Eviction bans taking a bite out of landlords’ bottom line

Real estate agent Adam Bray-Ali hopes to retire someday off the income from his small portfolio of triplexes and four-plexes. But lately, his side job as a landlord isn’t going so well. Tenants in three of his 20 units stopped paying rent after the coronavirus pandemic hit in March. One tenant moved out owing $6,000. Now Bray-Ali is losing money on two of his five buildings, and he’s thinking about selling one of them. Thanks to forbearance, he’s been able to skip some mortgage payments and abou...

California needs a new energy plan

The blackouts that rolled through California in August were the direct result of what happens when we plan based on wishful thinking and not science. Our planning and policies did not hold up to a real-world challenge and millions of Californians lost power during the hottest days of summer. As our state’s energy regulators and leaders plan for how to prevent blackouts in the future, our top priority should be to plan for a warming planet and more frequent and intense extreme weather events such...

Angels top prospect Jo Adell reflects on difficult learning curve as a rookie

ANAHEIM — Jo Adell’s rookie season with the Angels — or as much of a season as has been possible in this pandemic-altered world — has not left him feeling too distraught. “This game is tough and you’re gonna have lumps and you know I knew I was gonna have some things I had to learn and I was gonna have a couple learning curves,” Adell said. “I definitely had my share. But I’m not down about it. I’m not sad. I’m learning. I’m taking notes every day about different things that are new to me and tr...

New approach helps Jared Walsh’s future look permanent with Angels

Throughout the hot streak that has begun to change the perception about who Jared Walsh is and who can be, he has chosen not to delve too deeply into how it happened. In describing the swing he first brought to the major leagues, Walsh has a fairly simple description. “Last year, I had a lot going on,” the Angels first baseman said. “You know, it works sometimes, but it wasn’t consistent enough.” Less is definitely more when it comes to hitting in the majors. Since eliminating much of the moveme...

Honk wouldn’t bicycle on a freeway, but sometimes you legally can

Q. A small group of us annually ride our bikes from Rancho Mission Viejo to Oceanside, going through Camp Pendleton. We have lunch and then take the Amtrak train back – a fun day. Some of the guys do not like riding through the Marine base, because there are no designated bike lanes, etc., so they want to ride along the I-5 Freeway. Please comment on the rules associated with riding bikes along this stretch of the I-5, an option that looks scary to me. My bike-riding friends and I are looking fo...
