California a first-time homebuyer’s nightmare

How hard is it for a first-time house hunter to succeed in the Golden State? Well, five metros in California topped the list of the areas most out of reach: Los Angeles-Orange County, where homes were 12.1 times the median first-time buyer income, followed by San Diego (8.6), San Jose (7.9), San Francisco (7.4) and Sacramento (6.8). NerdWallet’s third quarterly report analyzing affordability for first-time buyers shows no relief for those trying to squeeze into a market that continues to be char...

Every year around this time, as San Bernardino County collectively mourns the 14 men and women killed Dec. 2, 2015, in a terrorist attack at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, Robert Velasco can’t help but wonder if there ever will come a time when people forget his youngest daughter’s name.

November coronavirus surge a ‘train wreck in slow motion’

As the coronavirus pandemic took a steep turn for the worse in November, several Southern California counties ended the month with record numbers of cases and hospitalizations, and deaths have begun to increase in some areas as well. The increase in cases was “unlike anything we have seen since July when the mask mandates went into effect,” said Brandon Brown, an epidemiologist at UC Riverside. “Since we are transitioning into the colder months when more people will be congregating inside with p...

Untethered from the office, urban tenants are flocking to the Inland Empire

Prophetess Branchcomb called her home office “my piece of paradise” before the coronavirus pandemic hit. But after shelter-in-place orders forced her husband and kids to study and work from home, their 2,000-square-foot rental house in Cerritos felt more like a tiny box. “Everyone else came home and took my piece of paradise,” said Branchcomb, finance director for a Hollywood entertainment company. “We needed more space.” On Saturday, Nov. 21, Branchcomb and her family of five moved to a house ...

It wasn’t. Over the next few chaotic hours, photographers documented the scene as emergency workers whisked people to safety, victims consoled one another and law officers searched for the assailants. Later, two terrorists were killed in a dramatic shootout with authorities. In the following days, phot...

5 years since San Bernardino terrorist attack haven’t erased families’ pain

Five years after the San Bernardino terrorist attack, Tina Meins no longer cries every day for her father. Jolene Verdehyou is able to freely talk about losing her mom. And Robert Velasco is no longer haunted by questions about whether he could have done something to save his daughter. But that doesn’t mean the pain is gone. Or any less. “It still feels very raw,” Meins said of the mass shooting that took the life of her dad, Damian Meins. “Sometimes it feels like it’s been five years and someti...

5 years after San Bernardino terrorist attack, unfinished business in courts and capitols

Five years after the Dec. 2, 2015, terrorist attack in San Bernardino, the survivors and the families of the 14 people killed are finally receiving some measure of justice as the court cases borne out of the investigation wind down.

What ‘San Bernardino Strong’ means 5 years after San Bernardino terrorist attack

The grief and anger that people felt immediately after the Dec. 2, 2015, terrorist attack in San Bernardino soon crystalized into resolve. Residents and leaders declared that the tragedy wouldn’t define the city. Instead, they would be “San Bernardino Strong.” But five years after the attack, the city’s advocates have different ideas about exactly what has changed, and why. “People came together for that brief moment,” said Michael Segura, who became involved in local activism shortly before the...

Six Southern California areas to explore nature instead of shopping on Black Friday

Here’s something to be thankful for: Southern California is filled with outdoor sanctuaries to discover, tucked away trails that range from easy strolls in urban parks hidden from busy streets to challenging hikes in the vast wilderness, all of which will help burn off some of the calories consumed during Thanksgiving dinner. Already, there’s been a trend in seeking out the great outdoors rather than be a part of the Black Friday shopping rush, but even more so this year as nature remains one of...

The pandemic Thanksgiving: Gratitude, hope endure amid a thankless year in Southern California

Infection rates. Drive-thru testing centers. Hospitalizations, ventilators and intensive-care units. It’s a very different sort of holiday season for Southern California. Welcome to the pandemic Thanksgiving. This is the year our leaders asked us not to travel, dine away from home or gather in big groups — essentially, Thanksgiving’s tentpoles. So for many, that seat at the table for a beloved mom, a treasured uncle, a lifelong friend, a revered grandma … is empty this year. The months-long coro...

Seriously late California mortgages jump 6-fold

Skipped mortgage payments across California are jumping to levels not seen since the mortgage mess surrounding the Great Recession. Should we be very worried about a pandemic-burdened economy’s hit to bill-paying abilities? Let’s start with a few numbers from mortgage tracker CoreLogic and its measure of “seriously delinquent” home loans in August — those with 90 days or more of late payments. Statewide, 3.8% of home loans were in deep trouble compared with 0.6% a year earlier. Yes, that’s a six...

Thanksgiving anything but normal as coronavirus cases surge

Kate Parent simply did not have the heart to cancel Thanksgiving this year.

This year, the coronavirus pandemic, which is ripping through Southern Califor...

Southern California still 639,300 jobs short of pre-coronavirus employment

Southern California bosses added 141,000 jobs in October but ongoing pandemic-linked business limitations leave the region 639,300 workers short of pre-coronavirus employment.
