Homicide victim Missy Jones honored at Pomona Cemetery after cold case arrest

Melisa Jones grew to dread the walk from her home in Pomona to Garey High School during her senior year, after her sister was found slain in Fontana on July 5, 1980. The route forced her to pass by the Pomona Cemetery, the final resting place of Michelle “Missy” Jones. She couldn’t help but think about the life her sister might have lived, and sometimes lost herself wondering who killed her and why. Her uncertainty deepened as the homicide went unsolved for decades. “I’m angry that he got to wal...

Galaxy’s Julian Araujo, 19, keeps growing and inspiring

Imagine being a teenager and a professional soccer player and you’re walking into a locker room that’s dominated by the presence of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

How LeBron James has helped Anthony Davis shoulder the Lakers’ pressure to win

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — In the middle of the Lakers’ biggest win so far this postseason, Anthony Davis was struggling. It was hard to tell from the 6-foot-10 forward’s body language that his team was blowing out the Houston Rockets in Game 5. He hung his head. He slumped his shoulders. As he shuffled to the bench during a timeout in the third quarter, he brushed past several open palms of his teammates, who looked at him with concern. Davis was in the midst of what would be a 4-for-9 night from...

Bad air and the return of bicycling

Hopefully the trend holds and we’re in the green soon. (Source: IQAir.com) It’s been at least a week since smoky air showed up as an unwanted guest in Portland. Streets are dead and most people are in a more severe lockdown mode than when Covid-19 first hit. That’s certainly true for people who love and need to ride bicycles, many of whom continued to ride alone or indoors throughout the pandemic. But now even that’s not happening because the air is just too hazardous — indoors or out. As ...
