City Council, staff recognize Kristin Riesgo as the new community service director

MALIBU’S AWARD WINNING NEWSPAPER SINCE 1946

Southern California Edison presents a wild re

To start o the Malibu City Council meeting on Monday night, May 22, the council and members of the public congratulated Acting Community Services Director Kristin Riesgo when she was announced as the permanent director after serving as the interim for nearly seven months.

“We’re absolutely thrilled that she’s formally on board,” Malibu Arts Commission Chair Lotte Cherin said during commission comments.

“I was actually going to save that until the very end of my report, but I’m very happy to announce Kristin Riesgo as our new community service director,” City Manager Steve McClary said to start o his report.

McClary provided an update on the Malibu Blu s Snack Shack, saying the County of Public Health expected the facility and issued the temporary use permit to sell food onsite by this week.

McClary said all parks except the Malibu community pool would be open for Memorial Day weekend.

“We do ask patrons to abide by park rules and remind people that

Despite the cool, drizzly weather, the community showed immense dedication to the topic of safety on Paci c Coast Highway as over 100 individuals gathered for the complimentary outdoor screening of “21 Miles of Malibu” at Blu s Park last Friday night (May 19).

Filmmaker and Malibu resident

Michel Shane decided to make this lm following the death of his 13 year-old daughter Emily Shane back in 2010. She was struck and killed on purpose by a mentally ill driver (now incarcerated) as she walked next to Paci c Coast Highway near the intersection with Heathercli Road. Shane wanted to do something constructive in her memory, and this lm alerting the public to the dangers of PCH in the hopes of bringing about positive change is the result.In a 45-minute program before the start of the lm, Chris Wizner, former president of the Malibu/ Pacific Palisades Chamber of

Commerce, served as the emcee, Scott Tallal was the moderator, and Mayor Bruce Silverstein presented a number of statistics, such as the number of collisions, injuries, tra c citations, and cars on Paci c Coast Highway. For example, he reported that over the past 10 years, there have been 4,000 collisions, including 1,600 with injuries; and 100,000 tra c citations given out.Sgt. James Arens, tra c sergeant for the LA County Malibu/Lost Hills Sheri Station, and Sgt. Chris Soderlund, the new Malibu liaison from Lost Hills, were on hand to talk about public safety on PCH. When

asked what it’s been like to be rst responder to all the carnage on the highway, they both said it takes some getting used to.“I can still see that one kid gurgling in his own blood,” Soderlund said. “We don’t get numb, but we’re there for a job and to see the victim get the justice they deserve.”“A lot of [drivers] out there just don’t care,” Arens said. “ e way they drive, they don’t have respect for others on the road and don’t follow the rules of the road. They’re just worried about getting somewhere fast.” ere was some discussion about the car clubs that drive

ary programs that serve the neediest in our society. In the current context this is merely a frantic e ort to exercise political trickery for a Speaker of the House who is hanging onto his position by the thinnest of margins. Far-right Republicans are not only holding the nation’s economy hostage, but their colleagues as well.

From the publisher HAYLEY MATTSON

In honor of Memorial Day, our office will be closed on Monday, May 29. We pay tribute to the brave men and women who sacrificed their lives while serving our country. Normal operations will resume on Tuesday, May 30. See you at the Malibu Business Round Table next Friday, June 2.

e 18th century French philosopher Voltaire once wrote, “Whoever can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities,” and the Congressional Republican leadership has idiotically set out to prove they are willing to sacri ce not only the American but the global economy just to prove the point.

Although I spent six years as senior sta to the U.S. Senate Budget Committee, there is no way I can either appropriately nor accurately lay out even the broadest outlines of the Congressional Budget process in the short space allowed here. However, the reason for the existence of Appropriations Committees, Budget Committees, and Finance and Ways and Means Committees is to thoroughly consider spending and revenue legislation. ere are formal processes to discern and vote on spending and revenue levels and programs that do not extort the global economy or hold nations hostage to the whims of childish and inane politicians representing grossly gerrymandered Congressional districts who have little or no regard for democratic governance.

According to a report by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities(CBPP), “ e McCarthy bill would cut discretionary programs by $3.6 trillion over the next decade below the Congressional Budget O ce’s (CBO) recent baseline projection. Discretionary programs — also known as annually appropriated programs — are the part of the budget that covers programs such as defense, veterans’ health care, child care and preschool, medical research and public health, food and drug safety inspectors, Pell Grants and college work-study, K-12 education, environmental protection, housing, and some transportation programs, among many others … If they protect both defense and veterans’ health care from cuts, then all other non-defense discretionary programs would have to be cut 33 percent in 2024 and 59 percent in 2025.”

ere is a time and place for everything, even in the halls of Congress. Refusing to pay debts already accumulated would land the ordinary citizen in jail, yet in the contemporary political environment is heralded in Congress as astute politics. It is budgetary terrorism.

Su ce it to say that risking default by insisting on budgetary cuts is proverbially cutting o one’s nose to spite one’s face. It is reckless in the extreme and irts with economic catastrophe. According to a recent paper written by Noah Berman for the Council on Foreign Relations the repercussions for failing to adjust the debt ceiling include “a downgrade by credit rating agencies, increased borrowing costs for businesses and homeowners alike, and a drop-o in consumer con dence that could shock the U.S. nancial market and tip the economy into recession. Goldman Sachs economists have estimated that a breach of the debt ceiling would immediately halt about one-tenth of US economic activity. According to center-left think tank ird Way, a breach that leads to default could cause the loss of 3 million jobs, add $130,000 to the cost of an average thirty-year mortgage, and raise interest rates enough to increase the national debt by $850 billion.”

When looking in the federal budget for places to make signi cant cuts, Republicans over the years have always started with a cocktail of so-called non-defense discretion-

While President Biden certainly has a long history of being a masterful negotiator and his initial proclivity will be to reason with the unreasonable, there are some alternative avenues that are gaining traction amongst progressive Democrats, including a proposal signed by 11 Senators and supported by an increasing number of legal scholars that revolves around Section 4 of the 14th Amendment that says the “validity of the public debt, authorized by law… shall not be questioned.”

Another potential strategy would be to secure enough votes for a discharge petition that forces a vote even if the speaker or key committees don’t want to act. is would require not only every House Democrat but ve Republicans in order to succeed.

However this drama plays itself out, we are dancing precariously on the precipice of a potential economic disaster that will a ect the global stage. at our nation is so hopelessly divided and since the chasm is so wide as to forego even the slightest notion that even a handful of congressmen and women can muster the courage to put policy over politics is a major embarrassment for our nation. Let us hope that integrity will rule the day.

