USC men’s basketball season in review: Trojans never took flight in 2019

USC basketball coach Andy Enfield was already a little irritated. It was mid-October, three weeks before the Trojans were to play their first game. About half of the team’s scholarship players were sidelined for practices. Their 5-on-5 workouts were postponed. “It’s been the most unusual preseason in our coaching careers,” Enfield lamented at the time. A critical period for a reworked roster to jell was lost. The early setbacks were signs the Trojans’ season was poised for trouble. They never se...

Longstanding Sherman Oaks newsstand re-opens with new business model but not much news

When Tarzana resident Dana Belle bought the Sherman Oaks Newsstand three years ago – a 90-foot-long booth selling an array of local and international magazines, periodicals and newspapers – she didn’t pay much mind to the imperiled nature of the print journalism industry. “I wanted to own a piece of L.A. that’s history,” she said Monday of the business at the corner of Ventura and Van Nuys boulevards that was once a bustling outdoor library for curious-minded locals. She saw value in the nostalg...

Is Trump really about to attack Venezuela?

Last week Secretary of State Mike Pompeo ordered the last of the US diplomats out of Venezuela, saying their presence was a “constraint” on US policy toward the country. The wording seemed intended to convey the idea that the US is about to launch military action to place a Washington-backed, self-appointed politician to the presidency. Was it just bluster, designed to intimidate? Or is the Trump Administration really about to invade another country that has neither attacked nor threatened the U...

Goalie Announcements (Mar 18)

It was a full weekend away from the computer, so if you missed all of these goalie posts over the weekend, I've got some bad news... it's getting really, really nice outside and there might be more time spent out there now.  I'm just giving you fair warning.  Granted, I'm thinking that if time permits, these posts will continue down the stretch, even though most races are already taken care of [Author: Clayton Corley]

Edison makes changes at San Onofre, ready to resume loading nuclear waste

The blue Pacific shimmered and rippled through waves of heat, much like what rises from a car’s roof on a hot summer day. But here, the heat comes not from the sun, but from 29 vents allowing nuclear waste to cool at the shuttered San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station. Nearby, four giant canisters stood outside the fuel pool buildings, awaiting the green light from regulators that will allow Southern California Edison to resume transferring the highly radioactive waste from wet to dry storage in...
