  • Useless gang rhetoric

    first_imgChatsworth Answer is parents Re “Gangs back in school” (Your Opinions, Feb. 12): As a kid growing up in gang-infested areas of Los Angeles, including Echo Park, I recall that, without exception, the kids who were gang members had a lot in common: single-parent families, unemployed parents, alcoholic parents, domestic abuse at home, living below poverty levels – in addition to zero parental supervision. Most of the guys I knew were out all night drinking, smoking and basically getting into trouble. So the idea that we can seat gangbangers in a classroom is fine, but without daddy and mommy holding the proverbial reins, all is lost, and the cops do the cleanup. – Mike Mathis Canyon Country Assets and expenses Re “Subway to Nowhere II” (Our Opinions, Feb. 8): Sure, we could build a busway like the Orange Line for Wilshire Boulevard, but with what right-of-way property? In fact, the only right of way available in the Westside for any transit use will now be turned into a light-rail line, which the community actively fought for. And how would buses fit in hundreds of thousands of current and future transit passengers on a daily basis? Buses on the Orange Line have enough trouble fitting in merely tens of thousands of passengers. Plus, why not think of the subway as an asset, which can last hundreds of years, and not an expense? Not a year after the Orange Line opening, the pavement is failing, requiring quite an expense to repair. – Bart Reed Executive director The Transit Coalition The ones who count Re “Animal killing on way out, Boks says” (Feb. 4): What a shame this article missed the opportunity to tell the public the truth about pet overpopulation. Rather than L.A. Animal Services Manager Ed Boks and the animal rescuer who stated, “We need to shine the light on ourselves,” indulging in self-aggrandizement, they could and should have given credit and placed responsibility for further decreasing shelter euthanasia on the only ones who can truly make it happen. Ultimately, the only way to assure shelters are not constantly overflowing with homeless, unwanted animals is for owners to spay or neuter their pets and make a lifetime commitment to love, train and keep them. It’s too bad that all the experts quoted in this article failed to make this fundamental point. – Denise A. Justin Los Angeles Fault not in dogs Re “Man poisons dog” (Your Opinions, Feb. 7): Dogs bark because they are unhappy, lonely or bored. Dogs are pack animals, and in their natural state they would prefer to be out wandering with other dogs. People become their packs, so when we put them outside all day alone, they are away from the “den” (inside) and cut off from the pack. Owners need to walk their dogs every single day and keep them indoors with the pack (us) as much as possible. To leave a dog in a backyard for 10 to 12 hours is just cruel. Please find the dog a home where it will be with people. If a dog is misbehaving – i.e., barking nonstop, howling, chewing, digging – it is the owner’s responsibility. The well-exercised, content dog doesn’t do these things. – Terri Markle San Clemente Wasn’t about race Re “`Articulate’ one of many slights” (Local View, Feb. 12): The California Highway Patrol stopped a retired judge and investigated why he was weaving past the solid white line. I, too, was recently stopped by the CHP for speeding. My reaction had nothing to do with race and everything to do with a respectful attitude. I was so appalled at my obvious distraction that I later wrote a letter to the CHP office, thanking the officer for the ticket. More of us should thank these officers for protecting us – sometimes from ourselves. Thank you for stopping us and determining if are we distracted, drunk or having a medical emergency. Thank you for being there. – Wendy A. Robinson Saugus Affordable housing Re “Apartments lost despite directive” (Feb. 12): I’m disappointed but not shocked that city officials are sitting back while more apartments are being turned into condos. As a 23-year-old who soon will be finished with school, No. 1 on my list is how I’m going to afford rent. How am I – or others who are just starting off on their own – expected to make it when we can barely afford a place to live? Affordable rental housing is becoming extinct, and it upsets me that city officials are aware of the issue but choose to do nothing about it. – Atika Enciso North Hollywood Killing CETA program Re “Democrats’ fault” (Your Opinions, Feb. 12): Allan Griffith is pointing his arrow in the wrong direction. As a third-generation Angeleno, I