A Southern California writer’s fear of earthquakes fuels ‘Aftershocks’

Novelist Marisa Reichardt has spent her life in Southern California. She grew up in San Diego, moved to Los Angeles in 1995 to attend graduate school at USC and currently lives in Hermosa Beach. Like other lifelong Californians, she’s lived with the threat of an earthquake — The Big One — looming in the background. “There’s this idea that we sort of survive by not thinking about it,” she says by phone from her home (before the late-night 4.6 quake on Sept. 18), “But not thinking about it isn’t d...

Pac-12 football will be back this fall, but the specifics remain a mystery

Pac-12 football in 2020 remains on hold, at least officially. The university presidents and chancellors did not vote Friday on a return to competition but are expected to reconvene in coming days. “The Pac-12 CEO Group had an informative and productive meeting earlier today,” the conference said Friday evening. “We plan to reconvene this coming Thursday, September 24 to make a decision regarding possible return to play prior to January 1. “The health and safety of our student-athletes and all th...

Rams and Robert Woods complete 4-year, $65 million extension

THOUSAND OAKS — Robert Woods can continue to be on the receiving end of superlatives for the Rams for at least six more seasons. The only good thing you can’t call him anymore is the Rams’ biggest bargain. Woods, the versatile and reliable wide receiver from Serra High (Gardena) and USC, agreed Friday to a four-year contract extension that could be worth up to $68 million. That makes Woods the 10th-highest-paid NFL wide receiver in terms of total contract value and average per year ($16.25 milli...

Rams, receiver Robert Woods close to ‘elite’ contract extension

THOUSAND OAKS — Robert Woods said he was happy to see fellow wide receiver Cooper Kupp sign a rich contract extension with the Rams last week. But there was a catch. It made Woods, the Rams’ most underpaid player, even more eager to work out a new deal of his own. Thursday, the player and the team sounded close to getting that done. Woods, the former Serra High (Gardena) and USC star, said he hopes to sign an extension as early as Friday, or at least before the Rams (1-0) play their second game ...

There are only 6 billionaires in Hollywood — here's how they became so much richer than other celebrities

USC, UCLA work together to get clarity on lifting of restrictions in L.A. County

An unprecedented situation called for an unusual maneuver. The athletic directors at USC and UCLA joined forces and held a joint Zoom call with Los Angeles County health officials Wednesday evening to clear a path for the football teams to begin practicing, according to sources familiar with the discussions. And it worked. “It was encouraging,” one source said. So encouraging that the teams are preparing to conduct full-squad practices once Pac-12 presidents approve that step, a move that could ...

State restrictions lifted for Pac-12 football teams in California, Oregon: The path back just got easier

Pac-12 football took a major step toward returning to play Wednesday as the governors of Oregon and California lifted the state restrictions preventing half the conference from conducting normal practices. If all goes well, the conference could restart its football season in late October or early November, bringing it into general alignment with the Big Ten, ACC, SEC and Big 12 during the season’s finishing stretch.

Dodgers gathering ‘information’ for potential postseason pitching strategy

When MLB announced a postseason format Tuesday that includes no off days during the first three rounds (only between rounds), the standard analysis pointed to teams like the Dodgers having an advantage because they could fill out a full five-man rotation with capable starting pitchers. So a day later, the Dodgers started reliever Brusdar Graterol for the second time in four days, moving starter Dustin May into a ‘bulk’ relief role. “There’s a lot of different layers and it’s a longer conversatio...

Coronavirus: Gavin Newsom says California has no restrictions preventing Pac-12 football’s restart

Remembering the blurry, brilliant career of Dwight Anderson

Dwight Anderson was a flesh-and-blood video game. He averaged 38 points at Roth High in Dayton, Ohio, and his games became too big for the gym. Isiah Thomas called him “Michael Jordan before Michael Jordan.” But when Anderson sought quiet time, he played Pong, the amazing breakthrough of the late 70s, a leisurely antique today. Like Anderson, it was an original. “Dwight had a tutor whom he loved,” said Stan Morrison, the USC coach at the time. “If he did what he was supposed to do, she’d let him...
