LA County homeless count was something these Valley volunteers could not ignore

Thousands of people across Los Angeles County took to the streets this week, but it was not to march in support of a political cause. Instead they were volunteering in the homeless count, a now annual reminder of a pressing problem in Los Angeles that has become difficult for many to ignore. That inability to look the other way was what prompted eighth-grade math teacher Jose Fernandez to go straight from the LAUSD teacher strike that ended Tuesday to join the homeless count. Homelessness has be...

USC basketball looks to snap another skid – this one to Arizona

LOS ANGELES — Enough time has passed since the USC basketball team last beat Arizona that only one player is left on the roster who was a part of the victory. Bennie Boatwright, the Trojans’ sharp-shooting senior forward, was a freshman in 2016 when the Wildcats were toppled in a quadruple-overtime thriller, scoring 15 points in 41 minutes as one of USC’s five players in double figures in the upset. After one practice earlier this week, Boatwright recalled the lively home crowd that, for at leas...

UCLA men’s basketball looks to offense to recapture Pac-12 success

LOS ANGELES — Murry Bartow wasn’t brought in to solve UCLA’s offense. The first-year-assistant-turned-interim-head-coach was hired as a de facto defensive coordinator, but on Tuesday, Bartow stood in the corner of the practice court in Mo Ostin Center and fielded questions on a turnover-prone offense and his trapping defenses alike. One proved particularly daunting. “When you look at your offense,” a reporter asked, “what does it need to be more efficient?” “Whew,” Bartow sighed. “How long do I ...

5 notes on Elton John’s ‘Farewell’ at Staples Center on Tuesday

Late in Elton John’s terrific show at Staples Center on Tuesday, on what the 71-year-old performer has billed as the Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour, his final run of shows around the world, he paused to thank all the fans who’ve supported him throughout half a century on stage. “Never in my wildest dreams did I think I’d be sitting here 50 years later talking to you,” John said. “I’ve been incredibly lucky. Worked very hard, but I’ve been lucky too.” And Los Angeles has always been there for hi...

Coyotes Weekly: Still Hanging Around

Don’t look now, but the injury-ravaged Arizona Coyotes, written off by many after losing no fewer than five key players to long-term ailments this season, are just two points out of a playoff spot after a 6-2-2 start to January. With a nine-day break coming up, it’s not inconceivable to think that this is a team that’s capable of getting healthy and going on a big second-half run to earn its first playoff berth since the 2011-12 season.

What will make LAUSD teachers’ deal work? New outside funding – and teamwork

Teachers, board members and experts had just begun to scrutinize the landmark deal that effectively ended the Los Angeles Unified School District’s strike on Tuesday. But one thing is clear: The agreement will call for a complex mix of flexibility and cleverness from the district to secure an influx of new funding from the state and elsewhere to fend off the financial disaster that LAUSD Superintendent Austin Beutner has been warning of since the day he took office.

Southern California dodged the Amazon Iceberg

If recent history is a good predictor, this year California politicians could dole out over $900 million in taxpayer money for corporate handouts. And cities like Los Angeles that lost out in the sweepstakes for Amazon’s second headquarters (or “HQ2”) may be motivated to double down on the next big prize. But Californians should be skeptical when politicians try to woo a corporate giant. A deeper look at the Amazon dog-and-pony show explains why. Sure, politicians from sea to shining sea offer c...

LA appellate justice accused of sexual misconduct denies groping fellow jurist

A Los Angeles appellate justice accused of sexual misconduct spanning 20 years accepted responsibility Tuesday for some of his actions, but denied the more serious allegation of squeezing the breasts of another jurist.

Johnson, in a formal answer to the nine-count civil complaint filed this month by the state Commission on Judicial Performance, said he would take responsibility for his mistakes, but not for allegations he dubbed untrue. “None of...

Will helping fix the teachers strike help Eric Garcetti become president?

In some potentially important ways, Eric Garcetti’s presidential hopes got a lift Tuesday morning when the Los Angeles mayor helped end the teachers strike in the nation’s second-largest school district. But Garcetti’s role in the settlement between officials of Los Angeles Unified and the teachers union is hardly a springboard to the White House — and it might even have a downside, political observers said in interviews. The pluses are clear for Garcetti, who is thought to be preparing to launc...

Lakers enthusiastic about Rajon Rondo possibly returning Thursday

LOS ANGELES — Last week as the Lakers prepared to take on Oklahoma City, Moe Wagner and Svi Mykhailiuk found themselves on their heels against a near-unstoppable opponent. Rajon Rondo, still with a wrap around his right middle and ring fingers, was destroying them in a two-on-two scrimmage with Ivica Zubac, running a devastating pick-and-roll. “C’mon, guard him!” Wagner shouted at Mykhailiuk after Rondo had passed for a Zubac dunk. “He’s only got one [expletive] hand!” In the event Rondo can pla...

Snowball the poodle dies after inspiring movement to stop spaying pregnant dogs at shelters

Snowball, the poodle mix that inspired a movement to stop animal shelters from spaying pregnant dogs before they give birth, died at the South Los Angeles pound before she could deliver her pups. As L.A. animal services commissioners listened to impassioned pleas Tuesday for and against a change in city policy, General Manager Brenda Barnette announced that the pregnant poodle-Bichon mix who propelled “Snowball’s Law” had been unwell and didn’t survive, despite CPR efforts to save her.
