The distressed pelicans are getting a lot of sympathy – and press. The Los Angeles Times reports on the high costs of feeding the rescued birds, while the Daily Breeze notes, “State Fish and Game joins probe of pelican health problems.”
Political notes: Councilwoman Janice Hahn responds to a Daily Breeze editorial on her withdrawal from the shipyard negotiations. And the LA school board voted this week to place a parcel tax on the June ballot.
