Finding a way to safely reopen Disneyland and California theme parks

The COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on government finances has proven more nuanced than originally thought. While many entities have seen relatively minor revenue losses despite the recession, those that depend on travel and tourism related revenues are taking a major financial hit. Among the biggest victims is the city of Anaheim. And an extended closure of California theme parks could make matters considerably worse. At the state level, revenues continue to surprise on the upside. For the first thr...

12 places to see classic Southern California roadside architecture

Buildings shaped like unusual objects are part of the Southern California experience. What could be more L.A. than eating a doughnut underneath the giant replica of one at Randy’s Donuts. That kind of building is called programmatic architecture, although it has other names. Some people call it novelty architecture. And some people call it weird. It began with the car culture of the early 20th century, said Adrian Scott Fine, director of advocacy for the Los Angeles Conservancy, a non-profit org...

The study, led by researchers from Cedars-Sinai, found that an enzyme that helps COVID-19 infect the body also plays a role in inflammation in patients with IBD. “We chose these disorders because COVID-19, while known for attacking the lungs, frequently causes gastrointestinal symptoms,” ...

Disneyland should follow Knott’s Berry Farm’s lead and host food events for now

The best way that California theme parks can show state officials — and skeptical consumers — that they can operate safely is to … operate safely. Knott’s Berry Farm had the right idea two months ago. Take what state and local officials offer you and open in any way that you can. Knott’s reopened its gates for hard-ticket food festivals under state guidelines allowing outdoor dining. Since then in Southern California, SeaWorld San Diego and Legoland California have reopened parts of their theme ...

Three coronavirus cases reported at church fighting county’s pandemic rules

Los Angeles County health officials this week confirmed that three cases of COVID-19 have been reported at Grace Community Church in Sun Valley. The church has been in a legal battle with the county over the health order, which bars indoor worship services. A judge issued an order requiring the church to stop holding such services, but the church has been defying that order, and it could be held in contempt at a court hearing next month. An attorney for the church issued a statement Friday conde...
