    Through our months of COVID cabin fever, at least we can take some pleasure in fantasizing about what we’re going to do once we get off pandemic parole. Long before Disneyland — even before Walt Disney moved here, in the summer of 1923 — Angelenos had the choice of dozens of themed mini-amusement parks right here. In carnival L.A., you could visit not just one but two ostrich farms, not just one but two private zoos, a monkey farm in Culver City and another in the Cahuenga Pass, and at least two lion farms: Jungleland, originally Goebel’s Lion Farm, in Thousand Oaks, and Gay’s Lion Farm, in El Monte, the place that MGM’s trademark snarling lions called home. Roller coasters galore, Ferris wheels, merry-go-rounds, hot-air balloon rides, an alligator farm in Lincoln Park that was a goldmine for headlines like “Gators Now Hatching—Good For Pets or Bags!” and “Saved From...

    For several days, a Valentine’s Day card mocking the death of George Floyd has been circulating among the Los Angeles police officers, causing a heated debate. On the card in question is a photo of Floyd, this African-American who died last May in Minneapolis under the blows of the police, accompanied by the inscription “You take my breath away” (Editor’s note: “Tu me coupes le souffle” ). This quote, which is apparently humorous and romantic in the context of Valentine’s Day, refers to the last words of George Floyd, who, under the pressure of the knee of a police officer, had repeatedly said “I can no longer breathe “, before dying. The dubious humor of these American police officers quickly sparked a lively controversy in the United States, in a climate still tense after the numerous demonstrations against racism and police violence that shook the country...

    Getty Derrick Rose guarding Russell Westbrook. Derrick Rose has been linked to the Los Angeles Lakers on a number of occasions. Prior to this past offseason, the two sides seemed like a perfect pairing. Recently, Rose was traded to the New York Knicks, which means it’s unlikely we see him with the Lakers anytime soon.

    States have opened mass inoculation sites and expanded eligibility for the coronavirus vaccine, but the supply is not increasing fast enough to keep up with the demand, The New York Times reported on Monday. States are steadily widening access to the vaccine beyond the most vulnerable groups but are not receiving enough doses to keep up. In California, for example, the state has already used 72% of its doses and has shortages in some areas, with the mass vaccination site at Dodger Stadium being closed over the weekend because Los Angeles ran out of its vaccine supply, Mayor Eric Garcetti said. “When vaccines do get to Los Angeles, we know how to administer them,” Garcetti told reporters. “But the problem is, we still aren’t receiving enough doses soon enough.” Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp said many districts around Atlanta have halted the scheduling of new vaccine appointments because federal deliveries were falling well below...

    While the Los Angeles Lakers have been linked in trade rumors and ideas to several big names ahead of the March 25 deadline, a recent article suggested that the team might be better off pursuing a “surprise” target such as Orlando Magic center Mo Bamba. As explained on Monday by Bleacher Report’s Zach Buckley, the Lakers are at a point where they likely “feel good enough” about their core players, given they are second in the Western Conference and among the NBA’s most efficient teams. However, it’s also possible they might try to catch “lightning in a bottle” by trading for Bamba, who has yet to live up to the lofty expectations he had as a lottery pick out of the University of Texas. “It wasn’t supposed to take this long for 2018’s No. 6 pick, but his stalled career could spark an interesting nature vs. nurture debate.

The 36-year-old third baseman batted .307 with four homers, 23 RBIs and an .860 OPS during the pandemic-shortened 2020 season. He hit .320 with two homers during the World Series before being pulled from the deciding Game 6 after testing positive for the coronavirus.

That will bring the total number of Californians eligible to 17 million to 20 million.

    LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- The union representing more than 35,000 Los Angeles teachers is pushing back against the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's long-awaited roadmap for getting students back to classrooms in the middle of a pandemic.The nation's top public health agency said Friday that in-person schooling can resume safely with masks, social distancing and other strategies, and vaccination of teachers, while important, is not a prerequisite for reopening. But the agency's guidance is just that - it cannot force schools to reopen, and CDC officials were careful to say they are not calling for a mandate that all U.S. schools be reopened.The new guidance includes many of the same measures previously backed by the CDC, but it suggests them more forcefully. It emphasizes that all of the recommendations must be implemented strictly and consistently to keep school safe. It also provides more detailed suggestions about what type of...

    By Lisa Baertlein LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - About 800 workers from the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach on Friday will be in the first wave of COVID-19 vaccinations for employees at the United States' busiest seaport complex, which has been hard hit by pandemic-related workforce disruptions and surging imports. Congress members last month joined state and local leaders in urging California officials to hasten COVID-19 vaccinations for employees at the ports amid high-stakes battles over which workers should be prioritized as essential. Such decisions at times are made at the local level, which has led to a patchwork of vaccination eligibility rules at a time when demand for COVID-19 vaccines far outstrips supply. The Long Beach Department of Health and Human Services organized the clinic, which earmarked 800 doses of the Moderna Inc vaccine for port workers. The event comes as mass inoculation sites in other parts of...