The debt ceiling: repeatedly, Democrats and Republicans raise the ceiling, mortgaging our progeny’s future, and sticking them with the bill to pay for our insane spending. Someone has to pay the bill; shamefully, we seem happy to hand it to our kids. Reagan added $1.86 trillion (with a T), George H.W. Bush $1.55T, Clinton $1.4T, George W. Bush $5.8T, Obama $8.6T, Trump $6.7T. In the rst two years of his presidency, Biden has added $2.4T in debt. As you can see this isn’t a Democrat or Republican problem, rather a huge American problem, a $31 trillion problem. e debt-ceiling law was enacted in 1917, and Congress exercises its Constitutional power in Article 1 Section 8 to reduce de cit spending in exchange for raising the ceiling. Most of the de cit reductions since 1980 have been part of a debt-ceiling increase negotiation. Sometimes Congress will grant a small and temporary increase to allow time for additional negotiations. Spoiler alert: Something like that is going to happen here as well. Biden and McCarthy are putting pressure on each other with the nuclear option of default, but they won’t let that happen. Likely McCarthy isn’t blu ng as much though, as Congress passed a budget with limited increases going forward, reducing the de cit by $4.8 trillion over 10 years. at’s the de cit, not debt, which will still

Don’t buy the alarmist rhetoric of the administration. In 2006, then Sen. Biden voted against raising the debt limit, stating: “Because this massive accumulation of debt was predicted, because it was foreseeable, because it was unnecessary, because it was the result of willful and reckless disregard for the warnings that were given and for the fundamentals of economic management, I am voting against the debt limit increase.” Now as president he calls Congressional demands “really dangerous.”

Our debt is now 129 percent of the GDP, higher than during World War II, the highest in our history. In 1980 it was 32 percent, 1990 54 percent, 2000 55 percent, 2010 90 percent.

e trend is ominous. Ratios above 77 percent can hinder economic growth, put a country at risk of default, and we are in the top 12 of the world for debt as a percentage of GDP.

We will pay $400 billion in interest this year on this monster, which is more than outlays for veterans programs, food and nutrition (SNAP), Social Security disability, federal and civilian retirement, housing, elementary and secondary education, higher education, supplemental social security income, and transportation, COMBINED!

at interest cost each household $3,055, and it would consume all corporate income tax revenue.

As interest rates rise, so will the interest on the debt. A 2 percent increase would increase our annual interest payment to $475 billion.

e Biden budget will increase the debt from $32.7 trillion now to $50.7 trillion by 2033. As the politicians continue to add debt through de cit spending, the Congressional Budget O ce estimates the debt will soar to 225 percent of the GDP by 2050, and paying the interest will rise from the sixth largest line item it is currently to the largest. No wonder a recent Pew

Joe Taxpayer isn’t doing much better. Total household debt in America peaked at $17 trillion this year for the rst time ever. To keep up with the mountains of debt, pressure will grow to increase taxes. In 2011, U.S. tax revenue was 14.27 percent of GDP, but now it is at 19 percent. Our grandchildren will probably pay over 30 percent, much of which will be for the interest of what we are spending on ourselves today. at will depress economic growth, continue to spike in ation, while they struggle to pay their bills. at is just the predictable outcome, not the frightening one. e last time we had debt approaching the current sad state was during WWII. We borrowed heavily, all resources going to the war e ort, as we defended our national sovereignty. It was necessary.

Now imagine a real war breaks out again, or a truly horrible pandemic. We would nd ourselves in true need to generate money by borrowing, but unable to do so because we had already fully leveraged the country. We would be like the family who has taken out a second on their home, maxed out their credit cards, and has an emergency that they have no resources to draw on. ey are bankrupt. Countries don’t go bankrupt, they default, resulting in worthless currency, collapsed economies, and social unrest. Politicians and bankers are hand-wringing that we could default now due to a political impasse, but if they don’t eliminate the de cits, the default will be a real for our progeny, and partisan rhetoric won’t x it. Pay now, or pay later.

City of Malibu prepares for busy summer season to keep PCH, canyons, and beaches safe

With the upcoming Memorial Day weekend signaling the start of the busy summer season, Malibu can expect large numbers of visitors, and the city is working with partner agencies to help keep Paci c Coast Highway, (PCH), canyon roads, beaches and trails safe and clean for all to enjoy.

“We urge all visitors who come to enjoy Malibu’s natural beauty to help keep our roads and beaches safe and clean and honor our e orts to protect our community’s safety, peace and quality of life,” Mayor Bruce Silverstein said.

e city encourages residents and visitors to help keep PCH, canyon roads, beaches and trails safe and clean with these messages on social media, with the hashtag #SafeSummerMalibu:

Don’t drink and drive — designate sober drivers and use rideshares or taxis.

Keep your eyes on the road — don’t text and drive.

Slow down and watch for pedestrians and cyclists on PCH and cars pulling in and out of beach parking.

Pack it in, pack it out — dispose of your trash in trash containers, and if you see litter, please pick it up and throw it away in a trash container.

Alcohol, dogs, and res are prohibited on beaches in Malibu.

The city coordinates annually with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department (LASD), Los Angeles County Department of Beaches and Harbors, California State Parks, Mountains and Recreation & Conservation Authority (MRCA), and the California Highway Patrol (CHP) to prepare for summer crowds.

e city funds the LASD Beach Team annually from Memorial Day to Labor Day. e beach patrols are an important way to address alcohol consumption on the beaches, which is illegal and contributes to drunk driving on PCH and canyon roads. Extra tra c o cers are also in place to address safety issues on the road.

e MRCA double patrols in its parks from Memorial Day to Labor Day. State Parks will have seven-day coverage and will put extra e ort

into addressing litter. Beaches and Harbors will increase sta ng to assist with parking, maintenance, and trash on the beaches and beach parking lots.

Every summer, the city also requests additional patrols by LASD and the Sheri ’s Volunteers on Patrol (VOPs). e VOPs are crucial for parking enforcement to ensure beach access and keep the roadways safe, they monitor and report crime and emergencies, and they help direct tra c and ensure safety at accident sites.

Although the city does not control access to the state and county beaches in Malibu, the city wants to reassure the Malibu community that it is working with its partner agencies on messaging to visitors to Malibu about the importance of keeping PCH, canyon roads and beaches safe and clean for all.

Residents can request assistance from CHP with street racing by calling (323) 259-3200. Report suspected intoxicated drivers by calling 911. Residents may sign up for the city’s emergency and tra c alerts (go to malibucity.org and scroll down to “Alert Center”).

