County libraries in a financial bind; Los Feliz kitchen fire; car vs building in Boyle Heights

Libraries: The county library system, which operates branches in unincorporated East Los Angeles, faces a growing budget deficit as the cost of salaries, retiree benefits and other expenses have continued to grow.  Supervisor Janice Hahn warned of possible future cutbacks if officials can’t get the deficit under control.  KPCC
