Triple-digit heat wave continues in Southern California

LOS ANGELES — Summer may be coming to an end, but a mid-summer-like blast of heat is hitting Southern California on Wednesday, and it will persist into Thursday before a cooling trend begins. A heat advisory issued by the National Weather Service will be in effect until 8 p.m. Wednesday in the San Fernando Valley, with temperatures of up to 105 degrees expected.

CSUN interim men’s basketball coach Trent Johnson has his work cut out for him

A lot has changed since 2001. That’s the last time Trent Johnson was in The Matadome at Cal State Northridge.

Why do some talk radio hosts get to hawk their own books on-air?

This week, you had some questions, and I have some answers: “When I started listening to talk radio in the ’80s, it was unheard of for the radio hosts to hawk their books on the air. Now they all do it to some degree. Why do the syndicators allow that? Is that part of the hosts’ compensation? And why do the affiliates put up with it?” — Judd Silver An unfortunate side-effect of the modern radio model is a singular focus on easy money. Since it takes time to develop a program, let alone a full fo...

How to fertilize trees after mulching and tips for old wood chips

Q: If I place mulch around trees, how can I fertilize them around the dripline? Isn’t the mulch in the way? A: When we talk about watering and fertilizing at or around the dripline of a tree, we are talking about the edge of the area that is underneath the tree’s canopy. As the tree grows and spreads, the dripline moves further away from the trunk. Watering and fertilizing at the dripline encourages the roots to spread outward, expanding the root system and making it stronger. Ideally, you shoul...

‘Bite-Sized’ LA County Fair has heaps of small pleasures

Modesty is not a virtue we associate with the LA County Fair, which ballyhoos itself as one of the largest county fairs in North America. But Pomona’s first fair in two years is a fraction of the old size and isn’t even considered a full-fledged LA County Fair. Instead, it’s the Bite-Sized Fair, a kind of sampler platter of the fair’s best. It’s designed as an appetizer to tide us over until May 2022, when the fair is due to return with its usual buffet of offerings. “It’s a mini version of the ...

Gavin Newsom on Tuesday, offering Newsom at least another year in office and Democrats a potential playbook to beat Republicans if they back Trump-style ideals and politicians in future elections.

By 9 p.m., the Associated Press and other media organizations called the ...
