Foothill League cancels all nonleague football games because of recent coronavirus news

Schools in the Foothill League have been told to cancel all of their nonleague football games because of the recent surge in the spread of COVID-19 in Los Angeles County, and were informed that league games are also in jeopardy if the county remains in the purple tier. The decision was made by the William S. Hart Union High School District, which includes the six schools — Canyon, Golden Valley, Hart, Saugus, Valencia and West Ranch — that play varsity football in the Foothill League. The district explained in a letter sent out Thursday, Nov. 19, that it reached its decision based on the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health rules.

Michigan certifies Biden win; another defeat for Trump

By DAVID EGGERT, ZEKE MILLER and COLLEEN LONG LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan election officials on Monday certified President-elect Joe Biden’s 154,000-vote victory in the state, another defeat for President Donald Trump in his futile effort to undermine the results of the Nov. 3 election through baseless legal challenges and unsupported claims of fraud. Trump’s effort to stave off the inevitable — formal recognition of his defeat — is facing increasingly stiff resistance from the courts and fellow Republicans with just three weeks to go until the Electoral College meets to certify Biden’s victory. Time and again, Trump’s challenges and baseless allegations of widespread conspiracy and fraud have been met with rejection as states move forward with confirming their results. In Michigan, the

U.S. agency says Biden is the ‘apparent winner,’ lets transition begin

In this June 21, 2019 file photo, General Services Administration Administrator Emily Murphy speaks during a ribbon cutting ceremony for the Department of Homeland Security’s St. Elizabeths Campus Center Building in Washington. The head of the obscure federal government agency that is holding up Joe Biden’s presidential transition knew well before Election Day she might have a messy situation on her hands well. Prior to Nov. 3, GSA administrator Emily Murphy held a Zoom call with Dave Barram, 77, a man who was in her shoes 20 years earlier during the contested 2000 election between George W. Bush and Al Gore. Barram said he gave her some simple advice, “If you do the right thing, then all you have to do is live with the consequences of it.’” | Susan Walsh, Associated Press The General Ser...

By Kristen Holmes and Jeremy Herb | CNN The General Services Administration has informed President-elect Joe Biden that the Trump administration is ready to begin the formal transition process, according to a letter from Administrator Emily Murphy sent Monday afternoon and obtained by CNN. The letter is the first step the administration has taken to acknowledge President Donald Trump’s defeat, more than two weeks after Biden was declared the winner in the election.

Max Ehrich to Demi Lovato: Stop Trying to Use ME for Fame!!

It's been two months since Demi Lovato dumped fiance-slash-stalker Max Ehrich. How, he has the audacity to accuse her of using him for fame. At the People's Choice Awards, Demi Lovato poked a little fun at her former fiance. She had an opening monologue and, like so many stars before her, she acknowledged the headlines that she had made.

Bears coach Matt Nagy should have emerged from his bye-week bunker Monday with something bold to say. He should have declared that, upon a week’s worth of film review, it was clear — to him, to the players and to anyone with eyes — that the offense was in need of a change. He should have stressed how important Mitch Trubisky — yes, the failed No. 2 overall pick — was to sparking his damp matchbook of an offense over the last six weeks of the season. He should have named Trubisky the starter for Sunday’s game against the Packers right away — pres
