Fighting Fyre with Fyre: the story of two warring festival documentaries

The failed music festival has inspired two new documentaries and a war off-screen over the morality of the film-makers involvedScandal sells, or so it’s said, but few have captured the zeitgeist with quite the velocity as the rise and fall, in April 2017, of Fyre. The luxury music festival – a Bahamas-set Coachella with villas and supermodels, it promised – collapsed into financial fraud and memes of drunk twentysomethings scrambling for Fema tents and styrofoam tray meals, all direct to our scr...

This earthquake guide will help prepare your business for the next big one

Southern California is a known center of earthquake activity, yet many businesses in the region are ill prepared for another major shaker. Budgets, deadlines, vendor contracts, taxes … these are the things most business owners are occupied with. But with the 25th anniversary of the Jan. 17, 1994 Northridge Earthquake upon us, companies would be well advised to develop a plan to better insulate their operations from the destructive power of large quakes. And that next big one? It could be right a...

25 years after the Northridge earthquake, another one could hit ‘any time.’ Are we safer?

A quarter century has passed, but David Miller will never forget the sound. “It was like there was a freight train under my house,” he said, recalling the moment 25 years ago Thursday, Jan. 17, when the Earth’s plates suddenly slipped along a previously unknown fault 11 miles beneath his Prairie Street home in Northridge. Firefighters work to free trapped residents at the Northridge Meadows Apartments on Reseda Blvd in Northridge CA. (Los Angeles Daily News/SCNG) Firefighters examine the ...

Trump’s ‘trifecta of ineptitude’ on fires

When I got on the conference call with Gov. Gavin Newsom, along with six other California editorial writers Thursday afternoon, I was thinking back to newspaper photographs from the aftermath of the Camp fire. The then-governor-elect was helping tour President Donald Trump through the devastated town of Paradise. As they walked through Paradise lost, the many images shot that day by photojournalists showed a somewhat astounding — and then again, very humanly understandable — amount of touchy-fee...

This Rancho Cucamonga woman and her dog searched the ruins of the Camp Fire for remains

Sharon Gattas spent Thanksgiving this year among the ruins of the largest fire in modern California history, the Camp Fire that leveled the Northern California town of Paradise. “I am not a firefighter, I don’t run towards fire,” the Rancho Cucamonga woman said. “My husband did that; he’s nuts.” What she can do, however, is train dogs to help in times of disaster. “The dogs we choose to do this are the dogs that most people throw away,” Gattas said. “They are terrible pets.
