Judge allows $2 billion sale of NBA's Los Angeles Clippers to proceed

Yahoo! National News - 3 hours 40 min ago

Shelly Sterling's lawyer Pierce O'Donnell gestures as he arrives at the court in Los AngelesBy Eric Kelsey LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The record $2 billion sale of pro basketball's Los Angeles Clippers to former Microsoft Corp chief executive Steve Ballmer can proceed over the objections of co-owner Donald Sterling, a judge tentatively ruled on Monday. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Levanas said the deal, brokered by Sterling's estranged wife, Shelly Sterling, was permissible and could be consummated even if Sterling, who has been banned for life from the NBA for racist remarks, chose to appeal. The ruling was a major victory for the NBA and Shelly Sterling, who had asked the probate judge to confirm her as the trustee of the family trust that owns the Clippers after having her 80-year-old husband removed when neurologists deemed him to have early Alzheimer's disease and was unable to handle business affairs.

By Marty Graham SAN DIEGO (Reuters) - The San Diego City Council gave formal approval on Monday to an ordinance incrementally raising the minimum wage in California's second-largest city to $11.50 an hour by January 2017, mostly for workers in the restaurant and retail sectors.

California's statewide minimum wage went up earlier this month to $9 an hour from $8, and is scheduled to climb to $10 an hour next July. California is one of 21 states with a higher minimum wage than the federal level of $7.25 an hour.

California drought dries up plans for historic gold rush celebration

Yahoo! National News - 4 hours 3 min ago
By Shawn Hubler SACRAMENTO Calif. (Reuters) - California’s drought has claimed yet another historic casualty in this parched capital city - the annual heritage celebration known as Gold Rush Days. Staged for the past 15 years by tourism groups who turn the city's Old Sacramento district into a dirt-paved scene from the 1850s, the Labor Day weekend tradition was canceled on Monday due to concerns about water use and fire. Steve Hammond, president and chief executive officer of the Sacramento Convention & Visitors Bureau, said that up to 3,000 gallons of water typically are used daily to dampen the tons of dirt strewn over the streets to create a soft surface for horses, wagons and stunt performers.
