It's not quite June yet, but Angelenos will be getting a fair dose of gloom this weekend, forecasters said. After a mini-heat wave that sent temperatures soaring as high as 15 degrees above normal this week, a low-pressure system could bring persistent low clouds and cool inland areas down to the low-70s by Saturday, according to the National Weather Service. The cool-down comes a bit later than expected; forecasters had predicted that downtown and valley areas would see some relief from the heat Wednesday, but cooler ocean air stayed west of the 405 Freeway, and some inland areas saw the mercury rise to the mid-90s.

A doctor has been indicted on federal drug trafficking charges for allegedly turning his East Los Angeles and San Gabriel clinics into lucrative mills where he doled out prescriptions for powerful painkillers and other widely abused medications in exchange for cash. Dr. Andrew S. Sun, 78, of La Mirada, surrendered to federal authorities and was expected to be arraigned Thursday. Sun faces 24 counts of prescribing Vicodin, Xanax, a cough syrup with codeine known on the street as "Purple Drank" and other dangerous narcotics to undercover agents who had no medical need for the drugs.

In south San Gabriel, Howard Fang found a scarab beetle in a parking lot near his workplace on Aug. 1. It was upside down and struggling, he said, so he turned it right side up, and it went along its merry way. Fang adds that his office building has a mirror-like facade, so birds and insects fly into it from time to time. Fang used an iPhone 4S.  Each week, we're featuring photos of Southern California submitted by readers.

Snaking through the city of Liuzhou in southern China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, the Liu River dominates the landscape -- and the flavors of the food. The local specialty, luosifen , a crave-worthy rice noodle soup, is so treasured in this metropolis that you'll find it served everywhere, from shops to street food stalls to chain restaurants. Its delicately flavored broth is made using freshwater snails, which have a mild, sweet taste similar to conch, but there is no snail meat in the soup.

The San Gabriel Mission's wayward cross is back in its rightful place atop the historic landmark. Four years ago, on a cold winter night, someone sneaked into the mission and took the 50-year-old metal cross that was leaning against the church building. Authorities eventually recovered the 8-foot, 100-pound cross, but it remained in storage until this week, when it was hoisted to its rightful place.

Bad news for President Clinton. The San Gabriel Unified School District will not consider naming its first high school after him. A majority of more than 60 students and local residents who responded to a district request for high school names suggested Clinton's. But a district committee decided it is too soon to use the name of the five-month president. Three names will be chosen for a ballot that will appear in the district newsletter later this year.

Rosa Quirino liked to perform with leather huaraches on her feet and a shawl criss-crossed over her chest, in a nod to Pancho Villa. When men teased her as she sang, she would tell them: "Gentlemen, we are working. " Then, she'd pull out her gun. The year was 1903, and Doña Rosa, a mariachi from Mexico who began playing violin at age 13, was a rare sight. Her story and others are being featured in an exhibit this month at the San Gabriel Mission Playhouse. The show covers more than a century of history surrounding female mariachis: ladies who found success - starring on television, scoring sponsors and performing internationally - at a time when the Mexican music genre was ruled entirely by men. "They were seen, they were heard, they performed in front of thousands of people," said Leonor Xochitl Perez, the exhibit's organizer.

Chen Si, 35, and her husband visited Los Angeles from Shanghai for the first time in December, excited about local attractions like Disneyland and Hollywood. They were less enthused about the idea of American food. They booked a room in San Gabriel, where friends said they could find "acceptable" Chinese food in the surrounding neighborhood, Si said. The once-quiet suburb about 12 miles east of downtown Los Angeles is in the midst of a transformation built on the growing international reputation of its Chinese food and services.

These are boom times for the once quiet suburb of San Gabriel, which is in the midst of a transformation built on the growing international reputation of its Chinese food and services. Statistics show about a third of Chinese tourists who travel to the United States spend at least some time in Los Angeles. Some are shunning coastal resorts and Beverly Hills opulence in favor of San Gabriel, a city of 40,000 best known for its historic mission. “San Gabriel is famous in China,” said David Lee, chief executive of Hing Wa Lee Group, which recently opened a flagship jewelry store in San Gabriel a few hundred feet from a Hilton hotel, where many Chinese tourists stay.
