Weekly News Roundup – Oct. 28, 2013

Al Gore Skypes with POLAHS Students
Speaking via Skype, former Vice President Al Gore addressed Port of Los Angeles High School students assembled at the Warner Grand Theatre on Mon. Oct. 21. The Nobel laureate was greeted by a cheering audience of teens that he encouraged to be leaders in countering climate change.

Gore also praised both the City of Los Angeles and the Port for efforts to curb carbon emissions. Attended by Congresswoman Janice Hahn and Councilman Joe Buscaino, the event took place one day before the start of the third annual 24 Hours of Reality broadcast, an initiative of Gore’s Climate Reality Project.

Committee Votes to Rebuild Paseo del Mar
An advisory committee voted on Tues. Oct. 22, to build a $28.8 million road and retaining wall reconnecting Paseo del Mar, nearly two years after 600 feet of the scenic highway fell into the ocean after a rain storm and months of slow cracking.

Officials from the Bureau of Engineering presented the White Point Landslide Advisory Committee with options ranging from leaving the landslide area as two cul-de-sacs, to building a road following the dip of the terrain, to building a $51.3 million bridge.

The committee of residents voted for the proposal to fill the slide area with earth and build a road enforced with a retaining wall. City officials said the plan will compete against numerous other projects throughout the city for funding and that the design phase alone could take several years. The site is currently undergoing a $9.14 million cleanup and stabilization effort to be completed in May.

South Shores Burglary Suspect Arrested
A 22-year-old Chino Hills resident was arrested and charged with burglarizing a South Shores home on Oct. 19. Ivan Mantellino, a former student of San Pedro High School, is suspected in several additional area burglaries. Police are looking for an accomplice believed to drive a black Ford Thunderbird.

Angel’s Gate Lighthouse Turns 100
In the same year that San Pedro celebrates its 125th anniversary, one of the town’s icons marked its centennial over the weekend. The Angel’s Gate Lighthouse, known officially as the Los Angeles Harbor Light, had a 100th birthday celebration at Whalers Walk on Sunday put on by the Cabrillo Beach Boosters, the same group that oversaw a $1.8 million restoration of the lighthouse’s exterior last year.

The day featured food, live music, carnival rides and free boat tours out to the lighthouse.

Completed in 1913, the Romanesque five-story lighthouse stands 73-feet-tall at the end of the San Pedro Breakwater. Keepers lived in and maintained the lighthouse until it was automated in 1971. The Cabrillo Beach Boosters are planning a restoration of its interior.
