Golf: Presidents Cup captain Woods says cleared air with Reed

Speaking after the first round at the Hero World Challenge, an event he hosts in the Bahamas, Woods addressed an issue that could affect the harmony on the U.S. team he will captain at next year's Presidents Cup in Australia.

The thrills and chills of a Democratic supermajority

A blue-wave blowout in California has swept Democrats into total and unchecked control of state government, and that carries both risks and opportunities. There are opportunities to do difficult things, including the long-elusive goal of many in both parties to reform the California Environmental Quality Act, CEQA. There are risks that new and higher taxes may be imposed without debate or restraint. A two-thirds majority in both the Assembly and Senate is required to pass tax increases, override...

The California GOP doesn’t have to be that irrelevant

From across California, the obituaries for the California Republican Party have come thick and fast ever since the November election. After all, the GOP’s onetime national stronghold in Orange County now lacks even a single Republican in Congress. All statewide officeholders also are Democrats, from the governor right through the nominally nonpartisan state school superintendent. Democrats hold majorities of more than two-thirds in both houses of the Legislature, allowing them to pass any tax in...

Work as one state to fight homelessness – and NIMBYism

Homelessness is not a one-city problem. If you’re without a roof over your head — other than the one in that pop-up pup tent you are carrying around — it doesn’t make much difference to you if you are in Santa Ana or Santa Clarita, Alhambra or Anaheim. (With winter approaching, it surely does make a difference that you are in temperate California and not in freezing North Dakota.) But since the worst social problem affecting our state is everywhere, that’s why it’s a good thing that California’s...

Cowboys overcome huge Randy Gregory penalties in defensive gem vs. Saints

A pair of huge penalties on Randy Gregory couldn’t stop the Dallas Cowboys from putting on the defensive show of the NFL season in Thursday’s 13-10 win over the New Orleans Saints. Dallas kept the high-octane New Orleans Saints offense out of the end zone through most of three quarters on Thursday, and looked poised to head into the fourth quarter with a 13-3 lead intact. With 2:33 left in the quarter, the Cowboys picked up a defensive stop near midfield, forcing the fourth Thomas Morstead punt ...

Chargers defensive backs carefully study for test against Steelers Antonio Brown, JuJu Smith-Schuster

COSTA MESA – When Desmond King sits down at the start of the week to study opposing receivers, the Chargers’ shutdown nickel cornerback first scours tape to note every possible tendency he can find. How do they release off the line? How do they come out of their breaks? How do they catch the ball? Each answer offers a kernel of insight into how King might exploit the wideout across from him, and through 12 weeks of a breakout season, King has done his fair share of exploiting. From his place in ...
