  1. Craig Collins put in hundreds or thousands of hours over his years with the Committee to Save Silver Lakes Reservoirs. The recreation oriented amenities and improvements we enjoy today only result from years of dedicated involvement by a small core of selfless individuals, like Craig Collins .

    Now that he has left the organization, can he speak candidly about who the Committee represents and what is really in store for Silver Lake?
    Was he bought out, did he sell out or just burn out?
    Does he disagree that the past 15 years of community involvement in the planning for Silver Lake amounts to 15 years of bait-and-switch by the DWP ?
    Can the chroniclers of L.A. history place the story of Silver Lake Reservoir right after the chapter on Chavez Ravine?
    Can anyone from CSSLR or the DWP or the City Council or Mayor Garcetti explain why the Bypass Replacement Project should not be stopped right now?

  2. Once upon a time, that little plumbing building in Mr. Morgus’ cover photo to this “Morning Report” was an LAPD local “substation” — believe it or don’t!

    • Is this back when the area was policed by a constable? That place is so small!

      • No, it wasn’t that long ago. It was just a sub station so the LAPD could use it as an office space to write reports instead of wasting time having to drive back to the station every time.. The space was donated to them. Since the Police Museum opened, they can stop in there.
