Edison makes changes at San Onofre, ready to resume loading nuclear waste

The blue Pacific shimmered and rippled through waves of heat, much like what rises from a car’s roof on a hot summer day. But here, the heat comes not from the sun, but from 29 vents allowing nuclear waste to cool at the shuttered San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station. Nearby, four giant canisters stood outside the fuel pool buildings, awaiting the green light from regulators that will allow Southern California Edison to resume transferring the highly radioactive waste from wet to dry storage in...

March Madness 2019: NCAA Tournament South Region breakdown

With so much going on, who can remember what happened the last time Virginia was the No. 1 seed in the South Region? Oh right, everyone does. Last year Virginia became the first No. 1 seed to lose in the first round – and it wasn’t close, with No. 16 UMBC winning by 20. After a stellar regular season – the only losses were to No. 1 overall seed Duke — now the Cavs are right back in the same spot. Will the added motivation lead to their first Final Four in 35 years, or will the added pressure lea...

Kurtis MacDermid brings fists, energy to Kings

EL SEGUNDO – There aren’t as many fights in the NHL as there once were, but that doesn’t mean big, tough guys like Kurtis MacDermid are obsolete. Not at all. The 6-foot-5, 233-pound Kings defenseman dropped the gloves with defenseman Josh Brown of Florida in the second period of the Kings’ 4-3 loss on Saturday afternoon at Staples Center. MacDermid seemed to be almost enjoying himself as he put Brown on the ice at the end of the scrap. MacDermid wouldn’t quite go that far, but … “I wouldn’t say ...

Under the law, what is the definition of going slow?

Q. Honk: I have a question regarding the “move over” law that requires a driver to move to an adjacent lane if possible, or if not, to slow down when encountering a stopped emergency vehicle with flashing lights on a shoulder. If you’re on a freeway/highway going at a relatively high rate of speed, but there is no opportunity to move over, how slow is slow enough? Someone I know was in that situation and slowed down, but she received a ticket because she didn’t slow down enough. What’s enough? A...
