‘My angel;’ a father remembers his boy, slain in Orange shooting spree

The last thing Rafael Farias remembers hearing from his son, Matthew, were the words the little boy told him every day: “I love you, Daddy.” Hours later, on Wednesday, March 31, a gunman locked down an office complex in Orange and shot and killed four people, including Matthew. “He was my angel,” said Rafael Farias, of Santa Ana. “He was my engine to keep me moving.

Lakers turn back to Marc Gasol with Andre Drummond injured

As he had been for 38 of his 39 previous games this season, Marc Gasol was introduced as part of the starting lineup again for the Lakers on Friday night in Sacramento. His return there, however, was a little unexpected this soon – at least before two nights ago. Gasol, 36, got the starting nod again after recently signed Andre Drummond stayed back in L.A. after losing the nail off his right big toe. The Lakers didn’t want a plane ride to skew his recovery timeline, and they’re still hoping he m...

UCLA gymnastics advances to regional final with 2nd-place showing

For most of this season, UCLA gymnast Norah Flatley considered herself the “designated hype woman,” and she puts it. Sidelined with injury, she took it upon herself to take the place of the thousands of fans that couldn’t fill arenas due to COVID-19 protocols. On Friday, Flatley was still a hype woman, but in a different way. She competed on the balance beam for the first time all season and tied for first place in Session 2 of the NCAA Regionals in Morgantown, West Virginia. “I’ve trained my wh...

Upland author revises popular San Gabriel Mountains hiking guide

When David Harris hoofed the trails of almost every known hike within the vast San Gabriel Mountains, he was literally walking in the footsteps of a legend. The painstaking effort lasting from about 2017-2020 paid off when Harris’ update of the popular John W. Robinson book, “Trails of the Angeles: 100 Hikes in the San Gabriel Mountains,” was released in March by Wilderness Press as the 10th edition of what some call the hiking bible for Los Angeles-area mountains.

Alexander: Has Gonzaga been insulated from the pressure?

Most coaches abhor what they consider distractions, those vague, murky factors that get in the way of focus and concentration. But this year, in these circumstances? Gonzaga’s Mark Few almost considers some of them a blessing. “Much to my chagrin, and I hate to admit this, but the fact that (his players) are always messing around on their phones and playing video games, I think it’s insulated them from a lot of stuff that’s going out there, being talked about,” he said. “It might be the one inst...

Christians energized by in-person Southern California gatherings for Easter

Cynthia Wagner gets emotional talking about her church’s plans for Easter Sunday this year. “I’m going to cry,” said the operations manager for West Valley Christian Church in West Hills.
