homelessness goals are the same for all involved parties


rj sangosti, denver post filedenver police and city workers clear homeless ps on lawrence street on nov. 15.re: “moment of truth for denver’s anti- ping law,” jan. 21 vincent carroll column. vincent carroll criticizes those experiencing homelessness and their advocates for trying to take away the city’s responsibility to provide safe and attractive “sidewalks, alleys, parks and other public property.” what carroll seems to forget is that everyone wants the same basic end, but for different reasons.the city, the business community and some members of the public want to get rid of those experiencing homelessness from sleeping on the 16th street mall and sidewalks because their presence interferes with business, tourism and the general ambiance of the city. those who are homeless and their ad

urban or suburban? l.a.'s very identity is at stake in the march election


the protests and marches over the ascendancy of donald trump are still underway, but it’s already time, los angeles voters, to focus on another election — one that will not generate one-zillionth of the attention, but which will directly affect daily life in and around the city. of course every election is important, but the local balloting on march 7 is especially significant as the very future of los angeles is up for a vote.over the next three weeks, the times editorial board will endorse candidates for city offices, the los angeles unified board of education and the los angeles community college district, and will take positions on the four measures on the city ballot and measure h on the los angeles county ballot. before making our picks, we interview all the candidates, attend numero






homeless crisis is solvable, but won't yield to political timidity


in government as in business, it’s easy to tell leaders from mere politicians: leaders tend to produce results, while politicians settle for “addressing” problems, usually by spending more of somebody else’s money.early this month, mayor kevin faulconer announced his intention to address san diego’s homeless crisis, with details to come in a few weeks. this gives taxpayers a chance to demand that he lead instead.“this homeless crisis did not start overnight and it will not be solved overnight,” faulconer said jan. 12. “but there is more that our region can do and will do. this is an unprecedented problem that demands an unprecedented level of cooperation.”the mayor is absolutely correct in his diagnosis. yet he failed to mention the real tragedy of san diego’s crisis — it is entirely avoid

homeless spending days at denver’s libraries find help in the stacks – the denve


a crowd waits outside denver’s central library on cold winter mornings, many of them homeless, their backpacks and wheeled luggage carts heavy with necessities of life on the street.when the doors open at 10 a.m., they rush inside to spend hours reading, resting and using computers to look for work or do other research.“it gets us someplace warm, reasonably safe and we can get work done,” said james short, 51, who regularly meets with two other homeless men in a third-floor conference room to develop a plan that they hope will blossom into a hydroponics business.denver public libraries have long been a haven for the homeless — especially during cold weather — making the facilities an ideal place to link them with referrals to housing and other services. but with the numbers of both regular






hernan perez, 2017 fantasy baseball


it seems to be a weekly activity for me to genuinely question whether the calendar on my phone is accurate. we’re creeping up on the last week of january and the temperature in the northeast has convinced me that in some alternate universe, i’ve already drafted my fantasy baseball teams and opening day is right around the corner. even more terrifying? in this universe, khris davis and chris davis are actually the same player.what keeps me sane chronologically, and prevents me from sending my phone back to apple, is the fact that adp (average draft position) is continually adjusting, and at a higher frequency as more draft data rolls in.instead of boring you to death with simple regurgitation of average draft position data, i decided to pitch the following players based on their minimums an
