The Pacific Palisades Community Council hosted a second public safety and disaster readiness forum during its most recent virtual board meeting, which took place via Zoom on Thursday evening, February 25.

After an introduction from Palisades Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Volunteer Coordinator K.C. Soll, Hank Wright opened the forum with a discussion about the LAFD Auxiliary Communications Service, “the official amateur radio communications group for the city of Los Angeles.”

“Our primary purpose is to provide backup for LAFD’s radio system,” Wright, LAFD ACS Battalion 9 communication unit leader, explained. “In the event that there’s a big disaster and they [aren’t] able to use the telephones or the cells or their own radios, we have radios to be able to help them do that.”

Wright stressed the importance of reviewing LAFD’s Emergency Preparedness Guide, which can be found at cert-la.com/EmergPrepBooklet.pdf. The 39-page document includes information about what to do before, during and after earthquakes, power outages, fires, floods and more.

Wright’s call to action included four items: come up with a plan, obtain an FRS radio (similar to a walkie talkie) with extra batteries, get notified through NotifyLA (emergency.lacity.org/notifyla) and check the PulsePoint app.

He explained that at any given time, the Palisades has 19 LAFD personnel in the area between Stations 23 and 69 covering more than 20,000 residents in the area. They are there 24 hours per day, seven days per week, but if “something really big happens, these 19 people are going to be completely overwhelmed.”

He shared this is why it’s especially important to have a plan and to know neighbors through Ready Your LA Neighborhood or Map Your Neighborhood.

The next speaker, Culver City CERT Training Head Stephanie Benjamin, an EMT of 22 years, began her portion of the forum with a similar sentiment.

“Teamwork is one of the most important aspects of anything you’re going to do,” she shared. “Even if you don’t take the [CERT] training, you need to have that bond with your community so you can work together to solve the issues in front of you.”

CERT is a program that educates volunteers about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area, as well as provides training for basic disaster response skills, like fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations.

She shared that people think they can depend on the fire department, but their goal in a disaster is to help the most people and save the most amount of life, so they often don’t have the capacity to assist with individuals.

“It could be five days, it could be five weeks before they get to your neighborhood depending on the damage,” she said.

In a slideshow, she pointed out that “disasters can strike quickly and without warning,” and they can “force you to evacuate or confine you to your home”—which is why, she explained, it’s important to have a plan.

Before an earthquake, Benjamin said to create a family plan, make an emergency kit, learn how to use any tools in the kit, identify hazards in the home and work place, and fix those hazards.

“If it’s taller than it is wide,” she explained, “it’s going to topple, which means it can block your exits.”

During an earthquake, Benjamin asked that people stay calm, and to drop, cover and hold on. She explained to not run outside or use elevators.

“Do not run to help your children,” she added. “I know that’s the hardest thing to hear, but most injuries happen when you are running to get to someone else to help them. Stay where you are and then after the shaking stops, make your way to that person.”

She explained that having a family disaster plan and kit will “help ensure the safety of family members” and “help family members make informed, rational decisions in times of high stress requiring rapid decision making and action.”

Steps to developing a family disaster plan include researching hazards for the area (like flooding, brush fires, etc.) and how local organizations, like the Red Cross and CERT, will help. It also includes creating a communication plan, complete with both an out-of-state and local contact.

Benjamin explained it’s important to determine meeting places, suggesting to take into account the time of day the potential disaster occurs and have a place to meet if it’s 9 a.m., 2 p.m. or 3 a.m., as well as a weekday or weekend—and to practice this.

Data suggests that an emergency kit should last at least 72 hours, according to Benjamin. Essential items include water, food, cash and important documents, clothes, flashlight, first-aid kit, medicine, radio, toiletries, and tools.

“Bed sheets are amazing,” she added. “Anytime you get new bed sheets, throw your old ones into your emergency kit. You can tear them up to create bandages, you can hang them up to create shade, you can use them as a stretcher to carry someone.”

Palisades Highlands Ready Your LA Neighborhood Volunteer Coordinator Jenny Buchbinder concluded the forum with a presentation about the program, which is a free service offered by the City of LA Emergency Management Department that allows neighborhoods to be more prepared for big disasters.

