  • Rockets confront Austin Rivers, Blake Griffin in Clippers’ locker roomRockets confront Austin Rivers, Blake Griffin in Clippers’ locker room

    Tempers flared at the end of Monday’s Rockets-Clippers game and, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, those tempers extended into the locker room. James Harden, Trevor Ariza and Gerald Green reportedly pushed into the Clippers’ locker room looking for Austin Rivers, who was apparently talking trash at Ariza during the final moments of the fourth quarter.

There was a similar situation against the Mavericks last season. Clint Capela was sent for a diversion while the others tried to break in the back door.

(Photo by Harry How/Getty Images)Show Caption of Expand LOS ANGELES — It started with boos, which turned into cheers for Chris Paul. It ended with mayhem and an ugly scene in a corridor outside the Clippers’ locker room as Paul and several of his Houston Rockets teammates tried to enter to confront injured guard Austin Rivers and perhaps Blake Griffin. Staples Center security stopped the players before they could gain entrance, keeping the teams apart after matters nearly spiraled out of control on the court in the closing minutes of the Clippers’ 113-102 victory over the Rockets on Monday night. This was supposed to be Paul’s night, his homecoming, his return to his place of employment for six seasons. The Clippers ruined the party, seized the night and made it theirs, winning their fifth in a row, moving above .500 at 22-21 and into seventh place in the Western Conference. Griffin and Houston coach Mike D’Antoni cursed at each other after Paul fouled Griffin on a drive to the basket with the Clippers in command of the game. Griffin and D’Antoni were each given technical fouls with the Clippers ahead 108-98 with 3:34 left. D’Antoni later said Griffin hit him on the sideline. Emotions reached a boiling point when Griffin intercepted Houston’s Trevor Ariza, who began yelling at Austin Rivers on the Clippers’ bench. Griffin drew his second technical foul and was ejected with 1:03 remaining, and Ariza also was tossed. The final seconds passed without incident, and the Clippers and Rockets retreated to their locker rooms. The Clippers got inside and stayed there, but Ariza, Paul, Gerald Green and injured guard James Harden attempted to get into the locker room via an adjoining corridor. A fifth player, reportedly Clint Capela, knocked on the main door of the Clippers’ locker room, but whoever answered it, shut it quickly on the Rockets’ center. “We were where we were supposed to be,” Griffin said when asked about the postgame incident. “We were in our locker room. Whatever happens over there, we controlled what we did. We were in our locker room in our seats. You should ask them.” Paul ducked questions about the Rockets’ attempted invasion of the Clippers’ locker room. The Clippers were not particularly forthcoming, either. “We’re honoring Martin Luther King Day,” Coach Doc Rivers said. “We’re non-violent.” The NBA is expected to investigate the incident. On the court, Paul was at his all-too-familiar best, scoring 19 points, grabbing six rebounds and adding seven assists. He and the Harden-less Rockets couldn’t prevent the Clippers from winning their 11th game in their last 14, which has vaulted them back into the playoff race. Harden sat out for the seventh consecutive game because of a hamstring injury. Lou Williams and Griffin took the Clippers where they wanted to go, scoring from far and near. Williams scored 31 points on 12-for-19 shooting, including 4 for 8 from 3-point range, and Griffin added 29 points, 10 rebounds and six assists. It was bound to be an emotional night, Paul’s first visit to face the Clippers since he was granted his wish to be traded last summer, and it didn’t disappoint. The Clippers trailed by as many as 10 points before closing the half with a 25-12 run. They never trailed again. It was not just another game for Williams, Sam Dekker, Montrezl Harrell and injured guard Patrick Beverley, the players the Clippers received from the Rockets in the deal for Paul. They had celebrated their Houston homecomings with the Clippers’ Dec. 22 victory over the Rockets. “We’ve got a lot of hungry guys,” Williams said.

It wasn’t angry or sustained. When the first TV timeout arrived midway through the first quarter and a tribute video played on the giant overhanging scoreboard, all seemed to be forgiven. Many in the non-sellout crowd of 17,622 stood and cheered. Paul’s legacy in six seasons with the Clippers was not a championship, but it was something nearly as lasting and important. Paul helped chart a new, winning course that didn’t exist before his arrival. It took time, but the Clippers underwent a dramatic image makeover during his tenure. “It’s always emotional when you lose, especially against your former team,” Paul said at game’s end. “All of the emotions that go into seeing familiar faces and stuff like that. For us, we have to be better. Give them credit, they won the game.” Can confirm wild details from Staples Center: Chris Paul, James Harden, Trevor Ariza, Gerald Green going to Clippers locker room with Austin Rivers, Blake Griffin in their sights through backdoor.

