A small group of homeowners along the Los Angeles River in the Wrigley district in west Long Beach are fighting what they say has been an uphill battle with city and county officials to maintain their equestrian lifestyle.
Just about every day, residents who own horse stables and corrals on nine private properties ride their horses along a trail that currently stretches from Spring Street to 31st Street just west of San Francisco Avenue and which, they say, dates back to the 1880s.
According to residents, part of the housing tract was once owned by family of famed American frontier lawman Wyatt Earp, and the stables remain some of the only remaining places to house horses that participate in local parades, such as the annual Daisy Avenue Christmas Tree Lane Parade.
Though the trail was dedicated for horseback riding through legislation in the early 1940s, it still remains a public right-of-way owned by the County of Los Angeles. [Read more →]

One female suspect has been killed and a male suspect is in jail after a botched burglary at a Los Cerritos home.
On Tuesday night, Tom Greer, 80, arrived home and found suspects Gus Adams, 26, of Long Beach, and Andrea Miller, 28, of Long Beach, burglarizing his residence located on the 600 block of Terrylynn Place, according to the Long Beach Police Department (LBPD) and media reports.
The suspects immediately began assaulting Greer, striking him repeatedly and ultimately throwing him onto the floor, according to LBPD Police Chief Jim McDonnell in a press conference Thursday afternoon. The female continued to strike Greer while Adams walked over to the homeowner’s safe and attempted to break into it. After Miller also attempted to break into the safe, Greer retrieved a gun from another room and fired at the suspects, who then fled from the home with items taken during the burglary. [Read more →]

It was largely a matter of favor with the community that ultimately determined the fate of a microbrewery and one 7-Eleven in north Long Beach. Although plans to open Dutch’s Brewhouse garnered the support of a few people at the July 17 Long Beach Planning Commission meeting, a proposal to grant a permit that would allow one convenience-store franchise to sell wine and beer drew the ire of several residents.
A business’s ability to sell alcohol requires permits, paperwork and inspections from various entities, and the Planning Commission is one of the key governing entities in the approval process. Unfavorable decisions by this commission can be appealed to the City Council.
Both Dutch’s Brewhouse and the 7-Eleven are on Atlantic Avenue, but they are in different neighborhoods. The future site of Dutch’s Brewhouse is located at 4244 Atlantic Ave. [Read more →]

The Long Beach Police Department (LBPD) is seeking the public’s help in locating a suspect believed to have attacked a woman in the 4000 block of Atlantic Avenue on Wednesday, July 2 around 4:30pm.
According to police, the victim, a 32-year-old Long Beach resident, was wearing a black hijab, a cover worn by Muslim women over their head to conceal their hair and neck. She was parked in a shopping center parking lot adjacent to the alley that runs north and south and just west of the shopping center, and loading items into her car. It was then that she was approached from behind by a male suspect on foot, who took hold of her hijab. [Read more →]
