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

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! I have seen these missing plates in my town. Randall Marquis, Newport Beach A. Honk looked around, and Newport Beach’s Fire Department isn’t the lone agency out there without ...

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

By KATHLEEN RONAYNE SACRAMENTO, Calif. — California Gov.

If you had the money, would you pay off a college admissions officer? 1 in 4 parents say they would, a new poll finds

And that number rises to 25 percent for adults who actually have children ages 18 and under. It’s a hypothetical question, but certainly a revealing ethical one. There’s been a flood of outrage over the recent college admissions scandal, in which federal prosecutors charged parents with everything from paying off testing proctors t...
