As the City of Angels begins to look like City of Capone

Chicago has a reputation for a history of political corruption and official lawlessness dating back at least as far as Prohibition. In one vintage joke, a thirsty visitor to the city flags down a cab driver. “Do you know where I can get a drink?” he asks. “You see that church?” says the cab driver, pointing to an ornate building. “That church?” the visitor repeats. “Yeah,” says the cab driver, “That’s the only place in town where you can’t get a drink.” Despite that city’s tradition of indiffere...

The New Way Forward: Wetlands

It's crazy all the information that's out on the internet. What to rice fields & salmon have in common? I'm not talking about sushi either. I absolutely love the videos that California Trout posts to Vimeo. The New Way Forward: Wetlands, an almost nine-minute short from River Garden Films is no exception, and is definitely worth the watch if you're into the inner-workings of ecosystems.Without giving away the whole narrative, when California changed the way rice farmers had to turn over fields ...

For student supporting her LAUSD teachers, it’s all about classroom size

By Bradley Bermont, contributing reporter Middle-school was very different than elementary school for for 11-year-old Angelina Soultanian. Her class sizes became significantly larger, growing by a dozen or more students, and her cohorts’ behavior grew more disruptive with it, she said. It’s why the Patrick Henry Middle School sixth-grader marched in the rain through downtown Los Angeles, with her mom and sister, supporting the teachers’ strike on Monday. “Most of the time, they’re rude,” she sai...

Revenge porn restraining order against LAPD officer extended by judge

A judge Tuesday, Jan. 15, granted a female Los Angeles police detective a five-year extension of a restraining order against the senior lead officer of the LAPD’s Central Division, who allegedly distributed sexually explicit photos of her without her permission. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge James Blancarte said the allegations against Officer Danny Reedy are among the most serious with which he has to deal. He ordered Reedy to stay at least 100 yards from Detective Ysabel Villegas and to sur...

Long Beach says sea-level rise will bring dire flooding to some neighborhoods

Rising sea levels are not only going to increasingly flood parts of Long Beach, but could leave the most vulnerable neighborhoods uninhabitable within a generation or two, according to a city presentation Monday night that drew more 300 residents concerned about the city’s — and their own — future. “Residents can continue living on Naples and the Peninsula for several decades as long as you’re willing to experience occasional flooding,” said Jerry Schubel, a marine scientist and CEO of the Aquar...

‘Extreme Makeover: Home Edition’ is returning with a brand-new season on HGTV

Before Chip and Joanna Gaines and “Fixer Upper,” before the “Property Brothers” twins Jonathan and Drew Scott, before practically anyone besides Bob Vila and “This Old House,” there was “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.” And just like an old house that’s seen better days but could be revitalized with some shiplap paneling, HGTV is renovating the old ABC franchise that ended its nine-year run in 2012 and putting “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” back on the market. “This is a big win for HGTV and w...

Trump’s nominee for attorney general asserts his independence

By ERIC TUCKER and MICHAEL BALSAMO WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump’s nominee for attorney general asserted independence from the White House on Tuesday, saying he believed that Russia had tried to interfere in the 2016 presidential election, that the special counsel investigation shadowing Trump is not a witch hunt and that his predecessor was right to recuse himself from the probe. Those comments by William Barr at his Senate confirmation hearing pointedly departed from Trump’s own views an...

This earthquake guide will help prepare your business for the next big one

Southern California is a known center of earthquake activity, yet many businesses in the region are ill prepared for another major shaker. Budgets, deadlines, vendor contracts, taxes … these are the things most business owners are occupied with. But with the 25th anniversary of the Jan. 17, 1994 Northridge Earthquake upon us, companies would be well advised to develop a plan to better insulate their operations from the destructive power of large quakes. And that next big one? It could be right a...

Judge bars Trump administration’s citizenship question from 2020 Census

By LARRY NEUMEISTER | Associated Press NEW YORK — The Trump administration cannot put a question about citizenship status on the 2020 census, a federal judge in New York ruled Friday in a boost to proponents of counting immigrants. In a 277-page decision that won’t be the final word on the issue, U.S. District Judge Jesse Furman ruled that while such a question would be constitutional, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross had moved to add it to the census arbitrarily and had not followed proper admini...

