16 Downtown News January 16, 2012 HEALTH HEALTH The Right or Wrong Tone Experts Question Whether You Can Get Fit Just by Wearing Special Shoes by Chandra Orr After all, it’s a new way of walking. Cedric Bryant, Ph. D., chief science officer for the council. “Our findings demonstrate that toning shoes are not the magic solution consumers were hoping they would be and simply do not offer any benefits that people cannot reap through walking, running or exercising in traditional athletic shoes.” G et a better body just by wearing the right shoes? It sounds too good to be true — and it might be. With promises of a tighter backside, toned thighs and lean leg muscles, companies such as Reebok, Skechers and MBT are doing big business with sneakers designed to give people workouts outside of the gym. However, some experts are skeptical. “Walking is one of your most complicated biomechanical achievements. There are 26 bones and 30 muscles that operate each foot,” says Dr. Daniel Howell, assoc...

18 Downtown News January 16, 2012 Tracking the Old Trains Remembering the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway’s Role in Downtown by GreG Fischer W hen it opened in the spring of 1939, Los Angeles Union Passenger Terminal was the state of the art in passenger train service. The soaring building on Alameda Street was the last of the great railroad stations built in the United States as air transportation was displacing rail as the preferred method of travel. Where did people go to catch a train before 1939? Few thought about rail travel prior to Union Station. In the earlier period, going back to the 1860s, each of the rail lines provided their own terminals and services. The Los Angeles and San Pedro Railroad, the first in the county of Los Angeles, ran on Alameda Street to a depot where the freeway crosses under the road. Southern Pacific Railroad had a series of stations, mostly using Alameda Street for arrivals and departures. The Los Angeles and Independence Railroad terminated...

Greg Martin, vice president of Downtown Management, which owns the Jewelry Trades Building where Rite Aid is housed, said drug dealers have plagued Fifth and Broadway since long before the pharmacy opened in 2007. The activity was curbed somewhat, Martin said, when a 24-hour security guard was hired last year to staff the Jewelry Trades Building lobby. That’s because outside the store, drug dealers have made the intersection a hotspot for illegal painkiller sales. The trade occurs despite the fact that there are nearly full housing complexes on three corners, and a ...
