FROM THIS EPISODE

A recent report from the Local Agency Formation Commission led San Fernando Valley secessionists to believe they could get their issue on next year's ballot. On Friday, Los Angeles bureaucrats issued a report that LAFCO's conclusions were wrong. City officials say it's important to clarify the difficulties and expense of creating a second city. Movement leaders claim LA the city is trying to keep the issue off the ballot. We hear from Richard Close, of Valley Vote, and Lisa Gritzner, chief-of-staff for Councilwoman Cindy Miscikowski who chairs the council's Ad Hoc Committee on Secession.
  • Newsmaker: Jim Hahn and Chief Parks - Today, for the first time since the election, Los Angeles Mayor-elect James Hahn appeared publicly with Police Chief Bernard Parks. The two met to discuss a wide range of public safety issues, including the proposed compressed work schedule preferred by Los Angeles police.
  • Reporter's Notebook: Potential Impact of Global Warming on the Southland - The national nonprofit, Environmental Defense, released a report today on the potential impacts of global warming in the Southland. The group's chief scientist, Michael Oppenheimer, details some of the consequences in the report, and reminds us that a good energy policy is also a good global warming policy.
