Investigation: Gymnasts, parents recount abuse by coaches at Azarian Gymnastics

The sleepless nights were interrupted only by nightmares. “I couldn’t sleep at night I was so scared of Vanessa,” said gymnast Ashton Woodbury, referring to Vanessa Gonzalez, her former coach at Azarian U.S. Gymnastics Training Center, a world renown Orange County club. It was the balance beam that Woodbury dreaded most. It was on the beam where Gonzalez, gymnasts said, left her mark. “I had a mental block on the beam,” Woodbury said. “And Vanessa on the beam she would smack you (on your legs) i...

NFL referee wants you to be a little more ‘Cuddly’

He will take the field for an NFL game in Jacksonville, and few people will know he’s such a dynamic, dual-threat performer. He’s not a player, coach, announcer or national anthem singer. He’s the referee. John Hussey is 56 years old, and he’s beginning his 19th year throwing flags in the NFL. (Career highlight: He was an official in Super Bowl 45 – 2010, Packers vs. Steelers). He’ll start on Sunday, Sept. 13 in the middle of the field in Jacksonville, Florida, as the Jaguars play host to the Co...

Escape rooms open up to virtual thrills because of the coronavirus

In Temecula, a gold rush-era cabin, complete with wooden walls and mining equipment, attracts groups of people on a quest to find a secret mine full of gold. The seekers leave no object untouched, no clue unexamined. These participants aren’t actually in a cabin, but are watching online as an employee of MindTrap Escape Room takes their suggestions to find the loot and get out in less than an hour in an escape room in a strip mall off Ynez Road. Their guide, dressed as 19th century miner “One Ey...

HOA Homefront: The reserve fund – how much is too much?

Q: Something has been bothering me for a while regarding the reserve funding level that is appropriate for a given association. Many associations strive (and set the dues) to achieve 100% funded. Do they really need to carry such high balances? Wouldn’t it be enough to carry only sufficient balances to meet the future projected reserve expenses (with a sufficient contingency cushion for uncertainties)? Why should we be paying dues to maintain an unnecessarily high reserve fund balance? Wouldn’t ...

Dramatic rescue in Palos Verdes cave earns South Bay lifeguard Medal of Valor award

The tide was rising, big waves were rolling in and it was almost nightfall. Within minutes, the person trapped in the dark cave would likely be out of air. Los Angeles Fire Department Ocean Lifeguard Nick Macko wasted no time jumping in the rough water surrounded by razor-sharp rocks after a call came in that a man was trapped in a remote gorge off Palos Verdes. Nick Macko, LA County lifeguard who received the “Medal Of Valor” for his service, works at 28th Street tower in Hermosa Beach on S...

Netflix’s ‘Kingdom’ May be a South Korean Zombie Series, But No Show Better Sums Up the Age of Coronavirus

(Welcome to The Soapbox, the space where we get loud, feisty, political, and opinionated about anything and everything.) Kingdom , one of Netflix’s original South Korean dramas, couldn’t be streaming at a more apt time.  The drama is, on the surface, a zombie show. It’s intriguing in how it puts the classic zombie trope into a historical drama format—the zombie outbreak has occurred during the Joseon Dynasty. But despite its classic zombie horror trappings and lush historical sets and costume...

Sacramento’s misguided attacks on single-family housing

“Honest question,” a housing activist wrote to me on Twitter, “since you mention the ‘impacts to all’ of housing policy, what do you say to someone who wants to live in Pasadena but can’t afford $875K to live here (or $3K/month in rent)?” The topic of discussion was Senate Bill 1120, a housing bill that was awaiting a vote in the Assembly while the clock ticked toward the constitutionally mandated deadline for the end of the legislative session on Aug. 31. SB1120 was controversial. As the phones...

Southern California cities can soon object to giant increases in housing goals

Southern California cities facing enormous increases in the number of homes the state wants them to build over the next decade soon will be able to appeal their “RHNA allocations” under a massive transportation and land-use plan adopted Thursday, Sept. 3. Meeting virtually over Zoom, the Southern California Association of Governments, or SCAG, voted unanimously to approve its “Connect SoCal” plan, which among many other things seeks to encourage higher-density housing near jobs and mass transit ...

Aging power plants in Southern California won’t close as scheduled

California’s desire to phase out fossil fuels is apparently bigger than its ability to do so. Plans to shut down outdated gas-fired power generators this year in Huntington Beach, Long Beach, Redondo Beach and Oxnard are being postponed, with the state Water Resources Control Board voting 4-0 on Tuesday, Sept. 1, to endorse the move. It’s the final approval needed, with shutdowns to be delayed as long as three years beyond the original closure date of Dec. 31, 2020. The California Public Utiliti...

Police costs in Southern California: By the numbers

In raw, inflation-adjusted dollars, some Southern California cities more than doubled spending on law enforcement over a recent 16-year period, according to data examined by the Southern California News Group.

