California workers file one-fifth of all U.S. jobless claims

California workers filed fewer first-time claims for unemployment benefits during the most recent reporting week — yet those claims accounted for one-fifth of all the jobless claims filed in the U.S., federal officials reported Thursday. Layoffs continue to hound California workers to a much greater degree than the rest of the nation in the wake of wide-ranging business shutdowns ordered by state and local government agencies to combat the coronavirus. “California continues to have an outsized n...

New mortgages predicted to break all-time record in 2021

Hold onto your hats, because if mortgage bankers are correct, home sales are going to crush it next year with mortgage originations predicted to hit a new record of $1.54 trillion. The forecast, presented at a virtual Mortgage Bankers Association convention, would represent an 8.5% increase compared with 2020, eclipsing the previous record of $1.51 trillion set in 2005.

When to cut back asparagus and other perennials

Q: I have well-established asparagus, it usually starts producing in early spring and continues for months. I simply stop cutting it when it slows down, then I let it go. The ferns reach 6 feet or so, but I never know when to cut it back.  It never turns brown.  I have been cutting it back in January and it still produces well but I have never been able to find a definitive answer as to exactly when it should be cut back. Should I do this earlier? I live about two miles from the ocean in Redondo...

Trump paints apocalyptic portrait of life in US under Biden

By DARLENE SUPERVILLE | Associated Press WASHINGTON — The suburbs wouldn’t be the suburbs anymore, the economy would sink into its worst depression ever and police departments would cease to exist. Even America’s older adults would be left to figure out how to get by without heat, air conditioning or electricity. This is the apocalyptic version of American life that President Donald Trump argues would be the dire consequence of turning over the White House to Democrat Joe Biden. “He’ll bury you ...

As winds weaken and flames from 2 large wildfires subside, thousands of Southern California residents return home

Firefighters battling the Silverado and Blue Ridge fires took advantage of weakening winds Wednesday, allowing crews to gain stronger control of the once fast-moving blazes and paving the way for thousands of residents to return to their homes in Orange, San Bernardino, and Riverside counties. On Monday and Tuesday, powerful Santa Ana winds whipped both fires into large infernos that threatened the homes of more than 100,000 residents of expensive zip codes in cities such as Irvine, Lake Forest,...

Whicker: Dodgers’ Justin Turner forgot he was part of a larger community

No one deserved to sit dead center and front row, in the championship picture, like Justin Turner did. He was job-hunting in 2014, trying to shake his Quadruple-A identity, and he ran into Tim Wallach, then a Dodgers coach at Cal State Fullerton’s intrasquad game. Day by day he became the Dodgers’ leader and mentor. Month by month a clubhouse of individualists became tighter, younger, more committed and more studious. Along the way, the third baseman made himself an All-Star and an MVP vote coll...

Magnificent African songbird turning heads, invading nests, in Southern California

In mating season, the male pin-tailed whydah’s tail can grow to three times its body length, giving it one of the most striking appearances of any wild bird in Southern California. But the beautiful African songbird shouldn’t even be here. And that’s where the drama begins. The female lays its eggs in the nests of other bird species, leaving it to the foster parents to try to feed two sets of hatchlings. The sole identified host species in Southern California is the scaly-breasted munia, itself...

In 2019, they were among the big-name stars who played Southern California’s casino showrooms. However, in 2020, nearly all plans for an encore were dashed because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Firefighters make big progress on Silverado fire, reaching 25% containment

Firefighters have been able to lock down 25% of the Silverado fire’s perimeter and, overnight, kept the fire from expanding beyond the 13,354 acres it had consumed largely east of Irvine. The wind-driven blaze started Monday and quickly forced tens of thousands of Irvine and Lake Forest residents to leave their homes as thick smoke blanketed the sky.
