Some in Rancho Park Still Without Power! Others Left with Damaged Appliances, Water Heaters and More

Following the very exciting 4:30am power surge(s) yesterday, some folks in our neighborhood are still without power. DWP trucks were parked along Veteran at Brookhaven this morning, presumably working on the problem.  Neighbors report varying degrees of damage ranging from fried tankless water heaters and microwaves, to non-functioning outlets and fritzed-out X-boxes.  In our house a number of bulbs blew out, outlets fried, and appliances are malfunctioning (including our bedroom ceiling fan…

Yes on Measure L -- Restore Library Hours

I'm a big fan of libraries and love to spend time with my kids at the Palm-Racho Park branch on Overland. But last year, as I'm sure you know, funding for libraries was cut drastically.  Libraries across the city were hit hard; hours were drastically slashed and many library workers were laid off.  I discovered this the hard way by showing up on a Monday afternoon to find the doors locked.  I've always believed that like a sound public education that's free and equally available to all…

My Racho Park Secrets... #1: F & S Fabrics Notions Department