“It’s not just about preparing your own self and your own family,” Buchbinder explained, “but should there be a disaster, it will be really important to coordinate with and know your neighbors. The whole idea of mutual aid.”

There are currently 17 RYLAN plans in place throughout the Palisades and Rustic Canyon. Buchbinder said the area can be a block, five, 10 or 15 homes, or something larger, depending on the need for the area.

The plan includes a Map Your Neighborhood meeting, where neighbors meet to create a response plan. Over the course of the 90-minute meeting, those within the area identify meeting places, as well as relevant special skills and equipment each resident has.

A contact list is also created, with information about neighbors who may need extra assistance during a disaster or have pets.

Spruzzo Restaurant & Bar to Open in the Highlands

By LILY TINOCO | Reporter

Longtime Malibu eatery Spruzzo Restaurant & Bar, owned and operated by Ray and his son Ryan Gowhari, is coming to Pacific Palisades this summer.

Spruzzo will open in the Highlands in the space that formerly housed Taste at the Palisades, located at 538 Palisades Drive.

Spruzzo is designed to be an “upscale family-friendly restaurant in Malibu with generous portions, great prices and excellent service,” according to its website.

Ryan shared that his father Ray has been running the treasured Malibu location since 1994—before he was born. Ray purchased the restaurant from two brothers and kept the name Spruzzo, which translates to “splash” in Italian.

Ryan said he became involved with the restaurant after graduating high school. He would work over the summer. Since graduating from California State University, Northridge, in 2018, Ryan took on the role of a full-time manager.

“I got involved because I saw the opportunity that was presented in front of me … my dad’s experience and willingness to teach me how to be an operator in this business,” Ryan said to the Palisadian-Post. 

Although Spruzzo is known for its Italian flare, Ryan said his father also wanted the restaurant to offer comfort foods and cater to the people coming from the beach. Spruzzo offers “food cooked to perfection,” including pizza, sandwiches, pasta, chicken, steaks and fresh seafood entrees, according to the restaurant’s website.

Ryan said the Palisades location will offer the same menu with slight modifications and brunch on the weekends, which isn’t offered at the Malibu location. The new location will also have space for outdoor dining.

“We could fit about 20 to 25 people out there,” Ryan said.

He said when he and his father found the Palisades location, the duo thought it was the perfect family-friendly, neighborhood spot.

“There aren’t many other restaurants [in Malibu], especially in deep Western Malibu, a very high percentage of our business is [from] regulars, I know my customers by name and I know their families,” Ryan said to the Post.

“We feel that the Palisades Highlands shares a lot of the same values and is similar in a lot of ways … [we] look forward to continuing that tradition and serving the Palisades very soon.”

He said Spruzzo is slated to open in the Palisades Highlands by the end of June.

City Planning Commission Reviews Coastal Housing Ordinance Proposal, Continues Vote

By LILY TINOCO | Reporter

The Los Angeles City Planning Commission met virtually on Thursday, February 25, to review a proposed ordinance to adopt permanent regulations for the demolition, loss or conversion of residential units and development of residential units throughout the city’s coastal zone, which includes Pacific Palisades, Venice and San Pedro.

The ordinance would add a section to the Los Angeles Municipal Code to implement the state Mello Act, which went into effect in January 1982 as an attempt to protect existing residential units and increase the supply of affordable housing in California’s coastal zone.

The proposed ordinance accomplishes the intent of the Mello Act by regulating the demolition, conversion, change of use and new construction activities that involve existing or proposed dwelling units in coastal zone communities.

The ordinance is designed to promote a more equitable distribution of housing opportunities by cost and type to all residents of the city and preserve quality rental and ownership housing for households of all income levels and special needs, according to the CPC’s recommendation report.

“It has a pure purpose and that’s really supporting affordable housing,” Deputy Director of Community Planning Shana Bonstin said.

According to the CPC’s recommendation report, the proposed ordinance is consistent with the goals, objectives and policies of the Brentwood-Pacific Palisades Community Plan—which includes the promotion of adequate housing for all persons regardless of income, age or ethnic background, and the development and maintenance of rental units to ensure housing for a variety of income groups.

Following discussions, CPC decided to continue the vote to have enough time to review recommendations given by the Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles.

