Muse, The Killers, Bishop Briggs and more mix things up at the 2nd Annual ALT 98.7/FM ALTer Ego

Alt 98.7/FM’s 2nd Annual iHeartRadio ALTer Ego bash sold out at The Forum in Inglewood on Saturday night and it had quite an impressive line-up with show-topping performances courtesy of arguably two of the biggest modern day rock bands: Muse and The Killers. Though The Killers, fearlessly led by the charismatic Brandon Flowers, brought the mostly lethargic crowd to life via its much too short — but hit-filled — set, they don’t get all of the credit. Maybe it’s still super early in the year and ...

Students seen mocking Native Americans at Washington, D.C. rally may face expulsion

FRANKFORT, Ky. — Students at a Kentucky Catholic school who were involved in a video showing them mocking Native Americans outside the Lincoln Memorial after a Washington rally could potentially face expulsion, according to the diocese. In a joint statement, the Roman Catholic Diocese of Covington and Covington Catholic High School apologized and said they are investigating and will take “appropriate action, up to and including expulsion.” The Indigenous Peoples March in Washington on Friday coi...

Winter storm, TSA sickouts continue to disrupt U.S. travel

A one-two punch of bad weather and longer airport security lines mean it’ll continue to be a miserable weekend for many travelers in the U.S. Winter storm Harper, a blizzard that the National Weather Service says is shifting from the Midwest into the Northeast, may leave up to two feet of snow. Strong gusty winds and bitter cold will follow, risking a dangerous flash freeze. In the West, heavy mountain snow will fall in California and the Rocky Mountain region. President Trump tweeted about the ...

Whicker: Pacquiao still good enough to win decisively over Broner

LAS VEGAS — Manny Pacquiao returned to the MGM Grand on Saturday, like all the box-office sensations do. He sold out the Grand Garden Arena, putting 13,029 into the joint. They were Filipinos and nostalgia buffs and just plain boxing fans, most of whom can tell a legend from an alphabet champion. All of them invested more in this WBA welterweight title fight than Adrien Broner did. For some reason people keep paying Broner big bucks to walk around a ring and preen and posture. They also watch hi...

Recipe: On a keto diet? Try making this portobello mushroom pizza

January seems like the unofficial go-on-a-diet month. For many that means embracing a trendy keto-compliant regime, a high-protein low-carb eating plan that many assume implies “meat-heavy” menus. A new cookbook, “The Essential Vegetarian Keto Cookbook” from the editors at Rodale Books (Rodale Books, $14.99), offers a strategy for vegetarians to embrace the eating plan. A keto diet requires creativity when making classic comfort foods. Portobello mushrooms can be a replacement for the bread in p...

Trump to offer temporary protections for undocumented ‘dreamers’ in exchange for $5.7 billion for border wall, GOP officials say

President Trump is planning to make a new offer Saturday to Democrats aimed at ending the 29-day partial government shutdown that would extend deportation protections for some immigrants in exchange for $5.7 billion in border wall funding, according to Republican officials. The president’s proposal, which he is expected to announce at the White House at 4 p.m., is designed to ramp up pressure on Democrats by offering a reprieve on his attempts to end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)...

New Year? A new budget could help you save for that trip to Hawaii

Many of us made New Year’s resolutions this month. Often these resolutions include losing weight, incorporating a healthier lifestyle, or eliminating a daily trip to Starbucks. Have you considered implementing a monthly budget as a resolution? Budgeting is a concept you may not want to think about, much less use. To some people, the word itself brings thoughts of personal conflict, restriction, and thriftiness. Often these emotions are not well received. Once the concept is embraced, “budgeting”...

HOA Homefront: What makes a director outstanding? Attitude

A community association is no better than the board of directors which leads it, and excellent associations require excellent volunteer leaders. Truly exceptional volunteer governance is not a happy accident, and it often has little to do with a volunteer’s background, training, and experience. Instead, it is the result of hard work and the pursuit of proper values, foundational understandings, and perspectives. This week launches a four-part series regarding what makes (or should make) a volunt...

Allen Buchanan: A primer on operating expenses in commercial real estate

Generally, January is the time of year when your landlord will present you with an invoice for expenses – in addition to your base rent. This assumes, of course, that you lease your business’ home. However, if you own your business home, take heed, as you may be able to take a few more dollars from your left pocket and move them into your right pocket by asking your occupant to pay for some stuff. This column is designed as a primer for these expenses. Let’s define a couple of key terms – shall ...

Here are a few tips for a fresh start to the new year for home buyers and sellers.

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, NASCAR Hall of Famer, dies at 93

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

Following a lengthy illness, Glen Wood, who was the oldest living member of the NASCAR Hall of Fame, died Friday at the age of 93. “In every way, Glen Wood was an original.

Whicker: Age is just a number for Mickelson. So is 16-under-par for 36 holes

LA QUINTA — Phil Mickelson left the pin in the cup Friday, at the fourth hole on the Nicklaus Tournament Course. You can putt that way now, thanks to a significant rewriting of The Rules Of Golf. He might not do it again. He missed the birdie putt. Then he birdied the next three holes. “That felt very uncomfortable,” Mickelson said. “I sort of eased into it, thinking I might hit the pin and miss the putt. “I don’t know the new rules well enough and I haven’t had a chance to get a seminar.

Injured whale euthanized after washing ashore at Zuma Beach

MALIBU — An injured pygmy sperm whale who washed ashore at Zuma Beach in Malibu Friday was euthanized, authorities said. The whale was spotted at the shoreline about 7:45 a.m., according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

50 years ago, these were the No. 1 albums and music singles of 1969

In 1969 you either bought your music on black plastic circles and used a needle to scratch sounds out of the vinyl, heard it on the airwaves, most likely on a lo-fi AM radio, or, if you were lucky, saw your favorite bands and musicians live in concert. The best-selling album of the year, Iron Butterfly’s “In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida,” plateaued at No. 4 on the charts, but that’s probably because the 10 albums that made it to the top were more uniformly solid, nearly all of them still considered classics....
