Harvard-Westlake’s Ryan Neapole named Daily News boys water polo player of the year

Harvard-Westlake’s Ryan Neapole didn’t break the program’s goal-scoring record, and he’s not known for filling up the box score. He prides himself on much more important things: stopping the opposition. Neapole’s defensive prowess was at its peak during the Wolverines’ CIF Southern Section Division 1 title run this season. In fact, he didn’t score a single goal en route to the program’s first CIF title since 2014. “Clearly the best defensive player in high school this year,” Harvard-Westlake coa...

E-scooters, dockless bicycles gaining foothold in Southern California as LA County drops orders to remove them

Like Uber and Lyft before them, the latest Silicon Valley startups also showed up uninvited, dropping electric scooters, battery-powered bicycles and other dockless, micro-mobile rentals onto streets and sidewalks of Southern California. The guerrilla marketing strategy aimed at busting the monopoly of the single-passenger car created multiple battlefronts in today’s “Scooter Wars,” sending some cities to the courts claiming they are a nuisance and an eyesore, and others writing regulations that...

Long Beach says sea-level rise will bring dire flooding to some neighborhoods

Rising sea levels are not only going to increasingly flood parts of Long Beach, but could leave the most vulnerable neighborhoods uninhabitable within a generation or two, according to a city presentation Monday night that drew more 300 residents concerned about the city’s — and their own — future. “Residents can continue living on Naples and the Peninsula for several decades as long as you’re willing to experience occasional flooding,” said Jerry Schubel, a marine scientist and CEO of the Aquar...

SCOTUS rules against forced arbitration in port trucker case

The U.S. Supreme Court has unanimously ruled in favor of a Southern California truck driver who claimed he was wrongly forced into an arbitration agreement with a major carrier. In an 8-0 decision, the Supreme Court ruled that independent driver Dominic Oliveira could not be compelled by New Prime Trucking to settle a dispute over back wages through forced arbitration. Oliveira filed a lawsuit in 2013 to have a back wage dispute decided in open court. The decision could have lasting repercussion...

This earthquake guide will help prepare your business for the next big one

Southern California is a known center of earthquake activity, yet many businesses in the region are ill prepared for another major shaker. Budgets, deadlines, vendor contracts, taxes … these are the things most business owners are occupied with. But with the 25th anniversary of the Jan. 17, 1994 Northridge Earthquake upon us, companies would be well advised to develop a plan to better insulate their operations from the destructive power of large quakes. And that next big one? It could be right a...

Does Los Angeles County need 299 more hotels?

Los Angeles County’s lodging industry has plans to add 299 more hotels after 34 opened the past two years. The annual hotel construction report from Atlas Hospitality shows 11 hotels opened in 2018 in Los Angeles County vs. 23 in 2017 — down 52 percent. Last year’s openings had 1,526 rooms vs. 4,309 in ’17 — a drop of 65 percent. That decline seems to be a fast-growth industry taking a breather than any actual slowdown.

Kings to face three playoff hopefuls starting Tuesday in Minnesota

The “spoiler” role probably isn’t one the Kings are ready to embrace in the middle of January. In reality, that’s exactly where the last-place team in the Western Conference finds itself on the precipice of a three-game trip to Minnesota, Dallas and Colorado. The Wild host the Kings on Tuesday at 5 p.m. PT at the Xcel Energy Center. The Wild began the week tied with the Ducks and Vancouver Canucks for the final wild-card berth in the conference.

Styx kicks off City National Grove of Anaheim’s 20th anniversary celebration

On Sept. 4, 1999, rock band Styx became the first group to grace the stage at City National Grove of Anaheim, then known as The Sun Theatre.

8 questions parents have about today’s LAUSD teachers strike

How long will the strike last? That’s the question parents, among others, are asking as a Los Angeles Unified teachers strike gets underway Monday. At this point, it’s anybody’s guess. As classes were slated to begin Monday morning, LAUSD teachers were out picketing rather than in the classroom. In response, district officials have been planning how to keep instruction going. But there are certainly challenges: L.A. Unified is massive, comprising more than 60,000 employees and 1,000 schools acro...

Maneckji Bhumgara: The Indian bowler who took American cricket by storm in the 1900s

Southern California discovered cricket in the late 19th century, two centuries after the sport reached American shores, but the region lost little time in taking to the game with enthusiasm. The cricketing season began every summer in May. Several counties—including Los Angeles, Santa Monica, San Diego, and San Francisco (in mid-California)—had their own leagues. Practice matches between league teams would kick off the season and near its end, a combined Los Angeles team would take on Santa Mo...
