OM TO 17 Trouble in Central Division The Downtown News report revealed that three experienced officers have sued the department. They laid out a series of transgressions and alleged that the behavior was tolerated by command staff in Central Division. The latter claim, if it proves true, is especially troubling — people in this day and age demand that those in charge be responsible and don’t al- Whenever lawsuits are filed, people and organizations tend to clam up. They worry that anything said to the public, and especially the media, can come back to haunt them. We understand the viewpoint in an overly litigious society, but in this instance, transparency and a thorough investigation of what happened and why are of the utmost importance. The results of the investigation need to be made available to the public. The stakeholders of Downtown and the citizens of the city need to know that the department still merits the trust that has been building for approximately a decade. The charg...

C ouncilman Mitch Englander stated that“ We’re in customer service” (“ A ‘ Change of Culture’ at City Hall,” Sept. 19, by Jon Regardie), a field he ascribed to everything from police to bulky-item pickup. He should start at City Hall. People make the trip Downtown to voice their opinions and those around the horseshoe rarely pay attention. Rarely are all the council members seated in their thrones except when a celebrity shows up. Englander should know this by now. He was the chief of staff to Greig Smith.“ Imagine hiring J. D. Power to rate customer service in L. A.,” he said. That’s all we need — another agency on the city payroll. It just takes common sense. Treat people the way you want to be treated. car, etc. I’m shocked by all of this. I always thought there was some type of brotherhood that officers were sworn to stay loyal to at all times. This article implies that it’s now become an“ everyone for themselves” mentality where lawsuits abound. I wonder what community members ...

Things were great for about four or five floors. I’ll Show You First Aid I have a checkered history with the Boy Scouts. Way back in the day, my mom decided that I needed some structure in my life. I was about 10 years old and not exactly a wellbehaved child. She thought some scouting would help. Not long after joining, there was a camping trip. During the Ultimately, 71 people participated, raising $ 135,000 for the cause. I tried the challenge the day before, as did a few other members of the media. I think it’s safe to say that everyone fared better than I did. On Oct. 7, the local chapter of the Boy Scouts staged its second annual“ Over the Edge” event.

October 24, 2011 Downtown News 7 photo by Gary Leonard It turned out that fear was a factor for someone with a phobia of heights. “The hardest part is going off the edge,” an instructor told My middle name is Ernesto, not Wuss. Game on! [ Ed. note: I thought he was joking. Oops.] In reality, the rappel is completely safe. The organizers use a snug-fitting harness and check it at least three times. Two ropes hold you at all times — one goes through a mechanism that, with a squeeze handle, allows you to control the speed of your descent. The other is a safety line that stops you if you start going down too fast. Trained staff are at the top and the bottom of the building. “What if I change my mind?” I asked. “You will be subject to endless teasing and lots of ‘ Awwwwww, poooor wichard doesn’t want to go down the big scawy building,” he wrote back.“ But we understand if you’re not brave. Seriously, if ‘ Wuss’ is your middle name, you don’t have to do it.’ That confidence s...

T he Spring Street Park is one of the most eagerly awaited projects in Downtown Los Angeles. Work on the nearly one-acre amenity began Oct. 7. It is scheduled to open in April 2013 ( pushed back from next fall). 5) Post-Construction : Once construction finishes, the Department of Public Works will conduct inspections. If everything is up Construction crews will also build a fence, install approximately 20 light fixtures and plant 20 to 30 trees. The final step will be the lawn. It will be brought in rolls similar to new carpeting. “The water feature is the most expensive element. It’s not something we build for every park,” Tseng said. and tanks will be kept. It will be 10 feet underground and accessible to crews by a ladder. The total construction will run about $ 1.2 million. The fountain alone costs about $ 200,000. “It’s got a different level of complexity than building a structure,” Tseng said.“ The most challenging thing, however, is at the beginning, when you have to build pu...

One of the leaders in the movement is L. A. nightlife veteran Dana Hollister. The creator of numerous popular destinations, including Silver Lake’s Cliff’s Edge and 4100 Bar, freely admits that the physicality comes first. Drinks, she says, are the“ cherry on top” of the design. are known as much or more for drinks than décor — Caña is all about rum and Seven Grand is known for whiskey. Other newcomers include the Historic Core’s The Falls and Spring Street Bar. Although both are distinct and draw crowds, they offer more of an urban sophisticated feel, rather than, say, a visit to an old gypsy’s house, or a trip to late 1800s Britain to have a drink with Jack the Ripper. Shades of Style Salvage Bar opened last month on the ground floor of Seventh Street’s Roosevelt Residences. The 2,200-square-foot spot from former club promoter Solomon Mansoor also looks to the past, but in a different way than Hollister’s creations: Here, the focus is on the bones of the actual building. The piece...

“But I’ll be honest, my favorite aspect is still the design, especially the back lounge,” he said. Design is also important for Eduardo Castillo and Alejandro Meza, who opened the Pattern Bar on Ninth Street in July. Subtler in theme than Hollister or Mansoor’s spots, the bar is airy and bright, with large windows and garagesize glass doors that are opened in the afternoon. Antique sewing machines line the windows. The stools are made from actual Singer sewing machine stools. Columns have white tiles and long mirrors over a dark base. The white tile checkered floor adds to the openness 1913 spot. “I wanted it to look like it has always been here, like it was here since 1913,” said Castillo. Fiberglass sound panels on the ceiling improve acoustics by minimizing echoes. What Castillo calls“ non-pop,” soothing music dominates during the day, while more energetic jazz and electronica is played after sundown. The fashion theme continues to the cocktails, with offerings including The Chan...
