The Chargers’ players immediately went from laughter to stunned after Lynn revealed the news. The cameras showed defensive end Joey Bo...

We’re Off: Scotland 2020

The pandemic has forced us to cancel our Scotland Golf Vacation this year. But we refuse to let that stop us from doing all the things we love in Scotland. So for the next two weeks we’ll be in Scotland, not physically but mentally. We choose to take our own imaginary vacation to those lovely links. We’re not crazy…not yet anyway. But two weeks from now who knows. United Flight 36 departed Newark Airport at 9:10 Monday night August 10th… Continue Reading →

Jubilation, anguish as race for NBA’s Western 8th seed gets as close as ever

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — He had just finished scoring 61 points in a needed win for his Trail Blazers. But Damian Lillard wasn’t done. He puffed out his chest and shouted toward press row, “Put some (expletive) respect on my name!” Of course, the people actually present for Lillard’s performance probably didn’t need any more telling. The NBA restart has been as colorful and compelling as could have been imagined, and that’s thanks much in part to a riveting race for the Western Conference eighth...

Dodgers’ offensive problems don’t start at the top, Dave Roberts says

LOS ANGELES — When the Dodgers traded for Mookie Betts, they acquired one of the best leadoff hitters in baseball. But they haven’t used him that way. In spring training, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said he would — “That’s where he feels comfortable and that’s where we’re at right now,” he said in February. Betts himself made it clear that was his preference. “That’s kind of been my whole career,” he said accurately — 567 of his 794 career starts in the big leagues have been at the top of the o...

Surf’s up, but so are dangers of rip currents, strong waves

The ocean in recent weeks has been more like a lake with small surf and balmy, warm water beckoning beachgoers who want to take a mellow dip into the saltwater. But conditions changed on Tuesday, Aug. 11, as a new swell brought strong surf to some areas of Southern California, with select spots showing waves in the 4-foot to 6-foot range, with the added danger of rip currents prompting lifeguards along the coast to keep a watchful eye on the water. An uptick in swell brings waves, rip curren...

If Harris heads to DC, Southern California could loom large in the scramble to fill her seat

Now that Democrat Joe Biden has chosen Rep. Kamala Harris as his running mate, it hasn’t dampened the political stakes in Southern California. Far from it. The political drama will likely be profound, especially if the ticket ultimately snags the White House. That would mean a U.S. senator would need replacing — with a poignant tumbling of political dominoes to follow. Perhaps the most Google’d question in the state on Tuesday — how would the U.S. Senate seat get filled? Should the Democrats win...

Whicker: Spring football is the right move for Pac-12, maybe for good

No law consigns college football to autumn, especially in a place where autumn doesn’t exist. The fallen leaves do not crackle as you walk toward the Coliseum or the Rose Bowl or Sun Devil Stadium. Octobers in L.A. do not bring sweater weather. Pac-12 football will not be played this fall, and, sure, that will leave a void. It will be no more painful than losing your 10 o’clock worship or your monthly hair appointment and not nearly as dislocating as losing your job. As the 40,000 or so empty se...

Kamala Harris’ soft-on-police past haunts her as she is named vice presidential nominee

Joe Biden’s choice of California Sen. Kamala Harris as his running mate sent a shiver Tuesday through some police reformers in Orange County and throughout the Golden State. During her tenure as California attorney general and San Francisco district attorney, Harris turned a blind eye to potentially dirty Orange County cops and refused to order DNA testing that might exonerate a condemned man. In a scandal that rocked the foundation of justice in Orange County, Harris slow-walked an investigatio...

Joe Maddon in favor of MLB playoffs in a bubble – with good weather

ANAHEIM — The Major League Baseball postseason might be headed to Southern California, regardless of what the Angels and Dodgers do, and Joe Maddon is all for it. MLB is considering bubble scenarios for the postseason, similar to what the NBA and NHL have done, in order to help protect the sport from the coronavirus. Areas with multiple MLB facilities, including Southern California, are reportedly possibilities to host the postseason. To Maddon, it’s a great idea not just because of the coronavi...

Kaiser Permanente has provided a $63 million grant to support California’s contact-tracing efforts as the state struggles to reduce the number of people who contract COVID-19.

LA City Council starts process to redraw city, LAUSD political boundaries

The Los Angeles City Council pressed the start button Tuesday, Aug. 11, on an often-contentious process to re-draw the political boundaries for the city and L.A. Unified School District every 10 years, according to the latest U.S. Census data. Depending on how lines are drawn, the political representation of various city neighborhoods, as well as the fortunes of elected officials, can shift significantly — and occasionally lead to heated power struggles. As soon as next month, city leaders are e...

Rams rookie Cam Akers thinks he can ‘do it all’ like Todd Gurley

It might be unfair to expect Cam Akers to match Todd Gurley at his best. By last year, not even Todd Gurley could do that. But that won’t stop people from comparing Akers, the Rams’ top draft pick in April, to Gurley, the former NFL Offensive Player of the Year whom the Rams released in March. The good news is there’s plenty to compare. Watch highlights, and look at stats, from Akers’ three seasons at Florida State. You don’t have to squint too hard to see similarities. “I feel like we both are ...
