I SUPPORT THE NEW PONTE VISTA

AND I WILL TELL YOU WHY!!!

BY JOHN M. MAVAR

My family has a long history in San Pedro going back three generations, and was influential in creating the city as we now know it. Bringing new people to our town is part of what makes this place so unique.

I’m proud…

My Barbershop

After 45 years in business at the same location on 25th St. and Western Ave. in San Pedro, Henry at Harbor Village Barbers wondered where all his business had gone. Down to one chair with a second barber coming in a couple of days a week, the shop's business was in a downward spiral.

This is a traditional manly man's barbershop. There are no stylists to be found…

How the Mower Saved Detroit

Forget complex business plans, a political overhaul or massive infrastructure projects. Maybe what will help save the crumbling city of Detroit is a rotating set of mower blades.

Detroit has been on the decline, financially and population-wise, for many years for lots of reasons, not the least of which is the troubled auto industry. With numerous abandoned homes and vacant lots dotting the city, it might be difficult to really call Detroit a “city” anymore. Urban blight, maybe, but…

Baby seal looks sick.

I believe that the crew of the vessel should have contacted the Marine Mammel Center in San Pedro or the one in Orange County.  They do great things with ill, malnourished marine life.  They've taken in many little ones this season.  I didn't have the heart to finish the video.  I dearly hope that the little critter had a some chance for surviving its plight. If anyone wants to donate to an ourtrageously worthy cause the Marine Mammel Center located at the old Fort Mac Upper Reservation…
