    LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — It’s the defense that flusters high school offense.

    But in the right moment, a zone can destroy leads and spark the most unlikely of comebacks.

    The Lakers deployed a zone that bewildered the Denver Nuggets for the final 10 minutes of a shockingly thrilling Game 3 that had looked all but over for the best underdogs the NBA bubble has seen and coaxed them into six straight turnovers. Still it was not enough: The Nuggets held on to win 114-106 on Tuesday in the final moments thanks to baskets by Jamal Murray and Paul Millsap, putting them on the board in the Western Conference Finals and giving the Lakers fair warning that the series, now 2-1, won’t be a cakewalk sweep.

    Two off-target 3-point attempts by the Lakers in the final minutes could have tied it, from Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and then LeBron James. The Lakers finished with 20 fastbreak points and 21 points off of turnovers, outscoring their challengers 31-21 in the final frame. James and Anthony Davis combined for 57 points, including many of the fastbreak baskets that made the game competitive.

    There was still 10:36 left in the fourth quarter when Murray broke into the lane against a shoddy Lakers defense and threw down a one-handed jam. The bearded scoring phenom roared with the defiance that has defined his Denver team’s playoff campaign, while the Lakers peered up at the scoreboard to squint at a 20-point deficit.

    It was real, and Denver’s energy and coordination were insurmountable for the Lakers, who lacked both of those things for long stretches on Tuesday night.

    The Game 3 switch to Denver’s “home court” prompted Coach Frank Vogel to joke about having to “always account for altitude.” But even if it wasn’t the elevation, something had the Lakers running at half-speed against the Nuggets, who seemed inspired after taking a tough Game 2 loss by a Davis buzzer-beater.

    The Lakers’ small lineup that had worked wonders against the Houston Rockets was completely run over by the Monte Morris- and Michael Porter Jr.-led bench.

    A 15-2 run to start the second quarter set the dynamic for the rest of the game, where for once the Lakers were the pursuers.

    Corona businesswoman who faked connections to Kobe Bryant, Taylor Swift, sent back to prison for fraud https://www.dailynews.com/2020/09/22/corona-businesswoman-who-faked-connections-to-kobe-bryant-taylor-swift-sent-back-to-prison-for-fraud/ A Corona woman, who served over four years in prison for lying to obtain $15 million in credit, later admitted she hid her criminal history to defraud an investor and was sentenced Monday, Sept. 21 to another 20 months behind bars.

    Carolyn Marie Jones, 57, concealed her prior convictions and presented herself as a successful entrepreneur, U.S. Attorney’s Office officials said Tuesday in a news release. She used “lies and deceit” to convince her most recent victim to give her $13,000 from a retirement fund, IRS Special Agent Ryan Asato wrote in court documents.

    Jones’s defense attorney, Ian Wallach, declined to comment on the case Tuesday.

    Jones told her most recent victim she had support from LeBron James, Taylor Swift, Chrissy Teigen, Floyd Mayweather, the Kardashians and other household names, federal officials said. She claimed Kobe Bryant’s daughter was planning to represent her clothing line on Jan. 26, after learning the Lakers star and Gianna Bryant died in a helicopter crash, officials said.

    “I am devastated — now we really have work to do,” Jones wrote in a text message the day of the tragedy. “Kobe wanted his daughter to be the face of our brand… I have been in shock all morning…”

    Those were lies, according to court documents. Her latest victim would have never given Jones money if the investor had “known about defendant’s criminal history, particularly the defendant’s prior denim jeans fraud schemes,” Asato wrote in a declaration filed in May.

    Jones owned Diamond Decisions Inc., which sold jeans under the labels Privacywear and PRVCY Premium, before she was sentenced in December, 2015 to 79 months in prison, according to court documents. She falsified her company’s financial records and used another person’s Social Security number in order to open a multi-million dollar line of credit with Union Bank. She also “fabricated relationship with celebrities,” to deceive the bank, Asato said.

    Jones filed for bankruptcy after defaulting on her loans, and then hid her assets from the IRS. She was already on trial for fraud when a federal grand jury indicted her in July 2014 on suspicion of convincing victims in Georgia and Texas to hand over about $124,100 in a phony investment scheme. Charges related to the latter case were dismissed as part of a plea agreement filed in February 2015.

    Jones pleaded guilty to one count of bank fraud and one count of concealing assets in bankruptcy. She was still behind bars when she posted a craigslist ad titled “Seeking Financial Partner!! up to $25K,” and was contacted by a would-be investor in December 2019. Jones was housed with an inmate reentry program in South Central Los Angeles when she toured a warehouse in Vernon with her victim in an effort to make the business venture appear legitimate.

    Jones was released from custody on Feb. 4. The person she was attempting to defraud became suspicious after giving her money, and began providing information to the IRS. That ultimately led to the revocation of her parole and her return to prison.

    Justin Turner’s return to third base for Dodgers delayed by more hamstring discomfort https://www.dailynews.com/2020/09/22/justin-turners-return-to-third-base-for-dodgers-delayed-by-more-hamstring-discomfort/ LOS ANGELES — Justin Turner returned to the Dodgers’ lineup a week ago. His return to third base will have to wait a little longer.

    Turner was a last-minute scratch from the Dodgers’ lineup Tuesday against the Oakland A’s with left hamstring discomfort.

    Turner missed 14 games with a strained left hamstring suffered during the Dodgers’ series in Texas in late August. He returned last week to play five games as the DH, going 7 for 18 (.389). He was scheduled Tuesday to make his first start at third base since Aug. 28 though Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said it would not be for the full nine innings.

    With Turner out, Edwin Rios has started 11 games at third base this month. Going into Tuesday’s game, Rios was 7 for 38 (.184) in September with two home runs and seven RBIs.

    JOC BACK

    Joc Pederson returned to the Dodgers’ lineup and started at DH on Tuesday after being activated from the family emergency leave list. The Dodgers have not given any specifics about Pederson’s situation and he has not been available to the media.

    When asked if Pederson’s family situation had been resolved, Roberts said he couldn’t say “with 100 percent certainty” that Pederson would not have to leave the team again. Players on playoff-bound teams are supposed to begin quarantining this week in anticipation of playing in a “bubble” situation during the postseason.

