Odds and Ends 186

It still seem a little bit remarkable that it took over 5 years for someone to touch a button right next to another button and reach me instead of the Ponte Vista at San Pedro offices.

I have received so many fewer calls during the years compared to the Ponte Vista site.

I have no idea if or how many people trying to reach Terri or me has instead, had their calls picked up by someone at the trailers just east of Western Avenue.
If you saw an advertisement in a newspaper or read anything supporting Measure P, The Marymount Plan that just might make it appear that Rancho Palos Verdes City Councilman Anthony Misetich supports Measure P, The Marymount Plan, he DOES NOT!

Councilman Misetich was one of the five members of the five-member City Council to approve The Marymount College Facilities Expansion Project and to the best of my knowledge and after talking to him on many occasions and hearing his many comments during City Council meetings, Councilman Misetich opposes on-campus student housing at Marymount College and that is really one of the only reasons Measure P, and The Marymount Plan was created in the first place.
Today marks the end of the first week of classes at LAUSD schools, including the ones near Western Avenue.

If you travel along Western Avenue, you must have noticed that traffic got worse and delays got longer.

It is time for those of us who can use alternate routes to avoid adding to the woes of those who must utilize Western Avenue, to do so.

Any number of fewer cars and drivers on Western, especially from about noon to about 7:00 PM each weekday, helps. Thank you.

Beutner's Folly: The CRA's Unlimited Authority to Squander Tax Money Anywhere in LA on Anything

By Ron Kaye on September 23, 2010

A MUST READ AND TAKE ACTION: Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, State Capitol Building, Sacramento CA 95814 Phone: 916-445-2841 Fax: 916-558-3160

Please Arnold, VETO Felipe Fuentes' audacious bill AB 2531.

Don't join the conspiracy to destroy LA in order to save it.

Don't allow the scandal-plagued Community Redevelopment Agency to take tax money for schools, libraries, parks and other basic services and give it to just about anyone, for any purpose, projects or programs, anywhere in the city, even outside CRA project areas.

Don't rob four million people to enrich the few.

Don't destroy the intent of redevelopment law and put billions of dollars in public money into the hands of one man -- First Deputy Mayor and Interim DWP General Manager Austin Beutner -- without adequate safeguards to protect the public interest.
