Half Moon Bay ‘Dream Machines’ car-airplane-boat show canceled this year

The annual Half Moon Bay car-plane-boat show, Pacific Coast Dream Machines, has been grounded after organizers struggled to secure necessary permits from the Federal Aviation Administration on time. For 30 years, scores of car buffs, aviation nerds and bikers have revved their engines and set out for for the annual show each spring, which also serves as a fundraiser for the Coastside Adult Day Health Center. The event relies on around 200 volunteers to go on. “It’s definitely disappointing,” said Chad Hooker, chairman of the event and a board member for the health center. “It’s such an important event, not just for Coastside, but for the whole community.” It’s not the first time that the event organizers have had to slam the brakes on the show in recent years — in 2020 and 2021, the coronavirus pandemic shut down the event. The ‘Dream’ was deferred for a third year in 2022 after the airport revealed that it had allowed a farmer to plant crops on part of the its property typically used for the event. Finally, in 2023, the event was allowed to go on.

Warriors: Andrew Wiggins’ injury, Draymond Green center dilemma and Steph Curry’s magic

Andrew Wiggins’ injured left foot puts his status in question heading into the final three games of this road trip, beginning today in Brooklyn. The Warriors wing came up hobbling after appearing to twist his ankle late in the first half and didn’t return for the second half of the Warriors’ OT loss to the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday night. X-ray results came up negative, coach Steve Kerr told reporters after the game, but classified the injury as a sprained foot in a diagnosis relayed by director of sports medicine and performance Rick Celebrini. Wiggins, who is a team-worst minus-143 this season, was starting to round into shape with Draymond Green’s return to the fold from his indefinite suspension on Jan. 15. With Green at center, Wiggins and Jonathan Kuminga have settled into their defensive roles guarding opposing teams’ best and twitchiest scorers. Wiggins’ presence was missed during overtime when Kuminga fouled out and Kerr had to throw out his best defensive positional lineup of Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, rookie Brandin Podziemski, Lester Quinones and Green. Wiggins has played in 42 of the Warriors’ 46

High winds, rain rage through Monterey County

High winds with gusts up to 60 mph were taking down trees and power lines Sunday morning on the Monterey Peninsula, leaving thousands without power. The storm was forecast to continue raging through much of the day. Sunday’s fourth and final round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am was delayed and rescheduled for Monday. Fans are asked to stay out of Del Monte Forest. The County of Monterey’s emergency staff, including the sheriff, is urging people to stay away from the ocean Sunday. High winds and rains brought down several trees and powerlines Sunday such as this one in Pebble Beach. (David Kellogg — Monterey Herald)  The storm is making conditions very dangerous according to the National Weather Service. People are urged to stay away from beaches, ocean trails and ocean rocks because of strong waves that could sweep them away. An evacuation warning remains in effect for Bolsa Knolls, but it has been upgraded to an evacuation order for low-lying areas near the Carmel River. The county reports that for flood prone areas, sand stockpiles are being refreshed for residents to make sandbags. Sand

EVs that still qualify for the federal tax credit

Since the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act, the list of electric vehicles that qualify for the $7,500 federal tax credit has dwindled away as new eligibility restrictions have gone into effect. The list is now quite short, and some EVs only qualify for a $3,750 credit. Some of the EVs on the list are relatively inefficient models that provide limited environmental benefits. The battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVS) with the highest fuel economy have all been disqualified, but conscientious consumers still have a number of efficient BEVs to choose from that are eligible for the full incentive. The official list is available online at fueleconomy.gov and can change at any moment. Five notable Tesla models are currently listed as eligible for the full $7,500. The All-Wheel-Drive Model Y has an outstanding MPGe rating of 123, making it the most efficient BEV on the list. The high performance version of the Model Y is also eligible, but its MPGe rating of 111 is somewhat lower. The only Model 3 to qualify is the high performance version, which has an MPGe

‘Argylle’ tops box office, but fails to pack any sock

The spy thriller “Argylle” topped the domestic box office on its opening weekend, but some Hollywood insiders said it performed poorly based on its reported budget. The film, produced by Apple Original Films and distributed by Universal, ranked No. 1 and brought in $18 million over the weekend, according to Comscore estimates. “This is a weak opening for a new action comedy that was written to be the first in a trilogy of films,” wrote David Gross in movie franchise industry newsletter FranchiseRe. “At an estimated cost of $200 m[illion], as the start of a series, the weekend opening is below average.” Apple did not respond to a request for comment. “Argylle,” which stars actors Bryce Dallas Howard, Sam Rockwell and Henry Cavill, was panned by critics, receiving a 35% score on Rotten Tomatoes. It generated a higher 70% audience score on the movie review aggregator site. The results come as movie theaters are struggling to bring in audiences in 2024. The domestic box office year to date is down 13% in revenue, compared to last year, in part due to movie slates reshuffled amid

