A half-century ago, about an hour before sunrise, the earth under the San Fernando Valley shuddered for a full12 seconds. Freeway interchanges collapsed. Buildings shifted off their foundations.

State legislators call for more communication on Gov. Newsom’s vaccine plans

When the state in late January announced the rollout of a new website to register for COVID-19 vaccinations, it came as a surprise to some local health officials, who were still working out the bugs in their own scheduling systems and weren’t sure how the two would work together. Likewise, the news that the state would partner with Blue Shield and Kaiser to speed up vaccine distribution was news to some state legislators, who were so frustrated they wrote to Gov. Gavin Newsom seeking answers. “W...

By Zachary B.

How the 1971 Sylmar earthquake changed the lives of two first responders

Robert Lee and his family awoke to the walls of his home rocking and rattling on the morning of Feb. 9, 1971. A seismic jolt, the worst since 1893 to hit the area, got everyone’s attention and they bolted from their beds — including his two young sons. “They both came running in there and said,” Lee recalled, “‘Do that again, daddy! Do that again!’” This was not child’s play, and the young Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputy knew it. He’d rise to a damaged home in what was then known as Sepulved...