    Roberts indicated it is possible Pederson would be with the Dodgers through the Wild Card Series but not travel with them to Texas for subsequent rounds if the team advances.

    “Family first. Joc knows that. His family understands that,” Roberts said. “I just know Joc worked real hard to be here with us to finish out this homestand. And I would expect him to be with us through the Wild Card Series. But after that, I just don’t know.”

    Pederson also missed three games earlier this month on paternity leave and has gone just 2 for 24 this month. Roberts said Pederson has been taking at-bats in simulated-game settings over the past few days.

    “It hasn’t been the season that he expected, that we expected out of him,” Roberts said of Pederson who was batting .174 with a .644 OPS when he returned Tuesday.

    SOFT SERVE

    Through the first 54 games of their regionalized schedule this season, the Dodgers faced just one team that went into Tuesday with a winning record this season — the San Diego Padres. The series against the A’s made it at least two.

    Other than their 10 games against the Padres, the Dodgers’ opponents had a winning record when they played just three other times. The Houston Astros were 3-1 to start the two-game series against the Dodgers in July and the Colorado Rockies were 13-12 before they lost to the Dodgers on August 21.

    “I don’t think there should be a lot read into that,” Roberts said. “I think if you look around at the National League … the National League, in particular, there are a lot of teams within a couple games of each other. So that particular number below .500 I think could change in a couple days.

    “We’ve always focused on us and how we play. Regardless of who we’ve played before, I’ll take us against any team going forward in the postseason.”

    ALSO

    Right-hander Walker Buehler threw a bullpen session before Tuesday’s game. He is on track to come off the injured list and start Thursday against the A’s in a final tuneup before the postseason.

    Angels surprised as Andrelton Simmons opts out of playing rest of season https://www.dailynews.com/2020/09/22/angels-surprised-as-andrelton-simmons-opts-out-of-playing-rest-of-season/ According to FanGraphs, the Angels entered Tuesday’s game against the Padres with a 0.4 percent chance of making the playoffs. In all likelihood, their season will end Sunday.

    Andrelton Simmons’ season is already over.

    The 31-year-old shortstop informed the Angels on Monday he was opting out of the season’s final five games. Players and coaches were given the right to opt out of the 2020 season under the terms set by commissioner Rob Manfred in June.

    The news came as a surprise within the organization. No player or coach on any team had opted out of the season since Cardinals coach Willie McGee on Aug. 14. The last player to opt out was Mets pitcher Marcus Stroman on Aug. 10.

    “Driving home last night, Billy (Eppler, the Angels’ general manager) called me, wanted to make sure I was holding onto the wheel properly, and told me the news,” Manager Joe Maddon said during his pregame Zoom session with reporters Tuesday. “That’s all I know. I haven’t spoken with Andrelton. I texted him on the bus ride down. Have not heard back.”

    Simmons will become a free agent at the conclusion of the season. He was limited to 30 games this year because of a sprained left ankle, and batted .297 with seven doubles and no other extra-base hits. He did most of his damage against right-handed pitchers (.309). Maddon said he’d already planned on having Simmons in Tuesday’s lineup against right-hander Zach Davies.

    In a statement provided by his representatives at ISE Baseball, Simmons said: “I have made the decision to opt out of the remainder of this season. Major League Baseball and the Major League Baseball Players Association developed an environment and system that empowered players and provided us the opportunity to decide on whether to play or opt out of the season. At this moment, I feel this is the best decision for me and for my family.

    “We don’t know what the future holds, but we would like to sincerely thank the Angels organization and Angels fans for welcoming and making us feel at home.”

    The Angels placed Simmons on the Restricted List and added infielder Elliot Soto to their active roster. Soto, 31, is a veteran of 867 minor league games since 2010 who had yet to reach the majors.

    “This year has presented unique challenges for so many and the Angels respect Andrelton’s decision,” the team said in a statement.

    The timing of Simmons’ announcement raises questions about his desire to play in Anaheim beyond this season.

    While some players – notably star center fielder Mike Trout – expressed concerns about playing and traveling amid a pandemic, Simmons was not among them. Privately, Maddon said, Simmons had not discussed opting out of the season before announcing his decision. He’s the first and only Angel to opt out.

    Now, Simmons’ teammates must cling to their slim postseason hopes without a player who had provided a steady bat and excellent glove since he was acquired from the Braves in November 2015.

    “I really enjoyed this guy a lot,” Maddon said. “This guy’s a good baseball player, as we all know. I really enjoyed the conversations too. I do wish him well. He’s a wonderful young man. It’s just unfortunate. He’s a big part of what we’re trying to do right now.”

    The Angels acquired Simmons and catcher José Briceño in a trade with Atlanta for Erick Aybar, Sean Newcomb and Chris Ellis. He had already won two Gold Gloves with the Braves and added two more with the Angels in 2017 and 2018.

    Multiple ankle injuries over the last three years robbed Simmons of some of his flash in the field. He was still such a force that he made 554 of his 556 starts as an Angel at shortstop, with the other two coming as a designated hitter. He made nine starts this season batting leadoff, in a lineup that ranked third in the American League in runs scored through Monday.

    On a Zoom call with reporters on Tuesday, Sept. 15, Simmons gave no indication he was in a hurry to leave Anaheim.

    “I enjoy playing here,” he said. “I’ve had a good time. I made good friends. I like the city. But I know at the end of the day, it’s not completely in my hands and I know it’s a little bit of business, so while I’m here, I’ll give everything I’ve got. I think I’ve proven that throughout the years of playing banged up or like going full effort on certain things and certain plays. While I’m here, I’m going to give everything I have.”

    ALSO

    David Fletcher got the start at shortstop Tuesday, which could continue over the final week. “If we’re not able to keep our head above water, you’ll see more of Soto,” Maddon said. “If we are able to keep our head above water, you’ll see more of Fletch.” … The Angels began play Tuesday 3 1/2 games behind Houston for second place in the AL West, and 4 games behind Toronto for the final AL wild card spot. … Right-hander Mike Clevinger reportedly threw a bullpen for the Padres on Monday and was cleared to start Wednesday’s game opposite Angels right-hander Jaime Barría. The former Angels farmhand is 2-1 in three starts since joining the Padres in a deadline-day trade with the Indians. He was scratched from his last start with biceps discomfort.

