Theatre recognized, but fight to save site continues
By Billy Taylor

From p. 4, Section 2, of the September 2021 Larchmont Chronicle:

The Fairfax Theatre was recently nominated to the National Register of Historic Places, but because the owner objects to the designation, the battle to preserve the 1929 theater continues.

The California State Historical Resources Commission (SHRC) voted unanimously July 30 to nominate the Fairfax Theatre to the National Register following a presentation by Steven Luftman. The building owner’s legal representation, Bill Delvac, argued at the meeting that the building no longer maintained integrity as a theater — but his assertion was not accepted by the Commission.

Housing solutions are on a fast track, says leader at PATH
By Talia Abrahamson

From p. 7 of the September 2021 Larchmont Chronicle:

Housing-forward, person-centered solutions to homelessness have been Tessa Madden Storms’s work for the past decade.

Madden Storms, who lives in Windsor Village, is the senior director of philanthropy at PATH (People Assisting The Homeless) and the regional director of PATH Santa Barbara.

“Certainly, the geographical change of pace of going on up to Santa Barbara keeps me on my toes,” Madden Storms laughed.

In her two roles at PATH, she helps individuals experiencing homelessness in both Santa Barbara and greater California. Born in Wichita, Kansas, Madden Storms moved to California in order to attend USC, where she earned a bachelor of arts degree in political science, with minors in nonprofit and organizational management.

In-person school returns; local parents opine on experiences
By Caroline Tracy

From p. 10 of the September 2021 Larchmont Chronicle:

After 17 months of remote or hybrid school, campuses across Los Angeles County have resumed in-person learning for the 2021 / 2022 calendar year. For many in our community, this is a welcome turn of events, but it does not come without concerns. The surge in COVID-19 cases (including breakthrough cases) spurred by the Delta variant has thrown many parents into a renewed state of caution. Here’s how a handful of locals (our neighbors) are feeling about the state of things right now:

Will sympathy bring success for Giorgio?
By Helene Seifer

From p. 1 of the September 2021 Larchmont Chronicle:

“I need my money,” insists Giorgio, the 56-year-old who visits Larchmont Boulevard daily with a shopping cart filled with his meager possessions. “It’s an obligation! According to the law!” he shouts, referring to some combination of unemployment, Social Security and disability compensation he says he used to get until he received an unsigned letter from a government official denying him further payments.

Giorgio tells a long saga about his government benefits, involving first being sent to a post office to collect his checks, then to the Social Security office, then to a payday advance store. About 18 months ago, Giorgio reports, he got that cessation of benefits letter and checks stopped coming.

Ballerinas at Marat Daukayev dance for joy and in person
By Nona Sue Friedman

From p. 14 of the September 2021 Larchmont Chronicle:

Happiness and happy feet are what the students at Marat Daukayev School of Ballet are feeling these days. After many months of practicing alone at home and only connecting with their ballet friends via Zoom, the dancers are finally back in person as of July.

Parents and dancers alike are “On cloud nine,” according to mom Kate Cury of La Brea Hancock, whose daughter Annabel, 12, attends the school. “It was incredible for my daughter to go from home to her chosen family,” says Ms. Cury.

Third time’s a charm for Sound of Music enthusiast
By Caroline Tracy

From p. 21 of the September 2021 Larchmont Chronicle:

Brookside resident and Third Street Elementary fourth grader, Nikka Gueler, won first prize in the costume contest at this summer’s “Sing-A-Long Sound of Music” event at the Hollywood Bowl on Aug. 21. The winning costume was an interpretation of the movie’s protagonist, Maria, as a “problem to solve.”

Home Ground: A splash of cold witch hazel: Raymond Chandler’s prose
By Paula Panich

From p. 2, Section 2, of the September 2021 Larchmont Chronicle:

Raymond Chandler, who some people consider the best writer of detective novels in English, didn’t like that sort of hyperbole at all. He thought it was just “critics’ jargon,” this separating works of literature into this sort, or that sort.

