Kings look to trusted, steady Alex Iaffalo to stabilize lineup

Seeking to halt a four-game pointless streak, the Kings looked to the familiar top line of Anze Kopitar, Dustin Brown and Alex Iafallo. The trio has skated apart at times this season, but they have been reunited in an effort to stabilize the lineup. Against Vegas on Sunday, Iafallo set up Kopitar for a goal in the opening minute. They had sound shifts early Tuesday, Iafallo’s stretch pass hitting Kopitar in stride to create the Kings’ first goal in a game they trailed 2-0. Kopitar and Brown have...

Lawsuit blames man’s COVID-19 death on commingling residents at Culver City care center

A woman has filed a lawsuit alleging her 88-year-old father died from COVID-19 last year after staff at a Culver City assisted-care facility allowed residents to commingle and failed to enforce social distancing. Jessica Hopman’s complaint against Sunrise Villa Culver City, seeking unspecified damages on behalf of Gerald Hopman, was transferred last week from state to federal court because the claims made fall under a federal emergency preparedness act. “Defendants’ failure to protect Mr. Hopman...

Super Bowl substitutes in LA: hike at Griffith Park, sandwich at Philippe

It was Super Bowl Sunday, a day that mesmerizes enough of the population that the rest of us can have some elbow room. More power to those who like football or want to take part in the spectacle. I’ve been avoiding the Super Bowl for, in Roman numeral terms, LV years now and saw no reason to break my streak. What should I do as an alternative? Where could I go that would normally be packed? I’ve shopped at Target and at Ikea. Ikea is so empty you could buy a desk, spread out the pieces and assem...

Stats needed for LA County elementary schools to reopen are within sight. But it’s no sure thing.

With coronavirus rates easing, Los Angeles County is on course to hit a key state threshold within two weeks — a statistical landmark that would allow elementary schools to reopen, the county’s chief public health officer told the Board of Supervisors on Tuesday, Feb. 9. But with a post-Super Bowl surge still a possibility, and pitched political and potential legal battles brewing within local communities, reopening that soon is far from a guarantee. On Tuesday, the county reported 227 new death...

It’s time to ‘be real’ about the bullet train

The California High Speed Rail Authority is delaying and raising the cost estimate for the first segment of the bullet train. Perpetual failure has long been the story of the boondoggle and there is no indication that will be changing any time soon. On Friday, Brian Kelly, CEO of the project, issued a revised draft business plan for the bullet train revealing the latest delays. The Central Valley portion of the project was supposed to be finished in 2017. In 2016, this was then moved back four y...

The approval of the motion, authored by Supervisors Janice Hahn and Hilda Solis, comes on the heels of the Biden Administration’s announcement last month that the Federal Emergency Management Agency would provide 100% reimbursement, rather than the typical 7...

Dave Roberts’ dilemma: how to use Dodgers’ 7 starting pitchers?

Dave Roberts refers to them as his “first-world problems” – choices that have to be made among multiple attractive options, decisions that only a team as deep and talented as the Dodgers have to make. With the signing of 2020 National League Cy Young Award winner Trevor Bauer (a move that cannot become official until the Dodgers clear a spot on their 40-man roster), Roberts has a new one – what to do with seven starting pitchers. “As we sit here in the early part of February – it’s amazing. It’s...

Clippers hopeful Patrick Beverley will play Wednesday

Depending how you see a thing, “questionable” can be cause for a concern or a reason to rejoice. In the Clippers’ case, getting even a “maybe” on the RSVP from Patrick Beverley is good news, especially as Paul George remains sidelined by a swollen bone in his right foot. While George remained in L.A., Beverley made the trip to Minnesota with the team Tuesday, and coach Tyronn Lue expressed relief that the Clippers’ emotional, vocal leader is healthy enough to warrant a questionable designation a...
