Inland Empire officials seeking control of LA/Ontario International Airport are balking at an unprecedented demand by Los Angeles that they buy the struggling operation for hundreds of millions of dollars. Join us at 9 a.m. as we discuss the debate on what an aiport - - at least the one in Ontario - - is worth with Times reporter Dan Weikel.

Two men from the Inland Empire face charges of pimping and pandering two women after being arrested by undercover police in Santa Ana, prosecutors said. Raphael Jared Scally and Darryl Da Keis Gillard, both 27, have each been charged with two felony counts of pimping and two felony counts of pandering, according to a statement from the Orange County district attorney's office. Prosecutors said the two men could face enhanced sentencing, if convicted, because both were on bail in another felony case -- a 2010 residential burglary case -- when the recent crime occurred.

Three Riverside County businessmen and four associates were criminally charged Thursday after prosecutors said they sold false investments and committed grand theft in a scheme that bilked clients of $17 million and left many broke. "The schemes . . . collected tens of millions of dollars and victimized both individual investors and financial institutions," U.S. Atty. George S. Cardona said at a news conference in Riverside. "Using storefronts across the Inland Empire and numerous phone lines assigned to their shell companies, the schemers misled banks into believing that prospective borrowers had significant assets, when in fact the schemers were engaging in a mortgage fraud shell game built on lies to both their investors and the banks."

Stirred by a decade of astronomical growth, economic heartache and the rising political influence of Latinos, the Inland Empire proved treacherous territory last week for a Republican Party that just a decade ago considered it the new GOP frontier. Voters in Riverside and San Bernardino counties on Tuesday elected three Democrats to Congress - two Latinos and a gay Asian American - after having sent only two Democrats to Washington in the last four decades. Before the election, Republicans represented the city of Riverside in Congress, the state Senate and the Assembly.

In the run-up to what became one of the worst storm systems to hit Southern California in five years, all the concern was focused on the Los Angeles foothill communities scarred by the Station fire. But when the wildest weather arrived Wednesday, the worst-hit areas were not La Cañada Flintridge or La Crescenta in the San Gabriel Mountains. Instead, by the luck of the draw, the heart of the storm plunged straight into Orange County and the Inland Empire, giving those areas a soaking that residents said was the worst in recent memory.
