“Were like sardines in a can.”

Our favorite traffic cop Councilman Dennis Zine delivered a gem of a quote to close out this happy Friday...

“Were like sardines in a can.”

Who knew. I always wondered what that stench on the bus was. Now I know.

Mayor Sam, the following small piece I will gutly paste and cut is small, sorry if I annoy anyone by doing this. But, the news headline made me want to puke in disgust to see this type of situation happening in our country. I am a Republican, and to bust the stereotype we might have of having a brutal side, I can tell you this almost had me puking with anger. How can such a thing like this happen to children in the U.S., we are not a third world country, this is not civil behavior by our immigration authorities.

"30 Kids Left Behind After Immigration Raid"
By MELISSA NELSON, Associated Press Writer
2 hours, 56 minutes ago

ARKADELPHIA, Ark. - About 30 children, some as young as 3 months old, were left without their parents after immigration agents raided a poultry plant and took the parents away to face possible deportation.


While some of the arrested workers were able to call and arrange care for their children, others were not and a local church had to help make arrangements.

The mayor said what happened to the children was a shame.

This song is dedicated to all the kids the were shortchanged from proper education at LAUSD under Jose Huizar's mismanagement and for having them endure the political bullshit of contamidated sites, ripped off land deals, and incompetent administration.

We benefit from pulling together and that will make us greater as city, country, and nation internationally. Put any negativity behind and allow for all of us to communicate effectively and help our cities be one in power and voice.

(Anonymous Pork Bulletin)

Washington, D.C. - The following is a statement by Erich W. Zimmermann, a Senior Policy Analyst for Taxpayers for Common Sense, on the conspicuous absence of a conference agreement on the transportation bill:

In a rush to get out of town, House lawmakers are still saying they will vote tonight on final passage of a transportation bill. Rumor has it that the legislation has been stuffed to the brim with at least $20 billion in political projects, a new earmarking record.

In fact, the transportation bill has become the ghost of Capitol Hill: Nobody has seen it, but we know that it's scary and has been haunting the halls of Congress for a long time.

Everybody is looking high and low for this bill, making it the "Where's Waldo" of Capitol Hill. We know that every lawmaker squeals at the idea of more road pork, but not letting people read the bill before a vote is outrageous, unfair and anti-democratic. Lawmakers will have to be speed-readers to get through this bill before it is time to vote. Members will be lucky if they have even a few hours review the final conference report, which rings in at a beefy $286.5 billion. It is likely that the public won't see the bill at all before Congress actually votes.

Maybe Congress has grown a little sheepish by its fiscally irresponsible ways, and hiding the bill from public scrutiny makes the embarrassment of riches a little less embarrassing. More likely, however, it is merely a sign that Congress needs to make sure every last dollar is assigned to member projects before the bill is released. Either way, it's a poor way to legislate and undermines the democratic process. We'd like Congress to hold off on voting and take a few hours to read the bill while they are on their summer vacation.

State Route 710 Freeway Extension
Greater Los Angeles, California
Cost to Federal Taxpayers: $1.12 billion

The State Route 710 (SR 710) extension was first discussed in 1949 as one in a series of freeways serving Los Angeles County, California. As proposed, SR 710 would connect the existing I-710, which currently ends just outside of Los Angeles, with I-210 in Pasadena. The project's 1994 cost estimate, the most recent available, was $1.4 billion for this 4.5-mile road, or $311 million per mile. This number is certainly much higher today, but even using this outdated estimate, SR 710 would cost more per mile than most urban freeways and more than the Los Angeles subway system.
Taxpayer Concerns
Building the proposed SR 710 would cost $1.4 billion or more. The cities of El Sereno, South Pasadena, and Pasadena would lose property tax revenue because Caltrans would destroy 1,000 homes and businesses, reducing annual revenue for the area's school districts by $1.6 million. California currently owns only half of the properties it would need to build the highway, and would have to spend $225 million to purchase additional properties. If the project is cancelled, the state could sell the 500 properties it has acquired and reap $200 million or more and apply these funds to the region's more pressing transportation needs.

