Why are unemployment checks months late? State audit aims to find out

Out-of-work Southern Californians have been waiting months for unemployment checks to arrive as the coronavirus pandemic rages and employed residents have mistakenly received piles of payments for which they didn’t ask. Now fed-up lawmakers have demanded an emergency audit of the state agency that handles those claims, the Employment Development Department. The respective chair and vice chair of California’s Joint Legislative Audit Committee, Assemblyman Rudy Salas, D-Bakersfield; and state Sen....

Two longtime Southern California horse trainers eye greener pastures

A couple of familiar faces from the training fraternity will be missing next Friday when Santa Anita begins the delayed start of its fall meeting. Jack Carava, who’s been a fixture in Southern California for 33 years, is staying in the industry but changing course. He’s jockey Tyler Baze’s new agent.

The real story of how the violent, drug-fueled ‘Goodfellas’ became a gangster classic

Martin Scorsese’s “Goodfellas” is not just an iconic gangster movie; it’s an all-time classic and a pop-culture touchstone that’s packed with one memorable scene after another, whether it’s that minutes-long shot tracking Ray Liotta’s Henry Hill and Lorraine Bracco’s Karen Hill through the bowels of the Copacabana club or Joe Pesci’s terrifying Tommy DeVito asking ominously if Henry thinks he’s “funny like a clown.” It’s also a film that Glenn Kenny, a veteran film journalist, has re-watched reg...

39% of California workforce has filed for jobless claims since March

Unemployment claims in California fell last week compared with the previous week, a welcome respite for the state, which has seen 8.6 million workers file jobless claims since coronavirus-linked business shutdowns began six months ago. An estimated 230,200 California workers filed first-time claims for jobless benefits during the week ending Sept. 12, down 13,200 from the 243,400 who filed claims in the week ending Sept. 5, the U.S. Labor Department reported Thursday. The decline snapped a three...

Disneyland could allow for social distancing at 50% capacity, data shows

Disneyland could theoretically let in 25,000 to 30,000 visitors per day and still allow for six feet of social distancing per person when the Anaheim theme park reopens with new COVID-19 health and safety protocols in place, according to new data analysis. Disneyland could comfortably accommodate 50% of the 110-acre theme park’s theoretical pre-COVID-19 attendance capacity, according to estimates by the Thinkwell Group. Thinkwell Group’s Brad Kissling calculated the COVID-19 physical-distancing ...

Census: 30% of Inland Empire late on rent, 17% in Los Angeles-Orange County

The pandemic’s economic pain has battered renters far more than it has homeowners as some fresh data from the U.S. Census Bureau reminds us. In Riverside and San Bernardino counties, 336,000 adults live in households that are behind on rent due in the week ended Aug. 31, according to the bureau. That’s 30% of all Inland Empire tenants and almost twice the rate in Los Angeles and Orange counties where 537,000 who live in rentals were late payers — 17% of all tenants. The Inland Empire payment cha...

California needs a new energy plan

The blackouts that rolled through California in August were the direct result of what happens when we plan based on wishful thinking and not science. Our planning and policies did not hold up to a real-world challenge and millions of Californians lost power during the hottest days of summer. As our state’s energy regulators and leaders plan for how to prevent blackouts in the future, our top priority should be to plan for a warming planet and more frequent and intense extreme weather events such...

Celebrating America’s great Constitution

America today marks the 233rd anniversary of when Americans in those hallowed halls in Philadelphia unleashed the Constitution onto the world. Celebrating our Declaration of Independence is important, but it was the Constitution that gave form to the republican form of government that endures to this day. While it may not be at the heart of the political debate, the Constitution remains in our hearts and, especially, on our minds as we contemplate the challenges facing California and America. As...

Bobcat fire crosses Highway 2, prompting evacuation warnings to the north

The Bobcat fire’s path expanded dramatically overnight into Thursday morning, Sept. 17, chewing through another 4,000 acres as it continued to head north, authorities said. The fire had consumed 50,539 acres, still with only 3% containment as of 7 a.m. Thursday, forest officials said.

Democratic squabbling doomed California’s ‘year of housing production.’ What happens in 2021?

Buffy Wicks was breastfeeding her four-week-old daughter in her fifth floor Capitol office when she saw on television her fellow lawmakers were finally about to vote on one of the few remaining housing bills that really mattered. Wicks, only a month removed from a C-section, raced with her newborn down to the state Assembly chamber to make one last plea for her colleagues to pass SB 1120. Following in the footsteps of a 2019 Oregon law, the proposal would have forced California single-family...

