  • 'Tommy Bahama State Beach' might be the only way to go

    'Tommy Bahama State Beach' might be the only way to go
    Maybe it's the summer heat. Or maybe, like a lot of people, I've given up all hope of any bold leadership in California when it comes to the budget. Whatever the reason, I'm getting more comfortable with the idea of a beer company sponsoring a state...
  • To limit child tragedies, give social workers what they need

    To limit child tragedies, give social workers what they need
    The first items Nancy Razo pulled out of her binder when we sat down to talk were obituaries of three co-workers who died of strokes that Razo believes were linked to stress on the job. "These were women who dedicated their lives to public service, to...
  • Clippers center DeAndre Jordan learns by the seat of his pants

    Clippers center DeAndre Jordan learns by the seat of his pants
    The last Clippers fans saw of DeAndre Jordan, he was making his usual fourth-quarter playoff moves. Turning his head to watch teammates run up the court. Readjusting in his seat whenever the urge struck. Standing up during timeouts. It's tough to earn...
  • Riding the public gravy train

    Riding the public gravy train
    If you're looking for work in this rotten economy, I've got a tip: Run, don't walk, to the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power and apply for anything they've got. A reader sent me a posting for an executive secretary position at the DWP, and the...
  • Rejecting test scores as a core value

    Rejecting test scores as a core value
    It wasn't about money. It was about respect. That's what Chicago teachers union president Karen Lewis kept reminding the public during the seven-day teachers strike that had parents scrambling and kept 350,000 children out of class. But there was way...
  • California's fiscal troubles are far from resolved

    California's fiscal troubles are far from resolved
    Last week, Proposition 30 sailed to victory, and $6-billion worth of nasty budget cuts were avoided. Problem solved? Guess again, Goldilocks. K-12 schools and community colleges, in particular, won a temporary reprieve, but they're still wobbly...
  • NHL, players join with You Can Play to fight homophobia in hockey

    NHL, players join with You Can Play to fight homophobia in hockey
    Maybe it really is as simple as it sounds. That for the NHL and its players, establishing a partnership with the You Can Play project — which fights homophobia and advocates for the inclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transsexual athletes in...
  • Patt Morrison Asks: Memorial man Peter Walker

    Patt Morrison Asks: Memorial man Peter Walker
    Berkeley landscape architect Peter Walker has designed bigger projects than the 9/11 memorial in New York, but probably none has carried more weight. The opening of the eight-acre plaza Sunday marks 10 years since the terrorist attacks, and almost as many...
  • Dodger Stadium's creature comforts beckon even to skunks

     Dodger Stadium's creature comforts beckon even to skunks
    "Now playing second base and batting third, Pepe Le Pew." In the Dodgers' fairy-tale season, even the forest creatures have started showing up at the stadium — particularly a posse of wild skunks. And no, they don't stop at the security...
  • Jeff Gordon: Big wheel

    Jeff Gordon: Big wheel
    Any sport is ultimately all about the numbers, right? Here's Jeff Gordon -- four-time winner of what's now called the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, three-time Daytona 500 winner, first driver to reach $100 million in series winnings -- and all I really want...
  • Joe's Joe: Joe Coulombe

    Joe's Joe: Joe Coulombe
    I was traveling to Washington early in the George W. Bush administration and asked a friend who was working in the White House whether I could bring her something from L.A. Was there anything she really, really missed? Yes, she said: Trader Joe's Mt....
