    A Long Beach man sued the state and California Lottery Commission Friday, alleging he was wrongfully denied a $5 million Scratchers ticket prize because his 16-year-old son bought the winning ticket.

    Ward Thomas' Los Angeles Superior Court lawsuit alleges failure to discharge a mandatory duty, breach of contract, negligence and both intentional and negligent representation. The suit seeks unspecified damages.

    A California Lottery representative did not immediately reply to a request for comment.

    Thomas says his son bought five Scratchers tickets at a Mobil station on Bellflower Boulevard in Long Beach on Oct. 16 by exchanging other winning tickets. One of the five was a winning ticket with a $5 million prize, the suit states.

    Thomas validated the ticket at a 7-Eleven store in Long Beach that same day and then validated it again the next day at the lottery office in Santa Ana, the suit states.

    However, on Dec. 5, the Lottery Commission told Thomas that his award was being denied because his son was a minor and therefore was "not legally able to play the lottery," the suit states.

    The complaint does not state how the commission knew Thomas' son bought the tickets and that the purchaser was under age 18.

    No one at the gas station, which also is a defendant, told Thomas' son that he was too young to buy a lottery ticket, the suit states.

    The suit further alleges the commission failed to enforce its own rules in the operation of the lottery and that the commission engaged in false advertising by not publicizing that lottery ticket buyers had to be at least 18 years old.

    Detectives are searching for a 51-year-old woman suspected of abducting her granddaughter in Victorville.

    Aleysha Martinez-Ruiz, 5, was last seen by her mother at 15251 Seneca Road in Victorville around 3 p.m. Friday. She was with her grandmother, Luz Maria Garza-Ramones, who was visiting from Mexico.

    "It is believed Luz Maria is trying to take Aleysha back to Monterrey to be with the rest of the family," Victorville police said in a statement.

    Martinez-Ruiz was last seen wearing a white dress with a gold zipper on the back. She has black hair, brown eyes, is 3 feet 6 inches tall and weighs 50 pounds.

    Garza-Ramones was described as having blonde hair, brown eyes, is about 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs 220 pounds. She was last seen wearing a red blouse and blue shorts.

    Garza-Ramones does not have a car, so they may be using buses.

    Detectives urged anyone with information about the case to call Det. Long at 760-241-2911.

    PASADENA--Forty-two thousand, three hundred and ninety-three fans turned up at the Rose Bowl on Sunday to watch Mexico take on Jamaica in the Gold Cup semifinal, and the vast majority of those fans left the stadium disappointed.

    Jamaica's Kemar Lawrence stepped up in the 88th minute to knock in a free kick goal from just outside Mexico's penalty area, and Mexico goal keeper Jesus Corona simply did not react in time to stop the well-placed shot.

    Jamaica won 1-0 in front of a crowd that was soaked in the green, red and white colors of the nation that shares a border with the United States. When the Mexican team left the pitch, it heard a chorus of jeers from the fans that had stuck around past the final whistle.

    With the victory, Jamaica now advances and faces the United States on Wednesday in Santa Clara on Wednesday.

    On the day, Jamaica's goal keeper Andre Blake probably deserved the most credit for the result, as Mexico's seven shots on target all failed to beat the living wall that was Blake. Lawrence may have hit the match winning goal, but Blake kept Jamaica in the match after Mexico had dominated possession 64 percent to 36 percent.

    Of course, Mexico falling short of Wednesday's final means that the dream CONCACAF USA versus Mexico final is not to be. However, the reggae boys of Jamaica provide the U.S. Mens' National Team with a far greater threat on the break with their pace. Add in that Jamaica nearly scored off a free kick earlier in the match, and the United States could be Jamaica's next victim if Bruce Arena's men come in not ready to play.

    Ultimately, though, the United States should be heavily favored to win Wednesday's final considering the match is on U.S. soil and Jamaica is not considered one of the confederation's heavy weights.

    All that said, Sunday night's 1-0 result in Pasadena was well deserved by the Jamaicans.

    Snooty, the world’s oldest known manatee, died Saturday in what the South Florida Museum called a "heartbreaking accident," just one day after celebrating his 69th birthday.

    The museum in Bradenton made the announcement Sunday afternoon in a statement on its website and in social media postings.

    “Our initial findings indicate that Snooty’s death was a heartbreaking accident and we’re all quite devastated about his passing,” museum CEO Brynne Anne Besio said in the statement.

    Besio added that the museum staff members "deeply mourn his passing."

    Early indications show that an underwater door leading to a plumbing area, which is normally bolted shut, had been dislodged. Snooty was able to swim in but was not able to get out.

