As dust settles on chaos in D.C., accounting begins in Southern California

Even as the House of Representatives laid the groundwork Monday for a second impeachment of President Donald Trump, one of his supporters, Jessica Martinez, took heavy political fire 3,000 miles away in her role as a member the Whittier City Council. Martinez was in Washington D.C. last week when Trump supporters broke into the U.S. Capitol in the hope of upending the recent presidential election. Now, many in the city of 86,000 want her to step down from the council. She’s hardly alone. From lo...

Newsom budget spends windfall on pandemic victims

While California’s overall economy is still being battered by the COVID-19 recession and unemployment remains high, its tax revenues have shown amazing resiliency. The recession’s impact has fallen largely on lower-income Californians while those on upper rungs of the socioeconomic ladder, whose taxable incomes are the most important source of state revenues, have continued to prosper. Thus the $54 billion budget deficit that Gov. Gavin Newsom projected last summer as the economy tanked never ap...

Whicker: Former Hart High QB Brady White left no unfinished business at Memphis

If we haven’t understood what Brady White has been showing us for six years, a seventh won’t matter. White’s college career is done. You might expect him to take a year’s worth of deep breaths. Instead, the Hart High alum who attacked football and academics like a starved shark at Arizona State and Memphis will now try pro football, even though he could have become a seventh-year senior. He can resume the pursuit of his doctorate at any point. Odds are it won’t get away. White just won the Campb...

Alexander: NHL returns after an offseason unlike any other

If there were any questions about the precarious nature of the National Hockey League’s 103rd season, which begins this week, the protocols should put them to rest. “We’ve issued 12 protocols, spanning 213 pages,” Commissioner Gary Bettman said on a pre-season Zoom conference on Monday. “As I told the (general) managers and coaches, the protocols were not a suggestion or a recommendation. They will need to be done in order for us to address and get through the pandemic, and we will vigorously en...

Concern grows as NBA cancels more games due to COVID-19

It was never a matter of “if.” It was a matter of “when,” and “how many.” The NBA always knew if it proceeded to play a 72-game regular season outside of the bubble, there would be cases. In December, Commissioner Adam Silver called it “somewhat inevitable.” That might be one reason why on Sunday, after the NBA canceled a game between the Miami Heat and the Boston Celtics due to not enough available players, Lakers coach Frank Vogel said he didn’t know how far the situation would need to unravel...

Trump’s unwieldy populism has taken the right off a cliff

Donald Trump was elected to be the bull in the china shop. He was chosen to challenge the status quo, to stand up to out-of-touch elites in Washington, D.C. And for four years, he said and did things far beyond the norm. Four years later, where do things stand? Well, Donald Trump lost re-election. States, courts, and now Congress have all validated that. Republicans lost two United States Senate seats in Georgia and by extension, control of the Senate.  Republicans actually did impressively well...
