Tom Brady’s rejection might have benefited the Chargers and Justin Herbert

COSTA MESA — Justin Herbert probably can’t tell you where he was when Tom Brady replaced Drew Bledsoe in Week 2 of the 2001 season because he was only 3 years old at the time. Herbert’s parents, Mark and Holly, likely have a better recollection of where he was when the legend of Brady began. Justin Herbert was starting elementary school when Brady won back-to-back Super Bowl titles and his third overall with the New England Patriots in 2005. He was a junior pitcher at Sheldon High School in Euge...

Chargers QB Justin Herbert learning from his mistakes

Chargers cornerback Chris Harris Jr. got to study rookie quarterback Justin Herbert while he was sidelined for a few practices last week.

The former All-Pro cornerback echoed those praises in interviews and recently called him the real deal. After nearly two weeks of padded practices, the reviews on the Chargers’ No. 6 overall pick have been vastly positive. Wide receiver ...

Twig Cheese Serving Set

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. While some artists are captivated by sunsets, pewtersmith Deborah Chapman found herself inspired by twigs. Taken with the twists and turns of the fallen sticks outside her Eugene, Oregon studio, she began casting them in solid, lead-free, food-safe pewter. Yes, the resulting set is a work of art, but it's one intended to serve cheese and stand wear. The two spreaders, a fork, and a spoon make a lovely gift for anyone feathering a nest. Hand-cast in Oregon.

Sensible reform idea: ask the police to do less

One of the more intriguing police-reform ideas to emerge in the wake of George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis is remarkable for its simplicity. Many troubling incidents occur after officers respond to minor disturbances involving mentally ill people or non-criminal matters. Why not skip the cops and instead call social workers or mental-health professionals? It’s a common-sense question asked not only by reformers, but by prominent police officials. “We’re asking cops to do too much in this countr...

Social workers, not cops respond to many 911 calls in Eugene, Oregon — and LA is watching

One dry, summer day several years ago a mother watched as her adult son broke furniture and smashed the walls of their trailer-park home. The Eugene, Oregon woman dialed 911 for help. She pleaded to the emergency dispatcher: Don’t send police. Her son carried a history of traumatic encounters with law enforcement, and she feared how he would react to an armed officer. Though Eugene officers still went, the dispatcher also routed the call to a radio in a white van that happened to be parked near ...

LA leaders considering deploying unarmed teams to some calls instead of police

A Los Angeles City Council committee on Wednesday backed a plan to study how the city could reduce the number of police responses to emergencies by instead sending out unarmed teams of medical and social workers on non-violent calls. The panel’s motion calls for looking at how the city could avoid sending police to assist on mental-health-crisis situations, incidences involving substance use, and other non-violent emergency calls that officers now take. Trained teams that do not carry weapons wo...

A Federal Court Threw Out A High Profile Climate Lawsuit. Here’s What It Might Mean For The Future of Climate Litigation

On Friday, the Ninth Circuit court of appeals threw out the high profile lawsuit Juliana v. United States, in which 21 young Americans sued the United States government for failing to act to stop climate change. The court acknowledged that while the threat of climate change is real, it “reluctantly” concluded that the issue should be raised with the executive and legislative branches of government, not the courts. The suit, which was filed in 2015, argues that climate change threatens the p...
