In his decision Fahey wrote that alleged insulting comments by Foster were“ directed at all of his officers, were not gender based and are not actionable in the case before the Court.” Last year, rancor within Central Area’s Community Relations Office, where Kardiban worked, prompted department brass to reassign and downgrade six LAPD staffers. After Kardiban sued, four others involved in various harassment-related disputes filed complaints ( two officers filed suit jointly). Those cases are pending. Kardiban waived her right to appeal. T he long wait for Downtown’s first Target will soon be over.

For a couple years now there have been, by all appearances, entities operating with vastly different artistic mindsets. n The local arts community was in an uproar after MOCA in late June parted ways with Chief Curator Paul Schimmel, who is among the most respected contemporary art figures in the country. While published reports indicate that things have been bubbling for a while, as Schimmel was butting heads with Jeffrey Deitch, who became director of MOCA in 2010, the average museum goer was taken aback by the departure of such a prominent figure. ift: W3* OF COOTEIH Adding to the fervor was the question of how he left.

Carter, who can walk but favors a wheelchair, was brought to tears at the prospect of uprooting her cramped sidewalk apartment. “Ma’am, we’re trying to help you here,” said Chief Patrick Butler, a Los Angeles Fire Department official overseeing the cleaning effort dubbed Operation Healthy Streets. “Give me a break,” Carter responded.“ I bleached this sidewalk before I put my stuff down on it. I can clean it myself.” It took nearly two hours for Carter to warm to the idea of moving her things, a task that ultimately required several trips and the help of a volunteer. Butler offered to connect her with a social service provider, but she showed no interest. The missions, she said, are crawling with bed bugs. B arbie ...

So far, the work has been covered by the operational budgets of the participating agencies, Vargas said. Operation Healthy Streets formally concluded on Friday, and a maintenance plan will be devised after the City Administrative Officer assesses the cost. As city officials consider the impact of the cleaning, some area stakeholders are urging City Hall to think bigger about Skid Row’s challenges. Some street dwellers have cheered the cleanings.

Business Tax An analysis of the proposal last year by USC economist Charles Swenson suggested that new business activity would eventually generate around $ 493 million annually in other fees such as sales and property taxes. If Swenson ( whose report was commissioned by the city) is right, then new revenue would more than cover the gap left by an eliminated business tax.

Austin Beutner, the former deputy mayor for economic affairs and the architect of the city’s business tax holiday on new businesses, was cool toward the 15-year proposal. While removing the business tax comes with no guarantee that new revenues will plug the resulting budget hole, 13th District City Councilman Eric Garcetti, who believes that they would, said the city needs to try something new. “Anything that takes 15 years is not a pla...

July 9, 2012 Downtown News 17 Horse Sense urg Puppet Pageantry Elevates a Plain Old Equine Tale by Jeff Favre contributing writer I t’s difficult these days for live theater to take your breath away. Part of the problem is that movies have become showcases for techno-wizardry. By comparison, what happens on the stage is limited. That said, no CGI or green screen magic can hold a candle to the moment when the spirited, spry foal Joey lifts up his front legs, neighs to the sky and descends back to the earth a fully grown, fully realized, living, breathing horse. The Ahmanson Theatre’s War Horse features spectacular puppets created by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company. Not since Julie Taymor’s visionary version of The Lion King has there been a more arresting theatrical example of animism than the wondrous War Horse , based on Michael Morpurgo’s children’s novel.
