    Anthony Bruce could barely talk about the beach that bears his family’s name without feeling a sharp pain, a tug at the heart. More than a century ago, his ancestors had turned this small corner of Manhattan Beach into a popular resort — one where Black people could dip their toes in the sand and bask in their own slice of the California dream. But their white neighbors, in this very white town, ran them all away. “This is our legacy, this beach,” Bruce said. “It has haunted my family for ages.” Today, most see Bruce’s Beach as a pretty park with jasmine and coastal live oak overlooking the sea. In this affluent town of 35,000 — known...
    MANHATTAN BEACH (CBSLA) — Most Los Angeles County residents are well aware that face coverings are mandatory when out in public, but how many beachgoers were in compliance as temperatures increased Friday? Surfers flocked to Los Angeles County beaches Friday as temperatures soared. (CBSLA) “At the beach,” Lerna Amiryans, a beachgoer, asked. “I don’t see any.” The lack of face coverings worn by people at the beach concerned some, but others did not think it was a problem. “I see no issue with not having masks on,” Jake Theman, a surfer, said. “And I personally think that a mandate on the beach is a little silly.” “I think everybody’s pretty far apart, got some good distancing,” Logan Hudson, another surfer,...
    Jeffrey Epstein's mansions in Manhattan and Florida have reportedly hit the market with a combined asking price of $110million.  The disgraced pedophile's sprawling townhome on the Upper East Side is listed at $88million, and his waterfront estate in Palm Beach is listed at $21.995million, the Wall Street Journal revealed Thursday.   The listings were posted just under a year after Epstein died by suicide in his jail cell while awaiting trial on a slew of sex trafficking charges.  The millionaire financier was accused of sexually abusing dozens of young girls at the homes as part of a massive sex trafficking ring that now threatens to bring down his alleged madam, Ghislaine Maxwell, and potentially many other high-profile associates. Disgraced pedophile...

    NEW YORK (AP) — A lawyer for financier Jeffrey Epstein’s ex-girlfriend on Tuesday asked a judge presiding over her sex crimes case to impose a gag order on lawyers and others to reduce prejudicial pretrial publicity and protect her chances of a fair trial. The attorney, Jeffrey Pagliuca, filed a letter in Manhattan federal court citing public comments made by Acting U.S. Attorney Audrey Strauss, the head of New York’s FBI office and lawyers for accusers of British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell after her July 2 arrest in Bradford, New Hampshire. He said the comments show that an order is necessary to prevent “prejudicial pretrial publicity by the government, its agents, and lawyers for alleged witnesses.” In particular, he cited comments...

The move, authorized under an emergency order that went into effect Wednesday, comes as California continues to see record levels of coronavirus infection and officials stress that residents must do their part to stymie the spread of the virus. “The drastic increase in positive COVID-19 cases in our city and around Los Angeles County have shown us that additional measures must be taken to make it clear to the public that face coverings are essential right now,” Mayor Richard Montgomery said in a statement Thursday. “The time for warnings is over. Face coverings must be worn when you are outside of...

    MANHATTAN BEACH (CBSLA) — A stretch of Manhattan Beach is an important part of Southern California’s Black history, and people are increasingly calling for a bigger commemoration of that history. A grassy oceanfront park in Manhattan Beach was renamed Bruce’s Beach in 2006 for the Bruce family, which owned the property and ran it as a safe place for recreation for the Black community. Racism, however, drove them off the property in the 1920s. Currently, a plaque tells an abbreviated story of Bruce’s Beach, but an online petition supports the rewriting of the plaque, restoration of the land to the family, and restitution. “[The Bruce family] developed the beach resort into a flourishing enterprise accessible to all – until the...
    Q: My wife and I are going our separate ways, and each of us has a lawyer. We are being encouraged to have a remote mediation to seek to work things out. Is this really possible? I do not have to actually go to court? -B.W., Santa Monica Ron Sokol  A: Because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, much is being done “remotely” now, which means conferencing over the internet. In addition, court appearances for lawyers are often done over the phone. Thus, your personal attendance is not critical, and not expected in many instances. A mediated divorce resolution could be handled remotely by a skilled mediator, particularly since both sides have their own attorneys. Talk the process out with your...

    The use of the phrase “not taking our foot off their throat,” made multiple times by Manhattan Beach Fire Chief Daryn Drum, along with other remarks, led to his firing Friday evening. Manhattan Beach City Manager Bruce Moe issued a statement at 7 p.m. stating that Drum was “served with a notice of termination” and that Police Chief Derrick Abell will step in on an interim basis. Abell previously served as acting fire chief before the city hired Drum in April 2019. “We need thoughtful leaders offering voices that are open and inclusive,” Moe said in a statement. “Chief Drum’s recent comments do not reflect our core values as a city, and an immediate change of Fire Department leadership...
