Thank you for providing the notice of the Interfaith Thanksgiving service and for the article explaining the Jewish feast of Sukkot. The local churches are working hard to serve their community during this difficult time and it would be great to see more coverage of their effort.
Absurd that Coastal Commission is fining the LADWP because of endangered plants. They would rather have endangered plants than power poles, which would save houses from burning down.
The best thing we can do to cut down on the rat population is to keep our trash bin lids fully closed, and replace them if they are damaged. A rat can nose through even a crack, let alone a hole in a bin. The good news is that replacing all types of bins is free! Get your bin’s serial number, which is in white text on the front of the bin, and call 311, or (800) 773-2489 or on your phone, or use the MyLA311 app.
I recommend that people looking to donate this year consider doing so to the Vittorios toy drive, to One Voice or Westside Food Bank. Those are the groups that I usually donate to.
I took a drive through the village area Friday night and saw several groups of teenagers, some masked but a majority not. Please encourage teens to grab a mask on their way out the door and to wear it if they see their friends.
I know the holidays look a little different this year and I can’t wait for the day we can all enjoy each other’s company again, but I’d love to wish all of the Palisades a safe and happy Thanksgiving! Try to step away from all the noise and soak in the day with your loved ones.
Things are changing everyday but one thing I’d like to ask the community is to support small businesses when you can. They have suffered too much, have barely survived and are continuously facing these challenges. Consider that these are people’s livelihoods.
There’s been quite a few reports of car break-ins in the Palisades lately. Don’t forget to lock your car doors and not leave any valuables in plain sight or in your car at all.
