Letters: Big buildings in little Hollywood

Posted by Marla Schevker (Editor) , July 29, 2013 at 11:38 AM Next Previous Slideshow Download In an effort to encourage creative individuals to offer designs for a new stretch of park, the Friends of the Hollywood Central Park (FHCP) released a new feature on its website ( http://www.hollywoodcentralpark.org ) that allows for interaction and creation. People now have the opportunity to create their own versions of the 44-acre park planned for the one-mile stretch of the Hollywood Freeway between Hollywood Boulevard/Bronson Avenue and Santa Monica Boulevard/Western Avenue. According to the FHCP press release, the website, offers numerous possibilities for potential features at the park including cafes, dog parks, libraries and landscaping. Participants are invited to submit their designs to the FHCP board, who will attempt to incorporate the ideas into the final design. Knowing the level of interest in the community about Hollywood Central Park, we decided the best way to get input on what should be built was give everybody a chance to create their dream park, Laurie Goldman, FHCP president, said in a written statement.

Hollywood to renovate Sherman Street Bridge

“The repairs are pretty much concentrated to the extended wing wall that’s at the southeast corner of the bridge,” she said. “The work is expected to take about two months to complete.” Storey said the city is being proactive with the project. “[The bridge] is structurally sound for traffic,” she said. “The repairs are mostly to maintain the stability of the side slope conditions of the bridge, so there is no concern that the main bridge structure is in danger of being structurally unsound or that the road is in any jeopardy.” The city has been trying to secure a contractor for the project since late last year. A bid of $147,520 by H.A. Contracting was rejected by the city.

Utah landscape creates backdrop for Hollywood magic

There are parts of it that feel really remote and are pristinely left alone, said Armie Hammer, who plays Reid, in a recent behind-the-scenes video . The film used three areas surrounding Moab Dead-Horse Point, Castle Valley and Kane Springs and Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park to recreate the Wild West. “It was great to get out on these beautiful locations and not have to say, ‘Oh we’ll paint out those telephone lines, and you know, that road, we can do away with in post,'” Hammer said. “It’s like we’re really out here. And we can shoot in any direction and it works.” The Lone Ranger is the latest of the more than 900 movies and TV shows that have been filmed in Utah, according to the Utah Film Commission .

‘Cole Trickle’ just short of Hollywood ending

“No, he didn’t slam you, he didn’t bump you, he didn’t nudge you,” he said later. “He rubbed you. And rubbin’, son, is racin.'” Much of this while the race was ongoing, mind you. Turns out both Busch and Harrison had cheat sheets with some lines from the film scribbled down. “But most of it,” Busch added, “was from the love of the movie.” Added Harrison: “We studied a little, but we still had cheat sheets.
