** As the sum sets on LA Assessor John Noguez's first night in the county lock-up, his bank will still continue to receive his automatic deposits from the county taxpayers. LA Weekly's Gene Maddaus has the documented charges and comments from the likes of LA County District Attorney Steve Cooley.
** Continuing on with tales of public corruption, the LA Times is reporting that a City of Los Angeles Recreation and Parks Director, has been arrested for embezzling money from programs fees at Montecito Heights Recreation Center.
** If you have not notice already what AB 109 is doing in regards to the early release of thousands of supposed non-revocable parole/non violent offenders, then take the time to read Bob Walsh's excellent dissertation on the pending crash and burn that is prison reform in California.
** So your a Green Tech investor/owner looking for manufacture space around Downtown LA ? Consider these realities via the Downtown News.

In 2010, Greneker was looking to start a new business manufacturing countertops out of recycled materials. They planned to invest about $1 million in a facility. They found candidates in empty or underused industrial buildings in Downtown, but none made financial sense, Johnson recently told 14th District City Councilman José Huizar and a room of developers.“The sheer labor and cost it would take to go ahead and repurpose those buildings, to bring them up to current codes and adaptability to the type of machinery we were looking at, didn’t make sense,” Johnson said during an afternoon meeting at the Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator, a city-funded Arts District entity that aims to nurture fledgling companies. “I ended up doing it in Ohio.”

.... this should become a mayoral race topic on why Los Angeles is a failing city along the coast of "Greece on the Pacific".

Your thoughts ...............
