'Gilligan's Island' star Dawn Wells dies, COVID-19 cited
1/6/2021 12:21:58 PM

By Lynn Elber   LOS ANGELES (AP)—Dawn Wells, who played the wholesome Mary Ann among a misfit band of shipwrecked castaways on the 1960s sitcom “Gilligan's Island,” died Wednesday of causes related to COVID-19, her publicist said. She was 82. Wells died peacefully at a residential facility in Los Angeles, publicist Harlan Boll said. “There is so much more to Dawn Wells” than the “Gilligan's Island” character that brought her fame, Boll said in a statement. Besides TV, film and stage acting credits, her other real-life...

Bomb-sniffing dogs? Check. Times Square crowd? Not this year
1/6/2021 12:19:20 PM

By Robert Bumsted and Jim Mustian   NEW YORK (AP)—Gone were the revelry and shoulder-to-shoulder crowds that typify Times Square on New Year's Eve, replaced by empty streets and an eerie quiet as the final moments of 2020 ticked away. This was New Year's Eve in the age of COVID-19. Crowd control gave way to crowd prevention, as police closed the Crossroads of the World to vehicles and onlookers hoping to catch a glimpse of the glittering, crystal ball that still descended down a flagpole to mark the stroke of midnight. Would-be partygoers were urged to...

Black California surgeon ‘walks the walk’ on virus vaccine
1/6/2021 12:17:02 PM

By Kathleen Ronayne   SACRAMENTO (AP)—Dr. David Tom Cooke says his choice to participate in a clinical trial for a coronavirus vaccine is like his grandmother’s decision to leave the Jim Crow South to work in California’s naval shipyards during World War II. She was determined to contribute even though the country didn’t recognize her as worthy of full rights. Today, it’s Cooke’s sense of duty and experience as a Black man that led him to test out Pfizer’s vaccine in August and make it his mission to allay concerns about its safety...

Vaccination campaign picks up speed around the world
1/6/2021 12:08:32 PM

By Danica Kirka and Aniruddha Ghosal   The campaign to vanquish the coronavirus is picking up speed, with Britain beginning to dispense the second vaccine in its arsenal Monday. But authorities in France and elsewhere in Europe are coming under fire for slow rollouts and delays. In the U.S., meanwhile, government officials reported that vaccinations have accelerated markedly after a sluggish start. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious-disease expert, said over the weekend that 1.5 million shots were administered in 72 hours, bringing the total over the past...

Breaking News! Victory in court today!
12/31/2020 2:24:16 PM

The City of Oxnard had been skimming as much as $7 million per year from the City’s three utility enterprises (water, wastewater and solid waste) ... and diverting the money to the general fund for what they call an Infrastructure Use Fee (IUF). Our contention has been that the IUF is an unlawful transfer scheme – really, a backdoor tax! – that violates the California Constitution, particularly Proposition 218. Back in 2016 we notified Oxnard City Hall of our concerns, but they were dismissed. We did not want to go to engage lawyers to...

Oxnard--On Dec 28, 2020 the Ventura County Superior Court issued a tentative ruling on the lawsuit Mr. Aaron Starr filed against the City of Oxnard in 2017.
