The Ovarian Psycos Documentary KickStarter hit the ground running by raising after it's first day of the campaign $2,500 of its $10,000. It's a worthy cause for a group of righteous women. Check out the trailer after the link. http://la.streetsblog.org/2013/01/25/the-ovarian-psycos-documentary-kicks-off-its-kickstarter/

A lot of contention on this project, but opposing sides react differently on the inadequacies at the Wyvernwood Apartments. Both sides agree living conditions are intolerable, but one wants the buildings to be renovated and preserved, while the other wants to start from scratch and redevelop. #boyleheights   http://la.streetsblog.org/2013/01/14/sides-agree-wyvernwood-living-conditions-intolerable-divided-on-right-solution/

Every day for the last two years, we have featured a reader photo depicting a Southern California Moment. Here's one of our favorites, submitted by Jay G. Thornton and published on April 13, 2012:

Marines at the Twentynine Palms base keep tabs on a puppy using a ribbon as a makeshift leash.

Mulled over this post for a while. Thinking about La Virgen on the Eastside during this holiday season got me thinking about my year reporting in Boyle Heights. Would love to hear your thoughts. Thank you Las Fotos Project for letting me use your photos in the slideshow. And to everyone I met this year on the Eastside, Happy Holidays. http://la.streetsblog.org/2012/12/21/la-virgen-like-another-mother-and-reflecting-on-boyle-heights/
