The Rescue Train
Sweet news! Announcing The Rescue Train’s Free Spay & Neuter Clinic: The Rescue Train volunteers are hitting the streets.
In 2012 their mobile clinics will be traveling into neighborhoods in need with high-kill shelters to hit the root of the problem of pet overpopulation!
Tax deductible donations go to spay/neuter the pet of a low income family preventing countless numbers of puppies and kittens from being born. Many of these animals would end up in our city and county shelters only to face euthanasia due to pet overpopulation.
10$ = Free Vaccines for a Dog or Cat
100$ = One Spay/Neuter Surgery
for clinic details.
Observe the Night Sky
Teens and other interested folks are invited to observe the night sky at the Studio City Branch Library. The Sidewalk Astronomers are members of a club that is devoted to the science of astronomy.

Everyone agrees these are troubled times; life is not what it used to be. Our economy is floundering, business is down for many people, and a state of uncertainty exists. We experience disconnectedness, communication overload, lack of control, and we are cranky about it! You can hunker down and hope things get better, or you can move forward toward your goals.
Please join United Chambers for a motivational luncheon led by Guest Speaker Mimi Donaldson, with lots of humor, who will provide four growth strategies for tough times and the five pitfalls to avoid on your road to triumph.
The four strategies are:
- Build stronger ties to your clients and customers.
- Take time to consider what is positive.
- Redefine what your business is.
- Review all expenses and build cash reserves.
Mimi will take you from misery to mirth, and have you laughing about the very troubles that make times tough. $25 for Chamber Members and $30 for Non-Chamber Members.

TOM LABONGE NEWS
Councilmember LaBonge requests that you save the date of Thursday, March 8, from 8-9 a.m. to attend a press conference with DWP representatives to formally announce the Headworks Project.
As many of you already know, especially those living in the Silver Lake and Los Feliz areas of our district, the River Supply Conduit Project has been under construction for the last two years. Yet many residents do not understand what the pipeline project is all about. This visit to the site of Headworks on Forest Lawn Drive will give you a good understanding of this massive and historic infrastructure project that will be delivering drinking water to the people of Los Angeles.
Please mark your calendars. More information to follow.
Best, Alice Roth

Tribute to Bob & Dolores
Councilman Tom LaBonge was joined by Linda Hope — the daughter of Bob and Dolores Hope — to unveil a sign marking the intersection of Lankershim Boulevard and Moorpark Street as “Bob and Dolores Hope Square” on Monday, Feb. 27. The event took place in front of St. Charles Borromeo Church and Monsignor Robert Gallagher delivered the invocation, and provided the refreshments at a reception following at the church service center that Dolores Hope provided the funds to build. The Hopes were married at the church and Dolores Hope’s Memorial Service was held in a smaller chapel adjacent to the church. The St. Charles Children’s Choir performed a few selections, including “America, the Beautiful.”
