Mayor Sam's Hotsheet for Tuesday

The old, dead, Republican Mayor is back from his trip to beautiful Klamath in Del Norte County in Northern California. Thanks to Walter Moore for holding down the fort while I was gone.

City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo has lost another battle. The Frisky Kitty strip club in Tarzana can continue to operate, a judge ruled today. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Dzintra Janavs denied a motion by the Los Angeles City Attorney's Office to issue a preliminary injunction against the club at 18454 Oxnard St. and its owner, Jamal Haddad.

Local activist David Hernandez continues on in his efforts to get Governor Schwarzenegger to veto AB 1381, legislation that would allow Mayor Villaraigosa to take over the LA schools. His "Republicans for Rational Reform" have set up a blog, click here.

The folks at the Palms-Village Sun are all for a local condo conversion, except they're a bit miffed at the buildings switch to a gray paint scheme and that the developer is telling folks the project is in Culver City, when its actually in Palms.

Fresh off being booted from LA Cityview by Councilman Bernie Parks, the Full Disclosure cable television program has a two part interview with controversial Maricopa County (Arizona) Sheriff, Joe Arpaio.

Gary Toebben, writing in the LA Chamber of Commerce's Business Perspective, has a report that the Automobile Club is making an adjustment as to how drivers' insurance rates are set, creating a net decrease in many motorists' insurance policies.

We need to rethink our love affair with the front lawn, according to a new report by the Public Policy Institute of California. Inland area homes in particular require two to three times more water for landscaping purposes than their coastal counterparts. Why are we so obsessed with the empty front lawn with all the mowing, watering and weeding necessary for its upkeep? And, with the increased strain on water resources, what, if anything, can be done to change our mindset about lush lawns? The topic will be discussed Tuesday on Patt Morrison's radio program on KPCC, 2:00 p.m.

While we were gone, Martini Republic set up a new blog. Big Apple Martini, penned by TS, is an already a well-known NYC blogger. His blog Tristram Shandy has been recently noted by the Columbia Journalism Review and on several prominent progressive blogs around the country.

In todays headlines we read "LA Officials Plan to Hire 1,000 New Officers by 2010"

If we follow this mentality we will be in need of 10,000 officers by 2010 based on trend of current events.

In all seriousness, Klamath is stunningly beautiful. California is such a majestic state, I praise God every minute he gives me the privilege of living in this land.

This blog isn't the same. But then again, the goal was met. This blog was a clever political tool to bash Hahn and insinuate pay to play and other supposed unethical actions. Look at what happened since AV won: #1 posts on this blog gradually decrease #2 focus of conversation is cd14 and constant infighting (AV = CD14) #3 because most all of current staff is AV ally or relative no one dares say anything negative about our current establishment. This was an AV blog from the get go. Hertzberg ran against AV intentionally. They needed to divide the votes enough so when Hertzberg was defeated (being the minority of the three)his votes would automatically go to AV based on his endorsement.

So there you are,the reason this blog has fallen to crap. We do need a blog that can keep the focus on City Hall, development, city bonds and taxes, trash issues, water increases, environmental impact, nepotism and lastly "pay for play".

Will someone step up to the plate and create a new site similr to the original Mayor Sam???

Quit with the cut-and-paste. Lets put our heads together and find a way to stop the Jews from warmongering.

Could care less about the cut and paste crew or person. What I do know is Aztlan.net and racist Marcos Aguilar spew hate towards jews and capitalist USA. What do you expect from Latin Community If they're all mixed up?

Jews are not the problem my friend. Clean your glasses, windows, mind and realize terrorists (gang bangers, hezbollah, hamas, Segregationists, marxists, communists)are the threat
