Week in Review

The plight of pelicans began as the lead story in the Daily Breeze, then became the subject of multimedia reports on KNX 1070 newsradio and the Channel 2/9 TV news.

As expected, funding issues dominated Thursday’s meeting on waterfront redevelopment. Determined to find the money to build something, Port Executive Director Geraldine Knatz told the Daily Breeze, “I'm going to learn how to beg and I’m going to get that money.”

Local students will continue to get hands-on maritime lessons aboard the Angels Gate tugboat, thanks to donations that kept the vessel afloat when funding was jeopardized.

She’s from the government and the Port of Los Angeles High School hopes she’s here to help (with funding). In other words, “San Pedro school uses Rep. Harman’s visit to lobby for funds.”

High-tech safety is the plan as “[a]uthorities boost security at port complex.”

Money and politics had a little fender-bender this week, with the result that “Hahn recuses herself as mediator after shipbuilder’s contributions come to light.”

It was an uncontested election, but the results are in: “Voters overwhelmingly favor Gardena, San Pedro high school reforms.”

Just call this one Ports O’ Potty: “Automated restrooms at Port need user-friendly modifications.”

Janice Hahn for Lt. Gov. -- At City Taxpayer Expense

If you want to know all about Janice Hahn's candidacy for Lieutenant Governor of California, there's an easy way to find out where she stands on the issues, volunteer to help and even donate money -- just go to her official LA City Council website.

If that's not an illegal use of city money and facilities, I don't know what is.
