No Bench Room
I was in the Village on a Tuesday af- ternoon and waiting to meet a friend. Unfortunately, every bench around the Business Block building had a homeless person sitting on it. Where are they all coming from?
Charging an electric car can take as much power as a small house. Is Pacific Palisades ready with upgraded transformers to provide electricity to the many new cars now plugged into outlets in the Palisades and also to the homes—or will we be experiencing more brown-outs?
Shout Out for PaliHi
So far this school year, the kids at Palisades High have been doing a good job of keeping their trash picked up along Temescal Canyon Road.
Parking at Will Rogers
My wife and I enjoy taking visiting friends and relatives up to Will Rogers Park, but object to paying such a high parking fee ($12). Fortunately, we have discovered a great deal: you can pay $50 for a one-year credit card that can be used 365 days a year. Simply show it to the parking-lot ranger or place it on your dashboard. You can purchase the card at the park with a check or cash.
Upset by Road Closure
I support all the hard work people do to organize charity runs along Los Angeles streets, but there was very little warning about road closures for the Oc- tober 25 run at the high school. I was late to an appointment because I couldn’t go down Temescal Canyon Road (shut between 7 and 10 a.m.). I know there’s a Thanksgiving Day race coming up: Can the organizers please let everyone know about road closures?
Seeking Fiber Optics
When is Pacific Palisades going to have fiber optics and finally do away with slow-functioning DSL?
No Mail Complaints
Everyone complains when there’s a problem with mail delivery, but no one compliments the carriers when it’s going smoothly, as it does our street in the Alphabets. Good job everybody.
