LATimes - over 4 years
The pilot of a plane that crashed near Westwood on Friday evening had declared an emergency shortly before the plane went down, officials said. The pilot was killed, but no one on the ground was hurt. Samantha Schoenberg, 20, said she was driving home on Santa Monica Boulevard when she saw a plane flying low and nearly on its side. "I was thinking, 'That plane is definitely going to crash,' " she said. "It disappeared behind a building … and there was a huge cloud of black smoke." The pilot of the single-engine Cessna 210 was returning to Santa Monica Airport just before crashing about 6 p.m., said Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor. The plane came down near the intersection of Westwood and Olympic boulevards. It did not hit any buildings despite crashing in a community dense with homes. A fire sparked by the crash was quickly extinguished, fire officials said. The name of the pilot has not been released. No other injuries were reported. The FAA and th ...

Ever since Newbury Park pitcher Luke Eubank signed with Cal State Los Angeles, an NCAA Division II school, last November, there has been much speculation whether he'd end up there.

But Cal State Los Angeles declined to release him from his letter of intent.  According to a family friend, Eubank will enroll at Western Nevada JC in Carson City. -- Eric Sondheimer Photo: Former Newbury Park pitcher Luke Eubank.

The Scout: What's new on Pico Boulevard
LATimes - over 4 years
Here in the land of shopping malls and stacked garages, it's easy to get excited about an L.A. district where you can park on the street. And walk. But that’s just one of many reasons why a day spent in Picfair Village is so enjoyable. Long known for auto body shops and hair salons, the stretch of Pico Boulevard between Fairfax and La Brea avenues now stands out for its eclectic — and growing — mix of stores and restaurants with sidewalk seating. “When I came here, it was myself, Sky’s Tacos, Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles and CJs,” said Pinky Rose Charles, who opened her clothing boutique Pinky Rose nine years ago among the restaurants. “Melrose was so saturated I decided to move south.” PHOTO GALLERY: Pico Boulevard shopping The stretch of Pico Boulevard had long been predicted to be the next big shopping district, but the renaissance that Charles and others had hoped for was slow to transpire. Only in the last year have four design stores opened, all within a few blocks ...

This week's Culinary SOS: Purple Pig's pig ears with kale
LATimes - over 4 years
This week's Culinary SOS request comes from Mary Anne Hernandez of Vancouver, Canada:   We've just returned from a trip to Chicago, and I tell you, we were there for just five days, but we were at the Purple Pig three times. My fave is their fried pig's ears with crispy kale. What an amazing dish! Can you see if they are willing to share their recipe with your readers? Appreciate it very much. Crisp, crunchy and unabashedly pork-a-licious, your unsuspecting friends might never guess they were actually eating deep-fried pig ears unless you told them. Sliced thin and breaded before frying, these bits of pork goodness are served with torn, fried kale and pickled cherry peppers. The dish is topped with a fried egg. Whether you're thinking breakfast or dinner or some snack in between — or maybe looking for the perfect Father's Day dish for the dad who loves all things pork — this dish is heaven on a plate.

I-5 expected to fully reopen Monday after brush fire closures
LATimes - over 4 years
One lane of the northbound 5 Freeway was expected to remain closed until Monday, in the aftermath of a brush fire in Castaic that shut down the freeway completely Friday afternoon, according to the California Highway Patrol.  Emergency equipment from fire crews blocked the far left lane of the freeway at Parker Road on Sunday, said Officer Francisco Villalobos of the CHP. The closure, about a mile and a half long, was not causing much backup in the light weekend morning traffic, he said.  Authorities expect to reopen the freeway completely by noon Monday, Villalobos said.  The blaze, which consumed about 500 acres, was fully contained Saturday afternoon.  ALSO: Decomposing remains found in car are human, officials say L.A.

Woodbury shed poll: And the coolest cabin design is ...
LATimes - over 4 years
  Several weeks ago we reported on 17 architecture students in Woodbury University's design-build program who were asked to create three cabins using mainly components of a hardware store shed kit. Each cabin had to sleep two and provide light, ventilation and insulation. We asked readers to tell us which team had the best design. After a week of voting, the results were surprising: We had a tie. With 2,145 votes cast, the green split-level and the orange hammock hangout each received 1,002 votes. The silvery recycled bottle loft was a distant third, with 141 votes. We look forward to seeing three more cabins, to be built next semester. Meanwhile, you can read our full story and click through a photo gallery of the finished projects.

Recipe Box: 30 beat-the-heat no-bake desserts
LATimes - over 4 years
It's always fun to take advantage of summer by throwing an outdoor dinner party, but when it's hot outside and inside, the last thing you want to do is turn on the oven. Sweat beads build at just the thought of turning your oven dial, but serving a store-bought dessert makes you cringe, and leaving your dinner guests dessert-less is never an option. Cakes and pies in all varieties may be party favorites, but for those days when you just need something sweet, in the heat, how about a frozen blackberry soufflé or a citrus tiramisu? Your guests will delight in a cool dessert, and you will have avoided the look of a disheveled host: hair matted, running around a hot kitchen. There are plenty of ways to tame a sweet tooth without baking. Check out 30 no-bake dessert recipes from the Los Angeles Times test kitchen that will keep you satisfied all summer long.

This week's Culinary SOS: Zengo's Thai chicken empanadas
LATimes - over 4 years
This week's Culinary SOS comes from Joseph Gallana in Van Nuys:  Recently, my boyfriend and I went to try Zengo in Santa Monica Place, and I ordered its Thai chicken empanadas. It was amazing, and I ordered another round. I was so tempted to ask the chef for the recipe, but I was, like, "Why would he give away his recipe to his customers?" If you guys can manage to get the recipe from the chef, that would be fantastic. It's so hard to eat just one of these. The little Thai chicken empanadas are a project but are well worth the time and effort, and they make a perfect appetizer for a party or gathering. Thanks, Joseph! You can find the recipe here.

  Minutes before the three cabins were to be unveiled, 17 exhausted architecture students in Woodbury University's design-build program raced to finish like a construction crew awaiting a city inspector. Ladders were still propped against the structures. Tool belts and Skilsaws lay about. "They were drawing and redrawing until the end," said architect Jeanine Centuori, chairwoman of the undergraduate program. As we reported earlier, the challenge had been daunting: Take the components of a hardware store shed kit and build a cabin that can sleep two, with light, ventilation and insulation.

1971 Ojai ranch house remodeled into modern retreat
LATimes - almost 5 years
After living in what they had thought was their dream house — six bedrooms, five bathrooms, 3,900 square feet in Ojai complete with orange orchard and pool — Wanda Weller Sakai and Kurtis Sakai found themselves wanting something different. Something less. “We realized we’d rather downsize to something smaller and more humble and use whatever money we had left over to make something nice for ourselves,” Kurtis said. “One of the wake-up calls was seeing how much time and money I had to spend on water, property taxes, utilities and landscaping,” he said, adding that the monthly water bill in summer was $700. “I started to think that, for the long haul, it didn’t make sense to be in a house that big.” PHOTO GALLERY: Ojai ranch remodel So they sold the house and bought a 1,700-square-foot, 1971 ranch-house fixer nearby at the foot of Los Padres National Forest, pictured at right, top.
