It is the crossroads of southeast Los Angeles County's public transportation network. Crisscrossed by a dozen bus lines, Huntington Park's downtown serves as a hub for thousands of daily bus riders.

Nobody is checking over election results today closer than Huntington Park tailor Nick Ioannidis. The reason? Depending upon the winners and losers, Ioannidis may face a major redecorating job at his East Gage Avenue shop. Its walls are lined with framed and often-autographed photos--not of the ubiquitous Hollywood celebrity--but of politicians.

A group of central business district merchants said they will sue the city if it approves plans for a retail store with as many as 35 tenants at the closed J.J. Newberry building. "It will kill all the business in Huntington Park," said Mary Carmen Medrano, who owns 25-year-old Medrano Jewelers, next to the site on Pacific Boulevard. "The people working in the swap meet sell very cheap merchandise for nothing. While they're there, they'll ruin the other merchants."
