101- RACE WEEK HAS FINALLY ARRIVED!- The 33rd LA Marathon race begins Sunday morning at Dodger Stadium.
By Gary Sunkin
••••Los Angeles Dodgers All-Star third baseman Justin Turner will join dignitaries and race officials at the start line at Dodger Stadium. Serving as an honorary starter, Turner will help send off participants in this year's Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon on their 26.2-mile journey to the finish line in Santa Monica.
•••• The race begins at 6:30 a.m. on Sunday, March 18 and if you plan on driving or riding the bus that day, you'll want to take a good look at the planned street closures along the route.
•••The marathon starts at Dodger Stadium and winds its way through Downtown before cutting up past Echo Park Lake and over to Sunset Boulevard. Runners will follow the street up to Hollywood Boulevard and head west, passing the Walk of Fame along the way.
••••The course then drops down to the Sunset Strip and then down again to Santa Monica Boulevard. After a quick detour in Beverly Hills, it extends north toward the VA Hospital and cuts west on San Vicente. Finally, runners enter the final stretch on Ocean Avenue and finish the race just short of the Santa Monica Pier.
••••Most of the streets closed for the race will shut down between 4 and 5 a.m., though stretches of Main Street and Ocean Avenue in Santa Monica will be closed to traffic at midnight. Streets will start to reopen between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.
About the Marathon
The LA Marathon (formerly the City of Los Angeles Marathon) is an annual running event held each spring in Los Angeles, California. The 26.219 mile (42.195 km) footrace, inspired by the success of the 1984 Summer Olympic Games, has been contested every year since 1986. The marathon is currently sponsored by Skechers, and thus its official title is the Skechers Performance LA Marathon.
•••• Over the course of its 33-year history, the LA Marathon has become one of the largest marathons in the country with more than 25,000 participants, thousands of volunteers and hundreds of thousands of spectators.
••••The historic race, which has seen unprecedented growth since introducing the iconic "Stadium to Sea" course, draws runners from all over the world to take a tour of Los Angeles running past every major landmark. The "Stadium to the Sea" route was not the original route: the original route ended at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, and a route around the turn of the millennium both started and ended in Downtown Los Angeles.
••••The current route starts at Dodger Stadium and ends in Santa Monica.
///
Professional Runners and Students Run LA Official Race Shake Out Run:
Friday morning March 16, the professional runners scheduled to toe the start line at the 2018 Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon, will join 25 &endash; 30 participants in the Students Run LA (SRLA) program for the official pre-race shake-out run at Griffith Park. Approximately 3,500 SRLA runners will take part in the Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon again this year.
••••The Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon Health & Fitness Expo is at the Los Angeles Convention Center on Friday, March 16 and Saturday, March 17. The Expo will host over 120 vendors and features world-class brands of products and services that fuel, support, and motivate runners, friends and family.  The Expo with 45,000 expected attendees it is one of the biggest events of the year at the Los Angeles Convention Center. The Health and Fitness Expo is free and open to the public. Hours are 10am &endash; 7pm on Friday and 9am --5pm on Saturday.
LA Loyal Program
Debuting this year, the LA Loyal program is designed to celebrate marathon runners who run the Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon in consecutive years. These runners will be recognizable by a unique black and gold race bib. Those runners with 10 or more consecutive Marathons will be awarded a coveted Bold and Gold medal, featuring the same design as the original Los Angeles Marathon medal from 1986.

115-Oscars No Shows, 1960 - 2016
• Hollywood stars who snubbed the Academy Awards
Not everyone in Hollywood enjoys the gala event. Over the years, a handful of Hollywood A-listers have refused to attend the ceremony, and some who've sidestepped the show did so when they were up for awards of their own.
•••• From Katharine Hepburn to Will Smith, here are Hollywood stars who snubbed the Oscars.
•••• 2016 - Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith called for a boycott of the Academy Awards ceremony upon learning that the nominations, for the second year in a row, featured no actors of color. The actress and her superstar husband, Will Smith, were soon joined in the boycott by other Hollywood heavyweights including Oscar-winning directors Spike Lee and Michael Moore, while other stars -- including Oscar winners George Clooney and Lupita Nyong'o -- spoke out in support.
