Outtakes from CD 14 "The Cut and Paste Capital of Los Angeles"

Hola!!

Been a while since we focus on CD 14 issues. Now with issues aplenty it is time to return the spot light to our unique "CANTON", barring any copper wire theft.

COPPER WIRE THEFT HITS LIGHTS IN BOYLE HEIGHTS:
The world's market for copper has spark numerous acts of theft in Boyle Heights and other areas in the city. Some have posted on Mayor Sam that Public Works Commissioner Cynthia Ruiz has been tardy in dealing with these acts of thievery.

FRIENDS OF THE SOUTHWEST MUSEUM RAISE MONEY:
If anyone thought that Councilman Jose Huizar's"Self-proclaim victory" would be the end to the controversy in retaining the "full museum" on the slopes of Mt. Washington. Then you believe in facades, or are an "exclusive" member of the Southwest Society.
Friends of the Southwest announced that they have raised over $20,000 for their righteous fight to preserve a CD 14 cultural icon.

COUNCILMAN HUIZAR LEADS MARCH AGAINST VERNON POWER PLANT:
Councilman Huizar led a march with members of the Boyle Heights community to protest the "MALBURG POWER PLANT" in the City of Vernon.
It should be notice with interest that former CD 14 "COUNCIL DON" Richard Alatorre and South Pasadena resident Victor Griego have lobbied on the behalf of the City of Vernon for the proposed project.

MAYOR VILLARAIGOSA, COUNCILMAN HUIZAR, SCHOOL BOARD PRESIDENT = VICTORY FOR MAYOR'S EDUCATION PARTNERSHIP:
Mayor's Villaraigosa "Education Partnership" has proclaim victory in yesterday's election at Roosevelt High School, and its two middle schools, Stevenson and Hollenback. **But losing at Jordan and Santee High Schools.**
The Los Angeles Times stated that stakeholders could vote in this special election regardless of citizenship. One can theorize that "Team Villar" in addition to providing buses and vans for transportation to the polling place, could of hired "COYOTES" to provide additional voters to guarantee victory.
There is one rumor that at the CD 14 Turkey giveaway, recipients of free turkeys were ask to sign "support cards" for the Mayor's Education Partnership. Sounds like a "PRI Tactic" if true.

ELECTION RESULTS FOR ARROYO SECO AND HISTORIC HIGHLAND PARK NEIGHBORHOOD COUNCILS:
Arroyo Seco Neighborhood Council
Historic Highland Park Neighborhood Council
How will these elections affect the on-going Southwest Museum saga?

HUIZAR'S WINTER WONDERLAND:
This is no joke. This event will take place on Sunday, December 16 on the corner of Huntington Dr. and Van Horne, from 3:00-8:00 PM.

WHO SAID THIS??:
Is Pollo Loco a "fast food restaurant"?

Please send any CD 14 issues to redspotincd14@yahoo.com "MERRY CHRISTMAS!!"

By DEFINITION, if a restaurant doesn't have water/waitress service, it's a fast food restaurant.

By definition, El Pollo Loco is fast food.

A little side note: chicken is not a low fat food.

(Or is it a "restAurant" -- spelled correctly?)

Who cares who said it, but it's FURTHER proof that Red Snot is too blanking illiterate to be blogging anywhere in the English-speaking world.

And why is "fast food resturant" (sic) in quotes, and not the rest of the mystery quote? Or did the person in question ONLY say the words "fast food restaurant" and not the rest of the question?

Damn, and everyone was harping a few months ago about how one small charter school in CD14 needed to teach the same way as all the other area schools, because kids need to all be educated the same way in order to become good citizens.

I'm pretty sure Red Snot went to REGULAR schools, not the much-maligned charters.

See what that route brought us?

Southern California Community Considers Fast-Food Ban []

12/12/2007 11:20:59 AM Fast-food restaurants could be temporarily banned from opening in South Los Angeles under a plan approved Tuesday by city officials.

The proposed city ordinance, brought forth by Councilwoman Jan Perry, was approved by the council's Planning and Land Use Committee.

“We have a serious problem in my district with fast-food restaurants and the increasing level of obesity and diabetes,” Perry told the panel.

If adopted, the moratorium would prevent fast-food chains from opening new restaurants in the South Los Angeles, West Adams, Baldwin Hills and Leimert Park areas for the next year.

