Free.Get all the latest Pasadena news, more than 10 fresh stories daily, 7 days a week at 7 a.m. Pasadena Health officials reported three more deaths in Pasadena on Wednesday, including a 102-year old local resident.The three fatalities take the death toll to 69. In total, officials have confirmed 607 cases since the pandemic began.The fatalities came after four days of no fatalities and one death yesterday.The new numbers came shortly after Public Health Director Dr. Ying Ying Goh issued a new order allowing all of the city’s 351 retail companies to do business from curbsides.The order also provides guidelines for car washes, restaurants doing takeout and delivery and dog groomers, which means pet owners can finally get their animals groomed.The new order remains consistent with recent efforts to reopen businesses and recreational areas as the city enters the early part of stage two of the recovery.On Wednesday, the popular Rose Bowl Loop reopened, but vehicular traffic is prohibited in the loop.Los Angeles County also released a new order allowing all retail to begin operated under curbside guidelines.Pasadena continues to work closely with the county, Long Beach and city of Los Angeles.The new order which continues to urge people to stay home as much as possible, engage in social distancing and wear face coverings when interacting in public — has no expiration date, an indication such mandates will be in place for months to come.The county’s “Safer At Home” order has never barred people from leaving their homes, but it continues to mandate closures of dine-in restaurants, museums and gyms, while also banning large gatherings.On Tuesday, county public health director Barbara Ferrer created a stir when she told the county Board of Supervisors that some form of public health restrictions will likely be in place at least another three months due to the continuing threat of the coronavirus.The remark, made during a debate over a proposed moratorium on evictions, quickly made headlines and prompted groans from residents growing weary of business closures, stay-at-home orders and shuttered restaurants and bars.

Jahana Hayes, a former national teacher of the year said that “Title IX was never meant to be used as a tool to threaten schools into discriminatory practices in order to preserve critically needed federal funds”.The Office for Civil Rights ruled the Connecticut policy, which allows athletes to participate as the gender with which they identity, has “denied female student-athletes athletic benefits and opportunities, including advancing to the finals in events, higher level competitions, awards, medals, recognition, and the possibility of greater visibility to colleges and other benefits.”
Down 14 points with 14:52 remaining on the clock, the members of UW’s women’s basketball team looked each other in the eyes and decided Virginia was not going to end their season.”Coach McDowell said to me, ‘It’s now or never. Now is the time to take it or our season’s going to be over,'” UW junior guard Janese Banks said.It took almost 12 minutes on the game clock for Wisconsin to capture its first lead of the game. But when the clock finally showed all zeros, the scoreboard showed Wisconsin 84, Virginia 78.”I knew we wouldn’t quit,” Banks said. “We came together and started setting goals for ourselves. We just locked down defensively like Coach Stone wanted us to.”The Badgers were down the entire game, but every time the Cavaliers started to pull away, someone would step up to keep Wisconsin within striking distance until it was time to take over.With three and a half minutes remaining in the game, and down 70-68, UW freshman point guard Rae Lin D’Alie had what seemed to be a breakaway that would surely tie the game. But Virginia freshman guard Monica Wright came out of nowhere with a monster block from behind.Following the block, the ball rolled toward the sideline and was picked up by Virginia point guard Sharnee Zoll. Trying to push into fast-break mode, Zoll threw the ball ahead of her. When she regained possession, Banks was waiting for her, feet glued to the floor, and drew the offensive charge.”I noticed that [Zoll] was losing her balance,” Banks said. “So I said to myself, ‘She’s going to take one more step into me, and I’m going to fall.’ “And she did.”The Virginia bench exploded in rage, which subsequently led to a technical foul, and UW junior guard Jolene Anderson’s free throws tied the game at 70.On the ensuing possession, with 3:06 remaining, D’Alie hit a runner along the baseline. The Badgers had their first lead of the game, one they refused to relinquish.After a clutch defensive stop on the other end, Anderson provided the dagger, a play Badgers head coach Lisa Stone called the play of the game.With the shot clock winding down, D’Alie dribbled the ball off her foot, but it rolled right to Anderson, who, with four seconds remaining on the shot clock, squared up and fired a 3-pointer.The ball found the bottom of the net just as the shot clock buzzer sounded to give Wisconsin a five-point lead.”Anything she shoots up, it doesn’t surprise me [when it goes in],” Banks said.Despite cutting the lead to 75-74, it was too little, too late for the Cavaliers.Clutch free throws by D’Alie, Anderson and Banks down the stretch sealed the deal for the Badgers who will move on to face Western Ketucky Wednesday night in the Kohl Center in the WNIT’s Final Four.Anderson finished the game with 30 points, tying her career high set last Sunday against Arkansas State.Banks finished with 19, and Ward finished one point shy of double figures with nine.”I can’t say enough about my semi-senior class,” Stone said of the three juniors. “They led this team. They led this team in a way of fighting back.”The Badgers clawed their way back from 13- and 10-point deficits in the first half, and trailed by as many as 14 after the break. Wisconsin didn’t earn as much as a tie until Anderson converted on the technical free throws.”Everybody believed that we were going to win this game, even when we were down and trailing,” Stone said. “Nobody gave up. And that’s a key to this team, they want to win.”Until the 14:52 mark, Virginia was having its way on offense. Led by senior center Siedah Williams’ 25 and sophomore forward Lyndra Littles’ 24 points, the Cavaliers seemed to be able to score at will.But when push came to shove, Wisconsin’s tenacious defense and timely offense was enough to pull out the victory.”Knowing that we beat a really good team feels awesome, and now we’re one step closer,” Stone said. “We refused to lose.”
Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa praised fellow quarterback Jalen Hurts for sticking with the Crimson Tide, despite an interesting quarterback situation that unfolded this season. Tagovailoa was tabbed as the starter for the 2018 season after he took over for then-starting quarterback Hurts during halftime of the College Football Playoff national championship game against Georgia. Hurts had been Alabama’s starter during the 2016 and 2017 seasons.

Tagovailoa had surgery Sunday and is expected to be back with the team and practicing within two weeks, which means he could play in the Orange Bowl, according to The Athletic. Tua Tagovailoa injury update: Alabama QB sprained ankle in SEC championship game “(It’s a) testament to Jalen’s hard work he’s put in the offseason,” Tagovailoa said Thursday at the college football year-end awards after winning the Maxwell Award. “To character — it shows the kind of character he has, with his faith as well. The kind of background he comes from with his family support. I think it’s something very special for him to have stayed, and I definitely think he deserves everything that’s coming his way right now.“I think it’s a bigger testament to how he was raised, with his family, how they raised him. I think they’ve done a tremendous job with that. Jalen’s an all-around great person. He’s a great student, and on the field, he’s just a very good supporter to me and Mac Jones as well. Mac Jones is a great supporter of us. But you know, just an all-around great person.” Related News “You can look at it in two ways. You can look at it in a positive way, where OK, this is something that I’ve dealt with. How am I going to go about doing things now? Or you can look at it as, dang, I’m just gonna keep getting injured,” Tagovailoa said of his injury. “There’s either a positive or a negative, and I try to look at the positive side of it.“If it was meant for me to get hurt, it was meant for me to get hurt. I don’t know. I don’t know how life works. That’s just how it works sometimes. That’s just how the ball rolls. We’re dealt with adversity sometimes, and it’s just how you respond.”Top-ranked Alabama will face Oklahoma on Dec. 29 with kickoff scheduled for 8 p.m. ET.
