Success and failure of protected species in California

The 2019 theme for Earth Day is ‘protect our species’ so today we look at some that are threatened or near extinction in California. The California flag features a grizzly bear that roamed the state, stood 8 feet and weighed more than a ton. The bear was considered a threat to livestock and people and has been extinct since the 1920s. The California grizzly was designated the official state animal in 1953, 30 years after it was killed off. Gray wolves were the other large mammal to join the path...

Meet 3 Republicans already running against LA-area Rep. Katie Hill

Democrat Katie Hill unseated Republican Steve Knight by a surprisingly comfortable margin in the most-watched congressional election in Los Angeles County last November. She has gained an unusually high profile for a freshman member of the House of Representatives since arriving in Washington, D.C. And she’s off to a good start on fundraising for her first re-election campaign. None of that seems to be discouraging Republicans from aiming to recapture the 25th District next year. Angela Underwoo...

Visionary architect, curator, and big wave surfer Francois Perrin

Architect, curator, surfer, knight of the French government, partner, father, son, brother, and dear friend to many, Francois Perrin died on Monday in Ventura County, close to a favorite wave. He was from Paris but had been in Los Angeles for decades so was simultaneously both French and Californian. I really have no words sufficient for this so will let Alissa Walker’s tribute on Curbed LA stand. It deserves a full read but I’ve included some excerpts and quotes below. ‘He was a center of gr...

Canyon Montclair opens Friday, April 5 with Vince Neil

The wood in the green room at the Canyon Montclair is scraped and worn, and there’s a reason. “These doors came from the House of Blues,” said Lance Sterling. Sterling is an entrepreneur who helped build the House of Blues chain of nightclubs and now has his own burgeoning empire of concert venues. It will grow by one in April, when the Canyon Montclair opens its doors to the public. The opening night headliner will be Vince Neil, front man of Mötley Crüe. The green room doors traveled to the In...

Market slowdown lingers as February home sales drop 12%, CoreLogic reports

With the spring homebuying season getting into full swing and mortgage rates dropping, the local housing market is perking up, local agents say. The question is, will a recent slowdown linger or will sales get back to the frenetic pace seen in recent years? If a new housing report out Wednesday, March 27, is any indication, expect a slower spring this year. Last month saw Southern California home sales fall 11.7 percent from February 2018 levels, with just 13,466 houses, condos and townhomes cha...

For the third time, Schiff introduces Rim of the Valley bill to protect land in Simi Hills, Verdugo, Santa Susana and San Gabriel mountains

Maybe the third time is the charm. That could be the thinking behind U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Burbank, introducing for the third time a land preservation bill which would add more than 191,000 acres — called the Rim of the Valley Unit — to the already existing Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area. On Wednesday, Schiff joined with Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris, both Democrats, in re-introducing into the 116th Congress the bill which failed adoption in the two previous attemp...

Latino voting dreams not coming true for big parties

Both Democrats and Republicans have long harbored big dreams about Latino voters. Now, as California gets set for its first seemingly influential presidential primary in decades, the dreams of both parties may not be coming true. Here are their high hopes: Democrats in California and elsewhere want Latino voting rates to climb ever higher on the assumption those voters will always lean their way and guarantee victories next year and beyond. Republicans dream that Latinos will eventually shift th...
