Motion to study options for removing Sheriff Alex Villanueva on hold

An effort to investigate ways to remove Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva from office was delayed on Tuesday, Oct. 27, after its main sponsor on the Board of Supervisors offered to give more time to his colleagues to weigh it. While no action was taken, there were early glimpses at what could be a remarkable debate — pitting a sheriff who calls him the most transparent in the county’s history against a board intent on exerting what it says is its rightful authority to manage him. The st...

Palmdale brewery sues LA County over one-day reservation rule

A Palmdale brewery is challenging Los Angeles County’s recently enacted health order that requires customers to make reservations one day in advance before visiting a brewery or winery without an in-house kitchen. Attorneys for Transplants Brewing contend the one-day advance reservation requirement isn’t imposed on breweries that have in-house kitchens. The requirement “places breweries and wineries which lack onsite kitchens in a competitive disadvantage vis-a-vis restaurants, breweries and win...

New health equity metric will help decide counties’ tier in pandemic tracking system

John MacArthur Plans to Hold Church in Defiance of Court Injunction; Keeps Using Wrong COVID-19 Stats

On Fox News Thursday night, John MacArthur said he is planning to have church on Sunday despite the California Superior Court preliminary injunction barring indoor church.

A statistic: One one hundredth of one percent of Californians have COVID, that’s the number and yet no one in the entire state of California is allowed to go inside a church. Doesn’t make sense.

County officials recently issued word that trick-or-treating was prohibited, then backed down from that stance on Wednesday — but nonetheless discouraged the annual tradition.
