The final week of June was by all means one filled with gloom. Not just the gloom of overcast skies that we Southern Californians are used to in the year’s sixth month, but the gloom that comes from the loss of iconic figures that have played a role in the cultural fabric of our lives.

Robert Blechl BURBANK -- You wouldn't know it from Tuesday morning's gloom, but the first heat wave of the year made its mark by melting a record last weekend. Sunday's peak temperature reached 94, frying the old record for the day of 92 set in 1967. But the high pressure began to break Monday. Although humid, Monday's high was 81, paling in comparison to another record of 92 set in 1967. Today through Friday should be milder as well, said meteorologist Bruce Rockwell of the National Weather Service, but the mercury may rise again by the weekend.