    Coronavirus state tracker: California has 15,164 deaths, U.S. passes 200K on Sept. 22 https://www.dailynews.com/2020/09/22/coronavirus-state-tracker-california-has-15164-deaths-u-s-passes-200k-on-sept-22/ According to the California Department of Public Health several counties were lowered to less restrictive levels of the state’s monitoring system on Tuesday, Sept. 22.

    Riverside County was the only Southern California county to move; it was lowered from the most restrictive purple tier to red. Once a county’s tier has changed it must remain there for three weeks.

    A county must also meet criteria for the next tier in daily coronavirus positive cases per 100,000 and testing positivity for two consecutive weeks in order to progress down a level.

    Modoc, Alpine and Maripossa counties are the only three of the state’s 58 counties to reach the minimal (yellow) level.

    Fire officials don’t believe it will challenge the 2009 Station fire’s record of 160,557 acres, but if the Bobcat fire isn’t already in second place, it probably will be soon.

    “As of today, the projected final incident size is less than 125,000 acres,” U.S. Forest Service spokesman Larry Smith said.

    “Obviously it will be contingent on what the wind, heat and fuels do, but we’ve upped the containment date to Sept. 30 so clearly we’re planning on making good headway,” he said, referring to the date when fire officials believe they will have fuel breaks fully around the fire so it can no longer expand.

    The most reliable wildfire records in California are from the 1980s on, and prior to the 1930s, records were not very reliable at all, according to Cal Fire. There were certainly some extremely large fires before then — for example, the 1919 Big Fire, which the Angeles National Forest says burned about 126,000 acres.

    But in the past century, these are the five largest fires to have burned in L.A. County. All started during Southern California’s dry and windy months of August through November.

    1. Station fire, 160,557 acres

    The Station fire broke out in August 2009 near La Canada Flintridge and raged uncontrolled for days as it grew to the county’s largest fire in recorded history, and the 20th largest in California. Believed to be an arson fire, it killed two Los Angeles County firefighters whose vehicle went over the side of a road in the Angeles National Forest and destroyed 209 structures.

    2 or 3. Bobcat fire, 109,271 acres as of Tuesday, Sept. 22

    The Bobcat fire started Sept. 6 in San Gabriel Canyon, deep in the Angeles National Forest north of Azusa, and has been burning mostly out of control ever since. So far it has burned 29 structures and continues to threaten mountain and foothill neighborhoods.

    3 or 2. Clampitt fire, at least 105,000 acres

    The September 1970 Clampitt fire stretched from Agoura Hills to Newhall and killed four people. Sources disagree on its size; the Angeles National Forest said Tuesday that it burned 105,212 acres, but it’s listed in other federal, state and reports as 107,103 or 115,537 acres. If you count two other blazes that burned as part of the same firestorm — the Wright and Agua Dulce fires — the damage rises to about 157,000 acres.

    4. Woolsey fire, 96,949 acres

    The Woolsey fire started in November 2018 in Ventura County, sparked by Southern California Edison equipment, then spread south to the Malibu coast. Three people died and 1,643 structures were destroyed, with real estate losses estimated at $6 billion.

    5. Ranch fire, 58,401 acres

    A firestorm erupted across Southern California in October 2007 and, fanned by intense Santa Ana winds, burned almost a million acres. The Ranch fire north of Castaic was the largest in Los Angeles County.

    Los Angeles County closer to red tier as case rates decline https://www.dailynews.com/2020/09/22/los-angeles-county-closer-to-red-tier-as-case-rates-decline/ Los Angeles County moved a step closer Tuesday, Sept. 22, to advancing to the next coronavirus tracking tier in the state’s reopening blueprint, which would mean more businesses could open indoors again and capacity could expand for some of those open already.

    L.A. County registered an adjusted new coronavirus case rate per day of 7.0 per 100,000 people, according to the California Department of Public Health based on data from the week ending Sept. 12. That number was also adjusted downward from the actual rate of 7.7 due to higher than average rates of testing.

    More than 2.5 million people have now been tested for the coronavirus in L.A. County with 9% of all people testing positive.

    The county would need to hold levels of new cases per day at no more than 7.0 per 100,000 people for two consecutive weeks to advance to the “red” tier representing significant transmission. The “purple” tier represents widespread transmission.

    The county on Tuesday reported 810 new coronavirus cases and 40 associated deaths, putting the total number of people who have contracted the coronavirus to 262,144, with 6,401 having died. At least 89 healthcare workers were among those who died, according to the Department of Public Health.

    The nation also passed the grim milestone of more than 200,000 lives lost connected to the coronavirus.

    Also on Tuesday, the state cleared nail salons to reopen indoors with certain modifications under the state’s “purple” tier, the most restrictive in which the county finds itself. Officials with Department of Public Health said they would first confer with the Board of Supervisors before granting approval locally but it was unclear when those discussions would take place.

    Public health officials continued Tuesday to report considerable declines in hospitalizations since a peak in July. There were now 745 people in L.A. County hospitals who tested positive for the coronavirus, 28% in the intensive care unit, compared to more than 2,200 hospitalized in July.

    “We are hoping that we do not see an increase in the number of daily hospitalizations in the upcoming weeks associated with activities that occurred over the Labor Day holiday,” a statement from the department said.

    The totals reported Tuesday did not include updated daily counts from Long Beach and Pasadena, which operate their own health departments. Long Beach separately reported 65 new cases and no new deaths, bringing the city’s total number of new cases to 11,615 and 230 who died. Pasadena reported six new cases and no new deaths Tuesday, bring its case total to 2,536 with 122 people who died.

    Moving to the “red” tier in L.A. County would mean an opportunity for restaurants, movie theaters, personal care services and places of worship to resume indoor operations at 25% capacity or 100 people, whichever is fewer. Under the “red” tier, shopping malls and retail stores now open at 25% could open at 50%. Museums, churches and movie theaters could reopen indoors at 25% capacity while gyms could reopen at 10% capacity. Schools could also begin to reopen.

    Riverside County on Tuesday moved into the “red” tier while Orange County moved into the “red” tier earlier this month.

    Although the state grants approval, ultimate authority comes down to the L.A. County Department of Public Health, which has already shown an appetite for moving a bit slower than the state such as with outdoor cardrooms.

    “Decisions get made here differently than some of the smaller districts because we want to make sure we have the necessary compliance,” Ferrer told the Board of Supervisors last week.

