the fish live! - Since March 6, two goldfish have been living in LA River water in the newsroom at the LA Times. It's now June, and the fish are still doing swimmingly — although the tank could use a cleaning.

serial prowler - If you live in Arcadia, you might try using the AC at night instead of leaving the window open. Police warn that a petty thief has taken advantage of open windows and racked up more than 80 break-ins during summer months in Arcadia; now that it's warm, he might be coming for your jewelry and pocket change.

budget fun - Mayor Villaraigosa signed a $6.7 million budget for the city yesterday. The Daily News (grumpily?) focuses on the trash fee hike, which will fund new LAPD officers.
