We saw a couple interesting articles over the past week about things happening in our neighborhood.
First off, the Beverly Press had an article about a fire at the Snake Pit Ale House, on Melrose at the corner of Sierra Bonita. Sounds like the popular pub will be shut down for weeks, if not months. Fortunately, no one was hurt. You can read the article here.
Also, Los Angeles Times columnist Steve Lopez had a very nice piece about how students at Fairfax High School have rallied around to help a sick classmate. Lopez quotes the school’s wonderful administrator Joyce Kleifield:
“It’s a community,” said Fairfax development director Joyce Kleifield, whose son was in Jose’s marine biology class. Kleifield said she’s been touched but not surprised at the way students have responded. These are good kids, she told me. Give them a safe environment and inspired teachers, “and anything can happen.”
