USC, UCLA work together to get clarity on lifting of restrictions in L.A. County

An unprecedented situation called for an unusual maneuver. The athletic directors at USC and UCLA joined forces and held a joint Zoom call with Los Angeles County health officials Wednesday evening to clear a path for the football teams to begin practicing, according to sources familiar with the discussions. And it worked. “It was encouraging,” one source said. So encouraging that the teams are preparing to conduct full-squad practices once Pac-12 presidents approve that step, a move that could ...

State restrictions lifted for Pac-12 football teams in California, Oregon: The path back just got easier

Pac-12 football took a major step toward returning to play Wednesday as the governors of Oregon and California lifted the state restrictions preventing half the conference from conducting normal practices. If all goes well, the conference could restart its football season in late October or early November, bringing it into general alignment with the Big Ten, ACC, SEC and Big 12 during the season’s finishing stretch. The next step for the Pac-12 teams in California and Oregon — and it’s believed ...

Gov. Newsom: Nothing In State Guidelines Preventing Pac-12 From Resuming Football

SACRAMENTO (AP) — Any plans for the Pac-12 to join the Big Ten in returning to football are on hold due to health policies in two states within the conference. The Big Ten changed course Wednesday and said it will begin an eight-game football schedule on Oct. 23. The Pac-12 has also reconsidered starting its football season this fall, but does not have approval from state and local health officials in California and Oregon to conduct contact practices. Earlier this month, the Pac-12 announced a ...

Oregon Wildfires Are So Devastating They’ve Brought in a Mobile Morgue

The wildfires engulfing the West Coast have become so dire in Oregon that state police have established a new type of emergency response: a mobile morgue. The state-run facility in Linn County, about two hours outside of Portland, will be operated by a 75-member regional response team that is searching incinerated properties for survivors and victims. While the wildfires have hit 10 states across the country, Oregon has been among the worst affected, with more than 30 active fires, at least 900,...

Search For 22 People Missing In Western Wildfires Too Dangerous

(CNN) — The huge wildfires torching much of three states have already claimed 36 lives. Now, friends and families worry about 22 people missing as infernos in rural Oregon make it too dangerous to search for them. Scott Fogarty has no idea what happened to his longtime friend George Atiyeh. But he knows what happened to Atiyeh’s property. “His home was completely lost, and his shop,” Fogarty said, holding onto hope as well as photos of his friend. But up and down the West Coast, more lives and h...

Oregon governor confirms 10 fire deaths in a week

"It feels like a cruel twist of fate that many communities suffering from COVID or flooding earlier this year face even more hardship," said Oregon Governor Kate Brown. Incendiary conditions gave way over the weekend to cooler, moister weather and calmer winds, enabling weary firefighters to gain ground in efforts to outflank blazes that had burned largely unchecked last week. But fire managers cautioned that the battle was hardly over. Thunderstorms forecast for lat...

Dems Rip Trump For Blaming West Coast Wildfires On Lack Of ‘Forest Management’

Prominent Democrats on the West Coast on Sunday took aim at President Trump a day after he told rallygoers in Minden, Nevada that the wildfires raging in the region can be blamed on lack of “forest management.” “It is about forest management. Please remember the words, very simply: forest management. Please remember, about forest management, and other things,” Trump said on Saturday, as he continues dismissing climate change as a cause behind the wildfires that are burning across several Weste...

Tucker Carlson Calls Climate Change ‘Systemic Racism in the Sky’

In a segment on the raging West Coast wildfires, Fox News host Tucker Carlson tried to make the baffling argument that Democratic leaders’ warnings about climate change are “like systemic racism in the sky.” He extended the bizarre metaphor, lamenting that there was supposedly no explanation for how climate change causes more wildfires (there is!) and mocking Democrats for not explaining science to him: “You can’t see it, but rest assured, it’s everywhere, and it’s deadly. Like systemic racism, ...