  • Sharapova, Kerber and Djokovic into 2nd round in AustraliaSharapova, Kerber and Djokovic into 2nd round in Australia

    MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Maria Sharapova, Angelique Kerber and Novak Djokovic ensured there were all kinds of successful comebacks on Day 2 of the Australian Open. Six-time champion Djokovic and 2014 winner Stan Wawrinka returned from long injury layoffs with victories in their first matches since Wimbledon. Sharapova barely missed a beat in her first match back at the Australian Open since a failed doping test in 2016 resulted in a 15-month ban from tennis. One of just two former champions in the women’s draw, Sharapova recovered from an early break in the second set and closed out her 6-1, 6-4 victory over Tatjana Maria with an ace at Margaret Court Arena. She celebrated by twirling, waving and blowing kisses to the crowd. “It’s been a couple of years since I’ve been back here — obviously I wanted to enjoy the moment,” the 2008 Australian Open champion and three-time runner-up said in an on-court TV interview. “It was really meaningful for me to be out here.” Kerber, the 2016 champion, continued her resurgent run with a 6-0, 6-4 win over fellow German Anna-Lena Friedsam. It was extended her streak to 10 consecutive wins, including the Sydney International title last week — her first title since the 2016 U.S. Open. Her ranking slid into the 20s in 2017, but she’s coming back into the kind of form which makes her a title contender. “I’m just enjoying it on court again,” Kerber said. “Something is going on with Australia and me. I love this country — I enjoy my stay, play my best tennis.” Djokovic tweaked his service motion while recovering from an injured right elbow, and used it to good effect in a 6-1, 6-2, 6-4 win over Donald Young, who saved four match points on his own serve but was out in the next game. Djokovic lost in the second round here last year, but won five of the previous six Australian Open titles. “Feels so great to be back here. There’s no better place for me to start than here in Australia,” he said. Wawrinka, who had six months out after surgery on his left knee, beat Lithuania’s Ricardas Berankis 6-3, 6-4, 2-6, 7-6 (2). No. 4-ranked 4-Alexander Zverev beat Thomas Fabbiano 6-1, 7-6 (5), 7-5 and No. 7 David Goffin had a 6-7 (3), 6-3, 6-2, 6-4 win over Matthias Bachinger. No. 20 Roberto Bautista Agut and No. 22 Milos Raonic, a former Wimbledon finalist, were beaten. Bautista Agut lost to fellow Spaniard Fernando Verdasco, a semifinalist here in 2009, and Raonic lost 6-7 (5), 7-5, 6-4, 7-6 (4) to Lukas Lacko. No. 13 Sam Querrey restored some order for the U.S. men with a 6-3, 6-4, 6-2 win over Feliciano Lopez. Two other U.S. contenders, No. 8 Jack Sock and No. 16 John Isner, were out on opening day. Madison Keys also reversed a trend, becoming the only one of the four American women who contested the U.S. Open semifinals last September to reach the second round in Australia. Sloane Stephens, Venus Williams and CoCo Vandeweghe were all eliminated on Day 1, when U.S. women went 1-9. No. 17-seeded Keys, the runner-up at the U.S. Open, had a 6-1, 7-5 win over Wang Qiang. No. 9 Johanna Konta beat Madison Brengle 6-3, 6-1, handing the American women their 10th loss in 11. Konta will next meet Bernarda Pera, a lucky loser in the qualifying tournament, who registered the second win by a U.S. woman when she beat Russian qualifier Anna Blinkova 6-2, 6-2. The American women finished with three wins and 14 losses in round one. Seeded players advancing included No. 1-ranked Karolina Pliskova, No. 8 Caroline Garcia, No. 16 Elena Vesnina, and No. 29 Lucie Safarova. Sharapova was banned for after testing positive for the drug meldonium here in 2016, when she reached the quarterfinals, and finished last year ranked No. 60. The five-time major winner could next meet No. 14-seeded Anastasija Sevastova, who beat her at the U.S. Open last year in her return to a Grand Slam to tournament. After returning in New York, Sharapova is confident she’s prepared again for a major. “I felt like I have got a lot of things out of the way physically and emotionally and mentally last year with — there was a lot of firsts again for me, playing the first tournament, first Grand Slam, and just different feelings and what it would be routinely,” she said. “But it felt pretty routine today.”

