LA council looks at ways to improve homeless agency

LOS ANGELES — As city officials continue to evaluate approaches to combating the homelessness crisis, the Los Angeles City Council received an evaluation Friday of the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority’s governing structure in an effort to figure out how to best make the county-city coordinating agency more effective. “When we look around our city, I don’t have to tell you this, it is clear that what we’re doing is simply not working, and we have to ask ourselves if we’re truly committed t...

Judge gives Grace Community Church, LA County a chance to settle COVID case

LOS ANGELES — A judge has agreed to delay next week’s scheduled hearing on whether he should cancel a preliminary injunction he issued last summer against a Sun Valley church that flouted coronavirus health mandates, saying he wants to give lawyers for the house of worship and Los Angeles County time to discuss a possible settlement. The preliminary injunction was issued last Sept. 10 by Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mitchell L. Beckloff as a way of stemming the spread of the coronavirus, bas...

Sparks are flying from all directions this Fourth of July fireworks season

America may be divided on politics, race, gender, immigration, the economy, gun control, climate change, vaccine passports and myriad other issues, but at least we can all agree on how to celebrate our own nation’s birthday, right? Nope. Those “bonfires and illuminations” that future President John Adams encouraged citizens to light every Fourth of July are breathtaking bones of contention. If it isn’t fears over fires caused by misuse, it’s the nuisance factor or even a matter of health for tho...

Another water war washes over the MWD

In the final scene of “Chinatown,” the noir movie version of Los Angeles’s original water grab, anti-hero Jack Nicholson confronts the brutal triumph of the film’s “pillar of the establishment” villain. The cops don’t want to hear his story.  They invoke the racist trope that the law of the jungle rules in the ethnic enclave where the scene occurs: “Forget it, Jake, it’s Chinatown.” The real life water wars continue, however, and it remains to be seen who will win the current power struggle at t...

How June 15 reopening will change restaurants and dining in

You’re vaxxed, tired of takeout, weary of masks and dying to celebrate with dinner and drinks. The good news is that on Tuesday, June 15, restaurants will finally be allowed to serve at 100 percent capacity inside and out. But can we really expect everything to be the same? All that pent-up energy could create what one restaurateur calls “The Roaring 2020s,” a golden age of partying. But on the other hand, the lingering effects of more than a year of safety protocols, combined with the present h...

Delta variant of COVID-19 in LA County, but numbers remain low, health director says

The so-called “Delta” coronavirus variant that’s been blamed for massive infection rates in India and case spikes in parts of the United Kingdom has been detected in Los Angeles County since early April, but the numbers have remained low thanks to the overall plunge in virus transmission rates, the county’s public health director said Thursday, June 10. Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer warned, however, that the presence of a variant that is far more easily transmitted from person-to-person ...

COVID-19 lockdowns brought fast global ozone reductions, say JPL scientists

PASADENA — As the coronavirus pandemic slowed global commerce to a crawl in early 2020, emissions of nitrogen oxides — which create ozone, a danger to human health and climate — decreased 15% globally, with local reductions as high as 50%, according to a study published Wednesday, led by scientists at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. As a result of the lower NOx emissions, by June 2020, global ozone levels had dropped to a level that policymakers thought would take at least 15 years to reach by...

Proposed NoHo-to-Pasadena bus route still stirring up dissent in Eagle Rock

Advocates of mass transit are celebrating the approval of a new Metro bus line through Eagle Rock, which will connect North Hollywood to Pasadena, the likes of which they haven’t seen seen in 100 years. In the early 1900s, the Los Angeles Railway’s Eagle Rock Line shuttled its riders from the northeast L.A. suburb to downtown: Eagle Rock Boulevard … Colorado Boulevard … Townsend Street. Transfer.
