Whicker: Pacquiao still good enough to win decisively over Broner

LAS VEGAS — Manny Pacquiao returned to the MGM Grand on Saturday, like all the box-office sensations do. He sold out the Grand Garden Arena, putting 13,029 into the joint. They were Filipinos and nostalgia buffs and just plain boxing fans, most of whom can tell a legend from an alphabet champion. All of them invested more in this WBA welterweight title fight than Adrien Broner did. For some reason people keep paying Broner big bucks to walk around a ring and preen and posture. They also watch hi...

Charter schools were once LAUSD’s ‘incubators.’ Now, they’re the competition.

While tens of thousands Los Angeles Unified School District teachers marched through Grand Park on Friday, two miles away, students inside small red and white bungalows kept working. It was a normal day for the Alliance Dr. Olga Mohan High School, a charter school that’s nestled under a tangle of freeways in downtown Los Angeles. Charter schools like Alliance aren’t part of LAUSD. Though the district approved its charter in 2004, it operates with its own board. So students have largely been insu...

Recipe: On a keto diet? Try making this portobello mushroom pizza

January seems like the unofficial go-on-a-diet month. For many that means embracing a trendy keto-compliant regime, a high-protein low-carb eating plan that many assume implies “meat-heavy” menus. A new cookbook, “The Essential Vegetarian Keto Cookbook” from the editors at Rodale Books (Rodale Books, $14.99), offers a strategy for vegetarians to embrace the eating plan. A keto diet requires creativity when making classic comfort foods. Portobello mushrooms can be a replacement for the bread in p...

President Trump is planning to make a new offer Saturday to Democrats aimed at ending the 29-day partial government shutdown that would extend deportation protections for some immigrants in exchange for $5.7 billion in border wall funding, according to Republican officials. The president’s proposal, which he is expected to announce at the White House at 4 p.m., is designed to ramp up pressure on Democrats by offering a reprieve on his attempts to end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)...

HOA Homefront: What makes a director outstanding? Attitude

A community association is no better than the board of directors which leads it, and excellent associations require excellent volunteer leaders. Truly exceptional volunteer governance is not a happy accident, and it often has little to do with a volunteer’s background, training, and experience. Instead, it is the result of hard work and the pursuit of proper values, foundational understandings, and perspectives. This week launches a four-part series regarding what makes (or should make) a volunt...

Allen Buchanan: A primer on operating expenses in commercial real estate

Generally, January is the time of year when your landlord will present you with an invoice for expenses – in addition to your base rent. This assumes, of course, that you lease your business’ home. However, if you own your business home, take heed, as you may be able to take a few more dollars from your left pocket and move them into your right pocket by asking your occupant to pay for some stuff. This column is designed as a primer for these expenses. Let’s define a couple of key terms – shall ...

New Year? A new budget could help you save for that trip to Hawaii

Many of us made New Year’s resolutions this month. Often these resolutions include losing weight, incorporating a healthier lifestyle, or eliminating a daily trip to Starbucks. Have you considered implementing a monthly budget as a resolution? Budgeting is a concept you may not want to think about, much less use. To some people, the word itself brings thoughts of personal conflict, restriction, and thriftiness. Often these emotions are not well received. Once the concept is embraced, “budgeting”...

Sometimes, it is difficult to stay in your lane

Q. I am a retired firefighter of 34 years, and for 25 of those years I was on a paramedic unit and drove lights-and-siren as much or more than anyone at the time. I consider myself a cautious driver. On Christmas day we were driving down to San Diego on the I-5 Freeway. It was about 10:30 a.m. and raining. We were just passing where Highway 1 intersects the I-5, and the freeway lanes disappeared. The road in that area has the current striping; the old striping that Caltrans removed, but with the...

LAUSD’s student decathletes wait and worry while teachers’ strike chips away at their chance to compete

“Today’s lesson is social activism and participatory democracy,” Heather Wilson, AP English and 9th Grade Honors English teacher at Bell High School, told her Academic Decathlon team this week as the LAUSD teachers strike trudged on. The labor dispute left students without their regular curriculum — and also shut down most of the clubs and extracurricular activities they look forward to. The Academic Decathlon, among the most anticipated annual events for student scholars, is just around the cor...

Whicker: Age is just a number for Mickelson. So is 16-under-par for 36 holes

LA QUINTA — Phil Mickelson left the pin in the cup Friday, at the fourth hole on the Nicklaus Tournament Course. You can putt that way now, thanks to a significant rewriting of The Rules Of Golf. He might not do it again. He missed the birdie putt. Then he birdied the next three holes. “That felt very uncomfortable,” Mickelson said. “I sort of eased into it, thinking I might hit the pin and miss the putt. “I don’t know the new rules well enough and I haven’t had a chance to get a seminar.

Injured whale euthanized after washing ashore at Zuma Beach

MALIBU — An injured pygmy sperm whale who washed ashore at Zuma Beach in Malibu Friday was euthanized, authorities said. The whale was spotted at the shoreline about 7:45 a.m., according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department.
