Lucas Kwan Peterson Los Angeles Times Published 4:06 PM EDT Jun 20, 2019 It’s June, which means that we have the longest day of the year to look forward to this month. And after that, it’s all downhill until we descend into complete darkness. You may occasionally wonder, what’s it all for? Is it possible to truly attain intimacy with another person given the loneliness of our individual bodies? Will we ever be able to stop looking at Instagram no matter how many Screen Time limits we put on our phones? At times like this, all you can do is try your best, and eat a lot of candy. Fortunately, I’m here with the unassailable, infallibly factual and 100% correct L.A. Times Candy Bar Power Rankings. I have judged every candy bar in known existence (with the exception of ones I deemed unworthy or could not find at CVS, or both) and ranked them by the metrics of 1) taste and 2) attractiveness of the wrapper. 1) Take 5 Shut it down. We’ve got a winner. We … [Read more...] about The official candy bar power rankings

Escalante, Utah • On the eastern end of Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, narrow slot canyons shoot through the rocks in shades of terra-cotta red and pale peach. To the west stand surreal rock spires, the hoodoos for which the badlands are known. But what’s buried beneath undulating gray formations here is what caught Washington’s attention: coal. Decades ago, that gray swath signaled big profits for any company prepared to dig it up. But today, even the government officials charged with assessing the roughly 9 billion tons of coal deposits say they are unlikely to attract investors' interest. In this fight, ideology has triumphed over economics. While administration officials trumpet a potential coal boom here, it’s unclear whether there will be many takers. Several of the tourist operators, conservation groups and researchers who invested in the area over the past two decades fear that even a modest amount of mining will undermine the … [Read more...] about Trump has opened up Utah’s Grand Staircase to coal mining, why has no one taken him up on it yet?
0 Have your say Jack Ross says a late injury to Bryan Oviedo forced him to name just six substitutes for the 1-1 draw with Charlton Athletic. Oviedo was due to travel with the team on Friday but suffered a late injury. Ross had a number of absentees already and with Sunderland's U23s due to face Newcastle United that afternoon, he made the call to take just 17 players in the squad. The Black Cats boss hopes to boost his options by bringing in a new defender next week. "We only had 18 fit and available to travel, then Bryan Oviedo got injured in the last part of training yesterday and wasn't fit to travel," Ross said. "There was an U23 game against Newcastle and I wasn't going to pull anyone out of the team at the stage."You can only make three subs and I only made two in the end, so having six on the bench isn't that tough."It was just through the set of circumstances that transpired."Ross admitted the result left the team with a 'bittersweet' … [Read more...] about Jack Ross on Bryan Oviedo’s late withdrawal and Sunderland’s ‘bittersweet’ draw with Charlton
Ryan Patrick Hooper Special to the Detroit Free Press Published 6:00 AM EST Dec 26, 2018 After almost 42 years of slinging beers and burgers at the Bronx Bar on Second Avenue, one of the most infamous bartenders in the Cass Corridor is calling it quits. On Wednesday, 69-year-old Charleen Dexter will serve her last drink at the same bar where she first waited tables back in 1977. “Nobody has worked any of these bars for almost 42 ... years,” says Dexter, inserting a profanity. “We can’t keep a cook for six months much less 42 years.” She started as a 27-year-old single mother hoping the tips she made at the Bronx would support her three kids. Living across the street at the Sheridan Court apartments, she’d walk to work from her $120-a-month two-bedroom unit (rent in the same building today starts at $875). Four decades later, she still lives a block away. Bartender at the Bronx will likely be the last job title she’ll have. And while … [Read more...] about Detroit’s Bronx Bar bartender retires after four decades
opinion Neal Rubin The Detroit News Published 11:58 PM EST Dec 3, 2018 Detroit — Vaughn Derderian will hand over the keys to the Anchor Bar on Tuesday morning, and all he wants now is the peace and tranquility of his 25 woodsy acres near Gladwin — except for Saturday, which he'll spend at a union hall with 500 raucous, giddy kids. The closing of the deal marks the end of an era for an iconic downtown bar, and not just "iconic" in the sense that media people drink there. As for the throng of underprivileged children, they mark one of the highlights of the Christmas season for Most Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Corktown — and as Derderian says so long to the saloon business, one of his few concerns is the 57-year-old party. "Like my father before me," said Derderian, he's been the chief shakedown artist raising money for the celebration. He's also the guy who sends a load of cheeseburgers to IBEW Local 58 Friday to feed the volunteers handling the … [Read more...] about As Anchor Bar changes owners, Derderian thinks of kids’ holiday party