•••• 2003 - Peter O' Toole - In 2003, Peter O' Toole became the first actor to ever refuse an honorary Oscar. Maybe he did so out of pride. The legendary "Lawrence of Arabia" star, who'd been nominated eight times throughout his nearly 50-year career and lost every single time, wrote to the Academy, explaining, "I am still in the game and might win the lovely bugger outright. Would the Academy please defer the honor until I am 80?"
•••• The Academy responded by telling him stars like Paul Newman and Henry Fonda were given Honorary Oscars and went on to actually win one shortly after. O'Toole was sold, and happily showed up to accept his award.
•••2002 - Woody Allen though he's been nominated several times throughout his decades-long career, has never shown up to receive an Academy Award, explaining, "I have no regard for that kind of ceremony. I just don't think they know what they're doing. When you see who wins those things -- or who doesn't win them -- you can see how meaningless this Oscar thing is."
•••• Allen did make one appearance on the Oscars stage. In 2002, just six months after the September 11 attacks, the director presented a montage of films made in his beloved New York City.
•••• 1987 - Paul Newman was nominated six times from 1961 until 1982, and although he attended the ceremony many times, he never took home an award.
•••• Newman was nominated a seventh time in 1987 for "The Color Of Money." All bets were on him, but by that point, the actor was over it, and decided ahead of time he wouldn't attend the ceremony. "It's like chasing a beautiful woman for 80 years. Finally, she relents and you say, 'I'm terribly sorry. I'm tired,'" Newman explained.
•••• 1981 - John Gielgud, British actor, charmed audiences as the unflappable, acid-tongued butler Hobson in 1981's "Arthur," but the actor didn't bother showing up to the ceremony to accept his award when his name was called.
•• Gielgud, who throughout his eight-decade career nabbed two Oscars, three Tonys, an Emmy and a Grammy (among other honors) -- once said of awards shows, "I really detest all the mutual congratulation baloney and the invidious comparisons which they evoke.""
•••• 1974 - Katharine Hepburn holds a Hollywood record for being nominated 12 times and winning four Oscars over her long career, but she never attended the ceremony to hear her name called. "As for me, prizes are nothing," she once said. "My prize is my work." Hepburn made exactly one appearance at the Academy Awards in 1974 to present the Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award to producer and friend Lawrence Weingarten. "I'm living proof that a person can wait 41 years to be unselfish," she quipped.
•••• 1973 - Marlon Brando caused a ruckus when he boycotted the ceremony in 1973 to call attention to Hollywood's misrepresentation of Native Americans. Brando, who won Best Actor honors that year for his performance in "The Godfather," had Native American civil rights activist Sacheen Littlefeather approach the podium to decline his award and give a protest speech on his behalf.
•••• 1970 - George C. Scott was the first actor to refuse to accept an Oscar. The legendary actor, who was nominated in 1970 for his gripping portrayal of Gen. George S. Patton in "Patton," telegraphed the Academy months before the ceremony to let them know he didn't want the award. On the night of the ceremony, presenter Goldie Hawn opened the envelope and cried, "Oh my God! The winner is George C. Scott," but the actor, true to his word, was home on his farm in upstate New York.
•••• Scott said of the Oscars, "The ceremonies are a two-hour meat parade, a public display with contrived suspense for economic reasons." Oops!
•••• 1960 - Elizabeth Taylor, screen legend, was a frequent Oscar nominee, nabbing her first award for her role as a high-class escort in 1960's "Butterfield 8." Six years later, Taylor was poised to win again for her riveting performance opposite husband Richard Burton, who was also nominated, for "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" However, Burton had already lost four times at the Oscars and would almost certainly lose again, so both husband and wife boycotted the ceremony in protest -- though Taylor made up an excuse about Burton being afraid to fly back to the states from Paris. Taylor did win again and never issued a statement thanking the Academy.

