White's Point Humpback Whale Towed into the Sunset


Los Angeles County Lifeguard Captain Mike Inscore pumped his left fist triumphantly in the air, signaling that the humpback whale carcass had finally come loose from the rocks at White’s Point in San Pedro on Thursday, May 12. High tide was drawing near and the mass of flesh, blubber and bones had given no indication that it was willing to budge, despite the insistent tugs from a powerful Baywatch Cabrillo rescue boat. But now it was floating free from the jagged rocks for the first…

San Pedro High School track dedicated to Sam Domancich

Kuzma Domancich got emotional and simply said "Its beautiful," when the new sign under the scoreboard at Pirate Stadium was unveiled with his brothers name on it. "Sam Domancich Track"

Domancich, who died in January, was instrumental in getting the all weather track financed and added to the new stadium.

On Saturday, 150 friends and members of the community including granddaughters Haley, Holly and Hanna were on hand for a ceremony naming the track after Domancich.…

Humpback Whale to Become Shark Bait

There is now a little less of the beached humpback whale on the rocks at White’s Point in San Pedro. The dead animal has been featured in multiple media accounts, but now it is also destined to star in a show on the National Geographic Channel. Or at least put in a cameo appearance. As shark bait.

The “Ghost Fish” sculpture, a 40-foot blue fin tuna hung from a galvanized steel frame over the water at Berth 73 near Sampson Way, will incorporate aluminum and glass cast objects and artifacts gathered from local fishermen. A solar-powered camera and video screen in the fish’s eye will illuminate, according to an email they sent me.…

What should happen to the San Pedro smokestack off the Harbor Freeway?

On Facebook, the Northwest San Pedro Neighborhood Council asks a great question:


What do you think should happen to the smokestack off the 110 freeway on the sanitation yard, that says "San Pedro"? Remove, keep, fix up?

This caught my attention because I read with some alarm about the…

Whale Killed by Ship Ends Up at White's Point

I didn’t hear the phone ring Sunday morning, but I slowly started to let go of my dreams as I heard fragments of a conversation that ended in “…we’ll be right there. Thanks for reporting it.” My eyes weren’t open yet when Diane said; “that was Matt (Christopherson); a Cabrillo Marine Aquarium volunter reported a dead marine mammal at White’s Point; larger than a sea lion but he can’t tell what it is.”


As we…

Pastor's Message: Third Easter Sunday

May 8, 2011

Third Sunday of Easter: Acts 2:14, 22-33; 1 Pt 1:17-21: Lk 24:13-35

Today’s Gospel has the story of the road to Emmaus. I am always reminded of a poster I had in the confessional of my first parish of an idyllic autumn road with the inscription, “Happiness is not found at the end of the journey, but along the way.” The two disciples were definitely not on the road to happiness. They were walking away from

Jerusalem, confused and dismayed. Only one of them is named,… Continue

Capitalism, democracy and human resources

I’m a small business owner, and like most Americans, I believe in capitalism. There’s no better economic system for taking advantage of every person’s ability to create value for society. Also, like most Americans, I believe in democracy: government by and for the benefit of all citizens; that grants every individual the opportunity to strive for life, liberty and…

Cabrillo Marine Aquarium floating oceanography lab coming up May 15

As soon as we got to the ocean from scenic Alamitos Bay we found a pod of long-beaked common dolphins on last year’s See the Sea, Si? trip aboard the 118-foot RV “Challenger.” Soon we were surrounded by dozens of leaping dolphins.


As fun and exciting as a dolphin encounter is, the experience was not difficult to top during the remainder of the three-hour trip. We pulled up many different species of very…

How did you hear of the assassination of Osama Bin Laden?

How did you hear of the assassination of Osama Bin Laden?

I experienced the news via Twitter!

White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer tweeted just after 9:45 p.m., "POTUS to address the nation tonight at 10:30 PM Eastern Time."

10:30 p.m. on Sunday night? I feared that it could be one of those "there is an astroid headed for Earth" kind of press conferences.

I turned on CNN to hear Wolf…
