Via ##

A quick note on the changing of the transportation guard at the Los Angeles Times. Ari Bloomekatz, who has covered the beat for the past several years, is moving on to the healthcare beat. He will be replaced by Laura J. Nelson.

Previously, Nelson covered business, entertainment, national and local news. Her writing has also appeared in The Boston Globe, the St. Petersburg Times and the Los Angeles Daily News.

According to her website, she comes to Los Angeles from Kansas. She studied French and journalism at the University of Southern California. If you want to familiarize herself with her writing, you can check out a diverse set of clips by clicking here.

Laura, welcome to the beat!

Ari, we hardly got to know you! Don't be a stranger.
