The power went out, and that's the best part of my day
10/22/2020 11:53:09 AM

By Chris Frost chris@tricountysentry.com   Oxnard-- This may sound off, but how you wake up can throw you off for an entire day.   Let me explain; I am sound asleep at 6:45 this morning, and the power goes off in my house. This may not sound like much, but at our home, this means the power gets cut off on my charging electric car.   Okay, so this event sets off my car burglar alarm. This is not a little jingle going off; this is a blood-curdling shriek that gets all my neighbors outside talking.   Okay, so I fix that problem and...

As Mayor, Deirdre Frank will get to work
10/22/2020 11:50:47 AM

By Chris Frost chris@tricountysentry.com     Oxnard—Oxnard Mayoral Candidate Deidre Frank says if elected, she is uniquely qualified to offer real-life solutions to issues facing the City. While all current council members are public employees, Frank has run her own law firm, The Law Offices of Deirdre Frank," since 1983. But that doesn’t mean she hasn’t been involved in city affairs. Frank is the chair of the Oxnard Planning Commission and says she avoids applause line promises without substance. Instead, she offers realistic...

By Chris Frost chris@tricountysentry.com   Oxnard-- The ghouls and goblins were out in full force, Oct 17, as the Oxnard Police Department's Annual Spooktacular meant treats, music, lots of monsters, and chilling good times.   Cars lined up for as far as you could see past the front of the police station, and the kids got treats courtesy of the Ventura County Probation Department.   Despite Covid-19, the mood was bright and cheery.  Door-to-door trick or treating is being discouraged, so the event meant a lot to the...

10/21/2020 2:13:15 PM

CAIRO (AP)—Egyptian authorities released a comedian, who was working for a popular satirical television program, after more than two years in prison without trial, a rights lawyer said Sunday. Attorney Mokhtar Mounir said Shady Abu Zaid was released from a Cairo police station late Saturday, but as part of his terms of release must report to a police station twice a week. His sister, Roula Abu Zaid, confirmed the news in a Facebook post and shared a photo of the siblings and their friends at home after his release. Police arrested Abu Zaid in May 2018 after plain-clothed...

Johnsons are 'sipping tea' for 'black-ish' family portrait
10/21/2020 2:12:28 PM

By Lynn Elber   LOS ANGELES (AP)—When ABC decided the Johnsons of “black-ish” were due a portrait, it sought an artist who understood the family's perspective. The task went to painter and illustrator Kadir Nelson, a chronicler of contemporary African American experience and an admirer of the sitcom. The result is a captivatingly sly, 70x70-inch oil-on-linen work that depicts series stars including Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross in character and part of a riff on the “sipping tea” meme. Nelson said the approach fits a...

10/21/2020 2:11:35 PM

By Mark Kennedy   NEW YORK (AP)—Lenny Kravitz is a man of extremes—as he readily admits. “I am deeply two-sided: black and white, Jewish and Christian, Manhattan and Brooklynite,” he writes about his first 25 years alive in his new memoir “Let Love Rule,” released last week and named after his 1989 debut album. “The book is about me finding my voice and finding my path and walking into my destiny, whatever that is,” he tells The Associated Press. The 270-page book written along with David Ritz explores his very...

For grateful NBC, Savannah Guthrie changes the subject
10/21/2020 2:10:44 PM

By David Bauder   NEW YORK (AP)—Savannah Guthrie did more than just display her journalistic chops at NBC News' town hall with President Donald Trump. She changed the subject for her bosses. NBC was reeling heading into Thursday's event, under widespread criticism for scheduling it at the same time as ABC's town hall with Democratic opponent Joe Biden. NBC was accused of rewarding Trump for rejecting the debate commission's plan to do the second debate virtually. That was quickly forgotten when the president sat opposite Guthrie, who questioned...

Stephen King's thriller 'Mr. Mercedes' gets another chance
10/21/2020 2:09:27 PM

NEW YORK (AP)—One of Stephen King's most creepy and tense stories was hiding in plain sight. “Mr. Mercedes” started life in 2017 as a broadcast offering on the AT&T-owned, DirecTV-exclusive Audience Network, only to be left marooned with an uncertain future after the obscure channel was shut down. The crime series gets another life this month after NBC's Peacock streaming service acquired it. “Nobody could find it. And that was enormously frustrating,” says director Jack Bender. “Hopefully it's going to get the audience it's...

COVID-inspired mask chain store aims to become obsolete
10/21/2020 2:04:12 PM

By Markian Hawryluk Kaiser Health News   LONE TREE, Colo. (AP)—Darcy Velasquez, 42, and her mother, Roberta Truax, were walking recently in the Park Meadows mall about 15 miles south of downtown Denver, looking for Christmas gifts for Velasquez's two children, when they spotted a store with a display of rhinestone-studded masks. It's an immutable truth of fashion: Sparkles can go a long way with a 9-year-old. The store is called COVID-19 Essentials. And it may well be the country's first retail chain dedicated solely to an infectious disease,...
