"He's still alive," Dolson said. Dingman was hit in the upper body and underwent surgery Thursday night at a local hospital. Dolson said Dingman was a former El Camino College student but was not currently enrolled. Based on the circumstances, detectives believe Dingman was trying to end his life in what is commonly known as a "suicide by cop," Dolson said. Dingman's own Facebook page and other online information show he attended Towers Elementary School, Bert Lynn Middle School and West High School in Torrance.
This photo was shot on a Hasselblad 203fe that sadly left my possession in 2007 in Barcelona, the local police believing an eastern European crime ring to be the perpetrators of said kidnapping, I miss that camera so much and hope that it found a good foster home. The 203fe has a shutter in the body, which is unusual for a Hasselblad since normally the shutter is in the lens. It's always sick to me when you see skaters smashing in unexpected ways and seeing Kenny soaring above the park with trademark style was a highlight of the entire tour.
- how cute that the notoriously trend-obsessed city is trying to compete with a so-close stalwart beer scene and its West Coast IPAs. And as a nascent beer scene with no identity to speak of, that perspective could have been right. Yet, our early breweries did not try to compete. Brewer's Guild joins together L.A. County breweries; the Pink Boots Society's L.A. Chapter aims to support females in local craft beer; and there's even a collective for L.A. Beer Bloggers , which hosts summits that focus on topics like beer photography and social media.
The U.S. Coast Guard, a fixture at Los Angeles International Airport since 1962, will move its Air Station Los Angeles to Ventura County by mid-2016. Coast Guard helicopters, because of their size, weight and proximity to the ground, are among the loudest aircraft in local skies. Still, there are times it is unavoidable. During the 18 months Maule has been assigned to Air Station Los Angeles, two medical emergencies forced the Coast Guard to use Zamperini Field. "As a helicopter pilot I feel like I'm always walking this fine line.

A police officer responding to a report of an armed man holding a woman hostage shot someone at the Torrance campus of the El Camino College, officials said. When officers arrived to the parking lot where the hostage situation was reported, a man pointed a gun at him, said El Camino College campus police chief Mike Trevis. Asked if the incident appeared to be a suicide-by-cop, Trevis said it was too early to tell. El Camino College police asked the Los Angeles County Sheriff to assist with the investigation, Trevis said.

According to Torrance police officials, two 15-year-old boys were leaving Fantastic Cafe', 20305 Western Ave., Wednesday at about 7:15 p.m., when a man at a bus stop near the restaurant began yelling at them, "Hey, where you from?"

"I am a strong supporter of the First Amendment. Robles said his main issue with the paper is that it routinely uses the phrases "near Carson" and "West Carson" to describe the unincorporated Los Angeles County strip bordering the city. The name West Carson is the official census tract designation of the area of 22,000 residents sandwiched between Carson to the west and Los Angeles' Harbor Gateway. But if a crime is in Carson, I don't fault the Daily Breeze for reporting that. "I also can tell you that the news is not for sale.
No weapon was seen in the latest robbery, which occurred at the branch at 21323 Hawthorne Blvd. Chris Roosen of the Torrance Police Department branch said a lone robber passed a note to a teller. Officers were looking for a suspect described only as a black man wearing a bandage over one eye, a dark hat with gold lettering and sunglasses. Robbers matching the descriptions of the "Two Guys and a Girl Bandits," struck banks in Rancho Palos Verdes and Torrance on Saturday, the latter crime occurring at the Wells Fargo branch at 4340 W.

The robbers displayed handguns and concealed their faces with nylon stockings as they added a Torrance branch of the Wells Fargo Bank to at least two other bank robberies committed by the trio, said Torrance police Sgt. Robert Watt. This was similar to the Dec. 30 holdup of the CalCom Federal Credit Union at Hawthorne Boulevard and Emerald Avenue, the police sergeant said. They may have also committed a similar-style bank robbery during a violent takeover attack Dec. 12 at a Wells Fargo in Rancho Palos Verdes at 28350 S. Western Ave.
Never before has the Rose Parade lost its Grand Marshal before the parade, and never before has a man been so honored in the pageant. Louis Zamperini--"Louie" to almost everyone--was presented the previous May as the Grand Marshal for the 126th Rose Parade by then Pres. The float almost didn't make it into the running; the Torrance Rose Float Association was low on funds. A visit to the city council meeting in September by Chinen and Fiesta Parade Floats president Tim Estes brought unanimous support from the council and the float was a go.
The Macan has been in hot demand since it went on sale in May in the U.S., said Mike Sullivan, owner of Pacific Porsche in Torrance, Calif., and a member of the Porsche Dealer Board of Regents. Company leaders have said Porsche could sell 18,000 Macans annually in the U.S. beginning this year. In addition to the two Macan models available, Porsche plans to offer a diesel variant late in 2015 or early in 2016. With a full year of production ahead, dealers hope the Macan shortages begin to ease, Sullivan said.
The Lost in Space robot had no name, though aficionados refer to him by the model designation B9 that was visible in an episode. By looks and even personality, B9's ancestor was Robby, a robot that Mr. Kinoshita helped create for the 1956 MGM sci-fi classic Forbidden Planet. Mr. Kinoshita was a designing draftsman at the studio when Robby was being developed.
