Its Getaway Friday 2015 while Emergency Homeless Shelters are Lacking as EL Nino Nears
** Blogger's Note: Its time again for the most anticipated Getaway Friday on the yearly Public Sector Calendar as bureaucrats and politicos switch into slumber/hiatus mode for the Christmas/New Year Holiday Season. For the next two weeks, with many workers, staffers and elected officials taking time away with families, the various offices will operate with skeleton staffs.
But with latest weather forecasts showing a potential, first major El Nino-influenced Storm targeting Southern California for Christmas, first-responders may be beginning an extended period of life-threatening work that is surely to included numerous responses to emergency calls dealing with LA's increased Homeless population.
Many longtime political observers will surely remember the 2004/2005 Record-breaking Rainy Season, where a then, yellow jacket-donning Mayor James Hahn, went from one storm damage location to the next, while being shadowed by challenger Antonio Villar, as they engaged in a form of "Storm Response Politics".
Now ten years later, Mayor Eric Garcetti and the City Council are heading into the Holiday Hiatus without a concrete plan that offers the needed shelter for a vulnerable Homeless Population, just when the much-anticipated El Nino Winter is set to commence.
CD 1 City Councilman Gil Cedillo is to be commended for securing support of his colleagues to reopen the shuttered Bridewell Armory in Highland Park as a emergency shelter, but with thousands of newly-created Homeless (thanks in part to the AB-109 and Prop 47 Legislated Debacles),, creating encampments placed in areas of danger (hillsides and water was), more space is needed.
One location worthy of immediate review is the Hazard Park Armory which currently houses Rec & Parks Staff and the Connected Non-Profit Legacy LA. Located in Councilman Jose Huizar's CD 14, the location, like the Bridewell location, is awaiting much-needed infrastructure rehabilitation (funded in part with a $925,000 allocation via former Supervisor Gloria Molina), but can provided needed space ........., if Councilman Huizar is willing to support a emergency shelter within his Council District----Scott Johnson.

Please Help The Family of Student Andres Perez of Los Angeles International Charter High School
Councilman Cedillo's Motion to use Bridewell Armory as Emergency Homeless Shelter is Approved by Council
We have good news to report. Thanks to our advocacy, LAHSA has agreed to work with our office to approve All Saints Episcopal Church as a winter shelter. After receiving this news, I immediately introduced a motion to place the site on the winter shelter list, securing protections under the shelter crisis. This will allow them to access LAHSA funds and operate through the winter season. It was approved by Council today. I'd like to thank my colleague Councilmember Jose Huizar for graciously donating $20,000 from his discretionary funds to help the shelter continue its work. The City Council also approved a motion I authored, which asks the Department of Recreation and Parks to immediately open the Bridewell Armory as a winter shelter.
Voted today to provide $20k in #CD14 emergency funding immediately to support Recycled Resources for the Homeless important work serving the#homeless community in #NELA. I'm happy to support this more than worthy group seeking to address homelessness in our City. (Notice no mention of Bridewell Armory support).
In lieu of today's Councilman Cedillo-led City Council approved, emergency opening of the Bridewell Armory, we call upon Councilman Cedillo and Councilman Huizar, to make portions of the Hazard Park Armory available to house the increased Homeless Population in ......., and around the Hazard Park connected communities of Lincoln Heights, LA-32 and Boyle Heights-----Scott Johnson.

Creditable Terrorist Threat (whoops hoax) shutters all LAUSD Educational Facilities for Tuesday
** Blogger's Note: Dawn rose (again) on the reality that we live in unsafe times ......, and how our elected leaders respond to "creditable threats" are sure to garner intrinsic scrutiny, especially when a half-million children are forced to remain home.
11:00 A.M. Update: LAPD Chief Charlie Beck and Mayor Eric Garcetti stand behind the decision of Supt. Cortines to shut down all campuses ........, as the media (and Public Official's) scrutiny of his actions commences.
Noon Hour Updates: ISIS is gleeful over the reaction of the alleged, LAUSD Officials-created "Panic in the American Los Angeles".
Sadly, the closing of LAUSD campus played a indirect role in the tragic death of a Highland Park Los Angeles International Charter School Student, who was
From the Hermon Community Facebook Page.
Families, friends, students and staff at the award-winning L.A. International Charter High School in HERMON were deeply sadly this morning to hear from L.A. Police that a young man (identified as Andres Perez of Montebello) struck down as a pedestrian near 7:30 a.m. at Figueroa and Avenue 60 was in fact one of the members of the senior class, walking from home near Highland Park to the school's hilltop campus here. Death was reportedly instantaneous, and the driver (*CORRECTING: of a big-rig semi truck) remained at the scene. Family was in transit to the scene when the school was informed at about 8:30 -- based on his student ID. School officers have joined them there. Hermon 's prayers go with the family and his classmates!
So much for NOT politicizing a tragic death.
Evening Update: We have a Dueling Battle of the Chiefs. New York (and former LAPD Chief) Police Commissioner Bill Bratton states that LAUSD over-reacted to the same email hoax. Current LAPD Chief Charlie Beck lashes back at Bratton for mocking the reaction of LAUSD.
Damned the Hoax ........, continue learning ahead!!: When the going gets rough via a Hoax interfering with the process of learning at Boyle Height's Roosevelt High School , well ........, how about a little whining to go with the twitter?
“When you have a savage teacher and she still wants you to complete her final even though there’s no school,” one of her students wrote on Twitter. The student deleted the post, but still re-tweeted more than a half-dozen responses from friends and classmates also slamming the teacher as “crazy.” “We probably dying and s— and she will be like your hands still work there is no excuse,” another wrote, while a third said she was “hating” the teacher.
Bulldogs .........., and Tigers are laughing at the current state of alleged "Rough Riders".
