Today, the Los Angeles City Hall turns 90 years old 💫 Built in 1928 in a quirky mix of styles, the top of the building pays homage to an ancient mausoleum. The rotunda dome is elaborately tiled and is a "must-see" for any trip to L.A. #discoverLA

A big welcome to Michael Jasso, @TheCityofSac's new Assistant City Manager overseeing economic development. We lured him away from Chicago, where he was head of economic development for Cook County. He's got what it takes to help us grow existing businesses and attract new ones.

See where to eat near @bancstadium after @LAFC's inaugural home game this Sunday ⚽ P.S. Tomorrow is officially #LAFC Day and iconic buildings will light up black and gold 😉 #LosAngeles

May is Bike month! If you'd like to see nature in a way that’s better than sitting in your car, bring your family and friends to the 8th annual Great Scott Bike and Walk Event on Sunday, May 6.

It's City Hall's 90th birthday!

On April 26 1928, people gathered from every corner of the city to kick off a three-day civic celebration and dedicate the new home of our city’s government. #TBT

Still lovin my Rams from Missouri

All y’all saying pay Donald must know nothing abt contracts!

NFC west picked up a few good players. I still think the Rams will win the West and possibly the SB

C'mon ppl, Donald is getting his...stop

Rosen talking a big game tell he plays this defense haha

Our first round draft pick cooks might have a bright future 😆👍🏻

Calm down folks, they will take care of Donald

Full trust in Les and Sean after watching the picks so far.

LA RAMS ALL DAY EVERY DAY

LB'S should be the focus.

Guys need a beer? Come on let's go shots on me !

All our picks need to be lb and oline!!!

Big Bad LA Rams!!

Super Bowl here we come

All great until they ask you for 100,000 for seat rights..

Nothing is wrong with trading a high pick for a player that's young and already showing what these guys haven't done, and that's play in the league at a high level with upside to work with.

What's up Ramily

As of right now he's better than Calvin Ridley or any of those wide receivers that's in the draft because he has that experience and consistently over his career with 1,000 yards or better

They will have to cut 2 big contracts to pay donald smh... ppl need to know we dont have the cap right now

I wouldn't mind seeing the quality back up to Gurley getting drafted

Davis is the back up for gurley

Draft some good receivers and defensive backs

Can't wait to welcome Rosen with all those pick 6s hahaha

What lol cut Barron to pay Donald........

We gotta cut barron probably to pay donald

we don't have a 1st round we don't pick till round 4

Who the hell is he

And only cost us $8 million. Great finance team. If we got a first round there would have been a huge signing bonus plus rookie contract. Money we don't have at the moment

Rams could of had Calvin Ridley at 23, hope Cooks is the real deal and signs a multi-year extension at a reasonable cost. Go RAMS!

With only one year of team control then he walks. 😀

Cooks best available player at #23. Don't sweat it.

Great pick! If we can sign him to a long term deal.

We could have drafted Kirt,Ridley, DJ Chark. All can stretch the field and would have been locked 🔒 in for cheap.

I hope our 1st round pick sticks around longer than our 2nd round pick.

This kid has a chance to be very special

Speedster 🏃🏿‍♂️💨💨💨

Pretty fingernails 🙄💅🏽

Used wisely

Most areas will see one last warmer than normal day today as high pressure shifts east of the state. A low pressure system moving into Norcal will bring down daytime temperatures closer to normal with scattered showers over the northern portions of the state. ...

I was at my daughter's swim practice this evening, and precisely as the kids got out of the pool at 7pm, the wind started blowing; making goosebumps aplenty!

Oh good Lord. Thankful for the cooling off. Just NOT ready for summer.

Looks like come Saturday , people will be wearing their winter parkas in redding again

Glad for the cool down. Being heat/cold intolerant sux but my fibro flares bad when its hot out.

Still quite warm for Wednesday. Temperatures trend down to near or below normal by Friday. Scattered showers enter the forecast picture for Friday and the weekend, while a few thunderstorms could affect the Sierra high country areas by early Wednesday evening. ...

Umm... perhaps some bad news. That shot was taken from Huntington Beach *City* Beach. The state beach is a mile away from the pier.

*I live in Huntington Beach.

One of the great gifts from heaven🤩
