TV After her turbulent days on 'The View,' Raven-Symone has come 'Home' to Disney By ALEJANDRA REYES-VELARDE Los Angeles Times LinkedIn Google+ Pinterest Reddit Print Order Reprint of this Story June 25, 2018 04:00 AM LOS ANGELES Raven-Symone is focused, unsmiling as she stands behind the door of a high school gymnasium. She breaks her gaze only to mouth lines of dialogue or burst into song, rehearsing snippets from the musical episode she's filming as the crew chatters on the other side of the door. Symone, a TV veteran at just age 32, hardly needs the practice, but she's game – bringing the same energy take after take, each time injecting her familiar vivacious attitude into her movements. This is the set of "Raven's Home," now in its second season as a spinoff of "That's So Raven," the landmark Disney Channel series that skyrocketed her to fame in 2003. She is still playing Raven Baxter, but the psychic teen in "That's So Raven," whose … [Read more...] about After her turbulent days on ‘The View,’ Raven-Symone has come ‘Home’ to Disney

Produced by Lourdes Aguiar and Cindy Cesare [This story originally aired on April 20, 2016] Every morning for the last 37 years, Jim Alt wakes up terrified -- thinking that it's 1978, and that he's just been brutally attacked on Torrey Pines State Beach. "When I become aware that I'm awake, I do not open my eyes. I put my hands on the bed, and I feel for that sheet or I feel for sand of a beach," said Alt. "You still do that?" "48 Hours" correspondent Richard Schlesinger asked. "Yes, sir," Alt replied. "Before my eyes are open I want to know where I'm at." It wasn't always this way. The beach used to be Alt's second home -- a safe place, a fun place. "You were a big surfer," Schlesinger noted. "Absolutely," Alt said. "There's not a feeling on earth like surfing. It's just -- there's a big rush inside your body." Rick Selga has felt that rush. He was one of Alt's good friends back then. "Who was the better surfer between the two of you?" Schlesinger asked Selga. "Uh, probably he … [Read more...] about Were the murders of California teens the work of a serial killer?
If you were making a collage of Florida things, you’d certainly include an alligator, some mouse ears and an orange. You could throw in a car bumper splattered with love bugs, some spaghetti models (because you, Floridian, know what those are) and perhaps the tattooed face from the @_FloridaMan Twitter account that documents the state’s abundance of odd crimes.You could also make a case for a Publix scale, the old-timey ones with the sturdy metal bars and the big, round dial-up top that antique scale collectors call "lollipops."Why the scale, and not Publix itself? All the items mentioned above, including Publix, are found in other states. Even that Florida Man mug shot is actually an Indiana man. The scale is ours. As Polk County-based Publix continues to open stores in Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, the Carolinas and Virginia, only Florida locations get the "people weigher," as Publix calls them. The thinking is that Floridians would never stand for a Publix without a … [Read more...] about Why does every Florida Publix have a big scale?
