A High Price, and High Value, for Maguire Gardens As we say, it is reasonable, even prudent, to examine the costs closely. However, we caution against over-reaction. We urge the Library Department and the city to keep the quality of park maintenance high for the 7,000 people a day who come through there and the dozens of events held there each year, requirements that none of the other parks experience. We also urge the decision makers to remember that it is worth at least a bit of a premium to maintain a park that could have been a parking lot. We got what we wished for; now it needs to be maintained. Also, let’s hope that Los Angeles follows San Jose’s lead. The City Council agreed with Perry and rejected a new contract with MPG. The council then instructed the Library Department to come up with a more detailed description of the costs. The comparison to the 10.5-acre Vista Hermosa Natural Park, which costs $ 199,000 a year to maintain, might be considered apt because of the pletho...

G ee, what do you know? Who, again, wasn’t mentioned? Yep, that would be the St. Louis Rams. Go ahead and keep wishing teams away and there will be no football at all in L. A. Regarding the article“ Leiweke Hopes to Break Ground on Stadium by June,” published online Aug. 9, by Jon Regardie — bigphatcatlover, Aug. 4, 6: 21 p. m. — Tim Chase, Aug. 10, 9: 31 a. m. — Gene Bivens, Aug. 5, 12: 25 p. m. I can remember when Pershing Square was grassy and had benches and trees. It’s not in such great condition now. What makes anyone think this new park will be any bet-ter-kept or safer? D ave, you live Downtown, so you know the value of having a walkable community where you can live and work in the same place. That’s why I believe it makes a lot more sense to build a residential community on that site instead of an AEG football stadium. It would not be good to draw all that traffic from outside the city. Turn L. A. into a walkable city and leave the NFL stadium for Industry where it’s just u...

The Dodgers recently traded away one of their top prospects, Trayvon Robinson, for three average prospects. We call that Dodger Math. Where Are You Going? : Downtown has Farmers Field, Eli Broad’s art museum and myriad other projects to look forward to. Advantage : Downtown Dodger fans can only pray the team has new leadership by then. McCourt makes Donald Sterling look like“ Owner of the Year” material. Who’s in Power? : Downtown, and the rest of Los Angeles, will have a new mayor in 2013. That will make it easier to get good tickets to sporting events and concerts around town. Figueroa following a Lakers game or the once-a-week parade on Broadway can mess up traffic Downtown, no doubt. But, as we all know, the beauty of living here is we walk Traffic : The Dodgers have improved their parking situation by leaps and bounds recently ( the one thing Frank McCourt got right). Yet, it’s still brutal trying to get back to Sunset after a game, especially since it’s usually after the boys ...

He is known as a pioneer in the sport for the switch stance, a move in which a skater rides opposite to his or her natural side. It’s akin to learning how to be ambidextrous. Pizzanista isn’t his first entrepreneurial venture. Agah has had his own Vans produced shoe; started energy drink business The Skaterage Beverage Company; and helped create a quarterly magazine called Skatebook . Agah, who sports a shaved head and thick, tattooed arms, and favors a casual jeans and T-shirt attire, is one of two children of Iranian and Azerbaijani parents. Born in 1972, he began skating at the age of 5 after his father bought him a skateboard.

A: If you schedule your party over a long period of time — more than four hours — I would definitely recommend some sort of entertainment. Also, night affairs do well with entertainment. should be sure to do when organizing an event? A: Party planners should think about what they want their guests to be talking about on their drive home from the event — from the great food, fun atmosphere and activities — and work backwards to create a memorable experience. It’s always important to be clear on the budget and work creatively with the event manager throughout the planning process. A: Always keep aware of your magic number, the per-person budget you want to stay at.
