Dodgers end World Series title drought after come-from-behind win in Game 6

ARLINGTON, Texas — In a year that has been so improbable – for all of us – the possible finally happened. Benefiting from a reverse Grady Little, the Dodgers rode a two-run burst in the sixth inning and an impeccable bullpen performance to a 3-1 victory in Game 6 of the World Series on Tuesday night at Globe Life Field. The franchise that once made “Wait ’til next year” its unfortunate slogan for years has nothing more to wait for now. Tuesday’s win came on the 16th anniversary of the Boston Red...

Fleeing smoke and flames, Orange County residents scramble to find safe landing spots

Eileen Gomez and her son were thrilled when they moved to a Yorba Linda community with beautifully manicured tree-lined streets, half-acre yards and friendly neighbors whose homes sit in a valley with large canyons on either side. “It is so peaceful, especially coming here from Los Angeles and all its congestion,” Gomez said. That sense of rural tranquility changed dramatically Monday when strong Santa Ana winds from the east whipped up a firestorm that charred nearby canyons and ridges and whic...

Dodgers bonded closer together during bubble life at Globe Life Field

Fourteen members of the Dodgers’ 2018 World Series team participated in the World Series this year, so familiarity among players and coaches ran high long before anyone reported to spring training in February, or summer camp in July. Still, the 60-game regular season did not allow Manager Dave Roberts as much time as usual to get to learn his new players’ capabilities – or for the players to get to know each other in a socially distanced world. Game 6 of the World Series was the Dodgers’ 18th po...

Rams release kicker Samuel Sloman, seek ‘stability’ from Kai Forbath

In beating the Chicago Bears on Monday night, the Rams avoided almost all of the problems that plagued them in a loss to the San Francisco 49ers the week before. Almost all. Samuel Sloman had a kick blocked for the third time in seven games, and it brought a quick end to his time with the Rams, who released the rookie Tuesday morning. That means Kai Forbath, the former Notre Dame High (Sherman Oaks) and UCLA kicker signed Oct. 20, will take over Sunday when the Rams (5-2) play the Dolphins (3-3)...

How the Dodgers won’t celebrate a 2020 championship

On the same day the Dodgers attempted to win their first World Series in 32 years, Los Angeles County reported 1,586 new cases of COVID-19. According to the website CovidTracking.com, 35 states reported fewer cases Wednesday. If the Dodgers celebrate a championship this week, they will not be able to do so in Los Angeles with a traditional parade or rally. The county remains in the purple tier, the highest-risk tier for COVID-19 cases in California’s four-tiered system. On May 25, in an effort t...

California behind schedule, $390 million short on Exide cleanup, state audit finds

The California Department of Toxic Substances Control is behind schedule on the cleanup of thousands of Los Angeles County properties contaminated with lead dust and will need to spend $390 million more than what it has to complete the work, according to a state audit released Tuesday.

Report finds broad racial disparities in LAPD stops

LOS ANGELES — Investigators looking into hundreds of thousands of police actions last year have found racial disparities across a broad group of traffic stops in Los Angeles, officials said Tuesday.

Newport Coast home breaks O.C. record for priciest sale of all time

A Newport Coast mansion on a double-parcel lot nearly 1 acre in size has shattered the record for Orange County’s most expensive home sale ever, closing at $61 million. Most surprising: it isn’t a front-row home on the ocean. “There are amazing houses on and off the water in Orange County,” listing agent Rob Giem of Compass said by text message Tuesday. “This one has an amazing view. The house, too, is spectacular.” Located in guard-gated Crystal Cove, the 18,717-square-foot residence closed Mon...

Strong Santa Ana winds hammer Southern California, toppling trees and trucks

Motion to study options for removing Sheriff Alex Villanueva on hold

An effort to investigate ways to remove Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva from office was delayed on Tuesday, Oct. 27, after its main sponsor on the Board of Supervisors offered to give more time to his colleagues to weigh it. While no action was taken, there were early glimpses at what could be a remarkable debate — pitting a sheriff who calls him the most transparent in the county’s history against a board intent on exerting what it says is its rightful authority to manage him. The st...
