Glen Wood, the stock car racing pride of Virginia, scored 99 NASCAR Cup wins in a career that started in 1950. He and his brother Leonard are considered among the pioneers in the sport and played major roles in popularizing the sport in Southern California, a continent away from their native Virginia. Following a lengthy illness, Glen Wood, who was the oldest living member of the NASCAR Hall of Fame, died Friday at the age of 93. “In every way, Glen Wood was an original.

T.J. Dillashaw trades pounds for glory to face Henry Cejudo and become a UFC legend

For weeks, T.J. Dillashaw posted pictures of his transition from bantamweight to flyweight. The UFC 135-pound champion looked shredded as he trained his body to move down an entire weight division in his pursuit of MMA history. To fight fans, though, the former Cal State Fullerton wrestler appeared on an unhealthy path. They bemoaned how Dillashaw looked terrible, drained and dry. “That’s just expected no matter what,” the Orange resident said of his move to 125 pounds. “Someone who wants to try...

Analyzing the Ducks’ Transaction Frenzy

It’s been a wild week so far in Anaheim Ducks country and amazingly, they’ve only played two games. The action has been more intense on the Ducks’ roster than on the ice.

Mexican Riviera Cruise Ports – Highlights and My Favorite Experiences

Sailing along the golden coast of Baja California has long been one of the most popular cruise itineraries – just watch reruns of “The Love Boat” if you don’t believe me. So when Crystal Cruises approached me about sailing with them in this near perfect part of the world, I very quickly accepted. Sailing from Puerto Vallarta to Los Angeles, most of the trip was along the shores of Baja California, an area that was completely new to me. Over the course of a week I enjoyed the many ports of call ...

UCLA gymnast Katelyn Ohashi rediscovers joy via her viral floor routines and poetry

Finishing Them Off

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press, The Wings have won two games in a row for the first time in six weeks, on the strength of closing out opponents in the third period. That was a facet they lacked as recently as this month. Being able to do what the Wings did in their last two third periods - rallying from a one-goal deficit against Anaheim by scoring three goals and padding a one-goal lead at Minnesota with two goals – is especially encouraging for a young team. “I thin...

Don’t believe your windshield wipers: Despite storms, Southern California water conservation is still needed

As rain continues to pelt Southern California, signs of an abundance of or even too much water are everywhere: Roads are flooded, reservoirs are filling and the wait time for Radiator Springs Racers at the damp Disneyland Resort has been less than a half hour. But as residents of burn areas evacuate and even heavier rain is forecast for Thursday, those who watch the state and local water supplies note that while the drought is technically over, the need to conserve water is not.

Hopeless Records founder Louis Posen looks back on 25 years of hard work, good times and punk rock

Hopeless Records started as a mere hobby for Los Angeles native Louis Posen, but it has turned into 25 years of blood, sweat and a whole lot of fun and punk rock music. Back in the early ’90s, Posen was a film student at Cal State Northridge and had just shot a music video for punk rock band NOFX when he was introduced to Huntington Beach band Guttermouth. The group basically dared Posen to put out its latest 7-inch, even though his only knowledge of the business side of music came from a book h...
