Mayor Sam's Hotsheet for Thursday

A man who lives in a Skid Row hotel sued the city of Los Angeles and police Chief William Bratton today, claiming he is a victim of what he says are increased police searches of residents in the area. John Quarles seeks unspecified damages and a court finding that "past, present and threatened future" actions by Los Angeles police violate Skid Row residents' rights. The suit also seeks a court order barring the city and police from interfering with constitutionally protected activities by the potential class of plaintiffs.

Andrew at Here in Van Nuys recalls a 1999 encounter with recently passed former President Gerald R. Ford. Andrew was working on a television interview program that featured Ford.

LA County officials are recommending people should stay away from the ocean through the weekend because rainfall may have increased bacteria levels in the water.

A recent UCLA graduate by the name of Gina Elise has started an interesting project to help hospitalized veterans. "Pin Ups for Vets" is a calendar featuring poses of Elise in what she calls "cheesecake" photos reminiscient of World War II era pin up queens such as Betty Grable. The funds raised by the project will benefit veteran hospital programs; as well calendars will be given to the men as gifts. For more information please click here.

The Automobile Club of Southern California will offer its free Tipsy Tow service to drivers during the New Year's weekend. Drivers can call the Auto Club for a free tow home beginning at 6 p.m. on Friday through the end of the day on Monday.

Commuters in Canoga Park can now catch the Metro Orange Line thanks to a station and parking lot unveiled Wednesday by transit officials. The Metro Orange Line Canoga station at Victory Boulevard and Canoga Avenue is part of a one-third-mile extension of the busway. The station includes 611 free parking spaces and pedestrian and bicycle paths.

This is not an event I plan to attend as an old, Republican mayor, but for the rest of you commies out there the San Fernando Valley Young Democrats are hosting their annual Robert F. Kennedy Awards program on Thursday, January 25th. Winners announced Wednesday include newly elected State Controller John Chiang, incoming State Assemblyman Mike Feuer and the daughter of failed Democratic gubenatorial candidate Phil Angelides, Megan Garcia (you might remember the Angelides campaign commercials she appeared in with her sisters that set many a young man's hear aflutter here on the Sister City.)

Resentment is rising at the replacement of longtime KTLA Rose Parade co-host Stephanie Edwards with the younger Michaela Pereira. If the sentiments of readers at Martini Republic are any indication some folks will not be tuning into the CW. Hey at least they're not sticking us with Sam Rubin and Mark Kriski! By the way if you want to boycott KTLA, you have other choices to watch the show. Also airing the parade is ABC, NBC, HGTV, Univision, Telemundo, Travel Channel, Discovery HD Theater and Sky Link TV.

And finally, we see that the Westside White Guy has set up a blog to publish reader emails. How cute. No need for the middleman here at the Sister City. You can blog away dum dums on your own.

You're wrong. I live in CD14 and it is absolutely a grassroot effort. In fact, Ted Hayes name is not even mentioned in the circles we travel with people who want Tony gone. However, Ted Hayes is very political and would not compromise his position unless he truly believed in the cause. He is well respected in the community. This has nothing to do with Hahn and everything to do with people wanting Tony OUT. People who actually live in his district.

Villaraigosa left Ted Hayes hanging when he told the Muslim community "he didn't read" Ted's motion when he introduced it to the council.

Oh no - He dissed Ted Hayes over a motion -- recall the SOB!!

Oh no --He "promised" he would stay on not represent us at City Hall and be the first mayor from our community (geographically speaking of course, i can't go around upsetting all the racist) -- recall the SOB!!!

Oh no -- He hasn't done anything in a year in a half (nevermind...ending the strike, reviving the Gold Line, LARX, new constituent ctr in El Sereno, Days of service...) -- recall the SOB.

Oh no - his staff is incompetent -- more lawyers on staff than any city councilmember (maybe thats what the LA Times meant when it said he could attract a good staff) former dodger executive, small business operators/owners, Microsoft/Nickelodeon IT recruits, USC, Stanford, Cal and yes even Garfield and Roosevelt graduates -- recall the SOB!!!