LAFLA sent the commission a letter on February 12 with suggestions, including the prioritization of extremely low-, very low- and low-income households instead of moderate income, and changing “demolition” to include substantial renovation work and more.

Krista Kline, deputy chief of staff for Councilmember Mike Bonin, relayed his statement to the CPC and said Bonin believes affordable housing is imperative everywhere, especially in the coastal zone.

“The city of Los Angeles has a legal responsibility and a moral requirement to protect, preserve and promote affordable housing in all neighborhoods,” she said. “Unfortunately the interim rules the city has been using for decades has not done that.”

Kline said Bonin also supports LAFLA’s recommendations.

“Councilmember agrees with LAFLA that the proposed definition for demolition is not tight enough and should include substantial work that may occur on-site,” Kline said. “He also supports LAFLA’s concerns … the councilmember agrees with the methodology submitted in the LAFLA letter to City Planning on February 12.”

The CPC will review the ordinance again during its meeting on Thursday, May 13.

Palisadian Teen Helps Raise Funds for Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

By LILY TINOCO | Reporter

Palisadian Frances Abu Shanab is rallying for a cause after being nominated for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Students of the Year 2021 campaign.

The Students of the Year campaign is a leadership development program for high school students that teaches professional skills such as entrepreneurship and marketing while they raise funds for LLS. The society utilizes funds raised for cancer research and helps over 55,000 patients afford treatment, according to the organization’s website.

“Since LLS was founded in 1949, survival rates for many blood cancers have doubled, tripled and even quadrupled,” Abu Shanab said in a statement. “Forty percent of all new FDA-approved cancer therapies were developed to help cure blood cancer. These revolutionary approaches funded by LLS are developing effective treatments for breast and pancreatic cancers, rheumatoid arthritis, and even diabetes.”

Abu Shanab said LLS has helped save the lives of many, including her own.

“When I was 3 and a half [years old], I was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia,” the Highlands resident said to the Palisadian-Post. “I went through 26 months of treatment … LLS has been a part of our lives since I was diagnosed.”

Abu Shanab said her family would participate in LLS’ Light the Night, a fundraising walk to raise cancer awareness and money for research. They have been continually more involved.

Two years ago Abu Shanab was celebrated as the LLS Girl of the Year for the Man and Woman of the Year campaign, and just last year she was the LLS Honored Hero—she said these honorary experiences have inspired her to continue being a cancer advocate.

“I got to meet a lot of different people and families who have been affected by cancer, and all the people I met inspired me,” Abu Shanab said. “I got to see how much a childhood cancer diagnosis affects a family … and I got to see what … my family went through because I don’t remember a lot from when I was diagnosed since I was so young.

“I want to raise funds for families like mine who are going through the same thing that my family went through when I was diagnosed.”

Abu Shanab was nominated for the LLS Students of the Year campaign last June, and has since been responsible for forming and leading her fundraising team, The Mighty Shrimps.

She shared that the name comes from her love of shrimp while undergoing treatment.

“People would ask what to bring to the hospital, my parents would tell them to bring shrimp,” Abu Shanab said. “To this day I still love shrimp. When naming my team, we wanted to bring an aspect of my treatment and a silly memory from that time.”

She has 12 members on her team, from close friends to a network of individuals from different cities, including the Bay Area and New York, to broaden the scope of outreach.

“I know this is an extremely unusual time in our history where we are battling a pandemic, economic hardship and unresolved racial inequity in our country” Abu Shanab said in a statement. “This has affected LLS and the patients it supports. The unfortunate reality is cancer does not take time off. I hope you can join us in this effort so we can be the answer to curing cancer.”

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, she said the team was unable to organize typical in-person fundraising events, so they had to get innovative.

She said The Mighty Shrimps have been able to raise funds through Charitybuzz, a company that raises funds for nonprofit organizations through online charity auction experiences.

She reported the team was able to organize an outdoor exercise class in collaboration with the Row House in Santa Monica “to raise money and get people to come row for a cause,” she said.

Abu Shanab said she has also worked on sponsorships with individuals in business and a pharmaceutical company that aims to create new treatments for cancer and tumors.

