Cop’s call as to whether you get cited for not having a front license plate

Q. I just got a fix-it ticket from the California Highway Patrol on the 73 for not having a front license plate. The front of my car, a 2013 Chrysler 300 SRT, did not have a mount for a front plate. Right after getting the ticket, I saw more than five vehicles without front license plates within a two-mile stretch. I went to my car dealership and it graciously put the plate on. I wasn’t looking forward to defacing my car’s front look. Everyone knows that thousands of cars in our area are driving...

Red King wins Del Mar Handicap to punch ticket to Breeders’ Cup

Red King, a 6-year-old son of English Channel, earned an all-expenses paid berth into the turf division of November’s Breeders’ Cup by holding off a late charge by 3-5 favorite United in the $200,000 Grade II Del Mar Handicap on Saturday. Ridden by the meet’s leading jockey, Umberto Rispoli, and trained by Philip D’Amato, Red King made a huge move approaching the final turn and held off an onrushing United to win by a head as the 4-1 second choice. The victory was D’Amato’s fourth consecutive in...

Trump's public embrace of QAnon was the culmination of years of waiting, and will likely drive the conspiracy movement to new extremes

President Donald Trump's public embrace of the QAnon conspiracy theory movement on Wednesday surprised many. It was in fact a long time coming — Trump has dabbled with the movement hundreds of times before, though never so explicitly. QAnon advocates have already been implicated in terrorist schemes, arson attacks, and kidnapping plots. Trump's praise will likely embolden them further. Visit Business Insider's home page for more stories. When President Trump praised QAnon followers as "people...

Some Southern California barbers, salon owners defy state health orders and open indoors

Hair salons and barbershops throughout Southern California — including in Gardena, Claremont and south Orange County — joined potentially hundreds of others throughout the state in defying coronavirus health orders on Monday, Aug. 17, by welcoming customers inside. Salon owners across faced stiff fines or other consequences on Monday when they decided to open their doors to customers, despite bans on doing so in counties on the state’s COVID-19 watch list, which health officials have said are me...

Chad and JT’s excellent adventure: Comics make viral video about Surf City’s ‘mask shortage’

In a YouTube video currently making gnarly waves, two surfer dudes stroll around the pier plaza offering complimentary face masks. “We’re here in Huntington Beach to solve the mask shortage,” explains the blond guy (as opposed to brunet guy). “As you can see, no one here has a mask, but we brought our own supply to fix the problem.” Just a few days after its release, the five-minute caper has already snagged more than 4 million views.

School names latest target in effort to account for racist legacies of historical figures

Michael Chwe was surprised – and motivated to act. The UCLA economics professor received his bachelor’s degree from the California Institute of Technology, in Pasadena, and remembers well the reverence for Robert A. Millikan, a renowned physicist and the university’s first president, around campus. The Nobel Prize recipient, Chwe said, represented a sort of demigod. But then, the current racial justice movement sprang up, in the wake of the Memorial Day killing of George Floyd. And Chwe, through...

Horse racing: Red King takes San Juan Capistrano Stakes at Santa Anita

It took a year, but trainer Philip D’Amato’s $35,000 investment in February 2019 paid dividends on closing day of Santa Anita’s spring meet on Sunday. Red King, claimed by D’Amato last year at Santa Anita with hopes he would win the marathon San Juan Capistrano Stakes with the 6-year-old son of English Channel, finished third in the 1 3/4-mile turf race last year, but he got the job done one year later. Although Red King let him down last year, D’Amato still won the $100,000 Grade III event with...

Inattentive Oshkosh Migrants Will Find No EAA Roosts at Wittman in July 2020

SM Spangler It is a statistical reality that regardless of the methods of dissemination, roughly 10 percent of the population will not get the word. Or they will forget they got the word and reflexively follow their atavistic inclinations. Some creatures, like the swallows who migrate to San Juan Capistrano every spring from their winter residences in Argentina, don’t have a choice because conscious decision making is probably not among their sentient capabilities. Pilots don’t have this excuse...

Southern California Democrats vote via proxies under new House rules; Republicans sue

More than a dozen House members from Southern California took advantage this week of a new rule that allows them to vote on legislation remotely, through proxies, for the first time in history. The House of Representatives, in a party-line vote, this month approved the Democrat-backed temporary rule change so members could get back to work without causing a spike in coronavirus cases, as public health officials encourage Americans to avoid flying and to work from home if they can. The remote vot...

California GOP Lawmaker Loses Duties After Harassment Found

SACRAMENTO, Calif.
