Hollywood Labor Day stabbing suspect arrested

An investigation is underway after two men were stabbed during a group fight in the 6700 block of Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood on Monday, Sept. 2, 2013.

— Paul Thornton, letters editor A typical reaction was Porter Ranch resident Frances Sikorski’s: “Here we go again. “First people complain about living near an airport; now others complain about living near the Hollywood sign. Were the complainers there before the sign? Probably not. “Take down the sign and I bet their property values would drop. I was born in Hollywood and love the landmark.” Victoria Carlson of Burbank sympathizes with the locals: “I walk dogs in the Beachwood Canyon area. Every day I witness gaggles of tourists who double park or park in red zones and then make the mad dash into the middle of Beachwood Canyon to pose for photographs featuring our iconic Hollywood sign in the background. “Seems a lot of these tourists have little regard for their own safety. It’s all about getting that award-winning shot, after all. “I spend a lot of time in the Beachwood area, so I know how to navigate those twisted, narrow canyon roads. I’m always mindful of other vehicles as well as urban wildlife. (In recent weeks, I’ve had several deer run across the road right in front of me.) “Something definitely needs to be done to protect the safety of tourists and locals alike, as well as preserve our historic hilltop neighborhoods and the parkland surrounding them. There has to be a happy medium somewhere.” Santa Monica resident Bruce R. Feldman has a modest proposal: “To help the beleaguered Beachwood Canyon residents, let us in Santa Monica move their historic sign to our beautiful, tourist-friendly community by the sea.
