A reader NEEDS a writer!
Story by Beth Day from West Finley, PA - 4/1/2006
Hi. My name is Beth. I live in rural Pennsylvania (pretty far from LA!) Before I comment on any story, I'd like to say that I am, by no means, qualified to critique anyone's writing ability but I do qualify for the first criteria of any writer's tatget audience--
1. I am a reader!
I have found some very interesting stoties, tributes,poems & even announcements here. I am here to read about your city, whether you have lived there for sixty years or just stepped off of the bus....
Story by Michael McGinnis from Hollywood, CA - 11/22/2005
As I look around and see the stars. Encounter various interesting situations in my encounters each day with the Famous and the successfull and the wealthy in the Hollywood Entertainent and Music Circles.
I surround myself with such oppulent luxury enjoying time in Malibu, Santa Monica and Beverly Hills.
I drive the best. I dine at the best and I live, work, breathe and do the best.
I looked out into the eye of the sun shining down on the Pacific Ocean, glistening off t...
THE BIG DEAL IN GLENDALE
Story by Lela Michael from Glendale, CA - 8/20/2005
“8/17/2005 9:50 PM - LA Daily News GLENDALE - A gunman robbed the Glendale branch of the Bank of Orange County and fled Wednesday, prompting police to lock down a nearby elementary school as they searched for him.”
I spend a lot of time with a hard-boiled L.A. journalist who writes a daily blog, primarily about L.A. crime. R broke the school lockdown story shortly after the robbery went down.
R posted updates on his blog throughout the afternoon. We watched events unfold first...
A lil Something About This Place...
Story by Rudy Joe L.F. from Echo Park District, CA - 11/15/2003
From the old motor boats with their lil red/green marine lights slowly cruising along on the lake.....To the Old Pioneer Market with its red/brown bricks, the '52 beige chevy's with chasing neon outlines showing the way to the parking lot behind the building and inside with its narrow isleways.
I have seen the neon signs up on the City Walk at Universal. It was nice to see them doing what i always remembered besides other old familiar signs that were saved and now be...
A Easter Sunday With Beautiful Rich Cultures
Story by Rudy Joe from Echo Park, Los Angeles, CA - 8/19/2003
I live fairly close to this park thats between Echo Park and Dodger Stadium. I have spent many many many days there when it was somewhat different back in the day. It also did get its moderate share of families picnicing and all but the majority were mostly lots and lots of lowriders and its crowd. Things always got out of hand too so eventually the parks main stretch was cut off and turned into another area of the park. The "Oneway" just passed the Police Academy was also just resently par...
Story by Cherie Magnus from Los Angeles, CA - 5/9/2003
We called the building Chateau Rodney, even though the architecture was not the least bit French. It was a typical Los Angeles of the ‘20s apartment building, pseudo Spanish—Monterrey style with wooden balconies around a U shaped courtyard, arches, tiled roof, and stained glass windows. Rodney is the name of the street on which we lived in the Los Feliz district; Los Feliz is pseudo Spanish for “the happy ones.”
What a stroke of luck and weeks of hard wo...
