A Safe Place For Kids To Play

From Brentwood Community Council President, Larry Watts:

Parks Video

As many of you know, I’ve been very active over the past several years helping People for Parks open Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) school yards in economically deprived and park poor neighborhoods of the city. We want kids to have a safe place to play during after school hours and on weekends. There are two basic parts to getting schools open. First, reaching out to the LAUSD and convincing them that a particular school is ready to open as a Community School Park. This might seem to be a no-brainer, but as we know from our experience at Brentwood Green, often some administrators, while paying lip service to the concept, seem to think of reasons not to do this. Fortunately, as more and more school principals experience the benefits of a Community School Park, we have been able to convince district officials to go along. The attached video is of Rosa Trujillo, principal of Barendo Middle School. She is really behind the CSP concept and makes our job easier. But we still must spend a great deal of time selling many administrators on the benefits of CSP’s not only to the kids and families who use them, but to LAUSD itself from the goodwill they generate.

Once we succeed in convincing the district that a school should be opened, it’s up to us to raise the money to actually open a Community School Park. This is the part where you can help us. We are a very small organization trying to accomplish a lot. But the good news is that even relatively small amounts money can accomplish incredible results. Our current goal of raising $24,000 over the next thirty days will enable us to open two more Community School Parks before the end of 2015, in the Pico-Union neighborhood of Los Angeles: Berendo Middle School and Leo Politi Elementary School.  These are schools located in high-density neighborhoods, whose families and communities are eager to access their school playgrounds and gardens on Saturdays, as this is the only opportunity their children have for safe outdoor play.

We’ve just started our late summer/fall fund drive.  We’ve partnered with the National Recreation and Park Association and are hopeful this will broaden our outreach.  Even small donations mean a lot as more people participate.. Thanks, Larry

Boxer, Feinstein and Lieu back plan to move homeless vets to VA campus

[Excerpt from LA Times]

California’s two U.S. senators will propose legislation Thursday that would move some of the thousands of veterans living in makeshift encampments across the region into housing at the Department of Veterans Affairs’ campus in West Los Angeles.

The move comes as Southern California is seeing an increase in the homeless population in downtown Los Angeles and other parts of the region. A count released earlier this year by the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority found a 12% jumpin the overall homeless ranks and a 6% rise among homeless veterans.

In a letter to the House and Senate Veterans Affairs committees, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) and Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Torrance) said the legislation would grant the VA the authority to enter into leases with local governments and nonprofit groups to provide veterans with shelter supplemented by medical and other services.

One of the Strangest Westside Stories…Ever

Here’s the headline:

Dead Man Found With 1,200 Guns Claimed To Have Been Secret Alien Agent

[Excerpt from]

In an X-Files-worthy twist, the man found dead last week with a massive hoard of weaponsclaimed to be an alien/human hybrid working with a secret government agency.

The decomposing body of Jeffery Lash was found along with a stash of over 1,200 guns in his Pacific Palisades home on July 17. And now it’s been discovered that Lash’s fiancée, Catherine Nebron, and Nebron’s employee Dawn VadBunker, reportedly believed Lash to be an alien savior working an unnamed government agencies, according to KTLA. Vadbunker was also reported missing until last week when she was located in Oregon.

Nebron and VadBunker reportedly left Lash’s body in the SUV after he collapsed in the parking lot of a Bristol Farms in Santa Monica on July 4. Nebron didn’t report the death to authorities because she believed that the secret agencies he worked for would come to collect him. She then left for Oregon with VadBunker. VadBunker’s mother tells KTLA that her daughter, who has still not returned from Oregon, was convinced that Lash was not entirely human: “He [said he] was part alien and part human and was out to save the world.”