Monarchs in California decrease by 86% + Trump allows increase in logging on federal land

Animals may perceive as much beauty as we do What explains the iridescent and long feathers of birds-of-paradise or the extravagant mating ritual of the male flame bowerbird? 150 years ago, Charles Darwin proposed that the opalescent beauty of some animals had nothing to do with natural selection. Darwin believed that animals could appreciate beauty for its own sake and that aesthetics and survival did not have to be linked. Today, biologists are reviving Darwin’s forgotten theory, saying that...

Bob Hertzberg embraces an active final term in California Legislature

After more than a decade out of public office, Bob Hertzberg strode back into Sacramento four years ago to find state politics had changed. The game was different, with new rules and a new online playing field. The players were new, too, and no longer called him Mr. Speaker. Not all of them enjoyed what he viewed as a friendly hug, the way human beings used to. The one-time California Assembly boss, one-time Los Angeles mayoral contender and all-time big thinker said recently of his first term i...

What do you think of the LAUSD teacher strike?

Second-largest school district in the nation or not, many Southern Californians have little to no personal connection to the Los Angeles Unified School District. That’s because we are so vast a region and population, with many dozens of districts, along with charters and independent schools, teaching our children. But most of us have still been avidly following the build-up to the now-real strike by the 30,000 teachers of the UTLA union, whether we have an 8th-grader at Walter Reed Middle School...

Doc Rivers appreciates Clippers’ versatility in quest to exploit matchups

LOS ANGELES — Coach Doc Rivers is a big fan of the mix and match-up game, eager to experiment with on-court combinations when the opportunity arises. Take, for example, the lineup the Clippers debuted in the second quarter of Saturday’s loss to the Detroit Pistons: Lou Williams, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Patrick Beverley, Tyrone Wallace and Montrezl Harrell. That four-guard group – of whom Harrell, the 6-foot-8 center, is the tallest – inherited a 37-24 deficit. In five minutes of work, they whit...

DACA recipients being allowed to travel outside U.S. was stopped by Trump. Now they want it back

His mother was dying and he was desperate. So Dario Guerrero Meneses took her to Mexico for an experimental treatment. Guerrero, a DACA recipient, had applied for permission to leave the U.S., but, eager to save his mother, didn’t wait for the answer. That move cost the Long Beach resident, then a student at Harvard University, the immigration status that gave him temporary relief from the fear of deportation. The government figured he self-deported. Guerrero was eventually allowed back into the...

Gov. Newsom hopes LAUSD teachers’ strike ends soon, but won’t take sides

California Gov. Gavin Newsom called for a quick end to the Los Angeles teachers’ strike that began Monday. But Newsom’s statement Monday didn’t take sides in the dispute, and it wasn’t clear how it might influence negotiations between the 35,000-member United Teachers Los Angeles and officials of the 640,000-student L.A. Unified School District over issues that include pay and class sizes. UTLA endorsed Newsom for governor before the June 2018 primary. “This impasse is disrupting the lives of to...

SpaceX rocket booster returns to Port of L.A., Dragon capsule soon to follow

SpaceX workers were busy Monday, Jan. 14, at the Port of Los Angeles preparing a Falcon 9 rocket booster for eventual re-flight.

After carrying the payload through the thickest parts of the atmosphere, the booster separated and descended back to Earth in a controlled burn of its engines. It then stuck the landing on an unm...

Federal campaign finance reform helps special interests

One of the new Democratic House majority’s top priorities is so-called campaign finance reform legislation. Contrary to the claims of its supporters, campaign finance reform legislation does not limit the influence of powerful special interests. Instead, it violates the First Amendment and burdens those seeking real change in government. The First Amendment of the Constitution forbids Congress from interfering in any way with any citizen’s ability to influence government policies. Spending money...

A lot of big-money promises: Newsom’s housing budget explained

No wonder Gov. Gavin Newsom dropped those hints last week about an upcoming “Marshall Plan” for affordable housing. Sure, he’d made ambitious campaign promises to combat California’s housing crisis: leading the effort to build 3.5 million units over the next seven years (an unprecedented rate), jacking up state subsidies for housing reserved for lower-income Californians, and easing regulations so it would be easier to build all types of new housing. But what would he deliver? We got the first g...
