A person was hit by a car and killed early Sunday while crossing the 110 Freeway on foot, the California Highway Patrol reported. The collision happened around 4:30 a.m. on the southbound lanes of the highway, north of Century Boulevard. CHP officers arrived to find the male victim in the road. The car, a 2000 Toyota, was on the right shoulder of the highway. Its driver, a 36-year-old Los Angeles man, was not injured. In footage captured after the incident by LLN videographer Scott Lane, a man who appears to be the driver says he was trying to avoid hitting two people who were running across the highway.

"He said he felt Tony's back patio could be a satellite extension of our pub at Golden Road. And the vibe is really similar.

DALLAS - The Ducks have been here before, and not just in the physical sense. Of course they've been to American Airlines Center, where they lost the third and fourth games of their playoff series against the Dallas Stars and surrendered the edge they'd earned by winning the first two games at home. But by overpowering Dallas, 6-2, at Honda Center on Friday, the Ducks took a 3-2 series lead and moved into position to close out the series Sunday. They've been there, too, needing a road win to wrap up a playoff series, but didn't do it. It was just last season.

The stores, most belonging to large chains, reported long lines of shoppers waiting at opening time. Many said that business was as good as or better on Sunday than on weekdays.

In Britain, Sunday once was sacrosanct. There were restrictions on the operation of shops, movie theaters, pubs, restaurants, sports events. The rules narrowed the options of people here on Sundays to churchgoing, prayer-reading, long walks and dining on the traditional roast meat, often with relatives. But Britain's blue laws are going the way of bowler hats and winning cricket teams--much to the delight of a large majority of the populace.

Dodgers shortstop Hanley Ramirez said Sunday he is prepared to return to the lineup this week despite a sore right shoulder but said he hopes the discomfort does not linger. "Hopefully, it's not something I have to deal with the rest of the season," he said. Ramirez, who leads the team with a 1.050 on-base-plus-slugging percentage, jammed his right shoulder Aug. 4. He completed a full workout Sunday but said he still felt discomfort when extending his arm on his swing and when throwing to first base.

Brown's move comes after a three-member board that he appointed found that “a strike will cause significant harm to the public's health, safety and welfare.”   In a statement released Friday afternoon, Brown held out hope that transit workers and BART management could work out a contract deal before Sunday....

DALLAS - It's taken them longer than they wanted, but the Ducks have found a formula to beat the fast, physical Dallas Stars. Now it's just a matter of proving it translates to the enemy ground of American Airlines Center. "You want to finish it here. That's our mind-set," Ducks forward Corey Perry said Saturday. Friday's 6-2 victory in Anaheim gave the Western Conference top-seeded Ducks a 3-2 lead in the first-round playoff series with Game 6 Sunday in Dallas, where both of the Ducks' losses have occurred.

One helped revolutionize the church, becoming an enduring icon among progressive Roman Catholics who view religion as a vehicle for justice and peace. The other figured in a societal revolution outside the church, earning the adulation of conservatives by battling communism and contributing to the downfall of the Soviet Union. On Sunday, Pope Francis will canonize two pontiffs - John XXIII and John Paul II - in a ceremony here, marking the first time that two popes were made saints at the same time.

Picking up where they left off in February, the two teams in Super Bowl XLVIII, Seattle and Denver, open the 2014 NFL season with blockbuster games. The league released its schedule Wednesday, revealing the defending champion Seahawks will play host to Green Bay in the opener Thursday, Sept. 4, and Indianapolis will play at the Broncos in the opening Sunday night game. Packers-Seahawks is a rematch of a 2012 "Fail Mary" game won by Seattle on the final play, a controversial touchdown pass that from every camera angle looked to be an interception by Green Bay. Replacement officials called it a touchdown for the Seahawks, however, and that game proved to be the final straw that ended the officiating lockout.

Gather 'round for a history lesson, of bright playoff campaigns gone bad . . . and gone south, fast. Sunday night's debacle at San Jose wasn't the first time the Kings have given up seven consecutive goals in a playoff game. It happened during, of all things, the Wayne Gretzky era when his former team, the Edmonton Oilers, beat the Kings, 7-0, in Game 1 of a second-round series in 1990. That team featured Gretzky, Luc Robitaille (now a team president), Rob Blake (now a Kings assistant general manager)

In the tradition of Helmut Newton's "SUMO," the new volume is about 20-by-27 inches and 476 pages deep.

Fox's "Family Guy" and ABC's "Resurrection" were Sunday night's highest-rated network shows among key young adults, though it appears that golf-boosted CBS had the best ratings overall.  "Family Guy" scored a rating of 2.1 among key 18- to 49-year-old viewers, according to early numbers from Nielsen. Though Peter Griffin et al were down 9% from last week, the animated comedy was the top nonsports program on the major networks in the advertiser-coveted age group.  In 18-49, a ratings point equals roughly 1.3 million viewers.  PHOTOS: Behind the scenes of movies and TV "Resurrection," ABC's drama in which residents of Arcadia, Mo., are visited by dead relatives, earned a 2.0, down 9% week-to-week.

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Like John Travolta's character in “Saturday Night Fever,” Jordan Spieth strutted down the Augusta National practice range, one confident stride after the next. While onlookers applauded, Spieth high-fived Sean Foley, the swing coach for Justin Rose. After reaching the practice green, Spieth bantered with playing partner Bubba Watson. He appeared completely in his element, a 20-year-old ready to prove that experience matters as much as the color of your shirt.
