Industry analysts are not surprised at LAWA's emphasis on LAX, the agency's crown jewel.

Industry analysts are not surprised at LAWA's emphasis on LAX, the agency's crown jewel. "It was a hard sell," Crowe said. For its part, Los Angeles spent much more than $20 million on ONT. The city of Palmdale took over operations of airport in 2013 but the last commercial service out of the airport was in 2008.

The Phorage team of Perry Cheung, Eric Cho and Jesse Duron began posting interior photos just days ago of what looked to be a pretty expansive location, and now it seems the team is ready to sling some bowls. The new PdR location is dubbed ASAP Phorage , and will be taking over a deli counter area inside the larger market at 303 Culver Blvd. There's also going to be a bit of a menu upgrade at ASAP Phorage, with the addition of noted chef Ulises Pineda-Alfaro .

It is another New Year, and this year I hope to find new things to write about. Much of this town is indeed threatened, and much of this town is gone, and other parts are crumbling away at its' edges. We have within our boundaries, the borders of Westchester, Playa Vista and Playa Del Rey, a place called The Wetlands. But channelized as it is today, it flows to the Pacific unnoticed by most. To Get There --THE CONFLUENCE OF CENTINELA AND BALLONA CREEKS. This area is located just north of and behind the Home Depot store on Jefferson Boulevard.
Phorage, which opened a slightly more ambitious Vietnamese pho and noodle spot in Palms back in July 2013 in the former Chego slot, is close to opening their second location some where in Playa del Rey.
