Decriminalizing park vending; L.A. Unified enrollment keeps dropping; Philippe’s mourns loss of Atwater Village employee

The proposal to decriminalize vending in city parks and beaches is intended to protect vendors who are in the country illegally from possible deportation. Daily News
  • Falling Enrollment:  The number of students enrolled in L.A. Unified this year dropped by 13,000 from the previous year to 513,875. The decline is slightly larger than expected and comes as the district has been launching new programs to attract more students.  L.A. Times
  • R.I.P.:  Atwater Village resident Judy Young,  who worked a carving line at Philippe’s in Chinatown for 26 years, died at her home on Oct. 4. Philippe’s (h/t Muse)
