Schwarzenegger gets walloped
Voters in California terminated Arnold’s pretensions as a populist, Nov. 8, by giving a thumbs down to all propositions on the ballot. His Big Business cronies discovered that California is, indeed, a progressive land that prefers teachers, nurses and social services more than it does has-been right-wing actors. See next month’s Beachhead for the Venice vote.
Abbot Kinney gets a party
An Abbot Kinney’s Birthday Bash will be held at the Pioneer Bakery on Rose Avenue from 7-11 pm, Nov. 12. The band, “Venice,” will perform. Proceeds to go to the restoration of the Venice Sign which once hung above Windward Avenue. $20. (see photo on page 4)
Moratorium picks up steam
Calls for a Venice moratorium on development are being heard around town (see graph on page one). GRVNC Secretary Phil Raider has called for a moratorium on Lincoln Blvd. as more and more projects continue to surface. Also causing concern in the recent sale of the Lincoln & Rose lot that houses Venice shopping favorites SavOn, the 99 cent store and Big Lots. In addition, the Venice Peace & Freedom Party is calling for a Venice-wide moratorium.
