Ferrer faces tough coronavirus questions from LA County supervisors

Pressed by leaders frustrated with the pace of reopening Los Angeles County’s giant, pandemic-humbled economy, Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer on Tuesday defended her department’s gradual approach. And she stood firm that it will be weeks before restrictions on schools and businesses will ease. The lengthy Q&A with the Board of Supervisors came as board members are getting earfuls from business interests and constituents, many indignant and confused as to why certain kinds of businesses ca...

Why the songs remain the same on this LA radio station

It’s a tough job programming to a mass audience. Case in point: K-SURF (1260 AM, 105.1 HD2), also known as LA Oldies. The station started playing the early days of rock ‘n’ roll, focusing primarily on the years of 1955-1970. And listeners were happy. Then the station added more songs from the 1970s. In general, most listeners remained happy, though a few grumbled about all the new songs being added. But new listeners found the station and overall it worked well. Later, songs from the 1980s start...

Faster transition to electric vehicles needed, Lung Association says

Even before the current outbreak of wildfires, the greater Los Angeles area perennially experienced the worst air pollution in the nation. The sprawling, automobile-centric region feeds smog into a geographic basin that often locks in the dirty air. The car and truck traffic also contribute to climate change, a primary contributor to the trend of ever-worsening wildfires and their impact on air quality. While the state has led the country in aggressively regulating emissions — and sells more ele...

How LA’s lost Bunker Hill neighborhood comes alive in a new book

In the early 1990s, when Nathan Marsak moved to Los Angeles after graduate school, he ended up at the bars near Central Library. He recalls locals pointing to the hill that stood outside the dingy windows and telling him how, decades earlier, it had been covered with mansions. Marsak would ask about those mansions. The locals would ask for another drink. “Then we would get drunk and mount a charge up to the hill looking for remnants of the old Bunker Hill,” the historian recalls by phone from hi...

Flash forward to Sunday — the first ever event at the giant SoFi Stadium, and the inaugural game at the new home of the L.A. Rams and the L.A. Chargers.
