Sad, surreal scene in Los Angeles before Lakers' first game since Kobe Bryant's death - San Angelo Standard Times
Gianna Bryant on the shoulders of her father Kobe, the Lakers legend, both of whom died Sunday with seven other people in a helicopter crash in Calabasas — an accident that sent shockwaves of sadness the world over.
This was the first time the Lakers played since their deaths. And it felt like a state funeral, dwarfing in emotional importance the game itself, which the Lakers lost, 127-119.
At 7:25 p.m. PT, the lights went off inside the area, sparking chants of “MVP!” and a star-studded tribute to Bryant. Singer Usher started it, belting out a soulful rendition of “Amazing Grace” as he stood on the court between giant displays of Bryant’s two Lakers jersey numbers in gold flowers: 8 and 24.
Cellist Ben Hong then took Usher’s place and played for the crowd as a video of Bryant played on the screens above the court.
“You guys will always be in my heart,” Kobe said in it. “Thank you, thank you, from the bottom of my heart."
R&B music group Boyz II Men followed with the national anthem, crooning with emotion before the microphone was handed to Lakers star LeBron James. He spoke publicly for the first time since the tragedy.
“I want to continue, along with my teammates, to continue his legacy not only for this year but for as long as we can play the game of basketball that we love, because that’s what Kobe Bryant would want,” James said. “So in the words of Kobe Bryant, `Mamba out.’ But in the words of us, `Not forgotten.' Live on brother.”
Lakers luminaries Magic Johnson, Elgin Baylor and James Worthy were among those in attendance, along with Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea and LA Galaxy striker Chicharito. Team owner Jeanie Buss sat with boyfriend and comedian Jay Mohr and general manager Rob Pelinka, who was Bryant's agent for much of his career, held his daughter on his lap as he watched.
Fans without tickets came from hours away just to honor Bryant, including Chris Huitron, his wife Monique and their daughter, age 5. They got married on “8-24” last year because of their shared love for Bryant. Chris Huitron said he felt he owed it to Kobe because of how he helped him through a challenging childhood of moving around to dif... Dec 28, 2016

It’s never the same at the Ventura County Fairgrounds Wednesday swap meet.
“You never know who’s going to be here and you never know what they’re going to bring,” said Sue Davis, who runs the weekly swap meet.
In the early morning chill of a recent Wednesday, the 300 small spots available were filled with everything from statuesque lamps, vinyl records, old political buttons, military items, clothes and toys to plants, old artwork and jewelry.
Davis said she keeps the emphasis on vintage items.
“We mostly have antique and used items,” said Davis, who currently lives in Tarzana, but is moving to Camarillo.
She also runs the weekly swap meets Thursdays at the Earl Warren Showgrounds in Santa Barbara.
With the holidays looming, more vendors want spaces at the market. Davis said all 300 available spots at... (Ventura County Star)Sep 14, 2016
Rare San Fernando Valley Flower Proposed for Endangered Species Act Protection
Newhall Ranch development project.
The Service has received multiple petitions to protect the flower. In 1999 the city of Calabasas petitioned for the plant’s protection; the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy petitioned for its protection in 2000; and the Center for Biological Diversity petitioned for its protection in 2004. In 2011 the Center and the Service reached a landmark agreement requiring the agency to make decisions on all of the plants and animals on the candidate waiting list by the end of this fiscal year.
The Ventura County population is protected from development because it occurs in a designated open space preserve. The population in the footprint of the Newhall Ranch development has been proposed for management under a conservation plan developed by the company, under the state Endangered Species Act, that allowed the company to remove part of the population in exchange for creating preserves to protect about 75 percent of the plants. Protection under the federal Endangered Species Act will require the company and state to work with the Service to develop an expanded and supplemented conservation strategy.
“This added federal protection is needed and welcome, because the current plan is inadequate to safeguard this unique wildflower from development,” said Buse.
In addition to development, the plant is threatened by non-native invasive plants, Argentine ants, grazing, agriculture, utility-line maintenance, recreation and global climate change.
Following today’s proposed protection, the Service will accept public comment before finalizing protection for the plant in one year.
The plant’s scientific name is Chorizanthe parryi var. fernandina.
The Center for Biological Diversity is a national, nonprofit conservation organization with more than 1.1 million members and online activists dedicated to the protection of endangered species and wild places.

Harrison Ford recently helped prove that there's no such thing as an irreparably damaged franchise. The original Indiana Jones trilogy may not yet have its equivalent of The Force Awakens to erase the damage done by a newer, less well-received installment, but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy the Egyptian's triple feature of Raiders of the Lost Ark, Temple of Doom and The Last Crusade. Not on the docket: 2008's Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. If you really want to revisit that one, just look up Shia LaBeouf's #ALLMYMOVIES performance/endurance test online and watch it with him. Egyptian Theatre, 6712 Hollywood Blvd., Hollywood; Sat., Jan. 2, 5 p.m.; $11. (323) 466-3456, americancinemathequecalendar.com. —Michael Nordine
