CRA Extends Cleantech Loan, Still No Deal prepares to undertake some long-needed earthquake repairs. The National Trust for Historic Preservation recently awarded the organization $ 7,500 to repair a wall at the Far East Building , which was damaged in the 1994 Northridge earthquake. The structure at 347 E. First St. is actually made up of three buildings, including a new addition added after the earthquake. The brick walls on the two older buildings were not repaired in 2003, when the LTSC restored the complex after it had been closed for about 10 years. The proerty holds a cafe, 16 affordable housing units and the LTSC’s computer learning center.

SO0T SO? Jill vehicles nn n p- fift f^ 1 STREET SI&K ClHALLtrA&ES.. The Downtown comedy clubs are not as polished as the veterans, and for many patrons, that’s a good thing. Often there’s a gritty or makeshift quality, the producers staging weekly or monthly events inside other venues because they don’t have the audience, money or connections to open a standalone club. While that means a certain level of instability — comedy nights in Downtown come, go and sometimes change location — it also injects an energy and a freedom into the performances. Since producers don’t have to pay exorbitant rents, they don’t have to depend on mainstream touring and“ Tonight Show” comedians to headline and bring in huge crowds. The result is a freedom in the sets and the ability to nurture local talent and let newbies find an audience. A lot of credit goes to Kevin Garnier and Garrett Morris, who founded the Downtown Comedy Club in 2007. They have stuck with their dream, even a...

CCEA knows well that this is a complex issue. On the subject of unattended personal property — as with many other issues — we call for equity and balance. Let us not forget, however, that the sidewalk is the public’s right of way and that it should not be traded in exchange for a conscience. We must help the thousands of homeless people throughout Los Angeles who need a home, not merely give them a few inches of pavement and call it a day. from outside the area are a profitable business. With a target-rich population lying on or wandering aimlessly through the streets, often self-medicating themselves into oblivion, the drug pushers significantly outnumber police and social service outreach workers. And now these streets are covered with refuse and debris that often hide weapons or drugs, but mostly pose a public health hazard, all in the name of compassion. 2006, CCEA’s cost to expand the center has been balanced with financial assistance from the Los Angeles Homeless Services Auth...
