RIP classic crayon.Image: mashable composite: lili sams By Nicole Gallucci2017-03-30 18:28:34 UTC Crayola has retired one of the colors from its classic 24-pack early and hearts are breaking.

The California Supreme Court decided unanimously Thursday that the city of Newport Beach failed to adequately review a large proposed development on the coastal Banning Ranch oil field before approving it. The decision, written by Justice Carol A. Corrigan, was another blow for the developers whose project was rejected last year by the California Coastal Commission.
