Alexander: Xander Schauffele hopes playing at home helps … for a change

Even though Tiger Woods grew up in Orange County and, as far as we know, never made his home in San Diego for an extended period, it always felt like Torrey Pines was his home course. La Jolla’s PGA Tour stop has customarily been Woods’ first tournament of the new year, and if nothing else the 2008 U.S. Open and a hobbled Tiger’s 91-hole showdown with Rocco Mediate on that track probably cemented the link between player and course. But Tiger is sitting it out as the 2021 Farmers Insurance Open b...

California’s fish population rebounds thanks to strict fishing rules

Among the West Coast’s shrinking fish populations 30 years ago, the largely bottom-dwelling groundfish species were particularly hard hit by overfishing and were declared a federal economic disaster. That spurred one of the world’s most aggressive fishery management programs, with an approach that includes science- and data-driven catch limits and no-fishing zones. Of 17 global regions with ocean fishery management programs examined in a new study by the University of Washington, the west coasts...

State officials launch My Turn coronavirus vaccine eligibility tool

State officials on Tuesday, Jan. 26, launched a trial run of the new vaccine eligibility tool My Turn, which all Californians will eventually be able to use to check if they’re eligible for a coronavirus shot and be notified when it’s their turn. Only healthcare workers and people age 65 and older in Los Angeles and San Diego counties can immediately book appointments during this pilot, but the program is expected to be expanded to all state residents “in coming weeks,” said Government Operation...

California reveals data used to lift stay-at-home order

SACRAMENTO — California’s health department on Monday released to the public previously secret projections for future hospital intensive care unit capacity throughout the state, the key metric for lifting the coronavirus stay-at-home order. However, state officials did not explain how regional per capita virus cases and transmission rates that also were released might influence how much ICU space will be available in four weeks. Last week, state health officials told The Associated Press they we...

Video: Pets have returned to the White House

[vemba-video id=”politics/2021/01/26/joe-biden-first-dogs-white-house-moos-pkg-vpx.cnn”] By Darlene Superville | Associated Press WASHINGTON — The patter of paws is being heard in the White House again following the arrival of President Joe Biden’s dogs Champ and Major. The two German shepherds are the first pets to live at the executive mansion since the Obama administration. Major burst onto the national scene late last year after Biden, then president-elect, broke his right foot while playing...

DHS agreements may tie Biden’s hands on immigration

By Elliot Spagat | Associated Press SAN DIEGO — During the Trump administration’s final weeks, the Department of Homeland Security quietly signed agreements with at least four states that threaten to temporarily derail President Joe Biden’s efforts to undo his predecessor’s immigration policies. The agreements say Arizona, Indiana, Louisiana and Texas are entitled to a 180-day consultation period before executive branch policy changes take effect. The Biden administration rejects that argument o...

New storm to deliver more snow, rain and wind to Southern California

A storm forming to the north was expected to arrive in Southern California between late Sunday and early Monday, Jan. 25, dropping temperatures far below average, dumping rain, snow and hail, and likely snarling traffic in the region, meteorologists said. Clouds parted Sunday after leaving more than a foot of fresh powder at Mountain High Resort in Wrightwood over the weekend and puddles across Southern California. Those will be replaced by another wet weather system expected to pass over the ar...

‘On the cusp of great things’: Dozens of other COVID vaccines working their way to public

Move over, Pfizer and Moderna. You won’t be the only games in town too much longer. COVID-19 has existed for barely more than a year, but 64 vaccines are in clinical development and another 173 in preclinical development worldwide nonetheless, according to the World Health Organization. Dozens of hopefuls are in clinical trials in the U.S., including several by California researchers. But the two inching closest to the finish line here — by Oxford-AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson — could win em...

After 3 eggs lost, Big Bear bald eagles could try again

Hail fell on an empty bald eagle nest as a storm moved in near Big Bear Lake on Friday afternoon, Jan. 22. What started off as a bright spot this winter turned into tragedy as one by one, three eagle eggs were lost, all captured on live video of the nest high above the Big Bear valley. But parents Jackie and Shadow have not given up, and officials with the nonprofit that runs a webcam on the nest say there is much to learn from them. The first egg was laid Jan. 6, but was eaten by ravens the nex...

Big Labor’s latest attack on worker freedom

The Service Employees International Union is asking the California Supreme Court to overturn the voter-approved Proposition 22. Their effort should be denied. The legal challenge is the latest in a years-long battle over the gig economy and in particular app-based transportation companies in California. Such services have allowed for often much lower-cost transportation than taxi cabs for consumers and lower barriers to entry for people wishing to earn extra income driving people around or deliv...

California isn’t a model for the rest of the nation

The media have published many news stories about the new Biden administration’s eagerness to use California as a model for national policymaking. “California is emerging as the de facto policy think tank” of the new administration, as the Los Angeles Times put it. “California is America, only sooner,” said one USC professor quoted by The Guardian. Everyone can see the obvious connections. Sen. Kamala Harris is now vice president. Biden has tapped Attorney General Xavier Becerra, who sued the Tru...

