Column: Crime, not election, made councilwoman run

A weekly stroll on the Euclid median turned into a foot pursuit by an Ontario councilwoman after she accosted a man taping up one of the hundreds of solicitation notices that have gone up citywide in recent weeks and he thought he could outrun her. Nope.

Following that in Wednesday’s column are some culture corner items, word of a series of civil rights speakers in Claremont and a visit to an LA Aqueduct-themed history exhibit.

    Rare chance to visit the “Cascades,” southern terminus of the Aqueduct and where Mulholland muttered. Wish I could be there, but I’m stuck in water-starved Phoenix.

    The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) is opening The Cascades in Sylmar to the public in celebration of the Los Angeles Aqueduct’s Centennial. This rare opportunity will allow members of the public to see up close the important piece of water infrastructure that marks the southern terminus of the Los Angeles Aqueduct.
    WHEN: November 6 to 8, 2013, 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
    November 9, 2013, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

    Also, hope you are going to Mr. Phoenix’s presentation and can tell us about it.

      The Cascades would be cool for someone with the time to get out there, which won’t include me. I’m thinking of attending Charles’ show. It’s certainly easier to get to!