In an e ort to streamline its emergency communications processes, and in light of the abundance of tra c news and information readily available to the public, the city will now be providing tra c alerts only during business hours for full road closures (not lane closures), in case of emergencies, or in case of planned or extended closures (such as road or utility projects).

e city will also discontinue the Nixle alerting service, which is redundant since Nixle was bought by Everbridge, the system that Malibu uses for disaster noti cations. All Nixle subscribers have been merged into the Everbridge system, and will still receive alerts from the city. Eliminating the Nixle system will reduce the time and number of steps it takes to put out emergency messaging.

e city will continue to use the website alert system for lower-level emergencies, tra c incidents, utility advisories, and beach advisories by text and email to subscribers when necessary. To sign up for website alerts, or add or remove alert subscriptions, visit the webpage malibucity.org and scroll to “Alert Center.”

For more information about the city’s alerting systems, and to sign up, visit the webpage malibucity. org/emergency-notifcations.

Malibu Creek State Park trial for Anthony Rauda continues

e prosecution has started presenting its case against Anthony Rauda, who is accused of the slaying of Tristan Beaudette at Malibu Creek State Park. Rauda is on trial for the shooting death of Beaudette, who was murdered while camping with his two young daughters in 2018.

During the second week of trial in a Los Angeles courtroom, testimony was heard from a man who had been camping in a trailer at the park in 2016. e witness claimed he was awakened late at night by an apparent gunshot. He then said he found a hole caused by a bullet in his camper’s wall. Witness Ron Carson said he found buckshot and “debris everywhere.”

ere were as many as 10 reported shootings in the area in the two years prior before Beaudette was found fatally shot in his tent. Rauda waived his right to attend the trial after being convicted of assaulting two o cers during pretrial hearings.

He also faces 10 counts of attempted murder related to the earlier reported shootings and ve counts of burglary in nearby businesses.

from a horrible disease. My requiem took shape in that moment. It became a catalyst for pain, a way to cope, a path for hope in light of hopelessness. It is my letter to that child and to every human who has su ered misunderstanding and loss.

“For the ‘Caritas’ concert we want to honor all those who sacri ced so much working through the COVID pandemic. All the horrible things we’ve gone through.”

“[ e founder and artistic director of Artes Vocales, Dr. Steven Kronauer] thought it would be a tting mass in a secular and sacred sense as a catalyst for change, a catharsis, something that helps to rid one of pain and yet recognize it at the same time,” Newman commented.

“ e program is called ‘Caritas’ which means dear ones. ese are the people who have taken care of us during this time. Artes Vocales wants to honor the caregivers that may have already been forgotten. First, we were banging pots and pans to honor them. e caregivers were heroes and then soon they sort of got lost as time passed. ey were so beloved. en when the pandemic continued, in frustration, I think a lot was taken out on them.

“ e whole program honors di erent sets of caregivers, from mental health, hospice, re ghters who put their lives on the line, who went in without thought for themselves; researchers who helped to nd treatments and this is over the decades, not only what we’ve been through in the past three years and surely what we’ll go through in the future.”

RCD’s ‘WiLD CiTY!’ workshop series o ers experiences in county’s wildspaces

e Resource Conservation District of the Santa Monica Mountains has announced its rst-ever community workshop series, WiLD CiTY — a set of hands-on immersive experiences within LA’s wildspaces guided by the group’s team of experts. e RCD has led enrichment programs for thousands of students since 1964, providing access and insight to local natural areas, and we now hope to share this unique opportunity with a wider audience, o ering an enriched lens into our shared LA ecosystem.

roughout this six-part community workshop series, participants will experience wildspaces across Los Angeles County guided by professionals in environmental and creative elds. ey will receive handson training with fundamental scienti c practices, including water quality testing, bird presence, and diversity surveys, invasive species removal, and plant identi cation as well as immersing themselves in creative experiences with both watercolor scienti c painting and nature journaling — all set within the backdrop of some of LA’s most scenic natural areas. Following each workshop, there will be an optional opportunity to further engage with fellow workshop participants and leaders at nearby co ee shops, cafes, breweries, tasting rooms, and wineries.

is series will take place on select Saturdays in May through June 2023. Space is limited, so be sure to reserve your spot via our website at rcdsmm.org/wild-city-workshop/

Apply for Woolsey

Fire Rebuild Fee waivers before June 30 deadline

e city continues to work to help Malibu residents rebuild homes destroyed in the devastating Woolsey Fire and urges homeowners to submit applications for rebuild fee

Newman noted that these topics can be controversial to some but stated, “Music is not about politicizing anything. is is thanking the people who stayed with patients as they were dying, people who became their surrogate families during their hospital stays, people who tried so hard to keep patients connected to their families who could not visit, neonatal workers, and those on the frontlines. is concert is to celebrate what these people so sel essly did for the rest of humankind.”

Kronauer, an opera singer who spent years in Europe performing and who now lives in downtown LA, echoed Newman’s words.

“I remember banging pots and pans outside our windows to thank our healthcare workers during the lockdown,” he said. “I was also spurred by the story behind Maria’s work, which so brilliantly invokes and inspires Caritas — the Latin word encompassing charity, compassion, generosity of spirit, willing what is good for another. We thought this is a great idea to reignite our thanks for those who take care of us.

“Interspersed between the movements of Maria’s gorgeous mass there are various solos of other music including Bernstein, Brahms, a Broadway piece and various eclectic solos featuring wonderful musicians including Newman’s daughters Martha and Isabella atcher. It’s an eclectic program. It’s going to be stunning. It’s going to be an extremely powerful afternoon.”

City of Malibu demonstrates e ective brush clearance techniques for re safety

As wild re season approaches, the City of Malibu is emphasizing the importance of consistent and thorough brush clearance to protect homes and slow the spread of res. e city’s re safety liaisons are currently conducting annual brush clearance on the slopes above City Hall and using the opportunity to create a demonstration plot showcasing e ective techniques.

e demonstration plot highlights how native and non-native vegetation can be blended to enhance slopes, making them re-safe during re season while providing excellent erosion control during the rainy season. e technique involves reducing the volume of vegetation, trimming the limbs of the lower one-third of shrubs, and cutting limbs from the bottom 6 feet of trees. A mosaic pattern is created, retaining some vegetation to prevent erosion and leaving gaps between bunches of vegetation to limit the spread of horizontal res.

Most Malibu residents will receive brush clearance notices from the Los Angeles County Fire Department ahead of the June 1 deadline. For more information on brush clearance and re safety, please email FireSafety@MalibuCity.org or call (310) 456-2489.

