Today’s Headlines

Featured Headline: Last week in Today’s Headlines, we discussed the Sherman Oaks  Neighborhood Council’s “pothole lottery” where the N.C. would pay for one lucky street to have its potholes filled.  While its nice to see an NC take matters into their own hands, and City Councilman Paul Koretz was on hand to celebrate the improved street, another Neighborhood Council Member is wondering if we’re sending the wrong message.  Is this an NC taking their destiny in their own hands, or is it letting the city off the hook?
