Huizar Donates New Flag to Veterans Memorial Square

by LA1 News

Council District 14 Councilmember José Huizar has donated a brand-new all-weather nylon US Flag for the Highland Park community. It is his third Flag donation since taking the CD14 office. Huizar was contacted by Historic Highland Park Neighborhood Council President Monica Alcaraz on Thursday afternoon and took action the next day. The Flag was raised on Saturday night by American Legion Post #206 Judge Advocate General Tony Howard and his daughter. The request to Huizar for another Flag came at the culmination of a series of delays and detours in a plan by local community groups to have a properly lit Flag installed at Highland Park Veteran's Memorial Square. The donation comes just in time for Veterans Day, and the Northeast Veterans Day Parade which ends its procession this year at Veterans Memorial Square on November 9.

Highland Park Veterans Memorial Gets Defaced Again

by LA1 News --

The past couple of weeks were relatively quiet when it comes to how popular it can get among the mostly homeless folks hanging out at Highland Park Veteran's Memorial Square. That changed Wednesday morning with the sudden appearance of two separate tags of spray paint graffiti. One person had the nerve to claim the gang "Highland Park" by writing "HLP" in blue paint on the concrete wall of the memorial fountain at the Square and, in doing so, partially covered a portion of the historic bronze panel listing the names of servicemembers from Northeast LA who sacrificed with their lives for the United States in Vietnam.