Optimist Club of Malibu awards $1,000 scholarships

Distinguished students from Malibu High School, Viewpoint, and Oaks

Christian recognized for their achievements

This year, the Optimist Club granted scholarships of $1,000 to a total of 11 students. Out of these recipients, nine students were from Malibu High School, while one student each hailed from Viewpoint and Oaks Christian. For the past 60 years, the Optimist Club of Malibu has been presenting scholarships to graduating seniors. Initially, the scholarships began with a value of $100, but they have now been raised to $1,000 per recipient. roughout the span of 24 years, the Optimist Club of Malibu has generously distributed a sum of $294,000 in scholarships. Notably,

among the bene ciaries was Henry Stern, our former State Senator, who was granted a scholarship in the year 2000.

On May 18, this year’s award ceremony took place in the Jones Trophy Room at Pepperdine. e event was attended by 10 out of the 11 distinguished recipients, accompanied by their parents. Notably present were Patrick Miller, Linh Snyder, Cindy Smith, and Katie Dahm from MHS (Malibu High School), along with Isaac Burgess, the executive director of Malibu Pathway.

“We were very proud of all of the students that we selected this year,” Scholarship Program Chair Marie Wexler said. “ ey have all worked so hard to be wellrounded.”

In order to be eligible, the student must either be: 1. A resident of the 90263, 90264, or 90265 zip codes or 2. A graduating senior of Malibu High School or 3. e son or daughter

of a member in good standing of the Optimist Club of Malibu. However, there is no preferential treatment for the children of club members.

Regarding the decision-making criteria, one-third of the scoring is based upon the student’s Grades 9-12 Grade Point Average, including the 1st Semester of their Senior Year; one-third of the scoring is based upon the student’s extracurricular activity, and onethird is based upon the student’s community service activity.

A Committee of Club Members reviews each application received, and each applicant is scored between 0-25 on extracurricular activity and 0-25 on community service. Once they compile the scores, they meet to review the results and discuss any scoring issues. is year, the Committee included ve members: Margaret Hauptman, Dr. Sam Bruttomesso, Bonnie Lockrem, Frank Brady, and Marie Wexler.

through Malibu on weekends. e sergeants agreed that even though there are a lot of “pricy, powerful cars” on PCH, “speed is the number one factor in almost every accident.”Well-known local car enthusiast Fireball Tim Lawrence said, “I think the problem we have now is shared across the nation post-COVID — it’s angst. Don’t get in your car when you’re mad. A certain level of awareness has to change.”“We’re blessed to be in Malibu and we point out all the idiots,” Lawrence continued.

“But there are programs we can adopt and there are things we can do. I implore each one of you to think about your own level of awareness [when driving] and

what you can do as an individual. ere have been seven accidents in front of my house in the last three weeks.”During the audience Q&A, many didn’t have a question so much as the desire to relate their own experience about something horri c that happened to them or that they saw happen on PCH. Everyone seemed to have a story. One person asked the sergeants what area on PCH was the most dangerous. And their answer is that it’s basically the eastern half of Malibu, where the road is a little windy and “people don’t want to drive 45.” Tra c statistics show that probably the very worst area for accidents is the intersection at Las Flores Canyon Road

and PCH.Others complained that Caltrans creates dangerous situations on the highway, especially now at the site of the Trancas/PCH bridge replacement project, where there have been several recent accidents, including a ve-car pileup last week, due to narrow lanes, K-rails, and poor signage.Arens volunteered that he “has no problems contacting Caltrans” about dangerous situations that they create, and has done so before. He urged anyone seeing a road hazard created by Caltrans to call him at (818) 878-5555 and report it; and/or send a photo to him at jcarens@ lasd.orgMany say the “21 Miles” lm should be seen by everyone

in Malibu. Several anonymous comments and reactions to the lm are posted on its website. One said, “I saw it twice. After the rst time,I had to walk away for a couple of days, it is heavy. [It’s] so important, it needs to be seen as widely as possible. If somehow it can move the people who can actually do something to change this highway as much as it moved me, [it has] succeeded.”Others said, “It’s a transformative lm, because once you see it you will never look at or drive on PCH the same way again” and “ is lm has the potential to change this deadly road and save countless lives.”“21 Miles in Malibu” was produced by Shane Gang Pictures — Producer

Michel Shane, Director

and is described as “a hybrid of personal stories of loss, the history of a loved place, and a cautionary tale of government indi erence and citizen activism.”“21 Miles” has been featured in a number of

trade magazine articles, premiered on Feb. 16 at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, and won Best Safety Film and Video at the Houston International Film Festival 2023. It can be watched by renting or purchasing it on Amazon’s Prime Video.

and Harbors started with the program in 2020 as a beach management entity advising ASBPA on feasibility information, and o cially entered the program as a pilot site in 2021 when the international jury reviewed their Gap Analysis.

“We’re thrilled and honored that the Westward Beach portion of world-famous Zuma Beach will y one of the rst Blue Flags in the United States,” Director for the County of Los Angeles’s Department of Beaches and Harbors Gary Jones said. “ e Blue Flag will provide visitors with extra assurance that we are responsibly caring for our coast.”

As part of the international program’s mission of sustainable development through environmental education, awarded sites will be o ering educational activities to the public. Programming details for local activities will be posted on their respective sites’ information boards. e Blue Flag will be raised during a public ceremony on ursday, May 25, at 2 p.m. near the Westward Beach restrooms, and will y over Westward Beach from May 25 through Sept. 30, 2023.

Internationally, the Blue Flag has been awarded to more than 5,000 beaches, marinas and tourism boats from 50 countries. Blue Flag is an international awards program that promotes environmental education and information; environmental management; safety and services; social responsibility; and responsible tourism. To be considered for the award, Westward Beach had to meet more than 30 criteria in those categories. For more information, visit blue ag.us.

Malibu Planning Commission approves summer tow-yard

City plans to store 31 impounded cars at school’s lower parking lot

Following an extensive deliberation on permits, accountability, and the pressing nature of the matter, the Planning Commission has granted approval for the temporary towyard at the Malibu Middle and High School Campus during their meeting on May 15.

From May 27 to Sept. 4, city o cials have devised a plan to utilize the lower parking lot adjacent to Morning View Drive at the middle school for the storage of up to 31 impounded cars per day during weekends and holidays, speci cally spanning from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day weekend.

During the Public Safety Commission meeting held on Sept. 7, 2022, the commissioners engaged in a comprehensive discussion concerning various possibilities for establishing an impound yard during the summer months. After careful deliberation and consideration of previous endeavors, the Commission reached a decision to establish an Impound Yard Ad Hoc committee. This committee’s primary objective will be to investigate potential locations for both a permanent impound yard and a temporary impound yard speci cally designated for the summer of 2023.

