It's all caught on video.

Police caught up to a man giving chase through North Hollywood, first in an SUV, then on foot.

According to CBS Los Angeles, the man was wanted on a felony warrant. Officers started following him as he drove southbound on Van Nuys Boulevard.

The suspect drove into the 6700 block of Goodland Avenue, a residential area, and ran out of the car and into a home, CBS reported. They caught the chase on video (see above).

Agree with Tristen, David et al. A news site I'll frequent is one that doesn't just do the shock value reporting (making you want to stay under the covers forever), but rather reporting that looks at various aspects of living in the neighborhood. Some of the recommendations from David and dare I say it "Do Not Take.." are good for starters. And to TLO, reporters often times are hypocrits and refer to NoHo for anything bad happening, but then use the vanity tag for new developments, clean ups, parking openings, etc. As long as they're consistent in their naming conventions, then we won't call it out.

I use NoHo simply because it's shorter. :-) I'll be sending you some love. I have a lot of sites clamoring. Doing the best I can! Remember, this is treading water while we wait to unveil our big plans. IMO, Hale Patch has already done more in 3 weeks than AOL Patch did in 3 years. Can't wait to share!

Looking forward to hearing about your positive changes at Patch. Sounds like AOL was holding you back. The term NoHo, believe it or not, is primarily for the Arts District. If you're going to use North Hollywood for the greater North Hollywood area, then it would be accurate, but by using "NoHo," it gives the impression this occurred in the Arts District. Just a tip from a local here.

hmm, I guess I'll have to use N.H. Looks like New Hampshire though! It's not the longest name (I have Sand Rancho Santa Margarita with that title!), but it's clunky.

FYI, NoHo is North Hollywood.--ALL of North Hollywood (including my beloved Toluca Lake. NoHo Arts District is the North Hollywood Arts District. And please, Penny, as you retool, please keep in mind my points above. Don't let those who have no concept of "page views" dictate content. While it is nice to do features and puff pieces and stories based on "releases," the bread and butter of any "local" site is NEWS. Sorry to see some here afraid to get out of bed in the morning because they are afraid they may read a piece on some of the realities with which we now live every day. Yes, I enjoy reading about openings and closings, etc., but a news release from the local councilman, etc. is generally not news. Like it or not, local television "news" long ago figured out that people with little time want to know what is going on NOW. I presume you have a solid background in news because of your position. (I commiserate with your task of covering so many bases at the moment.) There is room for both hard news and feature material. (You also know, I would bet, that strong features require an often-very- expensive commitment.) I would love to be an idealist, but reality bites at every turn. Satisfy, within limits, those who crave soft stories. Give your more casual reader--whose numbers would provide far more eyeballs--a quick read of "what's happening now"--and features as time and other resources may permit. -30-
