While teachers picket in the rain, taxpayers fear getting soaked

Last Wednesday, a small cluster of rain-soaked teachers, students and supporters stood in a storm at the intersection of Topanga Canyon and Ventura boulevards, about halfway between Canoga Park High School and Woodland Hills Elementary. Motorists honked their support as they splashed past. Honking is free. The teachers of the Los Angeles Unified School District, the nation’s second largest, are in the center of a storm, hitting the bricks after contract talks collapsed, sending nearly 30,000 edu...

With little learning happening inside strike-humbled LAUSD schools, high achievers feel the pressure not to fall behind

Jaimie Lee and Dalia Elrih, juniors at Los Angeles Unified School District’s John Marshall High School, have the same ambitious class schedule: AP Chemistry, AP English, AP Environmental Science, AP Calculus and honors U.S. History. The two picketed with striking LAUSD teachers outside the school on Monday and joined a UTLA rally downtown. But in the days since, they’ve veered in different directions absent teachers — one hitting the books at school and the other at home — in an attempt to stay ...

Rams DB Marcus Peters tries to downplay ‘gumbo’ comments directed at Saints coach Sean Payton

THOUSAND OAKS – Chicken or seafood, onions, celery, peppers and a dash of personal pride. That’s the gumbo Rams cornerback Marcus Peters simmered for two months when it comes to the Saints. Or, Peters was just being playful in November, when he called out New Orleans coach Sean Payton for sideline trash-talking and said he would “see him soon” and “have a nice little bowl of gumbo together.” That’s the narrative that went through both teams’ headquarters Wednesday afternoon. Sign up for Home Tu...

25 years after the Northridge earthquake, another one could hit ‘any time.’ Are we safer?

A quarter century has passed, but David Miller will never forget the sound. “It was like there was a freight train under my house,” he said, recalling the moment 25 years ago Thursday, Jan. 17, when the Earth’s plates suddenly slipped along a previously unknown fault 11 miles beneath his Prairie Street home in Northridge.

LOS ANGELES – Two doinks, and then a bunch of pings for Dallas defensive lineman Antwaun Woods. As soon as the Chicago Bears’ field-goal attempt hit the goal post (twice) and fell short, and the world learned that the Dallas Cowboys would be coming west to play the Rams in the playoffs, it started. “As soon as the Eagles won and the clock said zero, I looked at my phone and I had about 50 requests for tickets,” Woods told reporters in Dallas this week. “Unfortunately, some will get the ‘no’ a...

Daneh Gallo, a fifth-grade teacher from Welby Way Elementary School, in West Hills, said she was not concerned about a pay raise but rather about her class size. “I had kids who were on a suicide watch and kids who were depressed,” she said, adding that with social media “the essence of our jobs has changed, but the district...

How cities took the lead in a new statewide law requiring pet stores to sell shelter animals only

The era of pet stores selling backyard-bred puppies was already waning in California as cities began banning the practice several years ago. Now, a statewide law that took effect Jan. 1 is expected to cover all the rest, making sure that any dog, cat or rabbit purchased at pet stores come from animal shelters or nonprofit rescue groups and not from any so-called puppy-mills. An adoptable female cat named Lightning waits for some attention in her multi-tiered enclosure at the Pet Food Express...

Review: Which Italian restaurant chain makes the best spaghetti and meatballs?

Have you ever wondered which of the big Italian restaurant chains makes the best spaghetti, or how they measure up against each other? Me, too. So I went on a marathon spaghetti binge to find out. Here’s what I learned. Maggiano’s Little Italy. When I lived in Chicago in the ’90s, I worked around the corner from the original Maggiano’s Little Italy. I ate there weekly not simply because it was convenient but because I thought their Italian food was genuinely very good. That was years before Magg...

As 2019 chimes in, LAUSD board members urge teachers to seek compromise and avoid strike

These 11 big stories happened in and around the San Fernando Valley in 2018

It’s been said the San Fernando Valley is that bucolic place — the L.A. suburb that gets short shrift and little attention from the moving and shaking, the hustle and bustle, over the hill in DTLA and the westside. That may be true, but don’t let that fool you into thinking there’s little news or not much happening in this place of early 2 million people. Sure, the Valley’s got its slow days. We’ve had them here in the newsroom. But in the bigger picture, the place the Kardashians call home, whe...
