Environmental groups sue Port of LA over pollution-reduction plant

NFL referee wants you to be a little more ‘Cuddly’

He will take the field for an NFL game in Jacksonville, and few people will know he’s such a dynamic, dual-threat performer. He’s not a player, coach, announcer or national anthem singer. He’s the referee. John Hussey is 56 years old, and he’s beginning his 19th year throwing flags in the NFL. (Career highlight: He was an official in Super Bowl 45 – 2010, Packers vs. Steelers). He’ll start on Sunday, Sept. 13 in the middle of the field in Jacksonville, Florida, as the Jaguars play host to the Co...

Here are the virtual events for this year’s LA Fleet Week

It’s Labor Day weekend, so you know what that means — L.A. Fleet Week is here. But this year will have a twist: Because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Fleet Week, which the previous four years has drawn as many as 250,000 visitors to San Pedro and Wilmington over the three-day weekend, had to go online only. That doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty to take in. But it does mean folks will need to enjoy in the customary U.S. Navy ship tours, concert performances and other military activities fro...

How the pandemic and protests led to the creation of super group Fear No Empire

After the coronavirus canceled the touring plans of Southern California bands Zebrahead, Death By Stereo and The Adolescents, the players in these bands found themselves quarantined at home with idle hands. It didn’t take long for Zebrahead vocalist Ali Tabatabaee to turn his frustrations into song lyrics. “We had been on tour with Sum 41 in Europe and we came home and the pandemic hit and then George Floyd was killed,” Tabatabaee said during a recent phone chat. He called up Zebrahead bassist B...

Temporary homeless shelters in San Pedro, Wilmington settling in after nearly 3 months

In their first few months of operation, three temporary homeless shelters in San Pedro and Wilmington have dealt with a coronavirus quarantine, a social-distancing “remodel” to provide more room among beds — and, not unexpectedly, have seen people both come and go. The long-awaited Bridge Home shelters, part of an ambitious city of Los Angeles initiative to set up temporary facilities for those who are homeless, which aim to prepare people for and move them into more permanent housing, opened in...

US changes COVID testing advice, bewildering experts

By MIKE STOBBE | AP Medical Writer NEW YORK — US health officials have sparked a wave of confusion after posting guidelines that coronavirus testing is not necessary for people who have been in close contact with infected people. The new guidance was posted earlier this week on the website of a federal agency, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The CDC previously had advised local health departments to test people who have been within 6 feet of an infected person for more than 15 mi...

LA County’s coronavirus caseload still declining, but will it last?

The number of daily coronavirus infections continued to drop on Tuesday, Aug. 25, in Los Angeles County, falling below the 1,000 mark for the first time since early June and potentially opening the door for the county to grant waivers for some children to return to school classrooms. Although case numbers are typically lower on Mondays and Tuesdays due to more limited testing results from the weekend, the county Department of Public Health reported 989 new confirmed cases Tuesday, along with 51 ...

At a Sylmar teacher’s maternity room, school is in session

A room at the maternity ward at Providence Holy Cross Medical Center in Mission Hills is full of the sound of third-graders’ voices. They’re echoing from the speakers in Janet Udomratsak’s laptop. “I’m not finished yet,” says a forlorn but honest voice, clearly in the middle of deep thought on the issue of “3 x 4.” Rows. Arrays. Columns. Answer… Computing….. Computing… and the chats start coming in. A collective answer. A collective “12.” And with that, a small victory for Udomratsak. “Good job!...

Attorneys for homeless facing encampment sweeps: LA leaders ‘in contempt’ of judge’s order

A judge in April struck down a city code that allowed sanitation crews to cart away belongings stored in a public area, using the reason that those items are bulky. But attorneys representing homeless individuals and their advocates say the city is acting “in contempt” of that order by continuing to tell encampment residents that the rule is being enforced. Over the past two weeks, Los Angeles sanitation crews have posted notices telling homeless individuals living at encampments that they are p...

What are the greatest Top 40 radio stations ever? Here’s my top 15 list

I didn’t see it until earlier this month, but in August 2017, Radio Ink (radioink.com) ran a story on the greatest top-40 radio stations of all time. You can read it yourself at tinyurl.com/rw0823. It’s an interesting read, though in my opinion it is an impossible list to create. Even the two “programming experts” — Lee Abrams and Randy Michaels — didn’t agree. I myself have some ideas, but I am in no way qualified to find the “greatest” simply because I have not heard them all. Nor can I use my...
