Vontaze Burfict on joining nemesis Antonio Brown on Raiders: 'It's all positive, man'

Ugly history with new teammate Antonio Brown One of those hits was a brutal helmet-to-helmet blow late in a 2016 playoff game that ended up costing Burfict three games and more than $500,000. This, of course, will provide a personnel challenge in Oakland as Brown and Burfict will now be teammates. The 2016 hit wasn't the only time Burfict went after Brown's head.

Radio: 88.5 FM program director Sky Daniels is retiring, and here’s what he’s planning to do next

“No, Bean and I are not forming a duo in U.K. radio,” joked former KCSN (88.5 FM) programmer Sky Daniels, referring to the news that half of KROQ’s Kevin and Bean morning team is leaving local radio and moving to England. But in a blow to both the local radio and local music scenes, Daniels is leaving as well, making the decision to retire. “I thought I was retiring in 2011,” Daniels told me. “I had been dealing with some health issues related to Crohn’s Disease and the related medications for 1...

Gavin Newsom does it again with death row reprieve

Gavin Newsom is fond of making grandiloquent, headline-grabbing gestures couched in moralistic terms. His tendency first surfaced in 2004 when, as the newly elected mayor of San Francisco, he directed officials to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples in defiance of a state law passed by California voters just a few years earlier. “I had no right to do this,” Newsom to an interviewer last year, when he was running for governor. “We didn’t have the formal authority. But we tried to exercise...

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 ...

2018-19 Erie Otters: A Season of Pain, Pride and Promise

The Erie Otters fought with everything they had all season. In the end, it was not quite enough to qualify for the OHL Playoffs. With a chance to make the playoffs during the final week of the season, the Otters had four chances to make something happen in the standings. But due to an incredibly difficult schedule which included playing seven games in 10 days, they ran out of gas. Despite falling just short, it doesn’t take away from what the Otters almost accomplished. Consider for a second wha...

How a slowing economy could hit California state budget

Gov. Gavin Newsom’s first budget proposal, unveiled two months ago, took a surprisingly conservative approach, given his promises of high-dollar spending during his campaign for the governorship. While he proposed token appropriations to expand health insurance for the poor and pre-kindergarten care and education, his 2019-20 budget would devote most of the state’s hefty surpluses to reserves, one-time expenditures and paying down debt. It was, in brief, just the sort of cautious budget that out...

Kings fall 4-3 after late goal from Panthers

LOS ANGELES – Kings goalie Jonathan Quick is a man of few words.

Don’t let ‘crony capitalist’ agencies return to California cities

One of former Gov. Jerry Brown’s crowning achievements came in 2011 when, in the midst of a budget crisis, he spearheaded the effort to shutter California’s controversial redevelopment agencies. They epitomized “crony capitalism” by giving local planning czars the power to use eminent domain on behalf of politically connected developers — and by creating a slush fund to lavish public dollars on projects that were hatched in City Hall. Redevelopment was created in the 1940s as a tool to combat ur...

Tyler Toffoli hopeful Kings can end forgettable season by playing spoiler

LOS ANGELES — Thirteen games left, 17 points out of a postseason berth. That was the Kings’ plight ahead of their game Thursday night against Nashville that opened a five-game homestand at Staples Center.
