Scott Sterling, the 32-year-old son of Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling, died as a result of a pulmonary embolism and  "narcotic medication intake" in what Los Angeles County coroner's officials classified as an accidental death, authorities said Monday. Sterling was found dead in his apartment on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu on New Year's night. Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department officials quickly determined his death did not involve foul play but appeared to involve some type of drug overdose.

MEXICO CITY -- Hurricane Barbara slammed into the Pacific Coast of Mexico Wednesday, leaving two people dead and 14 fishermen missing in the state of Oaxaca, before reportedly being downgraded to a tropical storm as it moved north toward the Gulf of Mexico. The Oaxacan state government reported that a 25-year-old man in the municipality of Pinotepa Nacional drowned, apparently while trying to cross a riverbed that was quickly filling with water from the pounding rainstorm.

MEXICO CITY - The Pacific coast of Mexico, still smarting from the battering it took from a tropical storm last month, appears to have dodged another assault as a powerful storm moved away from the coast early Wednesday. Conagua, the Mexican water commission, announced that the storm, formerly known as Hurricane Raymond, had been reclassified as a tropical storm. It was about 155 miles southwest of the resort city of Zihuatanejo Wednesday morning, and was moving west-southwest away from the coast at a clip of about 8 mph. In the state of Guerrero - home to both Zihuatanejo and Acapulco - officials were particularly relieved.

Over the decades, the city of Los Angeles has named more than 1,000 architectural and historic landmarks: the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, the Theme Building at LAX, the entry gates of Chinatown. And now it has Der Wienerschnitzel. On Tuesday, the City Council added the nondescript, flat-roofed drive-through, the first of the more than 350 opened by the Wienerschnitzel chain, to its registry of historic-cultural monuments. Less than 600 square feet in size, the Wienerschnitzel outlet in Wilmington isn't much to look at. It's emblazoned in the colors of ketchup and mustard.
