This former Doctor Who takes on ‘Game of Thrones’ star Maisie Williams in home invasion thriller

Sylvester McCoy was so delighted by the nefarious side of his character in the darkly comedic thriller “The Owners” that he could scarcely wait to slip free of his mild-mannered facade when the shoot began. “I wanted to get to the nasty part really quickly,” McCoy says by phone from his home “up a mountain in a medieval village” in France recently. “But Julius (Berg), the director, kept saying, ‘Hold back, not yet.’” In “The Owners,” the 77-year-old McCoy plays Dr. Huggins, an elderly practition...

For MLB broadcasters, road games in 2020 could be out of the park

The Angels were playing the A’s in Oakland on the afternoon of June 8, 2008. The score was tied 3-3 in the 12th inning when something happened to forever sear a benign Sunday game in the memory of Jose Mota. Mota was sitting in the KWKW (1330-AM) radio studio in Hollywood. That season, the Angels’ Spanish-language broadcasters did not travel with the team to road games. Mota was grounded. He followed the game with one eye on a television monitor. His computer screen showed MLB’s Gameday feed. Hi...

Sunny and warm: Southern California weather’s consistency is one constant

Living just a few miles from where yet another wildfire is burning in the Saddleback Mountains, I get little solace from the fact that Southern California’s weather is all-too predictable. The region had the nation’s smallest margin of day-to-day change in their weather last year, my trusty spreadsheet tells me.  The fact that, mathematically speaking, we live with the most predictable weather in America could sound appealing, at first blush.

Sweltering temperatures, high surf forecast for Southern California after July 4th holiday

As hundreds maybe even thousands flock to Southern California beaches to escape triple-digit temperatures, meteorologists and rescuers say a high surf warning could keep people out of the water. “We are expecting high surf between 8 and 11 feet for south-facing beaches including Long Beach, Zuma, and Port Hueneme,” said Keily Delerme with the National Weather Service’s Oxnard office. The hazardous beach conditions are anticipated to create ocean currents that can pull swimmers and surfers out to...

Are you taking from tidepools? In Marine Protected Areas, volunteers track bad behavior at the beach

You can look –  just leave it where you found it. Don’t take the fish — or other sea creatures — in Marine Protected Areas. Don’t even slip a shell into your beach bag.

These 7 night fishing spots will hook you on angling under the stars

Long after the sun has set, Southern Californians can still cast their lines into the dark water in hopes of hooking their next catch. Fishing under the stars is a favorite pastime during summer months, and after-hours anglers have plenty of locations to choose from. Whether finding a spot on a pier or along the shoreline of a lake or beach, part of the appeal, said Wil Fitzpatrick, co-owner of Wil’s Sports & Tackle in Monrovia, is the atmosphere.
