Special election: Seven candidates vying for L.A.-area state Senate seat

After winning a seat on the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors in November, Supervisor Holly Mitchell left the state Senate, and on Tuesday, seven candidates were vying to be her successor to represent the 30th Senate District. The crowded field will be whittled down to just the top two candidates during a special election on Tuesday, March 2 — that is, unless one candidate can get a majority of votes and win the contest outright. If no one gets a majority, then top two contenders will go h...

Alexander: The state of SoCal sports – ranking the top teams and franchises

Under normal circumstances – normal being when fans were allowed to attend sports events in large numbers and phrases such as “super-spreader” and “pandemic” and “COVID-19 protocols” weren’t part of our everyday language – our exercise in ranking Southern California’s major teams and franchises would come down to a simple question: If your favorite team won a championship, how many people would show up at the parade? We’re still a long way from testing that theory. We have champions, but we have...

LAUSD parents want special ed teachers – especially those eligible for vaccines – back on campus

In the ongoing debate over how soon educators should return to in-person work, some Los Angeles Unified parents are fuming over the revelation that certain employees who work with special education students have been eligible for COVID-19 vaccinations since January but have yet to provide in-person services to some of the district’s most vulnerable students. Generally speaking, those who work in schools won’t have access to the vaccines until next week under L.A. County’s priority system, but so...

Alexander: Rams cut their losses quickly and decisively in swap of QBs

You can’t say the Rams don’t move swiftly and decisively. As for effectively? We’ll see. Two summers ago, coming off a Super Bowl appearance – albeit an offensively flaccid one against the Patriots – they gave Jared Goff a huge contract extension, four years, $134 million all told and a little over $110 million of that guaranteed. Saturday night, having judged that the offense under Goff likely wasn’t going to get appreciably better, they cut their losses. Goff, plus a third-round pick in 2021 a...