Public Safety Liaison Luis Flores attended the meeting to answer the commission and public speakers’ questions.

“ e actual goal of setting up the temporary impound yard is a public safety commission project that is an annual project, but this was brought forth by the Public

Safety Department because this is a project that we’re pushing forward in partnership with the Sheri ’s Department as well as the Public Safety Commission,” Flores said.

Vice Chair John Mazza raised concerns about the permits, planning coordination, and who would be liable if an accident were to occur on campus, the school district, or the city.

“We don’t see any record that the school district has even approved this or even applied,” Mazza said.

“If I were the school district, I would be a little nervous saying the school is liable.”

Public Safety Commissioner Chris Frost spoke during public comment and has been involved

with finding a location for a permanent tow-yard for a few years.

“I agreed with the resident who said, ‘We need a permanent solution to this problem,’ this has been going on three-four years now, and the public safety commission has been tasked with nding a place for it and trying to get this together...and because things take so long, sometimes it ends up sounding like it’s last minute when in reality it started in the previous summer,” Frost said. “We cannot go through summer without a tow operation.”

Frost said he hopes they start planning earlier to nd a permanent solution.

“We actually have these problems throughout the year, but summer ramps up the problems exponentially,” Frost said.

Public Safety Commissioner Josh Spiegel also commented during public comment and hopes the commission will approve it.

“Clearly, the best site is Malibu High School; this is where it has been for years and years; the last couple of years, we had to use other sites—this is the logical place,” Spiegel said.

Last year, the Malibu City Council made a decision to permit a temporary day-use impound yard on City-owned property situated at the intersection of Heathercli Road and PCH. The primary

objective of this initiative was to address the issue of vehicles being unlawfully parked in front of re hydrants, obstructing tra c lanes, and blocking driveways, thereby posing risks to public safety, tra c ow, and the overall well-being of the community. Given the necessity to have the impound yard operational during the bustling summer beach season, an urgency ordinance was enacted. e selection of the speci c location was the result of an evaluation by the Public Safety Commission, which considered numerous alternative sites and properties, including Malibu City Hall, which could not accommodate large atbed tow trucks due to its steep driveways.

Commissioner Skylar Peak motioned to approve the proposal, and Commissioner Je Jennings seconded the motion.

Commissioner Kraig Hill and Mazza abstained, stating they felt that the city permits transferred legal liability to the school district.

“I am very much in favor of this project; I am going to abstain because the liability of the is not proportional to the risk,” Mazza said. Motion carried 3-0. e next planning commission is scheduled for Wednesday, May 31. One of the key items on the agenda will be the Malibu Inn Motel hearing. For further details and access to the agenda, visit malibucity.org/agendacenter.

barbecues, alcohol, and reworks are prohibited in city parks,” McClary said.

Mayor Bruce Silverstein motioned to move item 6.A, Malibu Library Set Aside Fund for Fiscal Year 2023-2024, to the next meeting.

Sarah Flores, the City of Malibu’s new emergency service coordinator, presented the proclamation declaring June 10 as Public Safety Responder Appreciation Day in Malibu. e city will be honoring public safety responders during the Public Safety Expo on June 10.

During council updates, councilmembers congratulated Riesgo for her new position.

Councilmember Marianne Riggins asked Interim City Attorney Trevor Rusin to respond to the accusations made towards Planning Commissioner Skylar Peak, who was accused of con ict of interest for doing electrical work this year on a house that he approved construction of ve years earlier, in 2018.

“ e owner that did hire Commissioner Peak was not the owner at the time the application was approved,” Rusin said. “As a result, there was no violation of the political form act; there is no nancial bene t, promise, or paid commission to Commissioner Peak in exchange.”

Rusin added that current and former councilmembers had recused themselves from certain situations.

“Just knowing an application or being friendly with someone does not require recusal, but if someone is closed friends with an applicant, such that they couldn’t be a fair decision maker, then recusal would be proper,” Rusin said.

“I feel honored to have been able to appoint Commissioner Peak to the Planning Commission, he brings a wealth of experience in our community, his proven environmental concern, and his knowledge of the community is invaluable in his role as a planning commissioner,” Riggins said. “I’m really disappointed that there are members in the community that are choosing to attack him and his ability to continue to work for our community in a fair and balanced manner.”

Councilmember Doug Stewart motioned to add the Local Coastal Program amendment consideration for the Sea View Hotel at the June 12 meeting.

During the City Council meeting on April 24, the council motioned to take no action and give no direction to this sta at that time.

Motion carried with a 4-1 vote to bring back the item.

Assistant City Manager Joseph Toney presented the Proposed Budget for Fiscal Year 2023-24. e budget includes the development process and calendar, direction and modi cations, revenues and expenditures, department changes, general fund grant recommendations, and an overall summary. e sta hopes to adopt the budget on June 24. Council provided adequate direction to the sta to close the item. To view the Proposed Budget for Fiscal Year visit

Public Works Director Rob DeBoux presented the Assessment District 98-1 (Big Rock Mesa) and conduct the Public Hearing; and 2) Adopt Resolution No. 23-22 levying an assessment for the maintenance, repair, and improvements works, systems, and facilities pertaining to Assessment District 98-1 (Big Rock Mesa) for Fiscal Year 2023-2024. Council motioned to adopt the resolution.

DeBoux also presented Assessment District 98-3 (Malibu Road) and Assessment District 98-2 (Calle Del Barco). Council motioned to adopt the resolution.

e council moved on to appeal no. 22-006 and 22012 — Appeals of Planning Commission Resolution No. 22-46 (33650 Paci c Coast Highway; Owner: Charals Haagan; Appellants: 180 PCH, LLC and the Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority.

e item was continued from May 8.

e summary of the appellant’s reasons for the appeal include a blu top setback determination for the project fails to conform to LCP LIP sections 10.4 (d)(1) and (2) and the applicant’s consulting engineer’s interpretation of the location of the top of the blu is contrary to establish the law.

The recommended action is to adopt Resolution No. 23-26, determining the project is categorically exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act, denying Appeal Nos. 22-006 and 22012 and approving Coastal Development Permit No. 19-073 for construction of a new one-story, 6,567-square-foot single-family residence plus a 1,723-square-foot basement, 1,375-square-foot detached garage, 720-square-foot detached secondary dwelling unit, 412-square-foot tennis cabana, tennis court, swimming pool, spa and grading, and installation of a new onsite wastewater treatment system; including Demolition Permit No. 22-008 to demolish an unpermitted driveway, fencing, and landscaping located in the Rural Residential, TwoAcre zoning district located at 33650 Pacific Coast Highway (Haagan).

