Historic Core BID Board Is on the Hot Seat Even though this only amounts to about $ 34,000 a year, it’s a notable savings for a city that has endured layoffs and cutbacks in services. It also raises other questions, such as how many other seemingly small contracts have similar expenditures, including built-in annual increases? Are those really necessary, or are they ways to pad the profits of the companies getting the contracts? We’ll be watching in three years when the Maguire Gardens maintenance contract comes up again. Hopefully, others will dig into the myriad small deals the city has with its contractors. If $ 100,000 can be saved in this case, there’s no telling how much more of the public’s money can be protected. However, the questions Downtown News raised led Ninth District woman Jan Perry to ask that the deal get a closer look. This month, Perry announced that a new agreement had been reached, one that trims 10% off the contract and knocks out an automatic 2% annual increa...

by Dave Denholm T he puck has dropped and the NHL season is in its infancy. I am not going to lie and tell you I know all things hockey, but I am a fan. Dave Denholm loves walking to L. A. Live for sporting events, Garage Pizza and living Downtown. Man, that is exciting! Almost makes me want to lace up the skates again myself. Almost. “Do they have the depth to play for the Stanley Cup?” Joseph asked, and remember, this man’s an expert. “Absolutely.” pointment if they don’t play in the conference final. Their team defense is top three in the league.” OK, now I am getting pumped. But dare I ask if they can win the title? 9) Alex Ovechkin : This guy is a double stud. He plays for Washington, but because of weird NHL scheduling, you only get to see him play the Kings here once every blue moon. Well, this season the moon is blue on Jan. 9. He will be worth the price of admission and a couple of Molsons. Think of Ovechkin as the LeBron James of the NHL. Except Ovechkin didn’t stab a whol...

Mayor’s Statement on DVD Release of The Smurfs :“ I commend the entertainment industry and President Barack Obama for the release, on digital video disc, Blu-ray and Betamax, of the film The Smurfs . This important documentary shines a light on the lives and challenges faced by some of the tiniest and bluest Americans. Its message is clear: Just because an American is the size of a daffodil and has indigo-col-ored skin, does not mean that they cannot contribute to our society. This is not only a moral stance, it is simply the right thing to do. I welcome any Smurfs, and especially Smurfette, to come visit me in Los Angeles. Gargamel stay away. This film is a watershed moment in our nation’s history. From here on out, let us not call them Smurfs, but rather Miniature Blue Americans.” Mayor’s Statement on Jerry Brown’s Position on Prop 13 :“ I spoke this afternoon with our governor, a man whom everyone should remember I never officially ran against, about the need to revisit Californi...

“It’s sweet,” Kramer said.“ This poor woman had lost her daughter and the fountain lives on in her memory. We have other pieces like that too. People passed away and we have them. They’re really special.” 4.“ A woman’s daughter had passed away from cancer and she was selling her house,” Kramer recalled.“ It was totally dilapidated and the fountain was not in use. It was literally in pieces leaning up on the side of the hill. The middle dish was completely cracked. It had dirt and leaves and everything all over it. She wanted us to have it.” “So we put it in the trunks of our cars and drove Downtown with the emergency lights on,” Heller added. October 17, 2011 LIVING What’s in My Loft?

4.“ The dinner chime is really something; it has the original brochure with it. It’s by the Stickley brothers, and I think it was manufactured in the ’ 20s. I’ve never seen one before or after. I didn’t even realize it was a chime at first. I just bought it for the table, and then I looked more closely at the description after I bought it.

What I’ve been trying to do is draw each shoe, then paint it in watercolors, then put it on the box, so that I know what’s inside. The idea started when I was living in SoHo. Space was limited and I had nowhere to put shoes, so I had to put them out in my living room.

According to Chris Ocho , Ocho Mexican Grill will open on Bunker Hill in December in the former Koo Koo Roo space on Grand Avenue. The 3,500-square-foot spot that includes a patio is across the street from MOCA. It will be Ocho’s second Downtown location, following its outpost at 630 W.
