Fourth of July: Divided we stand on everything from flag to heroism

Welcome to the divided states of America. Get ready for an earful. We don’t agree on much in 2020. Need evidence?

Neighborhood heroes raise spirits with Coronasaurus, secret gifts and more during pandemic

Orange County man channels Martin Luther King Jr. to inspire crowds

A man found his voice. It had been lost for many years. Rich Harmon was driving on a recent Saturday with his wife, Dominique. There was no particular destination for the drive. Just a diversion to get them out of their Trabuco Canyon house after so many weekends of sheltering in place to avoid the coronavirus. They passed a Chinese restaurant, a movie theater and Rancho Santa Margarita’s City Hall, where they couldn’t help but notice a group of mostly young protesters had gathered. Rich and ...

With push from ‘Tiger King,’ locals back federal law to limit ownership of big cats

At the beginning of the seven-episode series, this statistic flashes on screen: There are an estimated 7,000 captive tigers in the United States, nearly double the population of tigers in the wild worldwide.
