St. John Bosco basketball going back to regional finals after victory over Harvard-Westlake

BELLFLOWER — St. John Bosco ran into a buzz saw at the start of its CIF Southern California Regional boys basketball semifinal Thursday night. Harvard-Westlake made eight of its first 10 shots, five of them behind the 3-point arc, and the Braves found themselves 15 points down before they’d barely broken a sweat. It was all Bosco the rest of the way, as an exceptional defensive effort and Lamaj Lewis’ ability to draw fouls while driving to the basket sent the home team to a comfortable 65-56 Div...

The Senate approved the bill unanimously; only 14 House Republicans — many representing state...

Another victory at the Supreme Court for religious groups

By JESSICA GRESKO WASHINGTON (AP) — In another victory for religious groups at the Supreme Court, the justices on Thursday unanimously sided with a Catholic foster care agency that says its religious views prevent it from working with same-sex couples.

US rolls back Trump-era asylum rules for violence victims

By Amy Taxin | Associated Press The U.S. government on Wednesday ended two Trump administration policies that made it harder for immigrants fleeing violence to qualify for asylum, especially Central Americans.

The move could make it easier for them to win their cases for ...

Dysfunction, infighting grip Proud Boys in wake of Capitol riot

By Marshall Cohen | CNN A private Proud Boys audio chat that was made public Tuesday shows how the right-wing group fell into dysfunction and finger-pointing as its members got arrested after the US Capitol riot.

California drought sharpens perpetual water conflict

California never has enough water to meet all demands and even when supplies are relatively robust there’s a triangular competition over their allocation. Farmers, municipal users and environmental advocates vie for shares of water that has been captured by California’s extensive network of dams and reservoirs. Their battles are waged in the state Capitol, in Washington, in regulatory agencies and in the courts and over time, the trend has been a subtle shift of supplies from long-dominant agric...

Evidence suggests COVID-19 was in US in late 2019

By Mike Stobbe | Associated Press NEW YORK — A new analysis of blood samples from 24,000 Americans taken early last year is the latest and largest study to suggest that the new coronavirus popped up in the U.S. in December 2019 — weeks before cases were first recognized by health officials. The analysis is not definitive, and some experts remain skeptical, but federal health officials are increasingly accepting a timeline in which small numbers of COVID-19 infections may have occurred in the U....

Is radio still enjoyable? Here’s what readers had to say

Last week, I asked two questions: Do you enjoy radio, and more importantly, why? I didn’t really give much thought to it, but a related question is: Do you still enjoy radio? As it turns out, that comes out in your emails over the past few days. You did and do enjoy it; otherwise, you probably wouldn’t be reading this column. But your responses are important, I believe, to move the industry forward such that it will still be relevant in the years ahead. Here’s what you had to say: “You mentioned...

California shifts from baby boom to baby bust

As California’s population exploded in the 1980s, largely due to a surge of immigration and a new baby boom, a fierce debate erupted among those on the political left. Some environmental leaders warned that rapid growth would put an unbearable strain on natural resources and called for curbs on immigration. But Latino leaders said such restrictions would be racist. The debate was encapsulated in an open feud between two of then-Gov. Jerry Brown’s top appointees, Resources Secretary Huey Johnson,...
