For the San Fernando Valley’s economic centers, post-Northridge quake recovery has been 25 years in the making

Some effects of the Northridge earthquake have endured longer than others. A quarter-century later, several buildings that were damaged by the magnitude 6.7 temblor that rocked the region just before dawn on Jan. 17, 1994 are still vacant. But local officials say that while recovery in some San Fernando Valley areas has been slow, things are starting to turn around — such as in Panorama City and along Laurel Canyon Boulevard in North Hollywood. Meanwhile, such areas as Lankershim Boulevard have ...

$1.6 million for a house with no kitchen? Only in the Bay Area

A Silicon Valley home for sale for a cool $1.6 million has a built-in fire pit, a two-car garage and plenty of other amenities, but it’s missing one crucial feature — a kitchen. The four-bedroom, four-bathroom home in San Carlos suffered an accidental cooking fire about a year ago, and now all that remains of the kitchen is a blackened shell. The damage has rendered the home unlivable, but that major flaw isn’t stopping the owners from seeking a high price — a testament to the intense heat of th...

Eric Garcetti for president? He’d be a long shot — with reasons for hope

He’s a nice guy, a polished campaigner. He’s the mayor of one of the nation’s biggest cities. He’s also from the nation’s biggest state, a state that’s about to play a larger-than-usual role in his party’s presidential nomination process. If Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti enters the Democratic race for president in 2020 – and he’s expected to announce a decision soon — all those factors could help him, or just as easily harm him.

That may be true, but don’t let that fool you into thinking there’s little news or not much happening in this place of early 2 million people. Sure, the Valley’s got its slow days. We’ve had them here in the newsroom. But in the bigger picture, the place the Kardashians call home, whe...
