Kobe Bryant’s pilot counseled on flying in low visibility after improper flight path in 2015

Report: Lakers to waive DeMarcus Cousins, hope to add Markieff Morris

LOS ANGELES — On Friday evening, just as he has for almost every day this season, DeMarcus Cousins showed up for work. He hugged employees on his way to the locker room roughly two hours before tip-off against the Memphis Grizzlies. Then he sat inside under the locker bearing his last name. While he has not played this season since tearing his left ACL, Cousins has been a consistent presence around the team – even on trips. It’s likely one of the last such days Cousins will have this season as a...

Coronavirus causing dip in Chinese imports at Ports of L.A., Long Beach

The ongoing closure of factories in China due to the coronavirus continues bringing higher-than-normal cancellations of ships from that country to the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, officials said Friday, Feb. 22 — capping off a trio of events that have combined to slice cargo volumes at the nation’s largest port complex. “The virus has had a major impact on the global supply chain,” said Port of L.A. spokesman Phillip Sanfield. While cargo numbers generally fall off in February due to the...

Instead of another gated community, Porter Ranch and Chatsworth get 257 acres of lovely, preserved open space

It was once slated to become yet another suburban gated community with a bucolic name in the northern reaches of Porter Ranch and Chatsworth. But on Friday, there was little doubt that the 257-acre swath of hills near the Aliso Canyon Gas Storage Facility was to remain what it has long been — the home of the oaks, mountain lions, southern spotted owla and other flora and fauna. A ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday, February 22, 2020, officially opened the 257-acre, $6.7 million Hidden Creeks pa...

New bill would cap mobile home rent hikes statewide

California legislators passed a law last year that limited rent increases for tenants in buildings at least 15 years old. But the measure, AB 1482, did not include mobile homes, allowing park owners to raise space rent as much as they want. A new bill unveiled Friday, Feb. 21, would change that. Assembly member Sharon Quirk–Silva, D-Fullerton, unveiled a plan to place rent caps on all California mobile homes. Patterned after AB 1482, the bill would limit future increases to 5% a year plus the co...