Oh no he supports gangbangers -- now this one is the MOST idiotic statement of all, doesn't deserve a response -- recall the SOB.

Oh no he takes money from neighborhood councils -- He's never ever ever taken money from a neighborhood council and placed it in any of his accounts, no neighborhood council has given money to Antonio or any of his staff -- but nonetheless -- recall the SOB!!!

Oh no he said he had no money, which is true, but of course the community wanted money from his PAC -- no one on this blog has produced any documentation to support this claim, just a whole bunch of chatter. Antonio spent his money on...neighbor to neighbor, ACORN...etc -- groups that operate and do GOOD things in CD14 - oh and he gave money to try to get more cops in the city -- but nevermind the facts -- recall the SOB!!!

I feel like all this typing goes to waste on you weird recall supporters -- "but MEAT, i hope you'd go to a community mtg and see....blah blah blah. -- recall the SOB!!!

Meat you're such a drama queen. To end the argument quickly I invite you to the next Boyle Heights Neighborhood Council on Dec. 2 at the Boyle Heights Senior Center. Ask any board member if they gave Antonio $1,000 and you will have your answer. THEY DID. Next, go to the LA 32 Neighborhood Council and ask the same. THEY DID. Antonio DID NOT end the MTA strike. Hahn and Ludlow did but like everything else ANtonio jumps in front of the cameras and takes credit. You may have been campaign person but sure sounds like you are SO out of touch on this one. You need to research more and realize your mayor is a fake.

You go and put a turkey in the oven and all of a sudden an argument breaks out.

whew!! its not just hot in my kitchen, its hot in here as well.

Someone is on the MEAT trail, claiming i am under 30 is a shrewd move to uncover me -- but alas no clues from me.

Umm as for Antonio only having 2 staffer living in the district -- 100% not true, he has many more than 1.

Wait a second MEAT, you must be on his payroll to know this -- no dum-dum -- i just know his staff, wait oh my god, i even know hahn's staff -- uh-oh could it be that i know hertzberg's staff as well. Hold your horses, are you saying MEAT that you know Alarcon's folks as well. The answer is YES -- and for good measure i know a couple of peeps with Parks.

SOooooo everyone needs to calm down a bit, i've known these people long before a mayor's race ever came to be -- this is how i know my stuff.

As for those that claim Antonio is out of touch -- here's a simple truth. EVERY CANDIDATE IS OUT OF TOUCH, INCLUDING THIS MAYOR - ANYONE THATS SAYS ANYTHING OTHERWISE IS LYING!!!!

Ok, now that we can agree on that - let me push further -- the only barometer is the election to see who is "perceived" to be in touch the best. Outide of the election we have polls -- every poll i've seen has Antonio in the lead -- hence he is perceived to be the most in touch with Angelino's.

Others may get the lead later - but until then -- Antonio has the midas touch right now.

Happy Thanksgiving.

First of all Laura Chick has her own problems and is the last person that should be accusing anyone. Didn't the Ethics Commission get her on violation of receiving campaign money? Secondly, wasn't she the one who is suppose to question bills before paying them? Didn't she receive campaign money from Fleishman? Parks and Villaraigosa both received campaign money from Fleishman as well so again who are they to be talking? And lastly wasn't Hertzberg a consultant for Fleishman as early as March of this year? As far as I'm concerned ALL these people have thrown their crediability out the window.

Valley to lose in cutback
Lean projects to suffer as Democrats attack pork
BY LISA FRIEDMAN, Washington Bureau
Article Last Updated: 12/26/2006 11:08:59 PM PST

WASHINGTON - The Southland stands to lose more than $111 million for everything from hospitals to road improvements next year as Democrats vow to strip legislators' pet projects out of the federal budget.

