E-scooters, dockless bicycles gaining foothold in Southern California as LA County drops orders to remove them

Like Uber and Lyft before them, the latest Silicon Valley startups also showed up uninvited, dropping electric scooters, battery-powered bicycles and other dockless, micro-mobile rentals onto streets and sidewalks of Southern California. The guerrilla marketing strategy aimed at busting the monopoly of the single-passenger car created multiple battlefronts in today’s “Scooter Wars,” sending some cities to the courts claiming they are a nuisance and an eyesore, and others writing regulations that...

Styx kicks off City National Grove of Anaheim’s 20th anniversary celebration

On Sept. 4, 1999, rock band Styx became the first group to grace the stage at City National Grove of Anaheim, then known as The Sun Theatre. The yellow and tan-colored, multi-use entertainment venue, located off Katella Avenue in between Disneyland and Honda Center, is easy to spot with its giant branded water tower. The building along the northern edge of the Angel Stadium parking lot had briefly served as an awards show-themed restaurant, Tinseltown Studios, in 1998 but the concept failed to t...

25 years after the Northridge earthquake, another one could hit ‘any time.’ Are we safer?

A quarter century has passed, but David Miller will never forget the sound. “It was like there was a freight train under my house,” he said, recalling the moment 25 years ago Thursday, Jan. 17, when the Earth’s plates suddenly slipped along a previously unknown fault 11 miles beneath his Prairie Street home in Northridge. Firefighters work to free trapped residents at the Northridge Meadows Apartments on Reseda Blvd in Northridge CA. (Los Angeles Daily News/SCNG) Firefighters examine the ...

How a group of guys from Moscow became an internationally renowned Chicago tribute band

Leonid Vorobyev says he loved the music of Chicago since the first time he heard the band as a teenager in Russia more than 40 years ago. A choir conductor by training, he’d also played in a handful of casual rock bands and spent 25 years as a recording studio sound engineer, too. So four years ago when Vorobyev approached 60, the age of retirement in Russia, he decided to celebrate by bringing together all the art and craft he’d worked so hard to master and make the best cover of a Chicago song...

Renee Moilanen: The weight of the world on our kid’s shoulders

As much as I support the idea of children walking to school, I cringe every time my third-grade son hefts his gargantuan bookbag onto his shoulders and trudges hunchbacked toward campus. Loaded up with his required laptop, lunchbox and textbooks, my son’s bookbag weighs 14 pounds. That’s nearly 25 percent of his body weight, a hefty addition on his half-mile trek to school, which is – I swear I’m not exaggerating – uphill both ways. If I had to haul an extra 30 pounds on my back to get to work, ...

Senior Living: Wising up to family members with dementia who wander

By David W. Hart, Ph.D. Contributing writer Like many of you following her story, I was heartbroken to read that Nancy Paulikas’ remains were found on a burned hillside near Sherman Oaks last month. I knew Nancy – a Manhattan Beach resident diagnosed with young onset dementia – and her husband, Kirk, before Nancy wandered away from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art over two years ago. I want to express my deepest condolences to the entire family. I also dedicate this column to Nancy, and trus...

Metro train closures will affect more than 100K daily riders in Long Beach, South Bay and downtown Los Angeles

Watts resident Lexi Casas, 17, takes the Blue Line to her hostess job at a restaurant in Belmont Shore. On Friday, while waiting for a southbound train at the Willowbrook/Rosa Parks Station in South Los Angeles, she was surprised to learn the heavily used line will be closed for upgrades starting Jan. 26 for two, four-month periods. Instead of a one-seat ride, Casas must exit halfway through and board a shuttle bus to reach her workplace in Long Beach. So, like others, she’s considering taking t...

Renee Moilanen: Embracing the lines of middle age

I’ve never understood why so many women subject themselves to scalpels and skin peels, toxic injections and sutures, all in the vain attempt to look younger. Why can’t we embrace the lines on our skin as testaments to experience and our bodies as beautiful vessels that have carried and nursed life, toted toddlers and toiled? Why do we spend nearly $17 billion a year on cosmetic procedures, everything from breast enlargements and facelifts to Botox injections and chemical peels? For years, I scof...

2018 offers a look at 10 ways Southern California’s coast is changing

Southern California’s coastline has been changing since it was part of the Pangaea supercontinent 300 million years ago, sometimes slowly and sometimes suddenly. The past year offered hints that changes of the past half century may be accelerating. Nature’s changing face, human development and efforts to make peace between the two can be startling at times. Here are 10 ways the past year has been significant. Sea-level rise December tides and waves dismantled a Capistrano Beach boardwalk in so...

Offset showed up at Cardi B’s performance at Rolling Loud, and she wasn’t pleased

Rapper Cardi B’s set on the second day of Rolling Loud in Los Angeles was interrupted when her estranged husband Offset unexpectedly got on stage and asked her to take him back, shocking both the rapper and her fans.

How the Queen Mary became a mini music festival hot spot in 2018

During its three decades at sea, the Queen Mary made 1,001 transatlantic crossings before it was permanently moored in Long Beach in 1967. But there was no quiet, laid-back retirement ahead for the vessel. Since its arrival more than 50 years ago, the ship has been a busy events venue and hotel, hosting dozens of concerts through the years as well as annual events such as Christmas-themed happenings and Dark Harbor during Halloween. And now things have stepped up even more thanks to a year-old p...