Recent transit improvements have made the highway unnecessary. In 2003, Caltrans opened an $860 million light rail line that serves the corridor's commuter needs, and SR 710 would run parallel to the $2.2 billion Alameda Corridor, which serves freight movement from the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach.

A non-highway alternative supported by national, state, and local groups would cost at least $1.2 billion less than SR 710 (at a cost of $135 million) and could be implemented within five years. This alternative integrates signal coordination, parking management, intersection upgrades, roadway efficiency improvements, improvements to existing highways, and better public transit coordination.

Congress Set to Send Highway Bill to Bush


The watchdog group Taxpayers for Common Sense, which keeps track of such projects in the bill, which runs more than 1,000 pages, said it has found 6,361 highway, bus and rail projects worth about $23 billion.

These projects range from a $200 million bridge near Anchorage renamed "Don Young's Way" after House Transportation Committee Chairman Don Young, R-Alaska, to $45,000 for improved circuitry at a rail crossing in Knoxville, Tenn.

The bill, he said, is "terrifying in its fiscal consequences and disappointing for the lack of fiscal discipline." Joining McCain in voting against the bill were Sens. John Cornyn, R-Texas, Judd Gregg, R-New Hampshire, and Jon Kyl, R-Arizona.

Airport panel pick's conflict of interest questioned

By Rick Orlov, Staff Writer

With hearings scheduled soon on Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's nominees to the Airport Commission, a City Council member is questioning whether one appointee might have a conflict of interest.
Valeria Velasco is president of the Alliance for a Regional Solution to Airport Congestion, which has filed suit challenging the $11 billion modernization plan for Los Angeles International Airport.

Councilman Tony Cardenas has asked the City Attorney's Office for a legal opinion on any potential conflict of interest. He also wants an opinion on whether Velasco's position on the commission could result in the entire panel being recused from decisions regarding the master plan or settlement of the lawsuit.

Velasco, who is also a practicing attorney, said she would step down from her ARSAC position, if requested, and would recuse herself from any decisions regarding the lawsuit.

Aides to Villaraigosa said he welcomes the review and is confident that Velasco will take steps to avoid any conflicts of interest.

The Rift
Evidence of a divide between blacks and Hispanics mounting
By Susy Buchanan

One after another, the reports have rolled in. From Florida to California, Nevada to New Jersey, even as far away as the state of Washington, the news is getting harder to ignore: There's trouble brewing between blacks and browns.
At Hug High School in Reno, Nev., an emergency task force began work last October after a series of fights between black and Hispanic students that interim Schools Superintendent Paul Dugan said reflected "definite racial tensions." In Monroe, Wash., similar tensions shot up after a Mexican flag was torn down and thrown into a bathroom and several off-campus fights broke out. In Chicago, seven students were arrested after an interracial brawl in January left teachers and security guards injured and parents complaining of mounting racial strife.

But it was in schools in California, where so many of the nation's trends first take shape, that this disturbing conflict was most obvious.

Campaign gifts keep giving back
By Thomas D. Elias, Guest columnist
"Imagine what things might be like if the strict conflict-of-interest laws passed by initiative in a few cities just over three years ago were operating on the state level...The laws also prohibit officials like city councilmen and planning commissioners from going to work for companies whose contracts they've approved for at least five years after voting on those pacts...And no state legislators or commissioners acting on anything affecting them could accept a job or a lobbying contract with any of those companies for years after leaving office...It's all part of a de facto revolving-door arrangement between government and some private businesses. It works for Democrats, too. The chief transition aide for new Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, for instance, served as a deputy mayor under former Mayor Richard Riordan. In between, while James Hahn was mayor for four years, she worked for developer and big political donor Eli Broad, whose initial is the B in the KB Homes firm...Ideally, none of this should be possible. It leads to an old-boy, old-girl network that sees to it certain big commercial and labor interests always get their way."

