Could February showers bring March rattlesnakes? ‘Snakebite season’ begins

After a wet winter, a warmer spring that began Wednesday will send hordes into the great outdoors just as the local snake population awakens from a long hibernation, setting up a dangerous scenario resulting in snakebites and emergency room visits, experts warned. The above-average rainfall ushered in more insects, not to mention the super blooms of wildflowers and a migration of Painted Lady butterflies — all food for rodents. This bounty creates a buffet for mice, gophers and ground squirrels,...

Why most pro athletes — including Mike Trout — are worth every penny of their big money salaries

Angels center fielder Mike Trout has succeeded as a low-key player in a low-key market, and he obviously has decided the stability and the lifestyle were worth agreeing to a 12-year, $426.5 million deal now and staying in Orange County, rather than waiting for 2020 and shooting for a $500 million-plus contract.
