I feel a tremendous ambivalence about Caruso. On the one hand, there is all the possible disruption from tens of thousands of visitors. On the other hand, I will at last be able to walk to the movies.
I am concerned about the proposed construction of the dementia facility in The Highlands. Not only will it cause more traffic on an already dangerous Palisades Drive, but as we learned from the hurricane-related nursing home deaths in Florida, it could be catastrophic if there is a major earthquake, given how isolated The Highlands is!
Senior Living II
A speaker at the community council: “I noticed a typo in the Post, where it said that the sleek new senior living facility was proposed for The Highlands. Surely that should have read a ‘bleak’ new senior living facility … ”
I am sorry to say but I will not be serving candy to kids dressed like Donald Trump this year. My lawyer friend told me I could get in major trouble for doing this—and at his suggestion I will post a sign that I reserve the right to refuse service to anyone. I am also going to send a letter certified mail to all of my neighbors telling them to do the same. Halloween is about the kids and having fun, but I can’t support a kid who lacks common sense and dresses like DJT.
The person who submitted the deer comment last week seems very nice, but uninformed. First, we all know deer breed in the fall, well before the rainy season last year. So, don’t “Blame it on the Rain” like Milli Vanilli did in the 90s (talented musical artists). Secondly, after we hit a deer, are we supposed to walk back down the canyon late at night, look for a sign with flashlight in hand, read the fine print, call the veterinarian, and then walk back to our car and wait two hours for someone to come? Like I said, well-intended person with a really bad idea.
What is with all of the black Uber and limo drivers using Pampas Ricas as a parking lot in between jobs? Can anything be done about this? Somehow the word has gotten out among the drivers that this is a good place to hangout but it’s way uncool. This is a residential neighborhood not a commercial parking lot!
Anyone else notice Palisades Ralphs employees in uniform smoking in front of the store where customers walk in? I’ve witnessed this many times over the past few months. It’s not a good look and it can’t be good for business!
Drivers speeding up and down Palisades Drive in The Highlands is a problem. LAPD motorcycle cops hiding behind trees and walls entrap more speeders into tickets, but probably don’t actually make the road safer since most drivers don’t see them. In lieu of a more visible presence, how about the police station inflatable motorcycle police decoys on the road to get driver attention and encourage drivers to slow down?
