Retired L.A. County Deputy Sheriff missing on remote Greek island

Family and friends of a 58-year-old retired L.A. County deputy sheriff who went missing three days ago on a remote Greek island are desperate for answers.   Albert Calibet set out on a hike Tuesday morning on the Greek island of Amorgos, a vacation destination he’s visited dozens of times, and was supposed to meet a friend at the end of his trek.   Unfortunately, the 58-year-old, who friends describe as a kind and generous man who easily makes friends, never showed up to the meeting with his friend.   “The clock is ticking, and we feel like we’re losing time,” family friend Robin Wynston Lynn told KTLA’s John Fenoglio.   What’s so concerning for friends and family is that Calibet is a seasoned hiker who has made it across the island’s rugged terrain many times.   “He’s physically fit,” his sister-in-law Sandrine Cutright said. “He swims every day, he runs.”  Albert Calibet, 58, seen in this undated photo.

Dodgers drop series to Rangers after stars fail to deliver in key moment

The table could not have been set any better for the Dodgers on Thursday night, their two-run deficit seemingly on the verge of disappearing in the eighth inning after Cavan Biggio was hit by a pitch and Austin Barnes singled to right field, putting runners on first and third with no outs for the top of the order. But three of the best hitters in baseball, a trio that has four most valuable player awards among them and has combined for 36 home runs and 125 RBIs this season, failed to deliver in an eventual 3-1 loss to the Texas Rangers in front of a crowd of 50,134 at Dodger Stadium. Mookie Betts and Shohei Ohtani each struck out on three pitches from Rangers setup man David Robertson, Betts swinging through a 93-mph cut-fastball and Ohtani whiffing on an 86-mph, down-and-in knuckle-curve. Freddie Freeman worked a five-pitch at-bat but swung through an 89-mph knuckle-curve for strike three, marking the second straight night that Robertson whiffed Betts, Ohtani and Freeman in the eighth inning. No other pitcher has struck out those three in succession this season.

Violence erupts inside and outside Walt Disney Concert Hall during graduation event

During a graduation ceremony held at Walt Disney Concert Hall on Thursday evening, violence broke out inside as well as outside the concert venue, and a shooting may have occurred. The L.A. County Probation Department said in a statement late Thursday that the department had co-hosted a graduation ceremony that evening for 100 high schoolers, including 29 detained youths. At the end of the ceremony, a community member leaped from a second-story balcony and assaulted a graduate. All the detained youths had already left the auditorium and were in a secure holding area. “The Probation Special Enforcement Operations unit quickly responded, containing the incident and restoring order inside the auditorium,” the statement said. Outside, however, a brawl then broke out. Four people were detained pending further investigation, the Probation Department said. Los Angeles police officers who responded after reports of the violence found evidence of a shooting near the concert hall, though officers did not locate anyone who was wounded. Police responded to the 100 block of Grand Avenue shortly after 6 p.m. after reports of a group fighting and a possible shooting, LAPD Officer

‘Inside Out 2’ mantiene el encanto sin arriesgar demasiado

Es difícil imaginar que, a lo largo de los últimos nueve años, el público general haya estado alimentando con fervor las ganas de tener una segunda parte de “Inside Out” (2015), debido sobre todo al tiempo que ha transcurrido desde que la ganadora del Oscar a la Mejor Película Animada se viera en las salas. Pero antes de calificarla como “innecesaria” (uno de los términos favoritos de los críticos que se apresuran a lanzar condenas), hay que recordar que “Inside Out 2”, la secuela que se encuentra ya en cines, tiene como antecedente directo no solo a una de las mejores cintas de animación de todos los tiempos, sino a una de las obras cinematográficas más llamativas de los últimos años, simple y llanamente. Eso no ameritaba necesariamente la continuación, por supuesto; pero cuando nos enteramos de que, a pesar del cambio de director (salió Pete Docter, entró Kelsey Mann), la que es ya una saga mantuvo al frente a la guionista Meg LeFauve, responsable de muchas de las maravillas presentes en el título del pasado, las esperanzas de tener en la pantalla algo que

Como campeón legítimo, el dominicano Adames asegura estar listo para las grandes citas

El dominicano Carlos Adames tratará de dejar atrás su falta de actividad en el último año y ahora como campeón legítimo de peso mediano del Consejo Mundial de Boxeo (CMB), espera que las peleas grandes se realicen. Adames enfrentará a Terrell Gausha (24-3-1, 12 KOs) como parte de la velada en la que Gervonta Davis peleará ante Frank Martin el sábado en el MGM Grand Arena de Las Vegas, Nevada. En la misma cartelera, David Benavídez hará su debut en la división de las 175 libras ante el excampeón mundial semipesado Oleksandr Gvozdyk en un duelo por el título interino semipesado del CMB. El peleador de 30 años de edad no pelea desde junio del año pasado cuando venció a Julian Williams en Minneapolis por nocaut técnico en lo que fue su quinta victoria de forma consecutiva, en un récord que incluye un triunfo sobre Sergiy Derevyanchenko. Adames tiene un récord de 23 victorias y 1 derrota (18 nocáuts), y defenderá por primera vez su título. Su última derrota fue ante Patrick Texeira en 2019. Para Adames ese tiempo fuera del ring ha sido deprimente

CSULA President Says Protesters Must Leave Encampment

One day after pro-Palestine activists occupied and extensively vandalized the Student Services Building, the president of Cal State Los Angeles said protesters who have been camped on the campus for more than a month must leave. “The encampment has crossed a line,” Cal State Los Angeles President Berenecea Johnson Eanes said in a statement. “Those in the encampment must leave.” Eanes also said in her statement that four people — three employees and one student — were assaulted by protesters during Wednesday’s occupation of the Student Services Building, although no other details were released. “A trust we had in the encampment to practice non-violence has been violated,” Eanes said in her statement to the “Golden Eagle Community” released Thursday afternoon. “Trust is a hard thing to restore, but we will do the work together.” The protest began Wednesday afternoon as activists descended on the building that houses the university president’s office. Some protesters chained themselves together outside the main entrance as others moved inside the building. Others used patio furniture, golf carts and other materials to establish a barricade around the structure. At one point

Judge halts new Title IX LGBTQ student protections in 4 states

June 13, 2024 / 10:28 PM EDT / AP 6/13: CBS Morning News 6/13: CBS Morning News 20:33 The Biden administration’s new Title IX rule expanding protections for LGBTQ+ students has been temporarily blocked in four states after a federal judge in Louisiana found that it overstepped the Education Department’s authority. In a preliminary injunction granted Thursday, U.S. District Judge Terry A. Doughty called the new rule an “abuse of power” and a “threat to democracy.” His order blocks the rule in Louisiana, which filed a challenge to the rule in April, and in Mississippi, Montana and Idaho, which joined the suit. The Education Department did not immediately respond to the order. The Louisiana case is among at least seven backed by more than 20 Republican-led states fighting Biden’s rule. The rule, set to take hold in August, expands Title IX civil rights protections to LGBTQ+ students, expands the definition of sexual harassment at schools and colleges, and adds safeguards for victims. Doughty, who was appointed by former President Donald Trump, is the first judge to block the rule. It deals a major blow to
