"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.

Banc of California, a growing community bank in Irvine, is doubling its footprint in Southern California as it joins a new wave of smaller California banks pushing to expand into regional players in the aftermath of the financial crisis and the Great Recession. Banc of California said Wednesday that it agreed to buy 20 Popular Community Bank branches from struggling Popular Inc. in Puerto Rico, adding them to its 18 branches from Los Angeles to San Diego. The new branches would be in lightly banked Latino neighborhoods in Los Angeles and Orange counties.

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.

Air quality regulators, embarking on a bold new strategy to reduce smog in Southern California, want to hold the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach responsible for their pledges to cut pollution from thousands of trucks, ships and trains carrying goods to and from the nation's largest port complex. If a rule proposed by the South Coast Air Quality Management District is adopted, it could open the door to similar regulations on other facilities that are magnets for truck and rail traffic, such as warehouses, distribution centers and rail yards.

After years of eliminating jobs in Southern California, aerospace giant Boeing Co. announced plans to increase its engineering workforce in Long Beach and Seal Beach by 1,000 positions. It is a rare and welcome development for the Southland's beleaguered aerospace industry, which has been stung by layoffs and assembly line closures for decades. "I couldn't be happier for the region," Long Beach Mayor Bob Foster said. "We want to continue to carry on our aviation tradition here.

"This primitivistic music goes on and on," the prescient San Francisco Chronicle music and art critic Alfred Frankenstein wrote in his 1964 review of the premiere of Terry Riley's "In C. " "At times you feel you have never done anything all your life long but listen to this music and as if that is all there is or ever will be, but it is altogether absorbing, exciting, and moving, too," he continued. Saturday afternoon, in a special installation/performance at the Hammer Museum that helped kick off the first full weekend of the Los Angeles Philharmonic's Minimalist Jukebox festival, this primitivistic music went on and on for four hours.

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.
