Odds and ends

  • An earthquake (4.7 today in OC) and a potato salad recipe at the ever-eclectic LAist.
  • Another public SoCal beach you won't see this weekend. Or next weekend. Or any time soon, it seems.

    El Sol County Beach doesn't show up on maps of Malibu. Its bluff-top access way remains locked away behind a rusted chain-link and barbed-wire fence plastered with no-trespassing signs. The sandy beach below is effectively walled off by private property and rocky points of land at either end.

    Ken Weiss has the story about Malibu's most private public beach in today's LAT Travel section.

    Nary a (newsprint) word about public beaches activist, Jenny Price, or the Los Angeles Urban Rangers. Check the web version of the piece, which has that info.

  • LADN news guy Tim Haddock blogs everything NASCAR from the California Speedway this weekend.
