"Southland" is turning in its badge -- TNT has decided not to move forward with the cop drama. Its demise comes just weeks after its fifth-season finale, and while that episode brought a slight uptick in viewers, "Southland" wasn't a strong performer for the network; it hovered around the 1-million mark. Concerns grew for the show, about a group of LAPD officers, when word spread that three of its lead actors -- Ben McKenzie, Regina King and Shawn Hatosy -- were in pilots for new series.

Gregory Kelly is a small-scale historian who is out to memorialize big-time Southern California landmarks, one by one. There's the miniature Watts Towers, an elaborate depiction of Newport Beach's Balboa Pavilion and a proportionally correct model of Silver Lake's Music Box Steps - all tucked in Kelly's crowded Tustin hobby shop. Not bad for a man who had never even built a plastic model airplane before deciding at age 20 to open his own shop in a building owned by his father.

The Southland's move-up market showed some signs of life as the region's median home price improved for the second consecutive month in May, new data show. The median home price rose 5.4% in May from the same month last year to hit $295,000, real estate research firm DataQuick reported Wednesday. That was a 1.7% improvement over the prior month. Sales throughout the Southland also improved, up 20.6% from May 2011 and 15.1% from April to hit 22,192. Helping boost the median was a narrower share of foreclosures selling as part of the market for previously owned homes.

Indoor trampoline parks are springing into action throughout Southern California, along with leaping games of dodge ball, highflying basketball and rigorous calisthenics. Just ask Akory Coates, who lived out his basketball dreams for an hour recently at a Sky Zone trampoline park in Torrance. He jumped, he twirled in the air, his fingertips grazed the rim and he made four baskets. Not an easy feat for a 9-year-old, but a series of trampolines beneath his feet gave him all the lift he needed.

After an international bidding war, a Westside mansion often described as a French palace has changed hands for $102 million, making it the most expensive residential sale ever recorded in Southern California. As is often the case with high-end properties, the identity of the trophy home's unnamed buyer has been obscured behind layers of lawyers, agents and a limited liability company. But the real estate equivalent of a bread crumb trail suggests that the purchaser of the opulent estate is onetime junk bond king Michael Milken, who has spent more than two decades devoted to philanthropic efforts since he pleaded guilty in 1990 to securities fraud.

When he was a young man, Hobie Alter had a clear vision of his future: He didn't want a job that would require hard-soled shoes, and he didn't want to work east of Pacific Coast Highway. He succeeded. The son of a second-generation orange grower, Alter is credited with innovations that allowed people who couldn't lift log slabs to surf and those who couldn't pay for yacht club memberships to sail. Share your memories: Hobie's contributions to SoCal culture Known practically everywhere with a coastline or a lake simply as "Hobie," Alter developed the mass-produced foam surfboard.

It's long been the stuff of science fiction, the ability to wear a headset and feel as if you're in another world. Creating an affordable virtual reality device for the mass market has been the holy grail of sorts for game developers and futurists. Now Facebook's $2-billion purchase of Oculus may bring that dream one step closer to reality. Virtual reality enthusiasts say they've been waiting for decades for the technology to take off and have been developing headsets and content in the hopes they could soon have mainstream appeal.

Population growth in Southern California slowed last year, and that helped lead to softer demand for housing. The number of residents in the seven-county region grew 0.8% to 21.7 million last year, a slight dip from 0.82% growth the previous year, according to figures released Thursday by the Census Bureau. The populations of the Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino and Ventura counties grew 0.5% to 0.9%, and Imperial County shrank 0.1%. But populations of Riverside and San Diego counties grew faster than the state as a whole, rising 1.2% and 1.1%, respectively.

Christmas just might bring record high temperatures to the Southland. It's so warm and dry that forecasters have issued a red flag fire warning through Thursday evening for much of Los Angeles and Ventura counties. The record high for Christmas Day in downtown L.A. was 85 degrees, reached in 1980. Meteorologist Carol Smith with the National Weather Service in Oxnard said the temperature is forecast to meet that mark on Wednesday. The low in downtown Los Angeles Wednesday morning was 46 degrees, meaning the temperature might jump roughly 40 degrees through the day. In Long Beach, where the Christmas record was set at 81 degrees in 1972, the high Wednesday is expected to reach 83. Burbank hit 85 degrees on this date in 1980 and Smith said Wednesday is also forecast to be 85 degrees.
