Here is how some in the San Fernando Valley celebrated Pi Day

Sure, Pi Day may be all about a particular mathematics ratio. But for many San Fernando Valley residents, Thursday, March 14 — also known as “3.14” — was simply a great day to dig in to a slice of pie. Or a few.

For the San Fernando Valley’s economic centers, post-Northridge quake recovery has been 25 years in the making

Some effects of the Northridge earthquake have endured longer than others. A quarter-century later, several buildings that were damaged by the magnitude 6.7 temblor that rocked the region just before dawn on Jan. 17, 1994 are still vacant. But local officials say that while recovery in some San Fernando Valley areas has been slow, things are starting to turn around — such as in Panorama City and along Laurel Canyon Boulevard in North Hollywood. Meanwhile, such areas as Lankershim Boulevard have ...

Notre Dame, Simi Valley, Birmingham boys soccer win holiday tournaments

NEWHALL >> Notre Dame defender Matthew McGonigle had a score to settle with Hart High’s boys soccer team. His was being outplayed, and the tension was even greater between two teams that played less like common opponents and more like bitter rivals. Eight yellow cards were issued, but it was Notre Dame which kept its composure in the end to defeat Hart 4-1 and avenge a loss to the Indians on the same field three weeks ago. Darwin Quintanilla rips and scores a beauty from 15 yards out. Notre Dam...

On Candy Cane Lane in Woodland Hills, neighbors worry whether newer residents will carry on the twinkly torch

As Woolsey fire winds down, it’s #MalibuStrong on Thanksgiving Day at Pepperdine

Blackened hillsides surround Pepperdine University as work continues on cleaning dormitories of smoke and ash, marks of the massive Woolsey fire that passed through Malibu two weeks ago and forced a large-scale evacuation. But inside the school’s cafeteria Thursday, hundreds of people sat together eating turkey and pie, chatting, hugging and enjoying live music.

Sgt. Ron Helus, who died protecting others, remembered as a ‘hero’

It was 1989, and Sgt. Ron Helus was still in the academy. The instructors there, in a dusty corner of Camarillo, would test recruits’ composure by ragging on them, ribbing them, trying to get them to laugh. If they cracked a smile — push-ups. It didn’t end there. With each rep, the jokes would continue. For Helus, at the start of what would be a 29-year career, there was only one problem. “He was quick to laugh,” said Scott Horton, who was in the academy with Helus. “He didn’t take himself too s...
