1. THE PASSING OF STAN CHAMBERS
We regret to inform you that Holmby Westwood resident, Stan Chambers, passed away last Friday. Stan was a longtime news reporter who worked for KTLA for more than six decades. “Stan Chambers was a newsman in the truest sense,” said L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti in a statement. “His dedication to producing the best story possible led to innovations that define the newscasts we watch today. Stan was a gentleman, a gifted storyteller, and one of those rare L.A. icons whose impact was felt by generations of Angelenos. He will be truly missed.”
The HWPOA Board of Directors would like to extend our condolences to Stan’s wife, Gigi, and all of his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
2. MAIL DELIVERY PROBLEMS
We have received complaints recently regarding the delivery of mail in the neighborhood. If you have had issues with your mail delivery and/or the local post office, please send a note to Janet Turner. Janet is the local deputy for our new US Representative Ted Lieu (who succeeded to Henry Waxman’s seat). She may be reached at the following email address: Janet.Turner@mail.house.gov
