LA County sheriff, civilian-oversight advocates square off over Measure R

Voters’ approval of Los Angeles County Measure R would give the county’s Civilian Oversight Commission the power to subpoena documents from the Sheriff’s Department and make that ability permanent, not subject to political whims of the Board of Supervisors. Proponents who want stronger scrutiny of the law enforcement agency, especially following deputy-involved shootings, believe the measure would enable the commission to fulfill its watchdog role while requiring the Sheriff to supply its member...

Alexander: No. 1 UCLA visits the mecca of softball this weekend — Cathedral City

The best team in college softball will be determined in early June in Oklahoma City. But for a hint of who that might turn out to be, a trip to Cathedral City this weekend may be in order. This is the 17th year of the Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic, a tournament that was originally intended to provide a West Coast showcase but has turned into softball’s largest event outside of the Women’s College World Series. It began with 16 teams in 2004. Beginning Thursday and running through Sunday, 30 tea...

In deep-blue LA, Trump gives faithful a chance to cheer

Tuesday, Feb. 18, was a rare moment for Southern California’s Trump faithful. One by one — some wearing red “Make America Great Again” hats, some wearing patriotic jackets and pins, most wearing big grins — they climbed off the buses on the tarmac at LAX. They were ushered into an area that would become the “meet and greet’ zone for President Donald Trump. This was the stop-and-shift spot for this whirlwind fourth trip to LA as president– he’d hustle off Air Force One and board Marine One for a ...

White House Domestic Policy Chief Calls California ‘Occupied Territory’

(CNN) — A White House aide called California “occupied territory” in a tweet touting President Donald Trump’s visit to the state on Tuesday. “Just landed in California. POTUS power swing through occupied territory,” Joe Grogan, director of the Domestic Policy Council, tweeted Tuesday night. Grogan’s comments come just as Trump landed on the West Coast, where he’s expected to visit several western states including California — home to a few Republican enclaves, but historically a secure Democrati...

President Donald Trump will  touch down in Los Angeles today — a rare visit to the heavily Democratic region that will include formally signing off on the LA Olympics 2028, fundraising in LA and Riverside County — and in coming days, to Bakersfield, a lone bastion of GOP red. The visit to the West Coast coincides with emerging controversy back in DC, where on Friday, Attorney General William P. Barr appeared to chide the president over his constant tweeting, which he said was undermining the wor...

Yes, that casino you saw in that movie or Netflix comedy is in Southern California

Some of Southern California’s casinos have reached iconic status with their giant hotel towers, expansive gaming floors and Vegas-style decor, so it’s no wonder they’re attracting guests and big name acts yearly but they’re also drawing another group — studios ready to shoot a movie or an episode of their next big TV show. Several large casinos in Southern California have served as stand-ins for major gambling locales such as Las Vegas or Atlantic City because of their proximity to Los Angeles-b...

Fantasy Springs Resort Casino has a role in upcoming Val Kilmer film ‘Pay Dirt’

Director Christian Sesma had long wanted to work on a gritty and high stakes heist movie inspired by some classics, but he didn’t want it filmed just anywhere — he wanted it filmed in the place where he was born, raised and still lives now: the Coachella Valley. Naturally, that was the location for his next project, which just wrapped up filming. “Pay Dirt” stars actors Val Kilmer, Luke Goss and Nick Vallelonga. The film is produced by Sesma and “Green Book” actor Mike Hatton. Sign up for our C...

Alexander: The big guys make their presence felt at Torrey Pines

LA JOLLA — With profuse apologies to our friends in the Coachella Valley, it must be said: The PGA Tour’s 2020 season began in earnest Thursday at Torrey Pines. The autumn events that ostensibly begin the tour are teases, in a sense. The money and the FedEx Cup points are official, but the fields don’t include all of the big guys. The first three events after New Year’s, too, are limited; the Tournament of Champions at Kapalua is a select field of 34 event winners from the previous year, while t...

Alexander: For golfers Rickie Fowler, Brendan Steele, two approaches to the desert

LA QUINTA — For Rickie Fowler, who shares the lead after two rounds at The American Express – aka The Tournament Formerly Known As The Bob Hope – enjoying the Coachella Valley’s golf courses as a junior player at Murrieta Valley High didn’t always translate to seeking them out as a professional. And before playing in this week’s tour stop in the desert, he set up shop here for a week to practice. Brendan Steele, who now calls Irvine home but grew up in Idyllwild, considers this his home tourname...

Here’s how the comeback of an SUV sparked the new 4xFar festival

Thousands of people will pack a venue in Thermal to listen to an eclectic mix of music and participate in outdoor activities for a new festival, and while that’s far from an unusual thing for the Coachella Valley, the origin of this event is — it’s part of a launch campaign for Land Rover. 4xFar, a festival presented by the British luxury SUV maker, will happen at an 80-acre outdoor venue dubbed the Empire Grand Oasis Jan. 18 and 19. It will not only feature a lineup with musicians such as Ander...

Travel: Keeping a bucket list? Consider conquering these 4 (almost) easily doable adventures

Climb the Statue of Liberty. See the tallest tree on Earth. Pay your respects at Pearl Harbor. Hit the jackpot on the $5,000 slot machine at Bellagio in Las Vegas. OK, so some bucket list items are more easily conquered than others. Depending on how grand your aspirations are, knocking off wildest-dream experiences can take from a few minutes to practically a lifetime.
