Long Beach Update: August 18th Edition

Long Beach News:

  • I cleaned up the Long Beach City Council Tournament Bracket.  
  • Yes, the democratic primary has been cancelled.
  • I posted this article the other day regarding the lawsuit, but if you missed it: [NEWSDAY]
  • Long Beach Herald gotcha covered on this as well [LB HERALD]
  • and here is a letter from Darlene Tangney, the President of Independent Democratic Club of Long Beach [SEABYTHECITY]

Non-political news, rumors, opinions:

  • I am hearing John Henry’s American Pub is now closed. They were there for 16 years. Really sad to see this place go.
  • CBS news is now talking about the speeding on Lido Blvd.  Some notable quotes: “It’s scary when you’re standing out here [Marvel Icecream] with young children and cars are just racing,” said Liz Murdy of the Lido Beach Civic Association.” “Very dangerous area for pedestrians and kids on their bicycles,” said Lido Beach parent Maureen Graham.”  I just can’t get over how our elected leaders failed when it came to redoing this street. Everything is always on the mindset of the drivers, not paying any attention at to the schools, houses, businesses and beachgoers in that area.  [CBS NEWS]
  • Don’t forget to pick up a copy of Scoundrels by the Sea! New copies are in print [AMAZON]
  • The Mysterious and Tragic Death of Starr Faithfull: This is from Doug Sheer: “Here is an Interesting story about a young lady who was found on the beach in Long Beach.” [The Line Up]

Hi, my name is Anthony. I started to write this humongous post on the [my] state of Long Beach, but I think I’ll hold off posting it until the elections get a little closer. I just want to say that I really strive to remain as independent as I can when it comes to local politics. It’s hard. This city is so political, it makes me sick to my stomach.
