Anticipated LA Unified strike has some parents planning to pull their kids out of school

It was nearly 30 years ago when Yanina Nunez was a student during the last Los Angeles Unified School District strike. She was a third grader at Harbor Elementary School. Nunez remembers the nine-day strike in 1989 as chaotic. “They would send us from one class to another,” she said. “There wasn’t a lot of supervision, they would just cram us in the auditorium. We would just get there and do nothing.” Now a parent of two, Nunez doesn’t want her children to go through the same experience she did,...

Dodgers outlast Red Sox in World Series

  LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Exhausting and then exhilarating for the Los Angeles Dodgers.   Max Muncy's home run leading off the bottom of the 18th inning finally ended the longest World Series game in history early Saturday and gave Los Angeles a 3-2 victory over the Boston Red Sox that drew the Dodgers to 2-1 in the best-of-seven Series.   While the Dodgers mobbed Muncy at home plate, the Red Sox will rue one that got away.   They were oh-so-close in the 13th to taking a huge 3-0 lead. But secon...

Dodgers pitcher Rich Hill goes with his strengths, dominates in final home start of 2018

LOS ANGELES — This being the World Series, Rich Hill could not throw the first pitch of Game 4 until a television director gave home plate umpire Chad Fairchild the signal to begin. The actors stood frozen on stage – Hill on the mound, Austin Barnes behind home plate, Mookie Betts off to the side, all waiting for their cue. This allowed Dodger Stadium to hear two full verses, and two full choruses, of “Even Flow” by Pearl Jam, Hill’s familiar entrance song. The hard rock anthem thumped and thump...

Alexander: The Longest Night was wild, weird and, if you’re a Dodgers fan, wonderful

LOS ANGELES — Ours is, at the very least, the most convenient time zone on this continent. We can watch football from 9 or 10 in the morning, throughout the day and well into the night (of which the Pac-12 takes full advantage). And baseball postseason games normally — ormally — end before the kids have to go to bed. But it’s good that Friday wasn’t a school night. The youngsters, as well as the rest of us, were able to sit in on history. Whole World Series have been played in about as much time...

Whicker: Dodgers’ long day’s journey into night doesn’t remove memories of Walker Buehler’s World Series brilliance

LOS ANGELES — On the other side of midnight, Walker Buehler was rolling into record books, at 99 mph. On this side of midnight, or 7 hours and 20 minutes after Buehler threw the first pitch of Game 3, he was watching like everyone else. Why, he didn’t even pitch half the game. It took 18 innings, 561 pitches, and 11 more minutes than it took to play the entirety of the four-game 1939 World Series. Boston’s Nathan Eovaldi turned in a quality start, with six-plus innings, 97 pitches and three hits...

Whicker: Boston’s bats are mightier than Dodgers’ bullpen in World Series opener

BOSTON — Game 1 showed the Dodgers the nature of the beast. The Red Sox have lost twice in the postseason, lost only .333 percent of the time in the regular season. Few of those occasional victors spent as much time beating themselves as the Dodgers did Tuesday. A misplayed pop-up by David Freese and a familiar overfly of the cutoff man by Yasiel Puig helped Boston collect its first two runs. Two double plays that didn’t quite get turned set up the Red Sox for two more. The Dodgers left three me...

Whicker: Dodgers get little relief in World Series Game 1 loss

BOSTON — The Dodgers’ bullpen wasn’t supposed to match, much less surpass, the Brewers’ bullpen. It did. The Dodgers’ bullpen was supposed to be one of the few palpable edges the National League champions had over Boston. In Game One, it wasn’t. And so the Red Sox won their 116th game of 2018, riding their relievers and a three-run pinch-hit homer by Eduardo Nuñez to an 8-4 victory over the Dodgers in the World Series opener on Tuesday night. The blast came off Alex Wood, an erstwhile starter wh...

A disrupter from day one: How Kevin de León became the Democrat trying to topple Dianne Feinstein

By Laurel Rosenhall, CALmatters One morning at the end of August, with the capstone of his political career in the balance, state Sen. Kevin de León retreated to his Capitol office and turned on the TV. On the screen, colleagues who had known the Los Angeles Democrat for years debated his landmark bill to eliminate fossil fuels from California’s electrical system. The bill was big, attracting national attention. But it wasn’t going to pass, at least not on this vote, and no smart politician sets...
