It is the latest Chinatown project to get underway recently. Last April construction began on the 300,000-square-foot Chinatown Gateway, which is scheduled for completion in 2013. T he damaged City Hall lawn is set for a makeover, one that will take a little green off the property for the sake of being a different kind of green.

February 13, 2012 4 Downtown News EDITORIALS Don’t Hike Urban Scrawl by Doug Davis Campaign Contribution Limits T he Los Angeles Ethics Commission is considering vastly increasing the amount of money that individuals can contribute to candidates running for office. Our response to this proposal can be summed up in three words and one punctuation mark: Don’t do it! The move would hamper the chances of noncareer politicians getting elected in Los Angeles. We can foresee a limited increase in the contribution limit, but going to the levels proposed would be a shot against fair elections. Since 1985, candidates running for city council have been allowed to accept $ 500 per individual per election cycle. People could give $ 1,000 per cycle to those running for mayor, city controller or city attorney. The Ethics Commission wants to boost the limit for council candidates to $ 1,000 per cycle and hike citywide limits to $ 2,200. The commission tried to get the measure passed Feb. 2 but held...

In some land-use and private sector circles, there is a vastly different opinion. staffwRiteR The agency’s board of commissioners, however, often required the same kinds of community benefits from some developers not seeking public funds.

February 13, 2012 Downtown News 7 Managing a Mural sx r i*a Siqueiros’ Classic ‘ América Tropical’ to Open Soon, But Some Question Whether Group Can Oversee the Masterwork jZQ emS? by RichaRd Guzmán city editoR M exican muralist David Alfaro Siqueiros’“ América Tropical” has never lacked for controversy. Now, 80 years after it was created, and following decades of attempts to restore it, the 18-by-80-foot artwork is again at the hub of uncertainty. This time the issue isn’t whether it should be shown to the public, but rather who will be in charge of showing it. A nearly $ 10 million effort to conserve the mural and create an educational component with it is nearly complete. It has been led by the J. Paul Getty Trust, which provided $ 3.95 million and oversaw the work. The city gave $ 6 million for the effort at the El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historical Monument. Details of the nearly $ 10 million Siqueiros Mural Interpretive Center and conservation project were posted in front of the...

The last challenge we need is to be without her leadership, her wisdom and her genuine love for the people. I’m hoping against hope that she will remain my council member.” Bill Cooper , Downtown real estate agent:“ We know that the southern edge of Downtown is the 10 Freeway. This is the natural boundary. Homeowners in Downtown should be able to have fair and effective representation by one council member. It’s not about economics, it’s about our neighborhood.

Athletes 11) Candace Parker : The first pick in the 2008 WNBA draft was one of the best players in the league the moment she stepped on the Staples Center hardwood. In fact, she won the Rookie of the Year and the MVP awards that season. She’d be higher on the list if not for injuries. Her career average of 17.2 points and 9.5 rebounds are fantastic and Parker is one of only two WNBA players to dunk in a game. I love that she had nearly 1.5 assists for every turnover last season. The Sparks need her to be dominant in 2012. Continued from page 1 the Kings in points. He does all that while being smart and not taking dumb penalties ( by press time, Kopitar had been whistled for only four infractions all season). He should be higher than 14th on this list, but we all know the Kings’ offensive woes, and Anze needs to lead by example. If the team is to make a deep playoff run this...

Somewhere around the Ducks. Scary! True Greatness 6) Chris Paul : He hasn’t been in Los Angeles long, but he has been here long enough to turn around a beleaguered Clippers franchise. Paul, 26, averages 18.6 points and 9.9 assists a game over his career, and his juking and crossovers are ankle breakers for opposing defenders. Just imagine if he stays around for the rest of his career and brings Clipper fans the glory of an NBA title. I almost teared up just writing that sentence. 5) Clayton Kershaw : You know how old people sit around and say,“ There will never be another Sandy Koufax.” Well, he’s here! Kershaw is so good that I have a hard time not typing how I think he may ultimately be the best pitcher ever . Last season, the 23-year-old was 21-5 and won the National League Cy Young Award.
