15,000 bicyclist and millions of motorists. Does the minority here count? Yes, bicyclist countRead More up to a point. Moving traffic is a priority over anything else. No removal of car lanes!!

This is just the City Council's graft soldiers gaming the system. They want to artificially up theirRead More bike vs. motorist percentage with this new count. The last one they did on a holiday weekend during construction. It's sickening. How much you being paid to put the word out for this charade Ajay? We know that a non-profit group has spent nearly 3 million pushing an anti-car movement from out of state, including paying online bloggers to push their agenda so that the city can rake in $65,000 a mile to remove vehicle lanes for bike lanes on our busiest streets. How much are they paying YOU Ajay? Hart D. Fisher

The bike extremelist have more plans than just that. Check with your auto insurance company.Read More Most are now giving some kind of new discount that measures how much you drive. Drive less and you save. Yes, there are some people that qualify that do not drive because they are retired or for other reasons and that is fine. But for the rest it is a way of trying to control your driving and the bicyclist agenda is there. Most people need to drive and they need to drive a lot. There is no changing that no matter what bicyclist extremist try to do.

whatever. I've been on community boards before. Move to have the inappropriate remarks eliminatedRead More from the record; apologize to the offended folks; move on to work on projects of mutual benefit. I'm a trained community mediator, and find this awkward conflagration a symptom of bad communication. I'd be glad to help (without compensation) so that we may have the Native museum restored and maintained.

I'm sure there's a lot more to Mr Wright's statement and it is not in context. As we all know, thoseRead More in opposition to good works will always pick up on the smallest comment and blow it up out of proportion. From what I've heard, the MWA isn't that interested in helping save the Southwest Museum. So who's side are they really on?

We thought this was resolved... have issued a response letter to MWA Board. It is on our Friends ofRead More the Southwest Museum facebook page or on ASNCAlert: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ASNCAlert/message/29316

Try contacting http://www.hopeforpaws.org/. They helped a stray blind dog named "Fiona"Read More obtain surgery. The video is viral. The organization had been featured on many shows and news outlets. They are local. They also helped me with a little dog I fostered who was rescued just 2 days prior to euthanasia. It turned out he had Kennel Cough which developed into Pneumonia. He had to be isolated and treated for days. High vet bills resulted. Owner Eldahd stepped in. His organization paid all bills. The pup made it and is a happy boy!

what about creating a chip in fund, and hopefully people here can send money. create a request forRead More donations here, rescue grps use this now. http://www.youcaring.com/ or have donations called into the vet that has been treating Buster. also are you planning to keep him ? if not there are some rescue grp that you can post to network for a home, once he's better. good luck

sorry I missed the last part of the post some how, I see many things I suggested done. ! maybe youRead More can call Actor and Others too. Can the dog get pins in the leg ? rather then removing the leg ? maybe can look into the Amanda foundation too.

Kid in Cypress Park and Highland Park need an edible garden more than those in Mt. Washington.
Nina Zippay June 15, 2013 at 03:09 pm
Every kid needs an edible garden. It is a not a matter of who needs it more or less. Contact me ifRead More you want to do something about it.
nonoise June 16, 2013 at 07:10 am
A priority is with who needs it. There are poor kids that go hungry. For them it is not a matterRead More of the experience. It is a matter of having some food. The way the community has treated me, I would I want to do anything about it? Racism is a alive and well in Cypress Park.

Usually I feel sluggish after a pancake breakfast but not this time. I was energized by the goodRead More food, good people and the all-aroud good vibes.

The best "pet store" would be one of the local animal shelters.
lezle stein July 1, 2012 at 04:28 pm
Please only allow Pet Stores who "sell" dogs from the shelter. Please don't allow puppyRead More mill dog stores. PLEASE!

Last year, I paddled the two-mile stretch of the L.A. River (Balboa to Sepulveda) that has been leftRead More completely natural. It was an amazing experience and I really hope that the concrete is removed from the Glendale Narrows; it would so improve quality of life in NELA. A recent trip to Seattle made me realize that we're squandering an amazing natural resource.

I have a signed copy of Smith's God and Mr Gomez but I've never seen their home. Sounds like fun. DoRead More you get a lot of fellow travelers on this hike?
Andy Serrano May 6, 2012 at 03:20 am
I've looked everywhere on the web and have been unable to find an actual map of the hike.

The progressive dinner organizers did an amazing job and party-giving parents were definitelyRead More "hosts with the most!" Cheers indeed.
Kim Axelrod Ohanneson April 1, 2012 at 06:07 pm
Anna, your comment and participation exemplify the organizers' successful attempt to reach outRead More beyond the school and parent body and into the greater Mount Washington community. The food and drink were wonderful but it was really great to meet the hosts and the other guests.

Thank YOU, Anna, for reading!
