The president of Occidental College, Jonathan Veitch, will resign in 2020 after completing 11 years at the helm, the board announced. He had difficult years, with campus protests for sexual violence and racial inequality. But Veitch said he does not regret it. A former professor of literature and history, he said he would initially take a sabbatical year and reflect on the history, tradition and value of liberal arts, especially as a compass for democracy. So, "who knows", he wrote in an email to the trustees. the Los Angeles Times
Is the attorney of Stormy Daniels working at an Echo Park office building now? Apparently so, according to Josh Barro and Ken White of the KCRW Left Right program and Center. In a recent show, Barro notes that a recent deposition in court by stripper and porn star Stormy Daniels lists her attorney, Michael Avenatti, as if she had an office at Sunset Boulevard in 1910 in Echo Park. This means that Avenatti, whose law firm was evicted from his oceanfront offices in Newport Beach last year, is working out of the tallest structure in the neighborhood: the 10-story Citibank Building.

The pursuit ended after about 15 minutes when the suspect crashed into the vehicle as he exited the freeway near Melrose Avenue.

A suspect robber was arrested after a time stall with the deputies of the sheriff in a mini market in the East L.A.

What's with all those big pipes that have been installed on portions of Riverside Drive in Lincoln Heights? These pipes will temporarily bring sewage while the sanitation department is preparing to repair an 80-year-old sewage line that engineers fear can collapse. In fact, there is the possibility that the failure of the 48 meter sewer can create a sinkhole under the Metrolink runways that cross the area. This prompted officials to move to the $ 17 million repair project. LAist.

Scene of the week
A video of a rare sighting of the bald eagle it was published on the Facebook page of Glassell Park Neighborhood by a Facebook user named Guadalupe Mendoza-de la Torre. There are a few images of the raptor, who appears to have a numbered card on his back, perched on what looks like a kind of pine in the Cazador Drive area, and another bird flying in the air. At one point it seems that a hawk falls over the eagle as it lowers on the branch.
So what does a bald eagle do at Glassell Park? We really do not know. But it seems to be the migratory season for the majestic bird, once close to the extinction. The wintering birds of prey join the small group of Bald Eagles in California between December and March, often near the rivers and pastures of the lakes.
