March 12, 2012 Downtown News 9 elected president of the U. S. Conference of Mayors, and although that may be no great shakes ( the previous president was Elizabeth Kautz, the mayor of, uh, Burnsville, Minn.), he’s used it well. He seems always to be flying to D. C. and gets himself on national broadcast and cable news shows. He continues to issue press releases about, well, everything. I doubt the New York Times was waiting for his thoughts on the death of Whitney Houston before printing its obituary, but Villaraigosa wasn’t leaving that to chance. He offered a statement and we now know the mayor believed that,“ Her music inspired millions and the power of her voice was hard to match in its depth and crystalline beauty.” pect the race to come down to a few battleground states, and in some of these, such as Florida and Nevada, the Latino vote could prove crucial. Villaraigosa So, one school of thought is that Villaraigosa is less an important leader and more a tool to be utilized. If...

Restaurants Continued from page 1 in the past two years to participate in a new city initiative to quicken the permitting process for bars and restaurants. The program hinges on one key change — each project is assigned a case manager who stays involved at every step and helps facilitate meetings and inspections with officials who have to sign off on the work. When the program was announced, officials said it routinely took restaurateurs 12 to 18 months to open a business ( many people in the industry have cited longer time frames). The primary goal of Restaurant and Hospitality Express was to cut that in half, to six to nine months. Now, more than two years after the experiment started, res...

Some artists have an accessible vision — their work invites the audience in. Conversely, others investigate such outré provinces or work so obtusely that viewers have to work for any degree of familiarity and comprehension. m k - Mike Kelley’s art was a chip on his shoulder. He dared you to look and he dared you to like it. One of the most influential Los Angeles artists of the past 30 years, Kelley was 57 when he took his own life at his South Pasadena home on Jan. 31. The Museum of Contemporary Art, which owns 34 Kelley holdings, has assembled the modest A Tribute to Mike Kelley from that trove at its Grand Avenue mother ship. That amounts to a sliver of the prolific Kelley’s output. Twentythree pieces from the permanent MOCA collection are on view through April 2. Kelley had an obses...

That’s a good thing. Many people have become accustomed to standards regarding disclosure, donation limits, matching funds and more. It’s worth studying why things are the way they are and investigating what should change. The biggest step so far came this month, when the panel took up, among other things, individual donation limits. The commission made some smart moves and one extremely poor one. The commission should immediately look at reversing a decision that impacts campaigns already underway. The most attention-grabbing matter concerned increasing the amount that individuals can contribute. For decades the maximum someone could give was $ 500 for a City Council race and $ 1,000 for a candidate for mayor, city controller and city attorney. The ...
