What it was like to see Andrew McMahon perform a concert to socially distanced fans at Drive-In OC

“So, is it weird, or is it cool out there?” singer-songwriter Andrew McMahon asked the sold-out crowd at the official kick-off of City National Grove of Anaheim’s Drive-In OC Series Friday night. It was a little of both. There hasn’t been a full-fledged live concert experience in the area due to the spread of novel coronavirus since March. It was weird to experience a concert, drive-in style, with fans parked within individual tape-marked squares, but as soon as the music began there was an obvi...

In angst-steeped coronavirus era, these teens are helping other teens cope

By Marianne Love, Correspondent There is probably no one better to talk to a teen about sensitive issues than another teen. At Teen Line, a 40-year-old Los Angeles-based non-profit with peer listeners, that has never been more important. COVID-19 has forced everyone into isolation, limited societal interaction and increased anxiety, stress and family discord sometimes leading to thoughts of suicide. “In the case of suicide, we know when youth are reaching out, they actually want someone to liste...

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...

Trump commutes longtime friend Roger Stone’s prison sentence

By Jill Colvin and Eric Tucker, Associated Press WASHINGTON >> President Donald Trump commuted the sentence of his longtime political confidant Roger Stone on Friday, just days before he was set to report to prison.

Teams are using sonar and robotic devices in what could be a long search for “Glee” star and Valencia native Naya Rivera, who authorities believe drowned in a Southern California lake. “We don’t know if she’s going to be found five minutes from now or five days from now,” Ventura County Sheriff’s Capt.

Coronavirus unlikely to be spread by children, research suggests

As schools contemplate reopening amid rising COVID-19 cases, an awkward truth is emerging: We’re the problem, not our kids. For months, we’ve kept children carefully isolated, pleading with them to behave, wear masks, wipe their boogers and not hug Gram and Grandpa. We’ve assumed this new virus acts just like the flu and common cold — so classrooms full of kids would create one giant cootie colony. But a growing body of research suggests young children aren’t responsible for most viral transmiss...

Successful Aging: Feeling your faith and missing religious services during the pandemic

Q. As a 78-year old widow, I find myself missing my weekly religious services more than ever while finding my faith becoming stronger. Religion via Zoom is OK but not a real substitute for being in a sanctuary with other worshipers. I miss seeing my friends every week and singing together.