  • Orangewood Academy battles to the end, knocks off Rosary (video)Orangewood Academy battles to the end, knocks off Rosary (video)

    GARDEN GROVE – Orangewood Academy’s girls basketball team found its signature victory Monday night thanks to a second-half rally that pushed until the final seconds. Jacqueline Saucedo scored off a rebound with about six seconds left and the No. 7 Spartans knocked a pass out of bounds as time expired for a 55-54 victory against third-ranked Rosary in the Presion Showcase at Orangewood Academy. Rosary led 54-51 after a free throw by Chasey Santos, but Gabriela Rosas scored on a drive with 15.6 seconds left to trim the deficit to one. Orangewood Academy pressed full court and Itzel Rubio forced a turnover on Rosary’s baseline with 12 seconds left. Saucedo grabbed the rebound from the Spartans’ first shot from mid-air under the basket and helped cap a comeback from a 10-point deficit in the first period and an 11-point margin in the third. “We were searching for that signature win over a big-time opponent,” said Oxford Academy coach Leslie Aragon, whose team has lost to Brea Olinda, Sierra Canyon and Los Alamitos. “They’re the defending state Division 3 champ and they’re every bit as good as advertised. … We got a big one after this. We have Fairmont.” Orangewood (11-7) plays host to rival Fairmont Prep on Saturday night while Rosary (11-8) plays at Mater Dei on Thursday. Rosas led the Spartans with 22 points and five steals. She made two of her three 3-pointers in the third quarter to help set the stage for the fourth. The score was tied at 43, 49 and 51 in the final seven minutes. Saucedo finished with 13 points while freshman Aixchel Hernandez scored 8 points off the bench. Rosary’s TCU-bound center Rebekah Obinma was almost unstoppable in the post, finishing with 24 points on 11 of 16 shooting from the floor. She added 14 rebounds and three blocks. Rosary point guard Kate Goostrey scored six of her 12 points in the fourth period while Santos broke a 51-51 tie with a layup with 41 seconds left. In other Presion games: No. 1 Mater Dei 66, Canyon of Canyon Country 41: Freshman Brooke Demetre scored 21 points, including a two 3-pointers, to lead the Monarchs (13-3). Cailyn Crocker (foot) made her Mater Dei debut and scored 13 points. Sonora 66, Foothill Tech 46: Lainie James scored 38 points, including four 3-pointers, to lead the Raiders. Santa Margarita 40, Arcadia 29: Jessica Fracker had 11 points and seven rebounds and Jocelyn Ewell added 10 points to lead the Eagles (11-7), who snapped a three-game losing streak.

  • Miller: Chris Paul returns to face Clippers and emotions run highMiller: Chris Paul returns to face Clippers and emotions run high

