Technicians and stage hands bustled in the background, readying the set for the Sept. 14 primetime premiere of “The Jay Leno Show.” The 59-year-old host continued past two 103-inch televisions, a practicing band and large detailed pictures from his vast car collection.

In a recent edition of the Glendale News-Press, Claudia Peschiutta interviewed people on whether they knew state Sen. Adam Schiff or Rep. James Rogan. I'm new to California, only lived here a year, but there are two things I can say. 1) Anyone who reads your paper sure knows those two.

Unemployment will remain high into 2011, but the local economy should begin to recover as entertainment industry spending grows and a surge of government jobs spurs activity, according to the latest forecast from the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corporation. While job losses in Glendale and Burbank are expected to continue in the short term, the addition of more than 3,000 San Fernando Valley jobs as part of the U.S. Census Bureau’s decennial survey will help boost the area economy, according to the forecast.

On-location film productions in Los Angeles County plummeted 19% in 2009 — the largest drop since the figure was first recorded in 1993 — contributing to the decline in working opportunities for the regional entertainment workforce, experts and observers said.
