Spark of Love helps residents of suspected arson-chared Canoga Park apartment

CANOGA PARK — Some 16 people, including seven children, who were displaced from their Canoga Park apartment building and lost all their possessions because of an arson fire received some unexpected help today when the Spark of Love program and firefighters from Station 104 delivered a sleigh full of gifts on Christmas. LAFD personnel attack a heavy fire early Tuesday Dec. 22, 2020, in an apartment building on the the 21300 block of Roscoe Boulevard in Canoga Park. (Photo by Rick McClure/Specia...

Lakers honor late Celtics great KC Jones with moment of silence

LOS ANGELES — Typically, there’s not much love in Staples Center for a Boston Celtic – especially one who authored so much pain for the Lakers. But before the national anthem on Christmas Day, the Lakers offered a moment of silence for K.C. Jones, who died Friday at 88, leaving behind a hand in 12 championships and an indelible legacy of winning. The player and coach won 11 of his 12 championships with the Celtics, with eight coming during the Celtics’ era of dominance in the late ’50s and ’60s ...

Lakers rack up points on Dallas in Christmas Day win

LOS ANGELES — The NBA’s record-setting, most efficient offense from last season took the Staples Center floor Friday night. The Lakers made them look second-rate by comparison. A Christmas Day 138-115 win over the Dallas Mavericks rang glad tidings for the Lakers offense, which rolled over their counterparts with brisk shooting figures and a variety of offensive looks. What might be most frightening for the NBA in this early stage is how balanced the Lakers were on their way to victory: Five Lak...

JaMychal Green leaving Clippers for Nuggets was ‘a sign of respect,’ coach says

As fate had it, one wrinkle in the Clippers-Nuggets rematch on Christmas night was ironed flat before the game even started. A calf strain robbed JaMychal Green of an opportunity to face off with his former teammates Friday – and to hear his new coach Michael Malone tell it, the hard-nosed, soft-spoken forward was quite disappointed about it. “He’s dying that he can’t play tonight,” Malone said in his media availability before the game in Denver, which pitted the Clippers against the team that r...

The message of Christmas brings us hope

This year might be a good one to contemplate just how unlikely and yet inspiring the Christmas story is. Christmas, of course, celebrates the birth of Jesus, who, Christians believe, came to Earth to save humankind from its multifarious sins and transgressions, to offer hope of salvation to those who believe. Yet the accretion of custom and the romanticization of the story sometimes keep us from seeing just how improbable, in terms of the ways of the world, this story is. If one thinks as the wo...

For California to thrive, it needs some new politicians

SACRAMENTO – The late, great urban theorist, Jane Jacobs, wrote in her seminal The Death and Life of Great American Cities that, “there is no leeway for such chancy trial, error and experimentation in the high-overhead economy of new construction. Old ideas can sometimes use new buildings. New ideas must use old buildings.” She was explaining that people with innovative business ideas need an inexpensive place to get started. After all, the founders of Apple, Google and Disney birthed their ente...

Rams’ Matt Gay quiets fears about the kicking game

THOUSAND OAKS — If Matt Gay lines up to try a game-winning field goal Sunday in Seattle, the Rams kicker won’t hear the familiar roar of 72,000 Seahawks fans trying to distract him. He might hear ghosts. The Rams are haunted by their memory of the last time they played the Seahawks at what is now called Lumen Field. Greg Zuerlein was counted on to make a 44-yard field goal with 15 seconds left in a game the Rams trained 30-29, but pushed the ball about six inches to the right. The loss was the n...