    LOS ANGELES — He arrived, officially, as a Rocket. But Chris Paul was back at Staples Center on an emotional Monday as something else, too. As a reminder. A reminder of a more promising time for the Clippers. Of an era when the organization had championship aspirations. Of everything the team did – and, in particular, didn’t do – during Paul’s six seasons here. Because, despite the progress those Clippers made, the steps came with pain. And for a group bouncing back from so far behind, in the end, the progress felt strangely like standing still. That’s what history says, and history generally knows what it’s talking about. History should. It was, after all, there in person. “You’re always judged by wins, and we won a lot of games,” Coach Doc Rivers said. “But we didn’t get it done.” With Paul, the Clippers stopped being a punchline, a position cemented when Steve Ballmer took over as owner from Donald Sterling, the personification of a bad joke. They mattered more than ever, filling the postseason gap vacated by the suddenly flailing Lakers. They were taken seriously, year in and year out, for the first time after four decades of being dismissed as hopeless. There’s nothing minor about any of that, not for a franchise that, all-time, had one recognizable face, and that was the one up in the stands, hidden under a paper bag. So, when Paul was introduced before the game on this passion-filled night, he was warmly cheered without a peep of discernible dissension, this even though he asked the Clippers over the summer to trade him away. Immediately after tipoff, he was booed whenever he handled the ball. But, by the time he made his first 3-pointer and was credited with his first three assists – and all that took barely three minutes – the boos had quieted. Early on, the Clippers honored Paul with a tribute video that generated another warm reaction. From there, things played out like most NBA games do, until the final minutes, when the on-court reactions turned flatly hot, these two teams acting like rivals, rivals that engaged in a summer swap that included eight players. As the Clippers were wrapping up a 113-102 victory, tensions ignited resulting in the ejections of Blake Griffin and Rockets forward Trevor Ariza. Following the game, several Houston players, including Paul, were stopped while attempting to enter the Clippers locker room, apparently looking to continue the confrontation. “Let’s put it like this: Our team was in our locker room,” Rivers said. “I’ll let you do the rest of the investigation.” The Clippers won three playoff series with Paul but never more than one in a single postseason, meaning they were unable to make it even halfway to a title. They always seemed to have a shot with him. Ultimately, though, the Clippers never had a chance, the most lasting impressions of those playoff forays being a blown game against Oklahoma City and a blown series against Houston. “We were an ‘almost’ team,” Rivers said. “We were a team … it’ll haunt me forever because we were close.” They weren’t good enough to produce anything more than disappointment, weren’t heathy enough to put up anything more than a spirited but frequently short-handed fight. Speaking Sunday before the Rockets practiced at UCLA, Paul talked about the “great times” he had with the Clippers and how much he grew while playing here. Of L.A., he said, “This is home.” But he also acknowledged what remains as obvious as all the championship stories lacking in Clippers lore. “We didn’t win it all,” Paul said. “That was the point.” Banners hang over the Lakers when they play in this building. What hangs over the Clippers is something closer to the blade of guillotine, a constant disclaimer that reads like an epitaph: Have never advanced beyond the second round of the playoffs. Not that Paul is to blame. Without him, the Clippers wouldn’t have been good enough to even find out they weren’t quite good enough. “We’re all part of that legacy,” Rivers said. “I don’t think we should separate Chris by himself in that legacy. I’m part of that legacy. D.J. (DeAndre Jordan), Blake and all the guys that were here are part of that legacy.” Paul’s presence Monday – even while in the colors of another team – rekindled a recent past that, like so many memories, will always seem better than it was in reality. “The Oklahoma series … that changed our fortune,” Rivers said. “And then we followed it up with the Houston debacle. You can’t get those back.” Still, this was a night that passed as nostalgic for the Clippers. When you make the playoffs one time in 14 seasons during one stretch and zero times in 15 seasons during another, you cling to whatever good times you can manufacture. See, it takes four series victories in one postseason to win an NBA title. The Clippers, an operation that has been in existence since 1970, have five series victories total. That’s five, as in ever. Five. Period. Paul was here for three of them. Without the orchestration of this future Hall of Fame point guard, those three never would have happened. So, yeah, he should have been greeted warmly. About an hour before the game, Paul emerged from the Houston locker room to meet with a large contingent from the Brotherhood Crusade, an organization that strives to improve life for the underserved. He worked closely with the group while he was here and continues to do so, Paul telling those gathered Monday that he left only the Clippers, not the Brotherhood. When he was done speaking, everyone posed for a photo, Paul standing right there in the middle, surrounded by dozens of smiles. In unison, they all said, “Thank you, Chris,” the sentiment sweet and sincere enough to carry throughout the rest of the night, until the game was over, until the emotions had settled.

  • Ducks’ Andrew Cogliano on end of consecutive games streak: ‘It’s a tough pill to swallow’Ducks’ Andrew Cogliano on end of consecutive games streak: ‘It’s a tough pill to swallow’

