Six months of pandemic photography in the Southern California

One day, this will all be over. Coronavirus will be gone and we’ll get back to normal. But what will we remember? For the past six months, almost every facet of our lives has changed – covered faces, empty shelves, remote learning and drive-thru everything. Our photographers have been working throughout this pandemic to tell the stories of the people of Southern California and record history for our posterity. For our photographers, it’s personal. Normally, when we cover a story we are uninvolve...

Sheriff’s Department claims Dijon Kizzee was shot after picking up pistol

LOS ANGELES — A Los Angeles County sheriff’s investigator said today that Dijon Kizzee picked up a loaded pistol that had fallen to the ground just before deputies fatally shot the 29-year-old man last month in the Westmont area. “At one point, Kizzee’s pistol drops to the ground, he bends over, reaches, picks up the gun and is shot while he stands with the gun in hand,” Homicide Bureau Capt. Kent Wegener said at a Thursday afternoon news conference where video footage of the Aug. 31 shooting wa...

Environmental groups sue Port of LA over pollution-reduction plant

The state’s clean-air watchdog agency, joined by anti-pollution activists and others, filed a lawsuit this week challenging Los Angeles’s approval of environmental documents aimed at reducing pollution at its port’s China Shipping Terminal. The Port of Los Angeles, in a statement, said the lawsuit will further delay its efforts to create “one of the cleanest” terminals in the world. The action by the South Coast Air Quality Management District, along with the Natural Resources Defense Council, w...

Coronavirus testing kiosk at Union Station foretells future of pandemic recovery

Andrew Raposa stood in line outside Union Station in Los Angeles on a recent Wednesday with a handful of friends waiting to be tested for the coronavirus at a unique walk-up kiosk. Unlike most of the testing sites throughout the county, this one operated by Curative in partnership with the city and county, did not require a car and it was located in a heavily trafficked area. That’s one of the reasons Raposa said he chose the spot as he lives in downtown L.A. and doesn’t own a car. People ta...

LAUSD campuses with low enrollment get additional relief to save teachers

In the face of mounting pressure from parents and staff for Los Angeles Unified to suspend its annual practice of shuffling teachers around classrooms based on student enrollment, the superintendent announced on Thursday, Sept. 17, that the district will provide additional relief to schools this year because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Campuses slated to lose teachers due to low enrollment might still lose a position or two, but the district hopes to soften the blow by allowing schools ...

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...

These stars of fall flower gardens are starting to appear for sale in nurseries

There is a Chinese proverb that says: “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.” This is a metaphor for doing something without further delay, even if it could have been done 20 years ago, since it is never too late to embark on a new venture and there is no time like the present to start. However, this proverb is not meant to be taken literally since although China, like the USA, has areas with mild winters, it also has Alaskan style winters in certain region...

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...

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...

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...

ANAHEIM — Jo Adell’s rookie season with the Angels — or as much of a season as has been possible in this pandemic-altered world — has not left him feeling too distraught. “This game is tough and you’re gonna have lumps and you know I knew I was gonna have some things I had to learn and I was gonna have a couple learning curves,” Adell said. “I definitely had my share. But I’m not down about it. I’m not sad. I’m learning. I’m taking notes every day about different things that are new to me and tr...

No emergency training for crew on dive boat where fire killed 34 in Southern California waters

By STEFANIE DAZIO and TOM KRISHER | Associated Press LOS ANGELES — Crew members of a Southern California dive boat told investigators they were not trained on emergency procedures before a fire broke out last year and killed 34 people, according to federal documents released Wednesday. Investigators say the cause of the predawn blaze aboard the Conception remains undetermined but a possible ignition point was phones and other electronics plugged into outlets. One crew member, Ryan Sims, told inv...

Coronavirus: Gavin Newsom says California has no restrictions preventing Pac-12 football’s restart

Governor Gavin Newsom on Wednesday said there is nothing in the California guidance to prevent Pac-12 teams from playing, a statement that seemingly contradicts his own rules. “There is nothing in the state guidelines that denies the Pac-12 from having conference games,” Newsom said in response to a question from the Bay Area News Group. “There is nothing that denies the games from occurring.” Newsom said he spoke this morning with Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott. “I want to make this crystal cl...

Sparks face Connecticut in elimination playoff game

“I feel like the season is just beginning. The regular season is great, but that’s not what you play for.” Candace Parker said it after the Sparks’ regular-season finale, and it was an apt summation of how a team like Los Angeles views any given year in the WNBA. The goal is a championship. There is never any doubt about making the playoffs. So the regular season becomes a place to develop an identity and solidify seeding for the postseason. So Thursday is when the “real” season begins for the N...

Los Angeles-Orange County’s 16.8% joblessness rate highest in U.S.

Los Angeles and Orange counties in July had the highest unemployment rate among the nation’s largest metropolitan areas as stiff pandemic limitations throttled businesses. My trusty spreadsheet, filled with a Bureau of Labor Statistics ranking of 51 regions with 1 million or more residents, tells me L.A.-O.C.’s 16.8% joblessness ranked No. 1 ahead of 16.4% in New York and Las Vegas. All three cities depend heavily on tourism, an industry hard-hit by pandemic-related lockdowns. Boston at 15.5% wa...
