If the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit doesn't stop gay marriages from beginning on Wednesday afternoon, county officials are ready to marry gay couples. Dean Logan, L.A. County's Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk (RR/CC), announced today that office hours at the Norwalk headquarters would be extended on Wednesday. Gay marriages will be permitted on Wednesday starting at 5 p.m. Logan said his office will remain open to 8 p.m. that night to issue Marriage Licenses and to offer Civil Marriage ceremonies. All other services will not be offered and district offices throughout the county will operate with normal hours (8 a.m. to 5 p.m.).
