Los Angeles mag next month

CoverThe June issue of Los Angeles has John Powers' first Open City column since he left LA Weekly and LA Biz Observed's Mark Lacter on salaries around town, from Vin Scully's $3.5 million to Paul Magers' $2.3 million to Larry Mantle's $117,777 (in 2004) plus dozens of others — did you know that Michael Nelson, editor of The Tidings, makes $57,510, double what Cardinal Roger Mahony is paid a year? In the issue, Steve Oney details what how life has changed for the family and friends of Marine corporal Christopher Leon, one of 93 Los Angeles County residents to die in the Iraq war. Also, author Miles Corwin writes about crime scene cleaning companies, David Ferrell visits with local real estate agents, La Cucarcha cartoonist Lalo Alcaraz gives some advice, and answer man Chris Nichols offers that the longest street wholly within the Los Angeles city limits is Victory Boulevard across the Valley (17.76 miles from Burbank to West Hills), and the county's longest is Avenue J (40.41 miles across the Antelope Valley.) Stories are not yet online.

Noted: Los Angeles won twelve awards from the City and Regional Magazine Association, most of any magazine.
