An important admission.

U.S. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Huntington Beach, just made a striking admission: Speaking to a group of ma*****na activists on Capitol Hill, Rohrabacher said he had recently turned to medical ma*****na to help deal with arthritis pain, and it worked.

Antitrust laws exist to prevent big monopolies from cornering a market. Office Depot and Staples point out, though, that both of them face a bigger competitor from places like Amazon.

Staples and Office Depot call off terms to merge after a federal judge sided with the FTC, who moved to stop their merger plans in December.

If the OC Register had a comments section most people would be screaming for the judge's head, but to me the real blame, if this suspect really did murder his ex-girlfriend, goes to the prosecutors. The OCDA has serious problems, and a very compliant "tough on crime" public enabled it.

Convicted double murderer Henry Rodriguez was released on bail Monday after 18 years in prison, another felony case upended because of questions related to the Orange County District Attorney’s Office’s use of jailhouse informants.

Lurid as this story is, I do believe issues of mental capacity and intent as to end-of-life documents will become a bigger issue as more Americans live longer and longer. These issues will intrude into the political field, I suspect.

A former lover’s challenge to the media titan’s mental competency was rejected by a judge in a case that had drawn wide attention on Wall Street and in Hollywood.

A brief reminder that brush fires are a real danger in California, even in the places where you feel safest and most immune from danger.

ORANGE – The iconic Orange Hill Restaurant that leads guests up a winding road to a dining experience with sweeping views was threatened by a vegetation fire Sunday evening.

The U.S. government announced plans on Tuesday to forgive $7.7 billion in student loans for about 387,000 permanently disabled borrowers.

If you live in Orange County, you'd do well to check out its canyons and creeks. It'll help you dispel the OC image as nothing but suburbia, and give you an appreciation for what needs to be preserved.

Looking up at sun-dappled water cascading some 40 feet between emerald-green canyon walls, I find it nearly impossible to believe that less than an hour ago I was stuck at a red light.

I still remember my sixth grade teacher vividly explaining how he was caught by a mob.

A new film – “The Night Stalker,” starring Lou Diamond Phillips as Richard Ramirez – is set to premiere in Orange County in early June after producers decided the movie should be seen in an area that the serial killer terrorized in 1985.

People would rather have overcrowded jails than higher crime rates; one problem is hidden, the other means your patio furniture gets stolen. The fact remains that a decent society doesn't just stuff prisoners in overcrowded, understaffed jails and prisons.

Orange County’s jail population decreased substantially last year, mirroring a statewide dip in the number of inmates, which a study released Wednesday said is the result of a controversial California law.

A big problem is that state university systems depend less and less on the public dollar, so the old goals of benefiting in-state residents are forgotten in favor of out-of-state residents (and their money).

The University of California did not sufficiently reduce its costs before turning to out-of-state and international students to increase revenues, the state auditor concluded in a new report released Tuesday.

I'm glad the OC Register continues to look into the OC District Attorney's "jailhouse snitch" scandal. A big consequence of getting prisoners to snitch on each other is that it makes testimony unreliable. So in the search for law and order you encourage outright lying in the name of justice. That rarely works out well.

Into the dark, she drives. Every weekend Gail Harrington-Wisely heads north along hundreds of miles of inky black freeways. Hours and hours of audiobooks, mostly crime novels, break up the monotony.

Marsha Gay Reynolds, who officials say fled security as she tried to smuggle nearly 70 pounds of what they think is co***ne, turns herself in to authorities.

Looks like the owners of the LA Times and the Riverside Press Enterprise will not be buying the OC Register. Like a lot of people, I don't agree with the opinion of the judge here.

The Justice Department moves to thwart the Michael Ferro-led Tribune Publishing deal for Freedom Communications deals a blow to company strategy and yields questions about scope of action.

Here's a case where a "debt relief" company did little or nothing to help its customers. If you're thinking of bankruptcy or paying back your creditors, be sure to talk to a lawyer before you use the services of anyone claiming to do debt consolidation.

No, there's nothing in the Constitution that says the President can't nominate a Supreme Court Justice in his final year. Nothing about "letting the people decide," either; its the Senate's job. Lots of nonsense out there over this.

Pesident Obama announced Wednesday morning he is nominating Merrick Garland to serve on the Supreme Court, setting up a protracted political fight with Republicans who have vowed to block any candidate picked by the White House.

SANTA ANA – Three Santa Ana police officers were charged Monday with suspicion of petty theft during a search of the Sky High Holistic medical-ma*****na dispensary last year.

Due to their influence, the LA Times reported on how Beverly Hills residents would pay far less for egregious water use while poorer residents in Bakersfield would be hit with way bigger fines. Looks like that's beginning to stop.

Officials in Beverly Hills say they tried it all: educational campaigns, usage restrictions and written notices for people suspected of wasting water.

Some background on the Orange County District Attorney. If you treat the U.S. Constitution seriously you should be very troubled by the DA's attitude in literally ordering up jailhouse confessions.

This is a disgrace.

The Orange County Sheriff’s Department is investigating a courthouse fight that broke out Wednesday between a District Attorney’s investigator and a defense attorney who triumphed over prosecutors in a recent case involving jailhouse informants.

Just as its foolish to underestimate Trump's chances in the primary, its foolish to underestimate how obnoxious he truly is to Mexican-Americans and other Latino groups. If Trump loses, it'll do more to get-out-the-vote efforts and sheer self-defense than any number of smug Saturday Night Live skits.

Mr. Trump’s harsh language against Mexican immigrants has compelled legal residents to seek citizenship in time to vote against him in November.

"LAPD misconduct" was basically daily news for decades in southern California.

I'm confounded by the officer in this case, who was given a knife dug up by construction workers at OJ SImpson's old Brentwood house in the late 90s, and apparently treated it like a trophy to tack on his wall.

LAPD cop withheld possible evidence for years.

The student definitely made a stupid remark. But it goes to how limited your rights can be if you're a non-citizen who happens to make remarks the government doesn't like.

An Egyptian student at a Southern California flight school is being held by immigration authorities and facing possible deportation after allegedly posting on Facebook that if he killed Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump he would be doing the world a favor.

Mexico's monarch butterflies are doing better, thanks for conservation efforts in both Mexico and the U.S.

An estimated 140 million monarch butterflies spent the winter in Mexico this year, a significant increase from last year. What conservation efforts went into this progress?

As long as I can remember the police and District Attorney in OC have been dealing with neo-nazi street gangs. I usually associate the problem with Huntington Beach, but Anaheim has its share of white supremacists.

ANAHEIM – Five of 12 people arrested after a clash between Ku Klux Klan members and counterprotesters Saturday at Pearson Park were released Sunday after police determined that they were acting in self-defense against counterprotesters.

Drug trafficking is no joke but there is a wry sense of humor is smuggling ecstasy pills in a candy-themed puzzle game from Holland.

A Tujunga man was arrested Wednesday after more than 1,000 ecstasy pills were found inside a puzzle box that was delivered near UC Riverside, authorities said. Police were contacted by the Departme…