The looming cuts are certain to squeeze hundreds of projects from the San Fernando Valley to San Bernardino, drawing the ire of local officials who say important programs are being unfairly punished for years of reckless spending in Washington, dramatized in debate over $320 million earmarked earlier this year for a bridge to connect two sparsely populated communities in rural Alaska.

Only after she played the press did she FINALLY use her authority to reject requests for payments that lacked proper paperwork. What took so long??? And how did the other $4.2 million get past HER desk???

What a scam. What responsibility should the CONTROLLER take in the fiasco? She does sign ALL the checks in the City.

Laura Chick was on KABC radio this morning and they discussed how the DWP sponsors the Dodgers. Maybe a scan of the Ethics Commission database for the Dodgers and their past and current owners would be in order.

The DWP - a city agency with a total monopoly - spends $24 million per year on PR. Think of how many cops that could buy! (Probably at least 1500-2000).

Much of the DWP largese is showered on community groups and events. While a good cause in theory, it would be interesting to connect this money to the Mayor, Council, et al.

Fleishman-Hillard is in business to make money. That's what businesses do, right? City officials are supposed to use the lowest cost responsible bidder. City officials can cancel a contract or award away from the lowest cost responsible bidder.

City officials wrote the contract. City officials administered the contract. City officials used the services for years. City officials approved the purchases. The Controller's Office paid for the services rendered for years.

After six years of abuse, Laura Chick and City officials (contract users) get the idea to blame Fleishman-Hillard for not managing the City's money...

Why aren't the city officials held responsible? Aren't they responsible for prudent use of city resources in the best interests of the citizens?

Do we need a contractor to monitor our City officials? Isn't it supposed to be the other way around?

Should we question the use of the City Attorney's office attempt to transfer blame to Fleishman-Hillard?

Are these bankrobbers blaming the government for minting the stolen money?

Tony's Letter for Drug Dealer will still Haunt Him

Why?

Because every time someone accuses Jimmy of abusing his office by raising money for anti-secession/campaign and favoring those individuals with city contracts or permits, someone from Jimmy's campaign team** will remind voters how Tony used the Speaker's office to declare a drug dealer innocent and released from prison.

Favors to contributors or drug dealer back in your neighborhood, which is worse?

IMHO, voters already think EVERY politician does favors for their contributors, but do they think a politician will use their office to declare drug dealers innocent?? We'll see.

** You should notice that Tony and Jimmy have their "people" attack their opponents. Tony didn't attack the recall, his consultants Smith and Skelton did. Kuwata is Jimmy's sharp tongue, especially in the print press.

Most are primarily too lazy to sign up for a free blogger account (which they can do using either their real name or pseudonym).

Meat, is Tony behind you telling you what to type? Bottom line is that drug letter really bothered Angelenos. That cost Tony the election and people don't forget. He's already proven he has a big integrity problem. Parks is the last person to be saying anything about public safety and corruption. He promoted one of his closest Deputy Chief's knowing full well he was under investigation for money laundering by the FBI and IRS. Richard Alaracon wanted to legalize vendors and illegal immigrant status. Say what you want about Hahn but HE WAS THE ONLY ONE who wanted to give us more officers last year. Now everyone is jumping on the bandwagon. Compared to these candidates baggage or not he's still looking pretty GOOD

Of all the people who wrote letters to support Vignali, ONLY Tony went so far as to declare the drug dealer innocent in his letter.

Baca asked that he get moved to a closer prison, for the families sake.

BTW, racist don't need television ads to remind them they are racist. A name like Villaraigosa may be just the right tickler for their memory.

The answer as to why they thought they could get away with fleecing us isn't that difficult at all.

Check out this link: Los Angeles MarathonOr this one: William BurkeOr this one: Marie PatrickTo Devine Racing's credit, they didn't invest in the lemons at city hall. At least not yet...

