Former City Treasurer Ernie O'Dell spent the better part of the past 18 years realizing his dream of building a veterans memorial in Redondo Beach.

Great job Ernie, I even bought a brick along the main entrance God Bless You and all our Veterans

Hi Ernie (hopefully you will read), what a delight to see this article of you on NorthRead More Hollywood-Toluca Lake Patch. I moved to Los Angeles almost 5 years ago from Michigan. It was such a pleasure working with you on the APTUS&C Conferences. I will have to get down to Redondo to see the veterans memorial. It sounds similar to the one we have in Troy, MI. I hope you are enjoying retirement - Denise R.

Hey Johnny Bravo- I have a pit and we have been to Rosie's many time, my pit (Colt) loves the placeRead More and has made many friends. So quit peeing in everyone's Cheerios.

Continuing looking for a job, after hundreds of resumes with no response, and dozens of rejectionRead More letters. Trying to explain people why I can't locate a job even with a masters degree. Losing my house and selling everything inside, and visiting food pantries to feed my children. The feeling of personal rejection is humbling, but I've been able to spend entire days trailing my children to school, the park, and sitting on top of a car: AWESOME!

@rubberband..so true the way you speak of the scared. When my buddy was dying of cancer..I decidedRead More honesty would really work in this situation. So I asked him straight out ( he was still working, playing...living) One day I said to him "how the F;&@ do you live when you're dying"? He giggled and said "Ahhh A Realist"!

Scraps - I agree and would love to see this restoration succeed. I never knew the history untilRead More today. Thanks.

Sad to live without hope or imagination. How do you get through your days? We were lucky enough toRead More be treated to a guided walk by journalist and broadcaster Patt Morrison, who wrote the book about the river, along part of the river and saw the restoration progress with our own eyes. Volunteers help clean up and created lovely walking paths many people enjoy every day.

Apparently it has been some time since Mr. Macadams has spoken to Union Pacific Railroad. LATC (Read More (Southern Pacific Piggyback Yard) also known as The Shops is currently undergoing an expansion. All of the buildings at the Coach Yard have been torn down including The Shops Tower. The Shops is being expanded to actually handle more more cars and trains. If you are familiar with the yard, you can see the changes from either Richmond Street or when you cross over the yard in I5.

Some Angels come to us in human form!.This woman and her son are an inspiration to many and herRead More message sends a good reminder, for us to be grateful to have opportunities to do for others, what we could do for ourselves. lt is too an honor to hear a story of the love in a home and "from a mother's perspective", and so close to the soon to be "Mother's Day". l think for this woman, this last must feel, "as a regular day" as my own Mother always say..." why celebrate for me only one day? ... l am your Mom each and everyday!" So true and so giving is she...we all feel guilty for not doing enough for others when we can. Gloria. Happy Mother's Day every day for you! :-)
What a wonderful story this is great.

Beautiful story - but poorly worded in how it refers to people with disabilities. "TheRead More disabled" refers to people with disabilities as objects ----- please use people with disabilities. Always, the focus should be on the person not the disability. Thanks!!

As a long time member of the PVPLC I really appreciate this recognition of Mr. Ailor.. He has madeRead More history in PV for sure. And also a shout out to the many loyal members who have contributed a LOT of money and sweat equity to bring about this huge asset to the quality of life, not to mention property values, in our communities. Well done and thank you.
robin May 12, 2013 at 08:02 pm
Yes!!! Now if we can only get RHE to STOP the over development..... Another piece of untouchedRead More space, full of trees, now lays empty and just a pile of dirt on Rolling Hills Road. And with this PV Dr N project..... Sucks.... RHE is ruining this hill. Sad state of affairs.

Thank you for this interview. Just moved into the area and already I can see how I can participateRead More in the community. Kudos to Bill Ailors, team and PVPLC.

Hanscom claims that if she had "one more year" they could have stopped the project, butRead More everyone should know that the Lagoon project has been in the works for 20 years. Ms. Hanscom participated in the process for almost that whole time. The EIR was certified in March 2006 and since that time, Hanscom changed her position and began opposing the project. In any case, that seems like more than enough time to halt the project if there was truly any reason to do so. Hanscom has accused hard working people of being “on the take”. None of the State workers or agency personnel have financially benefited from this project. These employees get a regular salary, whether or not they are working at the lagoon. Additionally, the public has volunteered thousands of hours over the 8 month project to help layout plants, weed, conduct fish surveys, and sample water quality providing for a significant cost savings on the project. The project is significantly (millions) under budget.

Hanscom used fear tactics like “traffic would clog PCH and ruin summer business” toRead More raise money and the ire of residents, politicians, and local businesses. But the project exported much less soil than the worst case scenario planned for. Additionally, the State avoided truck trips during peak hours, busy beach days, and required the contractor to minimize all noise impacts. All this work was done while keeping a portion of the parking lot available for public use and providing beach access during the entire construction process, as promised. In contrast, Ms. Hanscom used the above-mentioned fear tactics to raise money from concerned Malibu residents and businesses to line her own pockets. It is questionable if those funds were even tax deductible. Some of these funds were seemingly used for lawsuits and appeals that were resoundingly rejected by the Superior Court. There is the smell a boondoggle but the State promised and delivered on their responsibilities. What about you Ms. Hanscom? By all measures this project has been successful. The intensive studies, scientific review, rigorous engineering, and using science to inform the restoration designers has proven to be the correct way to restore wetlands which have been diminished by more than 90% in southern California.
Cece Stein April 16, 2013 at 11:58 pm
The claims made by Ms. Hanscom and a few others have not come to fruition and those that wereRead More soundly researched and documented in the thousands of pages of studies and design documents have. The restoration will continue to become even more successful as time goes by.
