The fact that "we have no tradition is our best hope." So wrote the great Pasadena designer, ceramicist and teacher Ernest A. Batchelder in an essay first published in a 1907 issue of Gustav Stickley's influential Craftsman magazine. The plural pronoun in Batchelder's bold, even paradoxical boast was meant to describe what was then occurring around him, as California's astonishing natural beauty and absence of calcified social conventions combined to stimulate a unique aesthetic moment.

It's bad news for California when a big company moves out of state. And it's even more troubling when many of the employees decide to leave too. Nissan North America's Gardena site should be just about empty after today; the company is moving its headquarters to the Nashville area. About 550 of the 1,300 workers at the Gardena offices are following their jobs to Tennessee, and that 42% retention rate far exceeds the norm for such long moves.

There have been moments in which the Clippers and Golden State Warriors have expressed displeasure with each other, leaving many to think the two teams have taken issue with the other's perceived antics. The Clippers didn't like the way the Warriors celebrated after two wins over them. The Warriors didn't like how the Clippers went to "Lob City" mode in a win. After the Clippers beat the Warriors by 26 points at Staples Center, Golden State Coach Mark Jackson said this after the game: "What you've got to do as a coach, as a player, is just let it soak in and remember it," Jackson said.

Golden State Vintners Inc., which supplies wine and grapes to California wineries, said Tuesday it has received two takeover offers, including one from its chief executive. The board is evaluating the offer from CEO Jeffrey B. O'Neill, Golden State Vintners said in a statement. A company spokesman declined to name the second potential buyer.

A judge Friday ordered the U.S. to pay Golden State Bancorp Inc. $381 million for breaking a promise of special regulatory treatment made during the savings and loan crisis of the 1980s. U.S. Claims Court Judge Loren A. Smith, saying he wished he had power to order a larger award, gave the San Francisco-based thrift less than half the $909 million he had awarded in a 1999 ruling. A federal appeals court said that amount was too large and told Smith to recalculate it.

Marc Jackson's scream seems to start in the soles of his sneakers. The noise shoots through his body and explodes into the quiet Oakland Arena as he grabs yet another rebound. Moments later, he fights two New Jersey Nets for a loose ball. When it's knocked out of bounds and no foul is called, Jackson gives the referee a pained look while letting out another guttural yowl.
