Twenty years ago, Los Angeles County had six giant pairs of scissors for ribbon cutting ceremonies. Four disappeared. The remaining two are closely guarded. This is a day in their life. KPCC

LA County continues to struggle with deficit issues. With cuts left and right, one thing they're not getting rid of is the giant pair of ribbon cutting scissors that they hold near and dear. They have special handlers. And they are stored in special places. Kevin Ferguson--Off-Ramp's Producer--spent the day with one of those pairs from the warehouse to the ribbon cutting and back again.
