LAUSD teachers went on strike in 1989. But are the stakes higher in 2019?

Whether they were stuck in an auditorium or playing long-term hooky, many a school kid old enough to remember the 1989 Los Angeles teachers strike recalls the period as nine days of good old-fashioned lawlessness. Quoted in a New York Times article at the time, LAPD Lieut. Frank Valdez expressed his concern about “little predators” roaming LA’s downtown streets. “The problem kids are not going to go to school and it’s going to create problems all over, not just on campus,” he said during the str...

Ottawa Senators Midseason Report

The recent 5-4 defeat against the Carolina Hurricanes marked the eighth straight loss for the Ottawa Senators, putting them last in the NHL with 35 points (from ‘GARRIOCH GAME REPORT: Senators’ eighth straight loss stings – Ottawa Sun – 1/6/19). Over those eight losses, they’ve been outscored 37-20 and allowing five goals to a Hurricanes team struggling to find the back of the net seemed to be the cherry on top. The Hurricanes rank third-worst this season with 67 goals scored, despite havi...

Airports Start To Feel Strain Of Shutdown As First Missed Paycheck Approaches

DALLAS (AP) — The partial government shutdown is starting to affect air travel. Over the weekend, some airports had long lines at checkpoints, apparently caused by a rising number of security officers calling in sick while they are not getting paid. Safety inspectors aren’t even on the job. A Federal Aviation Administration spokesman said Monday that inspectors are being called back to work on a case-by-case basis, with a priority put on inspecting airline fleets. So far, the impact of the sh...

Predators Prowl: Capitalizing on Soft Schedule…Sort Of

What’s the drawback of being a sports fan? Let me start over. What’s one of several drawbacks of following sports? False expectations. Specifically when we feel that a team or player should perform at a certain level only to be let down when that individual or group of individuals lay a dud. And that’s just how the Predators closed out this week. When I first thought about writing this week’s Predators Prowl, I had in mind that I would go heavy on discussing the team’s ability to win the games t...

UFC 231: Valentina Shevchenko ready to fight, title or not

Forget finally getting to fight for the flyweight championship Saturday. Valentina Shevchenko is thrilled to finally be fighting, period. Forgive Shevchenko for being impatient.

Yet here we are, 10 months after her last fight, and the blonde Kyrgyzstani is ready to tear down the Octagon to get at former strawweight queen and Muay Thai nemes...

Voters guide to California’s 11 ballot propositions

On Nov. 6, voters will weigh 11 ballot propositions that, on their face, sound no more or less crazy than usual for a California ballot. There is a seemingly obligatory fight about the gas tax and four (!) propositions about housing. Other high-stakes proposals would put money toward water conservation and hospital construction. But, as ever, 2018 also will include propositions that seem aimed at narrower audiences. Should ambulance drivers be on call during meal breaks? It’s on the ballot. Shou...

Thanks, HBO Boxing, for 45 years of indelible memories

As someone who has reported on boxing the past 25 years, it was stunning to hear HBO will not be televising boxing any longer after doing so for 45 years. That could always change. But for now, HBO will be out of the boxing business by the end of the year.Here is, in part, its statement Thursday in that regard: “Our mission at HBO Sports is to elevate the brand. We look for television projects that are high-profile, high-access, and highly ambitious in the stories they seek to tell and the quali...

Pittsburgh Penguins 2018-19 Season Preview

After becoming the first team to repeat as Stanley Cup Champions in the salary cap era, the Pittsburgh Penguins entered the 2017-18 season with the chance to three-peat, the first opportunity since the 1980-83 New York Islanders. In the offseason, they lost Nick Bonino, Chris Kunitz, Marc-Andre Fleury, Matt Cullen and Trevor Daley. It didn’t help that they opened the season without a legitimate third-line center, going with Greg McKegg behind Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin. The team looked to b...

‘La Bamba Bob’ Morales, older brother of rock legend Ritchie Valens, dies at 81

By Dalia Espinosa, Correspondent Bob Morales, the older brother of late rock legend Ritchie Valens who made a name for himself as La Bamba Bob throughout his own turblent past, died Saturday night in his Central Coast home after battling prostate cancer.
