Chargers coach Anthony Lynn isn’t new to creating impactful change

Alexander Zverev erases 2-set hole, will face Dominic Thiem in U.S. Open men’s final

NEW YORK (AP) -— For two full sets, Alexander Zverev was confused and listless, his body language as poor as his winner-to-error ratio against Pablo Carreño Busta in the U.S. Open men’s semifinals Friday. Zverev double-faulted and smacked his left high. He put a backhand into the net to cede the opening set and covered his face with both hands. He netted a forehand early in the next set, then turned a forlorn face toward his guest box and put his palms up. When he pushed a backhand long after 1 ...

Taylor Ward returns to Angels with a more consistent swing

Lakers’ Alex Caruso is sure of himself and his playoff role

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. >> Especially in the playoffs, LeBron James’ trust is not easily won. The 17-year veteran is known for controlling possessions with fanatical and sometimes possessive oversight, wanting to know for sure that a shooter will convert. So it seemed like quite a nod in Game 4 against the Houston Rockets when Alex Caruso, a 26-year-old making his first playoff run, got James’ dish for a corner three over James Harden. Caruso had missed his previous three attempts, but this one s...

How to help – or at least not hinder – firefighters as they battle wildfires and try to save homes

It’s not even the height of wildfire season, but resources are spread thin as firefighters battle multiple, massive fires around California, including some in our backyards. More than 20 million acres – a modern-day record – have burned in the state so far in 2020. And the worst, likely, is yet to come. While there often are summer wildfires, the state’s most destructive blazes typically occur in the fall. But the dry vegetation already prevalent in the region heightens the risk that fires will ...
