It’s been roughly a week since the election and after an intense campaign, a majority of Arcata residents voted to remove the McKinley statue. It was a move supported by most of the Arcata City Council, including Arcata City councilman Paul Pitino. 

“If there’s any take away from this, I think it shows that the council is reflective of the community," Pitino said. "In 1906 (the statue) comes up and it was like 'ok that was a vision'. This was the vision then. Here, it's a hundred years later; We have a different vision."

Chuck Lorre, the mind behind huge hits that include Two and a Half Men, Mike & Molly, and The Big Bang Theory, has created a series for Netflix. It's set in Hollywood, but is really about the biggest show of all: growing old.

For nearly a month, the two sisters — then ages 17 and 12 — traveled by road from their home in El Salvador to the southern border of the United States. They had no parent or relatives with them on that difficult journey in the fall of 2016 — just a group of strangers and their smugglers.
