Marsha Hunt shares spotlight with charity

“I may have disappeared from the limelight in the 1950s, but I didn’t disappear from life. I think I made a difference.” – Marsha Hunt. On her 90th birthday in 2007, Marsha Hunt promised to live to be 100, if that’s how long it would take for her greatest idea, Thankful Giving, to become a Thanksgiving Day tradition in this country. She turned 103 last month, still waiting. Still vibrant and involved, still singing old standards at the piano in the Sherman Oaks home she bought in 1946 when she w...

Thousands march: Southland jammed today with George Floyd-propelled protests

With no letup in sight, thousands of protesters filled streets, parks and town squares all over Southern California on Saturday, as sweeping calls for justice after the in-custody death of Minnesotan George Floyd failed to show any sign of ebbing in the region. At least two dozen rallies were planned in Los Angeles County alone, from the steps of Downtown’s City Hall and LAPD headquarters downtown to the San Pedro harbor area to the San Fernando and San Gabriel valleys, with urban and suburban c...

Harriet Glickman, teacher who got ‘Peanuts’ its first black character, dies at 93

When Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in 1968, Harriet Glickman was so angry and outraged she asked herself what she could do to change the “fear, hate and violence” that led to his death. The answer ultimately led Glickman to help change the course of comic-strip history. Glickman, who persuaded Charles M. Schulz to introduce a black character into his enormously popular “Peanuts” comic strip in 1968, died late last month. She was 93. Glickman died at her home in Sherman Oaks from compli...

Primary exposes problems with early voting

In a simple world where every election contest involves two contestants, early voting is terrific. Not this week in California. It’s plain why things have long gone well for early voting in November runoff elections where the state’s top two “jungle primary” always puts the primary election’s top two vote-getters into runoffs for every state office. Other electoral choices like ballot propositions and runoff races for city and county offices also don’t change during the month before the fall vot...

LA councilman for San Pedro, Joe Buscaino, elected to lead National League of Cities, raising his political profile

Los Angeles City Councilman Joe Buscaino, who represents the Watts-to-San Pedro district, was recently elected as president of the National League of Cities, a post that could raise his political profile. The one-year post, which he assumed Saturday, Nov. 23 — succeeding Karen Freeman-Wilson, mayor of Gary, Indiana — puts Buscaino in a new, broader spotlight as he weighs his own political future in the coming years. A run for Los Angeles mayor or Los Angeles County Sheriff are options, with open...

Qantas Selling Access to LAX First Class Lounge

There was a time I would have argued that the Qantas first class lounge at LAX was the best lounge in the United States. That was before United opened its Polaris lounges, and American opened its Flagship First Class dining rooms. While I prefer the ambiance of the Star Alliance business class lounge's outdoor deck with fire pits at LAX, the sit down dining of the Qantas lounge makes it the most desirable place to spend time in the Tom Bradley international terminal prior to a flight.

Should 17 year olds have the right to vote in California?

No one protested back in the 1970s, when first Congress and then every state granted 18-year-old citizens the right to vote. If they were old enough to die for their country, went the reasoning, they were also old enough to help make its decisions. Now a top-ranking Democratic state legislator wants to expand the franchise to let 17-year-old Californians vote in primary elections if they will turn 18 before the next general elections. “If a voter is going to be eligible to vote in a general elec...

Coming together to resolve the teachers strike was L.A. at its best

It was pouring outside.  As I listened to the voices of tens of thousands of Angelenos, most of them teachers, outside my window, I was on the phone, encouraging both sides of the dispute to come back to the table, this time in City Hall. Between the voices outside and the frustration I heard on the phone, I couldn’t help think about Washington D.C., now in its longest government shutdown, and the inability of our national leaders to find common ground resulting in families suffering across our ...

Garcetti dives into LAUSD, UTLA strike talks, with presidential ambitions on the line

With tens of thousands of teachers striking all over the city he governs, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti stepped up to a City Hall podium last week with a message: “This is the time to make an agreement,” Garcetti said, the first day of a teacher strike that over the next five days would ripple across the region and the nation. Since the strike began, Garcetti, 47, has taken a very public stage with UTLA’s Alex Caputo-Pearl and district chief Austin Beutner. While Caputo-Pearl implored striking...

Massive tree falls on LACCD board trustee’s Burbank home

Firefighters told the family Wednesday night that the home wasn’t safe to inhabit, and as workers began removing the massive oak tree, Svo...

George H.W. Bush dodged photos with Mickey Mouse during a presidential campaign visit to Disneyland

George H.W. Bush kicked off the home stretch of his 1988 presidential run on a sweltering Labor Day with a parade down Disneyland’s Main Street U.S.A., but behind-the-scenes his press team was desperately trying to keep the then-vice president from being photographed with Mickey Mouse. Barbara Bush wrote in her memoir that she kept trying to stand between her husband and Mickey, but “several times George moved to my other side. Not an easy man to control.” The 41st president of the United States...

Are scooter startups really worth billions?

It’s been hard to miss the scooter startup wars opening fresh, techno-fueled rifts in Valley society in recent months. Another flavor of ride-sharing steed which sprouted seemingly overnight to clutter up sidewalks — drawing rapid-fire ire from city regulators apparently far more forgiving of traffic congestion if it’s delivered in the traditional, car-shaped capsule. Even in their best, most-groomed PR shots, the dockless carelessness of these slimline electrified scooters hums with an air o...

George Deukmejian proved that sometimes nice guys finish first

California’s Republican elite – yes, Virginia, there was once such a thing – gathered in the Capitol on Dec. 15, 1980, to cast the state’s 45 presidential electoral votes for Ronald Reagan. After the formalities, attendees lingered in the state Senate chambers, savoring the moment and believing that Reagan’s election was a harbinger of their party’s rising fortunes in a state that seemed to be, at the time, up for political grabs. Mike Curb, a former recording executive, drew the most attention ...
