COVID Vaccine To Be In Short Supply Next Week Just As Residents 16 And Older Become Eligible

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — As Los Angeles County residents age 16 and older become eligible for the coronavirus vaccine next week, officials are expecting a dip in available doses.

(Getty Images) The drop-off in L.A. County’s supply of single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccines is the primary reason for the decreased availability. Dr. Paul Simon, the L.A. County Public Health Department’s chief science officer, said the county’s allocations of the two-dose Moderna and Pfizer vaccines will increase, though not enough to bridge the gap that roughly 74,000 fewer Johnson & Johnson vaccines will create. L.A. County’s allocation of vaccine for next week is expected to total 323,470, Simon said. The county received about 97,000 doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine this week, but will only receive about 20,000 next week.…

The National Weather Service says, “When thunder roars, go indoors” for a reason. Video posted on the US National Weather Service Green Bay Wisconsin Facebook page shows lightning strike a pine tree Thursday.

She said the students were distracted but excited to see the act of Mother Nature. No one was hurt and there was no damage to the school, Johnson said.

‘The lessons of this moment.’ The testimony by police brass at Derek Chauvin’s trial is unprecedented

An unprecedented lineup of law enforcement officers — including the Minneapolis police chief — took the stand at the murder trial of former officer Derek Chauvin, denouncing him for kneeling on the neck of George Floyd for more than nine minutes. As rare as it is for police-involved deaths to lead to a criminal trial — let alone a conviction — the sight of the top cop and other brass testifying against a former subordinate is even rarer. Chief Medaria Arradondo on Monday thoroughly rejected Chauvin’s actions and use of force during the arrest of Floyd last May as contrary to department policy. “Once there was no longer any resistance and clearly, when Mr. Floyd was no longer responsive and even motionless, to continue to apply that level of force to a person proned out, handcuffed behind their back — that in no way shape or form is anything that is by policy,” the police chief told the jury. “It is not part of our training, and it is certainly not part of our ethics or our values.” The piercing of the so-called blue wall…

LAPD investigators are rejecting most complaints against officers from summer protests; others still under review

Internal affairs investigators reviewing hundreds of allegations of misconduct and excessive force by other Los Angeles police officers during last summer’s mass protests against police brutality are ruling on the side of the officers in most cases. An internal report, submitted by LAPD Chief Michel Moore to the civilian Police Commission on Friday, noted the department had received more than 600 allegations against officers. Some of those were duplicate complaints about the same incident, and from those launched 210 investigations into 223 officers — 73 of which were related to the alleged use of non-deadly force, and five of which involved the alleged use of deadly force. Other allegations included inhumane treatment during arrests and unbecoming behavior and biased policing. Of the 73 allegations of less serious force, 33 have been resolved by the department — with zero resulting in a finding that the officers were in the wrong, Moore’s report said. The remaining 40 cases are still under investigation. Read the full story on LATimes.com.

Troubled California background check system is delaying hiring for elder care

Intensive care nurse Meynard Villa was on the verge of losing his family’s $150,000 investment in his new senior care home because he couldn’t hire workers while grappling with a glitchy state system designed to automate criminal background checks. The California Department of Social Services’ new portal is supposed to help home and community care providers, foster care families and even nannies and baby-sitters who apply for clearance under the state’s background check system. But only 38% of California’s nearly 60,000 licensed facilities are using the Guardian tool since it went live in January, while the rest find workarounds or remain frustrated. The department had promised that the $788,650 portal “will ensure background checks are completed faster and more efficiently, while making the process easier for applicants and agencies.” Villa said he lost two clients for his six-bed home in the Los Angeles-area city of Arcadia because he couldn’t hire the employees to care for them. “This problem is really annoying and really disappointing, because at the same time you’re trying to create a business, you’re trying to create jobs, you’re trying to help people,” Villa said.…

Prince Philip’s royal ceremonial funeral will take place April 17 at Windsor Castle — a slimmed-down service amid the COVID-19 pandemic that will be entirely closed to the public. Philip, also known as the Duke of Edinburgh, took part in planning his funeral and its focus on family was in accordance with his wishes. The 99-year-old duke, who died Friday, also took part in designing the modified Land Rover that will carry his coffin. “Although the ceremonial arrangements are reduced, the occasion will still celebrate and recognize the duke’s life and his more than 70 years of service to the Queen, the UK and the Commonwealth,” a palace spokesman said Saturday while speaking on condition of anonymity in line with policy. Prince Harry, Philip’s grandson who stepped away from royal duties last year and now lives in California, will attend the service along with other members of the royal family. His wife, the duchess of Sussex, who is pregnant, has been advised by her doctor not to attend. Palace officials said the ceremony would be conducted strictly in line with the British government’s COVID-19 guidelines,…

Proposal Calls For Digital Driver’s Licenses For Californians

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – A state lawmaker has proposed legislation that would pave the way for Californians to get digital driver’s licenses. Assemblyman Miguel Santiago (D-Downtown Los Angeles) introduced a bill back in February, that if approved, would allow Californians to use digital driver’s licenses and digital identification cards.

People would opt into the digital identification program using an app. Santiago’s bill would create a pilot project that gives the DMV until January of 2028 to put together a working program. The state of Iowa has already launched a similar program. “When you really take a look at it, you do everything on your cell phone, and you can do stock transactions, you have credit card information, I have my insurance paperwork on my cell phone, I have everything, except the one…
