LA Galaxy Officially Welcomes Chicharito

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez was set to train with the L.A. Galaxy for the first time since the announcement that the Mexican soccer star signed with the team. Hernandez spoke to reporters in Carson at his official introductory news conference Thursday and said he already feels at home in L.A. “You see all the belief that people have in me, all the value they give me,” said Hernandez. “I’ve been treated with a lot of value, a lot of respect.” LAX sounded more like a wild soccer game as fans greeted Hernandez, who arrived in Los Angeles Wednesday night.

Bay Area food bank is still feeding Camp Fire survivors

More than a year after the deadliest fire in California’s history, the Contra Costa and Solano County Food Bank is still regularly helping local food banks and survivors affected by the blaze, organizers say, and plans to continue the resource-heavy effort as long as there is a need. The Contra Costa and Solano County Food Bank, which serves roughly 1 in 9 residents in both counties, has an agreement to assist Northern California food banks after a natural disaster through its membership with Feeding America, a national network of food banks. It began helping North County food banks shortly after the Camp Fire tore through Butte County in November 2018, killing 85 people and destroying thousands of homes, businesses, and buildings. The food bank provided over 2.5 million pounds of food to Camp Fire survivors last year and distributed more than 1.3 million pounds of food in Butte County in 2018, according to communications director Lisa Sherrill. It now provides food for three distributions each month — typically serving 200 to 300 people — and plans to continue as long as resource-strapped food banks and survivors need…

Motivational dictionary

My wife and I enjoy the HBO series “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” If you’re not familiar with it, Larry David, co-creator of Seinfeld and real-life inspiration for its George Costanza character, plays a curmudgeon with his crankiness meter maxing the dial. In his world, everything is offensive, annoying, or a personal affront to his way of life. Season ten debuted recently and part of what aroused David’s high dudgeon was that people were still using the term “Happy New Years” over two weeks into said new year. “Three days maximum,” he explains as to how long one can use the expression after the calendar has flipped. As far as I’m concerned, use the expression as long as you want. However, don’t tell me about resolutions or I’ll go all Larry David on you. Every January, we are deluged with news stories, ads, editorials, self-help gurus, and any blowhard who can flap his gums to a crowd of more than three people telling us how to improve our lives. As I have lamented ad nauseum, the changing of the calendar triggers countless well-intended individuals to declare resolutions…

Bills May Exempt Freelancers, Newspapers From California Law

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Freelance writers and newspaper carriers would be exempted from a broad new California labor law requiring that many be treated as employees rather than independent contractors, under legislation announced Thursday by a state senator. The measures face an uphill battle in part because they were introduced by a Republican, Sen. Patricia Bates of Laguna Niguel, in a legislature dominated by Democrats who support the labor law, and because the law’s author opposes at least one of the rollbacks. However, Democratic Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez of San Diego, who heads a powerful gatekeeper committee, has been meeting regularly with those who want changes to her law that took effect Jan. 1. Gov. Gavin Newsom also has said he anticipates tweaks to the law he signed that aim to give wage and benefit protections to people who work as independent contractors. Gonzalez has introduced legislation that can be updated “to continue our work on these issues and to make sure the law is fair for workers, law-abiding businesses and California’s taxpayers,” she said in a statement. The focus has been largely on ride-share companies…
