How one man lost 150 pounds at Disneyland eating corn dogs and turkey legs

Mark Gautier had been brought back from the dead three times and had just emerged from a two-week coma when a priest was administering last rites to him. “The doctor said, ‘You really need to do something or you’re not going to last much longer,’” recalled Gautier, 39, of Anaheim. At 400 pounds, Gautier had slipped into diabetic shock and his kidneys were shutting down after years of failing health. The doctor’s diagnosis: Gautier needed to exercise and lose weight.

Mike Milken’s real crime isn’t the one he’s been pardoned for

Mike Milken ruined America. The one-time “Junk Bond King” from Beverly Hills had his rap sheet whitewashed by President Donald Trump some 30-plus years after Milken’s financial hijinx sent him to jail and rearranged key slices of the nation’s economy. His legal redemption got a litany of support from billionaires such as Angels owner Arte Moreno, Los Angeles real estate baron Tom Barrack and California supermarket dealmaker Ron Burkle. Look, we know “justice” can be bought. That’s not news. The ...

This 13-year-old superhero from Long Beach is on Disney+’s new ‘Marvel’s Hero Project’

Every superhero has an origin story. Genesis Butler’s started with chicken nuggets. Like most kids she loved chicken nuggets, and as a 3-year-old she ate them almost daily until her mom told her something about her favorite food that horrified her. “I always loved animals but then I started wondering about where my food came from and when she told me how we had to kill animals for it, I never wanted to eat it again,” said the now 13-year-old Long Beach resident. Not only did she never touch a ch...

Two crises that should not be wasted

A crisis, it’s been said, is a terrible thing to waste. Stanford economist Paul Romer coined the phrase in 2004 in referring to the nation’s waning education levels and it’s since been adopted and adapted by others. If exploited adroitly, crises spark needed societal changes that might not otherwise occur, just as otherwise destructive warfare often drives technology that later benefits civilians. California’s biggest crisis these days is a chronic shortage of housing, particularly for those liv...

Housing costs, migration expected to crimp Southern California’s economy

Southern California’s economy remains strong, but it’s expected to lag slightly behind the state through 2021, according to a new report. As with other regions, housing affordability and a net migration inland pose challenges to growth and the efficient movement of people and goods, the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corp. forecast said. On the plus side, per capita income growth is expected to continue to outpace the nation and state, buoyed by strong employment in the construction, lo...

How much could Disneyland tickets cost in 2030, 2040 and 2055?

The latest ticket price increases have Disneyland fans once again complaining about the rising expense of visiting the Happiest Place on Earth, but wait until they see what it could cost to get into Walt Disney’s original theme park on its 100th anniversary in 2055. Data analysis of historical ticket prices found that if Disneyland continues to raise prices at the rate it has for the past 20 years the cost of daily admission could increase nearly tenfold by 2055 when the Anaheim theme park celeb...

Revisiting ‘Return to Oz,’ Disney’s Sequel-to-a-Classic That Haunted Our Nightmares

(Welcome to Out of the Disney Vault, where we explore the unsung gems and forgotten disasters currently streaming on Disney+.) Picture it: a time when the head of Walt Disney Productions said, what if we tried to appeal to more than just families? What if we make a series of boldly innovative films that challenge the notion that we only do one type of film? If that sounds incompatible with the company today, you’d be right, but this was when Ron Miller was in charge during the ‘80s, as he se...

Disney’s new Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway weaves 2 stories into 1 ride

Walt Disney Imagineering has jammed so many historical nods and hidden Easter Eggs into Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway that the creative team behind the new trackless dark ride figured why not toss in a second story line as well. “This attraction actually has a B story,” Walt Disney Imagineering’s Kevin Rafferty asked. “First one ever that has a B story in addition to the A story. It’s very clear and it’s very fun.” Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway trackless dark ride debuts March 4 at D...

In this edition of Theme Park Bits: Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Anaheim is getting FastPass. What’s coming next for Disney California Adventure? And more! When it opened at Disneyland, Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run was a particularly unique new attraction in that it didn’t offer FastPass or MaxPass options to guests. If you wanted to ride, you could either wait in a single-rider line (which I’ve done, and it’s pretty reasonable) or in a very long standby line. Well, no longer: the Dis...
