What has D.O.N.E. done?

Someone asked me that question today. That was a profound question.
Why? What did D.O.N.E. Do? Tip: answer questions with another question it confuses the heck out of people.

We were talking about Training, and how many Neighborhood Councils have been around for years trying to come up with the same answers.

D.O.N.E needs to train or encourage the sharing of information between Councils.
Let us use The STNC Education Position as an example.

What? Your N.C. doesn't have anyone representing your children? With the LAUSD / School Crisis, The N.C.s are in the best postion to help! Local School Accountability is the Key to fixing the schools. Many are out of control.

Unfortunately, problems aren't going to fix themselves. Students are not only Stakeholders in the Community, They are the Future!

Keep checking the Blog and we will help you along the path, to develop systems like the ones we are using.

Update us with the things that are working in your Community.

We are all here for the same purpose, to make things better!

STNC Education Rep.

New Blog and Website for LA City Issues: LACityUpdate.com

With national presidential elections taking over a lot of local media coverage, time to fire up a new website and blog to cover all the local neighborhood council/community issues that affect your community. Go to http://lacityupdate.com to check it out. It links to this companion blog, http://ladailyblog.com. (Formerly Neighborhood Council Blogspot.)

Here are some things sent to my inbox. A lot of the stuff blogged here will be from the emails people send me. And if you go to the website (http://lacityupdate.com), I put together some links to the news stories I liked from other sites.

Court Rules on Blogger's Individual Rights: Where plaintiff served subpoena on Internet service provider seeking disclosure of identify of anonymous poster on financial message board who made allegedly defamatory comments about her, trial court erred in refusing to quash subpoena because online messages--while offensive and demeaning to plaintiff--did not constitute assertions of actual fact, and plaintiff therefore could not state a viable cause of action that overcame defendant’s First Amendment right to speak anonymously on Internet.

JUST WHAT IS NEEDED IN PICO RIVERA; AN EXPENSIVE SECOND ASSISTANT MANAGER: The city has hired a second assistant city manager to ease staff workloads and to provide new expertise during new development projects, City Manager Chuck Fuentes said.

According to Fuentes, Jeff Prang, mayor pro tem for West Hollywood and special public affairs assistant to Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca, brings new skills to the city's management staff.

"We're looking forward to getting lots of good service out of him," Fuentes said.

Prang, 45, will be paid an annual salary of $136,716 for his services to the city, the entry-level salary for an assistant city manager. While Fuentes and Assistant City Manager Debbie Lopez say they believe Prang will be worth the extra cost to the city and that his services are necessary, some say the city does not need a second assistant city manager.

"I don't see a need for a second city manager," Councilman David Armenta said. "When you have a lot of construction, when we're building, you have a need. But the developments are pretty much coming to an end."

City of Los Angeles Faces $600-$700 Million Budget Deficit Despite New Prop S Tax




Hey Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Zuma Dogg's Batcomputer just crunched the City of Los Angeles' budget and it came up short $600-$700 million -- even with the new Prop S money.

Hope the City's bond rating doesn't drop over this. (Especially with the bond insurance crisis!)

Hey Laura Chick, perhaps an audit? Or, get Karen Sisson (Cheif Administrative Office) on the phone, Antonio. (She must know this already, if ZD's Batcomputer knows.)

LACER PENSION FUND ALERT:
I hope LACER wasn't over-extended in risky investments tied to construction companies who are now stuck with a bunch of vacant housing units that are sinking in value as I type this. (Plus, whatever other investments I hope they didn't have, that I hope didn't take a huge hit in January.)

I hope the State doesn't have to end up bailing out these pension funds, since the bond insurers are having problems of their own; and the people planning on this retirement money will be outraged that all of this has been going on if this has happened. The party is over for all these risky financial deals, like subprimes and whatnot.
