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...

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...

Smoke advisory extended due to Bobcat and El Dorado fires

LOS ANGELES — As the Bobcat and El Dorado fires continued to spew smoke and ash into the air, regulators extended a smoke advisory for another day Tuesday across Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino counties.

A tale of two Southern California nursing homes in the era of coronavirus

Administrator Hrag Bekerian felt confident, he said, that they were taking the right precautions at Gem Transitional Care Center before the coronavirus struck. The four-star-rated nursing home on South Fair Oaks Avenue in Pasadena had closed its doors to visitors a week before the state’s guidance. Managers held frequent training sessions, screened all entrants and ramped up hand-washing checks. “We believe we were well-prepared,” said Bekerian, 31.

Home sellers’ asking prices jump 34% in California

Listing prices in California have risen 34% since January as inventory shriveled amid the pandemic. Zillow says the statewide median listing price for all types of existing residences was $735,000 as of Sept. 5 — up 34% since the start of the year. A key reason is owners seeing the heated competition for the few homes for sale. Listings statewide are down 46% from early September 2019. The year started with a 10% rise in list prices through mid-March as a robust economy was supporting eager hous...

‘Behind the 8-ball:’ Many Southern California nursing homes hit hard by coronavirus had prior issues

Evangelina Gonzalez survived the coronavirus. But she found herself lonely and confused inside her nursing home. The 98-year-old, who has dementia, had fallen a couple of times at Monterey Palms Health Care Center in the Coachella Valley, her son said. After contracting the virus last spring, she was placed in an isolation wing for six weeks. “I’ll try to call her and she’s just like, ‘Where are you, where are you? I’m hungry, I’m thirsty, I’m in pain,’” said Gustavo “Sky” Gonzalez of Cathedral ...

Los Angeles-Orange County rent hikes take biggest tumble in 10 years

Rent hikes in Los Angeles and Orange counties shrunk by the largest amount in 10 years, according to the Consumer Price Index. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics’ CPI shows the local cost of renting rose at a 3.1% annual rate in August vs. 5.5% a year earlier. That’s the largest one-year drop since 2010.

How feminist icon Helen Reddy created the hit ‘I Am Woman’ out of troubled times

Tilda Cobham-Hervey admits she really didn’t know a lot about singer Helen Reddy when the script for the biopic “I Am Woman” reached her several years ago. “At the time, I knew the song ‘I Am Woman’ and I knew Helen Reddy’s name, but I’m very ashamed that I didn’t know a lot more about her,” she says. “And it has been one of my greatest joys to learn about her life. “She’s a truly extraordinary woman, and it deeply changed me now that I’ve gone through this incredible process of just learning ab...

Southern California’s ‘seriously delinquent’ mortgages at 7-year high

The number of “seriously delinquent” mortgages in Southern California have skyrocketed to levels not seen since 2013, a new study shows. CoreLogic’s monthly tracking of late-paying borrowers shows a steep rise since late winter of very late first mortgages — those “90 days or more past due, including loans in foreclosure.” Stubbornly high unemployment — 15.9% in July in the four-county region — has crushed many family finances and made house payments a challenge. In Los Angeles and Orange counti...

Southern California homebuilder sales jump 33% from pandemic low

Southern California homebuilders’ rebound from the pandemic continued in July with closed sales up one-third from April’s lockdown low. My trusty spreadsheet shows 1,635 completed sales of newly constructed residences in July — that’s up 33% from April when the economy was suffering its initial coronavirus shock. Home selling has been an economic bright spot as buyers take advantage of low mortgage rates while seeking bigger spaces. It’s been a wild year for builders. Yes, new home sales in the...

Temperatures will be slightly cooler this week, but the wind will pick up, causing fire risk

After record-setting heat throughout Southern California over the weekend, Labor Day provided a slight reprieve, which should continue early this week, though temperatures will remain in the mid-to-high-90s in some areas — and the specter of Santa Ana winds picking up could worsen fire conditions. In Los Angeles County, the weather was tempered Monday, Sept. 7, by a marine layer and wildfire smoke from fires burning in the Angeles National Forest and San Bernardino Mountains, according to the Na...

Could Southern California see all-time record heat this weekend?

The oppressive summer heat that descended on Southern California in late August is back — and this time the searing temperatures may set some all-time records while again bringing threats to public safety along with the possibility of rolling power blackouts and wildfires. Weather experts say the latest heat wave is likely to yield temperatures between 10 to 20 degrees above normal over the Labor Day weekend. Some Southern California cites removed from the cooler coastal areas — including Woodla...

Pomona fairgrounds ‘eerie’ without LA County Fair in 2020, CEO says

I’ve happily attended every LA County Fair since my arrival here in 1997. But my annual tradition, and perhaps yours too, has fallen by the wayside. Pomona’s fair isn’t taking place this year for the first time in 73 years, another victim of coronavirus. Fair CEO Miguel Santana wouldn’t venture a guess as to whether the Fair will take place in 2021, although he certainly hopes 2022, the Fair’s centennial, is a go.

Biddy Mason: 5 years a slave in San Bernardino, she became wealthy in DTLA

Her name was Bridget, but she was known as Biddy. Biddy Mason is one of the most consequential people ever to live in San Bernardino, a slave who became free, and, improbably, wealthy. Do you know her story? Not enough do. Here’s an abbreviated version. Born into slavery in 1818 in Georgia, Mason was acquired by a Mississippi farmer who, with a caravan of other Mormon converts, traveled to Salt Lake City, Utah, in 1848. Three years later, some 450 Mormons volunteered to start a colony in San Ber...

Police costs in Southern California: By the numbers

In raw, inflation-adjusted dollars, some Southern California cities more than doubled spending on law enforcement over a recent 16-year period, according to data examined by the Southern California News Group.

Alexander: By sitting it out, the athletes are making a point

For those who haven’t been paying attention, we bypassed the “stick to sports” offramp long ago. There is no going back. For those who complain that their sports viewing was disrupted this week because of stoppages triggered by the latest shooting of a Black man by police, the players who stood down Wednesday and Thursday in several sports were making a point. Yes, they perform for our entertainment, but they are first and foremost human beings who care about their society and their communities....
