New LAUSD board member — whoever it is — will need to bridge union, district divide

With all eyes focused on a strike by Los Angeles Unified’s 30,000 teachers, it was possible to forget the school board is still one member short. Who that member is matters — a lot. A special election on March 5 will determine who will fill the empty District 5 seat and enter a fraught atmosphere stemming from the stand-off between the teachers’ union and the district and the continuing debate over charter schools. The District 5 seat was left open when Board Member Ref Rodriguez stepped down la...

Loyal high school seniors are missing out on memories due to LAUSD teachers strike

Amid an era of high school sports when transferring schools is the norm, many local City Section boys basketball players in the middle of their senior season are feeling jilted by the LAUSD teachers’ strike, which has halted all L.A.

For others, it’s their first year on a varsity team after playing on the lower ...

Louis Posen of Van Nuys’ Hopeless Records looks back on 25 years of hard work, good times and punk rock

Hopeless Records started as a mere hobby for Los Angeles native Louis Posen, but it has turned into 25 years of blood, sweat and a whole lot of fun and punk rock music. Back in the early ’90s, Posen was a film student at Cal State Northridge and had just shot a music video for punk rock band NOFX when he was introduced to Huntington Beach band Guttermouth. The group basically dared Posen to put out its latest 7-inch, even though his only knowledge of the business side of music came from a book h...

Bob Hertzberg embraces an active final term in California Legislature

After more than a decade out of public office, Bob Hertzberg strode back into Sacramento four years ago to find state politics had changed. The game was different, with new rules and a new online playing field. The players were new, too, and no longer called him Mr. Speaker. Not all of them enjoyed what he viewed as a friendly hug, the way human beings used to. The one-time California Assembly boss, one-time Los Angeles mayoral contender and all-time big thinker said recently of his first term i...

Anticipated LA Unified strike has some parents planning to pull their kids out of school

It was nearly 30 years ago when Yanina Nunez was a student during the last Los Angeles Unified School District strike. She was a third grader at Harbor Elementary School. Nunez remembers the nine-day strike in 1989 as chaotic. “They would send us from one class to another,” she said. “There wasn’t a lot of supervision, they would just cram us in the auditorium. We would just get there and do nothing.” Now a parent of two, Nunez doesn’t want her children to go through the same experience she did,...
