Three bills authored by Anthony Portantino (D-La Cañada Flintridge) passed the Assembly recently, including one that would allow prostitutes branded with tattoos by their pimps to qualify for a free tattoo-removal program. Removing the markings will hopefully allow them to break free of prostitution and make a fresh start, Portantino said. Another of Portantino's bills that would ban the “open carry” of unloaded rifles or shotguns also passed the Assembly on a 44-29 vote.

As near as anyone can tell, Santa Claus as we know him today was inspired by an unlikely combination of events that began in 280 A.D. with the birth of one Nicholas Corbis-Bettman in Pataria, a city in Asia Minor. He was by all accounts a generous man of great material wealth, and one who liked to remain anonymous when helping the poor. Legend has it that he gave gifts late at night in order to keep his identity a secret. There are several variations of one of the most famous stories associated with Nicholas, a priest in the Christian church.

An episode in a Discovery Channel series about the military-style rescue of kidnapping victims around the globe will on Saturday spotlight a local man’s efforts to recover children from sexual exploitation and abuse by human traffickers. But part of what makes former bodyguard Ty Ritter’s story unique is that his missions to South America, the Middle East and other faraway lands are all-volunteer efforts funded primarily through donations to a nonprofit organization. “We fill a gap. Traffickers are operating like the drug cartels do. It’s an epidemic,” said Ritter during an interview at Taylor’s Steakhouse in La Cañada Flintridge, where over the years he’s made the social connections necessary to found and operate his La Crescenta-based nonprofit Project Child Save.
