Los Angeles Politics Hotsheet for Wednesday

A school in Compton is the first to announce it's being taken over by parents as a result of the new Parent Trigger Law that was made possible by education activists such as MayorSam friend Lydia Grant.  McKinley Elementary, a horrible school noted for mega-poor results, saw 61% of parents agree to sign a petition to boot existing management.  Of course, reprobate school board members and culpable teachers' union leaders are crying in their beer and crying foul.  But the only thing that is foul is how they ran the school. Kudos to the parents!

Dr. Daniel Wiseman is quite the expert on many things local here in Los Angeles. That being said I don't know what he is saying here about the Department of Neighborhood Empowerment (DONE) being done other than yes, it's been done for a while.  Suggestions?

The nanny state continues unabated here in Los Angeles.  Hamburger Jan Perry continues her assault on fast food with yet another goofy ban on the outlets in South Central.  Hamburger Jan's central theme is that people who live in these areas are too damn stupid to figure out what to eat without her help.  The idea is by limiting how many joints can open, there will be an increase in healthy options as there are in other parts of LA.  Hamburger Jan, who apparently does want fries with that, does not know the real secret to more choices: people in the areas where they exist demand them and vote with their pocket books.

The NFL San Diego Chargers could be headed to Los Angeles.  The team, which actually started in LA at the Coliseum, could return there temporarily as early as the 2012 season while they await a new downtown stadium being built by Hamburger Jan's friends at AEG.

Zuma Dogg, expecting a cash payout soon from his triumphant lawsuit victory against the City of Los Angeles, is outlining his plans for philanthropy.

Is Henry's Market coming to NoHo?

Ironic, ain't it. Mayor Tony using the veto -- an existing form of "checks and balances" -- to kill something the City Council Ten said would create new "checks and balances" re: DWP.

"Balance" is apparently in the eye of the beholder in L.A.

Everybody at city council today is bitching about the plan that Fresh & Easy submitted in order to open a store at Crenshaw and 52nd.

Wah, wah, wah, we can't find fresh food choices.

Here's a clue, losers in Parks' district: don't burn down your fucking neighborhood the next time there's a police injustice. Don't loot. Don't vandalize. Don't graffiti.

This is why your community has so few healthy food options. It's your own fucking fault.

Let's see the hands of people who believe that if Zuma Dogg came into some cash he would keep it all for himself.

For all California community newspapers, libraries, T.V. stations, schools, PTA's, Teachers, Students, and "concerned" Parents:

STANDARD FOR UNDERSTANDING AND ORGANIZING SUBJECT MATTER FOR STUDENT LEARNING.......Teachers exhibit working knowledge of subject matter and student development. Teachers organize curriculum to facilitate students' understanding of the central themes, concepts, and skills in the subject area. Teachers interrelate ideas and information within and across curricular areas to extend students' understanding. Teachers use their knowledge of student development, subject matter, instructional resources and teaching strategies to make subject matter accessible to all students.

Key Element:
As Citizens develop, they may ask, "How do WE...."or Why do WE use the California Content Standards?...Where can WE find them?
