Kings season in review: Up, downs and cautious optimism

The Kings careened into a rebuild in 2018 and have spent the past three seasons reconstructing an organization that fell into disrepair, right up through Thursday’s conclusion to the 2021 season. “As a team, I think we took steps in the right direction. Obviously there is still work left to be done,” team captain Anze Kopitar said. On the surface, there may not be much to point to in terms of progress. The Kings posted a .438 points percentage, down a bit from last year’s .457 and only marginall...

LA judge’s Skid Row housing order put on hold by appeals court

By FRED SHUSTER | City News Service LOS ANGELES — A federal appeals court put a brief hold Thursday on a judge’s order that the city and county of Los Angeles must offer housing to the homeless population of Skid Row by the middle of October. Attorneys for the county asked the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals two weeks ago for an emergency stay of U.S. District Judge David O. Carter’s April 20 housing order, arguing that the ruling is overly broad and causes more problems than it solves. In its...

As McDonald’s prepares to welcome more customers back for in-person dining, franchisees are gearing up to hire thousands of workers in Southern California.

McDonald’s will hold a Drive-Up Hiring Day from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday, May 18, with on-the-spot interviews available at hun...

Judge won’t let LA County out of lawsuit over Skid Row homeless

By FRED SHUSTER | City News Service LOS ANGELES — A day after taking the matter under submission, a judge on Tuesday rejected Los Angeles County’s bid to be dismissed from a lawsuit brought by a broad coalition of downtown businesses and residents seeking to force the city and county to step up their response to the rising number of homeless encampments on local streets and near freeways. U.S. District Judge David O. Carter determined that the county’s claims of immunity are “inapplicable” again...

LA city and county lawyers point fingers during homeless lawsuit hearing

By FRED SHUSTER | City News Service LOS ANGELES — A judge heard arguments Monday but made no decision on Los Angeles County’s bid to be dismissed from a lawsuit brought by a coalition of downtown businesses and residents seeking to force the city and county to step up their response to the rising number of homeless encampments on local streets and near freeways. The county contends in its motion, filed in Los Angeles federal court, that it already spends hundreds of millions of dollars each year...

LA County homeless agency snips at bureaucratic red tape with ‘universal’ housing application

The Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority announced Friday, May 7 that they are cutting some of the bureaucratic red tape that snag efforts to house people living on the streets, potentially shortening the amount of time it takes to process housing applications by at least 30 days. LAHSA officials say they have gotten numerous agencies that issue vouchers and provide permanent supportive housing onto the same page, and have at this point combined 15 different applications into a single, univer...

Gavin Newsom earned his recall with failed leadership

With the California Secretary of State’s confirmation that voters have qualified a recall of Gov. Gavin Newsom, the Golden State is one step closer to replacing the worst governor in state history and turning California toward a better future. Despite blaming others, Newsom needs only to look in a mirror to discover who caused this mess. The California Constitution requires 1.5 million verified signatures to qualify a recall election, but recall proponents turned in 2.1 million from people of al...

LA’s Little Tokyo renames intersection as Rose Ochi Square

The intersection of First and Judge John Aiso streets in Little Tokyo was dedicated on Tuesday, May 4, as Rose Ochi Square, honoring the pioneering Japanese American civic and civil rights leader. Ochi’s widower, Tom Ochi, and lobbyist Darlene Kuba, who requested the intersection be dedicated in Ochi’s honor, joined City Councilman Kevin de Leon, who introduced the motion dedicating the square, in speaking at the ceremony. “Rose Ochi, without a doubt, was an Angeleno and Japanese-American civil ...

Eli Broad was a passionate school reformer

Los Angeles’ most prominent civic leader, billionaire businessman Eli Broad, died last Friday, sparking an outpouring of praise for his many philanthropies. Broad had come to Los Angeles as a young entrepreneur in 1963 and made his fortune in homebuilding (KP Homes) and in finance. He saw it, he told one interviewer, as “a meritocracy (and) one of the few cities you can move to without the right family background, the right religious background, the right political background, and if you work ha...

Let’s keep what worked in health care during pandemic, change what didn’t

The coronavirus pandemic flipped the U.S. inside-out. Too many Americans passed away, even more became violently ill and alarmism brought the economy to a virtual standstill. But every cloud, or in this case more of a category five hurricane, has a silver lining. The experience acts as yet another case study showing the superiority of the U.S. healthcare system and the power of the free market when government steps out of the way. Policymakers should be careful to keep it that way. Although not ...

Is permanent housing the real homelessness solution?

The ultimate goal of city and county agencies trying to solve California’s homeless problem is to get this transient populace into permanent housing. But it turns out many of the homeless don’t want the kind of permanent units that are becoming more available as local, state and federal governments devote ever more money to getting them off the streets. No one knows precisely how many of the state’s approximately 161,000 homeless prefer to keep sleeping in tents and under tarps, as about two-thi...

