    A storm system from Northern California will continue to bring rain to parts of Southern California on Monday, but Los Angeles is likely to remain dry, forecasters said. Showers have been dampening parts of San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties since Sunday. In Santa Barbara County, Sudden Peak received a total of 1.58 inches of rain and Rancho San Julian a total of 1.55 inches. In San Luis Obispo County, Oceano received 1.58 inches and Arroyo Grande received 1.53 inches. Rain is likely to continue falling over the same cities, said David Sweet, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Oxnard. A slow-moving, frontal system is essentially stalled over the area, sustaining moisture levels and leading to rainfall. “We are expecting it to sit there all day and not really move,” Sweet said, adding that it will eventually weaken and dissipate. It is not expected to move farther east than Santa Barbara.

    A flashy Brooklyn bishop robbed during a live-streamed service stole funds from a congregant and put some of them toward a payment on his $4.4 million New Jersey mansion, according to a lawsuit filed last year. Pauline Anderson accuses bishop Lamor Whitehead of convincing her to invest nearly her entire life savings in one of his firms under the promise he could help her improve her credit score and by a home, according to the suit. Anderson, 56, wrote the bishop of Leaders of Tomorrow International Churches a $90,000 check, as he promised to give her $100 monthly allowances for living expenses.

    Residents around the Northeast U.S. braced for potentially record-breaking temperatures Sunday as a nearly weeklong hot spell continued, prompting officials to warn of “dangerous” heat. At least one heat-related death, in New York, was reported during the stretch of sweltering weather. Around the region, athletic events were shortened or postponed, and cities opened cooling centers and even turned to buses to offer relief from the heat.

Much of the heat was in the Northeast, where the weather service warned of “extremely oppressive” conditions from Washington to Boston. “Numerous records highs are forecast to be tied and/or broken today in the Northeast as highs make a run at the century mark” and humidity makes it feel as hot as 105 to 110 degrees Fahrenheit (40.5 to 43 degrees Celsius), the weather service said in a forecast discussion.

    SAN JOSE — San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo has proposed a $5.3 billion budget that will extend the hours of 13 libraries to Sundays, offer $10,000 bonuses to police officers who come work for the city and provide myriad traffic safety measures. The San Jose City Council agreed in March to spend money in the 2022-23 fiscal year for priorities such as fighting homelessness and blight, bolstering public safety and boosting the local economy. If approved by the council, the new budget will take effect July 1. Liccardo said Tuesday his budget incorporates individual council members’ priorities. It was councilmembers Dev Davis and Maya Esparza’s idea, for example, to open 13 branch libraries in the city’s less resourced neighborhoods on Sundays. “We have heard clearly from many in our community that Sundays provide the most convenient time to use our libraries — fewer parents have work commitments, families have time together and students gather motivation with looming Monday deadlines,” Liccardo wrote in his budget message. According to data from a 2007 pilot program when that last happened, Sundays drew the...

    BUFFALO, New York—Sunday’s service at the Lincoln Memorial United Methodist Church had its share of parishioners in pain over personal loss from the assault a day earlier by a white supremacist who killed 10 people at a local supermarket. As Pastor George Nicholas recalled in an interview, one “visibly upset” young woman was close to a teacher who was gunned down. Another parishioner lost their uncle, shot dead in the store’s parking lot, he said. Yet another lost a good friend, Nicholas continued. The pastor knew the family of Aaron Salter, the retired police officer who died in a shootout with the gunman. Two other parishioners, both retired cops, knew Salter from their days on the police force, he said. Nicholas told The Daily Beast he did little preaching during his service. Instead, he turned the floor over to his parishioners, who he described as “hurting.” But the mood, he said, was not just one of grief—but also one of anger. “They’re angry we live in a society in which this happens over and over again. We’re not safe in...

    After the coronavirus chased the Bay to Breakers footrace out of San Francisco for two years, the legendary, colorful and hugely popular run is back. At 8 a.m. Sunday, runners will begin the 12-kilometer event near the San Francisco Bay at Howard and Main streets, and cut across the city to the Pacific Ocean, climbing the Hayes Street Hill, passing through Golden Gate Park, and crossing the finish line at the Ocean Beach parking lot.

    SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX) — Ukrainian families in the Bay Area came to Saint Michael Ukrainian Orthodox Church in San Francisco on Sunday to spend part of the holiday weekend to pray for the safety of their family and friends in that war zone and an end to the conflict. “The biggest task for us here is to pray every minute and every day and pray together,” said Yana Parubets, a Burlingame resident. On the same day that many countries in the western world celebrate Easter, Ukraine marked Palm Sunday in its calendar. It is also called Willow Sunday and includes the tradition of receiving pussy-willow branches blessed at the church. While Ukrainians at the service in San Francisco could practice their faith freely, they spent much of their time thinking about those back home who may not be able to reach a church safely or who live in a part of the country where their church was destroyed. “Every Ukrainian is just the same as every American. We love freedom. We support democracy,” said Yuliya Voskobiynyk, a San Francisco resident....

    The Queen is not expected to attend the Easter Sunday service at St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle this weekend, a royal source said today. Prince Charles and Camilla are representing her at today's Royal Maundy service at Windsor, but will then be away for Easter at their Birkhall estate in Aberdeenshire. However, other members of the Royal Family - not including the Queen, Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall - are expected to attend Sunday's service.  Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's biographer Omid Scobie claimed today that this will be the first Easter Sunday service the Queen will have missed in five decades. This is believed to have been in 1970 when the Queen was on a tour of New Zealand and Australia from March until May that year - and also missed the Maundy service.  The 95-year-old monarch has been experiencing mobility issues in recent months and now lives at Windsor, but it is anticipated that she will not be at either service.

    Screenshot via Instagram. The Pete Davidson vs. Kanye West feud raged on this weekend, with Saturday Night Live writer Dave Sirus posting screenshots of a text message spat between Kim Kardashian’s current boyfriend and ex-husband. Sirus posted the screenshots on his Instagram account with the caption “*A message from Pete*” on Sunday, and Page Six confirmed the images’ authenticity. The conversation veers wildly between Davidson seeming to offer support for West and then taking a more antagonistic tone. “Yo it’s Skete,” the texts began, with Davidson referring to himself with the nickname West uses for him. “Can you please take a second and calm down.” Davidson continued with praise for Kardashian, calling her “literally the best mother I’ve ever met” and telling West “[w]hat she does for those kinds is amazing and you are so fucking lucky that she’s your kids mom.” A significant portion of West’s public comments criticizing Davidson and Kardashian has centered around the rapper’s disagreements with Kardashian over the custody arrangements for their four children.

    A series of fast-growing wildfires in Florida has forced 1,100 homes to evacuate. Three consecutive wildfires burned through Florida over the weekend, consuming more than 10,000 acres of land in the process, and forced more than a thousand residents to leave their homes. The largest fire, which has grown across 9,000 acres since Friday near Bertha Swamp Road in Gulf County, is a "big boy," Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said at a press conference on Sunday. "It's moving very quickly." DeSantis noted that several emergency responders were injured during their attempts to quell the fire, but he did not provide detail about how many or what sort of injuries.
