Wednesday morning report, Feb. 17

Five things to know this Wednesday morning: 

1.) Tonight's Planning Commission meeting has been cancelled due to lack of quorum. 


2.) DUSD Superintendent Dr. John Garcia will be available to chat over coffee at 6:30 p.m. today at district headquarters. 

The chat is sponsored by the Downey Unified School District and is open to the public. 


3.) A Facebook page is taking predictions for when Firestone Boulevard construction will be completed. (I remember laughing last year when a city official said -- with a straight face -- that it would be completed before Christmas). 


4.) Bastards restaurant is now selling merchandise, including snapbacks and t-shirts. 


5.) 
Downey High's girls basketball team recorded a short promo video in advance of their playoff opener this Friday against Rancho Cucamonga.
