A dense fog advisory was issued for valley areas in Los Angeles and Ventura counties until 10 a.m. “There is a weak trough of low pressure moving across the West Coast that is going to create a bit of a cool-down today and tomorrow,” said David Sweet, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Oxnard....

Karen S. Kim Woodbury University's School of Business and Management has agreed to extend a helping hand to a fellow school trying to establish a master's program emphasizing e-commerce. But Woodbury's hand is stretching no small distance as it enters into a partnership with Universidad Francisco Gavidia in San Salvador, El Salvador. "We'll be there to help in the education there, but also to learn from the international community," said Tom Harrington, dean of the Woodbury's business school.

Ten years ago, the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport formally adopted the name Bob Hope Airport. It was a great tribute to the much-loved comedian and stalwart USO volunteer. But the name has a big drawback: It does not give a clue about its geographic location in Southern California, the Los Angeles Times reported .  Airport officials fear they are losing business from out-of-town travelers who book flights to Los Angeles International Airport, without realizing that Bob Hope Airport is closer to tourist attractions like Hollywood Boulevard and Universal Studios Hollywood.

State agricultural officials have declared war on the Oriental fruit fly in the Santa Clarita Valley after five flies were trapped there over two days last month. The action is the first for the Santa Clarita area but is one of several in Southern California since the invasive flies turned up in Pasadena in 2010. Slightly larger than a housefly and marked by a black "T" on its yellow abdomen, the fly is typically found in Hawaii and Micronesia. It poses a threat to scores of fruits and vegetables here, including dates, avocados, tomatoes and peppers.

Verdugo pool is indeed finally open. A visit in the afternoon of June 8 showed hundreds of patrons in both pools and on the nearby deck and small grassy shaded area. To justify the city's investment in this facility, I hope they are still coming to use the pool between October and May - it's always great to swim any time of the year in Southern California. The crowd was much smaller for noon lap swimming on Sunday, but that's an activity which does not benefit from crowds. Burbank residents and swimmers from other communities should thank those responsible for the new Verdugo pool.

BURBANK — The competition will no doubt be fierce at the CIF Southern California Golf Assn. Regional Qualifier. It's probably a good bet that most of the golfers taking part in the tournament will have years of playing experience, with some having competed in the sport for more than a decade. Burroughs High's Kelsey Danzeisen isn't a member of that group. In fact, the Indians' junior picked up the sport only three years ago. Despite his lack of experience, Danzeisen has enjoyed a fruitful run in two consecutive CIF Southern Section tournaments.

E very year, police officers make the trek on foot throughout the streets of Greater Los Angeles, carrying torches of hope and inclusion for developmentally disabled athletes. In a show of solidarity with those who prove that there really is no barrier to sportsmanship, the annual torch run for the Special Olympics is a very public display of how athleticism — and the human spirit — can take many forms. It's something we can all root for, and a cause we should all remember to support throughout the year, not just on the day that police close down routes to escort the torches through Southern California.

DOWNTOWN — Thousands of residents renewed travel regimens this Memorial Day weekend, pouring onto highways and into airports as the nation officially ushered in the summer travel season. Be it falling gas prices, enticing hotel and car rental rates or a slight uptick in consumer confidence, the Southland was expected to see nearly an 8% increase in the number of residents traveling over the holiday weekend, according to the Automobile Club of Southern California. About 2.1 million people, representing roughly 85% of Southland travelers, were projected to reach their destinations by car, an increase of 8.3% over last year, according to the auto club.

Rep. Adam Schiff, together with his Democratic colleague Howard Berman, this week urged the Federal Aviation Administration to approve mandatory nighttime curfews for flights at Bob Hope Airport and other local Southern California airstrips. On Thursday, Schiff told the House subcommittee that funds the aviation agency that the curfew, known as the Part 161 Study, would impact a “relatively small number of diverted flights while delivering significant reductions” in noise impacts and mitigation costs for neighborhoods.