    The other factor that goes into whether a county can progress in tiers, according to the state’s blueprint for reopening, is the percent of tests that come back positive. In L.A. County, the positivity rate over a 7-day period is now at 2.8%, low enough to land the county in the “orange” or moderate tier level. The state, however, requires that both standards be met and when different to go with the more restrictive.

One is for two years and the others are four-year terms. There is a mixed bag of homegrown candidates in terms of their day jobs and abilities they bring to the table. All but one are Democrats, plus one independent. City leaders have been digging out of a financial hole since the city’s checkbook balance began a downward spiral in 2005. The candidates who win on Nov. 3 will have to continue to make some hard choices to secure financial stability in the 2.37-square mile city.

    Four-year terms (two seats available)

    Incumbent:

    • Joel Fajardo, 37, is the current mayor and has been on the council since 2012. He’s a graduate of Boston University with a bachelor’s degree in international relations. The father of one daughter, Fajardo was drawn into politics to bring integrity to City Hall and stability to the city’s finances when it was under water.

    Challengers:

    • Magaly Colelli, 49, owns a business in San Fernando and is married to a retired San Fernando Police Department lieutenant. Colelli wants to have an active role in the decision-making process in the city where her parents immigrated to from Mexico in 1958 and where she raised her five children.
    • Cindy Montanez, 46, wants another crack at city politics. She was a council member and mayor from 1999 to 2002 before heading off to the State Assembly between 2002 and 2006. Currently, Montanez is the chief operating officer of TreePeople, an environmental nonprofit organization.
    • Celeste Rodriguez, 30, is a Los Angeles community development director. The mother of two graduated San Diego State University and went on to earn a master’s degree in social work from USC. She is a sixth-generation San Fernando resident who says their needs are not being met and the catalyst for her throwing her hat in the ring.

    Two-year term (one seat available)

    Incumbent

    • Mary Mendoza, 64, was appointed to the council when a seat became vacant. She is married with three sons and has an associate’s degree in disciplinary studies from Los Angeles Mission College. Mendoza wants to preserve the city’s charm and opposes high-density projects.

    Challenger

    • David Chiapa Bernal, 48, is a technician and union steward for Communications Workers of America Local 9003 and has a high school education. He is running for City Council for the second time and is a former planning and traffic and safety commissioner. Bernal is married and has an adult son.

    Once again, San Fernando voters will have a tough time at the polls deciding which of the highly qualified, experienced candidates they want at the helm of their city come Nov. 3.

    There are two incumbents, a former State Assembly member, a popular restaurant owner, a union steward and a new face to politics and the only candidate to have the endorsement of the Los Angeles Democratic Party who won’t be counted out in the race.

    Voters are also facing the fate of Measure SF, “Keep Sales Tax Revenues Local,” which would increase the sales tax to 10.25% over the current 10%. If approved, the measure promises to increase funding for street and sidewalk improvements, public infrastructure, local business reinvestment, public Wi-Fi, long-term debt reduction and wage and other general municipal purposes.

    All of the six candidates support the measure — except for critic David Chiapa Bernal.

    “Placing the burden of the cost of running the city on its tax payers has gone on for far too long,” said Bernal, a union steward said. “Our tax rate is higher than Beverly Hills, yet we don’t enjoy the perks of a city like Beverly Hills. San Fernando residents are tired of that. It’s up to elected officials to be creative and work together to try to bring our city back to where it should be financially and not always place the financial burden of running the city on our residents.”

    Bernal and City Councilmember Mary Mendoza will face off for the two-year term. The seat first became vacant in the fall of 2019, when Antonio Lopez resigned one year into a four-year term. Mendoza was appointed to replace Lopez in October 2019, and according to city election codes, she must be elected by voters in the next City Council election, which is Nov. 3.

    “I am running for City Council because I want to preserve the city’s charm, I oppose high density projects, I support our residents and our business community,” Mendoza said. “I was born and raised here and my family has lived in San Fernando for five generations. My heart belongs to my city. I will be a good public steward and focus on our financial stability for our future generations.”

    The other two open seats for a four-year term pits Mayor Joel Fajardo against restaurant owner Magaly Colelli, former State Assemblywoman Cindy Montanez and newcomer Celeste Rodriquez.

    Fajardo is up for re-election and the other open seat up for grabs was vacated by Robert C. Gonzales who is stepping down.

    Fajardo, Montanez and Rodriquez believe one way to continue to fight crime is through beefed-up, strong neighborhood watch programs and getting more residents involved. Bernal and Mendoza agree.

    Colelli, on the other hand, wants more police officers patrolling neighborhoods unlike today. She says officers are working longer than normal shifts to cover shortages and fears it can take a heavy toll on them and lead to mental and physical exhaustion.

    “The current low staffing of officers has created an environment where proactive police work is impossible,” said Colelli who is married to a retired officer. “The officers are inundated with calls that are time consuming and require an increasing number of special reports to properly document these incidents. Our citizens deserve a police department that has enough officers to create the time to properly conduct an investigation and give the great service they have always been known for, without being rushed to other calls.”

    Even though homelessness is widespread throughout Los Angeles County and throughout the region, the homeless population who primarily live in cars in San Fernando has decreased, city officials said.

    “San Fernando treats the homeless with compassion and connects them with the medical resources and regional housing services they need,” Fajardo said. “In order to decrease homelessness throughout the region, the county needs more permanent supportive housing.”

    Rodriguez, a Los Angeles community development director and the new kid on the block, would like to see an approach to the homelessness issue specific to San Fernando’s homeless population.

    “Almost 90% of our homeless population are sheltered in their vehicles,” Rodriguez said. “Strategies like safe parking, where there is a safe, designated space with resources to connect to services and housing could be helpful. In addition, our city should play a more active role in the point-in-time count to conduct a demographic survey of those experiencing. This will allow us to better understand the experiences and barriers the population is facing in order to work directly with Los Angeles County and the Los Angeles Homeless Service Authority to tailor programs and strategies for our community.”

    As with many other cities facing the impacts of the coronavirus on the community and dedicated businesses, San Fernando is no different.

    Once known for its bridal shops and hair and nail salons, the city now boasts specialty operations from manufacturing to family eateries to retail.

