An agonizing wait as hundreds still trying to return to homes in Woolsey fire area

When the devastating Woolsey fire swept through parts of Los Angeles and Ventura counties starting on Nov. 8, the flames left thousands of residents homeless or displaced. But while firefighters doused the remains of the blaze last week, hundreds still agonizingly wait to be allowed back to their properties — more than 21 days after the wildfire first was reported, a wide swath of the unincorporated canyon areas north of Malibu and south of Agoura Hills remain under mandatory evacuations, off li...

Rain storms in Southern California lead to worries in wildfire burn areas, some evacuations ordered in Riverside County

As rain begins to fall in Southern California from the latest storm, towns and counties prepared for the imminent problems it could cause, especially in areas previously affected by wildfires. Amid worries of mudslides and debris flow, parts of Riverside County where the Holy fire had burned in August were placed under mandatory evacuation Wednesday afternoon.

LA County Sheriff-elect Alex Villanueva moves to ‘clean house’ with top command staff

Echoing his campaign promises, Los Angeles County Sheriff-elect Alex Villanueva said Wednesday that he will move to replace most of the agency’s top command staff on “day one.” The retired sheriff’s lieutenant who beat incumbent Sheriff Jim McDonnell in a major electoral upset said he plans on ousting the current undersheriff — the agency’s second-in-command — all four assistant sheriffs and about eight division chiefs. “I said I was going to clean house and I meant it so we’re starting with tha...

A decade on, Danilo Gallinari and Devin Booker enjoy another meeting

LOS ANGELES — The first time Devin Booker met Danilo Gallinari, the Italian forward was a teenage phenom luring NBA scouts to Europe. He was the up-and-comer who had a memorable nickname – “The Rooster” – and got all the calls (too many if you asked the American players.) And Booker was, as Gallinari recalls, “a little kid.” The Phoenix Suns’ now-22-year-old shooting star was 12, in fact. He went to visit his father, Melvin, who was a professional basketball player in Milan, Italy – and a teamma...

Climate change challenge must be met with effective responses

Bad as it is to find out you’re sick, the cooler heads among us don’t go blaming the doctor. You probably knew you were sick anyway. Now you’re just glad the doc has a plan to get you healthy again. That’s the proper attitude toward, and the reason to be grateful for, the reasonable tone and the prudent suggestions made by the 13 federal agencies that created the 2018 National Climate Assessment, released last week. Was that release, on the Friday after Thanksgiving, intended to bury the report ...

Will Ocasio-Cortez try to ‘primary’ Maxine Waters in 2020?

No newly elected member of congress has garnered more TV airtime than Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-New York.  Whether she’s protesting in the office of Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, demanding a select committee on climate change or complaining about the cost of housing in Washington, D.C., Ocasio-Cortez has spent more time on cable television in the last month than reruns of “Home Alone.” Most recently, Ocasio-Cortez generated headlines supporting a group called Justice Demo...

Wildfires have put a spotlight on state’s housing shortage

Nearly 14,000 homes were destroyed by the Camp fire, including roughly 90 percent of the homes in the town of Paradise. As if more evidence was needed, the plight of residents there has put a harsh spotlight on the problem of California’s tight housing supply. According to Butte County officials, there is enough permanent housing available for about 1,000 families. Thousands of others will be living in trailers or relocating outside the county. Any crisis brings with it the opportunity to make c...

Analysis: What we’ve learned about the Lakers 20 games in

LOS ANGELES — You still hear it, but it comes up less frequently these days. Luke Walton said it Wednesday afternoon after practice: “This is a new group and we’re all figuring each other out still.” Kind of.

Here’s a look at some of the signs on the stat sheet and the locker room that the Lakers have formed their identity around: Rising and falling with LeBron James: Look, it’s not a surprise. ...

Warming Up for Your Day on the Hill

Snow is flying, resorts are opening and you want to shred!! If you are like most people the thought of “warming up” for a ski day doesn’t exist.   I admit I’m guilty of it as well. My "warm up" is putting on my boots and making my way to the lift. This is followed by joining the rest of the people stomping their feet or shuffling skis back and forth in an effort to get warm or stay warm. You can still take this approach, but you can add a few things to help prep you for the ski day. Plus, if you...
