"It is people in this jurisdiction, my jurisdiction, that go out there on the front line and fight for young black men, young black women being gunned down by law enforcement," he said¬†in the video, a masonic police badge logo¬†superimposed¬†next to his face. Both were also state-licensed security guards, records show. In late January, the group mailed letters to police chiefs across California announcing Henry's role as the head of the police force. Times staff writers Joseph Serna and Matt Hamilton¬†contributed to this report.

A motorcyclist died Wednesday morning when he slammed into a fire hydrant after shooting a gun into the air and fleeing police in the San Fernando Valley, authorities said. The incident lasted only minutes and started in Sun Valley, where LAPD officers on patrol responded to a 911 call about gunshots in the 12100 block of Sheldon Street, said Lt. "The chase was on," Caldera said. The motorcyclist rode so fast and recklessly that officers couldn't keep up and deferred to a helicopter to keep a line of sight, said Officer Norma Eisenman.
SAN FERNANDO >> An Acton man accused of supplying heroin to a Santa Clarita man, leaving him for dead and stealing his pickup truck is scheduled to be arraigned Friday on murder and other charges, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office announced Thursday.

A site where there has been five fatalities. Members of the Planning and Programming Committee entertained three options. For motorists looking to get to West San Fernando, Najarian suggested the connector between Salem and Sperry streets should suffice. Metro staff members estimate construction could begin as early as 2017 and last about two and a half years. Najarian said Metro will have to enact eminent-domain and buy properties housing several businesses in Los Angeles and Glendale to make way for the Salem/Sperry overpass.
Historical photos of Los Angeles, the San Fernando and San Gabriel valleys, and other major U.S. urban areas show wide open scenes, with fewer buildings. As recently as the 1950s, Los Angeles County was the biggest agriculture county in the United States. Does California's serious drought tell us we should return agriculture to urban areas? Even how food is brought to market is complicated. Urban farms won't replace California's Central Valley agricultural engine, but more local agriculture will certainly deliver more sensible food to our table.
Jerry Brown, ever thought that realizing his dream of connecting Los Angeles and San Francisco via bullet train would be simple or quick. But some of the obstacles coming up make one wonder whether the superfast train will ever be built. If you can't run trains above ground, and you can't run them under ground, where the heck can you run them? Still, community opposition isn't just NIMBYism. Run them above ground in the countryside, bypassing worries about aquifers and so on. Brown, you can PayPal me my 15% consultancy fee.
The night was especially moving for Fazio, because this year's accolades also went to the owners of Brent's Deli and Galpin Motors, folks he's known for years. "It's nice to be recognized in this manner along with people who I have tremendous respect and admiration for," he said, referring to Ron Peskin, owner of Brent's, and Bert Boeckmann of Galpin. The branches, founded in 1945, were originally located in North Hollywood, Van Nuys, San Fernando and Reseda. Husband Si, an aviation inventor and an engineer, was CEO and executive vice president.
The at-grade crossings in question are at Doran Street and West San Fernando Road and, just down the road, at Broadway and Brazil Street, where there have been five fatalities. The second alternative would close crossings. But Jolene Taylor, president of the Pelanconi Estates Homeowners Assn., said closing Doran would force motorists and commercial truck drivers exiting the eastbound Ventura Freeway at San Fernando Road to change their route to get on West San Fernando by taking Concord Street to Fairmont Avenue.
While you're likely to have a lot of company at Fern Dell, this attractive, shaded corner of Griffith Park is a nice place to spend a warm summer afternoon. SAN FERNANDO VALLEY/SANTA CLARITA VALLEY Even the hot San Fernando and Santa Clarita Valleys have their cool spots. Don't live near any of these trails? Not to worry; two more lists of 10 are linked below. Remember - all of these hikes are free with no required permits. The only prerequisite is a sense of adventure and an unwillingness to let summer heat get the best of you.
Some said their areas had been already been chopped up by three major freeways and a dozen dumps. So turn off that episode of Lost, put some Lady Gaga on your iPhone 3G, and let's take a closer look at yesterday's board meeting. It would have been entirely fair for the CHSRA to say "you had your chance" and look at only minor changes to that route. That might be worth revisiting. On the other hand, Palo Alto residents and elected officials flipped out even though the CHSRA was offering them a station, so maybe this isn't much of an answer.
"The 280,000 persons with developmental disabilities deserve nothing less. More than a dozen organizations within the San Fernando, Santa Clarita and Antelope valleys had come together to urge state lawmakers to restore funding that had long been cut. New Horizons, the North Hills-based agency that empowers special needs residents through training for independent travel, education, recreation, work and housing, was one of those agencies. "This should not be the end of rate adjustments but the beginning of a hard look of how fees are based.
Hundreds of angry residents of Acton, Agua Dulce, Sylmar, Santa Clarita, Shadow Hills, San Fernando and Pacoima made a show of force Tuesday at a Downtown L.A. Meeting of the California High Speed Rail Authority, with most of them protesting potential routes the train will take in Southern California. Construction of California's bullet train, the first of its kind in the U.S., is underway in Fresno, well to the north of L.A. To San Francisco in two hours and 40 minutes. How much will this beast cost? And the project will provide construction jobs.
