By Patrick May | [email protected] | Bay Area News Group PUBLISHED: February 5, 2019 at 10:21 am | UPDATED: February 5, 2019 at 10:34 am Talk about setting the table. After putting a good chunk of the federal government into sleep mode, then arm-wrestling with the Democrats as the partial government shutdown dragged its way into the history books, President Donald Trump not only has the nation’s attention for Tuesday night’s State of the Union address, he’s practically got America in a head lock.

A guy two months after grabbing his journalism degree from Michigan State had secured that most aspired of all prizes: a job at a daily newspaper. I walked into the office and joined my two sports-staff partners, Dick Lovell and sports editor Bill Frank. My first task: write a cutline (photo caption) for an Associated Press photo of Jack Nicklaus from the Pleasant Valley Classic's final round. Four decades and many million words later, it ends, formally anyway, today at The Detroit News, a wondrous employer for nearly all of the past 40 years. There have been moments and minutes so magical, and so frequent, as to defy any orderly account. But here goes on … [Read more...] about Henning: 45 years covering sports provide endless memories
By Fielding Buck | [email protected] | The Press-EnterprisePUBLISHED: October 20, 2018 at 10:01 am | UPDATED: October 22, 2018 at 9:01 pm The late celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain called In-N-Out Burger’s Double-Double a “perfectly designed protein delivery system.” The ground-breaking fast food chain is also a delivery system for the California dream. That could explain why In-N-Out has achieved cult status. The fast food chain celebrates its 70th anniversary on Monday, Oct. 22. The first location, a tiny stand, opened its doors in Baldwin Park on Oct. 22, 1948. In-N-Out will mark the occasion by releasing its 2019 T-shirt in restaurants on Monday, according to Denny Warnick, vice president of operations. And an official party will take place Nov. 17 at the Fairplex in Pomona in partnership with Hot Rod Magazine.
