LA City Council Members Seek To Build Statue Of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg


LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Several members of the Los Angeles City Council have proposed building a statue of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg here in the City of Angels.

Ginsburg died last Friday at the age of 87. Today’s LA City Council meeting adjourned in her honor.

“Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a champion of race and gender equality. She was determined, fearless, resilient and a fierce advocate for women’s rights and civil rights,” LA City Council President Nury Martinez said in a statement. “It’s impossible to overstate the incredible impact she had on women across the nation. A City of Los Angeles statue honoring her would be a lasting tribute to a woman whose life-changing work will outlive us all.”

Southland Restaurant Chain Sizzler Files For Bankruptcy


LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Sizzler, the Orange County-based restaurant chain known for its moderately priced steaks and expansive salad bar, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy Monday.

The Mission Viejo-based chain, which operates 107 locations, blamed falling sales on the COVID-19 pandemic — reporting between $1 million and $10 million in liabilities and the same amount on assets, according to trade publication Restaurant Business.

“The filing is a direct result of the financial impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on the casual dining sector, particularly long-term indoor dining closures and landlords’ refusal to provide necessary rent abatement,” Chris Perkins, the president and chief services officer of Sizzler USA, said in a prepared statement.

The chain plans to keep all o...

Riverside County Poised To Move To Red Tier As Supervisor Set To Propose Motion To Accelerate Reopening

CORONA (CBSLA) — Riverside County is poised to move from the state’s purple to red tier on Tuesday, but at least one county supervisor says his district cannot afford to wait to reopen any longer.

Supervisor Jeff Hewitt has told reporters that the state’s unclear boundaries for reopening have put jobs, businesses and homes on the line, which is why he is expected to propose Tuesday that restaurants, wineries, places of worship, indoor offices and indoor malls reopen fully.

And it’s a plan that some county residents agree with.

“I think it’s enough. I think we should open,” Estella Salmeron, a Corona resident, said. “Our economy needs to get back, and I think we are all aware of the disease and we are protecting ourselves and I think it’s time to reopen.”

“Businesses n...

Families Weighing Pros And Cons Of Pandemic Airline Travel

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — With the holiday season fast approaching, you may be wondering does it make sense to travel again?

The travel industry is offering deep discounts – and unprecedented flexibility.

Kinsie and Jake Flame have always had a passion for traveling.

Itching to see the world again, the couple decided to book a family vacation to Mexico for thanksgiving and Paris for Christmas.

“Our airline tickets were a really great price,” she said. “All four of us to Paris for $1,500…you can’t beat that.”

Right now, France isn’t allowing Americans into the country, but the Flames are hopeful that will change before December.

“So we are the point that if we don’t get to go, that’s just the way it is. We will go next year and just re-book those flights,” Kinsey said...
