Clippers coach Doc Rivers denies assertion that sports figures are ‘fanning flames of hatred’

In respect to social and racial justice, the NBA has spoken loudly, with words and deeds, during their weeks in the bubble — including putting a stop to the action last month after the Milwaukee Bucks decided not to take the court following the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Doc Rivers’ voice has been among those leading the discussion. His impassioned statements on issues related to police abuse and racism in the United States drew praise from his colleagues and others, i...

Ferrer faces tough coronavirus questions from LA County supervisors

Pressed by leaders frustrated with the pace of reopening Los Angeles County’s giant, pandemic-humbled economy, Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer on Tuesday defended her department’s gradual approach. And she stood firm that it will be weeks before restrictions on schools and businesses will ease. The lengthy Q&A with the Board of Supervisors came as board members are getting earfuls from business interests and constituents, many indignant and confused as to why certain kinds of businesses ca...

Another horse dies from racing injury at Los Alamitos

Another horse has died at Los Alamitos Race Course — the 25th horse to die from a racing or training injury at the Cypress track this year. Bob E McGee, a 2-year-old gelding, crossed the finish line in fourth place in Sunday night’s fourth race, but suffered a catastrophic injury in the cool-down and did a full somersault, throwing jockey Jairo Rangel. His death was later confirmed by the California Horse Racing Board. Bob E McGee had run four races, all at Los Alamitos. He was owned by Bobby Si...

Google doodle honors Orange County’s Felicitas Mendez

Google’s logo doodle on Tuesday honors an Orange County woman who helped lead the fight to end segregation in California schools. In the drawing that appeared on Google’s homepage Sept. 15, a smiling Felicitas Mendez is shown watching a crowd of happy children of all races walk into a school. Her three children, led by her husband Gonzalo, are among them. That image would have been pure fantasy in the early 1940s, when her children were barred from entering a “white” school in Westminster becaus...

Alexander: Candace Parker, superstar and mentor

Bubble life in this summer of Pandemic Sports can lead to some weird experiences. As Candace Parker of the Sparks noted Tuesday, you wind up bumping into people you wouldn’t have dreamed of seeing under ordinary circumstances. “I was walking in the lobby of the hotel yesterday and I saw a ref swimming laps in the pool,” Parker said, half incredulously, on a Zoom conference Tuesday from the WNBA’s Bradenton, Fla. bubble. “To me, I think it’s just weird to see everybody as human beings (instead of...

Dodgers face unfamiliar territory with unique postseason format

The postseason is very familiar territory for a Dodgers team that has played 66 postseason games over the past seven seasons. But this October will offer a very different environment. The postseason format announced by MLB on Tuesday gives the top four teams in each league three home games in the newly-created Wild Card Series before shipping everyone into postseason “bubbles” in Southern California and Texas. No fans in stadiums will minimize any home-field advantage anyway. MLB commissioner Ro...

With mammoth Bobcat fire looming, firefighters draw battle lines along Mt. Wilson’s steep slopes

Fire crews stood poised atop Mount Wilson on Tuesday, Sept. 15, strategizing in the shadow of billions of dollars worth of communications infrastructure and history-shaping telescopes. With the Bobcat fire’s various smoky layers dancing as close as 500 feet away, snaking upward toward the complex from various wooded routes, the team’s mission was simple: Protect the familiar towers. Already, a fiery tendril from the forest blaze crested a steep ridge around midday and wound toward an observation...

Parents turn to pods for distant learning

A distance learning school schedule isn’t easy to keep up with, specifically for young students, and especially for parents. Some families are relying on each other for help by forming learning pods, while other families are looking for services to watch over their students. Vaughn Mims, a father of two teenage boys, has turned an athletic facility in Chatsworth into a distant learning daycare, a mega learning pod so to speak. 1st Place Sports Complex is a 20,000-square foot venue that is normal...

Le Tour Takes On Added Importance In 2020

The discipline of cycling has gone through a tumultuous year and with the threat of the Tour’s existence being called into question, the mere sight of pedals being turned in Nice would have offered a collective sigh of relief for all. None more so than for race director Christian Prudhomme and although he will be able to give himself a pat on the back after making sure the race did get underway, he, unfortunately is not immune to the pandemic that has swept across the world in 2020.

Facing sheriff’s scorn, L.A. County leaders seek to reduce jail population

Efforts to keep L.A. County’s jail population low took a step forward on Tuesday after the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors approved an effort to create a Jail Population Council. But it met with immediate pushback from the sheriff, who said it was his office’s authority alone to control that population, and that it has fallen as low as it can go. The new council will oversee efforts to “safely reduce the rate of incarceration in Los Angeles County,” to align it with the county’s Care Fir...

The influence of climate change on wildfire seasons can’t be ignored, but California’s leaders need to focus on more practical, near-term solutions to contain future wildfire outbreaks.

Gavin Newsom warned the nation about the threat of global warming. “Observe it with your own eyes,” he said. “The debate is over, around climate change. This is a climate damn emergency.” Clim...
