San Fernando Valley restaurants prepare for their ‘lifeline,’ outdoor dining, to return Friday

Jennifer Febre’s MacLeod Ale Brewing Co. has a strong fan base, but even with devoted customers, her Van Nuys business has been struggling to stay afloat since the pandemic swept across the city. With her staff reduced to a skeleton crew and operations reduced to takeout, even her “hardcore fans” started disappearing since stay-at-home orders went into effect in November. “It has been incredibly slow,” she said, noting that her brewery was able to operate as a restaurant because it has a kitchen...

LAUSD students discuss political climate as Biden becomes president

Seeing a new administration take over the White House brings with it a feeling of excitement for Emely Cortez. At the same time, she struggles to remain hopeful that President Joe Biden will be able to get as much accomplished as she would like, given how fractured the country is. “In the last four years, when I’ve actually gotten into politics and I started paying attention, I’ve only seen a lot of bad stuff,” said Cortez, an 11th grader at Cesar E.

Jammed LA County hospitals get assistance with overtaxed oxygen-delivery systems

As the massive volume of COVID-19 patients continues to strain hospitals throughout Southern California, state and federal agencies are stepping in to assist facilities needing to provide oxygen to individuals with respiratory issues.

Photos: Looking back at 2020, via the lens of staff photographer Brittany Murray

Saying 2020 has been a difficult year is almost cliche now, which is sad. For far too many people, 2020 has truly been their worst year. For others, 2020 has been a minor inconvenience and shown that we all should be thankful for what we have. Personally, I am thankful for many things, one of which being my career. I’ve been a photojournalist for 22 years and I can honestly say that 99 out of 100 days I love it, a pretty good percentage by any standards. Sacramento Kings guard Buddy Hield. l...

COVID, BLM, Kobe, fires and more: Pixels from 2020, by staff photographer David Crane

Back in January I visited my friends’ house and noticed he had a huge box of 500 surgeon’s masks in his entry hallway which had just been delivered by Amazon. I thought it was a strange purchase as he is not a doctor or works in the medical field, and in fact, has been retired for a few years. He went on to tell me about a virus in China and he thought it might spread to other countries so he figured he should order some masks just in case and asked if I would like some. At the time, I told him ...