    A diversity of businesses and their owners have emerged over the past decade, but the stress of the coronavirus is noticeable.

    A few candidates think the city needs more dining and entertainment venues such as a movie theater that could make it a destination city and provide more jobs for the locals.

    San Fernando has a close proximity to major freeways and a Metrolink stop in its favor, but oftentimes residents have to leave town to buy what they need.

    Montanez intends to engage local businesses, chambers of commerce and other stakeholders to explore opportunities to redevelop San Fernando’s historic downtown, secure additional funds and financing and work to strengthen the city’s business climate.

    “We could do more by protecting industrial zoning, which would bring back industrial jobs, and redeveloping 20-plus acres of the swap meet site,” Montanez said. “We should also provide incentives for local business owners and work with the larger business community to provide additional incentives from federal, state, and local entities to attract more diversity in the city.”

    Cindy Montanez, 46, wants another crack at San Fernando city politics. She was a council member and mayor from 1999 to 2002 before heading off to the State Assembly between 2002 and 2006.

    New law will tighten loophole that allowed sale of puppy mill dogs in California pet stores https://www.dailynews.com/2020/09/22/new-law-will-tighten-loophole-that-allowed-sale-of-puppy-mill-dogs-in-california-pet-stores/ Sweet Churro died, despite thousands of dollars spent to save her. So did Sunday. Taquito and Bella suffered but were lucky — they survived.

    The one thing these pups had in common: They were sold in California pet stores as bona fide “rescues,” even though they were actually bred at puppy mills, where disease and neglect are more the rule than the exception. Breeders wiggled around California’s new puppy mill ban by “laundering” puppy mill pups through newly created sham rescues, which they registered as nonprofits with the IRS.

    That allowed young, pure-bred, gravely ill dogs like Churro, Taquito, Sunday and Bella to be sold for thousands of dollars in Golden State pet shops with the patina of legitimacy.

    On Sept. 18, Gov. Gavin Newsom signed AB 2152 into law, aiming to close this heart-rending loophole. “Bella’s Act,” by Assemblyman Todd Gloria, D-San Diego, will prohibit pet stores from selling dogs, cats or rabbits, period. Animals will still be available in pet stores — but only if they come from public shelters and bona fide rescue groups that do not deal with breeders. Bella’s Act caps adoption fees at $500 and prohibits pet stores from receiving fees for allowing animals to be displayed — which proponents hope quashes the puppy-profit motive once and for all.

    “In California, we are putting an end to the cruel puppy mill industry for good,” Newsom said in a prepared statement. “I am proud to sign this legislation to advance California’s nation-leading animal welfare protections and help more pets join loving families.”

    Newsom also signed SB 573 by Sen. Ling Ling Chang, R-Diamond Bar, which with current information before releasing them to new owners, or owners seeking to reclaim them.

    “Microchips not only help ensure your pet gets returned if they are lost or stolen and they are completely safe, but protect your pet in the event of a disaster,” said Karen Halligan, chief veterinarian of the Lucy Pet Foundation and Social Compassion in Legislation board member, in a prepared statement. “Especially during these times of uncertainty with COVID-19, with shelters being closed or limited capacity due to staffing, it’s more important than ever that all dogs and cats are microchipped to protect them and ensure their return to the safety of their human family.”

    The laws are aimed at reducing euthanasia. More than 100,000 animals are put to death in California’s public shelters every year, according to analyses of AB 485, the original puppy mill ban.

    Bella’s Act “will reduce local government and humane law enforcement costs and is a crucial and urgent step  forward in the effort to abolish cruel puppy mills across the country and would uphold our state legacy as a national leader in animal welfare,” said a letter to the governor from a coalition of animal rights groups. The $500 cap on adoption fees, the letter said, “will ensure that only humane business models where true partnerships exist between pet stores and rescue organizations persist in the future.”

    The microchip bill will do the same, supporters said. Some 500,000 dogs and cats land in California shelters each year, and only a tiny fraction of those without identification — 15 percent of dogs and 2 percent of cats — are ever reunited with their families.

    “We thank Governor Newsom for signing this first in the nation lifesaving bill into law that will help reduce euthanasia of dogs and cats that already have homes while also saving taxpayer dollars,” said Judie Mancuso, founder and president of Social Compassion in Legislation, in a statement.

    One more animal welfare bill still sitting on the governor’s desk is AB 1788 by Assemblyman Richard Bloom, D-Santa Monica, which would curtail the use of rodent poisons that are impacting native wildlife until a state review is complete. It’s sponsored by the Animal Legal Defense Fund but opposed by pest control interests.

    Blood bank bill stalls

    Perhaps the greatest disappointment, according to some animal rights activists, was the failure of a bill that would have phased out such as Garden Grove’s Hemopet, where dogs are kept in cages for months and years to harvest their blood for sale, while also legalizing a more humane, volunteer donation system. The bill, which stalled in the Legislature because it did not deal with COVID-19, is expected to be resurrected in the next session.

    Worth noting is that the state’s 2020-21 budget allocates up to $5 million to give animal shelters more training and resources to work toward the state’s no-kill goal, though it was just a fraction of what was originally planned; and that Consumer Affairs approved an expansion of veterinary telemedicine during the COVID emergency, said Jennifer Fearing of Fearless Advocacy.

    Lance Cpls. Anthony Whisenant, 20, and Ryan White, 22, were arrested Tuesday, according to the U.S. Justice Department. A Marine Corps spokesman said both were transferred from their regiment at the base into the custody of federal agents.

    In a statement, a Justice Department spokesman said investigators zeroed in on Whisenant after he allegedly sold the oxycodone pills to an undercover agent multiple times, “often for amounts exceeding $1,000 per buy.”

    Prosecutors accused Whisenant of helping setting up a drug deal on May 22 to the Marine, who was found dead the next morning, apparently of a fentanyl overdose. Prosecutors didn’t disclose the identity of the Marine who died.

    A total of five suspects were accused of furnishing drugs to Marines at the base, as well as to civilian customers.

    Whisenant faces one count of distributing fentanyl. White faces one count of hindering the investigation and helping Whisenant and another suspect avoid arrest.

    Along with the two Marines, prosecutors also charged 26-year-old Jordan McCormick on Tuesday, accusing him of operating the ring out of him home in Palmdale, supplying four sellers with cocaine, ecstasy, LSD and oxycodone laced with fentanyl.

