Of course, the biggest local story is the death of Johnny Carson. The LA Times has an obituary written by Daily Variety's Brian Lowry and focuses on his entertainment career. The Daily News takes an even more local look and examines how America's greatest talk show host effected Burbank. Johnny Carson was 79 years old.

The Daily News sticks with neighborhood stories and talks about the creation of Apartment Watch in Valley Glen and how it's improved living conditions in the valley area. The Times takes a look at high school student Stephanie Cisneros's short film about the gentrification of her Echo Park neighborhood.

The Times also notes the end of the Body Worlds exhibit at the California Center and how its last evening became a big nightlife event. Body Worlds 2 opens on January 29th.
