Week in Review

Downtown business owners have launched a grassroots organization to stage special events and promote local commerce. Shops will be open late every Thursday night, not just on First Thursday.

Seaside Pharmacy, San Pedro’s oldest known business, lost a piece of its history when former owner Virgil Ray “Mac” McCutchan died on July 16, the Daily Breeze reported.

“Port facing April 1 deadline for inner Cabrillo Beach cleanup” and they’re already racing against time, according to the Daily Breeze.

Sunken City sank a little more Friday.

“Single drivers can pay tolls to use carpool lanes starting in Dec. 2010,” the Daily Breeze reported. The policy will apply to the Harbor Freeway and a portion of the San Bernardino Freeway.

Catching up on last Friday – Here is the July 17 Daily Breeze story on the Attorney General’s money-bearing visit to a San Pedro drug treatment center and here is a look at the newly named director of Angels Gate Cultural Center.
