Residents - I know most of you know this, but some of our friends and relatives need to be reminded! There is a slow return of door to door magazine sales and contractors pitching their "wares".
I just spoke with a neighbor Jo who had lengthy conversations with both. A young girl, (once again saying what they all do, that she lives "up the street") just sold another neighbor Em, a bogus magazine subscription that "goes to a veteran". By the time the other neighbor Jo tipped her off,…Continue

Over the years I have found that San Pedro has many places that are very eye catching and pleasing. These are really good places for people to get pumped and do a nice workout. Places like the area between Point Fermin and the White Point Nature Preserve offer so much inspiration for a beginning jogger like myself. It's a good length strip next to the street with a view to the ocean, surrounding trees and grass. This is a good place for a beginner to challenge themselves to make it from one…Continue

While most of us know better than to accept/cash something unsolicited, we also know family members and friends who are not always quite as up on these things:
"One of your neighbors recently received a Fed-Ex, overnight envelope (very official in appearance). When she opened the envelope she found a solicitation from a…
