Vietnamese American felon facing deportation gets backing from activists, elected leaders

Tin Nguyen arrived from Vietnam as a boy, in 1979, with hope for a better future in a new country. But his refugee story took a bad turn. As the only Vietnamese kid in his grade school classes, he was bullied. As a teen, he joined gangs and, as an adult, he committed crimes. Nguyen ended up doing 20 years for murder and robbery. But Nguyen turned his life around in prison. And, last year, after his sentence was commuted, he was given a chance at freedom. That’s when he was picked up for deportat...

As the Bobcat fire burned for its 11th day — consuming more than 44,000 acres across the Angeles National Forest while dozens of other fires raged across the western swath of the country — fire crews were stretched too thin to be able assess potential damage to beloved landmark sites in the Monrovia foothills and the Angeles National Forest.

Hoornstra: ‘What even are positions anyway?’ The answer is complicated

The Dodgers and Padres played a stirring three-game series this week. First place in the National League West hung in the balance. On Tuesday, Fernando Tatís Jr. hit a screaming line drive up the middle to begin the sixth inning at Petco Park. Rather than giving the Padres a runner on base, Tatís gave Dodgers second baseman Chris Taylor a sheepish grin. Taylor was positioned perfectly to catch the ball on the fly. It was just another moment at the vanguard of a league-wide trend the Dodgers are ...

Investigation: Gymnasts, parents recount abuse by coaches at Azarian Gymnastics

The sleepless nights were interrupted only by nightmares. “I couldn’t sleep at night I was so scared of Vanessa,” said gymnast Ashton Woodbury, referring to Vanessa Gonzalez, her former coach at Azarian U.S. Gymnastics Training Center, a world renown Orange County club. It was the balance beam that Woodbury dreaded most. It was on the beam where Gonzalez, gymnasts said, left her mark. “I had a mental block on the beam,” Woodbury said. “And Vanessa on the beam she would smack you (on your legs) i...

Buena Park mayor calls on Newsom to reopen Knott’s Berry Farm

The six-month closure of Knott’s Berry Farm has been “devastating” for the Buena Park theme park and a “disaster” for the city that depends on the 100-year-old institution to drive spending at area hotels, restaurants and businesses, according to Buena Park mayor Fred Smith. “Tourism is a big part of Buena Park’s economy,” Smith said during a press conference across from Disneyland. “Knott’s Berry Farm is the largest employer in our city.

Coronavirus: Gavin Newsom says California has no restrictions preventing Pac-12 football’s restart

Governor Gavin Newsom on Wednesday said there is nothing in the California guidance to prevent Pac-12 teams from playing, a statement that seemingly contradicts his own rules. “There is nothing in the state guidelines that denies the Pac-12 from having conference games,” Newsom said in response to a question from the Bay Area News Group. “There is nothing that denies the games from occurring.” Newsom said he spoke this morning with Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott. “I want to make this crystal cl...

The postseason is very familiar territory for a Dodgers team that has played 66 postseason games over the past seven seasons. But this October will offer a very different environment.

No fans in stadiums will minimize any home-field advantage anyway. MLB commissioner Ro...

But it met with immediate pushback from the sheriff, who said it was his office’s authority alone to control that population, and that it has fallen as low as it can go. The new council will oversee efforts to “safely reduce the rate of incarceration in Los Angeles County,” to align it with the county’s Care Fir...
