Mayor Sam's Hotsheet for Wednesday
Tuesday LA County Chief Administrative Officer David Janssen told the County Board of Supervisors he will be retiring next January. Janssen has been on the job since 1996, prior to that he served 13 years with San Diego County.
A 92 year old widow in Woodland Hills has created a stir because she wants to sell her property for condo development. Of course, the local neighbors are against it. The woman's family says that maintenance has just got too expensive and the property is the woman's only asset. Of course, they're trying to get the DWP to sell adjacent land to be used as parkland, hoping that will put restrictions or perhaps derail the development. Our favorite motorcycle cop turned policeman, Dennis Zine is involved, pushing the DWP to sell the land to the dreaded Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy. Dennis, you're supposed to be a Republican, don't go there. Support private property rights and let the old lady sell her house.
LA Voice is reporting (with ride video) that Disneyland has once again made over the legendary "Pirates of the Carribbean" ride, this time to include Johnny Depp and elements from the popular film franchise loosely based on the ride. I hate to see the classics messed with, but we hear this is much better than Disney's politically correct rehab back in 1997.
Wednesday night Mayor Villaraigosa will make his weekly TV news appearances, en Espanol on Univision Channel 34 and later in English on KCAL 9.
