Melya Kaplan , the founder and executive director of the Santa Monica-based Voice for the Animals , said that as of May 1, 26 kittens and two adult cats had been caught and taken out of the parking lot that once housed the One at a Time church on the corner of Seventh and San Julian streets.“ It’s a very labor intensive job to get these cats. We’ll have to keep going in many, many times to get every one,” she said, noting that there may be dozens more cats that need to be corralled. The effort began in April when church officials realized they would have to move after losing some funding.

4 Downtown News May 7, 2012 EDITORIALS Union Urban Scrawl by Doug Davis Station’s Curious Vision Quest fHT T he Metropolitan Transportation Authority has a game-changing opportunity with Union Station. The transit agency acquired the historic rail hub and 38 surrounding acres of land last year for $ 75 million. Metro staff immediately made a wise move by initiating a competition to find a firm to create a master plan for the property. This showed vision and strategy, and we were pleased to see that, rather than jumping into anything hastily, Metro was thinking decades into the future. This is, obviously, a crucial location: Union Station is the center of mass transit in Southern California. Smart, effective planning today will pay off potentially for generations. That’s the good news. The bad news, or rather, the curious news, concerns Metro’s recent experiment in having finalists for the master plan create“ vision boards” for the property in 2050. The problem is that, after the fan...

May 7, 2012 Downtown News Exploring the City Wonderland Life in an Easily Walkable Downtown Domain by AlexAndrA InfAnte Cornell S ome people like Downtown Los Angeles because it seems“ edgy” and“ mysterious.” One Downtown mom once had a different take: She told me that Downtown’s“ edgy” reality is interrupted when an elevator door opens and a neighborhood family clutching a stroller pushes their way out. Some people don’t get parents who elect to raise children in Downtown, and conversations can be emotionally charged and socially heated for those who only know the area as a business-by-day/ party-by-night locale. By no means is Downtown a utopia for our family, but there isn’t ever a time when it feels any more normal or abnormal than other areas. Our kids experience a lifestyle with a relatively low carbon footprint. We live in a Historic Core three-bedroom apartment with two baths and approximately 1,200 square feet of space. My husband works three blocks away in the Spring Arts ...

Querelle and her classmates also ride the DASH to the Little Tokyo Library’s weekly story time with Ms. Keri. My daughter and I enjoy taking the bus to protests.
