January 9, 2012 Downtown News 13 Twice on the Ice Downtown’s Winter Skating Rinks Offer Chills and Spills T he weather outside? Not frightful at all. Not gloomy, not scary, not even partially unnerving. This weather couldn’t trigger the slightest hint of emotional pain. Anxiety, in fact, just took a quick peek out the window, drew the blinds and hid. Sadness packed up the house and decided to sell into what I think here at Occupy Pershing Square, I’m still firmly part of the 99%. That’s because a quick scan of the ice confirms my belief that 99 out of every 100 skaters desperately need lessons. No mention of Pershing Square is complete without a quick look at its history. Born in the 19th century, the“ park” underwent a major renovation nearly 20 years ago. That’s when architects decided to bring Downtown a perfectly situated oasis consisting mainly of cement and yellow walls. Oh, you wanted open space and grass? Let’s just say that if you’re planning to walk your dog, you had bette...

4 Downtown News January 16, 2012 EDITORIALS Hooray for Urban Scrawl by Doug Davis Broadway Films F or years, the concept of movies on Broadway has brought one thing to mind: filming. Although the street held a dozen active and ornate movie palaces in the first half of the last century, in recent decades the thoroughfare has been far more likely to host production crews than to screen films. That history is part of what makes a nascent film series on the street so interesting. Last fall, the operator of the Million Dollar Theatre launched a weekly Wednesday evening program. At the time, Robert Voskanian said he hoped to attract about 700 people a night to the shows, many of which were double features. He said that kind of crowd could mean a repeat. Voskanian didn’t get close to that number last fall. An average of only about 200 people a week checked out movies such as Lawrence of Arabia and a double bill of Easy Rider and Two-Lane Blacktop . Still, he has plowed ahead. This month, V...

Well, not officially. Or formally. Or whatever other squishy qualifier word fits. He didn’t get off that easily. Bryan then asked a spin-off of the first question. Yaroslavsky obliged, saying he is concerned about what has transpired in the city, and that Los Angeles needs“ strong, tough leadership right now.” Unofficially, the other aspirants to the throne better start dedicating money to the opposition research ( read: dirty tricks) arm of their campaigns, because the man who will become the frontrunner the moment he declares has plenty of race-ready salvos.

Yaroslavsky played the not-all-my-fault card, saying no other supervisors would come to a compromise. Just in case someone brings it up, he also picked up the lion mom theme, noting that his district was threatened by one of Molina’s proposals. Yaroslavsky As a candidate, he’d have plenty of weak spots. Despite his touts of the county’s fiscal health, he’d be torpedoed for some of the supervisors’ failings, such as the sorry state of the Probation Department. Then there’s the issue of Sheriff’s Department deputies allegedly beating the heck out of inmates, and Sheriff Lee Baca’s organization happens to be county territory. As a member of the Coliseum Commission, Yaroslavsky will get grilled like a piece of mahi mahi for the financial scandal that has erupted in Exposition Park, something he acknowledged at the Downtown luncheon has been ongoing for several years.
