  • Issue: Bathing topless at Venice Beach

    Martha Groves

    Date: Apr 24, 2015

    Forty years ago, a cadre of Venice Beach sunbathers routinely basked in the altogether. 

    The Venice Neighborhood Council thinks the time is ripe to take a half-step back to that time of physical freedom. In a 12-2 vote Tuesday, the council said it "supports women being afforded the same rights as men to sunbathe topless." 

    There are so many more important things to be concerned about in Venice...this makes us look foolish. 

    The city and county of Los Angeles prohibit nude or topless sunbathing. But Melissa Diner, the Venice council community officer who sponsored the resolution, said the panel would draft letters to Councilman Mike Bonin, Mayor Eric Garcetti and the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, which has jurisdiction over the beach, calling for Venice to be exempted.  (Read the rest.)

Passing the Buck

The Buck Stops Here

Most men in the early west carried a jack knife made by the Buck Knife Company.  When playing poker, it was common to place one of these Buck Knives in front of the dealer so that everyone knew who he was.  When it was time for a new dealer, the deck of cards and the knife were given to the new dealer.  If this person didn't want to deal, he would "Pass the Buck" to the next player.  If that player accepted, then "the Buck stops here".

 


 

 

I Need Your Help

MEMO FROM THE MAYOR - As the City of Los Angeles continues on the path towards fiscal sustainability, it is important to receive the input and participation of Neighborhood Councils and their constituents. This year we gained valuable insight from community stakeholders by partnering with the Neighborhood Council Budget Advocates to design the community budget survey. (Must See Video)

The community budget survey was released January 15, 2012 and distributed to all 95 Neighborhood Councils around the City.  It is available for public access at budgetsurveyla.com.  The survey includes questions focused on the City’s major budget concerns for the upcoming fiscal year, and will be available until February 22, 2012. Upon the deadline, my office will collect the information and release the findings to the public.  

We hope that Angelenos will take full advantage of this opportunity.  This is your chance to help make the City work for you; your views are a vital aspect in creating a spending plan that truly reflects the needs of our city.
