Responding to complaints by residents, state and local law enforcement officials Wednesday posted license-revocation notices at two East Los Angeles bars, one of which was the site of two slayings during the past five years. "When I walked by on my way to McDonald's at night I saw people [urinating] in front and drunk old men fighting in the parking lot," said resident Raquel Rodriquez, while walking by one of the bars, the Beehive.

After years on the nightclub circuit, singer-songwriter Mark Wood believed he had found an ideal site to settle down and open his own restaurant with entertainment--at the former building of a famous eatery within Cannery Village.

No new licenses have been approved since the City Council unanimously approved a moratorium last July. On Monday, the council voted for the year's extension. The city staff, requesting more direction from council members, has now prepared a preliminary report listing several possible regulations.

Art Rodriguez IV is one resourceful guy. After a jury last year convicted Soon Ja Du on manslaughter charges for shooting 15-year-old Latasha Harlins, Rodriquez put in a call to the beleaguered liquor store owner. State law, he told her, forbids convicted criminals from holding liquor licenses. Just like that, the smooth-talking former Bible salesman purchased the small pink certificate that gave Du the right to sell alcoholic beverages.

Unfortunately, they are doing it by sacrificing various environmental protections and limiting public participation.
