Dodgers’ Mookie Betts day to day with finger injury

The finger Mookie Betts injured during an at-bat in Sunday’s game did not prevent him from hitting a home run in that at-bat. But it could keep him out of the lineup for a few days. Betts was not in the starting lineup Monday at San Diego due to the sore middle finger on his left hand and Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Betts’ status will be re-evaluated each day. “We’ll see how he responds to treatment,” Roberts said. The injury is considered “a soft-tissue injury” and X-rays taken after Sund...

If you want to help minorities and the poor, get government out of the way

More of the same can’t and won’t improve prospects for minorities and the poor in California. California is as Democratic as a state can be. Every policy discussion is dominated by those whose idea of helping the poor and minorities is to expand the role of government in society. Proposals can and do sail through the Legislature without even a single Republican or independent vote. California is the most extensively taxed state in the country, which, as a result of the political domination, has ...

On the Ground at the Portland Protests: A Secular Silent Night

The first sign that something was up came from my Lyft driver, Shawn. At O’Hare, I had seen little to confirm the stereotype beyond a guy doing yoga at the gate. On the flight, I saw mostly young families and middle-aged to older folks. And, even when we descended into Portland, I could see no billowing plumes of smoke, destroyed cop cars, or shattered storefronts, just the city’s picturesque setting in the Pacific Northwest, soaking up the sunlight on an ordinary Thursday.But Shawn, a black gen...

California unemployment: State legislators grill EDD officials about failures

California lawmakers grilled state labor officials on Thursday amid rising concerns about the government’s inability to pay unemployment claims that have soared amid widespread business shutdowns — and learned that decades-old technologies underpin the creaky payments system.

Caltrans has ideas other than spike strips to stop wrong-way drivers

Q. Honk: I suggest that spike strips be installed on freeway off-ramps so wrong-way drivers can’t enter them. This would be an inexpensive and effective solution to a very dangerous and deadly problem. I don’t buy the excuse that they would prevent emergency vehicles from using the off-ramps; they should not be going against traffic anyway. – Les Slifkin, Arcadia A. Wrong-way driving is rare – but when it does occur, it is often deadly. Over five years ending in 2018, Caltrans says 144 deaths an...

Local governments can crack down on pension spiking, California Supreme Court rules

In a widely anticipated ruling, the California Supreme Court said Thursday, July 30, that local governments can, indeed, crack down on “pension spiking” by public workers without running afoul of the law — but appeared to slam the door closed on broader, systemic reforms. The Deputy Sheriffs Association of Alameda County had argued that statewide pension reforms adopted in 2013 — forbidding such spiking — could not be applied to existing workers because local agreements blessing end-of-career pe...
