Brea-Olinda pitcher Josh Egan's speedy recovery after undergoing his second arthroscopic knee surgery three weeks ago is just what the Wildcats needed. Egan (3-0) gave up seven hits, retiring the final eight batters as Brea-Olinda defeat Western, 5-4, in an Orange League game Friday at Brookhurst Park. "It's three weeks ago to the day that he had the last surgery on his left knee," Brea-Olinda Coach Steve Hiskey said. "Now that's a competitor."

The Wilshire Grand Hotel and its 17 unionized laundry workers agreed to a contract Friday, ending a three-month lockout that fueled tensions in a larger hotel labor dispute. The six-year contract raises wages by 25%, or $2.55 an hour, and more than doubles the hotel's pension contribution. It prevents the hotel from contracting out work. And there's a bonus for the largely immigrant workforce: a full day's pay for any worker sworn in as a U.S. citizen.

The hotel workers union staged a rowdy all-day protest Thursday outside the Wilshire Grand in downtown Los Angeles, injecting some drama into a long-running dispute with nine luxury hotels and prompting clusters of conference guests to walk out in support. Conner Everts, executive director of the Southern California Watershed Alliance, lost a few panelists and scores of attendees at his long-planned conference on water policies.

The case of 17 locked-out laundry workers was pressed Friday in a complaint to the National Labor Relations Board and on the steps of their former employer, the Wilshire Grand hotel in downtown Los Angeles. Separately, hotel workers in Washington were to attend picket-captain training sessions today in preparation for a strike. The hotel workers union, Unite Here, is pushing for a new, two-year contract for thousands of hotel employees in Los Angeles, Washington and San Francisco.