    The most recent filing replaces an indictment from August that charged two other civilians — 24-year-old Gustavo Solis of Sylmar and 23-year-old Jessica Perez of Pacoima — of acting as drug distributors for the ring.

    Solis also faces a weapons charge. Both pleaded not guilty, and are scheduled to stand trial in late October.

    In the indictment, the grand jury detailed how the alleged ring operated, which involved McCormick allegedly texting and sending messages over Snapchat to the dealers to coordinate amounts of drugs to sell to buyers.

    Because the drug sales and the death did not occur on base, the Marine Corps has handed over most of the investigation to the Justice Department, said 1st Lt. Cameron Edinburgh, a spokesman for Camp Pendleton. But Edinburgh said all three Marines served in the same unit.

    “It was off base,” Edinburgh said of the Marine’s death. “He was in the same battalion (as Whisenant and White).”

    According to the indictment, McCormick sent a package with 1,000 oxycodone pills to Solis on May 22.

    The same day, Whisenant allegedly contacted Solis with an order for 10 pills. Solis allegedly met with Whisenant, White and the other Marine to complete the sale.

    The Marine was found dead the next morning, prosecutors said.

    Just two days later on May 24, Solis sent Snapchat messages showing a menu of drugs to “an individual defendant Solis believed to be a drug customer, but who was, in fact, an Undercover Agent working with the Naval Criminal Intelligence Service,” according to the indictment.

    Whisenant faces 20 years in prison if convicted of the fentanyl distribution charge. White faces 10 years in prison for the abetting charge.

    An attorney for Whisenant was unable to comment Tuesday on the charge, but said he had not yet spoken to his client. An attorney for White did not immediately return a request for comment

    4 different candidates vie for 2 seats on Calabasas City Council https://www.dailynews.com/2020/09/22/4-different-candidates-vie-for-2-seats-on-calabasas-city-council/ Incumbent: Mayor Alicia Weintraub, 43, has been on the Calabasas City Council since 2015. She graduated UCLA and went on to earn a master’s of public policy degree from Pepperdine University. The married mother of two has spent a long career working for cities in Southern California and uses her local government and public policy experience in Calabasas.

    Challengers:

    • Susan Fredericks Ploussard is a 64-year-old dentist with no elected positions to tout but many years as a community volunteer and a board member at several medical-related institutions. She is a UCLA Bruin through and through and married with two children also in the medical field.
    • Peter Kraut, 53, is married and has two adult children. Kraut has his degree in architectural engineering technology and has been a Calabasas planning commissioner for four years and believes in listening to residents is a No. 1 priority.
    • Dennis Washburn, 77, has been married for 54 years and has three children and four grandchildren. The Navy veteran has been in an elected office for 34 plus years and is a founding member of Calabasas and served on the Calabasas City Council from 1991 to 2011.

    The Race: Four strong candidates with varying leadership skills and backgrounds are vying for two seats on the council.

    ______________________________________________________________________________

    While Calabasas residents are possibly saying hello to new faces on the city council, the celebrity Kardashian family is saying goodbye to their television audience who has been watching their lives from their luxurious Calabasas home for years.

    Four contenders — one an incumbent, one a city founder, another a planning commissioner, along with the newest face in town — have thrown their hats in the ring.

    Two of them will emerge victorious in the Nov. 3 election.

    Those elected will have a seat on the dais and a hand in bringing the town through the financial and emotional impacts the coronavirus has had on residents and businesses and updating the general plan as it relates to development, preservation of open space, environmental resources, traffic issues and the infrastructure.

    Helping the homeless and securing fire protection and public safety funds within the city’s 14-square miles that is nearly half comprised of open space will also be on their plate.

    Mayor Alicia Weintraub, who is up for reelection, presented the state of the city address on Sept. 16 in which she shared how the city has been going through rough times especially since the pandemic.

    “But I believe through hard work, we will come out even stronger,” she said.

    Weintraub wants to keep protecting Calabasas’ special way of life while safeguarding hard-earned tax dollars so that the city remains fiscally secure.

    “I will continue to make certain the city addresses the needs of our residents,” Weintraub said. “I will work with other neighboring cities to coordinate public safety, protect our environment and strengthen our combined ability to improve first responder capabilities throughout the region. Public safety and emergency preparedness are issues that we continuously need to improve and focus our efforts.”

    The second council seat came up for grabs when councilmember Fred Gaines chose not to seek re-election after two terms. In the spring, Gaines was selected chair of The Valley Economic Alliance, a nonprofit collaborative of stakeholders across Burbank, Calabasas, Glendale, Los Angeles and San Fernando.

    Susan Fredericks-Ploussard, a dentist and the new face in Calabasas politics, said she initially took a step toward the world of elected office because of the city’s poor response to the Woolsey Fire and inappropriate spending by the City Council.

    “Then when the pandemic hit, I believe with my master’s in public health, I could assist the city and school district management in their efforts to handle the next phases of further reopening of schools and businesses,” Fredericks-Ploussard added. “It is imperative for the financial and psychological well-being of the city to get back to more normal operations. A public health education may seem like an unconventional path to the city council, but I can think of no better preparation for our road ahead.”

    Candidates Peter Kraut and Dennis Washburn will have something to say about that.

    Both men are currently planning commissioners.

    Kraut says his voting record on the commission proves he can and will protect open space and environmental resources in Calabasas.

    “(The) Calabasas City Council has not been acting in the best interest of its residents, sacrificing the environment for developers and taking money from our schools to give to big businesses,” Kraut said. “Our General Plan Housing Element is up for renewal. I’ll fight to protect open space and to keep new development out of very high fire hazard severity zones like Calabasas.”

    Washburn, a city founder, became the first mayor in the gateway to the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area in northern Los Angeles County in 1991 and served on the council for more than two decades before resigning his seat a decade ago.

    He’s been serving on the planning commission and now wants to circle back onto the council.

    “My next four years or more will be devoted to creating the fire, life, safety corridor plans for our Calabasas Scenic Highway Corridors that we have successfully implemented over the past 30 years to protect, beautify and conserve our human and natural resources,” he said. “This is to respond to the crises we face with the respiratory plague, the economic collapse and uncertain recovery strategies. We also need to totally revamp our emergency communications and computer-driven systems to meet the imperatives of our future.”

