LA County reports no new coronavirus deaths again, although reporting lags contribute

Although the numbers are likely due to weekend reporting lags, Los Angeles County announced zero COVID-19 deaths for the second day in a row on Monday, May 3, as the public health director expressed confidence the county will move up to the least-restrictive tier of the economic-reopening blueprint this week. COVID-19 case and death numbers are traditionally low on Sundays and Mondays as a result of delays in reporting from the weekend, but the back-to-back days of zero deaths still offered a gl...

Growing artists hub in the San Fernando Valley closes its doors, done in by coronavirus

The sound system had been sold to a local museum. And the gallery t-walls, broken down by a demolition company into nothing more than wood pieces, were shipped out. Just the faint outlines remained of a stage area that had showcased monthly jazz performances, and that was jostled so hard once by an a capella group, it had to be re-shimmed. By Thursday, July 23, most of what had been in the Tarzana warehouse unit on Oxnard Street had been spirited away. The physical home of the San Fernando Valle...

Why those daily coronavirus counts aren’t the complete picture

The novel coronavirus was infecting and killing many more people in the outbreak’s early stages than public officials knew at the time, Los Angeles and Riverside counties have revealed through new data that gives a better picture of when people actually got sick or died.

Thousands of ‘disease detectives’ preparing to trace spread of coronavirus in California 

Thousands of recruits in Gov. Gavin Newsom’s newly minted COVID-19 tracing army are beginning virtual bootcamp to learn how to track and help isolate those possibly infected with the deadly virus. Earlier this week, Newsom announced a landmark partnership with UC San Francisco and UCLA to mobilize 20,000 so-called “disease detectives” over the next two months as the state slowly begins to ease stay-at-home orders.

Book, comic store owners not rushing to reopen as coronavirus restrictions loosen

Buying a comic or used book is typically a tactile experience laced with a sense of discovery as customers browse packed shelves to find an obscure tome tucked away they never knew they wanted or an under-priced vintage Superman issue lurking in a musty box. Increasingly, such stores are social experiences, too, with customers gathering for poetry readings, meet-the-author nights or to play such group-oriented games as Magic: The Gathering.

Blueberry Picking

We’ve been blueberry picking for the last several years. I love getting lots of blueberries to freeze for an inexpensive price, but it’s hard work out in the hot June sun. Not to mention two Tasmanian devils running around and dropping the blueberry bucket (for the second year in a row)! Hmmmm….maybe heading to the grocery store and picking up a few pints isn’t such a bad idea after all?! More
