California Businesses Go From Simmer to Boil Over Newsom’s Fine Dining
California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s maskless dinner with medical industry lobbyists and others at a Napa County restaurant where meals cost a minimum of $350 per head was just about the last straw for some beleaguered California small-business owners.With their livelihoods on the line, a growing number of them are openly defying the latest orders to shut down as COVID cases skyrocket in California — and pointing to Newsom’s bad behavior.“We are definitely not complying. We have enough information to make an educated decision: The data do not back another shutdown,” said Miguel Aguilar, founder and ...
Stefan Bondy: Knicks' Tom Thibodeau is a win-now coach given a lose-now roster
NEW YORK — The Knicks’ moves in free agency, or lack of moves, again places the franchise near the bottom of the league in talent and high up in cap flexibility. On the surface, it makes sense: the free-agent class was underwhelming, the upcoming drafts and free agencies are projected as more fertile, and a pandemic has relieved any pressure to sell tickets or to discourage fans from chanting “Sell the Team.”Why not stink for another year?But there is an important issue to reconcile: Tom Thibodeau.In case you haven’t read the swaths of profiles on Thibs, he’s not equipped for tanking.

Mike Jensen: Collin Gillespie's journey to Villanova senior leader is filled with proving doubters wrong
PHILADELPHIA — The question for Villanova coach Jay Wright about his point guard was a basic one: If Collin Gillespie has more upside to show, how can we spot that?“Creativity, offensively,” was the first thing that came to Wright’s mind. “Being really crafty about finding more ways to score. Defensively, I think he is what he is — he’s a tough, really good defender. Great rebounder for a guard. I don’t know if he can get that much better in those areas.”Wright went back to offense, and made a point about the point guard who mentored Gillespie when he first got to Villanova.“Kind of like Jalen...