    DENVER — The more he spoke and the more the significance of what he had accomplished set in when discussing it, the more Andrew Cogliano struggled to keep his composure and maintain a cool exterior. It was nearly impossible to do, just as it was improbable that a player who – in this era, when going a season without missing a game is a feat – could do so over 11 seasons, as the Ducks’ respected winger did. And while Cogliano always downplayed his consecutive games streak at each milestone, it mattered to him. “Yeah, it’s something I think I don’t really talk about too much as I’ve been going through it because you’re in the process of it,” Cogliano said as his teammates warmed up on the ice prior to the Ducks’ game against Colorado on Monday. “But it’s a tough pill to swallow, I’m not going to lie.” His emotions then bubbled to the surface. “I think I’ve played hard,” he continued, his voice cracking. “I’ve battled. And I’m a professional and someone that – you know I’ve played a long time. I miss the game.” Starting from his NHL debut on Oct. 4, 2007, Cogliano had not missed a game until he nervously watched the Ducks play Monday from the press box high inside Pepsi Center. His streak, which reached a point where it was realistic to think Doug Jarvis’ record of 964 games could be caught, had reached its end. It was over at 830 games on a snowy Monday in Colorado, not because of an injury or an illness that kept him from playing, nor poor play that made his coach sit him out. It ended as the result of a suspension, a two-game ban that Cogliano realizes came of his doing but a punishment of an act he feels is unjust. The NHL’s Department of Player Safety – now led by former Ducks enforcer George Parros – handed its ruling down Sunday, determining that Cogliano made substantial head contact Saturday with his hit on the Kings’ Adrian Kempe. It is the first fine or suspension that Cogliano has incurred. And it is his otherwise exemplary play that the winger feels was ignored following a hearing in which he argued his case, that the hit itself wasn’t worthy of further supplementary discipline beyond the interference minor penalty he received. Nothing he felt was worth more than a warning or a fine. “First and foremost, I probably initiated contact too late,” Cogliano said. “I’ve been very open about that with this process. I made a mistake at that time. As I think about the hit though, I watch it and I still see that my body doesn’t change through the process of it. I think my shoulder’s low, my elbow’s low. My knees are bent and I’m in a pretty set position. “And as it evolves, he (Kempe) tries to make a play across my body, which ends up maybe initiating some head contact near my upper back area. That’s what I see.” Repeatedly, Cogliano stressed that he was relieved to see Kempe return to action and finish the game. He’s insistent that the hit was “debatable” but knows he got caught up in an emotional game and put himself in that situation. “It’s something I’m going to have to live with, and I will,” he said. “From my end, there’s zero intent to do any sort of head contact or hit a person to injure him,” Cogliano said. “It was a situation where, like I said, I admitted to initiating contact too late. And I think it is something that happened that ended up being very unfortunate for me.” Cogliano’s streak is the fourth-longest in NHL history, trailing only Jarvis, Garry Unger (914 games) and Steve Larmer (884). The possibility existed of him passing Jarvis during the 2019-20 season. Though it doesn’t count, Cogliano has also played in 60 playoff games without missing one. Behind the scenes, the Ducks were upset with the ruling. Some of that anger, which Cogliano himself had among his varied emotions, was made public. Defenseman Francois Beauchemin tweeted, “11 years, 830 straight games. I can’t get over it. 2 game suspension for that? Really??” Rickard Rakell simply said, “I’ve never played a game with this team where he’s not playing.” “We all know that he’s not the guy that goes out and looks for the dirty hits,” Rakell added. “When they make their decision, there’s nothing you can do about it really. It’s tough. It’s sad that his streak has to end because of that.” Not having a pregame routine to follow Monday was something Cogliano acknowledged he had difficulty dealing with. Showing up every day, even for practice or an off-ice workout, is part of his DNA. “I was just kind of hanging around,” he said. “Got up early and had some phone calls.” “It shows how much you miss the game,” Cogliano continued. “It shows how much you actually love the game. That’s what shines through. Even coming to the rink now and watching warm-ups. It probably takes it back to when you’re a kid, watching when you’re younger and going with your dad. “It’s tough. I love this game. … To go out like this and maybe have a chance to do something special, it’s hard.” An appeal to NHL commissioner Gary Bettman could have been made by Cogliano through the players’ union, but he ultimately chose not to. The feeling is that it would be in vain, with Bettman having a long track record of upholding Player Safety rulings. “It was a consideration,” Cogliano said. “I want to move on. It’s been a good run. I’m proud. There’s more important things right now, and that’s our team and not being a distraction. And that’s winning.”

The woman, identified as Jennifer Lawson, who is in her 40s, suffered broken bones in the crash, which occurred at 10:37 p.m. Wednesday at the southwest corner of Euclid Street and Francis Drive, said Anaheim police Sgt. Daron Wyatt. The driver and a passenger of the SUV abandoned their vehicle and remain at large. They were only described by witnesses as two males. She was injured when a black Chevrolet Suburban traveling south on Euclid Street lost control, jumped the curb and struck her before crashing into a light pole. The woman was pinned against her own parked car, and the impact was so strong it set off her airbags. At the time, Lawson had been standing on the sidewalk near a makeshift memorial established for a motorcycle-riding friend killed at the same spot a few weeks ago, Wyatt said. Lawson was taken to a hospital with serious but not life-threatening injuries (she has a broken pelvis) and is expected to survive. (credit: CBS) “The car skidded out of control, hit the curb, crashed right into the pole,” said Jason Rodriguez, a friend of the woman who was helping her put together the memorial at the time of the crash. “I jumped into the street, she jumped into the parking lot. She got the fish-end of his car, (it) came in and hit her up against the front end of hers, took out her car too.” The driver and passenger ran away, Rodriguez added. There was no description of the suspects. (©2017 CBS Local Media, a division of CBS Radio Inc. All Rights Reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed.

