Is a corporate tax hike in California too hot to handle?

Assembly Bill 71 is one of the year’s most contentious pieces of legislation — a hefty increase in corporate and personal income taxes to finance new efforts to end homelessness. Assemblywoman Luz Rivas, an Arleta Democrat, is carrying the bill with backing from dozens of left-of-center social service organizations. “Now is the time to take big, bold steps in addressing the number one policy issue Californians stress they want the Legislature to take action on,” Rivas said after the Assembly Rev...

Proposition 16 will bring back racial discrimination: Bob Huff

Here we go again. In 2014, while flexing their newly found two-thirds supermajority, the state Senate passed Senate Constitutional Amendment 5 (SCA5) and sent it to the Assembly for their vote. As Senate minority leader then, my wife Mei Mei and I were at the epicenter of the battle to defeat SCA5, working with thousands of concerned parents and students. We prevailed, but with a backdrop of a presidential election coupled with rampant health, economic, racial and social unrest, this year, the L...

What is time famine and how to avoid

Some days, our to-do lists feel more like trick candles: Huff and puff as we might to get everything done, our daily tasks just seem plain inextinguishable. Other days, two more chores seem to crop up in the time it takes to complete one, like some beastly Greek mythological joke that we’re the unfortunate, overwhelmed butt of. We’ve all been there. The feeling of having more to do than you have time to do it is a universal phenomenon. And it even has a name: time famine. What is time famine...

Watch this! Chino Hills High students singing solo, but ‘together,’ to inspire the world

A high school choir in San Bernardino County came together to sing – without being together. They performed a capella, each from their own home and each alone. But when the voices came together in a bit of video editing magic, their rendition of “Over the Rainbow” delivered a message of hope and resilience in the time of fear. And the video of the ballad sung by a Chino Hills High School choir struck a chord across the country and world, viewed on social media by more than two million people....

Jay Huff dominates as Virginia beats No. 7 Duke, 52-50

Jay Huff brought his flair for the dramatic to a completely new level, and brought down the program he grew up rooting for in his hometown. Virginia's 7-footer from Durham, North Carolina, with a career marked by a knack for highlight reel dunks and blocked shots, but not so much consistency, had his best game in three years Saturday, and capped it in dazzling fashion. After Mamadi Diakite made a short, go-ahead jumper with 37 seconds left, Huff blocked Vernon Carey Jr.'s shot under th...

Huff plays huge as Virginia beats No. 7 Duke, 52-50

Mamadi Diakite made a short, go-ahead jumper with 37 seconds left and Jay Huff blocked Vernon Carey Jr.'s shot under the basket with 3.7 remaining as Virginia ended a three-game home losing streak against No. 7 Duke with a 52-50 victory on Saturday. Huff led Virginia (21-7, 13-5 Atlantic Coast Conference) with 15 points, nine rebounds and 10 blocked shots, none bigger than when he rejected Carey's attempt from in close with the Cavaliers leading 51-50. Huff also ripped the ball away, w...

'Politically Correct, Progressive Bull—': Aubrey Huff Says Giants Excluded Him Due to His Support of Trump

The San Francisco Giants will be celebrating the 10-year anniversary of their winning the 2010 World Series with a reunion this summer, but one of the key players from the championship team won't be there. Former Giants first baseman Aubrey Huff was disinvited because of some tweets that the team's management decided were offensive and, he said, politically incorrect. Huff, now 43, led the Giants in home runs with 26 and in runs batted with 86 during their 2010 championship season.

Blues’ Jay Bouwmeester was saved thanks to practice, teamwork, swift action

IRVINE — St. Louis Blues players Vince Dunn and Alex Pietrangelo were the first to realize something was seriously wrong with teammate Jay Bouwmeester during a television timeout with 7:50 remaining in the first period of Tuesday’s game against the Ducks at Honda Center. Dunn and Pietrangelo began shouting and waving for help, as they have been coached to do. “Trainer,” they screamed.

San Francisco Giants’ former player Aubrey Huff criticises appointment of first female MLB coach Alyssa Nakken

The former San Francisco Giants player Aubrey Huff has criticised the team's move to hire the first full-time female coach in Major League Baseball history. Alyssa Nakken, a former softball player for Sacramento State who began working with the Giants in 2014, has been appointed to help with outfield work before games and to be a batting practice pitcher, alongside fellow coach Mark Hallberg. But Huff was not impressed, tweeting: “Couldn't imagine taking baseball instruction from an ex...

MY FAVORITE THINGS – 2019

2019 was a good balance between new music I discovered/enjoyed vs. old tunes I’m continually finding via records. I find that raising a teenager helps with the former and while I would never try to pass myself off – these days – as having a finger of the musical zeitgeist, I think it’s valuable to stay engaged with new music coming out. Anyways…I’m going to flip this from the round-ups of the last few years and start with the old tracks I gave heavy run to last year. (Not in ranked order) 1. The...

Soul Serenade: Teddy Pendergrass, “Love T.K.O.”

Have you seen the new Showtime documentary Teddy Pendergrass: If You Don’t Know Me? I recommend it with a bit of reservation related to some rather dubious accusations that are thrown around by people who may, or may not, be reliable. The documentary tells the tragic story of a star who rose from humble beginnings to the verge of superstardom only to be disabled in a terrible automobile accident. But the film’s most important message and the one that makes it worthwhile viewing is that Pendergra...

Soul Serenade: Harold Melvin And The Bluenotes, “If You Don’t Know Me By Now”

Alright, I admit it. There’s more Philly Soul covered in this column than music from any other soul capitol. There are a few reasons for that, the primary one being that when I was a kid in Atlantic City it was the music that the Philadelphia kids brought with them to the Jersey shore that made me love soul music in the first place. To this day, across all the years, it remains my favorite music. So this week I’m back with a Philly Soul record that was not only a huge hit but also represents all...