But last week, bored and recovering from illness, I reached out to my shelf, and for no particular reason, “The Long Goodbye,” Chandler’s 1953 novel, came to hand. I began rereading:

Rossmore apartment project presented at a ‘town hall’
By Billy Taylor

From p. 3, Section 2, of the September 2021 Larchmont Chronicle:

A neighborhood town hall meeting hosted by Atlanta-based developer Domos Coliving attracted more than 30 local residents last month to hear details of plans to renovate the apartment building at 410 N. Rossmore Ave.

National Public Radio’s Frances Anderton, host of the KCRW show “DnA: Design and Architecture,” was the event’s moderator. A panel of guest speakers included the project’s architect, Lorcan O’Herlihy, FAIA, Carlos Orozco with Morley Builders and Domos director of design and construction, Richard Loring. Domos Co-Founder Daniel Alexander was expected, but he had to cancel due to a family emergency. In his place, Jason Wright, a coliving resident at Hollywood’s Treehouse, was on hand to share his experience.

On the Boulevard: Family Fair update, and changes afoot
By Billy Taylor

From p. 1 of the September 2021 Larchmont Chronicle:

100 years!

Excitement mounts as our local community prepares to celebrate the one hundredth anniversary of the founding of the Larchmont Boulevard shopping district. Special activities are planned for Sun., Oct. 24. More on that in a bit.

Downward dogs, tranquility are back at Center for Yoga
By Suzan Filipek

From p. 1 of the September 2021 Larchmont Chronicle:

“It’s cathartic,” Center for Yoga manager Deb Anderson said of the studio’s re-opening Aug. 24 at 230 ½ N. Larchmont Blvd.

“It’s awesome to be able to re-envision the space and finish what I started … experimentation, new workshops and bringing more life and different styles of yoga.”

Anderson had to roll up her mat after only eight months on the job when the pandemic hit.

At the opening, the excitement was palatable among the crowd at the city’s longest continually running yoga studio. The center offers a wide variety of classes, ranging from beginning to advanced. Gentle yin, restorative and meditation are also on the menu.

When the curtain rises at the new six-story Academy Museum of Motion Pictures on Thurs., Sept. 30, a classic film with live music will herald its opening. The first three months will feature special programming, and visitors will be able to dine at a restaurant inspired by Hollywood’s glory days.

Fire alarm at Good Goose temporarily shuts down café
By John Welborne

From p. 3 of the September 2021 Larchmont Chronicle:

Significant amounts of smoke, apparently from an overheated electric bicycle or scooter battery charging in a storage area of the Good Goose Café, 5210 Beverly Blvd., at around 5:15 p.m. on Wed., Aug. 25, led to a major turnout of Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD) and Police Department responders.

Our pets enjoy kisses, walks on Larchmont and dressing up
By Suzan Filipek

From the July 2021 Larchmont Chronicle:

We asked neighbors to send photos of their best furry friends for our annual Pets of Larchmont issue. And they did not disappoint!

There’s Cowboy, a friendly Aussie-koolie, who’s “as cute as he is handsome,” and Rita, who is enjoying the good life after living on the streets of Mexico.

Sally, a yellow 1-year-old Labrador, likes to kiss her new Windsor Square neighbor, Holly, a ginger mini-goldendoodle who turns 2 this month.

New parkway trees planted thanks to resident volunteers
By Billy Taylor

From the June 2021 Larchmont Chronicle:

The Larchmont Trees Project was busy last month getting 16 new parkway trees planted in the neighborhood.

Larchmont resident Haines Wilkerson, the group’s coordinator, told the Chronicle that, during the pandemic, he had the necessary free time to reorganize the group of volunteers: “We got the band back together again!”

Months of planning came to fruition on May 22 when a truck full of trees arrived, ready to plant in the parkways along Lucerne, Rosewood and Clinton in the Larchmont Heights neighborhood.
