Crash east of LA
LA County Sheriff’s SUV crashed into a traffic light pole at Third Street and Mednik Avenue, seriously damaging the vehicle and injuring two deputies. The Eastside
A SuperLotto Plus ticket with five numbers, but the missing Mega number, was sold to 7-11 store on Franklin and Vermont avenues in Los Feliz. Better to find this ticket: it’s worth $ 37,351.
Where will camping be prohibited in the Eastside?
Freeway underpasses at Glassell Park and Silver Lake. Schools in Echo Park and historic Filipinotown. Parks in Boyle Heights and East Hollywood.
These are just a few of the 16 sites in the Eastside where city council members want to enforce recently updated anti-camping ordinance which prohibits encampments as well as sleeping and obstructing sidewalks and other public places. Go here for an interactive map of the sites.
Dozens of anti-camping sites have been designated so far across the city.
On the east side, some of the sites have already been approved while others are still pending. And there could be more in the months to come.
Until there, City Council Members Kevin De Leon from District 14 and Mitch O’Farrell from District 13 took the initiative to identify Eastside sites, which must be within 500 feet of schools, parks and other sensitive locations or 1,000 feet in certain shelters.
During this time, Gil Cedillo of District 1 Council did not submit any sites for consideration and approval by city council. Neither has Board Member Nithya Raman, a vocal critic of the law, in Municipal District 4.
“The council member has not filed and has no plans to drop any banned sites at this time,” a Raman spokesperson said.
The order consists of several stages, including:
• Residents not staying at the sites should be offered shelter, accommodation and other services
• Signage must be posted and notice given when the ordinance is enforced for the region
• Personal belongings will be removed and the site cleaned up once the homeless have left; they would be forbidden to come back
• Those who break the law are subject to sanctions
Critics of the anti-camping law say it is inhumane and makes roaming a crime. But supporters argue it offers a compassionate and safe alternative to life on the streets.

GOOD TO KNOW
Do you know your watering days?
You’ve probably heard that we’ve been asked to conserve water after a drought emergency was declared this week. What you may not know (or have chosen to ignore) is that residents and businesses in the city of LA have been subject to mandatory water conservation restrictions since 2009.
Now, in the wake of the drought emergency, the Los Angeles Department of Water and Electricity has said it will start enforcing those restrictions more aggressively and increasing patrols in search of water wasters.
What are these mandatory restrictions? Here is:
• Outdoor watering by sprinkling is limited to three days per week. People with odd addresses can water on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays; even addresses can water on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.
• No sprinkler watering between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. regardless of the watering day.
• Sprinklers with non-conservative nozzles can only run for up to 8 minutes per station; conservation nozzles can run for 15 minutes per station.
• No watering in case of rain or within 48 hours of rain.
• Hand watering with a self-closing nozzle on the hose is allowed any day of the week before 9:00 a.m. or after 4:00 p.m.
• No water runoff in streets, alleys and gutters.
• No washing of hard surfaces such as sidewalks, driveways, driveways or parking areas using water, except for health and safety purposes.
• All leaks should be repaired in a timely manner.
• Washing of vehicles is allowed using a hose with a self-closing water stop nozzle.
The textual ads are broadcast for 3 consecutive days in the Matin and Soir editions of the Daily Digest, with nearly 6,000 subscribers.
