Given the sweltering heat, it was not meant to be a walk for pleasure, as activists trekked from El Escorpion Park to Pierce College in Woodland Hills Saturday. The goal was for them to smell the exhaust of cars, notice the narrowness of sidewalks and observe firsthand how Los Angeles is the most "park poor" major American city, said Susan Suntree, co-director of the Santa Monica-based group Earth, Water, Air, Los Angeles, or EWALA.

Los Angeles enjoyed another banner year for tourism in 2012, when it welcomed 41.4 million visitors, surpassing the record set in 2011. Last year's tourist total represents a 2.5% increase over the 40.4 million visitors in 2011 -- good news for the city's $16.5-billion tourism industry, according to the Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board. Tourism is one of the region's largest industries, supporting 372,000 jobs in Los Angeles County. "Los Angeles County's leisure and hospitality industry is one of the few that has regained all of the jobs and surpassed those positions lost in the recession," said Kimberly Ritter-Martinez, an associate economist for the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corp.

Demonstrators chose that branch of Washington Mutual because of its proximity to the planned residential project in Ventura County.

This could not be further from the truth. Although similar in land area, the two projects differ in almost every other aspect: Ahmanson Ranch would urbanize 1,885 acres while Newhall Ranch would urbanize 6,111 acres.
