a native's eye on
Sunland Tujunga and North Hollywood
GRAND OPENING WEEK:
what this is
is all about
- INDEPENDENCE, WE SPEAK OUR MINDS
HAPPY FOURTH and us ST'ers celebrate wildly
and together, the town announces the fireworks
show at Verdugo High, while earlier there is a
PARADE will all the locals.
HERE we see a PARADE participant, and as
you can see the community's envolvement
with local politics is visible; here against hillside
developments that threaten the natural areas.
Click above to yesterday's post to see the
NO HOME DEPOT paraders.
NOT ALL protests are successful, the people who
said no to the GOLF COURSE in the Tujunga wash
had a hard time saving natural species... there was
some compromise, but golfers won... they did a good
job though with their planning.

ART DECO THEATER

myself and JME did this a few years ago,
oh, it was 'saved', as a banquet hall...
I remember in the 1970's CHURCH GROUPS
picketing ! the DRIVE-IN (were former K-Mart was)
to protest R rated movies being shown.

have to do with this intersection's history,
and did you know we had a Baskins here too ?