  • Anaheim Hosts Massive Outreach Event For Santa Ana River’s Homeless PopulationAnaheim Hosts Massive Outreach Event For Santa Ana River’s Homeless Population

    ANAHEIM (CBSLA) – Dozens of agencies and nonprofit groups came together Tuesday to provide assistance to hundreds of homeless people who are being cleared from encampments along the Santa Ana River. Between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m., 29 agencies and nonprofits were working together to provide services such as transitional housing, emergency shelter beds, drug treatment, vaccines, food, pet services and food to homeless people who have been living on the Santa Ana River Trail in Anaheim. The purpose of Tuesday’s outreach is “to help as many people as possible off the river trail as part of efforts to phase out encampments along the flood control channel,” the city of Anaheim said in a news release. The homeless crisis in Orange County came to the forefront in September, when the Anaheim City Council declared a state of emergency for the more than 400 people who have been living in a tent city in the shadow of Angel Stadium. On Dec. 5, the council authorized spending up to $100,000 for Tuesday’s outreach. Also in September, the Santa Ana City Council also declared the homeless issue around the Santa Ana Civic Center a public health and safety crisis, while the O.C. Board of Supervisors approved a plan to increase law enforcement along the riverbed from Santa Ana to Anaheim. In November, O.C. permanently closed the west side of the flood control channel between Santa Ana and Fountain Valley, and sheriff’s deputies began to clear the encampments. Deputies have been strictly enforcing public access hours along the Santa Ana River Trail. Access is only allowed between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. During the clearing process, authorities reportedly found about 1,000 bikes hidden in a tunnel system under a concrete flood control channel. Some of agencies taking part in Tuesday’s effort include the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs, the Salvation Army, the Orange County Rescue Mission and the Orange County Health Care Agency.

  • Angels Not Concerned About Report On Shohei Ohtani’s ElbowAngels Not Concerned About Report On Shohei Ohtani’s Elbow

    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA)  —  The Los Angeles Angels on Wednesday expressed no concern over a report about their new pitching and hitting sensation Shohei Ohtani. The Japanese import sought by all 30 MLB teams reportedly has a slight tear in a right-elbow ligament. The team said it was consistent with the right elbow of any 23-year-old pitcher. Yahoo Sports reported Tuesday that Ohtani has a first-degree UCL sprain in his throwing arm. “The only understanding we have is [it’s] really just something that’s behind him,” Manager Mike Scioscia said Wednesday at baseball’s winter meetings in Orlando. Scioscia added: “There’s no concern, and there’s no restrictions. He’ll be full go in spring training.” The elbow issue was told to all 30 MLB teams and that information didn’t seem to deter anyone from wanting to sign the two-way player. The Yahoo report added, Ohtani received a platelet-rich plasma injection to relieve elbow pain in October.

  • Bat Infected With Rabies Found Outside Anaheim Shopping CenterBat Infected With Rabies Found Outside Anaheim Shopping Center

    ANAHEIM (CBSLA) – Health officials are issuing a warning after a bat that was found in an Anaheim shopping center parking lot has tested positive for rabies. The bat was discovered Tuesday in the parking lot of the Canyon Terrace Shopping Center at 100 North Tustin Avenue, according to the Orange County Health Care Agency. The bat later tested positive for the rabies virus. Anyone who came in contact with the bat or knows someone who did is asked call OCHCA at 714-834-8180 or 714-834-7792. Rabies is found in an animal’s saliva and can be transmitted by a bite from an infected animal, OCHCA reports. In rare cases, it can also be transmitted via the animal’s saliva by contamination from the eyes, mouth or an open wound. Most human cases in the U.S. are transmitted from bats. Once a person begins showing symptoms of rabies, the results are nearly always fatal, OCHCA says. For more information on rabies, click here.

  • Lewis Scores Winner In Shootout As Kings Down Ducks 2-1Lewis Scores Winner In Shootout As Kings Down Ducks 2-1

