Dodgers still searching for ways to reverse Kenley Jansen’s decline

SURPRISE, Ariz. — No one yet has found a way to turn back the hands of time. The Dodgers’ 33-year-old closer Kenley Jansen has certainly tried the past few years. The velocity and movement on Jansen’s essential cut fastball has been on a slow decline each of the past four seasons – from a 93.6 mph average in 2016 to 93.3 in 2017 to 92.3 mph in 2018 to 92.0 mph in 2019 to a bounceback 92.4 mph in 2020. Jansen made the pilgrimage to Driveline Baseball two winters ago in search of answers. He adopt...

Los Angeles County Department of Public Health officials reported 22 new deaths and 1,313 new coronavirus cases on Sunday, March 7.

Long Before This Year’s Announcement, Read Across America Was Turning Away From Dr. Seuss Books

Conservatives heard that Loudon County had banished Dr. Seuss and started a backlash about “cancel culture.” But that wasn’t reality. “In fact, the Virginia county hadn’t banned his books but merely released guidance — back in 2019 — suggesting a pivot toward more diverse reading. Read Across America has been issuing the same guidance since 2018. And over the past several years, educators across the country have increasingly concluded that other books might better promote literacy and inclusive...

How a Montebello DJ spent years tracking down rare Armenian music of the ’70s and ’80s

Darone Sassounian gasped when he finally found the record. For years, Sassounian had been on the hunt for “Sunrise,” a 1979 album from Armenian musician Avo Haroutiounian. The album was recorded and released through a local label, Parseghian Records, after Haroutiounian had settled in Los Angeles. But when Sassounian, a Montebello-based DJ, stumbled upon it, he was far from home. At the time, Sassounian was digging through records at a friend’s shop in Bourj Hammoud, a Lebanese town outside of B...

Tahj Eaddy, USC stun UCLA to keep Pac-12 title hopes alive

LOS ANGELES — Perhaps there is a reason Tahj Eaddy wore Jonah Mathews’ No. 2 for USC this season. Like Mathews a year ago, Eaddy provided the stunning, last-second blow to UCLA in the regular-season finale by draining a corner 3-pointer with one second to play, giving the Trojans their only lead of the game. It was the only one they needed as UCLA could not get its half-court attempt off in time and the Trojans escaped Pauley Pavilion with a 64-63 win Saturday. USC guard Tahj Eaddy, left, foll...
