REDDING (AP)—Firefighters battled home-destroying wildfires Saturday in Northern California as officials throughout the drought-stricken state warned festive Fourth of July crowds against illegal fireworks and untended campfires that could lead to more damage. Fire officials said parched brush and timber made perfect fuel for the kinds of disasters that have destroyed thousands of square miles of land in recent years, mainly in rural and forest areas. Three large fires were burning near Mount Shasta, a towering volcano about an hour from the Oregon state line. The greatest...

LYNWOOD—The Lynwood High School Girls Basketball team captured a CIF Division 1-AA championship on June 19 that served as a victory for an entire community over a year full of unprecedented challenges. Just months earlier, the LHS Knights weren’t even sure they would be able to gather for a season as Lynwood coped with the pandemic.

By Darlene Superville   WASHINGTON—When President Barack Obama flew to California to dedicate a national monument to Latino labor leader Cesar Chavez  nearly a decade ago, a group of the activist's relatives were invited to pose for photos with the president. Julie Chavez Rodriguez, Chavez's granddaughter, hung back. As a member of Obama's staff, she had traveled with the official party to the event, but did not want to call attention to herself. Only when Obama's senior adviser, Valerie Jarrett, insisted did Rodriguez reluctantly step forward,...

Soderbergh, Cheadle return to Detroit in 'No Sudden Move'
6/30/2021 7:17:13 PM

By Jake Coyle   NEW YORK—During the pandemic, Steven Soderbergh has shot two feature films, released a pair of movies, written a sequel to his first film (1989's “Sex, Lies and Videotape”), re-edited some of his older movies (mostly for fun) and co-produced the Academy Awards. It's an amount of accomplishment that really puts to shame the 1,000-piece puzzle some of us are still proud of assembling last May. Yet at a time when much of Hollywood is going through profound change, Soderbergh has, like few others, seized an uncertain moment. “I...

6/30/2021 7:14:13 PM

By Tom Murphy and Matthew Perrone   In the weeks since a new Alzheimer's drug was approved, hopeful patients have bombarded Dr. Alireza Atri with calls and emails about a treatment that has sparked both excitement and skepticism. They want to know if the drug might be right for them. Like many physicians, Atri has no easy answers. “It's not a simple yes or no,” said the neurologist at the Banner Sun Health Research Institute in Arizona. It probably won't be for a while. Doctors across the country are still trying to figure out who should receive the...

Will the Oscars become a 'who cares' moment as ratings dive?
6/24/2021 10:15:51 PM

NEW YORK (AP)—George Bradley used to love watching the Academy Awards. The 28-year-old Brit now living in San Diego would stay up late back home just to tune in. Though he's now in the right time zone, he's just not interested, and that's due primarily to the pandemic. “The rising dominance of the streaming services has taken the gloss off the Oscars for me,” he said. “You just don't get the same warm fuzzy feeling from when you recognize a movie from the silver screen.” Whether you watch out of love, because you love to hate or have...
