enough to remember the 1989 Los Angeles teachers strike recalls the period as nine days of good old-fashioned lawlessness. Quoted in a New York Times article at the time, LAPD Lieut. Frank Valdez expressed his concern about “little predators” roaming LA’s downtown streets. “The problem kids are not going to go to school and it’s going to create problems all over, not just on campus,” he said during the str...

Perry Farrell’s bag with family heirloom stolen while unloading car in driveway

While bringing in luggage following an Aspen getaway with his wife late Thursday afternoon, Jane’s Addiction frontman Perry Farrell’s Alexander McQueen carry-on was stolen from his Santa Monica driveway. Among the contents in the bag was a stylized lion charm made by his late father, a jeweler, in the 1970s. Security cameras captured a young woman with dark curly hair step out of the passenger side of a 2005 red Toyota Avalon and grab the bag before driving off, leaving Farrell “devastated and h...

Man visited celebrity open houses in LA before targeting homes for burglary, police say

A man arrested in connection to a series of break-ins at celebrity and high-end homes targeted each after they were listed for sale, detectives said, casing each place while posing as a real estate agent or prospective buyer. Benjamin Etan Ackerman, 32 of Los Angeles, was arrested in September on suspicion of committing 12 burglaries after investigators found his name in the sign-in books of each home’s open house. That’s when police served a search warrant at his home in the Mid-Wilshire area a...

These 11 big stories happened in and around the San Fernando Valley in 2018

It’s been said the San Fernando Valley is that bucolic place — the L.A. suburb that gets short shrift and little attention from the moving and shaking, the hustle and bustle, over the hill in DTLA and the westside. That may be true, but don’t let that fool you into thinking there’s little news or not much happening in this place of early 2 million people. Sure, the Valley’s got its slow days. We’ve had them here in the newsroom. But in the bigger picture, the place the Kardashians call home, whe...
