The L.A. Times Printing Plant Is Closing, Is This The Beginning of The End For Their Print Edition?

11:28 AM PDT on November 4, 2022

    Welcome to L.A. TACO’s daily news briefs, where we bring our loyal members, readers, and supporters the latest headlines about Los Angeles politics and culture. Stay informed and remember to always look at it closely.

    DTLA: The L.A. Times will stop printing their daily newspaper at their DTLA printing plant on Olympic Blvd in two years. After that, they will continue printing the paper through the Southern California News Group. "Times management did not provide further information on the future status of print production employees," Gregory Yee reports. Could this be the beginning of the end for the print edition of L.A.'s largest newspaper? [LAT]

    Los Angeles: As of right now, there's a 90 percent chance of rain on election day. Historically, conservative candidates have largely relied on constituents who vote in person rather than via mail to win elections. In a city where rain is rare and therefore has the power to impact almost every aspect of LA life when it does fall, could heavy rains have an impact on election results? [@VanceUlrich/Twitter]

    Los Angeles: Crosstown L.A., a mostly student-run newsroom, reports on the "mountains of money" being pumped into the mayor's race. In the primary, billionaire Rick Caruso spent more than $170 for every vote he received. Karen Bass spent less than $12. [Crosstown L.A.]

    —Does orange juice, garlic shots and kombucha really help your immune health? Kinda, but you'd be better off eating a variety of plants instead, New Scientist reports. [New Scientist]

    —Santa Monica: Another L.A. County public school was locked down after receiving a bomb threat. The threat stated that a bomb was scheduled to go off in 5 minutes. [KTLA]

    Los Angeles: Mayoral candidate Rick Caruso has narrowed Karen Bass' lead to a mere four points, according to a new poll co-sponsored by the L.A. Times. [LAT]

    Westchester: A man hospitalized after a gas leak at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) earlier this week remains in a coma, according to the victim's family. [NBC L.A.]

    Los Angeles: The Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA) will begin offering unhoused residents motel vouchers when the weather drops below a certain temperature. As L.A. TACO previously reported, despite L.A.'s reputation as being a sunny semi-arid landscape, more unhoused people die from hypothermia than in New York and San Francisco some years. [LAT]

    West Adams: A driver killed a man crossing West Adam's street and fled. The victim was in the crosswalk. [KTLA]
