Dennis Moore helps put Santa Anita on the right track

Santa Anita track superintendent Dennis Moore is 71. He says he wants to start slowing down, and his wife of 51 years, Chris, is constantly urging him to do so. “But I keep telling her that’s why we’ve been married for 51 years, because I haven’t been home that much,” he joked during a 25-minute phone interview with the Southern California News Group this week. “She wouldn’t have been able to put up with me otherwise.” Moore’s work day starts at 5:30 a.m. and ends somewhere around 6:30 p.m. That...

Trump paints apocalyptic portrait of life in US under Biden

By DARLENE SUPERVILLE | Associated Press WASHINGTON — The suburbs wouldn’t be the suburbs anymore, the economy would sink into its worst depression ever and police departments would cease to exist.

This is the apocalyptic version of American life that President Donald Trump argues would be the dire consequence of turning over the White House to Democrat Joe Biden. “He’ll bury you ...

Whicker: Dodgers’ Justin Turner forgot he was part of a larger community

No one deserved to sit dead center and front row, in the championship picture, like Justin Turner did. He was job-hunting in 2014, trying to shake his Quadruple-A identity, and he ran into Tim Wallach, then a Dodgers coach at Cal State Fullerton’s intrasquad game. Day by day he became the Dodgers’ leader and mentor. Month by month a clubhouse of individualists became tighter, younger, more committed and more studious. Along the way, the third baseman made himself an All-Star and an MVP vote coll...

Magnificent African songbird turning heads, invading nests, in Southern California

In mating season, the male pin-tailed whydah’s tail can grow to three times its body length, giving it one of the most striking appearances of any wild bird in Southern California.

The female lays its eggs in the nests of other bird species, leaving it to the foster parents to try to feed two sets of hatchlings. The sole identified host species in Southern California is the scaly-breasted munia, itself...