too have seen the spread and escalation of gangs and gang violence. Unlike Griffin, I see a clear line, drawn in 1982 in President Reagan’s first year in office, when his administration eliminated a wonderful program called CETA (the Comprehensive Education and Training Act). It was after the demise of CETA, which gave dropout students skills to get and maintain useful jobs, that the lure of gangs and quick drug profits pulled many of those young citizens, who formerly would have become productive, into their evil fold. From job training to the mean streets. That program elimination was not a product of Democrats. – Prentiss Moore Sherman Oaks Left on Grammy Re “Whistlin’ Dixie” (Feb/12): The Dixie Chicks? What a surprise! I was expecting an honorary Grammy for Hugo Chavez at any moment. If the music/Hollywood establishment moves any further to the left, they will all slip into the Pacific. – Daryl Stewart Chatsworth What did you expect? Re “Whistlin’ Dixie” (Feb. 12): So Fred Shuster thinks that the Dixie Chicks have extracted sweet revenge against George W. Bush and those who criticized them by winning some Grammys. So as Joan Baez introduces the Dixie Chicks and beseeches the listeners to pay close attention to the lyrics of “Not Ready to Make Nice,” who does Fred think the Grammy leftists are going to vote for – Carrie Underwood’s “Jesus Take the Wheel”? – Steve Duhm Woodland Hills Fred’s pickin’ Re “Put your ear up to a Grammy” (U section.

Re “Lawmakers try to stop gang spread” (Feb. 12): I have lived here my entire life and watched gangs go from the White Fence gang to today’s insanity. I have watched our state, local and federal bureaucrats spewing their useless gang rhetoric while at the same time attacking and making illegal the efforts of parents to teach responsibility and apply the discipline necessary for children to become useful adults. We now have two generations of “no consequence” adults. The only significant thing mentioned in this article was the $1 billion that will be pumped into the “gang” problem. You can bank on the billion, and you can bank on its being misspent while the gangs continue to grow. – Patrick Weir last_img

  • Town split in growth battle

    first_imgTOLUCA LAKE – With its white picket fences, delicate rose bushes and budding cherry blossoms, Toluca Lake seems more like a quiet, charming Southern town than a community divided by political strife. But residents are split over plans to build a condominium and apartment complex in this genteel community tucked between Burbank and North Hollywood. And unlike other disputes, where residents find themselves battling deep-pockets developers, this time it’s the homeowners who find themselves flush with cash. “Usually the criticism is, money talks and that citizens don’t have the money,” said Bob Stern, president of the Center for Governmental Studies, a nonpartisan Los Angeles-based nonprofit. “In this case, it’s the other way around.” But the story remains far from over. “I don’t know how (Disney) got away with it,” said Benveniste. “It’s politics. It’s who he is.” Disney did not return phone calls. Sheryl Appleton, a director on the Toluca Lake Chamber of Commerce, said growth is inevitable but should fit a community’s character. Local streets in Toluca Lake, for example, are not designed to handle extra traffic that new developments could bring, she said. “We’re concerned that we will lose the village atmosphere and it will no longer be a pedestrian-friendly community,” Appleton said. “We’re for smart growth, not crazy growth.” A few blocks away, on Talofa Avenue, sits a quaint white-and-brick house with tiny purple flowers sprouting in its windowboxes. Developers have proposed replacing the house with a 45-foot-high building with eight condominium units and underground parking. The project has sparked ire among some nearby homeowners, who have mobilized to fight the plan with protest signs on their lawns and a Web site called The group says the development could draw more traffic to their street, which already is congested because of a grocery store on the corner. “There’s a family value about this neighborhood and this project is not what we signed up for when we moved here,” said resident Mike Teverbaugh. “We want to maintain the character of Toluca Lake.” Los Angeles City Councilman Tom LaBonge has proposed downzoning the parcel to two units no higher than 30 feet, saying it will be more compatible with the area’s existing single-family homes. LaBonge, who has also downzoned similar parcels in Silver Lake, said that as open land becomes more