What does it take to lead a healthy life? How do we build a healthy community? We know we need good clinics and hospitals staffed by skilled professionals to keep us healthy and and treat us when we're not. But it takes a lot more than that. A healthy community has good schools, plentiful park space, healthy food options, minimal pollution, few or no gangs.

Sharing experiences is one way to build a healthier community.…

San Pedro vs. POLA High Softball - Round III

Posted by Jamaal Kellen Street on April 15, 2014 at 10:00pm 0 Comments

On Saturday, February 22, the San Pedro and Port Of Los Angeles High softball teams got together like they have done for the past three years to be special guests for the San Pedro High Girls Softball Association's Opening Day ceremony for the 2014 season.

They took a dual team picture together, and separate team photos. It was one big happy family.

Come Thursday, April 24 however, they will be on opposite ends of a crosstown spectrum that is sure to be entertaining to watch, but don't make the mistake of calling this battle a classic case of 'big sister vs. little…


SPHS Softball Wins Their 13th Consecutive Game

Posted by Jamaal Kellen Street on April 3, 2014 at 11:15am 0 Comments

HARBOR CITY - Last year, the San Pedro High softball team got their 13th victory of the 2013 season on April 27.

The 2014 Pirates are well ahead of last year's pace, since they're now on an incredible roll by earning their 13th consecutive victory with a 9-4 victory over host Narbonne of Harbor City in the Marine League opener for both teams.

Down 1-0 after one inning, San Pedro (13-2 overall, 1-0) would take control with seven-run barrage in the top of the second inning, which was the one inning the Pirates needed on this day to be victorious. It all got started by…

Coastal navigation will be taught by the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary starting Tuesday (April 22) at the Good Shepherd Presbyterian Church in Los Alamitos.

"Most people depend blindly on GPS," said USCG Aux. instructor Doug Conwell, who's scheduled to teach the course, "and, if you haven't kept your position on a paper chart, you're lost (if the GPS stops working)."

Classes will be held every Tuesday for nine weeks from 7 p.m.-9 p.m. The church is located at 11600 Los Alamitos Blvd.

The course is free, but the book and training chart cost $45. Also, students must have parallel rules and dividers, which can be bought at a retail store or from the U.S. Coast Guard Aux. for $12 each.

USCG Aux. 11SR, Flotilla 5-12, Long Beach, is putting on the class. For further information, call Conwell at (562) 304-3497, cell phone; or email him at

Armida Roman Blasts 3 HRs, SPHS Softball Wins 8th Straight

Posted by Jamaal Kellen Street on March 18, 2014 at 1:54am 0 Comments

TORRANCE - It was almost something you'd normally do with regularity if it was a video game.

Except this was real life.

San Pedro High softball senior catcher Armida Roman came up to bat in the top of the fourth inning with one out against host South Torrance just looking to keep the inning going, but with the count 3 balls and one strike, she didn't want to draw a walk like she did her previous time up. So Roman just came up swinging.

And the rest... along with her next two plate appearances, would…


Gone to the Ducks!

Posted by Lee Dworshak on March 22, 2014 at 12:00pm 0 Comments

Now I've had animals roam my backyard wall for many years but today's entry was a real surprise. We've seen possums, skunks, raccoons and more out there but yesterday a beautiful teal headed mallard flew in.

We watched him walk up and down the wall for quite a while from inside the house.  After a couple of hours we went about our chores and the wife even went out back to water the plants.

Out new duck just sat undisturbed and continued his quacking. He didn't seem to be bothered by our presence at all.

I finally took out some bread and set it on the wall but he was pretty fat and didn't seem all that hungry.  I continued to watch him for some time but he just stared out down our backyard slope. He ate a couple of pieces and continued to sit.

Well, I guess enough…


Marina Vitalich Tosses Perfect Game For MSHS Softball

Posted by Jamaal Kellen Street on March 14, 2014 at 2:38am 0 Comments

Two years ago in the first career high school softball start for Mary Star High softball wunderkind Marina Vitalich, Downey Calvary Chapel rocked her for 14 runs (8 unearned) in a game that was called due to darkness, leaving the game tied at 14-14 on March 2, 2012.

From that game on to the present stage, look where Vitalich has came back from now?

Facing the one team that provided Vitalich her worst outing of her legendary career at Mary Star, she would make no mistakes in providing arguably her greatest outing of all time by tossing a rarity not only for the Stars, but for all…


Julia Fuentes Is 2014 Marine League Girls Soccer MVP

Posted by Jamaal Kellen Street on March 13, 2014 at 3:13pm 0 Comments

In just one year of varsity soccer, San Pedro High girls soccer senior forward Julia Fuentes would leave her mark.

Guiding the Pirates to their ninth consecutive Marine League championship, Fuentes would be recognized by a panel of all six Marine League coaches as the consensus 2014 Marine League Player Of The Year.

San Pedro (10-10-1 overall) would take a youthful team under the wing of first-year head coach Elisa De La Pena-Nagle and somehow fight off a tough pre-league schedule along with their own Pirate Cup Tournament to begin their 2013-2014 campaign, and somehow claim…

The 2014 All-San Pedro News Pilot Prep Girls Soccer Team

Posted by Jamaal Kellen Street on March 3, 2014 at 1:30pm 0 Comments

Port Of Los Angeles High girls soccer had another magnificent year in 2013-2014, reaching the CIF-Los Angeles City Section Division III semifinals once again, but LACES ended their quest to become champion for the fourth year in a row, ending the Polar Bears' season at a solid 16-4-4 overall.

Despite that, POLA and junior midfielder Isabela Van Antwerp still made it a season to remember.

Van Antwerp, being anointed co-captain alongside fellow junior midfielder Tiffany Torres, broke out with career-highs in 26 goals and 14 assists, both of which led all San…


The 2014 All-San Pedro News Pilot Prep Boys Soccer Team

The 2013-2014 season is officially over for prep boys soccer in San Pedro, and all three teams gave it their best shot with San Pedro and Mary Star High both making the playoffs, and Port Of Los Angeles narrowly missing the CIF-Los Angeles City Section Division III playoffs.

San Pedro senior forward Daniel Powell made the biggest impact this season, with three different Marine League games where he produced a hat trick, while producing yet another hat trick during the first round of the CIF-LACS Division I playoffs at Monroe of North Hills, where the Pirates won, 4-3 in overtime.…
