The Dodgers are participating in a campaign by Major League Baseball and PEOPLE magazine to find "People All-Stars Among Us," recognizing individuals who have served their community in extraordinary ways.

That got me thinking... Who are the individuals that deserve a spot on Downtown's All-Star team for their contributions?

Downtown has been changed in amazing ways over the last decade, and that has only happened thanks to the tireless work of numerous people who cared about the neighborhood.

Who are the people who may fly under the radar but are making a big difference in the Downtown community?

Give them a shout out here, and maybe consider nominating them for official recognition as well. Through this Friday, individuals can log on to and submit their Los Angeles All-Star nominations. A group of finalists will be chosen, and then the public will vote on one L.A. winner to be honored at the 2009 All-Star game in St. Louis.
