    Steve Lopez: Labor unions the big loser in mayor's race

  • Turning the city of L.A. into a classroom

    Turning the city of L.A. into a classroom

    Many older L.A. buildings could collapse in an earthquake
    More than 1,000 old concrete buildings in Los Angeles and hundreds more throughout the county may be at risk of collapsing in a major earthquake, according to a Times analysis. By the most conservative estimate, as many as 50 of these buildings in the...
  • Woefully unprepared in earthquake country

    Woefully unprepared in earthquake country
    One little boy lay on his back with a leg gash so bad that bone and tissue protruded through his skin. Firefighters carried more injured students to a triage area, where one girl had blood streaming from a head wound and another had burns across her face....

    Near LAX, a once thriving community now stuck in economic limbo
