Report: Warriors ‘a big threat’ to sign Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo

Kevin Durant may have left town, but the Warriors might not be done “ruining the NBA,” according to an ESPN report. Should Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo become a free agent in 2021, the Warriors are “a big threat” to sign the NBA’s most recent MVP and create another super team, Ramona Shelbourne said Monday on “The Jump.” Milwaukee has said it will offer the super max (five years, $247 million) to Antetokounmpo as a means of keeping the three-time All-Star who just led the Bucks to the NBA’s best record. However, there may be reasons to believe he could look toward the Bay Area to play with Stephen Curry, with whom he’s developed a friendship with off the floor. “The one team lurking out there — I don’t know how this would happen — but the Warriors have always been the big threat to go after Giannis,” Shelbourne said. “It would be a difficult construction to make happen, but that is the one looming threat.” Those into reading the tea leaves will point out Antetokounmpo shares the same agency as Curry and, when making the…

San Jose Sharks forward’s career at a crossroads

SAN JOSE — Forward Antti Suomela, arguably the Sharks’ biggest free agent signing out of Europe in 2018, is now fighting for a job to stay in the NHL. “This is the biggest year for me, absolutely,” Suomela said Tuesday. “I really want to play well this year.” Suomela, 25, receives his first opportunity Tuesday to show he belongs, as he’ll start on a line with Timo Meier and Kevin Labanc for the Sharks’ preseason opener at SAP Center against the Anaheim Ducks. Like our Sharks Facebook page for more San Jose Sharks news, commentary and conversation. Suomela made the Sharks’ roster at the end of training camp last season and was the team’s third line center for most of the first two months of the regular season. But after recording three goals and five assists in 20 games, Suomela’s game hit a snag.  He not only went without a point in seven straight games from Nov. 20 to Dec. 7, but also lost about 60 percent of his faceoffs. Suomela was reassigned to the Barracuda on Dec. 11, and really never made a compelling…

Burn suspension remains in effect despite recent rain

The Tehama Glenn Unit of Cal Fire and the Tehama County Fire Department remind residents that even with the recent rain and cooler temperatures the burn suspension is still in effect and there will be no residential burning allowed in Tehama County or the State Responsibility Areas within Glenn County until the burn suspension is officially lifted. Residents are still urged to use caution when doing outdoor activities, as fires can still start and spread rapidly, especially on windy days.

Andrew Yang Doesn’t Support Impeaching Justice Kavanaugh

Presidential candidate Andrew Yang doesn’t support impeaching Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh in the wake of a new allegation of sexual misconduct from the justice’s time in college at Yale, Yang told necn’s “Primary Source” Tuesday. Some Democrats believe that the new allegation, detailed in The New York Times this weekend, indicates that Kavanaugh lied under oath during a Supreme Court confirmation hearing, which they say is an impeachable offense. Yang’s opposition comes from his belief that the process wouldn’t succeed, he said. Liberal, Moderate Divide on Display in Democratic Debate “I did not think that he should have made it on the Supreme Court,” he said. “I would support impeachment if I thought it had any chance of success but I genuinely don’t and so I don’t think it’s a productive avenue to pursue.” Kavanaugh’s confirmation process focused on a series of sexual misconduct allegations that Kavanaugh stridently denied. Some Democrats believe that backlash among Republicans shored up support for GOP candidates in close Senate races, helping the party retain control of the Senate.

Later School Start Time Bill Heads to Gov. Newsom’s Desk

Middle and high school students might have more time to hit the snooze button before school starts as the California State Legislature approved a bill that will allow for later school start times. Senate Bill 328, first introduced in February 2019, was approved by the State Legislature on Saturday. Some Bay Area Cities Bracing For Future Sea Level Rise If passed, the bill will require high and middle schools, including charter schools, to start no earlier than 8:30 a.m. Three pilot schools, including San Diego Schools of Creative and Performing Arts, were already testing the late-start schedule in San Diego. Why Oakland A’s Pitcher Mike Fiers Played With Unusual Beard “Waking up later is better but getting out later conflicts with other schools for students who have to play sports, like me,” said Kaijah Peterson, a student at SDSCPA. “I went to school early and I didn’t have no healthy time, and I’m doing ok,” said Peterson’s mom. Those who support the bill said late start times can improve grades, behavior, and emotional health but others argued the time change makes it more difficult to…

