Community groups join LAUSD-led campaign to speak out about Newsom’s school reopening proposal

More than a half-dozen educational and community organizations have joined in a campaign led by the Los Angeles Unified School District to apply pressure on the state to adopt a school reopening plan that would, in their opinion, better address the needs of the state’s most vulnerable students.

LA City Council urges enforcement of mask mandates – via citations, fines, other penalties

The Los Angeles City Council took steps Wednesday, Jan. 13, to step up enforcement against people who flout rules requiring people to wear masks in public. The panel voted 14-0 to request that the city attorney write an ordinance that would set fines and penalties for refusing to wear a mask in an indoor, public area when asked by the facility’s management or operators. It also called for fines and penalties for refusing to wear a mask when invading someone’s person’s space. They also instructed...

Santa Ana considers $4 hour hazard pay for grocery, pharmacy workers

Santa Ana officials want grocery and pharmacy employees to get a temporary boost in their paychecks, hazard pay for serving as essential workers during the pandemic. The Santa Ana City Council asked city staff during a Tuesday night meeting to look into the pros and cons of drafting an ordinance, which would be a mandate, or a resolution, which would be largely symbolic. Councilwoman Thai Viet Phan wants a $4 an hour boost for grocery and pharmacy workers in companies that employ at least 300 em...

Hecklers shout insults at Rep. Lou Correa in airport

It was not immediately clear when or where the video was shot. It was posted on the YouTube page of The Healthy Alchemist, where other videos suggest the explosion in Nashville on Dec. 25 was the result of a missile strike, discuss a UFO sighting and claim that voting machines in Georgia were inappropriately c...

Now and 100 years ago, pandemics are (mostly) painful for high school sports

The pandemic forced some high school sports to be canceled or put on hold for more than a year. High school football was played in March. Does that sound familiar? It probably does if you were following the news 100 years ago … or paying attention to what has been happening with the local high schools since the spring. Though a century apart, the two biggest pandemics in U.S. history — the COVID-19 version and the Spanish Flu pandemic that erupted in 1918 — have a lot in common when it comes to ...

Getting personalized plates takes longer because of coronavirus

Q. I paid for black and gold vanity plates in May. I was to get them in six to eight weeks. I attempted to contact the Department of Motor Vehicles in various ways, talking to “Miles” the bot at the DMV website, on the phone and in person at a DMV office. No luck. I remembered that I requested the plates to be delivered to the Santa Ana DMV office so I then went there and a clerk told me that vanity plates are on back order. Apparently they are still made in prison, which I thought was an old fa...

In parts of Southern California, a renewed focus on security at public buildings following Capitol siege

A Los Angeles city councilman said he plans to introduce a motion calling for an assessment of City Hall’s security after the siege on the U.S. Capitol provided a stark reminder that public buildings in Southern California also could be targeted for violence. Some cities and counties, citing a lack of current threats, said Thursday, Jan. 7, that they are not discussing increasing the fortification of their buildings, which include infrastructure such as water treatment and power plants. But offi...

New year rings in new traffic and public safety laws in California

An assortment of new traffic laws will take effect in 2021 that could change the way Californians travel local and state roadways. The laws include measures to curb distracted driving, ensure emergency vehicles in action have proper space on local streets and to eliminate liabilities for anyone rescuing a child from a locked car. Another measure, not directly tied to traffic, explores new ways to alert the public when a need to evacuate arises. While some new laws begin Jan. 1, others won’t take...

Drivers at deadly street races, takeovers unfazed by COVID-19 restrictions

Drivers taking over intersections or racing high-revving, tricked-out cars aren’t fazed by pandemic shutdown orders. If anything, wide-open roads are an enticement. Sideshows, as they’re called, are an ongoing hazard throughout Southern California. Some police officers have even noticed an uptick in street takeovers since the coronavirus pandemic began. “Part of it is just what’s going on with the times, with COVID and lockdown,” said Los Angeles Police Sgt.

How Newport Beach ended up with 2 affordable housing units in 8 years

They say you get what you pay for, but when it comes to affordable housing, wealthy Southern California cities are paying to get almost nothing. And that’s exactly the way they want it. Between 2013 and 2021, the state of California allocated the city of Newport Beach a total of two units of affordable housing, defined by the state as low- or very low-income. The state gave Lake Forest, a city of similar size and population, 1,097 units. The state allocated the city of Beverly Hills three un...

Good, bad, ugly: Year’s 5 biggest environmental stories in Southern California

As in so many aspects of our lives, COVID-19 and President Trump played major roles in Southern California’s top environmental headlines for 2020. Overall, environmentalists won some and lost some — as did the Trump administration’s efforts to reduce burdens on businesses by trying to rollback more than 100 environmental regulations, ranging from California’s emissions standards to protections of natural preserves. Many of the administration’s proposed changes spurred legal challenges, some alre...

When a Christmas tip leads to a story about family, work and music

This year, when Susan Fryer tucked a gratuity check into her newspaper carrier’s Christmas card, she added a question: What might they do with the tip? She got an unexpected reply. It came from Esbeyde Sanchez, the 22-year-old daughter of the couple who deliver Fryer’s newspapers. “Such a simple question brings back a lifetime of memories for me,” Sanchez wrote Fryer. And with that, a tale unfolded about a Mexican American couple who worked every night, for nearly 30 years, to provide for their ...
