Board to Antonio: Keep out
The Board of Education told Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa that he can't use Roosevelt High School, or any other LAUSD campus, for the ceremony at which Gov. Schwarzenegger signs AB 1381. Guess they are still mad about that control thing.
New looks at the Council
Three men on the Los Angeles City Council returned from summer break with new facial hair: Alex Padilla, Ed Reyes and Tony Cardenas. (Not Jack Weiss; he had the start on a goatee when I saw him two weeks ago but apparently lost it before yesterday's council session.) Council President Eric Garcetti sports a shorter haircut from his Naval Reserve service. Daily News covers the style side.
Measure R language stands
The ballot prop language doesn't have to specify that it will lengthen term limits, the court of appeal rules.
AFTER THE JUMP: LAT blog skips Arnold tape issue, why to avoid LAX on Sept. 28, the LG15 film project, hotties of L.A. restaurants and much more.
Guess it's not a hot topic
The Angelides campaign was forced to explain yesterday how it got the Schwarzenegger tape, there are stories today in the LAT and elsewhere, and yet the topic hasn't been followed at all this week on the new Times politics blog. The blog writer, Bob Salladay, also wrote the piece disclosing the tape last week. Meanwhile, Times columnist Erin Aubry Kaplan says the governor is getting off too easy.
Green Line envy
Villaraigosa and Rep. Jane Harman chatted yesterday about the Green Line being connected to LAX, but the mayor made no commitments and stressed that the Red Line to Santa Monica is still his top transit priority.
Avoid LAX on Sept. 28
Hotel workers are planning a major labor march to close down Century Boulevard at rush hour. Organizers bill it as the "largest civil disobedience in the history of Los Angeles."
Cardenas fined by ethics commission
Councilman Tony Cardenas has to pay $3,500 for accepting seven contributions above the $500 limit.
Yeah, Lonelygirl15 was a film project
Not a studio but three indie friends trying to break in. They talk to Richard Rushfield and Claire Hoffman of the LAT. "Bree" appears to be an aspiring actress from New Zealand who lives in L.A. and got the gig via audition.
