Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

When Angelenos do Halloween, we go big. That means we may even have more than one costume lined up for our long weekend of partying. And this year, we've already got some great costumes in the mix, from a real-life version of Van Gogh's "Self Portrait With Felt Hat" to a throwback to Salt-N-Pepa. There's even a nod to Mayor Eric Garcetti and his curse-laden speech at an L.A. Kings victory event earlier this year.

We'll be putting together another gallery of costumes tomorrow, so if you (or your pet) have a great get-up to share, email us at with the subject line, "Halloween Costume." (And do tell us your inspiration just in case we don't recognize the reference.)