    Fredericks-Ploussard and Weintraub believe neighborhood watches are key to keeping crime, while Kraut wants law enforcement patrolling in the most needed areas and Washburn favors the path the city is already taking.

    “We will continue to devote nearly a quarter of our operating budget to public safety, security, health and civic services to Calabasas and our creative sourcing of funding and management of our needs for law enforcement, fire protection, emergency response and collaboration with our sister cities, counties, state and federal partners,” Washburn said.

    The candidates generally believe business has been good in Calabasas in the past, but the pandemic has shaken its foundation and business owners have been under siege.

    Empty storefronts and office buildings are a sign of the times.

    “I believe that Calabasas would greatly benefit from a program that offers grants and fee waivers for new businesses in existing retail centers and offices,” Kraut said.

    All of the candidates express compassion for the homeless, many who sleep in cars. Weintraub would like to hire a homeless outreach coordinator.

    “No shelter is planned in the Agoura, Calabasas, Westlake area, but outreach workers from the county are available to help and be supportive about finding housing, etc.,” Fredericks-Ploussard said.

    Residents will also be voting on the 2020 Cannabis Tax Measure C, which places a 10% tax on the gross receipts of cannabis businesses delivering products in Calabasas.

    Currently, Calabasas prohibits cannabis businesses from operating within city limits.

    Measure C will not change that prohibition.

    Fredericks-Ploussard is the only candidate in opposition.

    Pacific League schools still waiting for go-ahead to have athletic activity https://www.dailynews.com/2020/09/22/pacific-league-schools-still-waiting-for-go-ahead-to-have-athletic-activity/

    The Pacific League coaches and athletes are waiting.

    The league that includes Arcadia, Burbank, John Burroughs, Crescenta Valley, Glendale, Muir and Pasadena High also spans four schools districts: Glendale, Pasadena, Arcadia and Burbank. Each with its own rules and way to enforce them. Yet, none of the districts has allowed for athletic activity on a school campus.

    The Los Angeles County of Public Health has guidelines for school districts to follow in regards to sports, but if a school district tightens the guidelines, or in this case, won’t even adopt them, there’s nothing a coach can do.

    Crescenta Valley, the defending Division 10 CIF-SS football champions, are still waiting to get its title defense underway.

    “Of course I want to see my players (in person),” Falcons coach Hudson Gossard said. “I’m not sure when we’ll get on the field.”

    Burbank High athletic director Patrick McMenamin said there was a league meeting a couple weeks ago to discuss what athletic activity might look like when it returns, but until then it’s a waiting game.

    “I have no timeline,” McMenamin said.

    Each week, it seems another school district gives the green light to at least have conditioning on their campuses. This week, Simi Valley, Royal and the entire Foothill League – all in the William S. Hart Unified School District – were given the OK to start football conditioning.

    The Hart District is home to Canyon, Castaic, Hart, Golden Valley, Saugus, Valencia and West Ranch. One district, one set of rules, which can make life easier for a league. If the Pacific League sees any athletic activity, it’s unlikely that all four districts will allow it at the same time. That could lead to half the league practicing, while the other half isn’t.

    Additional football leagues (with public school members) – apart from those in the Los Angeles Unified School District – that are participating in football practice (at least conditioning) now include the Foothill, Golden, Marmonte and Canyon League.

    Alhambra couple who contracted COVID-19 aboard ship sues Princess Cruises https://www.dailynews.com/2020/09/22/alhambra-couple-who-contracted-covid-19-aboard-ship-sues-princess-cruises/ An Alhambra couple and their cousin are seeking more than a $1 million in damages from Princess Cruises, alleging the company failed to take steps that would have prevented them from contracting COVID-19 in March aboard a ship that sailed from Sydney, Australia.

    A lawsuit filed earlier this month by Leroy and Gina Paialii and their cousin, Elizabeth Hill of Honolulu, alleges Santa Clarita-based Princess Cruises negligently allowed the Ruby Princess to sail March 8 despite a previous COVID-19 outbreak on the ship as well as other vessels in its fleet.

    “Yet they recklessly decided to board another 3,000 passengers (on the Ruby Princess)…. and put their lives at risk, which is why plaintiffs contracted the highly communicable disease COVID-19,” the suit alleges.

    Leroy Paialii said Tuesday he and his wife were sailing with about a dozen family members, most of whom did not become ill. He declined to elaborate.

    In a separate matter, a class-action lawsuit was filed in June in U.S. District Court against Princess Cruises on behalf of the more than 2,800 passengers exposed to COVID-19 on the Grand Princess that sailed from San Francisco to Mexico in February.

    Negin Kamali, a spokeswoman for Princess Cruises, declined to comment on the pending litigation, but said the company is sensitive to the difficulties experienced by guests and crew members because of the COVID-19 outbreak.

    “Our response throughout this process has focused on the well-being of our guests and crew within the parameters dictated to us by the government agencies involved and the evolving medical understanding of this new illness,” Kamali said in an email.

    Princess Cruises made international headlines in early February when its Diamond Princess ship suffered a COVID-19 outbreak in Yokohama, Japan.

    “The outbreak began with ten cases, and rapidly multiplied to 700 cases, as a result of the flawed two-week quarantine on the ship,” the lawsuit says.

    The outbreak prompted the U.S. Centers for Disease Control to issue a statement Feb. 18 on the dire conditions aboard the Diamond Princess.

    “CDC believes the rate of new reports of positives new on board, especially among those without symptoms, highlights the high burden of infection on the ship and the potential for ongoing risk,” the statement says.

    Among 3,711 Diamond Princess passengers and crew members, more than 800 tested positive for COVID-19 and 10 people died.

    Subsequently, Princess Cruises suffered two additional outbreaks on its Grand Princess sailings of Feb. 11 and 21 out of San Francisco, resulting in more than four deaths and hundreds of infections to its passengers and crew members.

    Despite the outbreaks, Princess Cruises continued to sail from various ports of call, including Sydney, where the Ruby Princess was anchored.

    Princess Cruises provided vouchers to passengers to buy lunch while the March 8 sailing was delayed for six hours so the Ruby Princess could be further disinfected from a previous COVID-19 outbreak, the complaint says.

