    Vice President-elect Mike Pence will be sworn in by conservative Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas during next Friday's inauguration.

    Thomas' role was included in the official program posted on the website of the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies.

    Pence is a conservative former Indiana governor and congressman. Thomas is expected to gain a new conservative ally when President-elect Donald Trump announces his nomination to fill the vacancy of the late Justice Antonin Scalia.

    Vice President Joe Biden was sworn in by Justices John Paul Stevens in 2009 and Sonia Sotomayor in 2013, both liberal members of the nation's high court.

    A Huntington Beach man has set a record for most consecutive visits to Disneyland. Jeff Reitz, 44, has visited the park 2,000 times in a row. Reitz started visiting the park every day when he was unemployed and wanted to keep his spirits up. Employed at the VA now, Reitz continues to visit every day after work because it helps him to decompress after a long day. His favorite ride is the Matterhorn Bobsleds, which he first rode with his mom when he was 2 years old.
