Papa’s Place is having their official “Grand Opening” tomorrow, Saturday, August 28, 2010. Doors will open to the public from 12 noon to 6pm, then a private staff meeting on Sunday, and regular working hours again on Monday (11am-9pm). The owner, Cengiz Karachua, has dedicated the unique Turkish-German Deli Style restaurant to his father, who served the Los Feliz community as the Golden Needle Tailoring for 23 years prior. His father had always wished for his son to open a restaurant and about two years after his passing, his dreams will be realized. An official menu had not yet been finalized, but the manager stated the Turkish – German take out style establishment will be unique. Sauerkraut and sausages…Mediterranean sandwiches…burgers..and a bakery!

Yesterday, the LA Zoo announced that 22 of the 23 hatched brand new Komodo Dragons now reside at the Zoo, from eggs laid in January by their mother, Lima. Only 14 to 20 inches long now with a weight of 3-4 ounces, they are reported to grow up to 200 lbs or more, being the largest lizard in the world! Komodo Dragons have a reputation for having a poisonous bite.

The city of Los Angeles has become the largest city to post the salaries online of all its employees, since the break of the salary scandal of the City of Bell. “In light of what happened in Bell, I thought it was important for Los Angeles to set an example and post the salary of every city employee online,” said Wendy Greuel, city controller. She went on to say..”this is an important step to provide greater transparency and openness in how taxpayer dollars are spent.”

As of July 18, 2010, the Los Feliz Library’s hours have been reduced(they are now closed on Sundays and Mondays and close much earlier) and part of the staff has been laid off. This also affects us as a community with fewer access to services and all that a library can offer.
