Whicker: Kevin Rooney’s first year off the sidelines has been as strange as all of ours

There is never enough time, until there is too much. Kevin Rooney did not plan to retire when he did. For 40 years he coached Notre Dame High in Sherman Oaks, and he won four Southern Section titles. His players were asked to make good grades, play hard, behave themselves and speak with a civil tongue. Rooney’s strongest epithet was “God bless America!” “People would ask me about retirement,” Rooney said. “I’d say, ‘What would I do that for? I don’t hunt, fish or play golf.’ “I was enjoying what...

Marsha Hunt shares spotlight with charity

“I may have disappeared from the limelight in the 1950s, but I didn’t disappear from life. I think I made a difference.” – Marsha Hunt. On her 90th birthday in 2007, Marsha Hunt promised to live to be 100, if that’s how long it would take for her greatest idea, Thankful Giving, to become a Thanksgiving Day tradition in this country.

Hollywood’s haunting stories fuel Instagram star Carla Valderrama’s new book

Like countless hopefuls before her, Carla Valderrama headed to Hollywood fueled by a dream, only to crash headlong into reality upon arrival.

She survived through odd jobs and acting classes, auditions and the friendship of those she met through improv comedy work at the Upright Citizens Brigade. Marie Callender’s Whole Pie-To-Go Sale con...

Southern California politicians weigh in: Was the 2020 election fair?

“DEAD PEOPLE VOTED” They didn’t, actually, but outgoing President Donald Trump tweeted that anyway, two weeks after an election in which he received nearly 6 million fewer votes than his opponent, President-elect Joe Biden. His declaration – an evidence-free claim that was flagged by Twitter as misleading – was just one of many salvos fired in the electoral faceoff he and others have waged since voting ended on Nov. 3. The sides are well known: Trump and many of his supporters insist the 2020 el...

How James Beard came to define good taste and fine dining in ‘Man Who Ate Too Much’

By Richard Cytowic On a picnic in Southwest France with Alice B.
