‘I Hope It Resonates With People’: Jesus Trejo On Showtime Comedy Special ‘Stay At Home Son’

(CBS Local)– Jesus Trejo is one of the funniest comedians out there and on Friday the world will get to watch his first hour long special on Showtime. “Stay At Home Son” was filmed last November and the California native has  put in a lot of work to get to this point in his comedy career. “I put together this hour and I’m happy that it’s out. I hope it resonates with people,” said Trejo in an interview with CBS Local’s DJ Sixsmith. “I toured with it a bunch last year and I’m excited that it’s finally out. It took a better part of a year to tweak it and move stuff and you move stuff down until the day of the taping. I felt comfortable going into it and there were some adjustments going from the first to the second show because we did two tapings that night.” Trejo’s comedy hour explores his life as first generation Mexican-American, growing up with immigrant parents and everything from running his first marathon to winning his first fight. The stand-up comedian has had a lot of people help…

Report: NBA Commissioner Adam Silver Targets July 31 For Season Restart

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – The return of pro basketball moved closer to reality Friday after the NBA signaled a potential date of July 31 for games to resume. Commissioner Adam Silver and the NBA league office have informed the Board of Governors that July 31 is the date targeted for play to resume, according to the Los Angeles Times. It’s not yet clear what format would be chosen, but the announcement marks the first real signal by the league on players returning to the hardwood. Multiple scenarios are still up for consideration, including the long-shot possibility of bringing back all 30 teams to finish out the season, which has very little support among players, the Times reported. Another scenario would include 20 teams returning for World-Cup style pool play, which would function as a traditional first round of the postseason. The NBA suspended the 2019-20 season in March immediately following Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert testing positive for the coronavirus. Both the Lakers and Clippers resumed modified team workouts earlier this month, but no official team practices have been held.

University of Redlands has $13 million deficit, largely due to coronavirus

The effects of the novel coronavirus crisis on University of Redlands enrollment have led to a deficit of more than $13 million, about 10% of its operating budget for the upcoming fiscal year, which begins July 1. While the number of students is expected to stay about the same as the current year, the institution had based financial assumptions on the growth it had been seeing in previous years, said Kevin Dyerly, the university’s vice president of enrollment. Compared to deficits at other agencies, “with those types of gaps right now it doesn’t look too much like an outlier,” Dyerly said. University officials have guaranteed pay for employees through June 30, and after that are “considering an array of options to achieve a balanced budget and to position the University to thrive in teaching and learning over the long-term,” according to a May 20 letter from President Ralph Kuncl and his cabinet. The letter to faculty, staff and administrators notes that “the pandemic has significantly worsened our financial situation” and administration seeks “innovative and realistic solutions that will ultimately strengthen the University for the future.”…

(Photo by David Allen) A newly proposed Upland city budget for the coming fiscal year includes cuts to police, recreation, after-school programs, city conferences and library hours as leaders wrestle with revenue shortages caused by the coronavirus pandemic. The specifics are outlined in a newly revised 2020-21 draft operating budget from City Manager Rosemary Hoerning that the City Council will consider at a special meeting beginning at 7 p.m. Monday, June 1, viewable only via livestream on the city website or Spectrum Cable Channel 3 or Frontier Cable Channel 26. The shutdown of retail businesses and development projects has resulted in a $2.1 million revenue shortfall. In addition, the city owes the California Public Employees’ Retirement System in 2021 a little more than $1 million for the current unfunded pension liability, resulting in a $3.1 million gap closure…

County Sites Resume Hazardous Waste Collection Operations Monday

Share this article:After more than two months of closures, Riverside County Department of Waste Resources facilities that handle household chemicals, electronics and bulk waste that residents wish to discard will resume operation on Monday. According to the agency, waste collection sites in Riverside, Lake Elsinore and Palm Springs will be open for business on June 1, but restrictions will be in place because of ongoing coronavirus concerns. The household hazardous waste program was suspended on March 17, following county public health orders that prohibited crowding and established protocols for interactions aimed at virus containment. Drop-off events were also canceled through April and May. Department of Waste Resources officials said residents are welcome to return to agency facilities to discard unwanted or spent household chemicals, including bottles of cleansers and insect repellant, as well as paints, batteries, motor oils, computers and even medications. Residents will be asked to remain in their cars when they drive up to a site, and have their trunks unlocked and ready for attendants to access. County workers will not reach inside a vehicle cabin or open doors to retrieve items. More…

City Approves Stadium Sale Agreement, Could Officially Sell to SDSU by July

Share this article:The San Diego City Council voted unanimously Friday to approve a sale agreement for the city-owned Mission Valley stadium property to San Diego State University for $86.2 million, bringing more than a year of negotiations nearly to a close. Before the property officially changes hands, the city and university’s attorneys need to finalize the purchase and sale agreement and 30 attachments. The contract details then need to be approved by the council with an ordinance — which requires two readings in open session — and then a 30-day referendum period before it can be signed by San Diego’s mayor or their designee. In short, barring any last-minute negotiations, San Diego State could close escrow and officially take ownership of the 132-acre property by late July. “As an SDSU graduate, I am elated to play a role in helping my alma mater expand its institutional footprint, enhance its educational prestige, increase our supply of workforce and student housing, and create a river park for all San Diegans,” said Georgette Gomez, council president. San Diego voters approved Measure G in November 2018, setting in motion…

CDC Was ‘Never Blind’ To Early Spread Of Coronavirus In US, Director Says

(CNN) — The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was “never blind” to the early spread of the coronavirus in the United States, the agency’s director, Dr. Robert Redfield, told reporters on Friday. Redfield defended the CDC’s surveillance for the coronavirus and denied that the agency missed the spread of the virus across the country. “We were never blind when it came to surveillance for coronavirus 19,” Redfield said. “The reality is the surveillance systems that CDC had developed over the years for respiratory viral diseases, particularly the influenza-like illness, really did give us eyes on this disease as it began to emerge,” Redfield said. “Independent of testing, we had pretty good eyes on whether there was any new respiratory influenza-like illness occurring in our country.” Redfield was discussing a new CDC report that shows the virus was already spreading some in January and early February in Washington state and other Pacific Northwest areas, much earlier than when the first case of community spread was confirmed in the United States in late February. CDC previously has been criticized for its slow response to the coronavirus outbreak.…

Gov. Newsom On George Floyd Death: ‘We’ve Got To Fundamentally Change Who We Are’

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — California Gov. Gavin Newsom took the first part of his address on Friday to talk about death of George Floyd. The governor talked about how his young children have been digesting the news of the Minnesota’s man’s death. He noted how his whole family has gotten emotional over the situation. RELATED: Former Minneapolis Officer Derek Chauvin In Custody, Charged With Murder In George Floyd’s Death “There’s deep anger, there’s deep frustration, there’s deep fear,” Newsom said. He also related how his wife, Jennifer Siebel Newsom, has been a champion of equality since her days as a filmmaker. Newsom, reflecting on his wife’s work, said the country’s values need to evolve. “We’ve got to fundamentally change who we are, and recognize what we’re capable of being,” Newsom said. “We have a country that predominantly values power, dominance and aggression over care, empathy and collaboration,” Newsom added later. “The predominant values that we seem to be attracted to as a nation, they’re not serving us anymore.” Floyd’s death has sparked an outcry nationwide, with civil rights advocates decrying the apparent racism of the situation.…