COVID-19 danger continues to drive joblessness in US

By PAUL WISEMAN | AP Economics Writer WASHINGTON — The number of Americans applying for unemployment benefits fell last week to 860,000, a historically high figure that reflects economic damage from the coronavirus outbreak. Before the pandemic hit the economy, the number signing up for jobless aid had never exceeded 700,000 in a week, even during the depths of the 2007-2009 Great Recession. Now they’ve topped 700,000 for 26 straight weeks. The Labor Department said Thursday that U.S. jobless cl...

300 and counting: Push by feds to arrest in US protests

By MICHAEL BALSAMO, ALANNA DURKIN RICHER and COLLEEN LONG | Associated Press WASHINGTON — In a private call with federal prosecutors across the country, Attorney General William Barr’s message was clear: aggressively go after demonstrators who cause violence. Barr pushed his U.S. attorneys to bring federal charges whenever they could, keeping a grip on cases even if a defendant could be tried instead in state court, according to officials with knowledge of last week’s call who were not authorize...

Media companies complain to LA sheriff about KPCC reporter’s treatment and arrest

LOS ANGELES — A coalition of 64 media organizations has called on the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department to withdraw a citation against KPCC and LAist reporter Josie Huang, who was pinned to the ground and handcuffed while covering the arrest of a demonstrator following the shooting of two deputies in Compton. The letter from the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press echoes other media groups that have disputed the sheriff’s version of the arrest, and calls on the department “to take...

USC, UCLA work together to get clarity on lifting of restrictions in L.A. County

An unprecedented situation called for an unusual maneuver. The athletic directors at USC and UCLA joined forces and held a joint Zoom call with Los Angeles County health officials Wednesday evening to clear a path for the football teams to begin practicing, according to sources familiar with the discussions. And it worked. “It was encouraging,” one source said. So encouraging that the teams are preparing to conduct full-squad practices once Pac-12 presidents approve that step, a move that could ...

State restrictions lifted for Pac-12 football teams in California, Oregon: The path back just got easier

Pac-12 football took a major step toward returning to play Wednesday as the governors of Oregon and California lifted the state restrictions preventing half the conference from conducting normal practices. If all goes well, the conference could restart its football season in late October or early November, bringing it into general alignment with the Big Ten, ACC, SEC and Big 12 during the season’s finishing stretch. The next step for the Pac-12 teams in California and Oregon — and it’s believed ...

Vietnamese American felon facing deportation gets backing from activists, elected leaders

Tin Nguyen arrived from Vietnam as a boy, in 1979, with hope for a better future in a new country. But his refugee story took a bad turn. As the only Vietnamese kid in his grade school classes, he was bullied. As a teen, he joined gangs and, as an adult, he committed crimes. Nguyen ended up doing 20 years for murder and robbery. But Nguyen turned his life around in prison. And, last year, after his sentence was commuted, he was given a chance at freedom. That’s when he was picked up for deportat...

Get a flu shot, Garcetti urges Angelenos amid coronavirus pandemic

Mayor Eric Garcetti urged all Los Angeles residents on Wednesday, Sept. 16, to get a flu shot before the typical season hits this fall to avoid possibly overwhelming hospitals with cases of influenza and COVID-19. “I need you to do one more thing that you add to that list to protect yourselves and your family and your loved ones,” Garcetti said. “Every Angeleno has a critical role to play in preventing a worst-case scenario. Doctors are already talking about (the flu) … saying this could be the ...

Buena Park mayor calls on Newsom to reopen Knott’s Berry Farm

The six-month closure of Knott’s Berry Farm has been “devastating” for the Buena Park theme park and a “disaster” for the city that depends on the 100-year-old institution to drive spending at area hotels, restaurants and businesses, according to Buena Park mayor Fred Smith. “Tourism is a big part of Buena Park’s economy,” Smith said during a press conference across from Disneyland. “Knott’s Berry Farm is the largest employer in our city.

If no post-Labor Day coronavirus surge, LA County could enter less risky recovery phase by October

Los Angeles County could move to the next, less risky tier of pandemic recovery by early October, if positive current trendlines hold, the county’s public health chief said on Wednesday, Sept. 16 — but only if Labor Day’s gatherings fail to fuel a COVID resurgence. County officials announced 31 more deaths Wednesday, for a total 6,303 people lost to the six-month outbreak. Also logged were 1,148 new cases, for a total of 256,148.

Re-elect Mike Garcia to represent 25th Congressional District

Mike Garcia was elected to Congress last May in a special election to fill the remainder of the term of former Rep. Katie Hill, who resigned in October 2019.
