Having grown up in Los Angeles during the 1950s, having lived in Santa Maria attending Cal Poly at San Luis Obispo during the 1960s, and having resided in San Diego County for the last 18 years, I am wondering if that makes one a quasi-expert on the "Los Angelization" of the entire California coast? There certainly has been a massive movement out of Los Angeles, both north and south. Nowhere more than San Diego County can this mass migration of Angelenos be found. San Diego, formerly a sleepy little Navy town, having more in common with Tijuana than Los Angeles, has dedicated itself to imitating its neighbor to the north with accelerated yuppie fervor.

There was a sense of occasion at the Alex Theater in Glendale on Saturday night when Jeffrey Kahane led the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra in works by Hannah Lash, Chopin and Haydn. The day before, Kahane announced he would be leaving his post after the 2016-17 season, making his run as music director an even 20 years, the longest in the ensemble's history. The farewells began after intermission when the orchestra's executive director, Rachel Fine, announced that at the end of his tenure he would be named the orchestra's first conductor laureate.

An initiative aimed at stopping the "Los Angelization" of San Diego was approved by a wide margin in elections Tuesday, while a proposal to ban all high-rise development in San Francisco was defeated. And the most expensive election in Santa Barbara County history resulted in defeat for an environmental proposal that would have severely restricted onshore satellite oil facilities.

His is a name that has appeared in this publication's pages hundreds of times - as an author and as a subject. It's a name that calls up notions of the Latino struggle for civil rights and the radical Chicano movement in Los Angeles. It's also a name that initially made filmmaker Phillip Rodriguez groan when someone suggested the life behind the name as a subject for his next documentary. The legacy of former Los Angeles Times reporter and columnist Ruben Salazar has reached folklore heights since the journalist's suspicious death in 1970 at age 42. And therein lies Rodriguez's point of contention.

A phrase that strikes fear and loathing into the hearts of most urban communities in America is Los Angelesization . Or is it Los Angelization ? The phrase is of fairly recent origin, and it appears in both forms.

Preventing the Los Angelization of San Diego makes it so expensive that soon only the very wealthy will be able to afford to stay here. In other words, San Diego will be a victim of La Jollization. JOSEPH SHEA, El Cajon

Nancy Ray's article on Del Mar's history ("Del Mar's Past Was Colorful, Checkered," March 25) did an excellent job of capturing the spirit--both past and present--of our city. However, it contained one error which deserves correction. The descriptor "Del Martian" was coined not by jealous outsiders, as the story claimed, but by resident counterculturists in the late 1960s. It described those unconventional thinkers among us who fought to protect Del Mar against the galloping Los Angelization then (and now)

Contrary to some glaring misconceptions as to what Proposition A is all about, let me state: It is an initiative to protect our growth management plan, devised when Sen. Pete Wilson was our mayor, which allowed for certain designated lands not to be developed until 1995. Contrary to this plan, the City Council has, on numerous occasions, seen fit to shift areas designated for "future urbanization" to that of a "planned urban" status. Take a look at our I-15 corridor from Scripps Ranch to Rancho Bernardo, and you will have an idea where this leads us. Exceptions become the rule and violations an everyday affair.

Tradition dictates that those seeking election to the City Council or mayor's office here begin by asking the blessing of insiders of the clubby world of San Diego politics, the influential businessmen and Republican Party leaders who open the right doors and campaign pocketbooks with a few discreet telephone calls. Roger Allan Hedgecock didn't play by those rules.

Los Angeles has put some teeth in an ordinance that made it illegal to steal bottles, cans and other items from the city's curbside recycling bins. The City Council voted Wednesday to spend $64,000 to step up enforcement of the city's anti-scavenging ordinance, earmarking $15,000 for a police crackdown in the West San Fernando Valley and setting aside $49,000 for a possible expansion of the police patrols citywide.

Most film productions tend to spend a lot of time shooting a relatively narrow range of subject matter. "One Day on Earth" takes a slightly different approach. "Think globally, film locally" could be the motto for "Earth," a crowd-sourced film project originally founded to document a single 24-hour period with video snapshots from around the world. After holding three such events since 2010, the project's creators are now zooming in further with "Your Day. Your City. Your Future," a similar 24-hour collaboration that will take place across 11 American urban centers, including Los Angeles, and explore the issues and cultures poised to define cities over the next 20 years.

A former partner at the Los Angeles office of accounting giant KPMG was sentenced to 14 months in federal prison for giving confidential information about his firm's clients to a golfing buddy, who used it to make more than $1 million in profits by trading those companies' stocks. Scott London, 51, pleaded guilty to insider trading last year, admitting that he repeatedly tipped off a friend to the secrets of several KPMG clients, including Herbalife Ltd. and Skechers USA Inc., from 2010 to 2012.

Two former Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies have been charged with planting guns at a medical marijuana dispensary to arrest two men, one of whom prosecutors said was sentenced to a year in jail before the bad evidence was discovered.

Martinez was charged with two additional felony counts of perjury and one count of filing a false report.

In the battle for tourists, Los Angeles is losing ground to rivals Orlando, Fla., New York, and Chicago. L.A. County has broken its own record for annual visitors three years in a row - thanks to a rebounding economy, sunny California weather and popular tourist attractions. But L.A.'s tourist numbers are not growing fast enough to keep up with the nation's top three destinations, primarily because the city lacks enough hotel rooms to host more tourists. "We have an awful lot of things that are in our favor," said Robert Kleinhenz, chief economist at the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corp.

The historic Los Angeles Times Building, located at 1st and Spring streets in downtown Los Angeles, opened in 1935 and at the time was the largest building in the western U.S. designed and occupied entirely as a daily newspaper publishing operation.  Gordon B. Kaufmann designed the Times Building, which won a gold medal at the 1937 Paris Exposition for its Moderne architectural style. Kaufmann¿s other works include Hoover Dam on the Arizona- Nevada border and, locally, Santa Anita Park in Arcadia and the Athenaeum at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena.

The event:  “Spring Break: Destination Education,” staged carnival style at Sony Studios in Culver City, was a star-studded affair that had tweens, teens and their families lining up half an hour early on Saturday. The fourth annual event raised a record-breaking $1.5 million for City Year Los Angeles . The Hollywood hosts: Shemar Moore of “Criminal Minds” posed nearly nonstop for photos, hoisting one guest on his shoulders for a shot. Julie Bowen of “Modern Family” sang the praises of City Year corps members, who devote a year of their lives to serve as tutors, mentors and role models to students who might otherwise drop out of school.
