The Army Corps of Engineers has made a major new financial commitment to repairing a badly damaged breakwater at a Central Coast port.

More than 600 feet of breakwater at Port San Luis, in San Luis Obispo County is failing. Officials say the damaged port infrastructure puts Avila Beach, boats, and the port facility itself at risk from major storms.

Firefighters quickly knocked down a small brush fire in eastern Ventura County which burned close to some homes.

The fire was discovered just after 4:30 Tuesday afternoon in a rugged canyon behind Arroyo Vista Street, north of Highway 101 in Newbury Park.

Plenty Of Shadows Loom In 'Gathering'

Feb 25, 2016

The title of this followup to V.E. Schwab's 2015 fantasy novel A Darker Shade Of Magic might be considered a warning for impatient readers: In A Gathering Of Shadows, plenty of shadows gather. Portents simmer. Tension mounts. Disaster looms. Evil threatens. But nothing much comes of any of it until the final pages, which dash to an intense cliffhanger ending.

When Taevin Lewis first arrived at Harris-Stowe State University in St. Louis — a long plane ride from her native Tennessee — she was a little lost.

"I didn't know where to go," remembers the sophomore biology major. "I didn't know where a lot of the offices were."

And it wasn't just the campus map. She didn't know some of the basics of college life: How to sign up for classes, how to sign up for a campus job, how to maintain a checkbook.

While Apple and the FBI fight in court over the government's demand that the tech company to help it break into the iPhone of one of the San Bernardino shooters, Congress is trying to find its own solution to the digital security/national security debate.

Iranians vote on Friday for Parliament. The results could signal whether they are ready to engage more robustly with the West, following a deal with world powers aimed at preventing the country from developing nuclear weapons.

Hardliners have effectively controlled the country's political system since Iran's revolution. But Hassan Rouhani, the current president, is considered a moderate and has worked to improve relations with the West. The election will be a crucial test of his agenda.

What if you had to go to the hospital, and when it came time to return home, your landlord said you couldn't move back in? Across the country, thousands of nursing home residents face that situation every year. In most cases, it's a violation of federal regulations. But those rules are rarely enforced by the states. So, in California, some nursing home residents are suing the state, hoping to force it to take action.

It's increasingly likely that the next time you have an encounter with a police officer, he or she will be wearing a body camera. And depending on how things go, you may be left wondering: "Can I get a copy of that video?"

There's no single answer to that, or other pressing questions, such as whether you can tell an officer you don't want to be recorded. In the year and a half since the Ferguson, Mo., protests, police departments have been rushing to adopt the cameras.

But when it comes to body camera policies, departments are all over the map.

Last year, Ford asked people if they could imagine themselves buying or riding in a self-driving vehicle.

Out of the eight countries surveyed, India and China had the highest positive answers at 84 percent and 78 percent, respectively, compared to the U.S. and U.K. at 40 percent and 30 percent, respectively, the study found.

ROBERT SIEGEL, HOST:

It’s a tiny, and poor South Coast community so small it doesn’t have restaurants or gas stations. Unfortunately, for the hundreds of kids who live there, it also doesn’t even have a park.

But, thanks to a campaign involving everyone from community residents, to government leaders it’s soon going to have its own community center, and park.

KCLU's Lance Orozco has the story.
