LA County homeless count was something these Valley volunteers could not ignore

Thousands of people across Los Angeles County took to the streets this week, but it was not to march in support of a political cause. Instead they were volunteering in the homeless count, a now annual reminder of a pressing problem in Los Angeles that has become difficult for many to ignore. That inability to look the other way was what prompted eighth-grade math teacher Jose Fernandez to go straight from the LAUSD teacher strike that ended Tuesday to join the homeless count. Homelessness has be...

California’s net population outflow by van line shrinks 21%

California again had more outs than ins via major moving companies last year, but that gap shrank 21 percent as departures fell faster than arrivals. My trusty spreadsheet — filled with annual state-by-state migration stats from United, Allied and Atlas van lines — shows a continuation of the long-running decline in people moving, in or out of California, with exits slightly outnumbering arrivals. Van lines moves, which tend to be pricey relocations, are seen as a yardstick of executive-level op...
