Former Riverside Police Chief Russ Leach received preferential treatment when he was stopped in February after crashing his city-owned car following a night of drinking, according to an internal review of the incident. Normally, Riverside police would have conducted a field sobriety test, collected physical evidence and made an arrest, the report said. Instead, they drove the chief home. "It is clear that the former chief was given preferential treatment," said City Manager Bradley Hudson in a statement released late Tuesday.

There was a time when Christian charities would raise money by showing films of their good works in church basements. Then Russ Reid, a marketing man who specialized in religious groups, came up with a bold plan for World Vision, a client that sought to feed the world's poor: Buy an hour of TV time and hire a camera crew to roam the world with a warmhearted celebrity, introducing viewers to impoverished children. Even if the grand effort flopped, there would be a saving grace, he jokingly told a dubious charity executive: "You'll have the most expensive church film ever made.

Perfection is the goal here How do you cook a perfect hard-boiled egg? It's really simple. Arrange the eggs in a single layer in a saucepan or deep skillet. Add just enough tap water to cover. Bring to a boil and cook one minute. Remove from the heat and let them stand at least 15 minutes. Because the water begins to cool as soon as the heat is turned off, the eggs never overcook the way they can if you leave them at a steady simmer. You get eggs with whites that are firm but not rubbery and yolks that are bright orange and moist.

Former Riverside Police Chief Russ Leach was charged Monday with driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol when he crashed his city-owned vehicle last month after a night of drinking, officials said. The Feb. 8 accident happened after Leach had four drinks at home and at least seven more at a strip club in Colton, according to an investigation by the California Highway Patrol. The CHP said Leach, 62, had been taking "several" prescription medications that carried strict warnings that they not be mixed with alcohol.

Halloween is my favorite time of year. And I love to be scared. Over the years, I've been through my fair share of theme park mazes, independent haunted attractions and backyard spookfests. I even dress up every Halloween as a chainsaw-wielding maniac in a hockey mask and scare the neighborhood kids at the haunted house on our block. So I like to think I've seen it all - from the mundane to the extreme. But I've never experienced anything like McKamey Manor . > Photos: Inside the McKamey Manor backyard haunt in San Diego On Friday night I went through the backyard haunt tucked behind the three-bedroom, brick-and-stucco home of Russ and Carol McKamey in an otherwise ordinary San Diego subdivision near Poway.

I'm standing on a slice of paradise in Crete. The sun is burning down out of a blue sky, the sandy beach beneath my feet is stretching to crystal-clear sea, but terror is numbing my senses. Kayak instructor Russ is explaining that we're going to capsize our lightweight Rainbow Lasers, then unsnap the spray skirt holding us in, and eject from the submerged cockpit in a forward rolling somersault. "I didn't join this trip to become James Bond," says Jim, who's busy squeezing what he calls his "good-living gut" into a canary yellow lifejacket.

Jan. 28 brought back some old and unhappy memories--the Kennedy assassination and the jet crash in San Diego. I remember the shock and aftershocks. At work my thoughts turned to 10-year-old Russ and 8-year-old Megan, our kids. They both had talked about how neat it was that a teacher would be on the Challenger and would actually televise lessons from space. I thought about the shuttle and how that shape had become so familiar to children in models, toys, cutout books, etc. It has fashioned a connection between now and the future for us and our kids.

Sometimes it's the simplest things that are the most confounding. Last year, right before Easter, I blogged about how to make a perfect hard-boiled egg. Basic? Yes. Popular? Very. This seemingly simple task received tens of thousands of page views. And, it seemed, almost as many complaints: "But how do you peel them?" Mea culpa. while my method ensures that hard-boiled eggs are never overdone (at last: the cure for the dreaded copper-green ring!), it also can make them harder to shell, because perfectly cooked eggs turn out to be stickier than ones that have been overcooked.

Easter is Sunday, which means many people need to learn how to properly hard-boil an egg. Emphasis on " properly . " You probably already know how to make hard-boiled eggs the wrong way: Boil the eggs until the kitchen gets stinky with that sulfur-y, rotten-egg smell and you're left with rubbery whites and a distasteful green ring around the yolk. But fear not. This is the Easter when you learn how to properly make hard-boiled eggs, courtesy of the L.A. Times Test Kitchen and Food Editor Russ Parsons.

Pop star and singing competition judge Britney Spears has bought the Thousand Oaks home of former professional hockey player Russ Courtnall and his wife, actress Paris Vaughan. The property came on the market in August at $8.5 million and was withdrawn from the Multiple Listing Service within a month. A withdrawal is a tactic sometimes used to hide celebrity home purchases. The sales price was not disclosed. The Mediterranean-style house, built in 2010, is in the Lake Sherwood area.

Even in Hollywood, it's rare for anyone to be able to boast a connection to dozens of Oscar-contending films and blockbusters over the last 25 years. But Russ Campbell can hardly turn on the television or go to a movie theater without seeing something he's made a mark on — including the high-profile films "J. Edgar," "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy," "The Rum Diary," "Cowboys & Aliens," "A Single Man," "Catch Me if You Can" and "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," as well as such TV shows as "Mad Men. " Campbell isn't a big-shot producer or a studio honcho.

The night before had been unseasonably cold for late April, with a low near 20, but now the campus was basking in sunshine. Shirtless joggers bounded past pale co-eds stretched out on blankets, and leafless trees seemed to sprout green buds in a matter of hours, as in time-lapse photography. In a dark and cramped basement room in venerable Sorin Hall, a restless freshman football player slipped on a pair of shorts and boat shoes.

THANKS to the popularity of fried calamari, almost everyone has eaten squid, even if very few people have cooked it. Really, there's not that much to it. The most important thing you have to know is that squid is almost pure muscle, with little fat. That means it cooks very quickly and overcooks almost as fast. If you've ever had calamari with the texture of rubber bands, it was because someone wasn't paying attention and let it cook a minute or two too long.

After four years at the helm, Los Angeles Times Editor Russ Stanton is stepping down, with Managing Editor Davan Maharaj assuming the top newsroom job. Stanton, 52, joined The Times in 1997 as a business reporter in Orange County. He led the news organization for four years, a period in which it expanded its digital reach to more than 17 million readers each month and won three Pulitzer Prizes, including this year's Public Service award for exposing corruption in the city of Bell.
