MOrning Report

  • A Silver Lake couple threw a farewell party for a nearly 400-year-old painting they returned to authorities after discovering it had been stolen by the Nazis from the Polish National Museum. The painting — “Portrait of a Lady” by Melchior Geldorp — had hung in the dining room of opera singer Craig Gilmore and artist David Crocker for about a decade after they purchased it from a New York auction house.

  • Wendy Carrillo, a labor and civil rights activist from Boyle Heights, is running in the 34th Congressional District but 1st District Councilman Gil Cedillo is not. “At this point in our country’s history, the best place for me to be is right here in Los Angeles,” said Cedillo, who is running for re-election next year.
