    At 1 p.m. today, Thursday, Nov. 16, classic rock station KSWD "The Sound" 100.3 FM went off the air with side two of The Beatles' Abbey Road. The move came as a result of a deal The Sound's parent company, Entercom, struck with the FCC to divest three of its stations in exchange for regulatory approval of its $1.7 billion merger with CBS Radio, which also owns several stations in the L.A. market, including KROQ. The 100.3 FM frequency was sold to Educational Media Foundation for an undisclosed amount. EMF, based in Rocklin, owns 770 FM stations and translators and...

    President Trump got his wish Wednesday afternoon when the three UCLA basketball players busted in China for shoplifting thanked him for his help in getting them home. The three, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley and LiAngelo Ball — younger brother of Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball — also apologized to their families and their school, while thanking the Chinese cops for treating them well. “I would like to thank President Trump and the United States government for the help they provided. I am grateful to be back home and I will never make a mistake like this again. I...

    In the summer of 2015, Phoebe Barghouty was 23 years old and had a new master’s degree in journalism from Stanford—but little other experience—when she landed what most of her peers would consider a dream job: associate producer at Vice’s Los Angeles bureau. Though her job hadn’t technically started yet, her boss, then-Editor in Chief Jason Mojica, invited her to join the team at the L.A. Press Club Awards. After accepting an award for public service in journalism, the team from Vice—including Mojica and Kaj Larsen, the bureau chief who had hired Barghouty—celebrated with drinks. By the end of the...

    • Stop the public dog park and all other misuse of Veterans VA land • Establish humanitarian emergency "Sanctuary Tent City" to protect our war-injured homeless Veterans • Same way your boss protects illegal aliens, refugees It’s been brought to my attention by several people who attended last night’s Brentwood Community Council meeting where you spoke and announced today is supposedly the last day to register either support or opposition regarding the City of Los Angeles’s free public dog park, free public recreation center and free public parking lot on Veterans VA land. And why shouldn’t it be free to...

    A posh Los Angeles fitness center kicked a black pastor out and banned him for life because, the pastor says, a white employee overheard him expressing support for President Donald Trump. The employee allegedly charged at the pastor, Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, in a physically threatening manner — coming within inches of his face — and yelled “You support Donald Trump!” Peterson, 68, is now asking for an apology and seeking civil rights damages.

    This time targeting the increasingly-insufferable Jimmy Kimmel, a conservative street artist known for edgy, spontaneous work is at it again. Appearing on Los Angeles benches and telephone poles this morning were the latest pieces by “Sabo”, an otherwise-anonymous provocateur with a knack for generating headlines. With the ABC late night host increasingly moving toward political sermons and seemingly away from comedy, he presents a rich target for critics. Since the massacre in Las Vegas Sunday night, Kimmel has become particularly strident, lecturing the audience about gun control and other issues.

    Garcetti, whose travels have taken him to Atlanta, Phoenix, Boston, Chicago, Las Vegas and Berlin, among other places, in the last year. The mayor logged 112 days, or nearly one-third of his time, away from California over the last 12 months, according to his public calendar. In August alone, he was out of state for 19 days, travels that included vacationing in the Berkshires, meeting with firefighter union leaders in Boston and hobnobbing with billionaire Ron Perelman in the Hamptons. The Los Angeles Times analyzed Garcetti’s daily schedule and campaign filings, and news reports for the last year, counting from...

    The first group of Muslim refugees is set to arrive in the U.S. from resettlement camps in Australia. The first party to arrive in the states includes 52 people who are already in-transit from Australia to Los Angeles. In return, Australia will accept central American refugees from a camp in Costa Rica. Under an Obama-era deal over 1,200 Muslim migrants from Afghanistan, Iran, and Sri Lanka will arrive in the U.S. ... the resettlement deal is unfair to the U.S. as central American migrants do not pose a threat of radical Islamic terror to Australia.

