    LOS ANGELES — The hepatitis A outbreak in California that has claimed 17 lives may not have peaked and could take a year or more to abate, health officials said Thursday. The contagious, liver-damaging illness has infected at least 568 people since November, mainly in San Diego, Santa Cruz and Los Angeles counties. People without symptoms can carry the illness, and health officials suspect that transients in San Diego County spread it through other homeless populations around the state. More than 480 cases of the illness, including all 17 deaths, have occurred in San Diego County, which declared a public...

    Could the NFL really send the Chargers back to San Diego? It's something being discussed, according to longtime NFL reporter Don Banks. The former Sports Illustrated reporter, who has worked for NFL Media and currently writes for The Athletic, told a San Diego radio station on Thursday the NFL never wanted to lose San Diego as a market and could force Chargers owner Dean Spanos to take the team back. "I have been painted a picture from people I’ve talked to that the league was sympathetic … to Dean Spanos’ plight," Banks told The Mighty 1090. "Feels like he had...

    The San Diego Comic-Con (which, believe it or not, used to actually feature comic books) is an annual celebrity fest these days. One such notable, Liev Schreiber, was in attendance this year, partly to promote, but also to parent. Schreiber took his young sons to the entertainment spectacle this year, both in costume. His oldest son, 9-year-old Sasha, went dressed as a Jedi, and his youngest, 8-year-old Kai, decided to channel the unfettered persona of Harley Quinn. As one would quickly assume, the child’s costume choice and the parent’s willingness to let him go as he pleased, inspired a fair...

    As debate in the nation’s capital has focused on health care, Russia and secret tapes, President Donald Trump’s signature proposal — building a “big, beautiful wall” on America’s southern border — has faded from the spotlight. But preparations are quietly moving forward to start the first wall-related construction on California soil in the next few months, in an effort to translate campaign rally applause lines into cold, hard concrete. Construction is scheduled to begin on four to eight wall prototypes by “late summer,” acting Border Patrol Chief Carla Provost said at a recent congressional hearing. They’ll each be 30 feet...

This plan doesn’t include classes on Christianity, Judaism, or any other religion. The school district conducted a survey to see how much bullying occurred because of student’s Islamic faith and found only seven instances...