    The animal was no longer alive when workers got to him. Three other, smaller manatees that also swam in were able to swim out.

    Officials are investigating the exact circumstances of Snooty's death and how the door opened. The museum's aquarium remained closed on Sunday.

    A necropsy, or an animal autopsy, will be performed at the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s Marine Mammal Pathobiology Laboratory in St. Petersburg. 

    Snooty, according to the museum, was born July 21, 1948, and was the first manatee born in captivity. He became the mascot of Florida's Manatee County in 1979 and welcomed more than a million visitors in his lifetime.

    Snooty also participated in scientific research programs that studied manatee biology and behavior.

    The oldest man in the United States, a Bay Area native, died Saturday at 111 years old at his Southern California home.

    Clarence "Larry" Matthews was born in Oakland in 1906. A neighbor told KMIR in Palm Springs that Matthews, who had been living in Indian Wells, California, died peacefully in his sleep with his family by his side.

    Matthews moved to Indian Wells in the 1970s and starting a successful construction business in Huntington Beach.

    Matthews lived through both world wars and supported his family through the Great Depression.

    After O.J. Simpson was granted parole in a highly covered hearing Thursday, Christopher Darden recalled the personal costs he paid for being one of the Los Angeles prosecutors who tried the 1994 murder case against the former athlete.

    The former prosecutor spoke with NBC News about that famous trial, saying it was "a very dangerous time" for him. Darden explained that he and his family were harassed and threatened by those who didn't agree with the prosecution.

    With race at the center of the case, Darden said he knew it was "a no-win situation." And after agreeing to join the prosecution team, he said he had come to be seen as a "traitor" to his own race.

    "I was in a constant state of anger," Darden said.

    Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., spent the weekend outdoors about a week after undergoing surgery and being diagnosed with brain cancer, NBC News reported.

    McCain, 80, tweeted a photo Sunday afternoon of himself and a friend, Joe Harper, with their feet in the Oak Creek of Zebra Falls in Arizona.

    The senator's daughter Maghan McCain also tweeted a photo of the outing, which she used to thank supporters for their well wishes in the wake of her dad's diagnosis.

    McCain underwent surgery to remove a blood clot on July 14 and was subsequently diagnosed with glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer.

    Newly-hired White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci said Sunday that President Donald Trump is "thinking about pardoning nobody" in connection with the Russia investigation, according to NBC News.

    "The truth of the matter is that the president is not going to have to pardon anybody because the Russia thing is a nonsensical thing," Scarmucci said on CNN’s "State of the Union." However, on "Fox News Sunday," the communications director acknowledged that he and the president discussed pardons "last week."

    Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow also told ABC's "This Week" that the president's legal team has not been researching the power to pardon. A Washington Post report last week had claimed that Trump asked his advisers about his power to pardon family members, aides and even himself.

    On Saturday, Trump tweeted about his power to pardon, saying, "While all agree the U.S. President has the complete power to pardon, why think of that when only crime so far is LEAKS against us.FAKE NEWS."

    The crash occurred at 11:29 p.m. Sunday in the 8000 block of Rosecrans Avenue, said Sgt. Jose Salgado of the Sheriff's Lakewood Station.

    The man was pronounced dead at the scene, Salgado said. The occupants of the other vehicle were treated for their injuries at the scene and not taken to hospitals.

    A man was killed and a child was critically injured in Santa Ana when their vehicle crashed a car into a utility pole during a police pursuit, authorities said Monday.

    It started about 10:30 p.m. Sunday when officers responded to a call of a man brandishing a weapon in the 1600 block of South Main Street, said Santa Ana police Corporal Anthony Bertagna.

    Officers spotted the car in the area and the suspect fled when police approached, Bertagna said. The suspect crashed into a utility pole in the 1400 block of West Warner Avenue.

    The man driving the car was pronounced dead at the scene, the corporal said. A 9-year-old girl was taken to a hospital in critical condition. Firefighters used hydraulic equipment to remove the child from the car, a witness said.

    Once at the hospital, her vital signs stabilized, according to broadcast reports.

    Inside the car, investigators discovered a gun, large amounts of cash and cocaine, investigators said.

    The utility pole belonged to Southern California Edison, which reported on its website that 14 customers lost power and crews were working to restore it by 3:30 p.m.

    Crews contending with triple-digit temperatures slowed the spread of an aggressive wildfire that destroyed dozens of homes in a rural area of California near Yosemite National Park, officials said Sunday.