LA officials urge $20 billion in state funding for homeless crisis

Assemblyman Miguel Santiago, D-Los Angeles, and two Los Angeles City Council members on Monday, May 3, joined a growing number of officials calling for the state to provide cities with $20 billion over five years to address the statewide homeless crisis. Calling homelessness in California “a growing dystopian nightmare of all cities,” Councilman Kevin de Leon, who represents Skid Row, urged the state to fund California cities’ homelessness efforts with $4 billion every year for five years. “We m...

Judge Carter got the cause of homelessness right but not the solution

In issuing a call for drastic steps to “decompress” Skid Row, U.S. Federal Judge David Carter was spot on with his analysis of the historical failings that have allowed this societal problem to fester on Los Angeles’ doorstep. Carter’s order granting a preliminary injunction in the Alliance case eloquently explains how decades of structural racism, financial neglect, a policy of “containment” and a weak local public sector response has produced the humanitarian crisis now confronting us. Unfortu...

Inflation and stagflation are the great instructors

Stagflation, which reigned during the presidency of Jimmy Carter, occurs during an unusual confluence of events: high inflation, low economic growth and high unemployment. Normally, high inflation happens during periods of rapid economic expansion and low unemployment. On the opposite side, low economic growth and high unemployment normally occur during periods of low inflation. Stagflation, which combines the worst of everything, is particularly hard on the middle and lower classes, whose membe...

LA councilmember renews effort to stop Chatsworth homeless housing project

A project in Chatsworth to help house the homeless — expected to break ground later this year after facing opposition from some neighbors, as well as support from others  — could be facing renewed opposition. Los Angeles City Councilman John Lee put forth a new effort this month to stop a project at 10243 N. Topanga Canyon Blvd. that was once known as Topanga Apartments. The developer submitted plans for the project, now called Lumina, to the city last October. In late 2019, the City Council app...

Just say no to federal overreach on tobacco products

If it doesn’t look like avocado toast, you can’t have it. That’s the message I get loud and clear from Uncle Sam when I read story after story about the Food and Drug Administration’s latest foray into stopping ordinary Americans from doing what ordinary Americans like to do. Take the latest news that the FDA is thinking about requiring tobacco companies to lower the nicotine in all cigarettes sold in the United States. Its goal is to fight nicotine addiction. The paternalists at the FDA are als...

Maxine Waters’ anti-police rhetoric is getting people of color killed

In June 2018, Rep. Maxine Waters, D-California, publicly exhorted her supporters to harass cabinet members of the Trump administration. At an outdoor rally in Los Angeles, Waters, with microphone in hand and amplifiers nearby, shouted: “Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up. And if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them they’re not welcome an...

Vaccines should return life to normal, not more of the same

Since the creation of Operation Warp Speed, we’ve been told the ticket out of the pandemic is getting the population vaccinated against COVID-19. It would be then, and only then, when life could return to normal. As part of the campaign to get us to take the shot, a bevy of politicians, news people, celebrities, and athletes have posted selfies getting jabbed in the arm. Even Facebook has offered up a special border that you can add to your profile picture, to let friends and family know that yo...

As people vote with their feet, California to lose a representative

Every ten years the Census Bureau counts the residents of the United States and determines the number of representatives in Congress that each state will have, based on its population. The total number of representatives will continue to be same, so states that gain population relative to the others gain additional representatives at the expense of states that have lost population. This year for the first time in California’s history, the state has lost a representative. It is hard evidence of t...

Biden’s tax plan could hit California hard

A cosmic convergence of events in Washington and Sacramento last week demonstrated how strongly federal and state tax systems are interconnected. President Joe Biden, it was revealed, will ask Congress this week to nearly double taxes on capital gains of the highest-income taxpayers, on top of an increase in taxes on their ordinary incomes he had proposed earlier to pay for infrastructure improvements. California’s budget is extraordinarily dependent on those same taxpayers, with the top 1% — ab...

Tens of thousands in LA County are overdue for second COVID-19 shot

While Los Angeles County continues to show progress in its COVID-19 vaccination efforts, figures released on Monday, April 26 showed that nearly 278,000 people in the county may be overdue for their second dose, possibly due to concerns about side effects or a belief that one shot is enough. As of last week, more than 4.4 million people in the county have received at least one vaccine dose, and nearly 2.6 million had received a second dose, according to Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer. But...

Coronavirus ‘swallowing’ people in India; crematoriums overwhelmed

NEW DELHI — With life-saving oxygen in short supply, family members in India are left on their own to ferry coronavirus patients from hospital to hospital in search of treatment as the country is engulfed in a devastating new surge of infections. Too often their efforts end in mourning. The stories are told in social media posts and television footage, showing desperate relatives pleading for oxygen outside hospitals or weeping in the street for loved ones who died waiting for treatment.

When the next pandemic hits — and sorry, yes, there will be a next pandemic — what wisdom will we have gleaned from the drama and trauma of COVID-19? “One of the things that we don’t appreciate very much until it happens is that new infectious diseases have emerged throughout the history of our civilization — they’re doing it now and they will always do it,” a reflective Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told the Naval Academy Foreign Affai...
