LA County vaccine allocations lag on heels of Johnson & Johnson production woes

Los Angeles County will receive about 73,000 fewer vaccine doses next week compared to this week, mostly due to a reduction in the supply of Johnson & Johnson vaccines, which the county’s chief science officer Paul Simon said Friday was the result of vaccine shortages nationally. “We are concerned about the allocation, particularly the shortage of Johnson & Johnson vaccine,” Simon said. “We felt the effects here clearly. We really live week to week with what we know about the allocations.” The s...

Keep calm and play on: Students chart a new music course during COVID-19

After COVID-19 halted in-person learning last spring, music teachers suddenly needed to connect with students in ways they had never imagined. For local educators, that meant a period of adjustment for navigating different apps and implementing virtual lesson plans. As the pandemic nears the one-year-mark, Los Angeles area instructors have become proficient at working online and keeping students engaged in their music studies from afar.

LA County surpasses 16,000 deaths as restaurants prepare for return of outdoor dining

As Los Angeles County restaurant owners were getting ready for a return to outdoor dining on Friday, the pandemic proved it was far from over, as the county surpassed 16,000 fatalities linked to COVID-19 on Thursday, Jan. 28. Deaths are considered a lagging indicator, among the last statistics to move — after hospitalizations and cases, which have been declining in recent weeks. While officials believe the coronavirus pandemic could be waning, it was still very real for the loved ones of another...

How Southern California teachers explain U.S. Capitol riot

Even as custodians and workers clean up damage left after rioters invaded the U.S. Capitol building Wednesday, Jan. 6, there’s another mess, as teachers and other adults try to figure out how to explain the events to the country’s children. “It was hard yesterday,” said Elizabeth Ramos, choking up. She’s taught government and history at Alta Loma High School in Rancho Cucamonga through the Obama and Trump presidencies. Online classes resumed Monday at the Chaffey Joint Union High School District...

LA County ambulance response being compromised by coronavirus surge

Hospitals across Los Angeles County have become so slammed with patients in recent weeks that county officials have instructed ambulances not to transport patients to the hospital with virtually no chance of survival and to preserve supplemental oxygen supplies by only administering it to people who desperately need it.

Hospitalizations tick upward as LA County posts 953 new coronavirus cases

Los Angeles County health officials reported 953 new cases of COVID-19 and 10 additional deaths on Saturday, Oct. 17, bringing the county’s totals to 288,136 cases with 6,863 fatalities. Officials with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health said the relatively low number of cases might be a result of several missing reports from Friday evening. A total of 746 people were hospitalized due to the virus as of Saturday, up from 735 on Friday, 723 on Thursday, 720 on Wednesday and 692 on ...

Essential work, layoffs and a cancer diagnosis: LA families juggle remote school with COVID-19

In the northeast San Fernando Valley, three families are keeping in close touch with one kindergarten teacher as they navigate lives upended by the coronavirus pandemic. They are drug store workers, a hospital receptionist, a laid off mechanic and a landscaper. With schools shuttered for a month, they are juggling kids with schoolwork to do at home alongside sometimes grueling work schedules of their own and, in one case, a cancer diagnosis. Their circumstances typify that of many families in Lo...

LAUSD teachers went on strike in 1989. But are the stakes higher in 2019?

Whether they were stuck in an auditorium or playing long-term hooky, many a school kid old enough to remember the 1989 Los Angeles teachers strike recalls the period as nine days of good old-fashioned lawlessness. Quoted in a New York Times article at the time, LAPD Lieut. Frank Valdez expressed his concern about “little predators” roaming LA’s downtown streets. “The problem kids are not going to go to school and it’s going to create problems all over, not just on campus,” he said during the str...

US tax shortfalls have our public schools begging for donations

Between Trump's massive tax-breaks for the super-rich and rules like California's disastrous Prop 13 have cities perennially cash-starved and have led to the erosion of the same public services that make cities attractive to businesses (for example, the subway, public education, roads, grid and other public services that made NYC so attractive to tax-dodging Amazon for its second headquarters). After coasting on New Deal fumes for 40 years since Reagan began the American oligarchic regressi...

If child abuse is so rampant, why are prosecutions so rare for those who fail to report it?

If you work with children in your job, California law requires you to report suspected child abuse. But few people are ever prosecuted for failing to alert authorities about their suspicions. From 2012 to 2017, fewer than a dozen workers in Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino and Riverside counties were charged by county prosecutors with violating the so-called mandated reporter law. And because violations are only a misdemeanor, those who are prosecuted and convicted virtually always receive li...