According to the report, MRCA’s decision contradicts the public access provisions of the Coastal Act and Malibu’s LCP. Failure to require a lateral easement for public recreational activities limits the public’s ability to move along the beach and PC’s refusal to include a lateral easement subverts the intentions of the Coastal Act and the Malibu LCP.

After Silverstein asked the geologists multiple questions about the project and the council addressed the lateral easement for public access, three of ve council members motioned to approve the project, carrying a 3-2 vote.

“I hope the Coastal Commission doesn’t reverse this because it looks like a beautiful plan, and I think you’re going to love living there if you get to put the house there,” Silverstein said. e next city council meeting is scheduled for Monday, June 12.

Award-winning TV chef Sandra Lee lists oceanfront PCH home near Big Rock

Multiple Emmy-winning TV chef and cookbook author Sandra Lee, 56, has listed her oceanfront home for $7.5 million — more than twice what she paid for it just over three years ago, according to Dirt. Located at 19620 Paci c Coast Highway, the property is also available for long-term lease at $42,500 per month.

Originally built in 1948, the 1,719-square-foot one-story house with three bedrooms and three baths features formal rooms, outdoor deck and access to 75 feet of beach frontage. Her remodel gave it a “glam” interior look with crystal chandeliers, mirrors, glass, and white walls.

Probably best known for her “semi-homemade” cooking concept, Lee acquired the property shortly after splitting with longtime partner Andrew Cuomo, governor of New York from 2011-21. During her career, she’s been the creator and host of shows on Food Network, Cooking Channel, HGTV and Great American Country, has written 27 books, and been a national spokesperson for numerous charities.

Later in the presentation, Chu only said any undergrounding would take place in high re zone areas, but never mentioned if Malibu was targeted. Many Malibu residents have called for undergrounding electrical wires over the years but the utility had always claimed it was cost prohibitive, takes longer to implement (as long as four years compared to covered conductors that can be deployed in less than two years), and would make repairs untenable. Again, without mentioning Malibu speci cally, Chu said severe risk areas are being considered for undergrounding.

MHS Swim has a season to remember

Sharks close season strong, records are broken and team represented in the CIF Division 3 Championships

The Malibu High School swim team is celebrating a successful season with strong performances across the whole team and highlighted by some exceptional individual e orts.

e boys varsity team closed the season with a strong second-place nish at the Citrus Coast League Championships, while the girls varsity team came in third.

e season showcased impressive e orts from student athletes Filip Kurial, Vanessa Clarke, Tallula Muphree, Jake Sichta, Eros Brunel, omas Drummond, Nico Marazzi, Ryder Lippman, and Costes Jensen among others.

Malibu High School head swimming coach Michael Mulligan praised his teams for their hard work that allowed them to compete at the highest level.

“Being a coach, their coach, is so rewarding,” he said. “Being able to see the kids put in their best e orts, achieving their goal times from the beginning of the season, and improving their pre-season times, it’s pretty special.”

He said he believes the team created a culture of support, discipline, and fun.

“It was such a fun team to coach. ey have a lot of team spirit, they had a lot of fun at practice, and always cheered each other on in practice,” Mulligan said. “Our seniors and upperclassmen led the way, encouraged, and supported our younger swimmers,”.

MHS senior and team captain Vanessa

Clarke explained the importance of Mulligan’s support and leadership.

“Coach Mulligan leads the greatest and loudest pre-meet psyche-cheers!,” she said.

“He is always pushing swimmers to be their absolute best. He has been a very loyal coach, having been at MHS for several decades, and we are very lucky to have him.”

Clarke led by example as a senior, competing at the highest level. She won the 100 freestyle league championship and bested her previous time by .10. She ended up in third place for the 50 freestyle at leaguenals, just .01 from second place. She went on to represent MHS at the CIF Division 3 Championships, where she

quali ed for the 50 free nals with a new personal best time, and took 16th overall.

Clarke re ected on her strong season and said she was proud to have all her hard work pay o .

“Since I was 6 years old, I have been training year-round, several days a week for this moment, so achieving success was truly

rewarding,” she said. “When you lofty set goals, it has a motivating impact, and you constantly want to compete at your best.” Despite her individual success, Clarke applauded her team for their commitment to improvement and success.

World class Malibu dancer returns from Russia

Adrian Mitchell set to perform in Santa Monica this Friday

One of Malibu’s most celebrated dancers is set to perform in Santa Monica Friday night in a triumphant return after years in Russia.

Adrian Blake Mitchell made quite a mark in his formative years studying ballet locally with JoAnna Jarvis at the old Ballet by the Sea Studio and then the Malibu Academy of Dance. While attending Malibu Middle and High schools from the sixth through ninth grade, his masterful talent and dedication to the art caught the attention of a few Malibu families who were so impressed they gave the young artist scholarships to pursue his talents first in New York City and finally in Russia. Mitchell, who said he’s always had a love of Russian culture, moved to St. Petersburg, Russia, in 2014 to study at the world-renowned Vaganova Academy. The nearly 300-year-old school was once training grounds for George Balanchine, Anna Pavlova, Mikhail Baryshnikov, and Rudolf Nureyev, “some of the most famous dancers in Russian history,” according to the dancer, who told The Malibu Times , “I always dreamed of going there, studying there, because it’s the home of ballet.”

He then joined the prestigious Mikhailovsky Theatre, which he called

This is my Malibu, and it freaks me out!!!

Plug “Malibu” into the “Locations” search box on IMDB.com and you’ll get back over 3,000 hits. Proximity to Hollywood, perfect light, variety of scenery, and other factors have made Malibu an ideal place to shoot commercials, documentaries, TV movies, TV series, and feature lms from “Cohen Collects a Debt” (1912) to “American Badass: A Michael Madsen Retrospective” (2021). ere’s a long list of shows that Malibu citizens should watch, but here are three for starters.

1. “Don’t Make Waves” (1967): In the novelization to “Once Upon A Time … In Hollywood,” Tarantino mentions this “silly comedy” as one of Sharon Tate’s rst lm roles.

“Don’t Make Waves” is indeed a silly comedy set in a Summer of Love Malibu —

an alchemy of hipsters and squares where citizens kvetch about paying $100,000 for a Malibu house. (1967’s $100,000 would be $840,987.89 in modern dollars, but still …)

Tate’s bodacious beach babe Malibu rescues

Tony Curtis from drowning and shocks his heart maybe too much with some mouthto-mouth resuscitation. at leads to a twisted web of sex triangles and quadrangles with Tate, Curtis, Claudia Cardinale, muscleman Dave Draper, Robert Webber, and Joanna Barnes all getting emotionally mixed and tangled up.

