26th horse dies at Santa Anita since December, third in 10 days

ARCADIA — Santa Anita, which had gone 46 days since a catastrophic horse injury, suffered its third fatality in the past 10 days Sunday and 26th since Dec. 26 when Kochees, a 9-year-old gelding injured in Saturday’s sixth race, had to be euthanized when he could not be saved by surgery. The injury to his left front leg, which occurred during a $10,000 claiming race, was not a compound fracture, meaning surgery was an option that would have ended his career but prolonged his life. He was vanned o...

Countries to watch as divided Europe chooses its parliament

BRUSSELS — As voters in all 28 European Union countries elect a new shared parliament, here are some key races to watch in the battle to fill the 751 seats in the European Parliament: ITALY Italy’s anti-migrant, anti-Islam interior minister, Matteo Salvini, has been campaigning hard to boost his right-wing League party to become the No. 1 party in Italy and possibly Europe. Salvini has been using his hard-line credentials to expand a parliamentary group of European populists that already inclu...

Murray Gell-Mann, physicist who peered at particles and saw the universe, dies at 89

Murray Gell-Mann, who transformed physics with his preternatural ability to find hidden patterns among the tiny particles that make up the universe, earning a Nobel Prize, died on Friday at his home in Santa Fe, New Mexico. He was 89. Jenna Marshall, a spokeswoman for the Santa Fe Institute, where he held the title of distinguished fellow, announced his death. Much as atoms can be slotted into the rows and columns of the periodic table of the elements, Gell-Mann found a way, in 1961, to classify...

Southern California United Methodist congregations on the brink of schism over national church’s stance on homosexuality

  When Molly and Dawn Molt moved to Laguna Hills in 1993 the biggest challenge they faced was finding a church that would accept a lesbian couple and their child. “I called 11 churches and all of them rejected us,” Dawn Molt said. “Some said they’d accept our son, but not us. But, we wanted a church that would take our whole family, not one that would tell our child his parents were going to hell.” Laguna Beach United Methodist Church was the 12th phone number Molt called. And she found accepta...

Analysis: What the new Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge means for Disneyland, Anaheim and the greater Disney universe

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge places the Walt Disney Company at a high-stakes Sabacc table surrounded by alien gamblers in a disreputable cantina where the entertainment conglomerate is about to make a $1 billion bet that intergalactic travelers are desperate to step foot into a Star Wars spaceport on the outer rim of the galaxy. That might seem like an awful lot of galactic credits to push into the pot in this winner-take-all Star Wars game. But chances are Disney’s big bet is a sure thing and the o...

Memorial Day: The only Coast Guard sailor to receive the Medal of Honor

Dauntless devotion In the 228-year history of the U.S. Coast Guard, only one sailor received the Medal of Honor. Today we remember that 22-year-old who gave his life for his country. Today’s Coast Guard routinely rescues people, but in 1942 its role of transporting Marines in heavy gunfire was instrumental in the World War II effort. The spirit and sacrifice of one Coast Guard signalman in charge of landing craft was so appreciated by the Marine Corps that for a while, Marines who greeted Coas...

At the Repair Cafe, tinkerers fix bikes, clocks and toasters – practicing the ‘reuse and recycle’ model

The zipper on a man’s polyester pant won’t zip. An decorative clock lost its tick-tock The blades of a window fan stopped turning. In today’s consumer economy, the solution is simple. Just throw these things away and buy new ones. But the Repair Cafe doesn’t operate within our shop-til-your-drop mindset. Instead, volunteers at this Pasadena institution coalesced on Saturday under the principal that fixing things is better for the Earth than throwing them away — or buying new things. Megan Kn...

The 10 best songs from New Kids on the Block’s MixTape Tour

After witnessing what New Kids on the Block did with their last big outing — 2017’s Total Package Tour with Boyz II Men and Paula Abdul, which sold out the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles — it was difficult to imagine what the quintet would be able to do to top themselves. New Kids on the Block, whose heyday was in the late ’80s and very early ’90s, have certainly tapped into nostalgia since reuniting and heading out on these massive tours and selling out concert cruises. But unlike a lot of acts ...

Whicker: Izaac Colunga, boxing prospect turned shooting victim, begins the long trip home

WOODCREST — Until Izaac Colunga can take his own small steps, his family will try to celebrate theirs. The other day he told his dad Rene that his back “felt tired.” That was a step, because he felt something. His mother Carrie scratched his arm and he felt that, too. That put a spring in her step. The family and the friends and the folks at Robert Garcia’s boxing gym have been waiting for Colunga to feel something since March 3, when the bullets began flying into the house on Niedever Avenue on...

Whicker: The Fregosi name is well-represented at Orange Coast

COSTA MESA — He has heard it from umpires, coaches, spectators and reporters, from anybody who remembers anything about the ’60s and ’70s. He is Joey Fregosi and he plays baseball. You really have to ask if he’s kin? “I’ve seen pictures of me in a diaper, swinging a bat,” he said Thursday. “I’ve been around it all my life. They always ask, ‘Is that your grandpa?’ There can be a little pressure in that.” Joey is a middle infielder for Orange Coast College. There’s a little pressure in that, too. ...

Heisler: Lakers need one person in charge – and not Jeanie Buss

For Lakers fans wondering when that return to glory is coming … Just wait until 2021 when they get Giannis Antetokounmpo! In the meantime, can you all just hang in there? It’s actually good for the Lakers that Antetokounmpo won’t be free for two years because it will take that long to fix their front office … or would if they had started … which they haven’t. As for the Lakers’ current ability to plan for the future, targeting Giannis so far off recalls all the years they spent drooling over Kev...

Administration moves to revoke transgender health protection

Rep. Norma Torres, only House member from Central America, wants to fix border crisis with aid, not punishment

Rep. Norma Torres looks at the Central American migrants flocking to the Mexican border in hopes of gaining asylum in the United States and sees her own reflection. When she was 5, Torres’ parents sent her from their home, in war-torn Guatemala, to live with an uncle in Whittier. She remembers the city as less diverse than it is today, and being “pretty much the only Latino family on our street.” She also says she understands how big a move it was to send her north. “I can’t imagine what a mothe...

She knows it’s been about seven months since she asked a pro bono surgery program for help with her aching left knee, and her doctor says it could be another half a year until her number comes up. She knows there are other patients in front of her who can’t afford the procedure, and who, like her, are depending on volunteer physicians to get their lives back on track. The 53-year-...
