After taking more than a year to find an initial tenant, the poorly planned and executed retail site at Temescal Canyon and Bowdoin is empty again with the closure of landscape and garden store Acme 5. I can’t imagine any other merchant wanting to locate there, which means Bluffs residents will be saddled with retail blight for the foreseeable future. The property owner should be held accountable.
A huge thank you to all of the volunteer poll workers at the rec center on Sunday morning. For a second day there were technical difficulties with the voting process and County workers were not on site when the polls opened. The volunteers found work arounds to the problems, kept calm and were extremely helpful and pleasant. They made an inexcusable situation bearable.
As a senior citizen I would love to have doors held open for me. Shaking a finger at someone is not inducement but rather a shaming act. I would like to think a senior citizen could be constructive in teaching younger people. Assumptions are dangerous and assuming anyone will hold the door open for me invites unfulfilled expectations. Perhaps smiling and making eye contact would be a better way to go?
Seniors, Are you aware that we have a beautiful new Bay Theatre in our town? I went to our theatre Sat. Besides myself there were 2 other people in the theatre. We lost our last Bay Theatre. Now we have a new one but they can’t keep it open if they don’t get any business. It is a very beautiful & comfortable theatre. The price is very fair $15 for seniors for W/E’s and during the week is a fair price. Marina del ray charges $20 for their dine-in theatre. Keep in mind that they are paying high taxes since the development. Also, they told me that they validate the parking. Please don’t let us lose our movie theatre.
I took photos Sunday afternoon of the area around the baseball park in the Palisades of garbage left by the spectators (the parents) of the Little League players. Behind all four ballfields there was trash. Granted it was Sunday and there was no trash pick up but it should be the responsibility of the parents to make sure the area is clean after the game is over. My wife and I have for years walked almost daily around the ball park. The picnic atmosphere for the spectators continues to grow which is ok but the number of trash cans at each baseball diamond remains the same. Either the parents bring their own trash bags or the Rec Dept makes available more trash cans or both.
Thank you to the volunteer clean-up crew members who were cleaning up the litter in the Palisades Drive canyon pass this past Sunday. I saw a table for the volunteers with a sign for local realtor, Tom Hackett, who provided lunch. Thank you!!!! Also, I am sure that not all the litter is from Highlands residents, but I bet some of our residents contribute to this. Please don’t litter in the canyon, this is your neighborhood!
