Inspired by "LAT in 90 Seconds" over at Fishbowl LA, the Newbie covers the coverage in one of our local newspapers, the Los Feliz Ledger, which includes exactly one-third of Atwater Village. From the July 2006 issue:
Terse phone call of the month: In corrections and amplifications, "we were remiss in not mentioning the many volunteers from the Silver Lake Improvement Association that originally started the event [Beautification Day]."
It's the cops or the dumpster, kid: In this month's safety tip from Officer Chovan, "I recently overheard parents telling their child that if she didn't stop crying, the police would take her away... I had to stop that parent from making a terrible mistake."
Ice cream for restaurant reviews: Cold Stone Creamery: Not "on par" but "fun for the kids." Palazzo Gelato: "Translates to 'darn good ice cream'." Zanzabelle: "Eight foot giraffe." Svelte: "Good news for you Atkinians."
