Ballona Wetlands Restoration I write in support of the certified EIR and preferred alternative for restoration of the Ballona Wetlands. The wetlands need all the help they can get, and Los Angeles needs the wetlands for all the things wetlands do for us: serve as nurseries for fish and wildlife, protect from floods, allow us to interact (respectfully) with the natural environment, and prepare future human generations to become stewards of the planet.

Opinion: Christmas Dream for Main Street  

The busy thoroughfare can safely thrive during the pandemic By Tim Tunks We walked down Ashland Avenue and beheld a wondrous attraction as we turned up Main Street. Festooned with overhead light bulbs, the wide center corridor was an open walkway with plenty of room for a safe, socially distanced stroll. It was mostly families and couples populating the wide path with a few walking their bikes and scooters. The store windows were brightly lit with holiday displays. The legion of cement K-rails had been called away to other duty, although a few of the ones painted with murals...
