Why is Pali Rec Center different?
*Median age in Los Angeles is 34.6.
*Median age in Pacific Palisades is ~50
*50 and older are at a higher risk of death with Covid 19.
*The Huntington’s median age must be well above 50.
*LAPD very clearly stated that they are not testing homeless campers for the Covid Virus. Taking temperature is not the same as testing for the presence of the virus. Testing and retesting campers is planned to be 0%.
*Does it make sense to open up a Homeless Camp at the Rec Center in the Huntington? *No!
Rec Center II
Has Mayor Garcetti lost his mind? Concentrating the homeless in rec centers is exactly the OPPOSITE of the correct strategy for stopping the spread of this virus! It is so flagrantly stupid and contrary to all accepted science that I must believe the Mayor has other motives here. I honestly think he’s trying to get us used to having homeless shelters in our neighborhoods, an impractical and deeply unpopular idea that he will never let go of. When it comes to our Homeless Crisis this guy really is the worst Mayor ever!
Rec Center III
Dr. Kahn put in words why confining the homeless in our Rec Center is a recipe for disaster in a letter shared on Nextdoor. Thank you for trying!
I agree with last week’s writer in 2 cents complaining about Muskingum street numbers. I live on the “small and inconsequential” Place and often my life-saving medication is misdirected to our “same numbered” partners on Avenue. It is frustrating! But I have gotten to know our “same numbered” partners on Avenue as we walk to each other’s home for misdirected mail. We have enjoyed swapping stories about mail issues, families, vacations, illness, etc. So, misdirected mail has led to new friendships…Maybe we should have a Muskingum Avenue/Place “block party?” What do you think?
Since the publication of last week’s 2 cents suggesting subsuming Muskingum Place within Muskingum Avenue, several Muskingum Place neighbors have confronted me, either by knocking on my door or approaching me while walking my dog. Muskingum Place neighbors: please continue to shelter in place and maintain appropriate social distance until we get through this public health crisis. Then we’ll deal with taking over your confusing little street.
Out for a solitary walk, I came upon a gardener raking a yard. He was smiling. How sweet was the sound of the tines scraping the earth! Let’s all use this opportunity to wean our gardeners off the gas powered LBs that are so harmful to their health.
Hats off to PPRA! I’ve lived in the Palisades since 1984 and want to acknowledge this organization that has been so consistent in its service to our community. Now they are active in helping those in need because of COVID19. We are blessed to have PPRA and they deserve the community‘s support in helping them to continue to support the community.
