Portland cycling leaders at front of transgender cycling fight

Portlander Molly Cameron in Bicycling. Anti-transgender legislation proposed in many states across the country has spurred local cycling leaders to step up, speak out, and fight back. According to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), 31 states are currently considering bills that would limit health care to transgender youth and/or prevent transgender youth from playing sports. Arkansas is one of the states leading the charge. It’s also slated to host the 2022 UCI Cyclocross World Champi...

So, You Wanna Be a Backcountry Skier?

So, you want to be a backcountry skier or snowboarder? Great choice. No more chairlift rides or moguls for you because there’s a whole world of incredible, untracked mountains out there to explore. But the backcountry isn’t all powder and sunshine. There’s also breakable crust, bushwhacking, and of course, avalanche hazard. Put simply, the backcountry is a wicked learning environment, and it’s not for the unprepared. This isn’t a checklist for your first tour or a gear guide that will fully equ...

Angels reliever Ty Buttrey says he ‘lost the drive’ to continue MLB career

Ty Buttrey said that he accomplished what he wanted when he reached the major leagues, and it was now time to work toward something else. Buttrey walked away from his big-league career this week, when he declined an assignment to the Angels’ alternate sign and was placed on the restricted list. Buttrey, 28, had pitched parts of three seasons with the Angels, at times as their best reliever. He explained in an Instagram post published Saturday that he no longer felt the drive needed to play in th...

Want a picnic without the work? Someone can do that for you

Gloria Malaihollo straightened and smoothed out a white rug under a long and low wooden table topped with plates, utensils and candles set up on the sand near the Redondo Beach pier. Pillows were placed next to the table for seating under an umbrella staked securely into the sand to provide shade. The luxurious picnic setup stood out so much among the standard beach blankets and folding chairs that a few people walking by stopped to snap photos. But Malaihollo wasn’t gearing up for a nice relaxi...

Video shows vicious attack of Asian American woman in NYC

By MICHAEL R. SISAK and KAREN MATTHEWS NEW YORK (AP) — A vicious attack on an Asian American woman near New York City’s Times Square is drawing widespread condemnation and raising alarms about the failure of bystanders to intervene amid a rash of anti-Asian violence across the U.S. A lone assailant was seen on surveillance video Monday kicking the 65-year-old woman in the stomach, knocking her to the ground and stomping on her face, all as police say he shouted anti-Asian invectives at her.

Leigh Bardugo talks ‘Rule of Wolves,’ Netflix’s ‘Shadow and Bone’ series and heroic women

When Leigh Bardugo finished “Ruin and Rising,” the third book in her Shadow and Bone trilogy published in 2014, she wanted a break from the Grishaverse, the Russian-inflected fantasy world that she had been building in her novels. A billboard changed all that. The L.A.-based author didn’t actually want to see what was being advertised — the film “The Monuments Men” — but it got her thinking about “Oceans 11” and that generated another idea. “I had to pull over to the side of the road because I r...

How El Monte and the San Gabriel Valley inspire writer Carribean Fragoza’s writing

As a journalist, Carribean Fragoza has focused her keen sense of observation on stories about subjects ranging from gentrification in Boyle Heights to fitness classes in El Monte. “I’m always amazed by the wildness of the world, the actual, factual world,” she says. “The world is full of real stories that are amazing all by themselves. They don’t need my imagination to do anything to them.” Last year, her essay, “All the Zumba Ladies: Reclaiming Bodies and Space Through Serious Booty Shaking,” a...

How this novel illustrates a girl’s bittersweet coming of age in the 1990s

While pregnant with her only child, Forsyth Harmon’s mother heard a voice that declared her baby would grow up to become an author and an illustrator. And she did. “The voice I heard as I was growing up was my mother’s, and I very much wanted to make her premonition come true,” says Harmon, who has been an illustrator for Melissa Febos’ “Girlhood” and with Catherine Lacey on “The Art of the Affair.” Now Harmon has added writing to the mix with “Justine,” her slender novel about an adolescent...

Hoornstra: Baseball as scripted television takes another turn ‘On Deck’

Petco Park hosted the 2016 All-Star Game. Like a lot of young men in San Diego who grew up playing and watching baseball, Alex Bentley was eager to get inside. He once snuck into Comic-Con. He’d meandered onto a few movie sets in his day. But he was about to live out a fantasy too wild to be real. “Long story short, I get into the (American League) clubhouse,” Bentley said. “I tell the attendant I need a uniform (because) the Royals’ catcher might let me catch the Home Run Derby.

In 1949, toddler Kathy Fiscus fell down a San Marino well, launching the age of live TV news

In 1949, three-year-old Kathy Fiscus fell down an abandoned well in San Marino. The accident led to a weekend-long rescue effort that was broadcast live on local television and became national news. The ordeal would end tragically – by the time that rescuers were able to reach her, the little girl had died – and the event reshaped media, and American culture, in the process. USC professor William Deverell has long been fascinated by this story and that has resulted in his new book, “Kathy Fiscus...

The Hero Who Couldn’t Care Less – The PJ Gustafsson Hump Day

Originally published November 2017 By Nick Lipton I missed the way it was. Local shops and big video premiers, the Forum team, $20 lift tickets and Scotty Wittlake’s neck tats. I missed Mark Frank Montoya’s rap videos and Robot Food blowing minds. I missed everything about KidsKnow, ducking ropes and bad kid shit. I missed it so much that eventually I began to believe snowboarding was dying. But I was wrong. Just another idiot who had lost his way. But from the darkness came a light. And in a s...
