Dennis McCarthy column: How the sun finally shone on city’s past racist ‘sundown’ status

 “The Glendale City Council unanimously passed a resolution recently apologizing for its history as a sundown town where Black people had to be out of the city by dark.” It’s 1960 and I’m driving my father’s Chevy Impala through the drive-in at Bob’s Big Boy Restaurant on Colorado Boulevard in Glendale wondering why there are men standing on the front porch of the house across the street dressed in white robes?

But their role left a lasting impact, even if their contributions were largely forgotten. Listen on: Apple Podcasts  |  Stitcher  |...

[REVIEW] Klim Ai-1 Airbag Vest

Introduction Since early 2018, I’ve made an airbag vest part of my riding gear. I decided to invest in an airbag vest after I spent 2017 using a race collar from EVS as a way to help prevent/reduce neck injury in the event of a crash. I’m willing to admit, as I get older, I care more about potential injuries. After a year of wearing the race collar, I started looking into airbag vests. Airbag vests aren’t exactly new to the protective gear landscape having been around for about 30 years, but th...
