It was just after 7 a.m. The sun was shining.

And Tiger Woods' future in the sport that made him a household name was suddenly an enormous question mark.
Woods was already recovering from his fifth back surgery when he got behind the wheel Tuesday morning. By the time he was pulled from the vehicle, he was unable to stand.
Tiger Woods underwent “a long surgical procedure” on his leg, foot and ankle after being seriously injured in a rollover car accident in Rancho Palos Verdes on Tuesday.

A coyote that has attacked both grown men and children and eluded traps has spawned a massive, 24-hour search in the East Bay suburb of Moraga.
The attacks started last summer. In each case, the apparently fearless coyote approached unsuspecting people and bit them before running off. All the victims recovered from their puncture wounds, and DNA has linked the attacks to a single coyote.

A woman whose 3-year-old daughter was bitten here last week said the animal retreated when she waved a blanket and shouted at it, only to keep drawing near again. The woman was pushing a stroller with her daughter at her side when the coyote approached. It finally fled.

The access codes were part of a program designed to get lifesaving COVID-19 vaccines into neighborhoods hit hardest by the pandemic.

Intended to address inequities, the program instead was being misused by people far outside the intended communities.
In L.A., the rumor spread like wildfire through group texts and email chains: The government was testing the appointment system at a new COVID-19 vaccination site at Cal State L.A., and you could help by using a special access code to sign up for a shot.
In the Bay Area, the gossip took a slightly different form: Doses at the Oakland Coliseum were about to expire, and you could do your part by making an appointment, again, with a special access code.

The Biden administration’s decision on a gas export project may offer a preview of how aggressively it will confront the climate crisis.

Energy reporter @Sammy_Roth explains: latimes.com/business/story…
A few days after Biden won the election, a San Diego company quietly asked federal officials for permission to send 5 million tons of natural gas each year across the border to an export terminal the company hopes to build along the Gulf of California. latimes.com/business/story…
Biden campaigned on a promise to put the entire economy on a path to net zero carbon emissions by 2050.

But there are early indications his administration might look kindly on American companies eager to ship natural gas overseas. latimes.com/business/story…

The section of Hawthorne Boulevard in Rancho Palos Verdes where Tiger Woods lost control of his car and was seriously injured in a rollover crash is known to local residents as a danger zone prone to accidents.
Donnie Nelson, a resident of Rolling Hills, said there are one or two serious crashes every year on the roadway.

The speed limit is 45 mph, but “cars fly by you here.” Image
Others agreed.

“You don’t know how fast you can descend... If you’re not familiar with this area, it’s just really easy to go fast," a Ranchos Palos Verdes resident said.
