Step inside Oga’s Cantina, Disneyland’s wretched hive of scum and villainy at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

When you step inside Oga’s Cantina in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland you’re likely to find a bartender mixing interstellar cocktails, a droid DJ spinning otherworldly tunes and a bounty hunter who wants to talk to you about the galactic credits you owe a space pirate. “Every self-respecting spaceport has a cantina,” said Walt Disney Imagineering portfolio creative executive Scott Trowbridge. “This is the best place on the outpost to catch up on the gossip, to meet some interesting charac...

Mike Trout is a believer in the Angels’ long-term plan

ANAHEIM — When Mike Trout and GM Billy Eppler would exchange texts over the winter, it typically began with “smack talk,” Eppler said, about the Chargers and Philadelphia Eagles, their respective favorite teams. Then there might be some small talk about their families, and then exchanging ideas about the future of the Angels. Those conversations provided a snapshot of a relationship that would eventually lead to Trout becoming an Angel for life. On the day that the Angels celebrated Trout’s 1...

As post-LA Marathon runners took over Santa Monica, meet the DJ ‘zombie’ who live-streamed his race

As the clock struck three hours past start time of the L.A. Marathon on Sunday morning, runners who had just breached the finish began slowly walking through a maze of muscle milk and bananas in a post-marathon saunter, perhaps best described as a zombie waddle. One of such post-marathon “zombies” was DJ BL3ND, his face covered by an actual zombie-akin demon mask as he updated his Instagram followers about his 26.2-mile achievement. The Downey-native wears the mask to hide his name and age from ...

This LA Marathon runner is “running” it on crutches this year

While most people ran the L.A. Marathon on two feet, Paul Brestyanszky ran it on four. Two were crutches, though. “I’m hanging on,” he said just minutes before the race began. “I have no choice it’s my 34th.” The legacy runner has ran every L.A. Marathon since the beginning. But when he slipped, fell and fractured his patella bone in his knee, he had to get creative. “I’ve been doing a lot of bench presses,” he said. An exercise he’s hoping will condition his armpits and pecks for the hours of w...

Greeted by protests, Rep. Ilhan Omar tells LA-area Muslims to ‘raise hell’ in face of ‘human rights’ violations

Freshman Congresswoman Ilham Omar of Minnesota urged some 400 Los Angeles-area Muslims packed inside the Woodland Hills Hilton on Saturday to stand defiant and “raise hell” in the face of discrimination they confront as Muslims in America. It’s advice the politician appears to have adopted as her own strategy, as this appearance — a fund-raising event hosted by the Council on American-Islamic Relations — came just weeks after her comments sparked national controversy and exposed a generational ...

Yoko Ono honored by St. Vincent, Shirley Manson and a powerful night of performances at Walt Disney Concert Hall in LA

As singer Shirley Manson closed out a celebration of Yoko Ono in Los Angeles on Friday, she admitted that as a child she believed she should hate Ono, wrongly blaming her as many once did for marrying John Lennon and the break-up of the Beatles that soon followed. But hate turned to love, Manson said, the perfect sentiment for all that John and Yoko espoused. And looking into the darkness to where Ono sat quietly watching, Manson said she now only hoped she didn’t burst into tears, so much does ...

Are you ‘Kondo’ing’ your home? There’s a hidden tax benefit to tidying up

Americans are cleaning house thanks in part to Marie Kondo, author of The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up, which has sold more than 4 million copies. Kondo makes the case that traditional methods of cleaning room by room are futile. Unnecessary belongings are moved first to corners, then to closets, spare rooms, and eventually to garages and storage units. As a result, with traditional housekeeping methods, we are always cleaning. Her KonMari Method is different, she claims, because it involve...

Fire trucks are supposed to have 2 license plates but some don’t

Q. I have noticed that most government vehicles have front and back license plates. Even cops! Even ambulances! But not so with fire trucks. I don’t see a legal carve-out for this omission, and they sure look good without one up front. But what gives? I don’t see cops pulling over Engine 51 on the way to the grocery store!

Invader mosquitoes expected to arrive early – and in droves – this year in Los Angeles and Orange counties

On the heels of Southern California’s big rains, residents now can expect the downside: an early and vicious mosquito season. Spring is here and the swarms of invasive Aedes mosquitoes that caused so much grief in 2018 are expected to return with a vengeance following this winter’s heavy rains. Vector control officials in Los Angeles and Orange counties are bracing for what they expect will be a busy year. Since arriving in Southern California in 2011, the tiny “ankle biter” insects have been mu...

Newsom declares emergency, waives environmental rules for California fire season prep

By KATHLEEN RONAYNE SACRAMENTO, Calif. — California Gov.
