Could the Angels have Shohei Ohtani pitch more often in 2022?

ANAHEIM — Shohei Ohtani has delivered the Angels the quality of an ace, but don’t expect him to deliver the quantity. Manager Joe Maddon conceded on Tuesday that it’s probably not realistic to expect Ohtani to increase his workload next year so he pitches as frequently as a typical major-league starter.

“Bubble Watch” digs into trends that may indicate economic and/or housing market troubles ahead.

Take our survey: What makes up the Inland Empire?

The Inland Empire: To Southern Californians, whether they live in the IE or not, the term likely conjures up a distinct picture. But just like the picture might look different to each person, so might the boundaries of what the Inland Empire actually encompasses. All of Riverside and San Bernardino counties? Just portions? A few corners of other counties? There’s no official definition, so the Southern California News Group wants to know what people across the region think makes up the IE. Pleas...

Senior Living: Dentists chip away at uninsured problem by offering patients membership plans

By Phil Galewitz, Kaiser Health News Nevada dentist David White has seen diseased and rotted teeth in the mouths of patients who routinely put off checkups and avoided minor procedures such as fillings. While dental phobia is a factor, White said, the overriding reason people avoid treatment is cost. To help patients lacking dental insurance, White, in 2019, started offering a membership plan that looks much like an insurance policy — except it’s good only at his offices in Reno and Elko.

INDIANAPOLIS — Matthew Stafford had the Indianapolis Colts right where he wanted them, in a tie game with the Rams in need of the quarterback’s cool-headed leadership.