“The over-concentration of fast food businesses in low-income areas, particularly along the Southeast Los Angeles commercial corridors, intensifies socio-economic problems in the neighborhoods, and creates serious public health problems through poor nutrition for children and adults,” Perry wrote to her colleagues in a June letter.

Councilman Jose Huizar on Tuesday questioned the scope of the proposal that has drawn the ire of local restaurant owners.

“What about El Pollo Loco? Would they be included in this?” Huizar asked.

Told the Mexican food chain would be affected, Huizar expressed dismay.

“You can't get healthier food than grilled chicken with the skin off,” Huizar said. “I'm not sure we have looked into all this. I think we should look at what we're doing here and whether what we are doing is things that will make my daughter healthier.”

Everyone on the Eastside knows that Sleazy Weezy didn't do shit to help the Vernon power plant until one of his gofers told him there were over 300 residents taking up the cause. THEN Huizar decided to be there for photo op. Why didn't he oppose this first??? The community isn't dumb and they see that Huizar claims credit for the work of others. Any time anyone wants to have an event THEY ARE TOLD TO PUT HUIZAR PHOTO ON THE FLYER or else....

Seniors are really pissed at Huizar cause he can spend money putting lights on a damn bridge where no one lives to light it up but its pitch black where the seniors live and dangerous for them to walk. Again, dumb ass Huizar.

....A majority of teachers at each campus had to vote yes in order to join the mayor. Two high schools apparently failed to reach the majority threshold: Jordan High in Watts and the Santee Education Complex south of downtown. Forty-seven percent of Jordan teachers voted for the plan; 45% of Santee teachers were willing to go with the mayor

Speaking of CD Catorce (and schools?), did everyone fail to notice that one of the teachers at the Mayfield private school-where Tony V. sent his daughter to keep her out of public schools in the district when he was the CM-was recently nabbed during a child porn sting?

http://www.latimes.com/news/local/la-me-schools4dec04,1,2348.story?ctrack=1&cset=true

Remember, Tony V. wanted his kids to have a "religious" education -- it had NOTHING to do with LAUSD schools in the district being lousy.

Yeahhhh, riiiiight Mr. Former Councilmember.

4:41: Shut u-p and get off this blog. Your taxpayer funded anti- American Mecha school isn't "one small school" that is criticized "because it needed to teach like everyone else." Its scores suck in math, or course in English which they don't believe in, everything else.

But they have Aztec dancing while lying about the "unpleasant" but central aspects of the religion, lots of crapola goes on there and anti-"gringo" stuff. You know, the gringos paying for their "education."

The numerous disasters of that "school" cum Mecha factory are well-documented.

Get off this blog, stop justifying the failures of your ignorant MeCHa leaders and boss. Since you pop up every time anyone talks about Huizar, wonder if that's you's got you churning out this anti-American garbage?

You just make yourself look stupid and anxious. This message is for those who don't know about the MeCHA school you're justifying, not for you, you're a lost cause.

Go raise money for your MeCHA programs privately --LAUSD wastes too much money being incompetent even when it's trying to teach, let alone when it goes against the entire Cal state curriculum.

Ooops... seems like someone from Pollo Loco was a contributor to Huizar's campaign fund.

Why is it that he says "I'm not sure we have looked into all this," that it sounds like giving some real thought to examining their actions is something unique rather than routine?

Another curious statement is that he adds his concern, "... things that will make my daughter healthier." Is this his primary basis for acting? What about being concerned regarding other issues for the well-being of the daughters of OTHER people?

Mr. Huizar seems to do best for his image when he is NOT speaking out and being quoted.

Perry and clowncil getting blasted for this stupid ordinance. Take away people's right to choose where they can eat. What about the gang violence and guns in Perry's district? Instead of focusing on that she's worried about fast food chains. What about bringing in decent chain markets Jan? Since when does a city have the right to tell people where and what to eat? Does anyone know of another city that is this stupid?

11:11PM (now deleted), you said, "5:13 Jose A. stay out of Boyle Heights!!!" (i deleted the unnecessary personal stuff).

Bro, (11:11pm) -- you know i'm friends with jose...and i can assure you -- there is no way he could have typed 5:13pm.

As someone who frequently transcribes jose's words...he don't speak like that...and don't type that smoothly, either.

