For Chasten Bowen, news that France is negotiating with the U.S. to pay reparations to Holocaust survivors who were transported on French rail cars to Nazi concentration camps during World War II comes too late. “I'm just about ready to leave this world,” said the 89-year-old Anaheim resident. “If there's money available, there are others who need it worse than I do.” Stuart Eizenstat, a Washington lawyer who advises the State Department on Holocaust issues, said Friday that the French government entered into formal talks with the U.S. State Department on Feb. 6 regarding reparations and hopes to wrap up an agreement by the end of the year.

The Los Angeles City Council confirmed Marcie Edwards as the new general manager of the Department of Water and Power on Friday, tapping the Anaheim city manager to take the helm of the municipal utility as it grapples with multiple controversies. Edwards, who was recommended for the $345,000-a-year job last month by Mayor Eric Garcetti, previously ran Anaheim's utility and worked at the DWP for more than two decades before that -- beginning with the job of clerk typist, which she took at the age of 19.   She will be the first woman to head the agency, the largest municipally owned utility in the country.

When Corey Perry extended his hand to Stephane Robidas on Thursday, for once it wasn't in anger. The combative players have gotten under each other's skin frequently over the years, but they put their hostilities aside when the Ducks acquired Robidas from Dallas this week. "He came and shook my hand and it's all good," Robidas said after his first practice with his new team. "He's a competitor. He's a great player. And playing against him, you've always got to watch him. It's not easy to play against him. I'm just happy that I don't have to watch him anymore.

In the wake of two controversial police shootings, Anaheim is launching a pilot citizens review board that would help monitor the city's Police Department. The nine-member board, appointed by the city manager, will be selected using a lottery system with representatives coming from four neighborhood council areas. The panel will provide recommendations to city officials, issue annual reports and conduct community outreach, according to the staff report. City Manager Marcie Edwards said she expects to have board members in place by summer -- two years after residents took to the streets in protest after the fatal shootings of Manuel Diaz and Joel Acevedo.

TEMPE, Ariz. - Angels owner Arte Moreno met with officials from the City of Tustin last week to discuss the possibility of building a new baseball stadium, a team spokesman confirmed Saturday. One potential site would be the decommissioned Marine Corps Air Station, which would be accessible via the 5, 405 and 55 Freeways and is across the street from the Tustin Metrolink train station. "We did have an initial meeting with Tustin," said Marie Garvey, a consultant retained by the Angels to handle stadium negotiation issues.

SOCHI, Russia - Based on Jeff Carter's hat trick and Drew Doughty's game-opening goal in Canada's 6-0 Olympic victory over Austria on Friday, you'd never know the Kings are one of the NHL's lowest-scoring teams. Carter, who began Friday's game as Canada's 13th forward, and standout defenseman Doughty have managed to leave the Kings' offensive struggles behind in North America. Carter's hat trick was a natural one - three straight goals - and Ducks center Ryan Getzlaf increased the Southern California hockey presence by scoring a short-handed goal to help Canada improve to 2-0 in pool play.

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Angels owner Arte Moreno described negotiations with Anaheim for a new stadium lease as "at a stalemate," but stopped short of saying he was aggressively pursuing a new home for the team. "We haven't crossed that line yet," Moreno said Friday during the team's first spring-training workout. "In September, we thought we had an outline for a deal … but the reality is, we have not been able to get it done. " The Anaheim City Council approved the framework of a deal in which the Angels would spend $150 million to renovate 48-year-old Angel Stadium, the fourth-oldest park in baseball, in exchange for a 66-year, $1-a-year lease to develop 155 acres of land in the parking lot. The team's current lease expires in 2029.

NASHVILLE - By making their final impression before the Winter Olympics break another case of imposing their will at crunch time, the Ducks have nearly three weeks to savor their labor. "That was us," Ducks forward Corey Perry said of the three-goal, third-period binge that answered a Nashville Predators tying goal near the start of the period. "We didn't sit back and wait. We kept going at 'em. " That style defined the Ducks in their sprint to the NHL's best record (41-14-5)
