Garcetti's List

El Grito

Last night, hundreds of Angelenos attended our city's El Grito festivities on Olvera Street.

El Grito celebrates Mexico's independence and is not only part of Mexico's history, but a part of Los Angeles's cultural heritage.

I'd like to thank Consul General of Mexico David Figueroa Ortega and Jose Duarte, President of the Comite Civico Patriotico, for joining us.

Celebrating the New Echo Park Solar "BigBelly"

Today we installed a solar-powered “BigBelly” trash can on the corner of Echo Park and Sunset Boulevard. Because it has a built in compactor, the BigBelly unit can hold four times as much trash as the average trash can making it more cost-effective and more environmentally- friendly than traditional trash disposal options.

The BigBelly unit, which was funded through city grants, will help prevent overflow trash from ending up in storm drains and in places like Echo Park.

Thank you to everyone who helped make the BigBelly installation possible, including the Trash Abatement Project.

FAME Church's 7th Annual Back to School Giveaway

Over the weekend, I attended the First AME Church and Economic Development Corporations' 7th Annual Back to School Giveaway and Health Fair.

Families from around Los Angeles enjoyed free health care screenings, food, and entertainment hosted by Power 106 FM. Kids were also eligible to receive a free pair of shoes, backpack and school supplies to help get them off to a successful new school year.

Fond Memories Of Bonnie Brae St.

Posted by Robert Rouge` on January 20, 2016 at 3:00am 1 Comment

Echo Park was my first residence in Los Angeles, after migrating from the mid-west at the young age of 18, and arriving on a Greyhound bus to have a new beginning in the city of the angel's. I lived in Echo Park for approximately eight years, and those were my fondest memories, especially the ducks, geese and swans at the lake and the "grasshopper" type oil wells just down the street on Bonnie Brae and near Belmont High School.

My landlady, Haytivik Viola Smith, adopted me as her surrogate nephew and was my spiritual aunt until her death in 1979. Besides my natural mother, she was my greatest inspiration, through her loving kindness to me and many other people in the community. She became an artist after retiring from the Federal Government downtown, and her specialty was painting on Japanese…
