Is California's PG&E The First Climate Change Bankruptcy?

Calling it "a climate change casualty," one Forbes contributor notes that PG&E's stock has now lost 90% of its mid-October value after a giant November wildfire, adding that "Future investors will look back on these three months as a turning point, an...

Charter schools were once LAUSD’s ‘incubators.’ Now, they’re the competition.

While tens of thousands Los Angeles Unified School District teachers marched through Grand Park on Friday, two miles away, students inside small red and white bungalows kept working. It was a normal day for the Alliance Dr. Olga Mohan High School, a charter school that’s nestled under a tangle of freeways in downtown Los Angeles. Charter schools like Alliance aren’t part of LAUSD. Though the district approved its charter in 2004, it operates with its own board. So students have largely been insu...

Sometimes, it is difficult to stay in your lane

Q. I am a retired firefighter of 34 years, and for 25 of those years I was on a paramedic unit and drove lights-and-siren as much or more than anyone at the time. I consider myself a cautious driver. On Christmas day we were driving down to San Diego on the I-5 Freeway. It was about 10:30 a.m. and raining. We were just passing where Highway 1 intersects the I-5, and the freeway lanes disappeared. The road in that area has the current striping; the old striping that Caltrans removed, but with the...

Glen Wood, the stock car racing pride of Virginia, scored 99 NASCAR Cup wins in a career that started in 1950.

Betty Buckley relishes starring in ‘Hello, Dolly!’ which comes to Southern California for 4 weeks

Not just anyone can step into the role of fast-talking, charismatic agent of ardor, Dolly Gallagher Levi from Thornton Wilder’s “The Matchmaker.” It became a classic musical in 1964 when “Hello, Dolly!”, starring the late Carol Channing, premiered on Broadway. Pearl Bailey took over the role, and in 1969 Barbra Streisand immortalized it on the big screen. And then there’s Bette Midler, a natural fit for brassy Dolly, who owned the part in the 2017 Broadway revival, winning one of the show’s four...

After days of downpours, a final push for storm systems moving through Southern California

After days of downpours, the final round in a series of storms that have drenched Southern California caused rock slides and flooding and other problems Thursday, prompting several water rescues, snarling traffic and causing some injuries. But the extended run of wet weather also has helped to replenish the region’s water supplies, bathing the soil and vegetation in hills and canyons. The storm systems have brought impressive rainfall totals, with some Orange County cities, for example, seeing m...

25 years later, local leaders gather to share lessons learned after Northridge quake

When the Jan. 17 1994 Northridge earthquake shook his home, Cary Van Ausdall didn’t have much time to assess damage to his Santa Clarita house. Instead, as a Red Cross volunteer, he raced out assist residents impacted by the disaster. The 25th anniversary of the devastating earthquake, he said, is a reminder that the city should be prepared for the next big one. “Being prepared will get you an opportunity to sleep at night,” he said. Ausdall joined local leaders at California State University, N...

California sees its first home sales drop in four years

California’s housing market ended 2018 on a down note, with sales for 2018 as a whole down for the first time in four years and home price gains showing signs of leveling off, Realtor economists reported Thursday, Jan. 17. A volatile stock market and political and economic uncertainty contributed to the market slowdown, according to the California Association of Realtors. But the main culprit was fewer buyers able to afford a home. “California’s housing market in 2018 was hindered by endlessly r...

Who could benefit when biggest utility falls apart?

If there’s one classic line in the controversial movie “Vice,” it probably comes early in the film, when then-Vice President Richard Cheney is portrayed thinking about the World Trade Center attacks of 9-11 as “an opportunity,” rather than a tragedy. So it might be today in California, where tragedies partly of its own making afflict the state’s largest utility, whose chief executive has left the firm just when it says it will declare bankruptcy. Pacific Gas & Electric Co. faces as much as $29 b...

How much snow did the storm bring to Southern California mountains?

At local mountains, where snowfall was plentiful at the start of the week, raindrops started falling from the sky Thursday. It’s not the best news for those planning on hitting the slopes, as the rain turns the snow to mush. But there’s a bright side to all this wet stuff: For lakes that have suffered from low levels in recent years, it means reservoirs are filling up. Around the state, snowpacks are near normal levels and local rain totals have surpassed what’s expected this time of year. And w...
