Section 8 rent checks in jeopardy if shutdown lasts until March

Tenants getting federal rent subsidies have yet to be affected by the partial government shutdown, now in its fourth week. But big problems could arise for those renters and their landlords should the shutdown last until March. Local housing authorities serving about 125,000 Section 8 tenants in the region say rent payments will run out after February if the shutdown continues. And the mere uncertainty of future payments may impact those now reaching the top of years-long waiting lists, making i...

Penny Marshall to be honored with 12-hour ‘Laverne & Shirley’ marathon

Penny Marshall died in December leaving behind a legacy of films that she had produced and/or directed, such as “Big,” “Awakenings” and “A League of Their Own.” But to many she is probably best remembered for her starring role in “Laverne & Shirley.” The sitcom about two wacky friends and roommates, Laverne DeFazio (Marshall) and Shirley Feeney (Cindy Williams), and their adventures in late-1950s Milwaukee, lasted eight seasons and has become a part of television history. Marshall will be honore...

E-scooters, dockless bicycles gaining foothold in Southern California as LA County drops orders to remove them

Like Uber and Lyft before them, the latest Silicon Valley startups also showed up uninvited, dropping electric scooters, battery-powered bicycles and other dockless, micro-mobile rentals onto streets and sidewalks of Southern California. The guerrilla marketing strategy aimed at busting the monopoly of the single-passenger car created multiple battlefronts in today’s “Scooter Wars,” sending some cities to the courts claiming they are a nuisance and an eyesore, and others writing regulations that...

Saints have been super at their home in playoffs, and it started against the Rams

It all started against the Rams, not that anyone from the organization is around to remember it. That’s because it was Dec. 2000 when the New Orleans Saints beat the then-St. Louis Rams in a wild-card-round playoff game at the Superdome. Current Rams coach Sean McVay had yet to turn 14. The Saints edged the Rams 31-28 that day and started a seven-game, 18-year streak of consecutive home playoff victories, one that will be tested when McVay and the Rams visit the Superdome on Sunday for the NFC c...

LeBron James participates in Tuesday shootaround a day ahead of medical reevaluation

LOS ANGELES – Ahead of a much anticipated medical evaluation on Wednesday morning, some needed normalcy was on display at Tuesday’s Lakers shootaround. LeBron James shot 3-pointers in a quiet corner of the UCLA Health Training Center court alongside teammate Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, the most visible sign in nearly a month that his recovery from a strained left groin is moving forward. Luke Walton said that James was limited to shooting and passing in the morning session, ahead of the Lakers’ ga...

‘Extreme Makeover: Home Edition’ is returning with a brand-new season on HGTV

Before Chip and Joanna Gaines and “Fixer Upper,” before the “Property Brothers” twins Jonathan and Drew Scott, before practically anyone besides Bob Vila and “This Old House,” there was “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.” And just like an old house that’s seen better days but could be revitalized with some shiplap paneling, HGTV is renovating the old ABC franchise that ended its nine-year run in 2012 and putting “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” back on the market. “This is a big win for HGTV and w...

Britain’s May faces no-confidence vote after Brexit plan crushed

By JILL LAWLESS, DANICA KIRKA and GREGORY KATZ LONDON — British lawmakers on Tuesday overwhelmingly rejected Prime Minister Theresa May’s divorce deal with the European Union, plunging the Brexit process into chaos and leading to a no-confidence vote in her government. Moments after the vote, May said it was only right to test whether the government still had lawmakers’ support to carry on.

Trump’s nominee for attorney general asserts his independence

By ERIC TUCKER and MICHAEL BALSAMO WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump’s nominee for attorney general asserted independence from the White House on Tuesday, saying he believed that Russia had tried to interfere in the 2016 presidential election, that the special counsel investigation shadowing Trump is not a witch hunt and that his predecessor was right to recuse himself from the probe. Those comments by William Barr at his Senate confirmation hearing pointedly departed from Trump’s own views an...

Los Angeles County’s lodging industry has plans to add 299 more hotels after 34 opened the past two years.
