Neighborhood Councils Move to Become Public Voice on Port Projects By Paul Rosenberg p. 3 ACE Arts & Culture Ethereal, Eclectic Band— Panther Heart—Says Farewell By Greggory Moore p. 11 The Local Publication You Actually Read By Terelle Jerricks, Managing Editor Photo by Phillip Cook When Paul Tanaka, the former undersheriff of the Los Angeles County Sheriffs Department sat down for an interview with Random Lengths News, the question I wanted to ask was, ‘Why are you running?’” Not because I needed him to talk immediately about the reforms he would enact, but because Tanaka was the second most-named person responsible in the 2012 Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors Citizen’s Commission on Jail Violence report at the Men’s Central Jail. Tanaka began answering that question without the context of the commission report, focusing instead on where he and Sheriff Lee Baca parted ways and became arch rivals before Baca’s retirement in January. By Andrea Serna, Arts and Culture Writer Has homelessness become an accepted standard on the streets of America? All too often, Americans accept the existence of homelessness as an intractable part of life and that nothing can be done about it. As a result, more fortunate Americans become blind to it. However, two Port of Los Angeles High School students decided to pick up a camera and investigate the problem for themselves. What resulted is a full length documentary called Hope for Our Own: An LA Story.
