6 Cities That Deserve Another Chance

Travel isn’t always rainbows and puppies. Sometimes bad things happen and sometimes we visit places that we don’t like. I know, I know, there’s something good to be found everywhere; except when you don’t want to find it. Usually when I don’t like a new city or destination it’s because I was in a bad mood or something rubbed me the wrong way. I’m a fairly temperamental person and when I decide I don’t like something, I tend to never deviate from that idea. So in a spirit of reconciliation, I be...

Former Pro Bowl linebacker Clay Matthews signs with Rams

After a decade spent in Green Bay, where his reign of terrorizing quarterbacks led to 83.5 sacks, six Pro Bowls and the 2010 NFL Defensive Player of the Year award, Clay Matthews will return home to Southern California, where he has signed a two-year deal to join the Rams. Matthews, who turns 33 before next season, adds a proven veteran to a pass rush that the Rams already fortified this offseason with the re-signing of Dante Fowler. But Matthews is no longer the dominant force on the edge he on...

After 22 horse deaths at Santa Anita, race cancellations have ‘devastated’ workers, jockeys

The home stretch and stands are empty at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, Calif., Thursday, March 7, 2019. Extensive testing of the dirt track is under way at eerily quiet Santa Anita, where the deaths of 21 thoroughbreds in two months has forced the indefinite cancellation of horse racing and thrown the workaday world of trainers, jockeys and horses into disarray.

House prices fell in Orange County last month, the only local market in the region to see declines, a report by the California Association of Realtors shows. But price gains remained tepid throughout Southern California, a possible sign the region’s 6 1/2-year streak of steadily increasing values could be over.

Aggressive Instagramming is ruining Southern California's super bloom

People trampled California's poppies for the 'gram, and ruined it for the rest of us. Fields of fiery "super bloom" poppies are lighting up the hills of Walker Canyon in Lake Elsinore, a city about halfway between Los Angeles and San Diego. Thanks to uncommonly heavy rains this winter, much of Southern California is seeing a massive burst of wildflower blooms across the state. The poppies in Walker Canyon are so lush, they can be seen from space. > Superbloom visible from space - Califor...

Radio: 88.5 FM program director Sky Daniels is retiring, and here’s what he’s planning to do next

“No, Bean and I are not forming a duo in U.K. radio,” joked former KCSN (88.5 FM) programmer Sky Daniels, referring to the news that half of KROQ’s Kevin and Bean morning team is leaving local radio and moving to England. But in a blow to both the local radio and local music scenes, Daniels is leaving as well, making the decision to retire. “I thought I was retiring in 2011,” Daniels told me. “I had been dealing with some health issues related to Crohn’s Disease and the related medications for 1...

Super bloom chaos in California

When news of a possible super bloom in Southern California was announced earlier this year, some towns, such as Borrego Springs near Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, geared up for mayhem. During the last super bloom in 2017, the town was overwhelmed by an estimated 500,000 flower-peepers, so this year it ordered dozens of portable toilets and dumpsters and took measures to reduce traffic buildup and parking issues. The town of Lake Elsinore, California, however, was not as prepared for the in...

Disneyland’s $199 peak daily ticket has been topped: Which park is most expensive now?

How much is too much to pay for a day at a theme park? Is $200 too much?

With South Bay Lakers, NBA vet Spencer Hawes wants to prove he won’t quit

During his one campaign with the Clippers four years ago, Spencer Hawes found the place that he now calls his second home: the South Bay. The 7-foot-1 center and Seattle native was smitten with the sunshine and laid back vibe – enough so that he bought a multimillion-dollar property in Manhattan Beach. It’s tempting to imagine the cushy transition for Hawes, who has been working out in Seattle since he last played NBA ball in 2017, returning to his posh beach house in Southern California as he e...
