Harbor lights: Seaside Ice Meltdown

by Harry Munns

Redondo councilman Pat Aust swears he isn’t saying, “I told you so,” when he reminds his fellow councilmen he voted against Seaside Ice, but he could if he wanted to. Back in 2008 when the city began considering a proposal to operate a holiday-season ice skating rink at Seaside Lagoon, Aust didn’t believe it was in the city’s best interest.

Comedy Corner: Kevin Nealon, banjo player

Andrew: You are a South Bay native. What’s the best and worst part of the South Bay?

The cool-weather crops of peas, broccoli, and carrots will be ready soon.

Harbor lights: Boaters’ voice

Title 2. Chapter 9. Article 7. of the Redondo Beach city charter has a simple title, Harbor Commission (HC). The commission was created by Ordinance No. 2327 adopted on March 15, 1982.

The municipal code defines 15 specific criteria for serving on the HC, including a number of professional qualifications such as an attorney, a civil engineer and a real estate broker.
