    Full title: Angel Stadium food guide: Critic Brad A. Johnson offers what to eat (or not), how long it takes and more I dined at every single food concession at Angel Stadium so that everyone else doesn’t have to. I found a great cheeseburger, some wretched barbecue and county-fair-worthy hand-dipped corn dogs. I learned that a fancy gourmet sausage topped with grilled onions is not better than the most basic, unadorned Angel Dog. I also realized that just because a concession carries the name of a famous chain, the product might bear little resemblance to the real deal. Here are...

Live-style complex at the doorstep of Angel Stadium. LT Global Investment’s plan includes a 28-story condominium tower, a 26-story hotel-office building and a 460,000-square-foot retail center with a rooftop plaza. The plan calls for 600 condos and apartments, 300 hotel rooms and 60,000 square feet of office space. A pedestrian pathway would link the development to the ballpark.

    California's measles outbreak has climbed to 91 confirmed cases, prompting a vicious attack from USA Today contributor Alex Berezow against "anti-vaxxers." He blames them for the epidemic that CDC officials say was introduced at the Disneyland theme park by a person infected with measles overseas. Berezow's knee-jerk reaction is to declare, "Parents who do not vaccinate their children should go to jail." He erroneously maintains that measles could not spread in a fully vaccinated society and discredits as "ludicrous" concerns regarding the safety and effectiveness of vaccines. Claiming there is a "mountain of data" proving otherwise, his one and only...

    ANAHEIM – By day, county Supervisor Shawn Nelson sees a sand crab when he drives past the new transit hub in his district. By night, he thinks “disco roller rink” when colorful lights illuminate the building. “I don’t think this is what the taxpayers had in mind,” said Nelson, who is also board chairman of the Orange County Transportation Authority. Many local architects, however, call the Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center, set to open Dec. 6., a modern marvel and the future of transportation.

    ANAHEIM – The Anaheim Police Department could be the first agency in the county to require officers to wear video cameras while on patrol, after the City Council unanimously approved the the $1.15 million purchase of 250 of the devices Tuesday. The first officers are expected to be outfitted with the body-mounted cameras in November, with all of them wearing the devices by April. It’s part of the department’s effort to increase transparency and mend a fragile relationship with the public after several high-profile shootings.

    Just days ahead of Memorial Day weekend and the unofficial start of summer, Disneyland on Sunday quietly raised its ticket prices and suspended new sales of one of its popular annual passes. New prices posted to theme park’s website showed that a one-day, one-park ticket to Disneyland or California Adventures will now cost visitors ages 10 and up $96, an increase of $4. A one-day park hopper pass, which grants access to both Disneyland and California Adventures, costs $150, up $13 from the previous price.

When the dog went up to make contact, the suspect, who was armed with a gun, stepped up and shot the dog and the officers at the same time," said Lt. Tim Schmidt.

The fatal police shooting, as well as Kring’s remarks, drew dozens of residents to the Anaheim council meeting Tuesday. The relationship between police and residents in the city’s dense central neighborhoods has been a hot-button issue for several years. Donna Acevedo, whose son Joel Acevedo was shot in an officer-involved shooting in July 2012 that fueled days of protests, said she didn’t care whether Kring retracted the statements because they reflected how she really felt....

The other defendants were two San Diego taxi drivers, 36-year-old Basaaly Saeed Moalin and 56-year-old Issa Doreh, and 37-year-old Ahmed Nasir Taalil Mohamud of Anaheim, whose financial transfer business Shidaal Express was used to route the money, prosecutors said.

    Two decades ago, Santa Ana was at a crossroads. The Orange County seat was two-thirds Latino, but in citywide elections white Republicans candidates dominated. After a long battle, the city was eventually broken into six council wards, and today all are represented by Latinos. Anaheim faces a similar demographic shift now, and many see it at the root of recent angry protests over the fatal police shootings of two Latino men. According to the latest U.S. census, Anaheim is now majority minority. About 52% of the city's 336,000 residents are Latino, but only a handful of Latinos have ever won...

    Over the last few years, guitars and a sort of obscure law against illegal logging have come into conflict. Environmental activists are in Anaheim today, at the National Association of Music Merchants trade show, to do a raising awareness song-and-dance about this. Literally: they've got a musician with them. The guitars are Gibsons, and the law is the Lacey Act. An NPR colleague reported on this issue from Tennessee last year. Gibson is just a flash point: federal law enforcement officials have investigated the company on the suspicion that it broke laws in India and Madagascar. The Lacey Act makes...

The 11 cities that said they were interested: Anaheim, Calif.; Dallas; Denver; Detroit; Las Vegas; Minneapolis; New Orleans; New York; Orlando, Fla.; Phoenix and San Antonio. Some of the cities are in critical swing states like Florida and Arizona, while others are in population centers like New...

    ETROIT, Aug. 29 — For nearly a year, the three foreigners picked up at an apartment here a week after the Sept. 11 attacks seemed like just another group of Arab men caught up in the government dragnet. They languished in prison while facing charges that seemed minor; federal agents had actually been looking for the previous occupant when they raided the apartment.But at least one thing appears to have separated the Detroit trio from hundreds of other Arabs swept up by the government in the last year: a cooperative witness. A fourth Arab man who once lived with...
