Newsom unveils tax relief, cash grants for small businesses

Newsom also said an emergency appropriation will be used to give small businesses up to $25,000 in cash grants. In addition, more cash is being set aside for a new busine...

The last supper for our California restaurants

The storefronts are emptying. A drive down Ventura Boulevard today is like a drive through a hockey player’s mouth: tooth, missing tooth, missing tooth, missing tooth, tooth. One by one, businesses small and large are failing, undone by Amazon, COVID-19, government incompetence and our maddening schitzo-refusal to follow mildly inconvenient health protocols like handwashing, mask-wearing and crowd-avoidance. The second wave is here. So is the first wave. As COVID-19 infections skyrocket and hosp...

5 best places serving mole in the San Fernando Valley for takeout and delivery

Back when I was a mere pup, I decided to take a bit of early retirement, and head for Mexico and Central America for a few months. Inspired by a deeply alternative volume called “The People’s Guide to Mexico,” I packed a battered canvas satchel with a change of jeans, some t-shirts and lots of Imodium, and traveled by train, bus and thumb from Tijuana to Guatemala City to Belize and back. Even today, many years later, I remember getting a ride with a fellow transporting some, ahem, herbal produc...

Southern California politicians weigh in: Was the 2020 election fair?

“DEAD PEOPLE VOTED” They didn’t, actually, but outgoing President Donald Trump tweeted that anyway, two weeks after an election in which he received nearly 6 million fewer votes than his opponent, President-elect Joe Biden. His declaration – an evidence-free claim that was flagged by Twitter as misleading – was just one of many salvos fired in the electoral faceoff he and others have waged since voting ended on Nov. 3. The sides are well known: Trump and many of his supporters insist the 2020 el...

With Harris’ U.S. Senate seat in the mix, Southern California leaders lobbying governor hard

Museum of the San Fernando Valley gives (virtual) viewers a window to our world

How many people driving along Van Nuys Boulevard know who Isaac Newton Van Nuys was, or what William Mulholland of Mulholland Highway did to turn a desert into a valley? I’m betting not many.

From the comfort of their homes, people who tend to skew a little older escape from the anxiety of the present to relax and explore the past when the valley was young and so were they.
