The Associated Press Stylebook and several newsrooms have dropped the term "illegal immigrant." On the AP website, a top editor clarified, "The Stylebook no longer sanctions the term 'illegal immigrant' or the use of 'illegal' to describe a person. Instead, it tells users that 'illegal' should describe only an action, such as living in or immigrating to a country illegally."
The decision has been applauded by Latino and…

That's all the Port Of Los Angeles High softball team could think about after yet another dominant CIF-Los Angeles City Section Division III playoff victory at the San Pedro Girls Softball Association Field.
By virtue of their 15-0, six-inning pounding of fourth-seeded Valley Academy Arts & Sciences of Granada Hills in the Division III semifinals, the top-seeded Polar Bears have a chance to end an already stellar 2013 season with a third straight City Section championship. An electrifying hitting attack combined with another superb outing in the circle…Continue
Junior INF/P/OF Jocelyn Kondash, sophomore outfielder Cayla Ezelle, and sophomore INF/OF Taylor Richter are a trio of big reasons why the Pirates are currently on a roll heading into Tuesday's CIF-Los Angeles City Section semifinal game at rival Carson, one of the two Marine League co-champions (Banning of Wilmington being the other) who have already defeated San Pedro twice this season.…Continue
They found one in junior infielder Michelle Corona.
Most recently the Pirates, notably Corona, had struggled with runners in scoring position, but not on this exchange as Corona drilled a two-run single to right field, powering San Pedro to a dramatic 2-1 comeback victory at Granada Hills in the first round of the CIF-Los Angeles City Section Division I playoffs. That play was just another clutch playoff moment…Continue
That's exactly how the Port Of Los Angeles High softball team wanted their first round CIF-Los Angeles City Section Division III playoff opener against visiting New Designs of Los Angeles to go.
Going on a ten-run outburst in the second inning after opening off the game with six runs in the first, the top-seeded Polar Bears made no bones about their intentions of a three-peat by routing the No.16 Cardinals, 17-1 in five innings at the San Pedro Girls Softball Association Field. POLA (25-8 overall) pounded out 13 hits, six went for extra bases, to…Continue
Playing third base is a tough job it seems since it's the position that has the longest throw to first base on ground ball chances, but this job suits Demers to a T. Not making much mistakes fielding wise, and at the plate when she delivers clutch hits for the Stars, Demers has helped her team win three straight Camino Real League championships, including this season after last Wednesday's 2-0 win over Cantwell Sacred-Heart of Montebello sealed up the title.…Continue
When the CIF-Los Angeles City Section playoff pairings for baseball and softball were announced Saturday, everyone truly knew the Port Of Los Angeles High softball team was going to get the top seed in the Division III playoffs, and the prediction of that happening, if there were any, was true.
Meanwhile, the Polar Bears' baseball team has flew under the radar with a stellar season of their own.
They too were awarded a top seed in the Division III playoffs.
Now the dream of two teams…Continue
With two-time defending CIF-Los Angeles City Section Small Schools champion Community Harvest of Los Angeles disbanding their whole baseball program, the Polar Bears have been looking forward to seize the moment after blowing a one-run lead against their nemesis in last year's semifinals, leaving with a disappointing 4-3 loss.
POLA would take their first step by clinching their first Crosstown League championship with a 10-2 win over visiting Bright Star of Los Angeles at Henderson Field in…Continue
CARSON - On April 9, the San Pedro High boys volleyball came to Carson High, and the Colts swept the Pirates three straight in their first Marine League battle. On April 25, the Pirates returned the favor with a sweep of their own to gain a share of their second straight league crown at San Pedro High.
They would meet again on Thursday for higher stakes because this was a CIF-Los Angeles City Section Division I quarterfinal, and the Pirates were able to emerge victorious, 21-25, 25-18, 25-19, 21-25, 15-13. Senior middle blocker Sean Zuvich led the Pirates (24-7-1 overall) with 15 kills, 11 digs and six blocks, while senior setter Austin Freitas had 52…Continue
Tomorrow's election day. We've been bombarded with mail and tv, millions of dollars worth, and it still seems to me (and I usually try to follow these things) about very few tangible effects for the neighborhoods.(Interestingly, almost all the millions on the mayoral campaign have come from our neighbors on the westside.) The differences between the mayoral candidates are…
It's located in Santa Monica but it's a big hospital Rancho Park adjacent, and it's just undergone a total architectural overhaul largely funded by Patrick Soon Shiong, an LA billionaire with an amazing background. (Briefly: Chinese parents, born in South Africa, educated in Canada, became a surgeon in LA, got UCLA professorship, resigned UCLA professorship to found startup which exploded, now may be richest man in town, …
Westwood Blvd has been designated a backbone of the LA 2010 Bike Plan Network and targeted for the extension of now fragmentary bike lanes.
The many cyclists who ride this corridor everyday, along with those would-be cyclists who have been afraid to get out there under current conditions, have welcomed this news. The stretch between Santa Monica and Pico presents particularly dangerous conditions for cyclists as now configured. This…
I do not understand why there are so many homeless people in our neighborhood. I know most of them have been here for years and have no where else to go, but why do they come specifically to Rancho Park?