For those of you without a calculator handy, they donated a combined $22,500 to local officials over the years.
This crap has got to stop or city council members should lose their seats. We're desperately looking for money and corporations like this get a handout thanks to our tax dollars. No more.....LAPD and DOT have to work these events. Why should a company from outside the city come in and make $$$$ at our expense then leave with the profits. HELLL NOOOOOO

He donated the most to Bernie. Would love to see the motions pertaining to this and how they were voted. When did they decide to sell our CITY LOGO to these idiots? Don't we the taxpayers hae anything to say about it?

It's hard to believe that the city isn't making $$$$$ from all the millions they stand to gain.

OH NO....Please not William Morris! All I can say is "thank goodness" after decades of LAPD being ignored all the politicans are now saying "WE NEED MORE COPS."

Alaracon came out saying he has a plan without raising taxes to get us 1,000. Would love to hear that one...I bet he won't say unless he's elected.

Tony Villar??? Who's that??? I'm sorry, I only know Antonio Villaraigosa.

Hate him or love him, at least show some respect by addressing him by his real name. I don't like the guy that much and I can barely pronounce his name, but I'm not going to butcher his name up just to jab at him behind the protection of an anonymous blog posting.

Also of note is Hugsberg's $99 a plate dinner which can fly just below the radar of the $100 contribution reporting requirement. Despite what you think of that, I think its a good thing for candidates to hold some cut rate fundraisers and let some of the smaller cats have a crack at you. In an election as tight as this one will be, every bit helps.

Gee, I wonder where Bob got the idea for $99? Could it have been the recallvillaraigosa.com site? Still no answer on how much money Bob was paid by Fleishman-Hillard.

Where in the World Is Antonio Villaraigosa? That's exactly what the people in his district have been asking since 2003. He spent more time in the district during the 5-6 month campaign for council than he has in the 18 months since. And he's got the frequent flyer miles to prove it.

COMPULSIVE LIAR.

This was supposedly the title of a long-running joke among Pacheco's campaign staff in 2002, when ADV first carpetbagged into the district in order to run against him. He moved into the very last house on the very last street in a little hidden, east-edge L.A. community called Hermon -- you know where the dog parke name riled people up recently. (No kidding, his backyard was technically in South Pasadena).

But that wasn't the joke -- when he first started running (after the move), his staff told one newspaper he had moved to Highland Park (across the river from Hermon), he told another paper he was on the edge of Eagle Rock (3-5 miles from the actual rental), and a third paper printed he had moved to Monterey Hills. So everyone was asking then, "Where in the WORLD. . .?"

Based on the phone conversation I just had, I would like to place a bet in Vegas:

Odds that there will be a "Special Election" in '07 because one or more Councilmembers will be forced to vacate their seats.

How about the mayor gives me a Section 8 housing voucher if I'm right?

plz someone start a new thread.
we need to talk about Bratton, its important. someone's suing now over skid row harassment. Billy's got his mind on what his next book deal will be. he wanted to build a national terrorism training center here. I mean plz....show me the compelling need to be training the rest of the country here. that center should be in Cleveland or Washington DC or anywhere else but here. can anyone else see that his mind is really NOT on the immediate problems in Los Angeles City? Bitter Bernie is one who is on to him, I gotta give him that. regardless of Bernie's motives.
Bratton's paid to be Los Angeles police chief, not a novelist, or criminologist, or terrorism consultant...there's people for that. his job is to run LAPD. I wouldn't think there'd be time for anything else. we pay an annual salary, and its a lot. start demanding his concentration to his job.
from LA Times:
"...Bratton, whose 1998 autobiography "Turnaround" was a critical success, said he is in the formative stages on the new book after publishers turned down his pitch for a book on terrorism, saying the market on that subject is glutted.The chief said that if he writes a book, it would not take away from his job as head of the LAPD."