    Stop me if you’ve heard this before: the crowd at StubHub Center for a San Diego Los Angeles Chargers game was awful. A huge portion of the crowd were Kansas City Chiefs fans, and for the fourth time in four games at the stadium (including two preseason contests) there were plenty of empty seats. And just a friendly reminder, StubHub only seats 27,000. How bad was it? Well, the Chargers knew the crowd was so pro-Chiefs that they didn’t even do player introductions over the public address system due to fears their own players would get booed. In their home...

    The IOC (International Olympic Committee) made a historic announcement by announcing two cities that will have won an Olympic bid: Los Angeles and Paris. Paris has won the bid for the 2024 Olympics, for the 100th anniversary of the 1924 Olympics which they hosted as well. Los Angeles will host the 2028 Olympics 4 years later. This is the first time that the IOC has made a dual announcement. This also comes with just two cities bidding for the 2024 summer games, with a deal that allowed Paris to go first to celebrate the anniversary. Los Angeles will go second,...
  • Shocker! LA Pension Gap Spirals Past $10 Billion

    CityWatch Los Angeles ^ | 14 SEPTEMBER 2017 | MARC JOFFE
    California pension worries most often focus on CalPERS and CalSTRS, the state’s two multi-employer behemoths. But the state has many other underfunded plans, and these city and county systems pose significant challenges for governments that contribute to them. The City of Los Angeles faces the largest municipal pension funding gap, measured in absolute dollar terms. According to the city’s 2016 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report, Los Angeles’ Net Pension Liability totaled $8.2 billion. Curiously, this number does not appear on the city’s government-wide balance sheet (called a Statement of Net Position). Instead, the $8.2 billion is reported as part of LA’s...

    breitbart ^ | 09/16/2017 | Chriss W Street
    Los Angeles is scrambling to make sure the City of Angeles soon starts collecting at least $50 million a year as the world’s top spot to buy recreational marijuana. The countdown clock is ticking down to January 2, 2018, when California joins Nevada, Colorado, Washington, Oregon, Massachusetts, Alaska and Washington DC as locations to legally buy marijuana for recreational use. California state bureaucrats and politicians are almost giddy over the $1.8 billion in annual tax revenue that the New Frontier Financials expects the state will collect from its 15 percent excise and dry-weight taxes on “weed.” But many of California’s...

    One of California’s largest Colorado River farm water districts is suing the state’s largest municipal water agency, charging that efforts to move farm water to cities are threatening the viability of agriculture in one of the oldest farming valleys on the river. The Palo Verde Irrigation District, in a suit filed last month in Riverside County Superior Court, is charging the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California with “thinly veiled attempts” to turn agricultural land it owns in the Blythe Valley into “water farms” by placing water consumption limits and fallowing requirements on the land in order that water from...

The moment was captured in a cellphone video that shows 83-year-old Wilford Burgess climbing up a ladder onto the roof of his home, first approaching the man and then pushing him off.

    Los Angeles County supervisors are expected to vote Tuesday on whether to restrict county employees from traveling to nine states that oppose the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, the Obama-era policy that protected undocumented children from being deported and which President Trump plans to end. The motion by supervisors Hilda Solis and Janice Hahn would ban LA County employees from several departments from vising Texas, Alabama, Arkansas, Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, Nebraska, South Carolina and West Virginia on county business. The only exception is if there is in an emergency response, according to the motion.

    The start of the NFL season is normally a pretty big deal across the country. Apparently Los Angeles and San Francisco didn't get the memo. The Rams and 49ers each opened their season at home Sunday, and both teams had to start their games with lots of empty seats in the stadium. The Rams are hosting the the Colts, but it seems like the los Angeles fans are not that concerned about being there to see it in person. [Snip] The 49ers are welcoming the Panthers, but not even Cam Newton could attract a crowd that wanted to show up...

    In 1513, Juan Ponce de Leon traveled to Florida to find the Fountain of Youth. Legend has it that there was a fountain that could restore one’s youth. The Fountain of Youth was never discovered. However, according to the Los Angles County Voter Registration list, it has become clear that Juan Ponce de Leon was only 2,455 miles short of his desired destination. According to the Election Integrity Project, California Inc. (EIPCa), the Los Angeles County Voter Registration list has approximately 12,000 registered voters over the age of 105. Of those, 1,000 registered voters were born in the 1800s. This...
