Ahhhhh rain. We need it so badly, but it comes with a price. No good deed goes unpunished as they say… so when the rains come and bubble up all the sun-parched asphalt… Los Angeles roads burp up an insane amount of new potholes. So what happens if your car is damaged by a pothole after you spent all that money lowering it, and putting stupid low profile but high performance tires on your dumb Civic, and the coffee can exhaust? Well, if it happened in the City of Los Angeles… here is the link to the online form to (attempt) to make a claim: https://claims.lacity.org/Home/BasicClaim and if it is on the freeway, CalTrans may, or may not have your back with their form here: http://www.dot.ca.gov/damageclaims.html .
Good luck with that.

This Sunday join others in the Westchester community for a neighborhood expo showcasing opportunities for all ages! Services, sports, education, entertainment, volunteer opportunities and more! 1 Day & 1 Place to discover how to help yourself and your community!
BadgeOfHeart.org will have a booth, where you can meet a law enforcement initiative developed by one of your own local officers that is making a tremendous difference in our community. That might sound generic and boring, but one officer, one of YOUR officers started a non-profit for YOUR community… and if you know of a neighbor or family in need… you can visit BadgeOfHeart.org , tell their story and take steps towards rallying support that could make a huge difference in the life of a person or family in need. Read some of the stories. An amazing testament to what giving can do.
Sunday January 29th 1p.m. – 6 p.m.
Covenant Presbyterian Church
6323 West 80th St in Westchester
This is a free event, and even if you stop by for 15 minutes I guarantee you, you will learn something new and at worst, be smiled at. Can’t make that guarantee for anywhere else in the hood that day. Save an alert and stop by!
The LAPD Santa’s sleigh has already made the rounds through our local neighborhoods. A lovely tradition that goes a long way in working to make a positive impression on kids in the community. Acosta. I never knew. 🙂
Saturday is the Annual Christmas Run – and if you park your car Friday night on Pacific or part of Venice (see map) your car will be towed as of the wee wee hours Saturday morning. Tell your newb neighbors (or not) – signs don’t elaborate on the impending parking doom. The run is awesome though. Not the running part – but the costumes.
Two nights ago Santa Monica PD requested LAPD to respond to 1548 5th St., a low income housing facility – where a male suffering from what are assumed to be gunshot wounds died at the scene. That call came out about 2:30 a.m. Before he died it was determined that the crime happened in Venice, possibly Oakwood. I had several messages that day regarding a number of incidents – which is typical. People see police or hear something, gunshots … screaming…airships… and they want to know what is going on. If you heard gunshots or a crazy fight Tues night / Wed am around midnight to 1 a.m. – LAPD would love to know. Right now I have no info on victim or the rest of the crime. Will try to follow up – but like the other homicide last week on Windward where the suspect lived in our hood – details are few and far between until an arrest is made. This is why it is important that if you see something, say something. Solving a murder can sometimes boil down to an obscure tip.
The most enlightening, informative and valuable learning experience I have had as an adult has been getting to know our local LAPD and the Community Police Advisory Board. They have a meeting once per month. Although it has formal protocol as most serious meetings do… it is full of neighbors and the police that patrol our streets, and the command staff that guides them. Sometimes dry? Yes. Always informative? YES!
If you can spend a few hours on a Wednesday once per month at 7 p.m. you will learn a lot about why some things happen and some don’t when it comes to keeping our community safe… and the KEY part to this is the community… which includes you. Tonight is a great time to meet the folks who go, learn about what is coming up for 2017, and the nitty gritty on the LAPD Thanksgiving Potluck dinner.
If you can… go. It is worth it. Info below:
Tonight’s our annual end of year potluck and election of CPAB Officers!
Come for the food stay for the opportunity to help Pacific CPAB move forward and achieve greater things for our communities!
