It has worked in the movies a few times, so Henry J. Webb apparently thought it would work at the Pacific Division jail in Venice where he was being held on suspicion of possessing cocaine.

Councilwoman Joan Milke Flores said none of the 19 city pools targeted for the eight-week, $27,708 program was located either in Watts or Wilmington, which are in her district.

Forgotten in all the rhetoric about the need for a better and improved Los Angeles Coliseum to attract a football team and future Super Bowls is the fact that Exposition Park offers the only green space and recreation facilities to hundreds of thousands of residents in the immediate area. For too long the recreation needs of the residents have been held hostage by the plans for the Coliseum. It is time that city officials and the private sector work together to return Exposition Park to the people.
