Sheriff’s New Helipad; New Park to Playa Trail | Feb. 10
On the Feb. 10 episode of SoCal Update, the L.A. County Sheriff gets heat for his personal helipad, plus an idea to get some sunshine and burn some calories this long weekend.
L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva is under fire for having a helipad built next to his home. Public Safety Correspondent Frank Stoltze has details on what motivated the decision and who is challenging it.
We’re coming up on a three-day holiday weekend, and if you are up for a good nature walk without leaving the city, Infrastructure Correspondent Sharon McNary recommends the Park to Playa Trail. The new Mark-Ridley Thomas bridge connects Kenneth Hahn State Recreation Area to the Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook and the Ballona Creek Bike Path, which ends in Playa del Rey.
