Is violence coming to City Hall?

In recent months, several Southern California school boards have been forced to relocate or cancel their meetings because planned discussions about ethnic studies led to threats of violence.

What to do if dog pee is ruining your lawn

Q: My dogs leave yellow dead spots on the lawn where they pee. What can I do to keep this from happening?

If you know your dog’s favorite spot, water that area thoroughly and frequently to dilute the urine and wash it away. When you fertilize your lawn, don’t treat in the areas that your dog uses. Encourage him to drink more water. Not only is it healthier for him, but it also dilutes his urin...

Alexis DeJoria needs no reminder, nor does drag racing legend Del Worsham. DeJoria, 43, is the driver of the ROKiT/ABK Beer Toyota Camry and Worsham runs the Orange-based DC Motorsports team for which she drives, and they and their teammates are starting to hit their stride after a pandemic...
