    IRWINDALE >> Sriracha’s spicy relationship with the City Council cooled off a bit Wednesday after officials unanimously dismissed a lawsuit and public nuisance declaration against manufacturer Huy Fong Foods. The standoff between the city and Sriracha creator David Tran began in October when the city filed a lawsuit against his iconic company. The battle sparked fears among Sriracha fans there would be a global shortage of the popular condiment and its bottle with the tell-tale green cap. An informal meeting Tuesday between Tran and city officials, accompanied by a written statement from Tran, provided the council the assurance it needed...

    IRWINDALE>> The city Monday asked a Superior Court judge to halt operations at the Huy Fong Foods factory, which produces the popular Sriracha hot chili sauce, according to a source with knowledge of the litigation. The lawsuit — and request for injunction — follows several complaints of smells emanating from the plant on North Azusa Canyon Road, the source said. Irwindale City Councilman H. Manuel Ortiz said he’s received “numerous” calls from residents all over the city complaining about the smells. “We’re hoping to work with the company, with the manufacturing company, to minimize the smell or to completely get...
  • Court throws out LAPD impound policy that allowed officers to release cars of unlicensed drivers

    A Superior Court judge on Wednesday threw out a controversial Los Angeles Police Department policy that allowed officers to release impounded vehicles to unlicensed drivers sooner than the 30-day period spelled out under state law. The LAPD policy had drawn criticism because it was seen as lessening the penalty for people who drove without a license — particularly undocumented immigrants who are unable to obtain California licenses. Special Order 7, approved in April 2012, allowed vehicles to be released to unlicensed drivers without a 30-day impound if they had proof of insurance, valid identification and no previous citations for unlicensed...

    In Upland, a baby daddy has been busy. At a baby shower recently in the City of Gracious Living (Upland, Ca.), the expectant mother's husband showed up to claim the presents himself. Why? According to the city's police blotter, he "took the gifts to give to his girlfriend who just gave birth to his child." Yes. He burst into his wife's baby shower and grabbed the gifts to give to his second family with his mistress. I'm no etiquette expert, but that seems wrong, doesn't it? Needless to say, "she became upset and they argued." He hit her and fled,...

    They're messy, poisonous and prolific. But at least they keep out their cousins, who are even worse. Families venturing out this spring can now see the unique egg sacs of the brown widow spider, an invasive arachnid that is increasingly displacing black widow spiders in California's backyards. The egg sac is round and distinctively spiky, like a white cotton naval mine. Brown widow spiders love to place their egg sacs on the bottom side of chairs. "They love cheap, plastic patio furniture," said Mark Hoddle, the director of the UC Riverside Center for Invasive Species Research. Brown widows are close...

The fast-food chain came under fire from lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender, or LGBT, groups last year after statements from the company's chief operating officer, Dan Cathy, voiced his opposition to same-sex marriage.

Such alignments can occur but these are a regular occurrence and can cause no harm (and, indeed, will not even be at its closest alignment during the 2012 solstice.)

    January 21, 2002 What are the Teachers Unions hiding … and why? Dr. M.E. Bradford had a way of making Faulkner come alive, and when Dr. Jerry Polinard lectured on Constitutional Law, it was just a matter of time before he’d have me steaming. And thinking. That illustrious duo (one a southern conservative, the other a Yankee liberal) were teachers who most changed my life, molding a passionate but unformed adolescent Baby Boomer mind to think about the great issues of the day sensibly, systematically and with an appreciation for history. And to welcome the free exchange of conflicting views, ...

    January 19, 2002 The fairness doctrine Former CBS newsman Bernie Goldberg's book "Bias" has hit No. 1 on The New York Times bestseller list, and its thesis is that CBS News ignores the plight of regular Americans and embraces political correctness. Mr. Goldberg also sees a bias to the left, which is usually the case when political correctness is in play. As a former CBS News correspondent myself, I agree with Goldberg when he says that conservative voices are neglected on CBS. But I don't think that Dan Rather and the crew consciously try to get liberals elected to office ...

