FROM THIS EPISODE

The Catalina fire is not out yet, but tourists are coming back anyway.  On the Catalina Island and in LA’s Griffith Park there’s debate about how to restore the beloved environments. Should natural ecosystems be rebuilt even if that means getting rid of tourist attractions?  What’s the best way to avoid more fires in the future? On Reporter’s Notebook, tomorrow’s LA school board elections could make a big difference. Do voters care?

Reporter's Notebook Voters Go the Polls Tuesday in School Board Elections

Voters have told pollsters that LA’s most important local issue is education.  But in the March School Board primaries, less than ten percent of those registered bothered to vote.  Two seats are still undecided, and there’s a lot at stake in the final elections.
