NHRA brings another twist to the four-wide track this weekend

In 2009, NHRA introduced a new style of drag racing – four wide – at zMax Dragway at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Rather than the traditional two participants in a side-by-side battle, the sanctioning body added two more entrants. While racers were uncertain of the format, it has since become a staple and another four-wide event was added in 2018 at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Both tracks are part of the O. Bruton Smith inventory of tracks that include Bristol and Sonoma. There will be a...

Los Angeles measles 'cluster' reported, officials say LAX and UCLA possible exposure sites

Los Angeles County public health officials are urging people who have not been fully immunized against measles to contact their healthcare provider to get the vaccine immediately.

Like a Local: Long Beach

Read the full article on at - Like a Local: Long Beach Many of you probably associate Long Beach, California with the iconic Queen Mary. The ship has actually been in the harbor since 1967. And yes, every year more than a 1.5 million people come and visit it. But as many Southern Californians know (as do a growing number of visitors), there’s much more to Long Beach than a historic...

Police agencies forfeit millions after new law chokes off funds from asset seizures

Jewels worth $7.2 million were seized in Los Angeles. Fine art worth $4.1 million was seized in Signal Hill. U.S. currency totaling $30.8 million was seized in Beverly Hills.

Coachella love: These couples talk first kisses, surprise proposals and romance at the festival

Dennis Alonzo and Mylan Truong Alonzo’s love story sounds like something out of a romantic comedy. Flash back to 2015: Both happened to attend the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival with friends who had extra passes. Dennis, an actor and writer, had just moved to Los Angeles from Ohio a few weeks before. Mylan was living in Sacramento. The meet-cute moment happened when they ended up at the same Airbnb. Friendship soon turned into a relationship, which turned into marriage. Now, Dennis is ...

Coachella Security Guards Allege Inhumane Treatment: ‘People Over Here Are Starving’

Matt Winkelmeyer/GettyEvery year, music lovers and miscellaneous basics flood Indio, California, for the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. Coachella is known for its huge headlining artists and general aura of douchebaggery—the stereotypical festival-goer is a rich kid sporting a headdress and a fanny pack, scouring the desert for good times and even better Instagram opportunities. Of course, these highly mocked caricatures only make up part of the story. The festival is also populated w...

Finding the money to fix and modernize Southern California’s interstates

America’s interstate highways are aging and inadequate — and need to be replaced. That’s the conclusion of a major study, requested by Congress, and released last December by the well-respected Transportation Research Board. This expert study estimated that if rebuilding projects were carried out conventionally, it would cost Americans $57 billion per year for the next two decades. Even worse news: At that slow pace of reconstruction, by 2040 pavement conditions and traffic congestion would actu...

Endangered wetlands offer vital wildlife habitat and, often, a reason to fight about coastal development

Between Southern California’s popular beaches and much-traversed mountain trails lies an unsung natural landscape, teeming with its own special wildlife. As you head outdoors to celebrate Earth Day weekend — or to simply connect with nature and leave behind the anxieties of urban life — one option is our area’s often overlooked coastal wetlands. In Orange and Los Angeles counties, more than 90 percent of the estuaries, lagoons and other coastal waters that existed in the 19th century have been l...

West Coast utilities to figure out how to charge electric big rigs from Mexico to Canada

Thirty-three utilities from three West Coast states have launched a study to assess what it would take to install electric charging stations along the 5 Freeway for long-haul trucks traveling between the Mexican and Canadian borders, they announced Thursday. Although battery-powered medium- and heavy-duty trucks have barely begun on-road service in a few states, many manufacturers are testing additional prototypes that could expand their reach in one or two years, experts say. The largest utilit...

5G is going to let even more devices go wireless, but cities are grappling with the roll out

You may not think much about the small elongated cylinders or boxes perched on rooftops or street lights. But those small wireless facilities, dubbed “small cells,” are the building blocks for 5G, an ultra-fast wireless technology that will quicken the things you do on your cellphone and unleash a new generation of devices. A mini cell tower sits atop a pole in the 20600 block of Laguna Canyon Road on April 18, 2019, in Laguna Beach, CA.. (Photo by Jeff Gritchen, Orange County Register/SCNG)...

PASSCAR Stock Car Series, IMCA Modifieds finally running at Perris

Want rain? If the answer is yes, schedule PASSCAR Super Stocks, Street Stocks, American Factory Stocks and the IMCA Modifieds.

JetBlue Gives Back 10 Long Beach Slots But It’s Southwest That Might Suffer

The writing was on the wall when Long Beach changed its slot utilization rules last year. Unless JetBlue ramped up significantly, slots were going to have to be given back to the city. Sure enough, that time has come. JetBlue is giving up 10 of its current 34 slots. It’s expected that this is good news for those who like to fly Southwest, but oddly enough, the opposite may be true. It all hinges on… Delta. The Slot Math I don’t need to go into the long history of slots and air servi...

Scientists give another reason to scorn plastics: They emit greenhouse gases

Clogging landfills, trashing beaches and fouling the oceans — in part via a massive junk ball off the coast — have been key reasons for the war on plastic bags, straws and bottles. Now, a researcher from UC Santa Barbara has added one more: They make the planet warmer. In one of the first-ever evaluations of greenhouse gas emissions from plastics, Professor Sangwon Suh found that production and post-use of plastics — including composting and recycling — emit a substantial amount of carbon dioxid...

Mother accused in Trinity Love Jones’ murder was visited by social workers in 2011 after alleged abuse, neglect; case was closed

The report includes an allegation of sexual abuse because Taquesta Graham was a registered sex offender, said Michelle Vega, public affairs director for DCFS. She said DCFS found the sexual a...

Port of L.A., Long Beach study provides a snapshot of evolving clean air technology

The ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach still face barriers over the next couple of years to putting more clean-energy cargo trucks out on the streets, said an informational report released this month. The technology for zero-emissions and near-zero-emissions trucks continues progressing quickly, but the infrastructure to support it — such as charging stations at the ports — remains a barrier over the next couple of years. “It appears highly unlikely, if not impossible, to develop the full charg...