    The blaze burning for a week has scorched just over 118 square miles (305 square kilometers) of dense brush and dead trees in the Sierra Nevada foothills. Many evacuated residents were allowed to return, but flames continue to threaten about 1,500 homes in Mariposa County.

    The fire was 40 percent contained, but officials said it could take crews another two weeks to fully surround it.

    "They are still out in front of an uncontrolled fire, but the fire isn't moving at 30 mph (48 kph). The fire is crawling along," fire spokesman Brandon Vaccaro said Saturday. Flames spared Mariposa, a historic Gold Rush-era town, but more than 60 nearby homes and about 64 other buildings were destroyed.

    Nearly 4,500 firefighters fought the blaze using air tankers and fleets of helicopters and bulldozers.

    The fire grew by up to 47 square miles (122 square kilometers) a day at its peak. But by the weekend, the growth rate was slowed despite dry, blistering weather, Vaccaro said.

    The smoke blurred the scenic vistas of Yosemite National Park, about 35 miles (56 kilometers) west of the fire. Tourists expecting the grandeur of falls and granite peaks instead saw hazy gray silhouettes.

    Some roads remained closed. But Mariposa, with a population of about 2,000, was coming back to life.

    Steve Valdez was back at work Saturday at a hardware store despite losing his home of 17 years to the fire.

    "There are people out there who depend upon us to get power, to get water, to get their equipment fixed," he said.

    Valdez, 60, and his wife had 20 minutes to grab a few photographs, bills and some family Bibles before they fled the encroaching flames. When they returned, only the home's chimney was still standing. They plan to rebuild.

    The fire was one of more than a dozen that have ravaged California in recent weeks.

    To the south, officials have finally lifted all remaining evacuations in a stubborn fire burning for more than two weeks in the mountains of Santa Barbara County. The blaze, which destroyed 16 homes, is 87 percent and hasn't grown in size for several days.

    The fiancé of Justine Damond, the unarmed Australian woman killed by a police officer last week in Minneapolis after calling 911, says he keeps thinking about the circumstances of the fatal shooting "over and over."

    Don Damond, who is also Australian, told Justine to call 911 and stayed on the phone with his fiancé until the police arrived. Damond was in Las Vegas at the time of his fiancé's death.

    "I have played this over in my head over and over," Damond told The New York Times in his first interview since the shooting. "Why didn't I stay on the phone with her?"

    Investigators are trying to figure out what went wrong on that Saturday night when Justine, a 40-year-old life coach, called police to report a possible sexual assault happening behind her home.

    Officer Mohamed Noor, the officer who shot Damond, and his partner, Officer Matthew Harrity, did not have their body cameras on. Harrity said that he was startled by a loud noise before the shooting, The Associated Press reported. Noor has remained silent amid outcry over the case, having yet to speak with investigators. 

    Minneapolis police Chief Janee Harteau resigned on Friday at the request of Mayor Betsy Hodges in the aftermath of the shooting.

    "I've decided I am willing to step aside to let a fresh set of leadership eyes see what more can be done for the MPD to be the very best it can be," Harteau said in a statement on Friday.

    Kionte Storey is on a journey to change lives after his life was forever changed seven years ago.

    The Marine veteran was serving in Afghanistan when he lost his right leg below the knee to an improvised explosive device. He says he can handle the physical adjustment pretty well, but "it's more of a mental struggle. That's really the hardest battle of all."

    He attempted to make the U.S. Paralympics team twice as a sprinter, but after he came up short, Storey found a new passion during a trip to Antarctica: mountain climbing.

    “That was that mental breakthrough, at least for me, being on that mountain was just [an] incredible experience overall,” he said.

    Storey is now in Ecuador preparing to make a 19,000-foot climb to the top of Cayambe volcano with an organization called Range of Motion Project (ROMP). The non-profit organization provides prosthetics and orthopedic care for people in underserved countries.

    NBC 7 caught up with Storey on Cowles Mountain before he left for his healing journey. He was carrying a 40-pound backpack to help him cope with the effects of altitude during his South American climb.

    But it’s not the only weight Kionte Storey carries with him, a weight he says he used to propel him up the mountain. “The way I got to the summit was just thinking about my friends we lost overseas during our deployment," he explains. “Knowing why you're out there is really going to get you to the top." 

    Storey has raised $4,200 for the Ecuador climb, which will help 10 people get prosthetic care. But his trek is just the beginning.

    The Marine veteran’s next quest will be to climb Mount Kilimanjaro to benefit veterans with traumatic brain injuries through the Bob Woodruff Foundation. His attitude about his newfound purpose is as inspiring as his determination to overcome his challenges.

