So instead of panning the commissioners' decisions, he will be sitting there as one of them.

For more than a decade, an abandoned Farrell's Ice Cream parlor has roosted near the corner of Ventura Boulevard and Canoga Avenue. But change is in the works at that intersection. The 110,000-square-foot property, which also was home to a Tune-Up Masters and a pancake house, is now being razed to make way for new businesses. A Whole Foods market and a Burger King are planned for the site, said Larry Cimmarusti, co-owner of Cimm's Inc., which bought the property earlier this year.

The Los Angeles City Council voted Tuesday to allow a Jewish cultural center atop Sepulveda Pass to sell alcohol to visitors, despite opposition from nearby homeowners who fear the action will open the door to commercial development on the Santa Monica Mountains. "This is the piecemeal destruction of the mountain," said Alan Kishbaugh, past president of the Federation of Hillside and Canyon Assns., a homeowner advocacy group that lobbied for 21 years to win protection for the area.