I say let him go after one term, his media career is calling.
it'll be deja vu for him...New York saw fit to dispatch him... eventually.

why do we need a book on federal diversion of funds to anti-terrorism? just write a letter to Bush, explain your concerns, then get back to running LAPD.
I don't understand why everything has to be a book deal.
and it smacks of hypocrisy that one minute he's calling for the federal govt to spend tons of money on anti terrorism training center, then turn around and complain that federal money is going to anti terrorism instead of local crime fighting.

Is ALL of this stuff two years old? So does that mean Laura Chick WASN'T on KABC this week speaking about DWP? Damn, I got excited for nothing.

But, actual dumb-ass (you), remember: Based on the conversation I had last night, based on things that happened in '06, ZD wants to know where he can bet in Vegas that there will be a "Special Election" in '07 because one or more Councilmembers will be forced to vacate their seats?

No wonder Council is trying to keep me out of City Hall for two years. As if that would prevent me from bringing my information to the people. Maybe they can also ban me from this blog, KABC/KFI, public access TV and news articles in '07.

You're so nice to me on the phone, then you hammer me here. Dude, hate to break it to you, but the way they arrested me, Garcetti's Election & Rules meeting that is paving the way for some seriously scary stuff that NO American should be happy about, regardless of what you think about ZD vs CC.

Call me on my cell and I'll tell you more. So, sorry if something involving me is newsworthy. I'm sure you'll be reading more in LA Daily News in early '07. But I'll try and have them leave my name out of the story so some crybabies don't get jealous.

It IS about ZD, when there is selective enforcement of the "law" (and I have to use the term loosley, cause it wasn't really enforcement of law...just one guy's loss of his temper and judgement.

Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen (bows low and removes hat):

Having a field day are we, sots? Especially Himself that you have named Meat. The pirate crew knows the skeleton that flies upon Himself's S&C. Ah yes, indeed Himself is a purveyor of meat. Ask Madame Wu, she'll tell you that this jackanape knows the difference between a bone-in and a butterfly cut, which perhaps is the deepest cut of all, savvy?

One of the crew has had dealings with Himself, and while dead men tell no tales, pirates hold the treasure chest as knowledge is power. Isn't that so, Emma, luv?

I would ask Himself this one simple question, and let's see how Himself answers, shall we? Which scares you more; the pen or the sword? Methinks he'll say neither, and if he does then it is proof that Himself wields neither pen or sword, but instead sits behind the King plying the fan, savvy?

Out of the frying pan and onto the spit, eh Meat? Of course, launched attacks against moi only serve as gravy.

Will someone please kick Zuma and Matt's asses and make them behave like MEN. Damn, I'm sick of them constantly being so damn negative. Go the hell back where you both came from and leave LA. People are sick of you two. Matt is a fucking loser who can't shave or shower and is a complete idiot. Now you're going after Bratton you stupid fuck. Ask Bernie how many millions Rampart cost the city because of him. I'll tell you $70 mil and counting. Ask Bernie why he was more racist against his own black cops. Bratton wants law enforcement to come here moron because LAPD is the best trained in the world and every damn newspaper has given him credit for his police philosophies. But Matt you're a complete idiot and pretend to be educated. Again you idiot the book is more then what you state. Damn can't you fucking READ? You are in a minority if you want to blast Bratton. Because cops hated Bitter Bernie 1,000 left and we needed them. Ask Bernie about his coke head daughter.

Matt after reading that story it sure sounds like Bratton is doing a lousy job. Every city outside LA crime has risen but not LA which has declined for the past years Bratton's been chief.

Read this: "But on Tuesday, even some skeptics were tipping their hats to the chief, saying five straight years of decline clearly shows the LAPD is doing something right.

Bratton shot back, co-writing a National Review article taking to task ivory tower academics," who have "never sat in a patrol car, walked or bicycled a beat, lived in or visited regularly troubled violent neighborhoods."

On Tuesday, Bratton credited his police officers with reducing crime in Los Angeles but said the city needs more of them.

Great story on Bratton and other stories always saying he's the best chief in the nation. Antonio even said it.
