So when the Blues beat the San Jose Sharks in Game 7 to earn their first berth in the Stanley Cup Final since 1970, a rematch with the Boston Bruins 49 years in the making, the two old friends couldn’t hold back. “We were like two 9-year-olds,” Jackson, 52, said. “We were hugging and jumping.

Southern California United Methodist congregations on the brink of schism over national church’s stance on homosexuality

  When Molly and Dawn Molt moved to Laguna Hills in 1993 the biggest challenge they faced was finding a church that would accept a lesbian couple and their child. “I called 11 churches and all of them rejected us,” Dawn Molt said. “Some said they’d accept our son, but not us.

And she found accepta...

Sharks’ Offseason Uncertain With Key Free Agents

SAN JOSE, Calif. — If Joe Thornton comes back for a 22nd season in the NHL, it would only be with the San Jose Sharks. Captain Joe Pavelski is confident he will get a deal done to stay with the franchise he joined as a draft pick back in 2003. The situation with the other major potential unrestricted free agent is far less certain. After Erik Karlsson’s injury-plagued first season in San Jose ended with him sitting at home with an injured groin during a Game 6 loss at St. Louis in the Western...