101- The 87th Golden Mike Awards®-
• Christine Devin, KTTV, Chuck Henry, KNBC and Dave Lopez KCBS/KCAL honored with Lifetime Achievement Award.
The Golden Mike Awards gala dinner was held at the Universal Hilton in Universal City on, January 27, 2018.
•••• The Golden Mike Awards® are Southern California's most prestigious, and most coveted, broadcast journalism prize. What sets the Golden Mikes apart from other competitions is the "Golden Mike Standard of Excellence", appended below. Unlike most awards contests in which winners are determined by selecting which entry is the "best" among all those submitted in each category, winners of the Golden Mike Awards®" must also meet the "Standard of Excellence". If the judges decide that no entry in a category meets the "Standard of Excellence", then no award is given in that category. As a result, Golden Mike Award® winners know that their work has been judged to be "excellent", as well as the "best".
•••• Another distinguishing feature of the Golden Mike Awards® is the quality and integrity of the judging process. Blue-ribbon panels of judges are constituted by recruiting first-rate, experienced broadcast news professionals from top markets, stations, networks, bureaus, and universities across the country. They are flown to Los Angeles for the Judging Day, where they are assigned into three-person panels for radio and television. Each panel is assigned a Monitor who explains and applies the judging procedures, distributes scoring sheets, plays each entry on professional video and audio equipment, and then collects the scoring sheets. The scoring sheets are then delivered to the Awards Accountant, who tabulates the scores, identifies the winners, and confirms those categories that are noted by the judges as not meeting the "Golden Mike Standard of Excellence".
•••• The Golden Mike Awards® are presented at a gala dinner in Hollywood each January in an industry event which is both congratulatory and celebratory. For over 65 years, the Radio & Television News Association of Southern California has promoted excellence in broadcast journalism through the Golden Mike Awards® and is committed to continuing that legacy into the future.

106- The FCC sued by 22 states over net neutrality decision
•••• Twenty-two state attorneys general filed a lawsuit Tuesday, seeking to block the rollback of the Federal Communications Commission's net neutrality rules.
•••• The lawsuit argues that the FCC's decision in December to eliminate the rules that prohibited Internet providers from slowing down or blocking content, or charging for access to certain sites, was "arbitrary," "capricious" and "an abuse of discretion."
•••• "An open internet, the free exchange of ideas it allows, is critical to our democratic process," said New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman, who led the coalition that filed the multi-state coalition. "The repeal of net neutrality would turn internet service providers into gatekeepers -- allowing them to put profits over consumers while controlling what we see, what we do, and what we say online. This would be a disaster for New York consumers and businesses, and for everyone who cares about a free and open internet."
••••Schneiderman said in a statement that the FCC had failed to justify its reasons for abandoning net-neutrality, and for ignoring evidence of consumer harm. He also argues that the commission misinterpreted the Telecommunications Act.
••• The Federal Communications Commission argued that the Obama-era rules, imposed in 2015, had curbed industry investment.
••••Tuesday's lawsuit comes a day after Democratic lawmakers in the Senate say they're getting closer to gathering the votes needed to overturn the rule change, known as the Restoring Internet Freedom Act.
• 106- Net Neutrality Rule Repeald by the FCC
106- FCC could kill net neutrality -- By Jessica Rosenworcel, member of the Federal Communications Commission
•••• I'm on the FCC. Please stop us from killing net neutrality
•••• Right now, you can go online and connect with friends, watch videos and read the news. There's a good chance you are reading this online right now.
•••• We do much more on the internet than consume content, however. Increasingly, the internet is also where we create. We use online platforms and digital services to develop, share and spread ideas around the corner and around the globe.
•••• This is the open internet experience we all know, and it's a big part of why America's internet economy is the envy of the world.
•••• But this week, the leadership at the Federal Communications Commission put forth a plan to gut the foundation of this openness. They have proposed to end net neutrality, and they are trying to force a vote on their plan on Dec. 14.
•••• If the idea behind the plan is bad, the process for it has been even worse.
•••• It's a lousy idea. And it deserves a heated response from the millions of Americans who work and create online every day.
