Chelsea Gray, Sparks will miss Jantel Lavender, whose departure opens up some possibilities

LOS ANGELES — For Chelsea Gray, the All-Star point guard who returned to L.A. just days ago from playing in Turkey, her fifth WNBA season is going to take some extra getting used to. There’s a new coach, a new staff, she’s the last one to arrive to camp following her commitments abroad and, for her first time with the Sparks, there’s no Jantel Lavender — the Mike to her Ike, said Gray in a nod to those chewy fruit-flavored candies. On Monday, the Sparks traded Lavender, the center whose entire e...

Why have Southern California horses dominated the Kentucky Derby?

Auto-Mattic Transmission: Rapper Mattic Dispatches from the Left Field

None He flirted with the possibility of success back in 2004, when his rap group, The Others released their debut, Past Futuristic, an album of creamy, slick funk and well-oiled hip-hop grooves. It should have been the breakthrough it promised to be, the album a collection of contender-worthy numbers for the finicky music market. But cursed with indie-label limitations and nearly no press, the band dissolved just shortly before they could release more material for an already recorded full-lengt...