scarce in Los Angeles, it’s a balancing act to fit the remaining lots together. “Generally what we’re seeing in greater Los Angeles is an infill of lots that we never thought would be built on,” LaBonge said. “There’s a constant challenge to make sure development goes in the appropriate space.” Michael Walker, project manager for developer Bella Lily LLC and also a Toluca Lake resident, said the downzoning proposal is unfair. Walker said the developer has already spent about $1.8 million on the project. He said he understands residents’ concerns but said living in a metropolitan area means accepting growth – including traffic. “It’s a major city and people who live in a major city cannot expect to live in a farmlike existence,” Walker said. Daniel Blake, director of the San Fernando Valley Economic Research Center at California State University Northridge, said one solution could be to confine development along public transit routes and leave neighborhoods of single-family homes alone. “I don’t think people in the single-family neighborhoods want to stop the urbanization in the Valley. They just don’t want it in their neighborhood,” Blake said. “You want to be assured that when you buy into the neighborhood that it will stay that way.” While it’s unclear how the Toluca Lake battle will end, community uprisings have a history of packing a powerful political punch. The Sherman Oaks Homeowners Association fought for the Valley’s secession movement in 2002 and played an influential role with Proposition 13, a successful 1978 initiative to cap property tax rates in the state. Meanwhile, homeowners on the wealthier side of Canoga Park aligned in the 1980s and lobbied city officials to rename their section of town Mission Hills. Tom Hogen-Esch, political science professor at California State University, Northridge, said Toluca Lake residents’ efforts mirror the city’s growth and political history. “As the Valley has transformed into an increasingly urban area … you’re going to see more and more of these localized battles,” said Hogen-Esch. “There’s a disconnect between the need for more housing and the question of where that housing will go.” Stern said nearly the only part of Los Angeles not seeing a fight over housing is downtown, where city officials are clamoring for residents to move into roomy lofts inside refurbished banks and office buildings. But it’s different in an area like Toluca Lake, which still conjures images of its former legendary residents Bing Crosby, Fred Astaire and Doris Day and adds a certain elegance to otherwise ordinary addresses. Even around town, locals bicker about where Toluca Lake starts and ends – boundaries that LaBonge’s office said have never been officially defined. Many in town agree, however, that Toluca Lake starts at Riverside Drive and Clybourn Avenue, home to Paty’s Restaurant, a busy diner that has served pancakes and scrambled eggs to the area since 1949. Manager Bob Greene has watched the area around the restaurant grow as fast-food joints and a night club elbowed their way into town. “I think Toluca Lake will always have that small-town feeling, even though it’s in L.A.,” said Greene. Art Anderson, 75, moved to Toluca Lake in 1964 and has seen the area evolve from a series of vacant lots, mom-and-pop gas stations and a drug store into the bustling area it is today. “Somebody who lived here 40 years ago wouldn’t recognize the place,” said Anderson as he scanned a strip mall on Riverside Drive. “But that’s progress – good or bad.” (818)713-3746 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Eighty-year-old Josie Benveniste remains committed to bringing a mixed-use development – apartments stacked on shops – to the block she owns. Envisioned as a legacy and money-making business, Benveniste and her late husband, Chic, hoped to leave it to their children, who today mainly run the family’s Toluca Lake Florist shop at Riverside Drive and Cahuenga Boulevard. But just as the family was about to move forward with construction this year, the effort stalled as Roy Disney, president of the Toluca Lake Chamber of Commerce and the nephew of the legendary Walt Disney, fought to have a 1920s house at the site declared a historic monument. The request was approved last month by the city’s Cultural Heritage Commission, although it will take about two months to work its way through the Los Angeles City Council and become official. With historic status, developers will be unable to raze the home – which could cut in half the number of apartments that could be on the site, Benveniste said. last_img read more
