Rosemead Shooting

Six shot at Casa Latina. Los Angeles Times web article here. Nothing on the SGV Tribune site but an AP story, which looks to be a compilation of what appeared in the Times and a KCBS story. I expect/hope the Tribune will post something more expansive later today.

Free Flu Shots for Old Folks, Young Folks, and Sick Folks

Thursday, September 24, at Live Oak Park Community Center in Temple City, 9am to 11:30am. If you're over 50 or older than 18 months and 18 years old or younger, or if you have a chronic illness that compromises your immune system, they'll shoot you for free. If not, you gotta go someplace else.

Speaking of health care. . . .

Congressman Adam Schiff is holding a town hall on health care tonight, 7pm at the Alhambra Civic Center Library (101 S. First St). The chatter on the web is that both proponents and opponents of health care aim to pack the meeting to show support for their side, so if you want a seat you might need to show up early.
