St. John Bosco basketball going back to regional finals after victory over Harvard-Westlake

BELLFLOWER — St. John Bosco ran into a buzz saw at the start of its CIF Southern California Regional boys basketball semifinal Thursday night. Harvard-Westlake made eight of its first 10 shots, five of them behind the 3-point arc, and the Braves found themselves 15 points down before they’d barely broken a sweat. It was all Bosco the rest of the way, as an exceptional defensive effort and Lamaj Lewis’ ability to draw fouls while driving to the basket sent the home team to a comfortable 65-56 Div...

Court again leaves Affordable Care Act in place

This article was updated on June 17 at 5:16 p.m. In a much-anticipated decision, the Supreme Court on Thursday rejected another effort to dismantle the Affordable Care Act, the health care reform law often regarded as the signature legislative achievement of former President Barack Obama. The justices did not reach the main issue in the case: whether the entirety of the ACA was rendered unconstitutional when Congress eliminated the penalty for failing to obtain health insurance. Instead, by a v...

Father’s Day dining in the San Fernando Valley

I used to believe that Father’s Day was something of a runner-up holiday, a consolation prize awarded to fathers after the gala celebration of Mother’s Day, with its flowers and candy and chocolates and brunch. A day given to fathers, somewhat begrudgingly, when they’re given the honor of standing over the Weber burning steaks, chicken and fish, until they’re finally released from toil, and allowed to collapse on the couch and watch a Dodgers game in peace, with a cold one in hand. And boy, was ...

King boys basketball team beats Burbank, advances to first CIF-SS title game since 2014

RIVERSIDE – Unicorns aren’t real, but Jaden Winfield produced a little bit of magic on Friday night.

That’s a rare thing.” A senior transfer f...

Missing in the mountains: 4 families ache for those lost

In the four years since David O’Sullivan went missing in the San Jacinto Mountains, several other missing-persons cases have intertwined with his and one another’s. The same group of volunteers who have been searching for O’Sulivan’s remains have gotten involved in at least three other local cases.

Who’s looking for David O’Sullivan? At first, almost no one

When David O’Sullivan was reported missing in the San Jacinto Mountains in 2017, his mother in Ireland thought the whole of California would be out there searching for her son. In reality, hardly anyone was. O’Sullivan, 25, had come to the United States in March to hike the Pacific Crest Trail, a 2,650-mile route from the southern border with Mexico to the northern border with Canada. But he made it only about 180 miles, to the Riverside County town of Idyllwild, before disappearing in early Apr...

The mysterious disappearance of Pacific Crest Trail hiker David O’Sullivan

This is the last thing anyone knows for absolute certain about David O’Sullivan: On the morning of April 7, 2017, the 25-year-old from Ireland checked out of a motel in the snowy mountain town of Idyllwild. Sixteen days earlier, he’d set out hiking from the Mexican border. Nature and his own inexperience had made the 180 miles he’d covered, through deserts and up and down mountains, challenging. In one of the last messages he would ever send, he told a friend that he was getting things sorted ou...
