As NBA transactions tip off, Clippers’ moves remain hypothetical

In the Instagram photo, a masked-up JaMychal Green is standing in a supermarket, hoisting a frozen turkey in each hand to promote his charity’s Nov. 21 holiday food giveaway in Montgomery, Ala. It was an admirable gesture of goodwill – but was it also a signal of something else? The 30-year-old forward is, after all, wearing a T-shirt and shorts adorned with the Clippers’ logo in the picture he posted Monday, the day the NBA reopened its transaction window? Green, 30, entered the week as the onl...

Rams think Andrew Whitworth can play again this season

Rams coach Sean McVay said Monday that left tackle Andrew Whitworth, safety Taylor Rapp and kicker Kai Forbath will go on injured reserve after getting hurt in Sunday’s victory over the Seattle Seahawks. In Whitworth’s case, the news wasn’t as bad as feared, although it can’t be good for a team to lose the 6-foot-7, 330-pound protector of its quarterback’s blind side at a time when it needs its offense to step up. Whitworth’s left-knee injury, a grade 3 sprain of the medial collateral and poster...

Gov. Newsom says surge of COVID-19 cases might delay release of new guidelines for high school, youth sports competition

Citing the spread of coronavirus cases as the culprit, Gov.

Speaking during a news conference about the state’s response to the pandemic, Newsom said he reviewed guidelines for high school and youth sports to return to competition and “s...

NCAA looking at Indianapolis for all of March Madness

The University of Maryland-Baltimore County pulled off one of the greatest upsets in American sports history at the 2018 NCAA Tournament, knocking off Virginia to become the first No. 16 seed to beat a No. 1. The madness kept coming that March from Pittsburgh to San Diego. Top-ranked Xavier lost in the second round and so did No. 2 seeds North Carolina and Cincinnati.

Work on 57/60 Freeway fix to begin 2 years ahead of schedule

The 2.5-mile stretch where the 57 and 60 freeways join — a highway nightmare rated the worst truck bottleneck in California — is recommended to receive $218 million from gasoline tax funds for widening and realignment, state and local officials announced Monday, Nov. 16.

With Harris’ U.S. Senate seat in the mix, Southern California leaders lobbying governor hard

Elected leaders from Los Angeles to the Inland Empire this week are ramping up their lobbying efforts on Gov. Gavin Newsom, urging him to pick a Latino or an African American person to replace U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris as she ascends to the role of vice president. Two weeks after the Nov. 3 election, dueling news conferences among advocates are planned this week, with the prospect of highlighting an intra-party lobbying effort that up until now has been remained behind the scenes.

Chargers have a special teams problem, but it doesn’t stop there

The Chargers have routinely hidden their substandard special teams play because of their late-game failures, often leaving the post-game blame for the offense or defense. But the special teams blunders were unable to hide Sunday during the Chargers’ 29-21 loss to the Miami Dolphins at Hard Rock Stadium. The Dolphins built a 14-0 lead in the first quarter because of a blocked punt and a series-extending offsides penalty during a field-goal attempt. “I was disappointed in special teams and some of...

Whicker: Winners and losers at this year’s Masters

To paraphrase Duane Thomas, it was not the ultimate Masters. They’re planning another one in April. Did Dustin Johnson play the ultimate Masters? Evidence lands on both sides. It’s one case of equivalence that isn’t false. In shooting 20-under-par 268, Johnson seized the 72-hole record of 270 that Tiger Woods and Jordan Spieth shared. He also bested the present field by five strokes. No one had won a Masters by five or more since Woods’ frontier-breaking 12-shot romp in 1997. Yet Woods’ victory,...

Expired unemployment benefits, EDD debacles sink jobless Californians

By Orlando Mayorquin, CalMatters As coronavirus resurges eight months into a devastating pandemic, many jobless Californians have exhausted their options and are hanging on to what little government support remains. Once padded by an extra $600 a week from the federal coronavirus relief bill, many of the state’s unemployed say their benefits are just enough to survive — if they can get them. Inundated with more than 15 million claims since March, the Employment Development Department is stru...

TriMet GM stays positive as reality of SW Corridor project loss settles in

(Photo: Jonathan Maus/BikePortland) This morning TriMet General Manager Doug Kelsey had the unenviable task of hosting the final meeting of the SW Corridor Light Rail Project Steering Committee. The project was set to receive $975 million from the Metro funding measure that failed at the ballot box on November 3rd. Without the money, there’s no path forward for the project and officials say it will be put to bed until further notice. The steering committee is made up of elected officials fr...
