To the parents of the teenage girl driving a black Audi down Via De La Paz on Tuesday morning: Your daughter was so intent on texting that she blew through the stop sign at Palisades Village Lane without even slowing down while she was on her way to Pali High. I knocked on her window after, as she nearly hit me, and shocked her as she wasn’t even aware of the stop sign, let alone pedestrians. I mention this because as a parent of a teenager myself, we ALL need to strictly enforce that our kids turn on “Do Not Disturb While Driving” on their phones. Even when we have the best of kids, they just don’t have the self-discipline to ignore texts while driving.
How nice to see that Casa Nostra, the great Italian restaurant in the Highlands, has opened on Sunset in the Village. Great chow, easier on the wallet than across the street, and the nicest owner and staff going. Let’s support this local favorite!
Do others have my problem entering the McClure tunnel on a sunny day while wearing sunglasses and going into a very dark tunnel with about 1/3 of the low watt bulbs burnt out?
When at Ralph’s on Sunday, one of the checkers remarked that by the time she finishes her shift, all that’s left (these days) in the aisles for her kids is junk food. I’m not sure if she’s shopping in the Palisades store (at which she arrives before her shift to help re-stock the shelves day in and day out) or closer to her home, but what could we as a community do to make sure we’re taking care of the people that are taking care of us during these uncertain times?
My daughter just told me that stores in her area (Charleston SC), mostly markets and drugstores, are restricting the first hour after their opening to seniors over 65, so as to limit their exposure to the broader range of people who might be spreading the virus unknowingly. Perhaps that is something that could be implemented in the Palisades.
(Editor’s note: As the Post went to print, Erewhon and Gelson’s have both committed to an hour for seniors and/or immunocompromised shoppers.)
How many times does the mayor have to assure us that there is NO shortage of supplies before I am able to purchase my regular groceries from the store?
