Amanda Bynes' arrest in New York could spell trouble for the TV star back in Los Angeles, where she has had several run-ins with the law and is currently on probation. Last year, she pleaded no contest to driving with a suspended license in a case filed by the Los Angeles city attorney. She was placed on three years informal probation and a second charge was dismissed. The Los Angeles district attorney's office has filed a driving under the influence case against her for an incident last year in which she allegedly hit a Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department cruiser in West Hollywood.

This is one part of Silver Lake that has no lake view. In fact, the only views are from atop a corkscrew drive that looks out over a pair of freeways, the 5 and the 2. Residents, however, see this 10.2-acre stretch of undeveloped land - along Riverside Drive to the east and Corralitas Drive to the south - as a sanctuary. They also want to keep it that way. "For all the neighbors around here this is paradise," said longtime resident Russell Bates, standing in a meadow on what residents call the Corralitas Red Car property.

I explained in an earlier post that if Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa leaves office early to become, say, U.S. secretary of Transportation, the acting mayor would be the City Council president. And right now, that's Herb Wesson Jr. If I had been paying attention, I would have noticed the post by Alice Walton on the KPCC news site that reports that Wesson is recovering from a serious fall at his home that sent him to the emergency room and required stitches. I wish him a quick and full recovery.

The last time City Councilman Tom LaBonge ran for office, he won 100% of the vote. That was 2007, and LaBonge ran unopposed. This time, he faces challenges from two political newcomers who have amassed nearly $94,000 to his $174,000 in their effort to oust him. LaBonge, who has been on the council 10 years, sat between his opponents at a packed candidate forum on a recent night in Silver Lake. He stared straight ahead, unblinking, as they took turns slamming him as an insider politician who has spent too long at City Hall.

A Los Feliz man seeking a seat on the Los Angeles City Council accused Councilman Tom LaBonge this week of mishandling a request to put a yellow ribbon on the Hollywood sign in time for Veterans Day. Apartment owner Tomas O'Grady said LaBonge unfairly turned down a proposal by David Weiss, a former Marine who lives in Newport Beach, to install the ribbon display at a cost of $11,000 to honor U.S. veterans. Veterans Day was Thursday. Standing with a small group of people holding signs that said "Yellow Ribbon vs. Red Tape," O'Grady said the rejection of the request showed how difficult it is for businesses and other individuals to get a fair hearing from City Hall.
