Election Day nears for L.A. County’s state Senate District 30 seat

When former state Sen. Holly Mitchell won a seat on the Board of Supervisors last November, it opened the political gates in a district that Mitchell had dominated since 2013. For a diverse L.A. landscape that spans from Inglewood to Century City, it was a chance for a new leader to take the helm, bringing fresh energy fueled by notions of how to respond to issues such as COVID-19, homelessness and affordable housing. Three months later, seven candidates are officially on the ballot vying for Mi...

Kings Snap Losing Streak With 110-107 Win Over Pistons

DETROIT (AP/CBS13) — The Sacramento Kings snapped a nine-game losing streak with a narrow 110-107 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Friday night. Sacramento blew a 17-point first-quarter lead, then rallied from an eight-point deficit in the final quarter. De’Aaron Fox scored 27 points and the Kings held on after Detroit missed two late free throws intentionally — earlier than the Pistons probably needed to employ that desperate strategy. The Kings were up 106-104 when Harrison Barnes missed fr...

Evening Line- Iain MacIntyre

The current Canucks will hit the halfway point of their pandemic-shortened season next Saturday against the Toronto Maple Leafs. Pandemic or not, there is unvarnished anger among many fans. The only way this could be better for Canuck owners is if they could sell tickets to recoup a few of the millions they’re going to lose this season. But the only way this could be worse for the team is if there were fans in the building booing them. It’s unclear what statute of limitations apply ...

LA City Council sends new ‘reimagine safety’ plan back to Garcetti; original plan was vetoed

Two months ago, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti vetoed an $88 million spending plan approved by the Los Angeles City Council aimed at re-directing funding initially proposed for the police department budget into other uses in the community. The mayor said that it fell short and needed to be tweaked. Now, six Los Angeles City Council members say they plan to vote to override that decision next Tuesday. Community activists last December had raised concerns that the spending plan fell short of the ...

Driver busted for using realistic dummy in carpool lane in Glendora

Drivers getting creative when sneaking into carpool lanes is nothing new, and a California Highway Patrol officer thought he’d seen it all until last week, when an official said he pulled a driver over with the “most realistic dummy” sitting shotgun in a Toyota Tacoma. The mannequin looked like an older man with gray hair and wrinkles on his face, wearing eyeglasses and a facemask, sitting in the passenger seat of the driver’s Toyota, CHP Officer Rodrigo Jimenez said in an interview Friday, Feb....

Removal of bird feeders and birdbaths recommended to stop spread of salmonellosis

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife is asking the public’s help to stop the spread of salmonellosis among songbirds by removing seed feeders until after spring migration. Pine siskins, which are winter visitors to Southern California, are most affected by the disease followed by a smaller number of lesser and American goldfinches. The disease was first reported in California’s Central Coast, the San Francisco Bay Area and the Sierra Nevada communities. “We have been receiving reports ...

Biden says airstrikes in Syria warn Iran to ‘be careful’

By Lolita C.

Be careful,” Biden said when a reporter asked what message he had intended to send with the airstrikes, which the Pentagon said destroyed several building...

Ducks winger Max Comtois heeded offseason call to raise his game

When the 2019-20 season was done, the Ducks’ coaches and executives met with the players individually and made it clear to their youngest ones that simply being on the roster, in the lineup and on the ice for a regular shift wouldn’t cut it in 2020-21. They demanded improvement. They demanded production. They demanded results. Max Comtois, a 22-year-old left wing, apparently got the message. Loud and clear. After 20 games, he’s taken significant strides in his budding career, leading the Ducks w...
