They’re like a carpenter’s boots — sturdy, dependable, but not eye-catching. At 7th Exotic Wheels, a tire specialist in Skid Row, they treat wheels like designer shoes for the modern executive. The custom wheel emporium opened at Seventh Street and Central Avenue last November to cater to the luxury car driver not satisfied with the standard look of factory rims, or those who simply want standout wheels for a standard ride. The off the beaten track location makes a large warehouse affordable — the store fills 7,000 square feet of space. Custom Cut : Car manufacturers do not design their accessories and parts with universal metrics. In other words, rims are not one-size-fits-all-cars. That’s why many of the high-end pieces at 7th Exotic Wheels come without holes cut for the ...

Murrow “Were it left to me to decide if we should have a government without newspapers, or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter.” — Thomas Jefferson Freedom of the Press does not mean the press is free. And a free newspaper only appears to be free.

September 3, 2012 4 Downtown News EDITORIALS Urban Scrawl by Doug Davis Frankly Different Oft I t’s amazing what is happening these days with the Los Angeles Dodgers. The shock is partly the result of the new owners spending money so freely, and partly because this is worlds removed from the austerity measures that fans had been conditioned to under the McCourt regime. Like everyone else who has cheered for the Blue Crew on a warm evening in Chavez Ravine, we’re thrilled with the changes. After years in the financial desert, it is refreshing to have an ownership group treating the Dodgers like the primary baseball franchise in the second largest market in the United States. For too long spending here had been on par with lower-tier cities. At this point it’s hard for Guggenheim Baseball Management to look anything but shiny blue. The financial heft ushered in by new controlling partner Mark Walter is unprecedented — the trade for Red Sox star Adrian Gonzalez and three other players ...

Hellen owns those buildings, which operate as swap meets. The theaters back up against a narrow alley. The new project would effectively seal off the rear of the venues, preventing equipment loading, thereby limiting the structures’ future viability for stage shows, Huizar has said.
