Gov. Gavin Newsom, the class clown

As of the latest tally, after a year and change of school shutdowns, only 47% of California students have returned for on-campus instruction, including only 42% of secondary school students. The ‘distance learning’ has been going on for so long some parents have been forced to hire private tutors to teach their children Critical Race Theory and trans-sexual pronoun usage. In Los Angeles County, only 34% of students are back in school, which is just over one-third of students. Not that LAUSD kids...

Los Angeles County home sales drop 11% after $155,000 price jump

Here’s what my trusty spreadsheet found within DQNews/CoreLogic’s report on closed transactions in May from Los Angeles County … Sales: 7,800 existing and new residences s...

LA City Council supports state bill to legalize safe sites for drug users

Already had COVID-19? LA County health officials say you still need a vaccination

LOS ANGELES — Continuing to urge residents to get vaccinated, particularly as a highly infectious “Delta” variant of COVID-19 spreads, county officials stressed on Tuesday, June 22, that people who were previously infected with COVID still need to get the vaccine, because their natural immunity won’t last. County Supervisor Hilda Solis said during Tuesday’s board meeting that she asked a parent over the weekend if his children were vaccinated, and he said no because “they’ve already had COVID.” ...

May’s homebuying dip raises 5 questions for Southern California

Southern California homebuying took a surprising dip in May, raising the possibility that super-heated bidding wars and record price gains have forced potential owners out of the market. In another odd economic twist of the pandemic era, 23,956 new and existing homes sold in May, according to DQNews/CoreLogic. In what’s traditionally a prime homebuying month, those purchases in six local counties were down 8% from April. My trusty spreadsheet tells me that since 1988, May sales average 5.4% abov...

LA County urges employers to verify workers’ vaccine status despite honor system

Saying COVID-19 is now “a pandemic of unvaccinated people,” Los Angeles County’s public health director urged employers on Monday, June 21, to verify workers’ vaccination status to determine if they should be wearing masks at work, despite the state allowing a self-attestation honor system. Although she expressed optimism that workers in the county will continue “doing what’s right” and being honest about their vaccination status, Barbara Ferrer said the threat of COVID-19 variants — such as the...

California’s tourism industry can recover, if we help it

Last year was the most challenging period in our resort’s history.  But I am optimistic about 2021. Our resort is once again bustling with guests. We have recalled more than 500 employees to the property, and will continue to offer additional laid-off employees the opportunity to return as business conditions permit. We offered property-wide raises for all hourly employees, and a quick on-ramp for all employees to receive full-time benefits. We have heard similar reports of optimism from other S...

Repeal the 2001, 2002 authorizations for use of military force

On Thursday, the House of Representatives voted 268 to 161 to repeal the 2002 authorization for use of military force in Iraq. The AUMF, directed at the regime of Saddam Hussein, has long since lost its relevance. As with the 2001 AUMF passed after the attacks of Sept. 11, the 2002 AUMF wrongly cedes war-making powers to the executive branch while letting Congress shirk its constitutional authority. Both AUMFs should be repealed once and for all. The U.S. Constitution is clear. Article I, Sectio...

The California Dream lives despite California’s reality

Tom Motley lives in Denver. He’s been reading and seeing and hearing a lot about California of late, none of it good. He called last week to ask if I thought it was safe for his daughter to move here. I paused before answering. I’ve known Tom since college, so when I say “old friend”, I mean it literally. We’ve known each other so long an outright lie wouldn’t fly. Whatever spin I put on the California Dream (2021 edition) would have to have enough grit to pass the smell test. I scanned my menta...

Senate Bill 12 would kill housing construction

Gov. Gavin Newsom declared a state housing crisis in 2019, calling for 3.5 million new homes to meet the state’s booming economy. California business organizations joined with the Building Industry Association of Southern California, Orange County Business Council, and BizFed LA in supporting that declaration and call to action. Lack of housing supply in all price ranges is the underlying driver increasing homelessness, reducing housing affordability, higher rents, longer commutes, a dying middl...

Black history is more than Juneteenth, Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks

The first time Olani LaBeaud learned in detail about Juneteenth — a day in history that marks the end of slavery in America — was toward the end of high school, in an AP history class. She was in her first year of college at Cal State Long Beach when she heard about the Tulsa Massacre — a race riot in 1921 when mobs of White residents, some deputized and given weapons by city officials, attacked Black residents and destroyed homes, killing more than 800 people and wounding many others.

Half of new Southern California jobs are in ‘fun’ businesses

Providing fun once again powered Southern California’s pandemic-era jobs rebound with almost half of May’s hiring coming from leisure and hospitality industries previously hammered by “stay at home” orders and a reluctance to travel. My trusty spreadsheet, filled with state job figures, found local bosses had 7.28 million employees last month in the four counties covered by the Southern California News Group. That’s up 69,700 in a month vs. 69,400 hires in April and an average 50,100 monthly hir...