Lute Olson left an indelible legacy on Pac-12 and West Coast basketball

Dan Monson was at the beginning of his tenure as the head coach at Minnesota, and he encountered a dilemma. The top in-state recruit, McDonald’s All-American Rick Rickert, had just committed to Arizona. Usually, that means the kid’s recruitment is over, especially because Monson didn’t want to offend his Arizona counterpart, Lute Olson. But this recruiting battle was important for Monson’s new program, and he told Rickert that he was going to continue his efforts to woo him. Rickert relayed this...

Getting into a DMV office, because of the coronavirus, now requires your temperature to be taken

Q. Honk: During the pandemic I would have thought our California government offices would be following our governor’s guidance better. On Aug. 6, at the Costa Mesa Department of Motor Vehicles branch, there was no one at the door doing temperature checks on the customers who were entering. That certainly is not setting a good example during these pandemic-feared times! – Ted Ross, Huntington Beach A. Back in the day, when Honk carried a reporter’s notebook for a living instead of mostly playing ...

Guy invents mask gun to shoot masks onto anti-maskers' faces

Allen Pan decided to make a gun that would shoot a mask onto a maskless face. Unless it gets declared a Second Amendment matter, it may be a while until this medical weaponry gets regulatory approval. Because the Venn diagram of West Coast anti-maskers and anti-vaxxers has a high overlap, he took his invention to local idiot hotbed Huntington Beach, where he had mixed results in early field testing.

Heat wave brings threat of rolling blackouts

The heat wave baking Southern California is expected to last late into the week and could force as many as 3.3 million homes statewide to lose power during rolling blackouts Monday, state officials warned. The heat wave engulfing the West Coast created an energy shortage, according to the operator of the power grid. The California Independent System Operator says it will likely order utility companies to turn off power starting around 4 p.m. as demand for electricity to cool homes soars during t...

Charter schools sue California to get full funding for new year

Four charter schools, including one in Huntington Beach and another with a campus in San Bernardino, are suing the California Department of Education and state leaders over a funding formula they say cuts them off from essential state money. The four charters are among a number of schools in California that face financial problems because of what they claim is an unfair formula recently established by the state. Specifically, the schools expect their fall enrollment to exceed what they had in Fe...

When the confetti fell and the fireworks erupted, the three Southern California teenagers in MDC 3, a contemporary dance trio out of a Placentia dance studio, had just won the fourth season of NBC’s “World Of Dance.” Oh, and the $1 million prize that came with the title is also a nice chunk of change for the crew that includes Madison Smith, 17; Diego Pasillas, 17; and Emma Mather, 15. On a conference call Thursday, the day after “World Of Dance” aired its finale, the three dancers still felt th...

Cleveland Huntington Beach SOFT Premier Putters

Riddle me this, Batman: Just what is it that makes the new Cleveland Huntington Beach SOFT Premier putters premier? Is it price? Not really, they’re only a $30 upcharge from the newly revamped non-premier Huntington Beach SOFT line. Is it performance? Not likely. Once you look under the hood, there’s literally no difference in the putter heads themselves. Could it be value? It would seem that’s where Cleveland is hanging its hat. You can’t really call Cleveland’s double-barreled release this wee...

Focus on COVID might hamper state’s push against rising sea

The state will suffer dire long-term consequences if lawmakers set aside concerns about rising seas to focus solely on COVID-19, the non-partisan Legislative Analyst’s Office warned Monday. Sea level rise will likely put at least $8 billion in property underwater by 2050, and could affect tens of thousands of jobs and billions in gross domestic product, according to studies cited by the office. “Because the most severe effects of (sea level rise) likely will manifest decades in the future, takin...

After a hiatus on surf contests, pro surfers put on the jersey once again this weekend to compete – and while it wasn’t in the salt-water ocean like they are used to, a wave pool near farmland in Lemoore made for a competitive arena. The Michelob ULTRA Pure Gold Rumble At The Ranch on Sunday, Aug. 9, brought together 16 of the world’s best surfers, along with up-and-comers who got to showcase their skills, for the first contest held since earlier this year when the coronavirus pandemic shutdown ...

USC student leader resigns after she’s branded a ‘racist’ for supporting Zionism

Rose Ritch stepped down Wednesday, Aug. 5, from her position as vice president of the university’s Undergraduate Student Government after students launched what she called “an aggressive social media campaign to impeach my Zionist ass.” Zionism is a religious and pol...

Alexander: Terry Cannon was a baseball subversive, in the best of ways

If you believe in heaven, just know that it is a quirkier, more passionate and more creative place today. Terry Cannon, a librarian by occupation, a man of many and varied interests and the creator of what Jim Bouton called the “People’s Hall of Fame” in Pasadena’s Baseball Reliquary, lost his battle with bile duct cancer Saturday. He was 67. Baseball was only one of his interests, though the Reliquary and the companion Institute for Baseball Studies at Whittier College were the things for which...
