Poly High teachers reach new heights, again

“Our students know that even at a distance, their teachers still support, guide, and root for them.” – Elidia Vazquez, principal of John H. Francis Polytechnic High School in Sun Valley  It’s the interaction they miss most. The being in the classroom and seeing the body language that tells you whether your students are getting it or not. It’s the look in their eyes when something is overwhelming or boring or confusing. It’s being able to tell when they are having a bad day, or an off day, as te...

I Don’t Have a Six Pack, but a Car Hit Me and I Survived

Hannah Halvorsen during the 2019 Quebec City World Cup sprint. (Photo: Doug Stephen) I’ve struggled with body satisfaction my entire life. I don’t just want to be skinnier, I want to be leaner, more defined, more like an… “athlete”. But last fall, I was hit by a car and I find myself wondering, is the body I have, not the body the insecure part of me craves, responsible for my return to sport?   Since I was little, the word “athlete” activated images of beautiful toned-muscled people in my...

COVID America, 6 months in: Disarray, dismay, disconnect

For years, Erin Whitehead has been a committed fan of the crisis-fueled medical drama “Grey’s Anatomy.” She has watched its doctors handle all manner of upheaval inside their put-upon hospital — terrifying diseases, destructive weather, bombs, mass shootings, mental illness, uncertainty, grief. Today, she turns to the emotionally draining show as a salve, something to take her mind off of … well, off of everything this jumbled year has delivered to her nation, to her society, to her front door. ...

‘Behind the 8-ball:’ Many Southern California nursing homes hit hard by coronavirus had prior issues

Evangelina Gonzalez survived the coronavirus. But she found herself lonely and confused inside her nursing home. The 98-year-old, who has dementia, had fallen a couple of times at Monterey Palms Health Care Center in the Coachella Valley, her son said. After contracting the virus last spring, she was placed in an isolation wing for six weeks. “I’ll try to call her and she’s just like, ‘Where are you, where are you?

Boulders placed in LA neighborhood’s freeway corridor fuel feud over plight of homeless

Retired veterans ready to serve again

Most of the guys over at Post 138 of the Jewish War Veterans are in their 70s now. They fought in Vietnam when they were 18 and 19 years old, kids right out of high school, and like the soldiers and Marines who preceded and followed them into war, they all lived by the same credo.

Mom column: Trying to clear out heads amid all these smoke-tainted skies

The red sun, orange skies and sepia atmosphere around the Valley this week prompted my boys to discuss the science of it all (in between watching the NBA playoffs, of course.) My husband, the engineer, had a scientifically-based, if jargon-laced answer. Mom did not. “Apocalypse Now” did not seem the appropriate response from a grown-up. My high school sophomore came up with the most user-friendly explanation: How ash and smoke from all the fires around the state, and Oregon and Washington, go up...