Warm weather across Southern California to give way to cold temps, light rain, with potential for snow

A few days of winter weather are in store for Southern Californians, with a cold front bringing light rains and chilly temperatures, forecasters said. Most areas of Los Angeles and Orange counties and the Inland Empire will see from one-tenth of an inch to less than half an inch of rain starting Friday night, according to the National Weather Service. This week’s weather system will not be nearly as strong or as cold as the recent rain and wind storms the area saw in the last few weeks, which le...

Despite reactions, California says Moderna’s COVID vaccine is safe to use

By DON THOMPSON | Associated Press SACRAMENTO — California said it’s safe to immediately begin using a batch of coronavirus vaccine doses after health officials urged a halt to injections and held a review because several people had reactions. Wednesday’s decision frees up more than 300,000 doses to counties, cities and hospitals struggling to obtain supplies. With the largest U.S. population at 40 million people, California has the second-highest COVID-19 death toll in the country behind New Yo...

Ducks top prospect Trevor Zegras takes his first big steps in his pro career

ANAHEIM — Trevor Zegras took the first significant strides in his professional hockey career Tuesday, when he recorded two assists and four shots on goal in the San Diego Gulls’ 5-1 victory over the San Jose Barracuda in an AHL exhibition game at Great Park Ice. There will be many more to come for the Ducks’ top prospect, including a second exhibition game Thursday against the Barracuda. How quickly he makes the leap from the top minor league to the Ducks and the NHL remained to be determined We...

Philip Rivers retiring after 17 seasons – the first 16 with the Chargers

INDIANAPOLIS — When Philip Rivers first started tossing footballs as a high-school ball boy, he heaved them any way he could. The throwing motion stuck – and success soon followed. Rivers used that strange, shot put-like style to land a college scholarship, become a first-round draft pick and eventually string together one of the greatest 17-year careers in NFL history. On Wednesday, the 39-year-old Indianapolis Colts quarterback announced his retirement. “Every year, Jan. 20 is a special and em...

‘This vaccine shot might save my life,’ columnist Archbold says

I’ve waited in lots of lines in my lifetime, many times in frustration. But not on Tuesday, Jan. 19 — when I waited in a line for something that might save my life one day. That something was the coronavirus vaccine. My wife and I were among the first Long Beach residents 65 and over to get the shot at the city’s newest mass vaccination site, the Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center. We got our vaccinations a few days after the first Long Beach seniors got their shots at the city’s healt...

5 vaccination mega-centers open in L.A. County today – but are there enough doses to stock them?

Fueled by an increasingly uncertain supply of much-coveted coronavirus vaccines, Los Angeles County aimed to roll out five new large-scale vaccination centers, all at high-profile settings around the region, on Tuesday, Jan. 19. The array of new vaccination centers will be in addition to the giant parking-lot clinic at Dodger Stadium — perhaps the largest vaccination site in the nation — and 75 smaller sites the county is already operating. Though all the sites are quite recognizable to Southlan...

Southern California health providers scramble to isolate Moderna vaccine tied to bad reactions

Hundreds of health providers all over the state, including some in Southern California, have received doses from a specific lot of Moderna vaccine tied to about six serious reactions in San Diego last week. On the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday, hospitals were scanning their records to determine if they had received doses from the batch tied to those reactions, and, if so, how many doses were already in people’s arms and how many had to be pulled from inventory until more is understood about wha...

Los Angeles is still the nation’s traffic jam leader and Riverside ranked fifth

Los Angeles remained the nation’s traffic jam hotspot even as the pandemic slashed commuting. L.A. roads were heavily congested 27% of the time in 2020 — still No. 1 among the 57 U.S. markets tracked in an annual traffic study done by navigation gear maker TomTom. This undesirable title comes even after the number of L.A. jams as counted by TomTom fell by 36% from 2019 — the 12th biggest drop. L.A. was the national leader in 2019, too, with traffic jammed 42% of the time. Stay-at-home business r...

Another day, another delay. Trevor Zegras and Jamie Drysdale, the Ducks’ top draft picks the past two years, were set to make their debuts with the San Diego Gulls of the AHL this weekend, but two exhibitions against the Ontario Reign were called off because of COVID-19 protocol concerns.

What’s shaking (and stirring) in 2021: 6 predictions for drink and cocktail trends

As we enter 2021, one thing that’s clear is that people will still like to drink, but exactly what they’ll drink is something mixologists are breaking out crystal balls — or perhaps crystal highball glasses — to try to figure out.

They can’t wait to see the mezcal drinks flowing, a continued interest in canned drinks and possibly the ability to continue offering to-go cocktails, but they’re still aware of how the novel coro...

California Democrats take anti-democratic posture

SACRAMENTO – In his first inaugural address in January 1911, California’s progressive Gov. Hiram Johnson detailed a far-reaching “people’s reform program” that would help wrest control of the state’s government from what his contemporaries called “The Octopus” – a reference to muckraker Frank Norris’ 1901 novel about the outsized power of Southern Pacific Railroad. As Norris explained, the Cyclopean sea monster was a “symbol of a vast power, huge, terrible, flinging the echo of its thunder over ...
