Bark Avenue Foundation helps lost dog find his way home

The Good Samaritan was mad. Whoever owned this dog he had just rescued from a busy freeway onramp in South Central Los Angeles obviously didn’t care about the dog to let him run free like this. He had been looking for an animal shelter to take the dog to for over an hour, but all the city and county shelters were closed because of COVID-19. Then, he remembered a friend telling him about a nonprofit organization called the Bark Avenue Foundation. It wasn’t a shelter but it did health care, and fr...

California should review school contracting laws

A California appeals court’s decision last month in a complex case involving a construction firm that built a Fresno middle school is more than a simple dispute about a building contract. It offers insight into the questionable ways that California’s public schools spend taxpayer dollars – and the unwillingness of the Legislature to do anything about it. The case highlights the “big money to be made” as California schools spend $100 billion annually, “which translates into political jousting for...

FBI reassembles shredded plan for 2015 San Bernardino terrorist shooting

Thin strips of paper, remnants of a handwritten diagram with notes that Rafia Sultana Shareef allegedly fed into a shredder just after the Dec. 2, 2015, San Bernardino terrorist attack, have been reassembled like a puzzle by federal investigators to provide a new account of the shooters’ planning for the siege that killed 14 people and wounded 22 others at the Inland Regional Center.

UCLA football must play smart against No. 16 USC

When UCLA hosts No. 16 USC on Saturday at the Rose Bowl, there will be a lot at stake for each team. The Bruins (3-2) have a winning record for the first time in their three seasons under Coach Chip Kelly and another win against their crosstown rival would continue that upward trajectory. It would also be the team’s third consecutive victory at home. A loss would drop the Bruins back to .500, another milestone of sorts, that the program reached this season for the first time since 2017. The Vict...

Stuck at home? You may be keeping the porch pirates away

With life reoriented around staying, working and shopping from home in 2020, one could surmise an influx of package deliveries would lead to increased opportunity for porch pirates, right? Apparently not. As the traditional “peak season” for package theft has arrived, some police agencies report that incidents have largely stayed flat or, in some places, even gone down. “Every year I get (Ring) doorbell videos from detectives. “I haven’t seen any yet this year,” said Cpl.

Chargers outcast Younghoe Koo shining as Falcons kicker

COSTA MESA — Younghoe Koo’s time with the Chargers had many highs and lows during a short span in 2017. Koo was the popular undrafted rookie kicker who went viral because of nifty trick-kick field goals, then quickly became the outcast for costly missed field goals in the first month of the season. The 0-4 Chargers released Koo after four games, as both sides went in opposite directions. The Chargers eventually found Michael Badgley, who made clutch field goals in 2018, while Koo was out of the ...

The justices refused to let Texas file a lawsuit to challenge Biden’s wins in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan and Wisconsin.