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Trevor Lewis scored in the fourth round of a shootout, and the Los Angeles Kings ended a three-game losing streak with a 2-1 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Saturday night. Dustin Brown scored with 1:32 remaining in regulation as Los Angeles won for the second time in its last seven home games (2-5-0). Jonathan Quick broke a six-game losing streak, matching the longest of his career after going 0-4-2 in 2011-12 and 0-3-3 in 2014-15, by making 25 saves. Anze Kopitar also scored in the shootout and Quick stopped Kevin Roy’s shot for the 2-1 win. Nick Ritchie scored for the Ducks, who opened a six-game road trip, their longest of the season, by failing to earn a point away from home for the first time in five games. Ryan Miller stopped 33 shots for Anaheim in his first start after missing five games with a lower-body injury. Miller somehow stopped Brown’s wraparound shot while facedown on the ice, but had no chance of keeping out the followup shot to tie the game at 1. It was Brown’s ninth goal. The Ducks jumped out in front when Ritchie scored through traffic at 10:08 in the first off Corey Perry’s pass. It was Ritchie’s third goal off the season, while Perry picked up his 10th point in his last 10 games. Already playing without top forwards Ryan Getzlaf (face), Ryan Kesler (hip surgery) and Patrick Eaves (illness), the Ducks were dealt another blow as Rickard Rakell did not play because of an upper-body injury. Rakell, who leads the team with eight goals and 18 points, is day-to-day. The second installment of the Freeway Faceoff this season got off to a typically feisty start, with Kurtis MacDermid and Mike Liambas fighting after 1:53. Oscar Fantenberg and Ducks iron man Andrew Cogliano then traded punches at 4:40. Kevin Bieksa then dropped Andy Andreoff with a single devastating right hand at 9:25. Andreoff did not return. NOTES: The Ducks recalled Kalle Kossila from their AHL affiliate in San Diego to fill out the roster with Rakell hurt. . Kings F Torrey Mitchell is still waiting on a work visa before he can make his debut after being acquired from Montreal in a trade on Thursday. UP NEXT Ducks: Visit the Chicago Blackhawks on Monday as they continue a six-game trip. Kings: Visit the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday to begin a four-game trip.

  • New Threat Made Against Anaheim, Buena Park High SchoolsNew Threat Made Against Anaheim, Buena Park High Schools

    ANAHEIM (CBSLA) – Authorities are investigating a new threat Thursday against two of the four Orange County schools that were previously named in an online shooting threat last week allegedly made by a student who was arrested. The new school-shooting post, which also was shared on social media, was traced back to Buena Park and claimed the wrong person has been arrested in connection with the violence threatened at the four schools, according to the Anaheim Police Department. The post said a shooting spree was to be carried out at Anaheim and Buena Park high schools Friday, which is when the original threat said the shootings would happen, but authorities said there is no credible threat. Still, authorities vowed a stepped-up presence for the rest of the week at the four Orange County schools named in the original threat, despite the arrest of a student who said the post was only a joke. A 14-year-old freshman at Western High School was arrested Tuesday night for allegedly making the threat through an Instagram post, according to Kristina Hamm of the Anaheim Police Department. The teen threatened to commit acts of violence through multiple school shootings at his school, Magnolia High School in Anaheim, Cypress High School and Buena Park High School, Hamm said. Anaheim police Sgt. Daron Wyatt said Wednesday the arrested student “was super remorseful and he had no means to carry it (the threat) out.” “It was not a legitimate threat,” Wyatt said. “He didn’t realize the ramifications of it, but the message we like to get out is that it’s not a joke and we will prosecute pranks like this to the fullest extent of the law.” The online threat contended that the shootings would be carried out Friday. Despite the student’s arrest, some parents said Wednesday they were still concerned about the safety of their children — particularly on Friday. Police insisted, however, that the campuses are safe. “The investigation has not revealed the student had the actual means or capability to carry out the threats and the schools are considered secure and safe,” Hamm said.

  • High School Rebrands Mascot Over Confederacy ConcernsHigh School Rebrands Mascot Over Confederacy Concerns

    ANAHEIM (CBSLA) – Savanna High School’s nickname will continue to be Rebels, but the school board has decided to remove any perception of ties between the Anaheim school’s mascot, Johnny Rebel, and the Confederacy. After hearing from about two dozen students and alumni during a special board meeting held Monday on campus, district trustees opted to follow the wishes of the student body and re-brand the mascot to eliminate references to a Civil War-era soldier, The Orange County Register reported. The issue was posed to the students in October in what the Anaheim Union High School District Board of Trustees considered a “teachable moment” for students and resulted in Monday’s special meeting in which the decision was made to rebrand. The district estimates changes would cost about $51,000 but was not specific about what the rebranding would entail, The Register said. More than 130 people gathered for the meeting. A member of the first graduating class, Jeanne Tenno said the slogan “Rebel Pride” was not about anything related to the Confederacy, The Register reported. “We did not celebrate the South,” she told the newspaper. “We celebrated our sports victories and stood together in defeat.” Students discussed the issue in classes and held a campus vote, and 56 percent supported altering the mascot, according to The Register.

