Today’s Headlines

Featured Headline: We’ve written a lot about the battle for the Leimert Park Station for the Crenshaw Line, but we haven’t talked much about the other station that dropped from “planned” to “ommitted” from the Crenshaw environmental documents.  LA Weekly has the scoop on the fight for a Westchester Metro Station and features a long interview with a member of the local Neighborhood Council.  Westchester may not have the p.r. appeal of the Leimert Station, but Councilman Bill Rosendahl and other pols are jumping on board the fight for a Westside station that would connect to the airport.
