Earlier this year, the Orange County’s District Attorney’s...

There were elbow bumps and cordial greetings, and the sister took a seat inches from another person. Soon, about 10 or 12 people had gathered. It was a lovely scene, friends and family enjoying each other’s company on a pleasant eve to take...

    Her throat was slit. She wore a flower print blouse and purple pants. Her body was found in a bean field in Huntington Beach.

As if she’s the one who’s a bad neighbor. “They’re thinking either that I’m a liberal, or that in Newport Beach, having to wear a mask...

    California’s beaches, when open, have provided residents a respite from the coronavirus-induced shelter-in-place orders. However, there are parts of the coastline that are better than others.
