Column: Flowers, family, ‘John Wick 4’: readers anticipate 2023

Half your responses to my request that you name something you’re looking forward to┬ámade it into Sunday’s column. The other — but not lesser! — half fill out my Wednesday column. This was a pleasantly optimistic, albeit sometimes poignant, way to start the new year off right. (And, pragmatically, a couple of relatively easy ones helped me keep the columns flowing during the holidays.)

Column: A closer look at local election outcomes so far

As per tradition, with Election Day past, I take a look at the results (somewhat preliminary though they are) of local elections for city council and such, and note the ones that seem significant or amusing. These are mostly in the Inland Valley, where I have more knowledge, but with some eastern contests thrown in as well. I offer my observations in Friday’s column, which I hope will get your vote of approval.

Column: When Elvis died, they were all shook up

Elvis died 45 years ago Tuesday: Aug. 16, 1977. (Like 2022’s Aug. 16, it was a Tuesday.) I asked at the end of Sunday’s column where you were when you heard. People emailed with their stories. Not just IE people either; because that column ran in our sister paper in LA, the Daily News, people from LA got in touch as well. I share some of the response in my Wednesday column.