The Mighty Shrimps’ seven-week campaign ends on March 6 at 6 p.m., and the team is motivated to reach its $100,000 goal.

“I’ve had a great team who has been helping me a lot … it’s cool to see the funds come in and it’s amazing to see that this small group … is able to raise that much money.” Abu Shanab said to the Post. “It’s a surprise in the end, so we can’t reveal what we’ve raised, but we’re well on our way to our goal … which is super exciting.”

Abu Shanab, a sophomore at Pacifica Christian High School, said her efforts won’t end here or anytime soon.

“I have really enjoyed myself over these past few weeks, so I really hope in the future or in my career I’m able to help raise funds [and] support the fight to cure cancer,” she concluded.

Countywide COVID-19 Vaccination Eligibility Expands to Teachers, Some Essential Workers

By SARAH SHMERLING | Editor-in-Chief

As of Monday, March 1, additional sectors are now eligible for vaccination in Los Angeles County, including those who work in food and agriculture, education and childcare, and emergency services.

Nearly 1.2 million people across the county fall into these newly approved categories, according to data provided by Los Angeles County Department of Public Health.

Vaccines will continue to be offered to healthcare workers, staff and residents at skilled nursing and long-term care facilities, and LA County residents 65 and over.

Public Health reported that following a surge of COVID-19 cases in healthcare workers during fall through winter, cases have dropped to the “lowest they have been since the beginning of the pandemic,” as overall cases decline and many healthcare workers have been vaccinated.

“During the week of November 29, there were over 1,800 cases among healthcare workers,” according to Public Health on Monday, March 1. “The week of February 14, there were just 69 cases. Among workers in skilled nursing facilities, a group experiencing one-fourth of healthcare worker cases, there is a significant decrease in cases. The week of November 29, there were 434 cases among these healthcare workers, and the week of February 14, there were 10.”

As of Monday, nearly 1.96 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered across the county, of which 600,497 people have received second doses—though the county stressed even more doses could be administered if supply allowed.

“Across sectors, there is much more capacity to vaccinate, though there is simply not enough supply of vaccine to offer more appointments,” Public Health reported. “Our large capacity vaccination sites alone could provide 142,000 additional doses this week if there was sufficient vaccine supply.”

As of February 20, Public Health reported that 5,143 residents of Pacific Palisades had been vaccinated, which is 30.4% of the population, with an additional 992 in Palisades Highlands, 31.2%.

“LA County is working to ensure that eligible residents and workers in the hardest hit communities have increased access to vaccines,” according to Public Health. “Access to people living in communities that have been the hardest hit by the pandemic remains a challenge, and we are continuing to employ strategies to increase access to vaccinations for these groups.”

The agency is encouraging more restricted clinics for residents in these communities so they have access to appointments and don’t have to travel far to receive it, as well as shifting some allocations to these smaller sites.

Public Health reported that following Johnson & Johnson receiving emergency use authorization for its vaccine this week, it is likely that the county will begin to see doses as early as next week.

“As Johnson & Johnson doses come into LA County, this vaccine will be offered at a number of sites, including the large capacity vaccination sites,” Public Health reported. “All three vaccines are extraordinarily powerful and, in clinical trials, were 100% effective preventing hospitalizations and deaths.”

As the Post went to print Tuesday, the number of positive cases across LA County when factoring in Long Beach and Pasadena had reached 1,194,242, with 21,554 deaths. Pacific Palisades had reached 748 cases, with an additional 132 in Palisades Highlands.

According to Public Health, Pacific Palisades had a two-week case rate of 27 as of Monday, March 1, with Palisades Highlands at two.

Your Two Cents’ Worth

Response to Bills

Please tell that poor reader to have a plumber check for a leak either in a line or at the meter. We had a leak at our meter at the street that presented in increasing bills just as was described. It was our responsibility to pay for the repairs. I can’t believe LADWP did not suggest this as a possible culprit!


I love to see our local charter schools hosting virtual online auctions. Supporting them is so important, so it’s great to have this avenue during the pandemic.

COVID Concerns

People please continue being careful! I was out around the town last weekend for the first time in a long time and was shocked to see so many people acting as if COVID wasn’t even a thing. I would really hate to see us fall backwards again.


