    Avalon Lafosse, 1st teen to win a Segerstrom Center for the Arts leadership award, is out to save the world through art therapy
    In the midst of high school graduation ceremonies, it seems almost too early to introduce a student about to enter her senior year. Then again, perhaps it’s the perfect time.
    On Tuesday, June 4, 16-year-old Avalon Lafosse will become the first teenager to receive a Segerstrom Center for the Arts leadership award.
    The cool thing is that the award isn’t just about Lafosse’s personal artistic accomplishments, although there is that. It’s also about how she teaches art to kid

    Could Anthony Davis’ game-winner knock the wind out the never-say-die Denver Nuggets?
    If anything is going to take the wind out of the sails of the never-quit Nuggets, you’d think this could be it.
    Anthony Davis’ arcing 3-pointer at the buzzer not only gave the Lakers a 105-103 victory in Game 2 of Sunday’s Western Conference Finals series, but it control-shift-deleted all of Denver’s painstaking work to recover from 16 points down.
    Alas, a loss is a loss is a loss — no matter how big or small the gap. Any way you slice it, the top-seeded Lakers are

    That changed when Bosa pinned Mahomes in the third quarter for a loss of 13 yards.
    But Mahomes and the Chiefs got the best of Bosa and the Chargers after Harrison Butker made the game-winning field goal for a 23-20 overtime victory at SoFi Stadium.

    ANAHEIM — A relative hot streak in September couldn’t prevent the Angels from yet another losing season.

    It’s the franchise’s longest drought since seven straight losing seasons from 1971-77.