DWP's green scheme

Customers who make power will pay more

By Lisa M. Sodders, Staff Writer

Despite mandates to boost renewable power sources, the Los Angeles DWP gives the Los Angeles Unified School District a discounted rate to delay its alternative-energy program and plans to charge other large customers more for generating their own electricity, the Daily News has learned.
Beginning in January, the Department of Water and Power will charge a new fee to the Los Angeles Community College District and nearly a dozen other unidentified customers that generate a portion of their own electricity, officials said.

"The fact of the matter is, they do not want you to self-generate," said Tony Fairclough, an engineering management consultant for the college district. "They want to appear to be 'green,' but they want those dollars."

East Side Story

Rail line spurring boom in development activity

Los Angeles Business Journal Staff

Investing: The success of transit projects elsewhere has given developers confidence to proceed.
Investors and developers are eyeing sites and quietly buying up properties around the $900 million Eastside rail line now under construction through Boyle Heights and East Los Angeles.

Developer interest in the rail line is coinciding with a surge of publicly sponsored projects in the area and could lead to a rebirth that’s similar to what happened in Hollywood after the subway was completed there.

“For years, it was very hard to get developers interested in this area. But now, we’re running into more and more developers, buying property and looking at other properties to develop, and much of this interest is centering on the rail line,” said Tony Salazar, principal in the development firm McCormack Baron Salazar LLP.

The firm is working with the city of L.A.’s housing authority and Related Cos. to develop the $100 million Aliso Village housing project in Boyle Heights, just north of the rail line. McCormack Baron Salazar is also eyeing other sites along the route.

I’m not selling’
One landowner, Anita Castellanos, says she’s received dozens of offers for her 27,000 square feet of retail shops over the last two or three years.

“The offers are coming in from national investment firms, from Orange County, even from doctors at White Memorial (Hospital) just up the street,” she said. “I’m not selling, though. I grew up a few blocks from here and I want to remain here. I just opened up a music school that offers free lessons to children in the community and I want that to continue.”

Castellanos said one of her neighboring property owners “just sold their property for way above what most of us thought was market value – all because of the rail line.”

Near the next planned station at Soto Street, the MTA owns 3.6 acres that local officials have for years been trying to convert into mixed-use development. Cardoso said this site is likely to be next on the MTA’s list for solicitation of proposals.

The largest publicly-owned undeveloped site along the Eastside Extension is in Little Tokyo, at the northeast corner of Alameda and First streets. Once called the Mangrove Estates, this 10-acre, city-owned parcel has seen several development proposals come and go, including one in the late 1980s for a 600-room hotel and 1,200 condo units. The plan was derailed when former councilman Art Snyder, then working as a lobbyist, pleaded guilty to laundering political contributions on behalf of the site’s developer.

At the other end of the Eastside Extension, in unincorporated East Los Angeles, there is little development activity, in part because much of the land is already spoken for. Several major cemeteries line the route, as well as the East Los Angeles Civic Center complex. Construction of the rail line isn’t slated to begin in earnest until late 2006.

But that hasn’t stopped developers and investors from eyeing other East L.A. sites.

Agoura Hills-based Amcal Multi-Housing Inc. is in negotiations to buy land near Third Street on the eastern part of the line. Amcal president Percy Vaz said the company is looking to build about 100 units of housing, with “a little bit of retail.”

Amcal is just finishing up construction of a $107 million mixed-use project at the Avenue 26 Gold Line station in Montecito Heights. That project has 540 residential units, including for-sale condos and affordable housing for families and seniors; it also includes 7,000 square feet of retail.

Mayoral control key to repairing LAUSD

I cannot think of a public issue more compelling for our generation than the need to repair the public school system in Los Angeles.
