Whicker: Lakers, unlike the Clippers, don’t ask you to wait until next year

Five days later, his parting words still scrape on the eardrum. Did Paul George really say that the Clippers’ 2019-20 season wasn’t a matter of “championship or bust?” Technically, he is correct. There is no record of either George or Kawhi Leonard promising that the Clippers would be this year’s champions. Practically, it is one of the all-time cop-outs, since it came a few minutes after Leonard and George combined to miss 28 of 38 shots at the end of the Clippers’ listless Game 7 farewell. The...

Successful Aging: There are ways to connect with grandchildren during the pandemic

Q. Before the pandemic, I was a physically active grandmother to three young grandchildren. Currently, I am extremely compliant with the CDC recommendations because of my husband’s compromised immune system. Some of my family members and friends are less cautious. Because I am not physically present, I feel passed over for those grandmotherly activities in favor of those who are less cautious. I’ve become the absent grandmother which is having a negative effect on my mental health. I feel I have...

Senior Moments: Waiting for a Bobcat fire evacuation order with a frightened kitty

The car was packed. Lark’s kitty carrier, stashed with treats and her favorite Woody Woodpecker toy, was parked by the front door ready for a getaway should someone with a bullhorn go up and down the block ordering us to leave immediately. The Bobcat fire had us in its sights. Having checked off most of the items on my evacuation list, I stopped by the kitchen to get one of the brownies I’d baked earlier and packed in a to-go container. Who doesn’t need brownies in stressful times? I doubted tha...

What you’ll want to plant right now in your garden

1. A little extra effort on your citrus trees now will make a wonderful difference at harvest time. Prune out the upright-growing new sprouts ASAP if you haven’t already gotten around to it.

These micronutrients will help your oranges especially, and other citrus, to develop extra sweetness – a taste you’ll notice and love at harvest time. 2.

Entertainment industry treading water after 6 months of coronavirus restrictions

Entertainment happens in gathering places, which is what officials are trying to discourage to combat the novel coronavirus. When the COVID-19 pandemic broke out in March, few people could have imagined a world without places to go for entertainment: no amusement parks, no multiplexes for movies, no theaters or festival grounds for concerts, no casinos. But not only did all those venues close, most haven’t reopened. And as we head into fall, no one knows when they will come back. They are part o...

Dijon Kizzee family’s attorney calls deputy shooting ‘an execution’

LOS ANGELES — Dismissing the sheriff’s department release of videos and information surrounding the Westmont shooting of Dijon Kizzee by two deputies as a “media-driven sideshow,” an attorney for Kizzee’s family said Friday that the man’s killing was nothing short of “an execution.” Attorney Carl Douglas said in a statement that Kizzee’s family was “disturbed by the unspoken messages and half-truths expressed” during a sheriff’s department news conference Thursday to update the investigation of ...

Emmy Awards show could go off the rails — and make for fun TV

Thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, Sunday’s socially distanced Emmy Awards telecast won’t look anything like it usually does. And that could be a good thing. Late-night funny guy Jimmy Kimmel will host the event from Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles, but there will be no audience or traditional red-carpet festivities. Instead, nominees will be stationed in their homes (or other locales) with special camera-and-mic rigs. Organizers say they will be able to tap into live feeds from 130 loca...
