UCLA LB Mitchell Agude creating havoc for offenses

PASADENA — Mitchell Agude has proved to be a disruptive force for UCLA football early in the season, despite being told by doctors at a young age that he would never play sports following a skateboarding injury. “The doctors told my parents that I was going to be a vegetable my whole life,” Agude told the Southern California News Group in December 2019. “It was really severe. I don’t know what happened, but I woke up.” As an outside linebacker, Agude has opened the eyes of opposing offenses and ...

Coach Chip Kelly and No. 13 UCLA (2-0) have an opportunity to finish their 2021 nonconference slate with a third consecutive victory Saturday when the Bruins take on Fresno State at the Rose Bowl.

Churches win in fight against viral restrictions

It’s probably small consolation to the many thousands of ruined business owners and millions of other Californians whose lives have been damaged by COVID-19 restrictions, but it turns out that the government can be hit with penalties for COVID-19 violations, too. The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health will see $400,000 come out of its budget to pay the attorney fees of a church that defied provisions of the Health Officer Order that the U.S. Supreme Court has since held to be unconst...

How a workforce rent program aims to plug ‘missing middle’ housing gap

Imagine asking a landlord how much they want for rent and being told, it depends on how much you can afford. The rent, the landlord says, is based on your income, not the highest amount we can squeeze out of you in a tight rental market. A fantasy, you think. This couldn’t happen in California, which has some of the nation’s highest and fastest-growing rents. But it turns out programs to help middle-income tenants do exist. And they’re proliferating rapidly across the state. During the past 2 ½ ...

Pandemic throws LA Opera some curve balls, but the show must go on

It has been a long intermission for L.A. Opera, fraught with unforeseen bumps in the road due to the Pandemic, but the beat goes on with this Saturday’s gala opening of Verdi’s hummable, old warhorse, ”Il Trovatore,” at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion.
