Los Angeles Summer of Learning comes to the West Side

Posted by Susan von Seggern on July 17, 2014 at 2:37pm 0 Comments

Mayor Eric Garcetti, in partnership with Los Angeles Unified School District Superintendent John Deasy, JPMorgan Chase & Co., The California Endowment, and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, have launched of the Los Angeles Summer of Learning program, a citywide initiative to keep youth engaged in learning this summer. 



Los Angeles youth age 3 - 24 can access 100 valuable learning opportunities online and in person at City parks and libraries, LAUSD schools, and with museums and cultural institutions like the Getty Center and Aquarium of the Pacific.  The curriculum will offer robust options in science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (S.T.E.A.M.), as well as a work-readiness pathway geared towards the skills needed to succeed in the modern economy.

“LA Summer of Learning will transform Los Angeles into a 500-square-mile campus and provide learning opportunities for our youth when school is not in session,” said Mayor Garcetti. “By connecting our students with creative, interactive and interest-driven learning opportunities, we will help our city’s youth learn new skills and prepare to enter the workforce.”

Upcoming learning opportunities in the Rancho Park area include Documentary Film at Venice Arts, the Getty Center Art Detective Badge program and the family Sundays program at LACMA.  

“Learning happens everywhere, not only in the classroom,” LAUSD Superintendent John Deasy said. “More than half of the achievement gap between lower- and higher-income youth is due to unequal access to summer learning opportunities. Thanks to the tremendous collaboration of our community partners, businesses, neighborhoods and city agencies, LA Summer of Learning will help increase access for youth, particularly in underserved neighborhoods. Together, we will make learning more visible to participants, parents, teachers, academic institutions, and potential employers.”

Rancho Park's Best Spot for Fireworks

Posted by Orli Belman on July 2, 2014 at 7:45pm 0 Comments

Head to Cheviot Hills Park on this Fourth of July to for a low-key, crowd-free celebration courtesy of the Hillcrest Country Club. You may have to be a member to golf there but the club's annual fireworks display lights up the Rancho Park sky for all to see. The best seats in the house are free - across the street at Cheviot Hills Park on Motor Ave, just south of Pico.

The fireworks begin at 9:00 pm but the fun starts earlier. You can bring picnics, blankets, sports equipment and your family and friends and enjoy the park before dark.

President Obama to Visit West Los Angeles

Posted by Orli Belman on May 6, 2014 at 4:28pm 0 Comments

May 7, 2014 - LAX & Bel Air

The President will likely arrive to LAX late morning or early afternoon before attending a function at a private

home in Bel Air, he will either travel by helicopter to an area on the west side to meet up with his motorcade

or could motorcade from LAX to Bel Air.
In either case we can expect west side traffic to be affected in and around the 405 and 10 freeway intersection,

including all surface streets in the area. Wilshire Blvd. and Sunset Blvd. could be heavily impacted.
At the conclusion of the event, it is believed the President will travel directly from Bel Air to Century City.

While these two destinations are relatively close to each other, there is the potential for severe traffic

issues on the west side during that time. The exact time of travel has not been determined.…

Westside Town Hall Budget Meeting - Engaging, Informative, and Inspiring

Posted by Adrienne Luce on February 27, 2014 at 10:00pm 0 Comments

More than 200 people packed the Mar Vista Community Center last night for Mayor Garcetti's Budget Town Hall meeting. Daniel Tamm who represents Mayor Garcetti on the Westside (and was the Regional Field Director for Obama) introduced Deputy Mayor Rick Cole (who happens to be the former Mayor of Pasadena, and former City Manager of Ventura and Azusa) who gave a very informative presentation on the City of LA budget. Rick started out by saying, that there are two words to keep in mind when thinking about the City of LA budget:

1. The news is sobering
2. Solutions must be collaborative

Even though the State of CA may have surpluses and seems to have recovered, the City of LA is still facing a shortfall and is very much in recovery mode. 
The $242 million shortfall actually represents only about 5% of the total City of LA budget.
He explained that the two biggest sources of city revenue are sales tax and property tax. Property taxes do not rise significantly and internet sales have impacted retail on the local level. 


Two additional challenges that the City faces are:

1. Pension costs - The City will be paying to restore lost pension money during the Great Recession over the next 30 years

2. Salaries are going up this December after a 3 yr. freeze on raises for city workers



Another challenge is that the city has already made cuts so there is not a lot of fat left to trim. For example the city has already have reduced its…

Top Sawtelle Restaurants According to the Los Angeles Times

Posted by Orli Belman on January 9, 2014 at 12:03pm 0 Comments

We've been spending a lot of time on Sawtelle Blvd recently. It's walking distance, buzzing at night and emerging as one of LA's best dining streets. I still have yet to get a table at the no-take out Tsujita or the Tsujita Annex. And judging by where they rank on this Los Angeles Times list, it will probably be even more difficult.

Sawtelle question of the day...Brian's Shave Ice or Blockheads?
