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.…

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…Continue
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.”

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…Continue

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…Continue

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…

The students come down for classes in a real stage environment and even put up a life performance at the Warner Grand Theater.

Fifth Sunday of Lent: Ez 37:12-14; Rom 8:8-11; Jn 11:1-45
Today at Mass we hear the story of the Raising of Lazarus. On a surface level this is the story of Jesus raising to life a friend who had died. Jesus is notified about the illness and eventual death of a dear friend and after a short delay, decides to go to visit the family. His…Continue
