Six candidates vie for three seats in San Fernando City Council election

Nail salon operators who have been fighting to reopen amid the coronavirus pandemic scored a major victory on Tuesday, Sept. 22, when the state authorized the businesses to resume limited operations, but don’t expect them to immediately open in Los Angeles County.

LA County looks on warily as coronavirus cases inch upward

The number of new coronavirus cases in Los Angeles County — assessed on average per day — began ticking back upward about a week ago, an early predicter of a possible new surge, though public health officials were still hopeful the county has put the worst of the pandemic in the past. Up until Sunday, the county experienced four straight days of increasing case counts, up to 1,343 cases on Saturday. Some of the increased reporting could be due to a backlog in cases. On Sunday, 991 new cases were...

As of Aug. 27, the countywide jail population was 13,280, up from a low of 11,723 just a few months ago.

Police reform is too important to be held up by politics

Late last month, Los Angeles protesters lined up outside City Hall and marched along the 101 Freeway to protest police brutality. “What do we want? Justice! When do we want it? Now!” they chanted. As similar cries reverberate across the country, the call for reform has finally reached Washington. This summer, Republicans and Democrats introduced their own separate police reform bills. Yet neither side seems willing to hash things out and agree on compromise legislation. Many Democrats want to re...

Los Angeles County reported 991 new cases of COVID-19 and 23 more deaths on Sunday, Sept. 20, bringing the county’s totals to 260,797 cases and 6,353 fatalities.

‘Body Politic’ profiles the people making democracy work

This is the time of year – in a presidential election year, that is – where any reporting on politics can’t help but lean toward that fast-approaching special Tuesday after the first Monday of November. You know the one I mean. In any other year, it would be commanding ALL the headlines, whereas this year, presidential politics have taken a backseat to the pandemic, protests and wildfires. OK, maybe that’s not quite right, given that our politics these days are like a black hole consuming the ga...
