I n April the Los Angeles Police Depart­ment transferred approximately 50 offi­cers to Central Division. Although police are now making about 100 more arrests per week, crime in the area is rising. staff writer The change has allowed the department to make additional drug related arrests, about 100 more per week; most of these are serious fel­ony offenses involving sales, said Lt. Shannon Paulsen, who oversees the Safer Cities unit. “These are people who are committing crimes repeatedly,” Frank said.“ If these are your profile suspects, the fact that we’re get­ting them off the streets is huge.” Critics of the department’s concentra­tion of resources in Skid Row, including the homeless advocacy group ...

The new owner wanted Croick to invest in renovations and security and change operating hours. Instead, he opted to sell to Shamlian and Leko, who have a history with Shomof. T he City Council is slated to vote Wednesday to finalize the new council boundaries crafted in the recent redistricting process. The maps received preliminary approval on June 13, despite protests from City Council members Jan Perry and Bernard Parks . In a letter to the council, Perry argued that last minute changes had been implemented without full public review.

4 Downtown News June 18, 2012 EDITORIALS Once Again, Urban Scrawl by Doug Davis Elections Matter U nless your name is Carmen Trutanich, there is something to cheer about this month’s elections. And no, the thing worth celebrating is not that Nuch finished third in the June 5 balloting, putting him out of the runoff and shockingly dashing his hopes of succeeding Steve Cooley as district attorney. Instead, the good news is what the results of the race said about politics. The completely unexpected finish of chief deputy D. A. Jackie Lacey in the top spot and prosecutor Alan Jackson in the runner-up position said that elections matter . It said that all the so-called experts may not know so much after all, and that the political machine, as it were, sometimes breaks down in unprecedented ways. \ j jj 1 ,r The results of the district attorney’s race said that people matter more than fundraising.

He terms his fourth base“ concerned voters,” people who worry that Los Angeles will soon tumble into bankruptcy and want fresh ideas. executive editoR I n the 1991 film King Ralph , a few dozen members of the British royal family come together for a group photo and, oopsy daisy, are all electrocuted in a freak mishap. The government finds that the next person in line for the throne is, somehow, an American. Thus Ralph Jones, a slovenly Las Vegas lounge singer, is crowned. It was not a documentary. Is this a case of fuzzy math? Maybe. In the last election without an incumbent, in 2001, about 500,000 people cast ballots for mayor. Turnout has plummeted since, with 412,000 individuals doing their civic duty in the 2005 primary and only 274,000 inkavoting the mayor’s race in 2009. Reaching James’ tar...

Water covers the pool, then disappears via a discreet crack into an underground pumping system that recirculates it back into the fountain.

Kevin James Continued from page 5 ( through Dec. 31) Greuel had raised $ 1.1 million, Garcetti had pulled in $ 1.06 million and Perry had claimed $ 827,000. Those figures are certainly much higher now. James tries to shrug off the financial comparisons. He also brushes aside suggestions that, if he’s serious about running Los Angeles, then he should first get some political experience by going for a City Council or other elected seat. He likes the idea about as much as Socrates liked Hemlock. Obnoxious Fan James grew up in Oklahoma and Texas.

He questioned whether shuttering the shop would have any impact on the area homeless population. There are other nearby liquor stores, including at least one — BJ Market at 711 N. Broadway — that sells single servings. staff writer I n 1995, a city Zoning Administrator labeled a Chinatown liquor store a public nuisance and ordered the shop to clean up its act. Seventeen years later, community groups who say Macy Liquor is still a blight are pleading with the city to shut it down. “It’s unfair to try to place all the blame on the smallest store, just because they’re up for permit review,” Gee said. Still, Gee said that he supports the proposal to prohibit the sale of single cans, even though the ban would likely hurt his tenant’s business. A zoning official is now considering a revocation of the store’s o...
