Using DNA tests, Dwight Manley found his birth father: L.A. politician Mike Antonovich

It only takes one look to spot their likeness. It’s there in the eyes. Blue. But the kind that can look green at certain times, the father and son say almost simultaneously. Blue is also both their favorite color. They only recently discovered that mutual personality trait. It hasn’t been a year since they learned of their relationship. A present given to Dwight Manley for Christmas 2017 unlocked the secret to his birth father. Now, they both get to celebrate Manley’s 53rd birthday this year. Th...

How DNA — and old-fashioned police work — led to arrest in 1973 cold-case murder of 11-year-old Linda O’Keefe

In those days, the cops who searched for the killer of the little girl in the Back Bay didn’t even have radios. “We were issued a gun and a holster – that’s it,” said Stan Bressler, a patrolman who walked the Newport Beach neighborhood looking for clues in July 1973. Almost 46 years later, Bressler was near tears as he listened to details of the state-of-the-art chemistry that led to an arrest in the case that he had never forgotten. Bressler had three teenage children in 1973. He has 34 grandch...

Encino residents allege backup beeps are hurting pets, will ask councilmember to investigate

Loud beeping noises emitted by larger vehicles when they go into reverse serve as a prudent safety warning for other drivers and pedestrians. But for pets, Encino residents allege, the often high-pitched sound is a cause for distress. The executive committee of Encino’s neighborhood council plans to ask City Councilmember Paul Koretz at its meeting Tuesday to investigate the issue and devise an ordinance prohibiting certain back-up beeps on the basis of animal rights. “Several large and regular ...

Billions pile up in special district accounts while critics say many should dissolve

California’s most affluent special districts nearly doubled their spending over the course of a decade, while the value of their cash and investments nearly tripled, according to a Southern California News Group analysis of state data. The figures revive the question many good-government advocates have been asking for decades: Do special districts, which operate largely under the public radar, simply have too much money? Critics say they do, and argue that their functions should be absorbed into...

Felony murder law repealed in California? Maybe not

Two young men drive up to a small corner grocery store in an inner city neighborhood and the driver remains at the wheel while his masked partner runs into the store, gun in hand, to commit a robbery.

Days later, thanks to an informant, police locate the two robbers, but each points to the other as the gunman and there’s no evidence to prove it either...
