Here’s why you should adopt a pet from an animal rescue

When you’re looking to adopt a new furry, scaly, feathered and/or hooved companion, an animal rescue is a great choice. Rescues generally pull the most at-risk animals from shelters, the streets or from owners who can no longer take care of them and give those animals a better chance at a brighter future. Finding a rescue is as easy as Googling “dog/cat/this-very-specific-kind-of-pot-bellied-pig rescue,” but what’s the best way to sort through the 87 bazillion results you’ll get? “Reputable resc...

Olympic beach volleyball: Jake Gibb, Tri Bourne among new pairings finding success

By JIMMY GOLEN AP Sports Writer TOKYO — Americans Jake Gibb and Tri Bourne got thrown together so quickly on the eve of the Tokyo Games they didn’t even have time to figure out the traditional post-point high-five that all beach volleyball teams do, with varying degrees of choreography. “I’ve learned to just leave the hand out there and let him do whatever he wants,” said Bourne, a former USC standout who flew to Japan eight days ago to replace Gibb’s original partner, Taylor Crabb, after he tes...

How Trader Joe’s unlikely story of success almost didn’t get told

Long before Trader Joe’s sold a buffet of fancy foreign cheeses, it had Brie. And Trader Joe’s had Brie first. The story of how the Southern California-based grocery chain cornered the market on gooey French cheese is just one of the tales told in Joe Coulombe’s business memoir, “Becoming Trader Joe: How I did Business My Way and Still Beat the Big Guys.” Coulombe, who grew up on an avocado farm in Del Mar, died in February 2020 at his Pasadena home at the age of 89. However, with author Patty C...

Rescued elegant tern chick nicknamed ‘Little Mike’ captures hearts of caretakers

One special baby bird has captured the hearts of its rescuers.

Olympic surfing 101: What to know for the sport’s debut into summer games

Forty surfers are about to make Olympic history, debuting the wave-riding sport for the first time in front of millions of viewers. More than most of the other 41 sports in the summer games, surfers will have the added drama of relying on Mother Nature to bring a wave of action for the athletes in the water. The unpredictability of the ocean can be a factor that makes or breaks a podium finish for the athletes, who are already at Tsurigasaki Beach in Japan warming up in the waters where the surf...

Orange County cities sue state over ‘erroneous’ homebuilding goals

Orange County cities sued the state housing department over its projected homebuilding requirements for the next decade, arguing the state agency grossly overestimated the number of new residences Southern California must plan for by 2030.

Imagine you’ve just published your first book. What do you picture? A luxe launch party with hundreds of guests and a champagne waterfall? Oscar-winning actors clamoring to adapt your work for the screen? An entrée into the ranks of the rich and famous – or at least a bank account flush enough to quit your day job? Those things can happen, but for the vast majority of writers, they don’t. In fact, many first-time authors have to carefully manage the expectations of their friends and family, lest...