    The Los Angeles Lakers may be currently establishing an impressive performance in the 2020-21 NBA season, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that they would no longer seek major roster upgrades before the 2021 trade deadline.

    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – Health officials warned Thursday that the more-contagious strain of coronavirus first detected in the United Kingdom could cause a new surge in cases in California by April.

    With 45,639 deaths since the pandemic began, California, the most populous state in the United States, has ousted New York as the state of the country with the most deaths for COVID-19, according to this Thursday’s count from Johns Hopkins University. The state of New York – the fourth largest population behind Texas and Florida, in addition to California – had that tragic title since March of last year, when the coronavirus was especially primed with the Big Apple. The first wave of the pandemic was relatively mild in California, especially when compared to what happened on the east coast of the United States, but since late last year the situation in the west has worsened significantly and the cases have multiplied. In terms of infections, California is also the worst hit state in the country with 3,454,751, more than double that of New York. The worst situation,...
    A 90-year old Los Angeles resident has taken out two quarter-page newspaper ads to tell AT&T's CEO that his internet service is too slow.  Aaron Epstein spent $10,000 for the two ads to be featured in two separate editions of The Wall Street Journal on February 3 - despite friends and family urging him to use social media to get his message out.  But Epstein - who has been an AT&T customer since 1960 - does not have Twitter or Facebook, and decided to take a more old fashioned approach in order to get the attention of the telecommunication company's boss, John T. Stankey.  Epstein settled on taking out an ad in the Dallas, Texas edition of The Wall Street Journal, where the company is based.  He also placed an ad in the New York City edition of the same publication, hoping it would attract the attention of investors.   ...

    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – Mayor Eric Garcetti has the authority to “commandeer” hotel rooms to house the homeless and protect people’s lives during a local emergency like the COVID-19 pandemic, City Attorney Mike Feuer opined in a report to the City Council, submitted Wednesday. Feuer said Los Angeles Administrative Code Section 8.30 gives the mayor authority to “commandeer local private property as is needed for the protection of life and property of the people.” RELATED: LA County Adds 3,489 New COVID-19 Cases, 160 Deaths; Health Officials Warn Against Gathering For Holiday Weekend The city has to provide fair market value for the property, and Feuer said that because the demand for hotel and motel rooms has decreased during the pandemic, the rental value of the rooms is likely lower than historic market rates.

    In a day of confusion and frustration, Los Angeles vaccination sites that were slated to close Friday due to supply shortages ran out of doses sooner than expected and had to turn people away Thursday. The incident underscored the severe shortage of supply as California tries to expand vaccinations beyond medical workers and seniors to other groups including essential workers and teachers. Los Angeles County officials said they hope to expand eligibility in the coming weeks, but acknowledged there will be competition to get doses until the supply chain opens up. The sites will reopen when the city receives more vaccines, Mayor Eric Garcetti said — probably not until after the Presidents Day holiday. The city received a scant 16,000 doses this week, compared to 90,000 doses the week before. The reason for the substantial drop wasn’t clear, Garcetti said. He urged federal and state agencies to send vaccines...

The claim was seeking $25 million for “severe and substantial” damaged incurred by Kizzee’s father, Edwin, and $10 million for economic and injury costs to his estate “stemming from the intentional and/or negligent infliction of harm on Mr. Kizzee until the moment that he took his last breath.” RELATED: Rep.

    NEW YORK (AP) — Amanda Zahui B. is changing coasts after signing with Los Angeles on Thursday. The free-agent forward averaged 9.0 points, 8.5 rebounds and 1.2 blocks for New York last season. “Amanda Zahui B. brings rebounding, size and can space the floor from the center position,” Sparks general manager and coach Derek Fisher said. “She’s a great teammate and person who brings the type of toughness and work ethic we want in our locker room.

    The coronavirus variant first seen in Los Angeles in July now accounts for about 44% of new infections in Southern California and more than a third of new infections throughout the state, researchers reported Thursday. In addition, the strain has spread across the United States and to six countries across the globe, according to their study in the Journal of the American Medical Assn. It “remains uncertain” whether the genetic changes that characterize the fast-moving variant have improved its ability to transmit from person to person, or to make people infected with it sicker, a team from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles acknowledged in the JAMA report. But the virus’ rapid expansion in California is a cause for some concern, they wrote. The homegrown variant is distinct from other versions of the virus present in the U.S., including the B.1.1.7 strain from the United Kingdom and the B.1.351 strain...
