  • Commentary: Mariner's Mile project requires council advocacy

    Mariner's Mile is a place we have all enjoyed for years. The beautiful spot on Coast Highway offers food, drink and merchandise. But why has it been so neglected by the current City Council? We've all endured seemingly endless months of congestion with...
  • Commentary: Setting the record straight on toll lanes

    Much has been written recently about the Caltrans proposal to require tolls on the new lane improvements to the 405 Freeway, and not all of it has been accurate, so I want to set the record straight. I oppose Caltrans' efforts to dictate toll policy...
  • Mountain lions' genetic diversity hindered by Southland freeways, homes

    Mountain lions' genetic diversity hindered by Southland freeways, homes
    Hemmed in by freeways and other development, the few mountain lions living in the Santa Monica Mountains are predictably -- and dangerously -- losing genetic diversity. Researchers suspected as much, but a new analysis of the big cats finds that, in...
  • Lack of land slows work on California bullet train project

    The Hollywood Inn, a shuttered nightclub in a run-down section of Fresno, has been demolished. A few miles away, an 80-foot-deep shaft to test soil conditions has been sunk into the banks of the Fresno River. Officials say such activities, along with...
  • Sign will point way to Balboa Bay Club

    The Balboa Bay Club and Resort may be an iconic spot in Newport Beach, but directing people there has always been a little tricky. True, the beige complex at 1221 W. Coast Hwy. is across from The Car Spa, a little past the fancy cars parked outside...

    L.A.'s street signs have been at the intersection of time and place
    The story of Los Angeles' street signs is hidden safely away on the ninth floor of Caltrans' downtown headquarters: Hand-stenciled wooden two-by-fours like those that originated in the 1890s, their white block lettering set against a dark blue...
  • 'Elaborate' parking-lot project approved in La Cañada

    The La Cañada Flintridge City Council approved on Monday a bid from the Sylmar-based FS Construction Company to upgrade the Caltrans overpass parking lot across from Memorial Park, the current home of the weekly La Cañada Farmers Market. About $183,000...
  • Mailbag: Rudeness at meetings can't be tolerated from anyone

    Some months ago I attended a City Council meeting on a contentious issue (plastic bag ban repeal), and when a member of the public quietly said the word "boo," Mayor Matthew Harper immediately stopped the meeting and reminded the speaker to respect the...
  • Theater's plans to be discussed by Newport Beach City Council

    Council members will discuss how the Balboa Performing Arts Theater Foundation should continue to move forward with plans for the Balboa Peninsula space in a study session at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday. The theater closed in 1992 and stands empty with a sand...
  • Commentary: Stop the 405 toll-lane money grab

    Here we go again. Critics successfully convinced the Orange County Transportation Authority to shelve the 405 toll-lanes proposal, but now Caltrans is backing the idea and hopes to use Orange County sales tax revenue to tax us even more. Orange County...
  • Mailbag: How about a compromise for Fairview Park?

    Re: "Is It Time For Athletic Fields at Fairview?" (July 31): I drive by Fairview Park frequently and view most of it as a major eyesore. Has anyone considered the possibility of just adding some nice grassy fields and letting the users create their...
