Ducks coach Dallas Eakins reconnects with his family during coronavirus outbreak

Days are the same, but very, very different for Dallas Eakins in the age of the coronavirus pandemic. He’s up early in the morning, as usual, organizing his day and getting his instructions from his boss. He drinks a cup of coffee and spends quality time with his daughters as they prepare for school. Instead of heading to Honda Center or Great Park Ice, his usual routine, he takes a detour. He doesn’t go anywhere. Eakins, the Ducks’ coach, remains at home with his wife, Ingrid, and their daughte...

Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf cooped up at home during coronavirus pandemic

Ryan Getzlaf said he spent three days this week building a chicken coop in his backyard. Off-ice workouts? Well, that’s a new one.

But a chicken coop? Seriously? Yes. Apparently, the Getzlaf household was out of eggs earlier...

Intrusions on our liberties cannot end soon enough

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti had a message for people who gathered in groups over the weekend at beaches and parks. “We know who you are,” he said. What? What does that mean? Is the city conducting surveillance of residents by capturing the location data from cell phones? Is the mayor demanding records from phone companies? On March 12, my own cell phone received a text informing me that Mayor Garcetti “shared updates about the City’s actions to help protect the public and slow the spread of ...