A goofball firestorm, “Don’t Make Waves” rages from deep in the hills and dales of Malibu down to the beaches and bedrooms. Johnny Fain is visible. Jim Backus does an “as himsel e” cameo, and throws down some Mr. Magoo. It’s a lot of silly fun.

Watching the lm, you might see yourself or your house or your neighbor’s house in it. Ten points if you can identify where the silly car accident happens at the beginning. Anyone? Anyone?

2. “Malibu Beach Party” (1940): Where the swells meet the swells. In this “Merry Melodies” spoof Jack Bunny (Jack Benny) sends out invitations to a beach party at

his Malibu cottage and gets a procession of A-listers in response — many in costume. ey politely sneak away as Jack Bunny plays the violin and the whole eight-minute cartoon is a sight gag on famous actors and actresses and their characters and quirks. If you don’t have Tarantino’s encyclopedic movie memory and need help identifying the movie stars parodied, IMDB lists them in order of appearance.

3. Beyond the Valley of the Dolls (1970): “ is is my happening baby, and it freaks me out!” Sound familiar? Austin Powers stole that line from this very weird and wild, sex, drugs, and rock and roll spoof of “Valley of the Dolls.” Written to his eternal fame and shame by esteemed lm critic Roger Ebert and directed by mammarithmetician Russ Meyer, BTVOTD features lesbian sex scenes, a trans character, and lots of lewdity and nudity — much of it cut to dodge an X rating. e freaked out Ronnie “Z Man” Barzell was inspired by now-infamous record producer Phil Spector, and much of the movie — including the bloody and bizarre grand nale — takes place in a West Malibu beach house you might recognize. is movie is whack. Don’t miss it.

Burt’s Eye View: Oh, Mr. Sun

PERSPECTIVE By

Okay, that’s enough! I’ve had it! I can’t take it anymore! WHERE THE HELL IS MY SUN?

Now let’s all be honest. We did not land in Malibu by accident. We either moved here or decided to stay here because of Mr. Sun. Yes, Southern California used to be known for its sunny weather. You could bank on it. And that is exactly what many of us did.

We took funds out of our bank account and bought expensive homes here so we could luxuriate in the sun. You remember the sun, don’t you?

I recall many decades ago when Hugh Hefner, Playboy’s publisher, was on the Johnny Carson show. (If you never have heard of Hefner or Carson, please stop reading my columns.) Hugh was touting how terri c his magazine was because of all the great writers who appeared on its pages. Johnny had had enough and nally interrupted him with something like, “Mr. Hefner, how many people would buy your magazine if you did not have the centerfold?” Ev-

ica where he said, “I had my last formative training before moving to New York.” He serves as the associate executive director.

During the past year, Mitchell and Lassakova have performed at a Ukrainian charity gala in New York alongside dancers from American Ballet Theater and New York City Ballet. He also performed in Orange County with the group “Reunited in Dance” featuring exiled dancers from Russian companies.

“It was really wonderful,” Mitchell said. “We thought we might never see each other again and we got to perform together.”

Now 29, Mitchell will perform a pas de deux with Lassakova at the BroadStage Santa Monica on May 26. The pair will dance to Christopher Wheeldon’s “After the Rain,” a special reprisal of their performance with their fellow Russian exiles at the Segerstrom Center’s November “Reunited in Dance” Gala.

“It’s a really special piece of choreography,” Mitchell commented.

erybody laughed. And so, I ask, “How many of us would live in Malibu if we were forced to experience Maine’s foggy weather?”

I actually took three days o and drove to the desert because I had forgotten what the sun looks like. I just returned from New Jersey, where the sun shone every day. I don’t care if it’s El Niño or El Paso or El anything else or even if it’s climate change which is depriving me of my sun, but whatever it is, it has to stop and stop now.

ing children. One of his big songs was Oh Mr. Sun, and my kids would sing it on a cloudy day. I recently found myself walking around the house singing the song and hope it will bring the sun back to Malibu:

Oh, Mister Sun, Sun, Mister Golden Sun, Please shine down on me

Oh, Mister Sun, Sun, Mister Golden Sun, Hiding behind a tree. ese little children are asking you

To please come out so we can play with you, Oh, Mister Sun, Sun, Mister Golden Sun, Please shine down on me!

Another standout on the team was Filip Kurial, whose e orts have etched his name into MHS history.

Kurial is now the school’s record holder for the 50 free, with a time of 21.02, surpassing the previous record of 21.38. He is also the record holder for the fastest 100 free, with a time of 45.59, besting the previous score of 46.00.

Kurial spoke humbly on the season, highlighting the e orts of the team before his own.

“I am very proud of our performance this year. is has been the farthest we have made it through CIF in a while,” Kurial said. “I am very happy with how the year turned out and it will de nitely be one to remember. Not only am I happy with my times, but it was also crazy to see just how much everyone else was able to improve too.”

“one of the three remaining Imperial Theaters of the Russian Federation.” Mitchell is the first Black man to graduate from the Vaganova Academy and the first Black man to work professionally in a Russian ballet company.

Mitchell and his partner, Andrea Lassakova of Slovakia, were living out their dreams performing as soloists and dancing principal roles until the COVID-19 pandemic hit and they were forced to quarantine, but just for a short time.

“In Russia, they put us back to work pretty fast,” he said. Without work, the two would have lost their working visas. However, the pair also wanted to explore new repertoire.

“Artistically we wanted the opportunity to dance more new, contemporary repertoire” be -

cause in Russia the classics are repeated canon, Mitchell said.

“‘Sleeping Beauty’ and ‘Swan Lake’ are beautiful ballets and I love dancing them but we wanted more opportunities to expand our careers.”

In 2022 when Russia invaded Ukraine, Mitchell and Lassakova resigned from their jobs and fled the country, but it was difficult.

Flights were canceled, buses were turning people away, and trains leaving for Finland were only for Finnish and Russian citizens.

The couple, along with their dog, took a taxi to the Estonian border and then walked across to safety. Mitchell and Lassakova have been back in the U.S. for just over a year now, settling in Los Angeles.

Mitchell has returned to Westside Ballet in Santa Mon -

The piece holds special significance to him. When he originally saw it performed he called it “life changing.” He had told himself at the time, “One day I want to dance that.” Today he says, “Now I have the pleasure.”

Mitchell is also looking forward to the opportunity that other dancers in the company will get.

