This is the city: Los Angeles, California. I work here. I'm an ex-mayor. Los Angeles is a magnet for people from all over the world. Some of them run for public office. Inevitably some of them stray from the golden rule and rule for those that have the gold. That's when I go to work. My name is Yorty. I'm a dead pol.
Does USC Really Care about Alcohol Abuse (and its Impact on Sensitive Communities)?
With NO apologies to the LAPD Hollenbeck CPAB Members who covertly voted (via a misleading meeting agenda) to support five additional ABC Alcohol Licenses for the University of Southern California Health Science Campus Hyatt Hotel Development, we must ask USC President Max Nikias and its Board of Trustees, whether the Private University ......., REALLY CARES about Alcohol Abuse ......, and its impact on Sensitive Communities.

** Blogger's Note: We received the following from former Lincoln Heights/ LA-32 Neighborhood Council Member and noted Alcohol Abuse Activist Hugo Pacheco. In recent years, Pacheco has been the Front Person in the successful efforts to stop further Alcohol Proliferation within the Lincoln Heights and the 90032 Communities (the scuttled Las Villas Project, Eastlake & Broadway 7-Eleven Store denied Beer/Wine License and the El Sereno "Big Saver Market denied ABC License Upgrade). As Mayor Sam recently disclosed, USC sought to circumvent the Boyle Heights, Lincoln Heights and the LA-32 Neighborhood Councils, in covertly seeking the inappropriate (via violating LAPD CPAB Protocols) support of the LAPD Hollenbeck Division CPAB. In response, Pacheco has keyboard the brief missive posted below, that ponders whether LA's largest employer, is engaging in double-speck regarding its commitment to combating Alcohol Abuse within its Institution ........, and in the communities surrounding its campuses----Scott Johnson.
As has been stated at the LA-32 Neighborhood Council Meetings, USC is seeking to obtain 5 new liquor licenses on its Health Science Campus in Boyle Heights.

The rhetoric sounds good but you can also see the failure in the much touted AlcoholEdu, an online science-based alcohol prevention program that provides a tailored educational experience focusing on the impact of alcohol on mind and body.
