August 13, 2012 Downtown News 5 They’re in the Money Fascinating Financial Findings From Some Expensive City Elections by Jon RegaRdie Don’t Count Out Jan : Some will tsk tsk Councilwoman Jan Perry for having only $ 1.16 million to date. That would be foolish, because the mayor is the one who gets the most votes, not the person who piles up the most pennies. Greuel and Garcetti will have more money to spend on mailers, TV ads and donkeys carrying banners ( one can dream), but Perry is likely to have enough cash to wage an effective campaign. Remember, the goal in March is not to get a majority of the votes but to cobble together enough to make the May runoff. Perry’s target audience in the primary is different than that of Garcetti and Greuel, who are pursuing many of the same constituents. She’s got enough money to be a factor. executive editoR F or those who follow city elections, the most interesting thing outside of actual vote counting is money raising. The cash game is even mo...

Frozen Delight : Downtown is curiously lacking in ice cream shops. That said, there is an abundance of frozen yogurt outlets. One of the most popular is Yogurtland in Little Tokyo. It’s a do-it-yourself spot where you grab a container, pull your chosen flavor lever and then add toppings. Price is by weight. Go Slushie : It’s not a good idea to fight heat with alcohol. Then again, it’s not a terrible idea to add a stiff drink to your otherwise responsible hydration schedule every so often. One fine choice for those pursuing this route is the mescal slushie at Umamicatessen on Broadway. It’s not on the menu, so don’t bother looking for it. Instead, ask the bartender. It tastes like a spiked lemonade slushie. Another boozy way to beat the heat comes at Silo Vodka Bar . The Seventh Street joint offers beverage tastings in a 28-degree walk-in freezer. E...

There are far fewer families who, over the course of several generations, have continued to help shape the look and character of the community.

4 Downtown News August 20, 2012 EDITORIALS Hold Off on Urban Scrawl by Doug Davis A Scalper AW, Injunction TO COFfe C ity Attorney Carmen Trutanich took a bold step in April 2010 when he launched an effort to get an injunction that would prevent known drug dealers from entering a large portion of Downtown Los Angeles. While it is doubtful that the flow of narcotics in Skid Row has been stanched by the creation of the Central City Recovery Zone — although dozens of people were named in the injunction, plenty of others have come into the community to fill the void — it was an important move to protect addicts and the mentally ill from people who would prey upon them. y So it should come as no surprise that Trutanich’s office is using the same tactic on another part of the populace that some would label a scourge: the ticket scalpers who congregate outside area venues, selling vastly inflated and sometimes counterfeit ducats. It’s an inventive approach to an old problem, and we appreci...