    The Ruby Princess failed to employ proper screening protocols for COVID-19 before boarding passengers, didn’t quarantine those who showed symptoms of the virus or inform those aboard there was outbreak, allowing the cruise to continue until it returned to Australia three days early, the lawsuit says.

    The Paialiis and Hill began showing COVID-19 symptoms about March 20. They exhibited fever, coughing, headaches, body aches, trouble breathing and loss of taste. The trio remain traumatized from the illness, according to the lawsuit.

    The suit describes Princess Cruises’ actions resulting in the plaintiffs’ illness as inexcusable.

    “Princess chose to place profits over the safety of its passengers, crew and the general public in continuing to operate business as usual despite their knowledge of the actual risk of injury to plaintiffs,” the complaint says.

    No fans for Blast knock-outs as ECB warn of 'severe' consequences of further lockdown measures http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/content/story/1233083.html?CMP=OTC-RSS Tue, 22 Sep 2020 19:10:27 +0000 BlogLikes - Find Most Popular Blogs UK Sport Cricket Ecb Angels SS Andrelton Simmons opts out of the season https://www.dailynews.com/2020/09/22/angels-ss-andrelton-simmons-opts-out-of-the-season/ With five games left in the regular season and the postseason the longest of long shots, Angels shortstop Andrelton Simmons has decided to opt out for the rest of the season.

    The 31-year-old Simmons, who missed about three weeks with a sprained left ankle, will be a free agent after this season.

    “I have made the decision to opt out of the remainder of the season. Major League Baseball and the Major League Baseball Players Association developed an environment and system that empowered players and provided us the opportunity to decide on whether to play or opt out of the season,” Simmons said in a statement Tuesday. “At this moment, I feel this is the best decision for me and my family. We don’t know what the future holds, but we would like to sincerely thank the Angels organization and Angels fans for welcoming and making us feel at home.”

    Simmons finishes the season with a .295/.348/.352 slash line in 30 games. He hit zero home runs with 19 runs, 10 RBIs and two stolen bases in 122 at-bats

    “Earlier today, Andrelton Simmons informed the Club that he has chosen to opt out of the remainder of the season,” the Angels said in a statement. “This year has presented unique challenges for many and the Angels respect Andrelton’s decision.”

    The Angels placed Simmons on the Restricted List and have added infielder Elliot Soto to the active roster.

    Simmons came to the Angels on Nov. 12, 2015, with catcher José Briceño in a trade with the Atlanta Braves for Erick Aybar, Sean Newcomb and Chris Ellis. He had already won two Gold Gloves with the Braves and added two more with the Angels in 2017 and 2018.

    State clears nail salons to reopen, but L.A. County still restricts them https://www.dailynews.com/2020/09/22/state-clears-nail-salons-to-reopen-but-l-a-county-still-restricts-them/ Nail salon operators who have been fighting to reopen amid the coronavirus pandemic scored a major victory on Tuesday, Sept. 22, when the state authorized the businesses to resume limited operations, but don’t expect them to immediately open in Los Angeles County.

    Individual counties can impose stricter regulations than the state, based on local COVID-19 data. Los Angeles County health officials have previously said they don’t plan to ease any more business restrictions until at least the end of September to ensure the county does not experience a post-Labor Day spike in cases.

    Officials at L.A. County Public Health Department on Tuesday said the county would be consulting with the Board of Supervisors to determine the “timing of adopting changes to the County Health Officer Order that would allow nail salons to resume under modified indoor operations,” according to a statement.

    It was unclear exactly when that discussion would take place. The Board of Supervisors canceled its Tuesday, Sept. 22, meeting and will meet again next week. Any meeting with more than two board members would be considered a possible Brown Act violation.

    But the state’s easing of restrictions on nail salons offered a glimmer of hope for the industry statewide.

    State health secretary Dr. Mark Ghaly made the announcement during a midday briefing, saying that after an extensive review of the operations, the state will authorize them to reopen statewide, even if they are located in a county in the most-restrictive tier of the state’s economic-recovery matrix. The state had previously barred nail salons from offering indoor operations in counties in the restrictive “purple” tier.

    Los Angeles County is in the purple tier. Orange County is in the less-restrictive red tier.

    “So statewide, nail salons (are) allowed to begin operations. We’ll be giving more information about that soon,” Ghaly said. “That is something we’re announcing today as we look at these different tiers. That (nail salons) will be in the purple tier once again.

    “… Looking at the operations of nail salons, understanding the number of steps that they can take to make a lower-risk environment for both staff and customers, with some new additions to that sector guidance and how to set up operations in a way that is lower risk, we believe that we’re able to add that to the number of sectors within the purple tier, or that widespread tier,” Ghaly said.

    Although the exact guidelines were not immediately released, the state will likely mandate limited indoor capacity, along with standard measures such as mandatory face coverings and social distancing.

    City News Service and Staff Writer David Rosenfeld contributed to this report.

    Although the FAA granted a 21-day extension period for public comment on the environmental report for the proposed 14-terminal replacement project, the councilman and city attorney had asked for a 75-day extension.

    The public now has until Oct. 27 to comment on a nearly 3,000-page document, Krekorian said.

    “The FAA’s extension falls far short of what would be an appropriate amount of time for a project of this magnitude,” Krekorian said. “Regrettably, the FAA has again missed an opportunity to demonstrate good faith to the people of the San Fernando Valley who suffer the consequences of the agency’s decisions.

    “Still, this extension does give the public three more weeks to submit comments, and I urge every resident of our community who is impacted by the airport to act swiftly to make their voices heard.”

    Krekorian said residents in the San Fernando Valley have already dealt with aircraft noise for years, and most recently the FAA’s NextGen strategy rerouted many flights that residents have said fly over their homes in the area.

    “Whether it’s changing flight patterns or building a new 14-gate terminal, what happens at Burbank Airport has huge implications for valley residents’ quality of life,” Feuer said. “We pushed the FAA for more days, but got just 21. So time is short, and I encourage every resident who cares about this issue to weigh in while you can. This is a major project and it’s imperative that the FAA hear from you.”

    The environmental report addresses a number of potential effects concerning a project that could affect residents and businesses in direct proximity to the project, Feuer said.

    Because Los Angeles is not represented on the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority, public comment on Burbank Airport projects is the only way for Los Angeles residents to be heard as part of environmental review, Feuer said.
