Vince Vaughn has bought a house for $3.925 million in an area of Los Angeles one might not normally associate with actors - La Cañada Flintridge. And while it may not have the celebrity cache of Hollywood Hills, he can count actress Angela Bassett and a host of entertainment industry types among his neighbors. Plus, the schools are good. Still, it's a far cry from the three-level penthouse he had listed atop Chicago's Palmolive Building at $16.8 million until recently. Continue reading > > -- Lauren Beale, Los Angeles Times

NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory is suspending the open house that had been scheduled for June 8 and 9, making the popular yearly gathering the latest casualty of the automatic federal budget cuts known as sequestration. The “difficult decision” to put off the event was reached Tuesday, JPL spokeswoman Veronica McGregor said in an e-mail to The Times.  “If we can hold it later in the year after the budgetary dust settles, we will,” she wrote. Last month, NASA issued an internal memo suspending “all education and public outreach activities … pending further review” because of sequestration.

A former banking and Hollywood executive testified in court Tuesday that he was not under the influence of bath salts when, as he claims in his use-of-force lawsuit, he was badly beaten during a confrontation with two Los Angeles police officers. La Cañada resident Brian Mulligan, the former vice chairman of Deutsche Bank and former co-chairman of Universal Pictures, who sued the LAPD, testified in the first day of his trial that an encounter with Officers James Nichols and John Miller in Eagle Rock in 2012 left him with 15 broken bones in his face and 54 stitches and required several surgeries, the Los Angeles Times reports . But Denise Zimmerman, an attorney for one of the officers, told jurors Mulligan was snarling and thrashing and stiffened his finger like claws.

The Angeles National Forest is raising its fire danger level from moderate to high on Friday because of the virtual abse nce of rain so far this year and forest lands full of tall, dry grasses. Nathan Judy, a spokesman for the U.S. Forest Service, said the designation is an effort to raise public awareness about just how vulnerable the forest is to a potentially devastating and fast-spreading wildfire. While the raised fire danger level does not mean new campfire restrictions, Judy said visitors are urged to be especially careful, including making sure that they do not park their vehicles on tall grasses.

Ever since President Benjamin Harrison skipped La Cañada on his 1891 Pacific rail tour, La Cañada has been disconnected. Harrison's route took him to Los Angeles, and from there to San Diego, Santa Ana, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, Pasadena, San Fernando, Santa Paula, Ventura, Santa Barbara, Bakersfield, Tulare, Fresno, Merced and to other points north. It's hard to imagine that La Cañada was less deserving of a railway system than Merced or San Fernando. La Cañadans grew grapes and other crops.
