SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - California's Capitol is awash in sexual harassment allegations, creating an atmosphere that's affecting how men and women interact. Holding meetings over drinks after a hectic day in the Legislature is a regular part of Sacramento, but behavior at such events has crossed into inappropriate territory. It was recently revealed that Assemblyman Raul Bocanegra was disciplined in 2009 as a legislative staffer. Another staffer says he stalked her around a nightclub and put his hands down her blouse.
MANTECA, Calif. (AP) - Two U.S. servicemen whose remains were identified more than six decades after they were killed overseas during World War II will finally get funerals in their California hometowns. The Defense Department says Army Air Forces 1st Lt. Homer Spence and Marine Corps Reserve Assistant Cook Frank Masoni will be buried Saturday with military honors.
SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) - Authorities clearing homeless encampments along a Southern California river have found at least two makeshift underground bunkers, including one that contained more than a thousand bicycles. The Orange County Register reports that county officials say the bikes found in the tunnel system under a flood-control channel could suggest a large-scale theft ring. Officials evicted homeless people from along the Santa Ana River amid concerns about unsanitary conditions.
(AP) - The performers at the 2017 American Music Awards are evenly split between men and women, but the nominees, not so much. In categories like artist of the year and favorite pop/rock album, where men and women compete, no female acts are in contention. Other categories where male acts dominate include tour and video of the year. Halsey is the only female nominated for favorite pop/rock song and collaboration of the year. Julia Michaels is the only woman up for new artist of the year.
