It's opening day at Dodger Stadium today. Patch file photo.

Whoa-- fellas- you do know the Patch fired almost ALL their editors and now have just a few coveringRead More gee- how many do you have to cover now, Penny? When at first it was 1 maybe 2? This is a case of shoot the messenger. Hey Penny, you are welcome to come over to the East Coast anytime, we give our editors more respect. Now- I must return...for I have a tendency to melt in this part of the country. Just for fun sake ---how about them Red Sox??

Snow, We know and the messenger is AOL! And yeah their style is cheap!
Penny Arévalo (Editor) April 6, 2014 at 01:00 pm
Well, thanks for the respect, Snow (I think). BTW, "fired" is not a appropriate word. TheyRead More were layoffs. And we're no longer owned by AOL. We do have great plans to change up how we cover our territory, but it won't involve losing millions of dollars a year. So we're in transition. I do thank all the readership for hanging with us. That's been very appreciated. Stay tuned! :-)

The marathon is a nice tradition. What s not so nice is the damn fool with the bull horn at theRead More finish line. He begins screaming at 8 am and continues until 3 pm. He wakes up everyone in the building with windows facing Ocean Avenue at the California Incline. Same damn thing every year. I wish he would wait until 9 or 10 am, when the runners actually cross the finish line. My kitties are disgusted. Me too.

I find it kind of funny that a guy named Richard Handy (Dick Handy) would be talking about aRead More reach around ! That could have been one of Cohn's treasured moments !

I find it kind of funny that after Cohn's completely off topic gratuitous comments about oil and hisRead More immature schoolboy reference to women's hygiene, Liz is conspicuously absent. Careful Liz, your bias is showing, and as for you Jeff Cohn, keep it up, you're very entertaining, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
Richard Handy August 21, 2013 at 03:59 pm
Actually, if Cohn was a little more like my name, he could have avoided this conversation allRead More together...

Would not want to walk in the police chiefs shoes on this one. All the ironman participants areRead More local. Didn't a mayor run it at one point? Yet there is a no drinking rule for the beach and Strand. We will have to wait and see the out come of our law enforcements strict policies this year and if they pertain to locals run events as well.

Police should absolutely crack down on the event. They are expecting 1000 people for this year'sRead More event (and I don't believe that they are all locals). The Ironman sets the tone for the rest of the weekend. HB Police can put all of the videos they want on YouTube, but they are competing with videos of people getting drunk and vomiting on our beach during past Ironman events. From what I am told Robert "Burgie" Benz started it. He was on City Council, but no longer lives in the area. At the same time, I think that I read that the event dates back to 1974. I have lived in HB for over forty years and I can tell you that in 1974, we did not thave the problems that we have now with the city being taken over on the 4th of July. Just because it is a tradition, doesn't mean it is a good idea. The City, however, will probably continue to turn a blind eye and play dumb. It's hard to take City officials' statements serious about this year "looking different" when you drive down Hermosa Avenue or open up the local paper to see the event being openly advertised. And, while City Councilmen and the Police Chief are willing to go on record to talk about the changes being made to regain the integrity of our town, I have yet to hear any of them acknowledge the event, let alone address it. It makes their statements irrelevant and self-serving. As long as City officials including our council and the Police Chief refuse to do something about the event, we will continue to be overrun by young people coming to our town to tear it up and party.