  • High School Mascot Controversy In AnaheimHigh School Mascot Controversy In Anaheim

    ANAHEIM (CBSLA) — A rebellion against Johnny Rebel? As KCAL9/CBS2’s Michele Gile reports, some students and parents want Savanna High School in Anaheim to get rid of the mascot — Johnny Rebel, a Confederate soldier. “In my family we’ve all been Rebels — my mother was a rebel, my aunts, uncles and cousins,” said student Jocelyn Perez. The history of Johnny Rebel, the Confederate soldier mascot at Savanna and the debate over whether to get rid of it has become a campus-wide civics lesson. “Someone who doesn’t like black people. He doesn’t like them at all. Doesn’t want them in the country,” said Savanna senior Matthew Thomas. Thomas, his brother, father and a few other students brought their concerns to the Anaheim Union High School board which will vote next month on the fate of the Rebels mascot. “They could have made their own decision right there at this time without listening to students but they wanted to get student input,” said Superintendent Michael Matsuda. So, for the past few weeks, history teachers have guided students through lessons on the controversy surrounding Johnny Rebel, researching slavery and the Confederacy while focusing on awareness and understanding. “I think that we are putting them in a position to be confident to have a conversation about it as opposed to having an argument about it,” said a Savanna teacher. One of the options before the school board is to rebrand the mascot and/or logo. Something Perez wants. I think that Rebels isn’t the problem I think that the Johnny Rebel that people keep referring to is and that’s not what the school is about,” said Perez. It needs to be gone, says local minister and Savanna father Dion Thomas. A few years ago a deteriorating Confederate soldier statue on campus was removed, so now it’s time to change the mascot he says. “Johnny Rebel is everywhere,” said Thomas. “It’s on their uniforms. The Confederate soldier is on their uniforms. It’s on their cheer uniforms. It’s on their T-shirts. It’s everywhere.” Some of the students are expected at the November school board meeting and are expected to address the board. A decision on the mascot could come as early as Nov. 2.

  • Cool Weather Helps Crews Make Progress On Anaheim Hills WildfireCool Weather Helps Crews Make Progress On Anaheim Hills Wildfire

    ANAHEIM HILLS (CBSLA) – Firefighters continue to make headway on the devastating 8,000-acre Canyon Fire 2 in Anaheim Hills, which forced thousands of people to flee their homes this week. (CBS2) Anaheim Fire & Rescue reported Wednesday morning that the blaze was 45 percent contained. The fire has destroyed 15 homes and damaged 12 other structures. Officials were expecting cooler weather conditions Wednesday to cooperate with the firefight. Full containment of the blaze was slated for Saturday. “Weather has turned favorable with a marine layer, winds from the ocean and high humidity overnight, boding well for progress on containment today,” AF&R said in an update. Evacuations remained in place along a stretch of Santa Ana Canyon Road from Woodcreek Road to Gypsum Canyon Road in Anaheim Hills. On Tuesday night, evacuations were lifted for Anaheim. At the height of the blaze Monday, 5,000 homes in Anaheim Hills, Orange and Tustin were under evacuation orders. The 241 Toll Road remains closed from the 91 Freeway to the 261 Toll Road. Chapman University in Orange was closed Monday and Tuesday due to smoky air from the blaze, but classes are scheduled to resume Wednesday. Santiago Canyon College will remain closed Wednesday. Orange Unified School District officials said El Modena High School, Santiago Charter Middle School and El Rancho Charter Middle School will all reopen Wednesday, but six elementary schools — Anaheim Hills, Canyon Rim, Chapman Hills, Linda Vista, Panorama and Running Springs — will be closed. All other schools in the district will be open. About 1,660 firefighters were battling the blaze with 13 choppers and five air tankers. The Canyon Fire 2 erupted Monday, about a mile from the area scorched by the recent Canyon Fire, which broke out Sept. 25 and blackened more than 2,600 acres. Smoke from the new blaze could be seen for miles in all directions Monday, prompting warnings from health officials for people to remain indoors. The fire initially broke out near the 91 Freeway east of Gypsum Canyon Road, near the Coal Canyon flashpoint of September’s Canyon Fire, according to the Orange County Fire Authority. But while last month’s Canyon Fire burned east, winds of about 25 miles per hour pushed its sequel to the west on Monday, prompting mandatory evacuation orders for residents south of the Riverside Freeway and west of the 241 toll road.
