President of Italy Bestows Title on Councilman Buscaino

Ports O’ Call Village Developers Respond to Criticism

The developers in negotiations with the Port of Los Angeles over the redevelopment of Ports O’ Call Village responded to criticism last week that they are to blame for delay in moving forward with the project. In a letter to Harbor Commissioners, the L.A. Waterfront Alliance’s Wayne Ratkovich blasted comments from former restaurant owner John Papadakis and others suggesting that the developers are coming up short. Negotations have been extended several times, most recently with the possibility of going into November, weeks before the leases of current Ports O’ Call tenants are set to expire at the end of this year. The impasse seems to be who will handle and pay for infrastructure, with the Port now conducting a feasibility study on it. In the meantime, interviews are being conducted with candidates to fill the Port’s open executive director position, with an announcement expected soon.

World’s Largest Rubber Duck Coming to Port of L.A. this Summer

Los Angeles will be the second city in North America to welcome the world’s largest rubber duck when it comes into the Port later this summer to kick off the Tall Ships Festival, it was announced last week. The giant duck, created by Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman in 2007, will join more than a dozen tall ships in the Grand Parade of Sail on August 20. Los Angeles will be the first west coast port to host the 85-foot-tall, more than 1,300-pound inflatable duck, which has also sailed in Australia, Taiwan, China, Belgium, Japan, New Zealand, Brazil and Pittsburgh.

Dana Middle School Getting S.T.E.A.M. Magnet

The magnet will focus on S.T.E.A.M. coursework and bridge the gap between elementary school and high school magnets.

Crafted Hosts Congressional Art Competition

Congresswoman Janice Hahn held this year’s Congressional Art Competition at Crafted at the Port of Los Angeles on Saturday. The event showcased dozens of submissions of artwork from high school students throughout the 44th District. First place winner Angelica Macias, of Compton High School, will fly to Washington, D.C. to see her art hung in the nation’s capitol beside the works of other winners from across the country.
