Government shutdown in Southern California: Workers, businesses prepare themselves for empty payday

When the partial government shutdown took effect just before Christmas, Mark Muñoz, father to seven daughters, braced for the worst. The 40-year-old Ontario resident, who works as a fire captain with the U.S. Forest Service, has weathered shutdowns before; he said he was always retroactively paid for wages lost. But there was never a guarantee. And there’s no guarantee now. “It brings an enormous amount of stress,” said Munoz, who works primarily in the San Bernardino National Forest but also re...

For LA City Councilman Mitch Englander, being the odd man out was a way in

Mitchell Englander was usually vastly outnumbered when casting a vote as a member of the Los Angeles City Council, often saying “no” when most of his 14 colleagues had all but worn away their “aye” buttons. But when one is in the minority, one gets the opportunity to practice the art of eliciting compromise. So that was what Englander — who is officially stepping down on Jan. 1 from his role as the only Republican on a nonpartisan legislative body — said he did during his seven years as a counci...

How 72-year-old video savant Craig Wallenbrock spouted baseball’s fastest-growing coaching tree

What’s a ‘Valley Girl’? Local artists want to break the mold and reclaim it

Erin Stone was traveling in Kathmandu, Nepal, when a local asked what locals often do: Where are you from? The San Fernando Valley, Stone answered, and he surprised her with an immediate look of recognition. “Like, oh my god!” he teased in a high-pitched, nasal trill. For Stone, it was just one of the many moments in her life that reminded her of the “valley girl” persona and its global reach, codified by 80’s pop culture. In part, it was this ditsy, mall-frequenting suburban socialite caricatur...