•••• Net neutrality is the right to go where you want and do what you want on the internet without your broadband provider getting in the way. It means your broadband provider can't block websites, throttle services or charge you premiums if you want to reach certain online content.
•••• Proponents of wiping out these rules think that by allowing broadband providers more control and the ability to charge for premium access, it will spur investment. This is a dubious proposition.
•••• Wiping out net neutrality would have big consequences. Without it, your broadband provider could carve internet access into fast and slow lanes, favoring the traffic of online platforms that have made special payments and consigning all others to a bumpy road. Your provider would have the power to choose which voices online to amplify and which to censor. The move could affect everything online, including the connections we make and the communities we create.
•••• This is not the internet experience we know today. Americans should prevent the plan from becoming the law of the land.
•••• There is something not right about a few unelected FCC officials making such vast determinations about the future of the internet. I'm not alone in thinking this. More than 22 million people have filed comments with the agency. They overwhelmingly want the FCC to preserve and protect net neutrality.
•••• At the same time, there are real questions about who filed some of the net neutrality comments with the FCC. There are credible allegations that many of the comments were submitted by bots and others using the names of deceased people. What's more, some 50,000 recent consumer complaints appear to have gone missing.
•••• As he announced this week, New York Atty. Gen. Eric Schneiderman has been investigating these apparently fake comments for six months. The Government Accountability Office is also looking into how a denial-of-service attack may have prevented people from getting their thoughts into the official record.
•••• In short, this is a mess. If the idea behind the plan is bad, the process for commenting on it has been even worse.
•••• Before my fellow FCC members vote to dismantle net neutrality, they need to get out from behind their desks and computers and speak to the public directly. The FCC needs to hold hearings around the country to get a better sense of how the public feels about the proposal.
•••• When they do this, they will likely find that, outside of a cadre of high-paid lobbyists and lawyers in Washington, there isn't a constituency that likes this proposal. In fact, the FCC will probably discover that they have angered the public and caused them to question just whom the agency works for.
•••• I think the FCC needs to work for the public, and therefore that this proposal needs to be slowed down and eventually stopped. In the time before the agency votes, anyone who agrees should do something old-fashioned: Make a ruckus.
•••• Reach out to the rest of the FCC now. Tell them they can't take away internet openness without a fight.

• 106- Sinclair Broadcast Group is fined $13 million by FCC
•••• The Federal Communications Commission has leveled a $13.4-million fine against Sinclair Broadcast Group for failing to identify sponsored content that aired on its TV stations.
•••• The fine is the largest ever proposed by the commission for such a violation and comes at a delicate time for the Baltimore-based company, which is seeking Justice Department and FCC approvals for its proposed $3.9-billion acquisition of Tribune Media.
•••• The FCC said Sinclair created 60- and 90-second spots that promoted the Huntsman Cancer Institute in Utah and aired them on its local newscasts, or as free-standing half-hour programs.
•••• But the company did not identify the spots as sponsored content paid for by the Huntsman Cancer Foundation. Other non-Sinclair stations that were supplied the programs and segments were also not informed about the sponsorship, the FCC said in a statement.
•••• The FCC's sponsorship identification rules require that paid programming be identified as such to provide a clear distinction for viewers between commercials and news coverage or editorial content.
•••• The commission said it determined that Sinclair had been in violation of its rules following an investigation based on an anonymous complaint made in April 2016. In a statement, Sinclair denied any wrongdoing and said it will contest the fine.
•••• "Any absence of sponsorship identification in these public service segments was unintended and a result of simple human error," Sinclair said in a statement.
•••• Sinclair has already been widely criticized among television news professionals for forcing its stations to run segments with conservative-leaning points of view or commentaries on its local newscasts. However, those segments do not run afoul of FCC regulations.
•••• Sinclair is currently the largest owner of TV stations in the U.S., and the merger with Tribune would give it 233 broadcast outlets reaching 72% of the country.
•••• The proposed merger has been opposed by both liberal and conservative advocacy groups who believe it will create too much consolidation of power in the media business.
