Casino Insider: COVID-19 has changed how casinos do business — Here’s where we’re at

When was the last time you went to a casino? If it was pre-COVID, you probably remember the crowds, the packed seats at slot machines and table games and a line for the buffet — all hallmarks of the casino experience. Since the start of the pandemic seven months ago, the casinos have transformed and we’ve been there to witness the evolution. We stood in lines wearing face coverings waiting for a temperature check; walked reconfigured gaming floors; saw new restaurants replace buffets and watched...

Elections 2020: In South L.A., Maxine Waters faces GOP challenger Joe Collins for 43rd Congressional seat

Four years into the Trump administration, voices of the GOP opposition reflect a revamped party convinced that Trump-era policies, principles and tone can make a dent — and even churn out winners in highly Democratic strongholds. The race for the 43rd Congressional District is no different. That’s where Republican Joe Collins III, a Navy veteran and South L.A. native, is running to oust Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Hawthorne, who is seeking a 16th term in Congress representing a district that stretches...

West Basin water board incumbent Don Dear faces questions of electioneering

Among the three candidates challenging longtime incumbent Don Dear for a seat on the West Basin Municipal Water District Board of Directors is a mechanic who until recently was camping in Dear’s backyard. George Louie Gutierrez has no visible campaign and hasn’t answered media questions about his candidacy — but his name is on the ballot, and that’s raising eyebrows among at least one other candidate for Dear’s seat. Hugo Rojas, the incumbent’s most formidable challenger, said he believes Dear s...

Rams’ Robert Woods revisits Buffalo and mixed memories

THOUSAND OAKS — To know how well he fits with the Rams, Robert Woods doesn’t have to look back any farther than last week. That’s when the Rams showed their appreciation by signing Woods to a new contract that makes him one of the NFL’s 10 best-paid wide receivers and keeps him with the team well into his 30s. But to really grasp how good he has it these days, he must look all the way back to Buffalo. That’s where Woods began his professional career, a multi-talented receiver, ballcarrier and ru...

Reject state-sanctioned discrimination, reject Proposition 16: Betty Chu

I am one of the first women of Chinese descent to pass the California bar exam. I was mayor of Monterey Park. I was the first Chinese-American woman to co-found and run a bank in the United States. In my lifetime, I have seen Asian Americans prevail against racism to be treated as fully American, as equal citizens, employees and leaders. This has occurred in large part because racism itself has become unacceptable in America. What a triumph! It pains me greatly, then, that after all this progres...

Did LA deputies shoot Dijon Kizzee in the back 20 times? There’s a lot we don’t know.
