Odds and Ends 159

This little bit of reporting appeared in The Daily Breeze.
Commercial burglary. Ponte Vista, 11:45 a.m. March 4, 27500 block of John Montgomery Drive. Someone forced entry into the location and took unspecified property.
My attention this past week, has been stolen by the newest news concerning Marymount College's expansion plans.
A proposed ballot measure that could be voted on by registered voters in Rancho Palos Verdes "the city will be spending a lot of taxpayer money dealing with this matter" according to a top elected official in Rancho Palos Verdes Government.
Oh goody.
I got a short and small chuckle driving past the new Denny's and Asaka Grill. Both of them now have some stone facing work on their respective buildings. Coincidence, I think not.
I offered a slightly errant number of weekday trips that a fully completed Marymount College Facilities Expansion Project would have along Western Avenue between Trudie/Capitol and Palos Verdes Drive North.
I stated 1,563 weekday trips, with 40% of those trips passing along Western in that area.
The correct number begins at 1,561.
But then again I failed to mention the 40% of the 1,478 daily vehicle trips, on Saturdays, the completed Project is expected to generate.
I wish someone from the Ponte Vista organization would offer me and others some new information about what is the current status of the project, at this time.
I think I have protected sources pretty well, when they wish to not be identified and I have tried my best to be accurate when a source wishes to be identified.
Is no news good news? As long as folks don't care what the news is, it is probably acceptable.

I'm so glad I found your site. It has more information about local issues and businesses than I see anywhere else. Thanks!

dear debbie:

pontevista.blogspot is indeed perhaps the best news source for the east side of palos verdes and san pedro, more so than the daily breeze, random lengths, or the pv news.
