California’s job growth to dip from more robust years, report says

California’s economy is expected to add more than 300,000 jobs this year and in 2020, but that will fall well below some of the more robust growth years the state experienced over the last half-decade.

Southern California cities have already met their annual rainfall average, but more rain, snow on the way this week

Wave after wave of rainy storms have helped many Southern California cities reach — or even surpass — their annual rainfall average. “Most of our cities are getting about 100 percent of normal,” said Adam Roser, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. “And we’re expecting a quarter- to a half-inch of rain with this coming system, so a lot of places will hit their average by Friday.” That storm is to arrive Wednesday, Feb. 20, and go into Thursday.

Some Southern California mountain highways remain shut down for 3-day weekend, but repair work underway

Storm-damaged mountain highways in Riverside and San Bernardino counties remain closed and under repair Monday, frustrating skiers and snow-players on the three-day President’s Day weekend.

All of the highways were under repair Monday through multi-million dollar emergency contracts gra...

San Bernardino County shows cities how to respond to a terror attack, based on its own experience

Yes, recreational cannabis is legal. No, cannabis festivals aren’t thriving

More than 10,000 people are expected to pack a small high desert baseball stadium next month for what might be the first state-sanctioned cannabis festival in Southern California. Dope Cup High Desert, put on through a new partnership between High Times and Dope magazines, is taking advantage of a change in state law that allows marijuana festivals at any venue where local leaders have approved that use.

Can Los Angeles County homes be 62% more affordable than we think?

How do you make Los Angeles County homebuying appear 62 percent more affordable to a typical house hunter? Change the metric! First, let’s take “affordability” measures from the California Association of Realtors. The trade group produces two metrics that gauge how financially comfortable homebuying is — the widely discussed “traditional” measurement that assumes very conservative terms and a less-publicized yardstick for more generous borrowing by first-time buyer types. The Realtor’s “traditio...

What happened to gun sales after Parkland

With Thursday's one-year anniversary of the Parkland shooting that gripped America's attention, Democrats are reintroducing a bill to ban high-capacity gun magazines. If history is any guide and this bill garners substantive support, the debate over that measure -- like the discussions after shootings at Parkland, Sandy Hook and San Bernardino -- could increase gun sales.

Developer needed Tres Hermanos solar project to pay millions in debt, lawsuit alleges

The lead figure behind a failed solar farm on Tres Hermanos Ranch used promises of a big payday from the publicly funded project to stave off $3.5 million in personal debt, according to a new lawsuit filed against him by his wife’s family. William Barkett, a La Jolla-based developer, made loan payments via a company tied to the project and repeatedly reassured his in-laws that he would pay off the remainder once the solar deal was complete, the lawsuit alleges. Those assurances continued even af...

Those warnings about being prepared for snowy mountain roads? Some drivers just don’t listen

It happened again: Dozens of vehicles got stuck on local mountain roads over the weekend as many folks, some of them woefully unprepared, drove up to enjoy the pristine snow conditions. Although California Highway Patrol, Caltrans and other local agencies regularly take to social media and make other efforts to warn motorists about potentially hazardous driving conditions in the mountains after a winter storm, it seems many motorists don’t heed the advice when they make the trek up the mountain....
