An Anaheim councilwoman is being asked to resign following her online remarks that the fatal police shooting of a 21-year-old man had "saved us a trial. " Lucille Kring, who is running for mayor in the resort city, quickly apologized for her comments, but some residents said it was too late and urged her to step down instead. The relationship between police and residents in the densely packed core of Orange County's largest city has been strained for years and came to a head in the summer of 2012 when a series of shootings ignited days of street protests and angry demonstrations.

CALGARY, Canada - Two weeks removed from a lopsided beat-down against a team all but out of the playoff running, the Ducks returned to the Saddledome on Tuesday and practiced for more than an hour in anticipation of the rematch. "We practice like we play a lot. I wanted to make sure we practiced hard and were ready for tomorrow," said Ducks Coach Bruce Boudreau.

An Anaheim police K-9 handler has been reunited with his German shepherd partner, Bruno, after the dog was shot in the face last week by a suspect. Officer R.J. Young and his newborn daughter visited Bruno for 30 minutes at Yorba Regional Animal Hospital late Monday. Young had postponed seeing Bruno because of the dog's weak lungs and concerns that would be too excited during a visit. “The best part of my day was when I got to lay down with him for 10 [minutes],” Young said, in a statement posted on the Orange County Police Canine Assn.'s Facebook page . Bruno suffered a shattered jaw as a result of the bullet's impact, but the association said he was making substantial progress.

A 21-year-old woman whose naked body was found on a conveyor belt at an Anaheim trash-sorting facility may have spent her last days and nights inside a second-floor motel room on a densely packed stretch of Beach Boulevard. Jarrae Nykkole Estepp had become a regular in the aging commercial district in recent weeks, walking the busy boulevard. Only blocks from Disneyland, the street is defined by strip malls, fast-food restaurants and motels from a bygone era. Detectives said their efforts to retrace Estepp's final steps in the hope of finding her killer have brought them to the neighborhood, long known as a haven for prostitution.

Usually, it's Dustin Penner seeking to provide the creative response to a question. But when the former Ducks forward was pulled off the Honda Center ice March 4 and told by General Manager Bob Murray he'd been traded to the Washington Capitals, Penner did the asking: Why? "Cap room," Murray replied. Penner's reunion season with the Ducks ended in a deal for a fourth-round draft pick the Ducks then dealt to the Dallas Stars for defenseman Stephane Robidas . Penner and the Caps visit Anaheim on Tuesday night.

The stretch run has such a way of magnifying the good and the bad. For instance, a puck banks off the skate of Kings defenseman Jake Muzzin past his goalie Martin Jones and a segment of Kings fans want Muzzin put on the next plane back to the minors. The Ducks beat the Kings, 2-1, Saturday night at Staples Center, putting together consecutive victories after Wednesday's loss at Calgary. That 7-2 pratfall against the Flames now appears more like a wake-up call at a key time rather than a precursor of doom.
