13 more coronavirus deaths reported in LA County; hospitalizations still inching downward

Los Angeles County reported 1,343 new cases of COVID-19 and 13 more deaths today, bringing the county’s totals to 259,817 cases and 6,330 fatalities. The number of people hospitalized with the virus dropped from 739 Friday to 732, with 31% of those people in intensive care units.

Entertainment industry treading water after 6 months of coronavirus restrictions

Entertainment happens in gathering places, which is what officials are trying to discourage to combat the novel coronavirus. When the COVID-19 pandemic broke out in March, few people could have imagined a world without places to go for entertainment: no amusement parks, no multiplexes for movies, no theaters or festival grounds for concerts, no casinos. But not only did all those venues close, most haven’t reopened. And as we head into fall, no one knows when they will come back. They are part o...

A’s Clinch Playoff Berth With Win Over Giants, Mariners loss

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — An AL West title will mean so much more than simply clinching a playoff berth given how the past two seasons have gone for the Oakland Athletics. Then, the A’s might let loose and celebrate a little. But not just yet. They secured a third straight playoff berth with Seattle’s loss to San Diego and a 6-0 win against the San Francisco Giants on Friday night, highlighted by Matt Olson’s three-run homer. “Clinching the playoffs is the goal every single year. Exciting, but winn...

Pandemic timeline in Southern California: Here’s how it all happened

“Coronavirus”: The first time that word appeared on this publication’s website in relation to the mysterious new disease emerging in China was Jan. 17, in a story about LAX being one of three U.S. airports to begin screening passengers.

What pandemic rebound? Only 27% of Southern California’s lost jobs replaced

Despite adding 30,600 workers in August, Southern California’s economy struggles to rebound, recovering just 27% of the jobs lost in the pandemic lockdown.

Eviction bans taking a bite out of landlords’ bottom line

Real estate agent Adam Bray-Ali hopes to retire someday off the income from his small portfolio of triplexes and four-plexes. But lately, his side job as a landlord isn’t going so well. Tenants in three of his 20 units stopped paying rent after the coronavirus pandemic hit in March. One tenant moved out owing $6,000. Now Bray-Ali is losing money on two of his five buildings, and he’s thinking about selling one of them. Thanks to forbearance, he’s been able to skip some mortgage payments and abou...

Rams, receiver Robert Woods close to ‘elite’ contract extension

THOUSAND OAKS — Robert Woods said he was happy to see fellow wide receiver Cooper Kupp sign a rich contract extension with the Rams last week. But there was a catch. It made Woods, the Rams’ most underpaid player, even more eager to work out a new deal of his own. Thursday, the player and the team sounded close to getting that done. Woods, the former Serra High (Gardena) and USC star, said he hopes to sign an extension as early as Friday, or at least before the Rams (1-0) play their second game ...

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...

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...
