Perris Auto Speedway is growing its legacy for short track racing

Short track racing has always been popular and well attended in Southern California. The center was the half-mile Ascot Speedway in Gardena, run by the late J.C. Agajanian. The track opened in 1957 and remained active until 1990. The sport suffered for six years until Perris Auto Speedway opened March 30, 1996, in Riverside County. Since its opening, PAS has operated under Oval Entertainment and the Kazarian family on the SoCal Fairgrounds, a stretch of 18 years. And, if Oval Entertainment has i...

Only as good as your name? You Beto believe it! 

When it comes to evaluating people we don’t know much about, typically the first thing we judge them by is their name. Fair or not, somebody’s name causes us to make certain assumptions about their age, gender, where they come from or even what their religion might be — as there generally aren’t too many Millie’s under the age of 80, women named Bob, or Mormons named Muhammad. The cues in a name can lead us to positive reactions, or make us skeptical and suspicious. This is human nature, and no ...

Five spring training trends you might have missed

Spring training doesn’t count, right? The wins, losses and ties sure don’t, but every now and then something happens on a back field in Florida or Arizona that baseball hasn’t seen before. It might be a trend, a fluke, or a subtle signal of change. These things don’t stand out in box scores, but they’re more important than the box scores. Here are five interesting wrinkles you might have missed from the past month. 1. SLOW PLAYS The Red Sox brought back eight of the 10 pitchers who contributed...

Southern California mountain lions face possible extinction, study finds

Alexander: You may want to consider UC Irvine when making out your bracket

The world according to Jim: • We are all … Anteaters? From the desert to the sea, from the Tehachapis to the Mexican border, there is one men’s NCAA Tournament team for all of Southern California. It’s UC Irvine, and it might hang around for a bit. The Anteaters, who swept through the Big West and take a 30-4 record to the Dance, have size (as always), experience and stubbornness on defense. They’ve received a fairly favorable draw – by Big West standards, anyway – a No. 13 seed and a first game...

As Bay Area moves left, some conservative voters move out

Retired engineer Stewart Tagg spent four decades in the Bay Area — appreciating the blue skies, good schools and strong economy. But in recent years, his home changed too much for his liking: higher taxes, an open immigration policy and no end in sight to the state’s liberal direction.  Tagg, 69, sold his San Jose home and moved his family to Arizona in 2014. He used a simple calculation to justify it: 70 percent politics, 30 percent taxes. “I’m a good old Republican,” Tagg said. “I just saw the...

Heisler: In Duke’s Zion Williamson, the worst NBA draft class in years has the most exciting prospect in years

In the nick of time, at the height, or depth, of the NBA’s dog days, here comes the NCAA Tournament to let us all scout the future. Not that college basketball is an adjunct to the NBA … even if NBA people think it is, as when former Bulls great Scottie Pippen, speaking for the mercenary way, advised Duke phenom Zion Williamson to shut down his college career in February after spraining a knee. “If I was going to sit out,” Williamson said, “I wouldn’t have gone to college.” Happily for all excep...
