With South Bay Lakers, NBA vet Spencer Hawes wants to prove he won’t quit

During his one campaign with the Clippers four years ago, Spencer Hawes found the place that he now calls his second home: the South Bay. The 7-foot-1 center and Seattle native was smitten with the sunshine and laid back vibe – enough so that he bought a multimillion-dollar property in Manhattan Beach. It’s tempting to imagine the cushy transition for Hawes, who has been working out in Seattle since he last played NBA ball in 2017, returning to his posh beach house in Southern California as he e...

Where to go in Portugal

Reasons to visit Portugal are innumerable. Some are obvious, like the world-class wines sold at local groceries for little more than the cost of a tram ticket in Lisbon; others are lesser-known, like the country’s wealth of stunning libraries and the places in Porto and Coimbra that inspired details in Harry Potter. It’s hard to go wrong in one of the safest, oldest, and most scenic countries in Europe, but certain travelers are undoubtedly better suited to certain spots. Here are the top pla...

Gov. Gavin Newsom’s death penalty moratorium lauded and lambasted

As workers dismantled California’s apple-green execution chamber Wednesday, Gov. Gavin Newsom’s death penalty moratorium was criticized as a slap in the face to voters and praised as a strike for humanity. Newsom’s executive order, blocking execution for 737 prisoners on death row at San Quentin State Prison, came just as efforts to hasten executions were beginning to pick up steam in the aftermath of a 2016 ballot measure approved by voters. There has not been an execution in the state since 20...

Gov. Gavin Newsom to halt death penalty despite voter efforts to hasten executions

Gov. Gavin Newsom will sign an executive order Wednesday placing a moratorium on the death penalty for all 737 inmates on California’s death row, ensuring that no executions will take place while he is governor, an administration source has confirmed. Newsom’s order also will withdraw the state’s lethal injection protocol and immediately close the execution chamber at San Quentin State Prison. The action, however, leaves intact all convictions and sentences, and does not provide for the release ...

Senior Living: Families facing early Alzheimer’s disease are not alone

By David W. Hart, Ph.D. Contributing writer One of the questions that I receive most frequently goes something like this: why are there so many more people being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and other dementias today compared to two or three generations ago? The simple answer is that more of us are living longer today than ever before and age is the number one risk factor for developing dementia. In fact, about 40 percent of individuals over the age of 80 have some form of cognitive ...

Taco Bell will begin serving Steak Rattlesnake Fries on Feb. 28

Taco Bell diners can expect some bite from Steak Rattlesnake Fries, which debut nationwide Feb. 28. That’s due to one of the toppings, pickled jalapeños, according to product development manager Rene Pisciotti, product development manager. “It’s a little bit of an eating adventure, a gamble if you will, because our jalapeños are a little bit like shishitos. You’re not sure if one’s going to be really spicy or not,” he said in late January at the fast food chain’s test kitchen in Irvine. The dish...

Maxine Waters and Ted Lieu, two President Trump’s most vocal critics, and the nation’s deeply divided political environment.

Billions pile up in special district accounts while critics say many should dissolve

California’s most affluent special districts nearly doubled their spending over the course of a decade, while the value of their cash and investments nearly tripled, according to a Southern California News Group analysis of state data. The figures revive the question many good-government advocates have been asking for decades: Do special districts, which operate largely under the public radar, simply have too much money? Critics say they do, and argue that their functions should be absorbed into...

Dennis McCarthy: ‘Tool Box Killer’ Lawrence Bittaker got the death penalty nearly 40 years ago. But old age will take him in the end

A promise was made 38 years ago to the families of five teenage girls in the South Bay and San Fernando Valley who had been kidnapped, raped, tortured, and murdered by a monster.

Four of his five victims never saw their 17th birthday. One had just turned 18. The girls never had...

Q. I am a 70-year old reader of your column in the Orange County Register.
