Week in Review

Neighbors are steamed over the unannounced installation of cell phone towers near Taper Avenue Elementary School. Turns out, the cell phone companies don’t need to ask or tell before adding onto existing poles. Here’s the Daily Breeze story and here’s a Channel 2/9 TV news segment. A few days later, “Hahn asks LA council to reconsider cell tower policy.” More here in Hahn’s press release on the subject.

Extra! Extra! “San Pedro citizens panel gives Port of LA its plan for Knoll Hill,” but the devil is still in the (monetary) details.

The new L.A. police chief, Charlie Beck, held a meet and greet at Peck Park Thursday. Following an introduction by Councilwoman Janice Hahn, Beck spoke briefly then opened the floor to questions, which were few.

“Multicultural Man,” nude figure of peace and life-like anatomy, will be permanently displayed on the waterfront.

Funded by the city of L.A. Community Redevelopment Agency, the San Pedro Arts, Entertainment and Culture District has awarded grants to local artists. The grants are the first disbursements of the $500,000 budget allocated for artistic projects that add economic and cultural value to the neighborhood. So, who got funding? Read the names in the Daily Breeze news brief.
