For more information and to download the tours visit On Thursday, Sept. 15, Beck’s responsibility to honor those who suffer serious injuries or die while on duty was heightened. At a solemn ceremony at the JW Marriott in front of about 900 people, he presented 82 LAPD Purple Hearts, a newly initiated department honor. The medals for the 40 officers killed on duty since 1921 were accepted mostly by their sons, daughters, widows and parents. Approximately 40 officers who had been seriously injured were on hand to receive the award themselves. During his address, Beck admitted that as a young cop, he couldn’t relate to a civilian and the trauma they undergo when losing a police department relative. Now, with two children of his own on the force, he said he could fully appreciate what they endure. “I don’t think I understood what it is to be an immediate family member of a police officer until my kids joined the department,” Beck said.“ When your loved one walks out that door, there is ...

ries and more. Jammed Culturally These developments hint at the future of Chinatown. Another hint came in the recent Chinatown Summer Nights celebrations. The two Saturday evening events orchestrated by the Chinatown Business Improvement District had the area filled with families and others ready to hit food trucks, watch martial arts and cooking demonstrations and dance under the stars. The activity proved that, given the right attractions, people will come to the neighborhood. This is something worth remembering. Chinatown has attractions that are unrivalled in the region. Still, the opportunities and the community must be maximized. Blossom Plaza and other projects are ways to do just that, and to ensure that Chinatown is a destination for decades to come. District City Councilman Ed Reyes then did a few key things. The city acquired the property on Broadway between College and Spring streets and conducted a public bidding process for a developer.

Regarding the article“ Weekend Farmers Market Coming E xcellent reporting!

The city Bureau of Engineering is still awaiting state approval of the environmental impact report for a replacement of the ailing, 78-year-old Sixth Street Viaduct. The bridge spans the Los Angeles River between Downtown and Boyle Heights. The bureau expects state attorneys who are reviewing the EIR to finish by the end of the month, said Rick Coca, a spokesman for 14th District City Councilman José Huizar. A chemical reaction is breaking down the bridge, though officials have said there is no imminent danger of collapse. Since 2007, bureau staff have been looking at repairing, or more likely replacing the structure. Current projections are that a new bridge won’t come until 2017 at the earliest. The project cost is estimated at $ 359 million. The city has identified a new cable-supported structure as the preferred design.