Jose A is all about the spoken word -- AND his ability to rally the community.

But don't worry, just because he may have not typed the comment...

there's a good chance he provided the person who did the information.

4:29 Your are an idiot, a broiled skinless chicken breast IS low fat food.

Many body builders (includging this one) eat skinless chicken breasts, because it's low fat and high in protein. You obviously know nothing about heath and fitness training or politics.

But most Mayor Sam's supporters are just another dumb Burro who criticize anything Villaraigosa and Mexican.

Why doent someone get a non-profit "food establishment" to serve, teach and monitor illness in the community. It could be MADE affordable; if Mcdonalds can make an Mcmuffin for a dollar, so can a good chef that specializes in HEALTHY FOOD.

If not having a waiter/waitress makes something "fast food", then Boston Market is a "fast food" restaurant (Not!), Quiznos is "fast food" (Not!), Panda Express is "fast food" (Not!), every cafeteria every opened, and most corner delis are "fast food" (Not!).

Better come up with a better definition than "no wait-service" -- maybe something about having drive-through windows at most locations and doing a major part of their business with smog-belching vehicles idling for 10 minutes outside the eatery doors at noontime.

(And seriously, are the Hooters Girls REALLY waitresses, or just soft-porn eye candy that happen to drop off appetizers in the process of entertaining the self-disrespecting and deluded losers who pretend they eat there for the food quality?)

Actually, all those options you mention ARE fast food -- fast doesn't have to mean high calorie or burgers and fries, it's anything that you can carry out and doesn't have to be coooked to order. (Meanwhile some fast food burgers ARE cooked when you order, isn't wendy's? And I'm pretty sure Carl's jr. sandwiches are.)

Pollo loco IS healthy, sort of defies the convention of heavy Mexican food.

A lot healthier than "American" style KFC, which is finally about to be pressure into not using trans fats to fry its tasty chickens.

People are laughing their asses off because it was mentioned at a huge xmas lunch about "Huizar's Winter Wonderland" and how GAY SOUNDING it is.

Does Huizar really think a straight guy would have his name on something like this? OH HELL NO!!!! Maybe those rumors Alvin Parra put out were true.

Apparently, it doesn't have to mean "fast" either.

I don't think the City Council is seeking a ban because people are getting their food too quickly . . . it's the high caloriric content and low nutritional value of (some) "fast foods" as someone somewhere arbitrarily defines them.

It was Bob's Big Boy (a "sit down" restaurant with wait staff), that invented what McDonalds calls the "Big Mac" -- which is now the poster-sandwich for unhealthy food. The main difference is you have to wait 30 minutes there to have it handed to you by someone who dropped out of an LAUSD school, and pay twice as much for the privilege (plus tip).

And Denny's and IHOP and Carrows will gladly have someone carry over to your sticky-with-syrup table something almost identical to what the Colonel puts in his greasy buckets or faux Mexican fare that strangely resembles Taco Bell's menu items. Ditto the other aspects from above.

This is another governmental debacle like when the state tried to tax "snack" foods a few years back and ended up chasing it's own tail trying to decide where to draw the line between "chips" and "crackers" (and how many angels could dance on the edge of each kind of food).

Until FINALLY, the whole foolish scheme had to be thrown out. I demand a refund on the 36 extra cents they charged me for my Cheezits and beef jerky.

Oh, you gottabe kidding with the "new neighborhood council boards" stuff. Neither Villagairosa or Hiuzar paid any attention when these same NC leaders voted against what the new "blue ribbon" crew wanted. When both pushed for a stronger stand against Gene Autry's heirs plowing under the community's requests for a real museum in Highland Park.

Why would they listen now? They've just invented their OWN "community spokespeple" to listen to, who will kiss their arses and ask for seconds. They can show the NC boards the door, even moor.

Why listen to "elected" community boards when you can appoint your own, behind closed doors.

That has ALWASYS been the Tony V. way.

"Consenus" it what I tell you it will be, and nothing more. don't like it, I start a new group that will give me a standing ovation for my "leadership" skills"

Maybe an apt punishment for gang-bangers in Perry's district would be to force-feed them fatty fast food. Anyone ever hear of fat gang-bangers trying to hide somewhere after committing a crime, or successfully eluding the police by outrunning them?
