The Los Angeles City Council on Friday rejected a second attempt to appoint Jackie Goldberg's former chief of staff to serve out the remainder of the ex-councilwoman's term. City lawmakers said Friday that they would prefer to appoint whoever wins in the upcoming election to finish out the last few months of Goldberg's term, which expires June 30. If there is no clear winner in the April 10 election, council members said, they will appoint the winner of the June 5 runoff.

The Los Angeles City Council delayed a decision Tuesday on whether to appoint Jackie Goldberg's former chief of staff to serve out the remaining five months of the ex-councilwoman's term. The council refused to consider a motion to name Sharon Delugach to the 13th District and sent the matter to committee for review. Goldberg vacated the seat in December, after she was elected to the state Assembly. Councilman Hal Bernson said the council should leave the matter up to the voters.

The American Civil Liberties Union filed a suit Monday in federal court, arguing that residents of the 13th Council District have been deprived of representation by the City Council's refusal to fill the seat. "Our nation was founded on the principle that taxation without representation is unjust," said Dan Tokaji, staff attorney with the ACLU of Southern California. "But that's exactly what's happening to over 250,000 residents of this city."

Voter registration drives are wrapping up in South-Central Los Angeles, and community workers say the effort has been a hard sell among some Latinos and African-Americans who say they feel powerless to affect change through traditional means such as voting. "People are apathetic and disillusioned," said Connie Watson, program director for People Who Care, a South-Central community service group that is helping register voters. "They don't see how voting is going to make a difference."

Bowing to complaints from Granada Hills neighbors of a police firing range, the Los Angeles City Council on Friday voted to spend $100,000 to better soundproof the facility. The money will be used to install sound-reducing panels at the three partially enclosed firing ranges at the Edward Davis Emergency Vehicle Operations Center Firearms/Tactics Training Facility, which opened in 1998 on 44 acres at the base of the Van Norman Bypass Reservoir.

The growing debate over a proposal to boost wages and benefits for some bottom-rung workers in Los Angeles heated up on two fronts Wednesday: Opponents of a proposed "living wage" ordinance released their cost analysis, while proponents chose an offbeat round of holiday "caroling" to rally support.

You have to admire Mayor Riordan as a guy who welcomes a diversity of opinion. In the reception area of his office there's a giant photo that shows a smiling Riordan at the start of a bicycle race with a couple hundred other pedalers suitably attired in helmet, tight pants, etc. Most of the competitors are waving in a friendly manner to the camera, with the exception of one black-bearded bicyclist off to the side. This scruffy fellow is giving a one-fingered salute.
