Reverse damage of politicians, special interests: John Cox

For decades California has been run by career politicians and insiders. Together they have created a state that only the wealthy and well-connected can afford to live in. California has the highest taxes in the country and is one of the country’s least affordable places to live. Homelessness is out of control. California is home to nearly half of our country’s unhoused people. The politicians have spent billions, but the problem is getting worse every day. We are facing our worst ever wildfire s...

Get back to the basics: Kevin Kiley

Our state government is broken. I’ve seen this first-hand as a member of the California Legislature, and prior to that as a public school teacher and prosecutor. Over the last 16 months, Californians have come to the same conclusion. We’ve known for some time that our state is on the decline. One survey showed nearly two-thirds of residents believe the American Dream is dead here. But the COVID era has connected the dots in an unmistakable way: our quality of life is declining because government...

Bring common sense back to California: Doug Ose

Sacramento is broken — fractured by years of mismanagement by career politicians who are detached from the real-life challenges facing everyday Californians. I was born and raised in California. I’ve raised my family and built my business here. For most of our lives, California was the land of opportunity. That hope has been eclipsed by a rising tide of crises and inept politicians. The Golden State has more homelessness and poverty than any other state in the country. Housing costs and health c...

She continues to be evaluated daily to determine whether she’ll compete in the finals for floor exercise and balance beam. Biles said she was putting her mental health first when she withdrew from the gymnastics team event after one rotation. The U.S. women won silver there.

LA officials start working out details on vaccine requirement for city workers

Los Angeles city officials on Wednesday, July 28, began hashing out details of a proposal to require all municipal employees to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination or undergo weekly coronavirus testing, while a City Council member introduced a motion calling for a stricter rule that would mandate vaccinations. “The fourth wave is here, and the choice for Angelenos couldn’t be clearer — get vaccinated or get COVID-19,” Mayor Eric Garcetti said Tuesday night. “This urgent need means that if you’re ...

By KATE BRUMBACK CANTON, Ga. (AP) — A man accused of killing eight people, most of them of Asian descent, at Atlanta-area massage businesses pleaded guilty Tuesday to four of the murders and was handed four sentences of life without parole.

By MARY CLARE JALONICK WASHINGTON (AP) — “This is how I’m going to die, defending this entrance.” Capitol Police Officer Aquilino Gonell told House investigators Tuesday he could feel himself losing oxygen as he was crushed by rioters – supporters of then-President Donald Trump – as he was defending the Capitol during the Jan. 6 insurrection.

Texas runoff to decide who fills GOP US Rep. Wright’s seat

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — A runoff for a U.S. House seat in Texas on Tuesday came down to two Republicans in a race to succeed Rep. Ron Wright, who in February became the first member of Congress to die after being diagnosed with COVID-19. Susan Wright, a GOP party activist and widow of the late congressman, carried the endorsement of former President Donald Trump into the special election runoff with Jake Ellzey, a Republican state legislator who is backed by former Gov.

With Simone Biles out, ROC wins women’s team gymnastics

By WILL GRAVES TOKYO (AP) — Simone Biles came to Tokyo as the star of the U.S. Olympic movement and perhaps the Games themselves. It all came to a stunning halt in the women’s gymnastics final on Tuesday night with an uncertain vault. In a flash, the rest of the American star’s Games came into question. And the United States’ long run at the top of the sport came to an end. The team representing the Russia Olympic Committee surged past the shorthanded U.S. to the top of the podium, posting a sco...

Olympic champ Biles out of team finals

By WILL GRAVES TOKYO (AP) — Reigning Olympic gymnastics champion Simone Biles is out of the team finals after apparently sustaining an injury during the vault. The 24-year-old U.S. star, considered to be the greatest gymnast of all time, huddled with a trainer after landing her vault. She then exited the competition floor with the team doctor.

From one phone call to 40 million Instagram views, two So Cal students start national push for ethnic studies

It started about 13 months ago, with a FaceTime chat between a couple of friends. Now, it’s a message resonating across the country. Diversify Our Narrative – a push to expand multicultural studies in public schools – was born because two Stanford students, Jasmine Nguyen and Katelin Zhou, were inspired by the Black Lives Matter protests that followed the murder of George Floyd. Their non-profit has one goal; to achieve racial justice through education. Nguyen and Zhou’s first step was to circul...

The tax implications of SB 9 and 10

The Legislature has gone into summer recess leaving a lot of unfinished business. When they return, among the most controversial proposals left unresolved are bills addressing the state housing crisis. While no one disputes the need for more housing,,, the broader policy issue is whether state micromanaging of local land use decisions is in the public interest. There are several bills circulating in the capitol, but the two that have drawn the most public wrath are Senate Bills 9 and 10. Taxpaye...

A right to repair and a wish for simplicity

When I heard about a “Right to Repair” executive order from the president, I was all for it — this theoretical thing. It’s easy for any of us to understand from where comes the impetus for such a proposal in the current  age of stuff. After eons of making stuff and just plain having stuff, we are used to ownership equaling the right to tinker. If you are handy, that is. If I had a hammer, I would be likely to make matters worse. “Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance” was not written about m...
