I support the fishing ban! PETA's message is clear.
M Stanley July 16, 2014 at 09:45 am
NO to the fishing ban. I'll give that the guy fishing with shark tackle is an idiot but I do notRead More support removing the sport entirely as it provides food for the ones that engage in it. Deny one sport in favor of another? The guy who swam into the entangled shark's stressful fight was not an average beach goer but one engaged in a open ocean competitive swim. To ban fishing should bring an equivalent to banning swimmers from exercising within a specified distance of piers. Both fisherman and swimmer bear responsibility, stop with the generalizations and overreaching responses.

Hookers on the pier? Remember, you get what you pay for!

Manhattan Beach and other coastal cities should take PETA’s advice and permanently banRead More fishing. Fish suffer when they are impaled and left to suffocate, and as the recent fishing-provoked shark attack on a swimmer shows, fishing can come back to bite humans, too.
Suzanne Carlson July 16, 2014 at 02:52 am
Love this clever banner! Faking out a fish is nothing to be proud about. Leave them in peace!
Heather Moore July 16, 2014 at 01:58 pm
Why can't people just enjoy the beach and the pier without killing animals and putting people atRead More risk? People harm sharks much more often than they harm us. We’ve turned the ocean into an all-you-can-eat buffet, but there's plenty to do--and eat--without yanking fish out of the water.

If they truly want to make a difference in water usage they would target the city and stateRead More governments who continue to approve new high density residential building. Every time they approve another new development project they are adding to the drain on water. And, fracking needs to stop. Forcing millions of gallons of water and chemicals under pressure into wells in California is a dangerous travesty. Not only does the process of fracking use water, it contaminates the ground water. Yes there is a drought but it is our city and state government who can make a difference, but they continue to build new housing and frack wells to encourage oil production. It is all about money.

City of Huntington Beach is letting a contractor put in a 276 unit complex on Beach and Ellis Ave.Read More Three story underground parking for over 400 cars. Also included are commercial stalls. Where is the water coming from? Did the dumb bells talk to God and he said o.k. I will supply you with rain water? Next. The city is digging up concrete sidewalks to plant trees. Trees need to be watered twice a week. The truck delivers water for them. But their is a water shortage???? lol lol The idiots have no idea how to run a city. Wait until they try to get re-elected! I could care less about conserving.

Why does he come here so much? I don't think any president in recent memory has been to SouthernRead More California as often as this one, and Reagan doesn't count because he had his ranch out here when he was president. I think he likes to spend a little too much time hobnobbing with celebrities who will give him the fawning attention he craves and is not getting too much from nowadays from the country as a whole. His visits also tie up traffic. Notice his wife also never comes out here with him when he makes his numerous visits.

We have a baad problem here in Hermosa Beach. Powers greater than god are trying to OK drilling 30Read More oil wells and 4 deep toxic water injection wells. While the offshore production will produce plenty of saltwater, injecting it produces earthquakes in places like Oklahoma, it is a certainty to produce earthquakes directly below where the fault stresses are high. Besides beach subsidence, expensive beach homes now are threatened by tsunami. Imagine the property loss lawsuits. Worse than Redondo who only endured subsidence. Earthquakes will shear wells, blowout, wreck infrastructure, cause fires and explosions for the residents with zero setback. 20 feet from sidewalks children use coming and going to school.

They are both great teams thus the hard fought over time game. Could have went either way.

Attn: Mr. R. Terry Date: Monday June 09, 2014 It is because of gamblingRead More that some horses and bulls lose their lives. When horses continue to have a losing streak the owner is not making any cash off that horse, it is off to the Glue Factory with that horse. If a horse breaks it's leg in the race it is off to the Glue Factory with that horse. Bulls will die automatically in a Bull Fight after the Matador sticks both swords in the bull's throat from the left and right side of the bull. So don't tell me gambling has nothing to do with your comment. I understood what you were saying. But these animals are going to be killed if there is no money to be made that is all there is to it. I don't like it anymore than you do. But it seems that way the ball bounces and one of us is going to have to catch and stop that ball from bouncing. The best.
