In an effort to provide more jobs for City workers, the City of Los Angeles took over management January 1st of rental golf carts at City owned golf courses. You might be able to guess what happened the first day: no one remembered to plug the carts in and charge them. Lots of unhappy golfers!
Ron Kaye recaps the brouhaha over the LAX contract that was sought by the paramour of CM Dennis Zine. Though the Council eventually followed the due diligence of staff and went with the more qualified bidder, there sure was an abusive earful given to Airport officials to make it clear that next time you better award bids to our friends and girlfriends!
It used to be that public facilities, schools, etc. were named after folks who were dead. Then, it was after they had retired. Now elected officials in Los Angeles such as Mike Antonovich, Mark Ridley Thomas and Tom LaBonge are providing public place namesakes left and right. Ridley Thomas even defended the practice saying that the naming of a City building after him was an honor that would be ungracious to refuse. How about saying such a refusal would be humble, Mark?
Food trucks in the Valley are joining up to rent vacant land and providing impromptu food courts for diners.
