Summer heat will return after brief monsoonal thunderstorms across Southern California

Stormy weather that brought spurts of rain to the region, and even some scattered thunder, surprised parts of Southern California early Monday. But residents shouldn’t count on relief from the heat lasting all that long. Forecasters with the National Weather Service said they expect higher temperatures to return as soon as Tuesday. “There will be some warming tomorrow with some areas up to 5 degrees (Fahrenheit) above normal through mid-week,” said Curt Kaplan, a meteorologist in the Los Angeles...

Deadline looms for $540 million in funding for light-rail to Montclair

Legislators and city council members from western San Bernardino County and the San Gabriel Valley who’ve been pushing to receive gap funding to complete extension of the LA Metro light-rail to Montclair are stuck in a waiting game. Leaders say the $540 million award from the state to fund the last leg of the project from Pomona to Claremont and Montclair is a perfect fit. First, because the project is “shovel ready” and second, it matches Gov. Gavin Newsom’s desire to spend part of a whopping $...

Southern California would be back in purple, red tiers if old color-coded system still existed

California has come a long way in the battle against COVID-19. But maybe not as far as many think. Case rates have risen enough in recent weeks that if the state’s old four-color tier system were still in place, Los Angeles County could have just moved into the most restrictive purple tier, where Southern California spent the darkest days of the pandemic, while Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino counties would likely now be in the second-most restrictive red tier, according to state data updat...

Record drought in western U.S. means elevated fire risk in Southern California

While Southern California has been spared the worst impacts of the drought so far this year, the region’s vulnerability to wildfires and water shortages is expected to grow in the coming months — and decades. The western United States is experiencing its most extensive drought on record, with 89% of the region in a drought and 57% getting an “extreme” or “exceptional” designation from the National Integrated Drought Information System, a multi-agency entity led by NOAA, the National Oceanic and ...

Thieves are stealing California’s scarce water. Where’s it going? Illegal marijuana farms

One day last spring, water pressure in pipelines suddenly crashed In the Antelope Valley, setting off alarms. Demand had inexplicably spiked, swelling to three and half times normal. Water mains broke open, and storage tanks were drawn down to dangerous levels. The emergency was so dire in the water-stressed desert area of Hi Vista, between Los Angeles and Mojave, that county health officials considered ordering residents to boil their tap water before drinking it. “We said, ‘Holy ...

More about North Hollywood, Fonzie and the Rolling Stones

My column about escaping the Inland Empire to spend the Fourth of July weekend housesitting at a friend’s place in North Hollywood drew a few comments, including about the 1926 El Portal Theater. “I grew up in North Hollywood. Nice to see something written about it,” reader Barry Beck says by email. “As I started reading your column, I wondered, is he going to mention the El Portal?” Good thing I included it. I’d hate to let a reader down. Beck continues: “My first-ever date was at the El Portal...

How worried should you be about the recent rise in coronavirus cases? Here’s what to know

More than a year into the coronavirus pandemic, plenty of questions still linger about the virus’s spread and what it means for Southern California residents. That point was emphasized on Thursday, July 15, when Los Angeles County health officials announced that people will once more be required to wear masks indoors, regardless of vaccination status. The first full day the reimposed mandate will be in effect is Sunday, July 18. Orange, San Bernardino and Riverside counties — and Pasadena, which...

Why do freeway rest stops take so many breaks?

Q. How about asking Caltrans why it can’t keep the rest stops on the I-15 and the I-40 open? Is this some stupid money-saving stunt? It seems there is always one closed on each freeway. What is mystifying is that when they are closed for repairs, there is never anyone repairing anything. They are closed off, on both sides of the freeway, and deserted. And they stay closed off for at least a week. I can’t figure it out. Hopefully you will have better luck! – Clyde Boyd, Yucaipa A. Honkland reside...

Long-serving Inland Empire Republican Rep. Jerry Lewis dies

He was 86. His death was announced in a statement by California Republican Rep. Ken Calvert, who said on his website that Lewis “made an enormous impact on his district, the state of California and our nation.” Calvert said that “if ...

Southern California coronavirus cases, hospitalizations climb in month since reopening

LA Mayor Eric Garcetti makes pitch for light-rail extension to Montclair

On the heels of his nomination as U.S. ambassador to India, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti traveled east, that is, the eastern edge of the county, to push a favorite domestic project — extension of LA Metro light-rail to Montclair. Garcetti literally stood on victorious ground Tuesday, July 13, at the future La Verne station where a year ago shovels pierced the earth for the $2.16 billion Glendora-to-Montclair extension of the Gold Line, now called the L Line, a project funded by Measure M, the...

What will come first? More electric cars on California’s roadways or additional electric vehicle chargers? This chicken-and-egg problem has plagued the changeover from gasoline-powered to electric passenger cars, which according to a goal set by Gov. Gavin Newsom, is supposed to be completed by 2035 as a way to reduce smog that causes health problems and greenhouse gases that bring about global climate change. Southern California Edison announced a plan Monday, July 12, to exponentially multiply...