Drowning in Guatemalan lake provokes family suspicion, TikTok finger-pointing, death threats

For the family of Nancy Ng, the nightmare began on Oct. 19, when the 29-year-old teacher’s aide from Monterey Park presumably drowned in Lake Atitlan in Guatemala during a yoga retreat. For San Bernardino County Deputy Public Defender Christina Blazek — believed to be the last person to have seen Ng alive  — the nightmare began about a month later. That’s when Ng’s family and one of its representatives publicly disclosed Blazek’s name and accused her of being silent and uncooperative in the search for Ng’s body, as well as hindering a Guatemalan police investigation. The whiff of mystery about Ng’s last moments alive and allegations that Blazek and the retreat organizer had refused to talk to Ng’s family or authorities — possibly rising to the level of a criminal investigation — triggered sometimes wild speculation from TikTok sleuths and YouTubers, as well as widespread media coverage. In turn, that prompted an onslaught of online hate-mongering, harassment, cyberstalking and death threats against Blazek from as far away as Europe, according to Blazek’s attorney, G. Christopher Gardner. “A killer you are. You are a killer!” one

Is 5 mph over the speed limit enough for a ticket? Troopers explain

While you may believe going 5 or 10 mph over the posted speed limit may be harmless, authorities in Colorado argue that isn’t the case, KTLA sister station KXRM says. Troopers with the Colorado State Patrol (CSP) are often asked at social gatherings or in brief conversations how fast someone can go over the speed limit before being pulled over. It’s a question they typically respond to with a rhetorical (but also serious) one: “What is the posted speed limit?” In a press release last week, Colorado State Patrol warned of one of the reasons behind speed limits: being able to stop in time. If you’re speeding, it could take you longer to react and break should the vehicles ahead of you suddenly stop. “Many motorists don’t consider the space they need to maintain around them when driving at high rates of speed. Two-car lengths is commonly practiced, but it is grossly deficient. A good rule of thumb is to have one car length per 10 mph traveled,” wrote CSP.

Defense on the Lakers’ mind heading toward the trade deadline

Jalen Brunson, whose stellar play is one of the best stories in the NBA this season, pounded the ball into the Madison Square Garden court, looking for an opening to get to one of his mid-range shooting spots, where he’s become one of the league’s most dangerous scorers. Had it not been for a fluky step two nights before in Boston, Jarred Vanderbilt would’ve been the Laker tasked with stopping Brunson, the team’s rangy long-armed forward usually drawing the toughest defensive assignments. Instead as the game progressed Saturday night, the Lakers used Taurean Prince … and Austin Reaves. Or Prince … and Max Christie or LeBron James or whoever to try to force the ball out of Brunson’s hands, the Lakers aggressively double-teaming their way to a dominant fourth quarter during which the Knicks scored only 10 points before breaking through for a handful more in the final minute, with the outcome already decided. “Just in tune with what we wanted to do on a possession-by-possession basis,” James said of that stretch in the fourth quarter. “We were flying around. We were communicating, we were

Why L.A.’s battle against a deadly disease relies on unpaid volunteers

As evening fell in her Glendale apartment, Dara Bruce fed her pet rats George and Fred, poured herself a glass of water, and dialed a complete stranger to discuss the dangerous virus detected in his blood. “Is now a good time to talk?” she asked. Bruce is a volunteer in the enduring fight against hepatitis C. The stealthy killer claims the lives of roughly 14,000 Americans each year, even though it can be readily cured with a few months of pills. Many people have no idea they are infected, going years without symptoms before the blood-borne virus devastates the liver. Yet public funding to combat hepatitis C is so scant that in Los Angeles County — an area more populous than many states — the crucial work of contacting those who are infected is being done by unpaid emissaries like Bruce through a fledgling initiative called Project Connect. A partnership between USC and the county public health department, Project Connect trains volunteers to call people who have tested positive for the virus to make sure they know their results and encourage them to get the
