a native's eye on
Sunland Tujunga and North Hollywood
what this is
is all about
Below is another Watermelon Festival sign in
front of the former KMART,
What does this have to do with the little
old lady and her Crosswalk Conviction?
She did not have to PAY but was WRONG?...
I HAVE A STORY TO TELL ABOUT
WHAT I PRESUME ABOUT THAT
INTERSECTION IN QUESTION,
THAT IT HAS BEEN A CONTINUING
AREA OF A VIOLATION TRAP
and what about Big Boy?...
-THIS IS THE XWALK STORY...
What I heard over 8 (eight) years ago may
change everyone's minds about the so-called
'conclusion' to the news reports, worldwide, that
an older Sunland Tujunga resident was stopped by
an LAPD motorofficer and received a TICKET for
not walking fast enough across Foothill Blvd.
A regular working stiff 8 years ago told me the
story how he was ticketed at the same intersection.
I remember how he was adament that he did not
have enough time to cross the street to get to work.
He was about 18 years old working at a job nearby
and he felt the officer, back then, had targeted him.
I remember being in Downtown L.A. at about 11
years old walking around looking at the sites when
elderly ladies crossing the street would ask you to
walk with them.
So, instead we STALK our seniors and FINING them
instead of correcting the problem...
not just supposedly reading the penal code.
If you know the LAW then you
can improve on the culture you live in...
I've said enough...
The videos show the old kmart now closed also the site
of the Edward's Drive In we all enjoyed,
it had a fireplace in the snack bar.
The actual xwalk is shown with the new 'countdown'
seconds and they are on for a longer time.
Wendy Greuel had a lot to get this done now.
-I STILL ASK WHY WAS THIS A VIOLATION TRAP
by whomever, but the ticketing was by the LAPD.
How many others...for MONEY,
you know it wasn't SAFETY.
- AND WHAT ABOUT BOB'S BIG BOY ???
that is just how that person looked 8 years
ago, nice haircut, working person,
not the same clothes nor chubby.
-JIMMY DEAN'S Burger joint on the far corner
and DO YOU
REMEMBER WE HAD A
BOB'S BIG BOY RESTAURANT...
-VALLEY PLAZA MEMORIES
Here is a remainder of Valley Plaza.
Radio Shack and Smart & Final occupy a building the I
say was an original inside mall. The Radio Shack area
where shops which you would enter right inside the
Thriftimart Market. As you walked in to the right was
a kiosk like shoe repair. There was also a Chef's
Chicken BBQ. Further north the other buildings
included DRUCKERS Kosher Deli, a Jewish Bakery
and the Thrifty Drug with a fountain at the back.
The market at Archwood was originally called
Mc Donald's Market with a Scotsman logo.

Sunland Tujunga & North Hollywood
are the City of Los Angeles,
California in the U.S.A.
We also live in the County of Los Angeles
this is the evil maybe x-logo that has that
G-d reference, and other stuff of the devils.
The County has used for it decades, WHO KNEW?
We can always make fun of ourselves
as with the fake-logo for Kalifoana.
With this neighborhood blog about
these cities with unique
historys and lifestyles,
we will shed some humor
and truths concerning our
Los Angeles Megalopolis.
