Why I wanted to get the Johnson & Johnson coronavirus vaccine

I’ve waited patiently for my COVID-19 vaccine. I felt like I was at the deli counter of life hoping my number comes up next. And while I know the luck of the draw determines which shot you get, I wanted the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. No offense to Moderna or Pfizer, but I have some family history with the giant pharmaceutical company and wanted to see it come full circle. My paternal grandparents, Ramon and Ernestina Berrios, owned a dairy farm in Gurabo, Puerto Rico, a town about 23 miles from ...

California to add nearly 1,400 firefighters amid fears of another devastating wildfire season

By ADAM BEAM SACRAMENTO — California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Tuesday said the state will hire nearly 1,400 additional firefighters as an unusually dry winter stokes fears of another devastating wildfire season. California depends on snowfall in the mountains for much of its water. But the latest snow survey recorded a statewide “snow water equivalent” of just 15 inches, or about 54% of average for April 1, when the state’s snowpack is the deepest. The state had a similarly dry winter last year. Wha...

Got the feel for it.

An occasional point of disagreement between my ex and I was whether or not it was possible to discern that one particular tire was low or not. I said that of course it was, based on certain handling signals, as well as feedback from bumps that spanned the width of the car's track. He insisted it was not, because he was sure he'd read about some test where NASCAR drivers couldn't.Driving home from Cincy today, the right-hand tires felt a little soft over bumps and handling was a little greasy in ...

Chris Rodriguez’s long road finally leads to Angels’ Opening Day

Angels pitcher Chris Rodriguez hasn’t felt physical discomfort throughout spring training and wasn’t feeling it mentally heading into Tuesday’s exhibition finale at Dodger Stadium. Rodriguez learned a few days prior that his big league dreams were coming true after Angels manager Joe Maddon and interim pitching coach Matt Wise told the right-hander he made the Opening Day roster. “Once (Maddon) said I made the team, I completely blacked out,” Rodriguez said Tuesday. “He kept on talking after.

LOS ANGELES ― Left-hander Scott Alexander snagged the Dodgers’ final bullpen spot, the only outstanding question as the Dodgers prepare their Opening Day roster. The regular season begins Thursday in Denver against the Colorado Rockies.

LAPD, Echo Park Lake activists trade accusations over who started fracas over homeless encampment clearing

Nearly a week after Los Angeles Police Department officers and protesters scuffled around Echo Park Lake, both sides are pointing fingers over who really kicked things off as city crews worked to clear a homeless encampment there that became a haven for some vulnerable residents and the bane of others. In a virtual meeting with reporters on Tuesday, LAPD Chief Michel Moore said the department initially only planned to “maintain a small posture” around the park of officers keeping people away fro...

Whicker: USC gets bullied off playground by Gonzaga

By the 10-minute mark, USC had already lost its lunch money. Pretty soon there was a Kick-Me sign on the back of every player, and holes in the knees of all the jeans. The NCAA’s anti-bullying initiatives cannot protect you when you play Gonzaga and you are not ready to cross that line. USC became the 30th team this season, and 34th in a row, to stay on the losing side. And, yeah, we all remember when Villanova beat Georgetown and Danny Manning beat Oklahoma in title games of yesteryear. But you...

USC’s NCAA Tournament run ends at hands of undefeated Gonzaga

INDIANAPOLIS — The cracks showed early, followed by a trickle, then a gush, then the whole dam breaking. By the time sixth-seeded USC recovered enough to plug some of the holes, there was no catching Gonzaga. And the Trojans’ magical March run came to an end in the Elite Eight with an 85-66 loss to the top-seeded Zags. “I just can’t say enough about these guys,” USC head coach Andy Enfield said. “I know tonight was not the result we all wanted, but these guys are winners in here.” The Trojans si...