An Island Imperiled: Climate Change Threatens Greenland

For many scientists, Greenland is considered “ground zero” for climate change, a place where global warming’s impact is most apparent — and where the effects of rising temperatures, warming oceans and melting ice could have the most dire consequences. But for the 55,000 people who make their home on this massive, ice-covered island, an autonomous Danish territory, the realities of climate change are complex, bringing both unexpected benefits and acute challenges, NBC News reports. Across the island, the unprecedented melting of Greenland’s glaciers is opening up new waterways for fishing and tourism. In Ilulissat, in West Greenland, these industries have thrived in recent years, bringing considerable wealth to the town. But elsewhere, particularly in East Greenland, the shorter winters and longer, warmer summers have endangered hunting, dogsledding and other traditional ways of life for Greenland’s roughly 50,000 Inuits. “We’re seeing unprecedented melting of the ice sheet right now, and Greenland’s ice sheet is at the center of everything,” said Thomas Juul-Pedersen, a scientist and education coordinator at the Greenland Climate Research Centre in Nuuk, the country’s capital. “That can potentially have a big impact on…

LA County Fair 2019: Sky Ride lifts you to great heights … of anxiety

The Sky Ride is the snow-less ski lift at the LA County Fair that carries passengers high overhead, offering a panoramic view of the fairgrounds. I’d never been on it. Heights make me nervous. And yet, seeing people above me traveling in slow motion, I’ve always been curious about the ride. So are a friend and her mother, who successfully talk themselves out of taking it by reasoning, “It’s hotter up there. I don’t want to get closer to the sun.” Makes sense. Still, every year I think, oh, I should ride that — next year. And one day last week, “next year” finally arrived. The view from the Sky Ride as it travels west over the LA County Fair and descends toward the Clock Tower. High above, and higher than he’d remembered seeing people travel, David Allen takes his first trip on the Sky Ride at the LA County Fair.

Friends Offer Remembrances, Set up Memorial Fund for Local Surfer

Well-known local surfer David “Big Wave Dave” Hargrave died Monday after apparently suffering a medical issue while out on the waves, according to posts from his friends and his daughter. Fellow surfers went to his aid in the water off the North Jetty after he was seen floating face down and the U.S. Coast Guard and emergency ground personnel also responded. One of those who jumped on their boards was Jim Merryfield, who said immediately called 911 after he arrived at the jetty and saw the situation, then went into the water. “I’m glad I helped,” Merryfield told photographer Mark McKenna at the scene. “It took all three of us.” After attempting CPR for some time, Merryfield said, “The Coast Guard pulled up next to us and pulled him in the boat.” He described Hargrave and those who swam to his rescue as “experienced surfers” with “decades in the water.” A GoFundMe account has been set to raise money for his memorial. Message from the GoFundMe page: Dave Hargrave, a local surf legend and beloved fixture in the surf community in Humboldt County tragically died…

Cougar goes inside California house, lies down in bathroom

SONORA, Calif. (AP) — Officials say a mountain lion wandered inside a California house and was captured in a photo lying on a bathroom floor. The Tuolumne County Sheriff’s office said in a Facebook post that family members and the mountain lion ran away from each other Sunday after the cougar entered the home when the door was opened to let in cool air. The big cat dashed to the second-story bathroom of the home in the Sierra Nevada foothill town of Sonora and the family ran away from it. The mountain lion was coaxed out of the bathroom window by sheriffs’ deputies and state wildlife officers. Then it jumped to the ground. Authorities said the mountain lion didn’t threaten anybody. They released a photo of the cougar resting on the bathroom’s tile floor. Categories: California News, National & International News, Trending

EPA set to end California’s ability to regulate fuel economy

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Trump administration is poised to revoke California’s authority to set auto mileage standards, asserting that only the federal government can regulate greenhouse gas emissions and fuel economy. Conservative and free-market groups have been invited to attend an announcement of the rollback Wednesday afternoon at the Environmental Protection Agency headquarters in Washington. The move comes after the Justice Department opened an antitrust investigation into a deal between California and four automakers for tougher pollution and mileage requirements than those sought by President Donald Trump. Trump also has sought to relax Obama-era mileage standards nationwide, weakening a key effort to slow climate change. The White House declined to comment Tuesday, referring questions to the EPA. The EPA didn’t respond to requests seeking comment. Categories: California News, Local San Diego News, National & International News, Politics
