Senate Bill 732 would enable yet another tax grab

The latest evidence that taxes are getting completely out of control in California is Senate Bill 732, a proposed law to invent a new tax district so yet another government agency can put tax hikes on the ballot. SB732 has its origins in a decision by the staff of the South Coast Air Quality Management District, more than a year ago, to pursue a plan to raise the sales tax in the district’s four-county area. The SCAQMD’s boundaries include the counties of Orange, Los Angeles, Riverside and San B...

5 local breweries to visit if you miss them at the LA Beer Festival this weekend

Austin Dillon learns pole position is no advantage at Auto Club Speedway

FONTANA – Starting a Cup race on the pole doesn’t seem to be much of an advantage at Auto Club Speedway. Austin Dillon turned in the fastest lap in the swirling wind on Friday, but struggled in the heat on Sunday and finished 10th, about half a lap behind race winner Kyle Busch. Only three of the 30 races held here have been won by the driver who started first. A minor brush with the wall, began Dillon’s downfall. It happened on Lap 55 while he was running in fifth, and he had to make an unsched...

Ask the Lawyer: Who do we sue if we don’t know exactly who committed the wrong?

Q: My wife was a patient at a hospital. She was injured as a result of their carelessness. We can’t say exactly who did what but among the nurses, doctors and the technicians who treated her, medical malpractice occurred. How do we know who to make a claim against? -F.D., Redondo Beach Ron Sokol A: There is a Latin phrase that describes the appropriate legal theory: Res ipsa loquiter. This means “the thing speaks for itself.” Negligence is inferred from the nature of the incident, which doe...

Los Angeles to close 3 power plants in aggressive move toward green energy
