October 30, 2012, SAN PEDRO, Calif. – In an undercover investigation by local news station NBC 4, San Pedro Fish Market and Restaurant was revealed to be only one of two seafood purveyors in the sample studied to accurately label the fish they sell.  The investigation was conducted in response to a letter of complaint sent by more than 500 chefs, 83 from California, to the federal government demanding proper labeling of seafood.

Never Get Off The Boat

I have had a hell of a day. When not on the sailboat in San Pedro with my betrothed, we live in the mountains about an hour east of downtown L.A. It is a nice spread on a hill with the constant sound of serenity from the babbling creek running through the property and if you can't be on the water, there is no better place to be. Considering our proximity to L.A., it is pretty amazing to be living among relatively pristine nature in 2012. But as with all things, particularly the ocean, there…

Posts and Comments from Neighborhood Watch pages

There are many Neighborhood Watch pages for San Pedro on Facebook, thanks in the most part to Councilman Joe Buscaino.

I am taking an interest in all of this, so I want to share a "summary" of sorts of what problems I see reported, that we need to watch for!

One of the most frequent problems in San Pedro: people attempting to get in, ask for something, selling something, borrowing something, looking around, and we've seen so many variations of this.  We have to start…

            When Mackey Ungaro first set up shop selling fresh fish in Los Angeles Harbor in 1957, he likely had no idea that his small enterprise would grow into the multi-million dollar seafood empire the business is today.  Under the leadership of his nephew Tommy Amalfitano, his son Henry, and now his grandchildren, the simple fish market has become a dynasty in the truest sense of the word.

            “San Pedro Fish Market is an original Southern California institution and the…

My first experience with volunteering - for candidate George McGovern

This weekend, former senator George McGovern died at 92. I really didn't follow his politics years ago, or even recently. But I volunteered for his campaign way, way back in the 70's, as a kid just in my last year of high school.

We did phone soliciting, late into the night, and it was my first experience drinking coffee also!

The phones we used were not cordless, and certainly not cell phones. We had great big binders full of old-fashioned green & white printout lists.…

Candy, Trick or Vote

When I was a college cartoonist - I drew a similar political type editorial cartoon a very very long time ago for my college newspaper. I thought I give it another shot.

Fifty years ago...

It's been 50 years since we played chicken with the soviet union. I wrote a little piece awhile back that reminded me of that time...

It's Thursday evening in the barracks, early Fall 1962. The exhaustive housecleaning Marines refer to as "Field Day" is done. The scuttlebutt still smells of the Brasso used to bring its brushed metal and chrome to a shine. The deck of dark brown tile, contrasting with the white bulkheads and green lockers and racks made up with forest green…

Endeavour Brings Out the Best

For some odd reason, I decided to chase down the Shuttle Endeavour as it made its way to it's new home. I rode my bicycle (a great distant - mainly for exercise) - and I ended up at 80th St and Crenshaw. Now, Inglewood has ( to some) a reputation of not being a good place to hang out. Well, what I saw today was a sea of humanity in a very positive light. People were friendly, Moving so others can take pictures, police were posing with children for photos, people were having lawn parties.…

What do skulls mean to you?

A former co:worker friend just asked me that, when she saw a pair of earrings I had just made.

For me, skulls never really meant all that much, until I learned about Dios de los Muertos (Day of the Dead).

I think of my grandmother all the time. The idea of a special day to honor our deceased relatives therefore allows me to pay a special homage to her. She also made me believe in some "weird" possibilities. If ANYONE could visit me from the dead, it was my Mimi. I dream…
