The first location, a tiny stand, opened its doors in Baldwin Park on Oct. 22, 1948. In-N-Out will mark the occasion by releasing its 2019 T-shirt in restaurants on Monday, according to Denny Warnick, vice president of operations. And an official party will take place Nov. 17 at the Fairplex in Pomona in partnership with Hot Rod Magazine.

Tying down a car on a trailer
By Mike Moffitt, SFGATE Published 10:14 am PDT, Wednesday, September 19, 2018 Now Playing: A dog remained tied a semi-truck, and could’ve ended up on the highway if it wasn’t for a sheriff volunteer. Courtesy: Yavapai County Sheriff's Office Media: Fox 13 Tampa A trucker made a horrific mistake that nearly resulted in tragedy after a fuel stop earlier this month in Yavapai County, Ariz. The man, who was not identified, had pulled out his tractor-trailer and was headed to the interstate, when a volunteer of Yavapai County Sheriff's Office noticed that a small dog was tied to the rear of the trailer. The pooch was desperately running to keep up with the rig. According to a post on the sheriff's office's Facebook page Monday, the Volunteer in Protection (VIP), who also was not identified, was leaving the parking lot on his way to assist a deputy after a quick stop for a drink break.

Sharon Cohen, Ap National Writer Updated 11:55 am CDT, Thursday, September 6, 2018 Now Playing: Why are Native American women going missing and facing violence at disproportionate rates? Is it racism, lack of resources, mistrust, a confusing jurisdictional maze _ or all of the above? (Sept. 5) Media: Associated Press VALIER, Mont. (AP) — The searchers rummage through the abandoned trailer, flipping over a battered couch, unfurling a stained sheet, looking for clues. It's blistering hot and a grizzly bear lurking in the brush unleashes a menacing growl. But they can't stop. Not when a loved one is still missing. The group moves outside into knee-deep weeds, checking out a rusted garbage can, an old washing machine — and a surprise: bones. Ashley HeavyRunner Loring, a 20-year-old member of the Blackfeet Nation, was last heard from around June 8, 2017. Since then her older sister, Kimberly, has been looking for her. She has logged about 40 searches, … [Read more...] about #NotInvisible: Why are Native American women vanishing?
Phoebe Wall Howard Detroit Free Press Published 4:56 p.m. UTC Aug 29, 2018 MAUNABO, Puerto Rico — A light rain is falling, as happens most days on a tropical island. A man leans over to grab his bulletproof vest off the back of a chair. He pulls the heavy material over his arms and onto his shoulders while perspiration drips slowly down his face. The body armor protects his 6-foot-2-inch frame. But the 19-year police veteran says nothing can protect him from the nightmares of failed rescues and destroyed homes he has seen since Hurricane Maria last year devastated his island, home to 3 million American citizens. He turns away, rubbing his eyes. “Don’t confuse my tears as negative,” said Eleobadis Delgado, who since Maria has declined job offers in Chicago that would move him closer to his children and grandchildren.

Chevrolet has been in the business of building trucks for 100 years and chose to celebrate with an all-new Silverado. It was no small debut when the automaker gave everyone a first look in December at a special event in Texas where the new Silverado was lowered onto a field from a helicopter. Since then, Chevrolet has released more details on this new truck. The 2019 Silverado is fully redesigned with a new look and a huge lineup with eight basic-to-luxurious trims offering plenty of off-road capability, courtesy of the Trail Boss trims. Chevrolet takes these trims and spreads them out into three groups. The first three —Work, Custom, and Custom Trail Boss — are high value. They’re light on convenience features and come with more affordable price tags. In the middle are the LT, new RST, and LT Trail Boss. These are the high-volume trims Chevrolet expects most of its customers will buy. They offer a balance of features with a higher price but manage to keep from … [Read more...] about The all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado has a brand-new look