    State drains cities' coffers Published Monday, July 17, 2000 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- By L.C. Greene Staff Writer LA VERNE -- The city started its new fiscal year with bad financial news from the state. Despite a $12 billion surplus, the new state budget gives virtually nothing back to the cities, no return of the property taxes Sacramento grabbed during the recession of the early 1990s. "We are at the low end of the totem pole," said La Verne Finance Officer Ron Clark. "The governor and the Legislature have other issues, higher priorities than returning property tax take-aways." Despite those take-aways, La Verne ...

    'She-ocracy': The Radicals United for Ladies' Evil Michael Savage Thursday, June 22, 2000 We've all been warned about the dangers of a theocracy where religious zealots rule. Today in America, we have a "She-ocracy" where feminist zealots rule. At the top of this hierarchy is Hillary Clinton, followed by Janet Reno and her U.S. attorneys, most of whom are radical feminists; Ruth Bader Ginsberg and Sandra Day O'Connor on the U.S. Supreme Court; Donna Shalala, the head of HHS; Barbara Boxer, the radical abortionist from California; Dianne Feinstein, the radical senator from California whose husband, Richard Blum, does big business ...

    Bush Making Inroads Out West By Ron Fournier AP Political Writer Wednesday, May 31, 2000; 5:11 p.m. EDT WASHINGTON –– George W. Bush, with his Texas twang and political history conforming to "the credo of the West," is performing better than expected in many Western states, but he hasn't loosened Al Gore's grip on vote-rich California. Starting with Oklahoma and Texas and moving west to the Rocky Mountain states, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada and the Pacific Coast, 13 western states offer 152 electoral votes – more than half the total required to win the presidency. California alone accounts for 54 ...

    ATTACKING PRIVACY FOR THE SAKE OF GAY PRIDE By Michael Medved Investor's Business Daily Published May 22, 2000 In the impassioned pursuit of “fairness,” the national movement for gay rights is sacrificing the cause of privacy. Consider President Clinton’s videotaped remarks to the huge crowd gathered recently in the nation’s capital for the “Millennium March.” To inspire the demonstrators, the president proudly announced that he had appointed more homosexuals to prominent positions than any of his predecessors, citing more than 150 “openly gay” officials in his administration. In other words, Clinton made a public issue of his appointees’ private sexual ...

    Quick on the draw against guns Paul Craig Roberts Monday after Easter was African-American Family Day at the National Zoo. It was a day marked by mob fistfights and a shooting spree at the zoo's entrance. Seven were injured by the gunfire, one critically. A 16-year-old has been arrested and charged with the shootings. Guns, of course, were blamed for the violence that marred African-American Family Day. The Second Amendment's enemies are using the shootings to call for more gun control. In D.C. guns are already controlled. It is illegal to have an unlicensed pistol. It is illegal for teen-agers ...

    Going to ultra extremes R. Emmett Tyrrell Jr. There is good news for those of us who see the world as it is and hope our fellow Americans will too. I have in mind those of us who see our neighbor's household pet and recognize it as a dog, not a potential beneficiary of the Bill of Rights and an eventual naturalized citizen of the United States. We see spring showers and avail ourselves of an umbrella rather than a bomb shelter. We see prosecutors pursing a crooked politician and recognize the workings of the American legal system, not the ...

    Trustworthy, loyal, helpful — and gay? That the Supreme Court is even considering the complaint of a homosexual young man who objects to being excluded from a leadership role in the Boy Scouts is testimony to the decline of common sense in our culture. James Dale is a former Boy Scout (the age limit being 18) who wants very much to continue his involvement with the youth organization, but as a leader — specifically, as an assistant scoutmaster. He was denied this role as a mentor and supervisor of young boys when it was discovered that he is a homosexual ...
