A plan to house homeless youth at LA public schools has drawn the ire of West San Fernando Valley residents.

Alexander: No, the Desert Classic will not go unsponsored

LA QUINTA — On today’s PGA Tour, if your tournament doesn’t have a sponsor’s name attached it means one of two things. Either you’re a major and you’re too big to fail, or you’re in trouble. The Tournament Formerly Known As The Bob Hope has been down this sponsorless road before, in 2010 and 2011, and at that point it was pretty well assumed that the Coachella Valley’s annual January tour stop was at death’s door.

The tributes in the obituaries of the late President George Herbert Walker Bush have been effusive and kind in the wake of his death Friday night at his Houston home, aged 94. It entirely marked the passing of an era, many noted — the time of the greatest generation that won World War II. Every president from Franklin Delano Roosevelt through “the first” Bush served in that war, meaning it was the major event in the lives of our national leaders from 1940 through 1993. Bush served as president f...