I’ve been hearing complaints about reckless driving all around and the tire marks on Pampas Ricas and Ocampo and Chapala are of great concern. Be mindful and consider the tragedies that can occur from this reckless behavior, just cut it out.


Driving up PCH is my favorite way to step away from the mess and catch a breather, I often forget about Lake Shrine! A gem in the community that shouldn’t be taken for granted.


Though I have been doing takeout and delivery, I can’t believe it’s almost been a full year since I have dined in at a Palisades restaurant. I already have a list of those I can’t wait to return to and continue supporting after I am vaccinated.

Got something to say? Call (310) 454-1321 or email 2cents@palipost.com and get those kudos or concerns off your chest. Names will not be used.


Aloha, Pacific Palisades!

In the fall of 1993, I got a magazine job offer that was too good to turn down. The only snag? The office was located way the heck in Westlake Village, and I was a born-and-bred beach girl living in the OC. There was no way I was going to move inland.

Somehow, I recalled driving down Sunset Boulevard during my college years at UCLA and passing through an idyllic spot called Pacific Palisades. I decided that was the ONLY place I would live. If I couldn’t find an apartment there, I wasn’t going to take the job, and I let my new employer know it.

That’s when he handed me a copy of the Palisadian-Post so I could check the classifieds for places to live. Within a week, I’d found an apartment and even better, a new home. I had made a vow that I would only stay for a year then move back to the OC. That year ended up being nearly three incredible decades.

The Palisadian-Post was my introduction to this hidden community—its long-standing homespun traditions (the parade, the teen contest and the spelling bee!), the remarkable people who made it so special, and even the little things that irked the people living in this paradise (hello, 2 Cents column!).

The paper felt like the glue that held the community together, and I loved it! Finding my copy of the Post in my mailbox each Thursday was like getting a little squirt of the feel-good neurochemical dopamine.

I couldn’t have been more thrilled 20 years later when I was asked to become the editor of the paper I loved so much. What an honor! I relished the features we did on our locals and am so proud of the deep-dive investigations we managed to do with a small but mighty staff—the Wednesday night motorcycle riders, the mysterious Tobalina house in the Huntington, and of course, the wild tale of Jeffrey Lash, the human-alien hybrid in the Highlands.

As exciting as those stories were, the 24/7 nature of news took its toll, and I eventually said farewell to my career at the paper.

The Palisades has been my bubble for decades, but when the pandemic hit, my husband and I realized it was time to move on. We’ve sold our house (you might have seen it on the Home Spotlight page of the Post) and are moving to Hawaii—trading one paradise for another.

I’ll miss you, Pacific Palisades! And it’s too hard to say goodbye, so I’ll just say aloha!

Putting Food Waste to Work at Home

The Palisadian-Post has partnered with locally founded environmental organization Resilient Palisades to deliver a weekly “green tip” to our readers.

One of the simplest and most powerful ways Palisadians can help our planet is by diverting our organic kitchen scraps from landfills. The most sustainable way of doing this is composting.

But this green tip is not about composting. It’s a few, fun ways you and your family can use your kitchen scraps to feed your indoor (and outdoor) plants without the need for harsh, store-bought chemicals.

The happier your (indoor) plants, the better they’ll be at removing carbon dioxide and other pollutants from your home.

Avocado seeds: Blend dry and feed directly to soil, then water. They’re packed with potassium and phosphorus, which plants love and need.

Avocado skin: Blend skins with some water and feed a few tablespoons to soil for a quick nitrogen boost.

Egg shells: Rinse, boil and bake for 20 minutes at 250 degrees. Blend them into a fine powder then sprinkle on soil for a calcium boost. (You can add to your own smoothies, too.)

Orange peels: Blend dry peels, then add very little water to turn into a paste. Add to the base of soil to keep aphids and ants away. Gives a nitrogen boost, too.

Pomegranate peels: Chop up, blend with water and feed directly to soil. Packed with potassium, phosphorus, iron, copper and zinc

Potato skin: Toss potato peels in a cup or bowl and add boiling water. Let sit for about two hours—the longer the better. Then strain the orange-tinted water and feed the liquid directly to your plants. Provides phosphorus, magnesium and calcium.
