Rams’ Jordan Fuller has night to hold onto in win over Bucs, Tom Brady

Jordan Fuller was a toddler when Tom Brady broke into the NFL. Monday night, the Rams’ 22-year-old rookie safety got something from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ 43-year-old quarterback that he’ll cherish when he’s an old man. Fuller grabbed an interception of a Brady pass in the third quarter and held onto the ball as a keepsake, and then added a second interception and second memento late in the fourth to clinch the Rams’ 27-24 victory over the Bucs in Tampa. “Those are going to be in the man cave someday,” Fuller said of the balls in a video conference with reporters right after the game. It was Fuller’s second game since returning from missing three with a shoulder and neck injury. “Being on IR was tough,” said Fuller, who had a game-saving tackle in the Rams’ Week 1 victory over Dallas. “

By ERIC HEINZ, City News Service LOS ANGELES >> Travelers coming through Los Angeles International and Van Nuys airports and Union Station beginning Wednesday will be required to sign a form acknowledging California’s recommended 14-day self-quarantine in response to rising coronavirus rates. The form will be available at travel.lacity.org, Mayor Eric Garcetti said during a coronavirus briefing Monday.

New FAA documents reveal SpaceX’s latest plans for launching Starship prototypes on suborbital flights from South Texas — and potential hurdles to orbit

Summary List PlacementThe Federal Aviation Administration on Monday published several key documents and a new website related to SpaceX's future in Boca Chica, Texas. The aerospace company is moving briskly at the site to develop, build, and launch a nearly 400-foot-tall launcher called Starship-Super Heavy. If the system — a steel spaceship and rocket booster — is realized as founder Elon Musk has envisioned it, it could reduce the cost of access to low-Earth orbit by about 1,000-fold, revolutionize travel, send people to the moon, and possibly help populate Mars. But while SpaceX privately owns its South Texas launch and development site, Elon Musk-founded aerospace company has strayed far from its original plans for the site. In July 2014, after years of work, the company completed an...

Donald Trump’s election denialism must be rejected

President Donald Trump lost the Nov. 3 election clearly, decisively and legally. On Saturday, the president’s efforts to invalidate election results in Pennsylvania, where Joe Biden is ahead by 80,000 votes, were dismissed by U.S. District Judge Matthew Brann, who said the president’s team offered “strained legal arguments without merit and speculative accusations … unsupported by evidence.” This is just the latest in a long line of dismissals across the country, with judges in states ranging from Arizona to Georgia to Michigan tossing the president’s legal challenges to the election. Indisputable evidence of any result-changing fraud has yet to materialize. Unfortunately, the president and his surrogates have taken to increasingly wild claims involving widespread, systematic election frau

Blaine Amendments and California charter schools

Churches may not run any of California’s charter schools. A United States Supreme Court decision from last June might change that. Montana had established a scholarship, funded by private donations, whose donors received a state income tax credit. The state had promulgated a rule denying students from using such scholarships at religious schools. The court ruled, 5 to 4, that Montana did not have to establish the scholarship program but, since it did, it could not exclude students applying a scholarship to a school just because it was religious. An easier case had been decided in 2017. Missouri had made state money available for repaving parking lots at daycare centers, but not for those run by churches.  A parking lot involves no religious practice. The court struck down Missouri’s law 7

Biden transition gets govt OK after Trump out of options

By ZEKE MILLER, DAVID EGGERT and COLLEEN LONG WASHINGTON (AP) — The federal government recognized President-elect Joe Biden as the “apparent winner” of the Nov. 3 election on Monday, formally starting the transition of power after President Donald Trump spent weeks testing the boundaries of American democracy. He relented after suffering yet more legal and procedural defeats in his seemingly futile effort to overturn the election with baseless claims of fraud. Trump still refused to concede and vowed to continue to fight in court after General Services Administrator Emily Murphy gave the green light for Biden to coordinate with federal agencies ahead of his Jan. 20 inauguration. But Trump did tweet that he was directing his team to cooperate on the transition. Monday’s fast-moving series o

What will happen if I don’t renew my auto registration? Roadshow

Q: How does California enforce annual vehicle license renewals and tags? During a walk around my neighborhood, I saw one vehicle with a 2018 tag, one with 2014 and one with 1992. If these people are not paying their annual license fee, will anyone ever catch them? David Stearns, Concord Like Mr. Roadshow’s Facebook page for more questions and answers about Bay Area roads, freeways and commuting. A: Oh, yes. State officials insist they are on top of this for in-state offenders. According to Fred-a-Franchise-Tax Man: “In regards to vehicle registration scofflaws who don’t pay their fees, I can guarantee your readers that the Franchise Tax Board does indeed garnish their wages.
