Week in Review

They’re watching you – all 321 cameras that keep an eye on port security. Read more in the Daily Breeze cover story from last Sunday.

Crime in downtown and coastal San Pedro is making the news. The Daily Breeze did stories before and after a special Central San Pedro Neighborhood Council meeting about community crime Tuesday. And, following two incidents in coastal San Pedro, a community meeting is taking place Sunday. Hosted by Councilwoman Janice Hahn, the Dec. 13 meeting is set for 9:30 a.m. at the Starbucks at 25th Street and Western Avenue. The coffeehouse was robbed late last month and a nearby clothing store in the Vons shopping center was also robbed this week.

The Gaffey Street pool will be renovated with port funds from the China Shipping settlement.

What’s more, they’re going to build a pool at the new Angels Gate High School. As the Daily Breeze reports, the pool will give the San Pedro High School swim team its own place to practice and it will be open to the public. Get the background in this story, written ahead of the LA school board vote Tuesday to approve funding.

The school board also voted to condemn the cell phone towers that recently went up near Taper Avenue Elementary School.

With just a year left on its temporary lease, Eastview Little League again asked the port Thursday to extend its time on Knoll Hill. Commissioners did not take action on the group’s request, according to a Daily Breeze brief.

The Northwest San Pedro Neighborhood Council is not holding a December meeting. Their agenda: to take a little holiday from politics. Do I hear a second?

And how about a break from parking meters? Wish granted. Downtown San Pedro meters will be free from Dec. 15 through Jan. 1.
