News & Notes:

  • Union Bank has opened up a student-run branch at Lincoln High, where students, staff and parents can conduct business like any other bank branch. While the program at the Lincoln Heights campus has created jobs for students and  provides a lesson in money management, it has also raised concern about the motivation of the bank, reports KPCC.
  • A Glassell Park woman who was attacked by two dogs publicly thanked the UPS driver who came to her rescue during the Valentine’s Day incident, according to ABC 7. The two dogs remain in the neighborhood but the woman is requesting that the animals be euthanized.
  • The Big Parade will pass through Echo Park, Los Feliz and Silver Lake this weekend as part of  a walk covering 35 miles and 100 public stairways between downtown and Griffith Park.
  • LAPD is planning to set up a DUI checkpoint tonight in Silver Lake on Hyperion Avenue.

  1. Shouldn’t DUI checkpoints be a surprise? Why are they being announced?

    • The LAPD discovered that announced DUI checkpoints actually reduce drunk driving. People become more aware of their drinking, apparently. And the dangerously drunk drivers will probably not be alert enough to avoid them anyway. Only the more aware buzzed drivers get away, nervously.

      The Sheriffs still use unannounced checkpoints.
