5/29/2020 12:25:37 PM

By Marian Wright Edelman FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT EMERITA   Every day my very beautiful, brilliant, and much beloved mixed-race African friend, Maria Nhambu—who was placed in a Tanzanian orphanage in her first week of life—feeds my spirit. She is a daily trove of shared wisdom and loving support. She recently shared a poem by Heather Plett, which profoundly spoke to me during this pandemic and turbulent political time. I hope it will move you too.   Today I will greet Grief When it comes: I will meet it at the door, I will say “Come...

New-look Santa Anita cashes winning ticket as racing returns
5/29/2020 12:21:05 PM

By Beth Harris   ARCADIA, Calif. (AP)—Horses are thundering down the stretch again at Santa Anita. There are no fans or owners cheering them on. No photos in the winner’s circle. No bets placed at the track’s windows. Still, it’s a win for the sport to be back racing against the backdrop of the San Gabriel Mountains after being idled for 1 1/2 months because of the coronavirus pandemic. “We were going to be willing to do whatever it took to get it open,” said Bob Baffert, the two-time Triple Crown-winning trainer. From March...

By Chris Frost chris@tricountysentry.com   Art already sent   Port Hueneme-- While Oxnard kept its beaches on a soft closure over Memorial Day Weekend, the mood was much different at Hueneme Beach as the site opened with social distancing measures in place and a big crowd.   The weather was on the cool side, May 23, but that didn't stop anyone, as beachgoers came out ready to enjoy the day and escape their homes.   Kids had the most fun, as they came armed with pails and ready to make sandcastles along with taking a...

Had enough of 'Contagion'? Here are some warm blanket movies
5/23/2020 8:24:07 PM

By Jake Coyle   HOLLYWOOD, CA—When many were rushing to rewatch “Contagion,” the eerily prophetic 2011 Steven Soderbergh film about the outbreak of an easily transmitted virus, I was searching for more comforting escapes. I reached for “North by Northwest” the way a baby grasps for a pacifier. Even in a pandemic, it's incredibly hard to watch “North by Northwest” without a perpetual grin on your face. Its jauntiness, buoyed by Bernard Herrmann's score, can outlast any calamity. The one we find ourselves in now doesn't...

Hospitals, health care sector reel from COVID-19 damage
5/23/2020 8:22:35 PM

By Tom Murphy   WASHINGTON, DC—The global coronavirus pandemic has created a huge need for health care in the U.S., but it also is delivering a devastating financial blow to that sector. COVID-19 worries have kept patients away from doctors’ offices and forced the postponement and cancellation of non-urgent surgeries. The pandemic also has shut down large portions of the American economy, leaving many would-be patients without insurance or in a financial pinch that makes them curb spending. All of this has forced hospitals, health systems and doctors to lay...

By Tarena Lofton khn.org   INDIANAPOLIS, IN—When Lamari Edwards joined Dreasjon “Sean” Reed’s Facebook Live video, she could sense something bad was going to happen, but she never thought she was witnessing the last moments of her friend’s life. “I had a bad feeling, but I did not think it would end this way,” said Edwards. Reed’s video showed him driving at a high speed and narrating as officers from the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department chased him May 6. The officers said they observed Reed’s car driving...
