California Reports More Than 20,000 New Coronavirus Cases Wednesday

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP/CBS13) — California reported more than 20,000 new coronavirus cases on Wednesday, shattering the state’s previous one-day record as Gov. Gavin Newsom — himself quarantined at home after his family was exposed — considers a new stay-at-home order. California’s cases plummeted in August and September following an early summer surge that prompted a new round of restrictions. The state then relaxed restrictions, allowing more businesses to operate, indoor religious services to...

The gold standard: Rafer Johnson’s extraordinary life ends at age 86

Those who knew Rafer Johnson tell their stories in sympathetic tones to those who didn’t, as if it were the lost opportunity of a lifetime. Johnson was the 1960 Olympic champion in the decathlon. When his daughter Jenny began studying ancient Greece in elementary school, Johnson brought out his gold medal. For many years it was the only time she ever saw it. “He was the guy folding up the chairs at the end of a concert, handing out drinks at our soccer games,” said Bill Shumard, who for 15 years...

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP/CBS13) — Sen. Dianne Feinstein has picked a favorite in the fight to replace Vice President-elect Kamala Harris as California’s junior senator: Secretary of State Alex Padilla.

Rep. Maxine Waters criticizes Caltrans for removing people from vacant El Sereno homes

LOS ANGELES — Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Los Angeles, criticized Caltrans Wednesday for having people evicted from vacant homes the state agency owns in El Sereno as part of the abandoned 710 North Freeway Extension Project. “The COVID-19 pandemic crisis has posed a severe threat to our communities for nearly a year now, but the pandemic is unrelenting and continues to surge across much of the country,” Waters said. “Cases are rising, the death toll is mounting and the United States is now experienci...

Did 500,000 ex-Californians help Biden win the White House?

A half-million more Californians left the state than arrived during President Donald Trump’s first three years in office. Was that outflow from a state where Trump lost badly twice a factor in his failure to win re-election? Everybody’s got a theory about what swung the White House to former Vice President Joe Biden. The pandemic. Racial injustice. The economy. Women. Folks with college degrees. Just to name a few. Let me add California to that mix. It’s not that Biden won the state by 5 million...

Dry Start To Winter Prompts Low California Water Allocation

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP/CBS13) — California’s water managers on Tuesday preliminarily allocated just 10% of requested water supplies to agencies that together serve more than 27 million Californians and 750,000 acres of farmland. The state Department of Water Resources cited the dry start to the winter rainy season in California’s Mediterranean climate, in addition to low reservoir levels from last year’s relatively dry winter.

Newsom unveils tax relief, cash grants for small businesses

Newsom also said an emergency appropriation will be used to give small businesses up to $25,000 in cash grants. In addition, more cash is being set aside for a new busine...

SACRAMENTO (CBS13/AP) – Some regions in California hardest-hit by COVID-19 hospitalizations could be under a mandatory stay-at-home order if hospitalizations increase, the Governor said Monday.

Tonight, you can watch a lunar eclipse, or at least try to

As you sneak some late-night Thanksgiving leftovers, take a moment to marvel at the full moon. Do you notice anything different? It’s subtle, but Sunday night on the west coast or early Monday elsewhere, the full moon should appear a bit darker than usual. That’s because you’re witnessing a penumbral lunar eclipse, a celestial occurrence in which the moon dips behind Earth’s faint, outer shadow, or penumbra. Penumbral eclipses are slight, verging on imperceptible in some cases, says Jackie Faher...

Are California’s pandemic job losses overstated?

Let me offer a sliver of good economic news deep inside a very dark trend: California job losses early in the pandemic may have been smaller than what was initially reported. One of my favorite employment measurements — the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics’ “quarterly survey of employment and wages” — shows California losing an almost unthinkable 10.2% of its jobs in the year ended in 2020’s second quarter. While it’s hard to say anything other than “ugh,” the monthly state data for the same peri...

SAN FRANCISCO (AP/CBS13) — California can’t enforce a ban vanity license plates it considers “offensive to good taste and decency” because that violates freedom of speech, a federal judge ruled Tuesday.
