New taxes

Los Angeles voters approved four tax measures Tuesday — for new parks, housing the homeless, building out community colleges and expanding the region’s public transit infrastructure. “Voters saw that we have big, scary problems … and they were more than willing to invest in solving those problems,” said L.A. City Councilman Mike Bonin. Los Angeles Times

A lone voice

The USC/Los Angeles Times Daybreak tracking poll correctly predicted Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump would appeal to conservative whites who sat out the 2012 presidential race. “You have to trust the numbers,” he said. “Don’t get distracted by all the things you think about plausibility,” said Arie Kapteyn, who designed and ran the poll.

Now this is a story: Jeffrey Toobin has a new book out on the kidnapping and trial of Patty Hearst. “If you want to understand the complexity and psychology of one of the greatest criminal stories in American history, read this book. It manages to cover all the bases and does so quite well,” writes former prosecutor Laurie Levenson. LA Review of Books

Ivory trade: A renowned pool cue maker was sentenced to two years of probation for unlawfully helping customers export ivory. “Illegal trafficking of any part of a protected species creates a demand that can lead to the extinction of these vulnerable populations,” said U.S. Atty. Eileen M. Decker. Los Angeles Times

DROUGHT AND CLIMATE

Sacramento will start the day with fog before temperatures reach a high of 76 degrees. San Francisco will be 72 and sunny. Los Angeles will be 90 and sunny. It will be sunny and 93 in Riverside. San Diego will be 88 and sunny.

AND FINALLY

Today’s California Memory comes from Cris B. Liban:

“It was 1991 — two years after college. I moved to California to start a new job in environmental consulting. As the plane descended into LAX, I asked the person beside me about the peculiar dark thundercloud hovering within a series of high-rises in a small area to the north (downtown L.A.). He said, ‘My friend, those are not clouds. That’s smog.’ Twenty-five years later, I’m still here enjoying the fruits of environmental activism that I have actively engaged in, leading the nation in environmental protection, stewardship and sustainability.”
