Civil rights advocates, supervisors focus on accusations of harassment of shooting victims’ families

In October 2019, at a rally in front of Los Angeles’ Hall of Justice, Jaylene Rea spoke up for the first time about her brother’s fatal shooting by a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputy earlier that year. Later that evening, she was arrested — without probable cause, lawyers said — as she visited the memorial for her brother, 18-year-old Paul Rea. After being brought to the hospital for a few hours, during which her family was unaware of her whereabouts, she was kept overnight at the Sheriff’s s...

What I Read in April: Part 1

Time for another quick round-up of the books I've read and listened to lately. I finished 16 books in April, most of them audiobooks. Why so many books? I spent the month doing some major paper shredding and cleaning out a storage room. All that gave me hours of good listening time! Here is part 1 of what I read last month, in the order I finished each book (part 2 will go live on Thursday). Note that the following thoughts are also available on Goodreads.

Hear Joni Mitchell’s Earliest Recording, Rediscovered After More than 50 Years

How excited would you be to listen to a recording, made at an AM radio station in 1963, labeled “JONI ANDERSON AUDITION TAPE”? If you know much about the singer-songwriters of the mid-20th century, you’d be quite excited indeed. For Joni Anderson is none other than Joni Mitchell, who under that married name would go on to become one of the most influential solo performers to come out of the folk-music scene. Not that she prized the designation that thus accompanied her to stardom: “I was...

Ahead of Lakers’ 2-game set with Jazz, injuries seize the spotlight

In another season, an alternate universe where the world and the NBA are set in their normal rhythms, the weekend would be ushering in something special: a two-game series between the Lakers and the Utah Jazz, each with a legitimate chance to play for the Larry O’Brien trophy this summer. Those teams will still meet, on Saturday afternoon and Monday night, but the billing of two Western Conference contenders squaring off is significantly diminished by the players who won’t be suiting up. The Jaz...

Analysis: Baylor bullied Gonzaga to win national title

INDIANAPOLIS — The big, bad Baylor Bears bullied college basketball’s beautiful game into a corner. The bid for an undefeated season, one game short. A first-time national champion, crowned.

Baylor’s strengths shine in title-game blowout

You could have turned off the national championship after about three minutes and had a good idea how the game went. On Baylor’s first possession, Mark Vital missed a shot, got his own rebound, missed again, got his own rebound again – and eventually Davion Mitchell made a jumper. The next time the Bears had the ball, Vital got another offensive rebound, which led to another basket. Then Gonzaga’s Jalen Suggs turned the ball over with a charging foul, and Mitchell made a 3-pointer. If you looked...

Anything can happen in college basketball, including a brilliant show by the Bruins and Zags

One team represents a Jesuit university in Spokane, Wash. with an undergraduate population of not quite 6,000. The other represents a Baptist university in Waco, Tex., with almost 15,000 undergraduates. Gonzaga’s only national championship, in anything, was a boxing title it shared with Idaho in 1950. That was the same year Baylor went to its previous Final Four, back in the days when the NIT was at least the equal of the NCAA tournament. But then the Bears couldn’t be expected to make the Big D...

Baylor routs Houston to reach NCAA title game, awaits UCLA vs. Gonzaga

Redistricting? Voters can go online to shape their political future

It’s super important — and just as mysterious. Here’s everything you need to know about political redistricting. Should voters who live in a tiny slice of northern Orange County remain in California’s 38th congressional district, where 98% of district residents live in Los Angeles County? Or would the O.C. voters now in the 38th be better served if they were moved into one of the nearby House districts that are entirely within their home county? What about the voters who live in the bottom slive...

FAQ: What is political redistricting, how does it work, and why should you care?

You can go online to shape your political future. Here’s how.  The redrawing of political maps, known as redistricting, happens just once every 10 years, and for decades the process was shrouded in secrecy.

Here are answers to some common questions about redistricting in California. What is redistricting? Every 10 years, after the federal governme...

One of Johnny Juzang’s last high school basketball games at Harvard-Westlake High was against Santa Margarita High in the CIF Southern Section Division 1 semifinals. The Wolverines lost 50-45 that night in February 2019. Juzang scored 19 points, but so did Santa Margarita standout Jake Kyman, who was already signed to play for UCLA at the time. Little did they know that just a couple years later, they’d be teammates on a magical Final Four run. But not before Kyman went on to lead the Eagles to ...