    "For me, it's just… providing as much happiness to others as I can," he said.

    As far as pairing peaches and strawberries in the same tart or pie or cake or ice cream-topping sauce?

    It does happen, now and then, and there's no arguing otherwise. But you're more apt to find peaches cozying up to other stone fruits, like apricots, in many classic desserts, while strawberries are all buddy-buddy with the other berries of the world, from blue to boysen to black to huckle.

    Where the friendship of peaches and strawberries glimmers brightest, though, at least around Southern California, is in Glendora. And when we say "glimmers" we mean the sort of sweet shimmer that a juicy fruit-stuffed doughnut gives off when a ray of light falls upon its moist middle.

    Ah, we just gave away the big reveal: It's The Donut Man we're talking about here, a morning-starting icon of the Glendora area since 1972.

    And while strawberries stick to their own doughnut at the shop, and peaches appear in their own soft, chewy pastry, the strawberry doughnut and peach doughnut, which are both seasonal treats, are both huge with The Donut Man's faithful customer base.

    It's a customer base that keeps an eye on social media to see when strawberry doughnuts come back into season (usually in the later winter) and when the peach doughnuts make their all-too-brief cameo (around the middle of summer).

    Strawberry Doughnut Season kicked off at the start of February 2017 and is still truckin' on, tangily, while Peach Doughnut Season, which traditionally has a shorter window, opened on July 19.

    These overpacked beauties, which are crammed full of fruit-a-tude, are rightly famous in a region that is known worldwide for its superior doughnut-making arts.

    The Donut Man recommends "calling ahead of time" to ensure you'll have one of these peachy and popular pastries. They're $4.25 each, and cash or check is the way to go regarding payment.

    Calling ahead is good advice when one of the most glistening go-tos of summer gourmand goodies is the foodstuff in question.

    People like the peach doughnut, they buy it, they eat it, and then, in a matter of weeks or months? Peach Doughnut Season is done, even before our fingertips have fully de-sticky'd.

    U.S. military officials confirmed two Chinese fighter jets intercepted and almost collided with a U.S. military surveillance aircraft in the East China Sea this weekend, NBC News reported. 

    One of the Chinese J-10 fighter jets flew underneath U.S. Navy EP-3 on Sunday and then suddenly was in front of the aircraft. The maneuver forced U.S. reconnaissance jet to take "evasive action" to avoid a collision, officials said.

    U.S. military officials described the maneuver was unsafe and unprofessional as they have with similar past incidents earlier this year.

    Vegetarian burgers, those meat-free patties that are typically found in the frozen aisle at our local market, have become a quick-to-make, tummy-filling staple of many at-home cooks' menu plans. 

    We call them "veggie" burgers, for short, and while they've long boasted a host of ingredients, from soy crumbles to kidney beans to various spices, few fans anticipated that a whole new sort of veggie burger would one day roll into appetite-stoking view.

    The Impossible Burger, from Impossible Foods, recently did, and the "plant-based" vegetarian patty garnered a lot of attention among food writers for how similarly it compares to a meat burger in appearance, texture, and taste. But meat, it has none, not a whit, though where to find such an unusual meat-free burger became a bit of a question mark.

    The answer? Umami Burger, known for its savory, zingily condimented meat burgers is now serving The Impossible Burger, a double-patty'd affair that comes piled high with a host of additions, including "caramelized onions, American cheese, miso-mustard, house spread, dill pickles, lettuce, and tomato..."

    The price? It's $16.95. And while many people observe Meatless Mondays on the regular, note that The Impossible Burger is available every day of the week, though supply is limited, so arriving earlier in the day to place your order is a smart move.

    That's not the only fresh thing on the Umami Burger line-up: Milkshakes made with spirits expressly for grown-up lovers of dessert drinks are also now available at Umami Burgers from The Grove to Costa Mesa. 

    Fernet-Branca is the spirited star of the Hipster Hopper, a mint chocolate concoction, while bourbon is the main player in the French Fry Hot Tub, a milkshake that includes creme de cacao, caramel, coriander, salt, and vanilla ice cream.

    It isn't every day, or even every year, that something savory like coriander winds up in a drinkable dessert, but then not ever restaurant serves a vegetarian burger that doesn't look like the traditional vegetarian burgers we know.

    Are you observing Meatless Monday? How about Meatless Every Day?

    Find your nearest Umami to try this buzzed-about non-burger burger, and, if you're over 21, and feeling that creamy beverage vibe, a grown-up, spirited milkshake, too.
