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 →]