“This show also showcases exciting young talent we have at Westside Ballet,” the performer said.

Mitchell reflected on his formative years in Malibu and remembered some of his earlier performances at Smothers Theater and various venues.

“Malibu is a very cultured and artistic community. I still think of it as home in many ways,” he said. “My love of the art was nurtured there.”

Kurial also represented the school at the Division 3 Championships, placing 21st in the state in the 50 frees and 12th in the state in the 100 frees.

Kurial praised his coach for the support and training.

“Mr. Mulligan is the best coach that I have had for swimming. He is tough at practice and makes us work to become the best versions of ourselves, in and out of the pool,” Kurial said. “ e skills, knowledge, and energy that he brings to the pool are unbeatable and I can’t wait to swim with him again next year.”

Mulligan said he was happy with the team’s achievements, but believes the takeaway of the season is the support, progress, and happiness that the program supplied to the team.

“I was happy with the work ethic, the team comradery and I would say that the takeaway has to be seeing the enjoyment and excitement when they get their fastest time, or place high in nals, and knowing they’re excited about continuing swimming the following year,” Mulligan said.

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property.

Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be re ected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. NOTICE TO TENANT: Effective January 1, 2021, you may have a right to purchase this property after the trustee auction pursuant to Section 292 m of the California Civil Code. If you are an eligible tenant buyer, you can purchase the property if you match the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. If you are an “eligible bidder,” you may be able to purchase the property if you exceed the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. There are three steps to exercising this right of purchase. First, 8 hours after the date of the trustee sale, you can call (855) 313-3319, or visit this internet website www.clearreconcorp.com, using the file number assigned to this case 108 80-CA to find the date on which the trustee’s sale was held, the amount of the last and highest bid, and the address of the trustee.

COUNTY OF LOS ANGELES DEPARTMENT OF TREASURER AND TAX COLLECTOR NOTICE OF DIVIDED PUBLICATION

Made pursuant to Revenue and Taxation Code Section 3381

Pursuant to Revenue and Taxation Code (R&TC) Sections 3381 through 3385, the Notice of Power to Sell Tax-Defaulted Property Subject to the Tax Collector’s Power to Sell in and for the County of Los Angeles, State of California, has been divided and distributed to various newspapers of general circulation published in the County. A portion of the list appears in each of such newspapers.

NOTICE OF IMPENDING POWER TO SELL TAX-DEFAULTED PROPERTY

Made pursuant to Revenue and Taxation Code Section 3361

Notice is hereby given that the following parcels listed will become subject to the tax collector’s power to sell on Saturday, July 1, 2023, at 12:01 a.m. Pacific Time, by operation of law. The real property taxes and assessments on the parcels listed will have been defaulted five or more years, except for:

1. Nonresidential commercial parcels, as defined in R&TC Section 3691, which will have been defaulted for three or more years;

2. Parcels on which a nuisance abatement lien has been recorded, which will have been defaulted for three or more years;

3. Parcels that can serve the public benefit and a request has been made by the County of Los Angeles, a city within the County of Los Angeles, or nonprofit organization to purchase the parcels through Chapter 8 Agreement Sales pursuant to R&TC Section 3692.4, which will have been defaulted for three or more years.

The Tax Collector will record a Notice of Power to Sell unless the property taxes are paid in full or the property owner initiates an installment plan of redemption, as provided by law, prior to 5:00 p.m. Pacific Time, on Friday, June 30, 2023, when the right to initiate an installment plan terminates. Thereafter, the only option to prevent the sale of the property at public auction is to pay the taxes in full.

A written staff report will be available at or before the hearing for the project.

Pepperdine men’s volleyball players earn various honors

Jaylen Jasper earns spot on U.S. beach volleyball team; others get All-America and All Academic recognition

The Pepperdine Waves men’s tennis team’s season ended in April. However, members of the squad received accolades this month.

Standout opposite Jaylen Jasper earned a spot on the U.S. Beach Volleyball Collegiate National Team on May 3. Two days before, Jasper and his teammate, setter Bryce Dvorak, received American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) All-American recognition.

Additionally, Jasper, outside hitter Akin Akinwumi, libero Trey Cole, libero Yadiel Diaz,

middle blocker Andersen Fuller, libero Brendan Read, outside hitter Kevin Roberts, and opposite Jacob Steele received All-Academic status from the

Mountain Paci c Sports Federation. Jasper was named to the All-American second team and Dvorak was honorable

mention. Jasper had earned All-American honorable mention four times previously and Dvorak was a second-team All-American last year and a

honorable mention in 2021. Jasper is one of nine women and 11 men named to the red, white, and blue beach volleyball squad, part of the National

Waves salvage one win in final threegame series against BYU, finish with 19-30 record

The bats of the Pepperdine Waves baseball team were ablaze in the team’s last game of the season.

e Waves scored a season-high 19 runs in their 19-6 win over BYU in Provo, Utah, on May 20.

Pepperdine tallied ve runs in the rst two and a half innings. e host BYU scored four runs in the bottom of the third inning, but then the Waves rang up 14 unanswered runs in next four innings. e squad had six runs in the fourth inning and seven runs in the fth inning in the nine-inning contest.

Ryan Johnson, a senior in elder, led Pepperdine by going 3-for-6 at the plate. He hit his 18th home run of the season, a three-run shot, in the top of the third.

Johnson is second on the Pepperdine single-season home run list, and his 37 career

home runs places him third on the career all-time list.

Junior out elder Connor Bradshaw went 3-for-4, including his sixth homer of the season, a three-run swing. Bradshaw also hit a double and scored two other runs.

Charles Masino, a junior out elder went

Meet Elias!

3-for-5 with his fourth homer of the season, another three-run blast for the Waves. Masino scored three runs, a career-high for him.

Junior in elder Lincoln Orellana went 2-for-4, including two RBIs, and scored a career-high three runs.

Elias arrived at Palmdale ACC with a shattered leg, most likely from being hit by a car. It was determined the best course of action was to amputate. Healthcare for Homeless Animals provided funding for Elias to have a thorough exam on his surgical site and surrounding area at Malibu Coast AH. Dr. Dean reported that Elias is healing very well, although he does have mild bilateral hip dysplasia. So mild that he does not require treatment other than anti-inflammatory meds as needed.

Since his amputation, Elias’s balance has improved, his other legs have become stronger, & he continues to adjust to tripod life well!

Elias is a charming & loving boy. He enjoys lots of belly rubs, minds his manners, likes to play with toys and he loves to cuddle up right in your lap! He would do best in a home with kids 12+ and prefers to be your one & only pup love.
