Nephew spends 20 years tracking down his uncle, a World War II hero

For the longest time, Uncle Dave existed only as a picture on the mantle. Wry smile, thick eyebrows, Dave “Rosie” Rosenkrantz was a paratrooper in World War II in the 82nd Airborne Division, 504th Parachute Infantry Regiment, H Company. In the last picture anyone took of him, Dave was sitting happily next to a rifle with grenades dangling from his shoulder and across his belly in some unknown European city. “I could see his picture and a few medals,” said Phil Rosenkrantz, Dave’s nephew, who was...

Another measure, not directly tied to traffic, explores new ways to alert the public when a need to evacuate arises. While some new laws begin Jan. 1, others won’t take...

Should Los Angeles park rangers carry guns? Some on council say yes, but local opponents want fewer armed police

A motion to arm about two dozen Los Angeles park rangers is getting support from some members of City Council, while drawing scrutiny from local elected officials with major parks in their districts who want the city to back away from sending armed police to homeless encampments. The motion, filed by Councilman Joe Buscaino back in February, would change city codes to allow park rangers to carry firearms while on duty. The motion also asks the Department of Recreation and Parks and LAPD to repor...

With hospitals increasingly inundated with COVID patients, officials draft crisis-care guidelines

As hospitals throughout the region continue to be saturated with COVID-19 patients, administrators are bracing for the worst: being forced to ration resources and prioritize who gets care should medical supplies or the availability of trained staff fall to catastrophically low levels. It’s a scenario that all hospitals hope won’t actually come to fruition, but they’re required to have so-called “crisis care” guidelines — essentially a last-resort plan — in place just in case. Under a crisis care...

Here’s how Southern Californians would spend $600 vs. $2,000 stimulus payments

Daniel Jester, his wife and his four young kids have established a new tradition during the coronavirus pandemic: hanging laundry on a series of clothes lines he strung up behind their Riverside home. It’s not a quest to return to simpler times. It’s a necessity after their dryer broke several months ago. And since Jester was laid off in April from his full-time job as a production director for a studio in Los Angeles, money has been too tight to buy a new one. If Congress and President Donald T...

COSTA MESA — Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said he hasn’t been told by the team whether he’s returning for the 2021 season. “No,” Lynn said Wednesday when asked about receiving reassurance. “We communicate on the regular, but I’m not concerned about that right now.

Donate Life isn’t letting COVID-19 stop it from honoring organ donors – even without Rose Parade

Because of the worsening pandemic, there will be no Rose Parade this year.  However, Donate Life — which created a float for the parade every year since 2003  — isn’t going to let the coronavirus prevent it from honoring donors who helped save lives. No, the nonprofit alliance of national organizations committed to increasing organ, eye and tissue donations, won’t have a float. But it has crafted a 25-foot wide, 16-foot tall and 8-foot deep floral sculpture that includes the traditional floragra...
