First day of school today.

And malibu has two new schools.

Malibu Elementary School … first day of school in what used to be Point Dume Elementary.

And Malibu Middle School … partly in the new building on the Malibu High School campus.

Which of course used to be named Malibu park Junior High School.

Even though fewer kids will be heading to the Malibu park campus … as the elementary school there has been closed … we can reasonably expect some traffic confusion.

That;’s because the drop off and pick up lane in front of the high school has been closed. 

It has been relocated to what used to be the parking lot in front of the old elementary school. 

Expect more traffic on the Point … much more traffic.

200-plus new students will be dropped off and picked up there every school day.

Plans for a school bus to brings kids in from Malibu Park and other areas of the city collapsed … even though kids from those neighborhoods will now be attending


Malibu’s sizeable number of skateboarders will get a temporary skate park … possibly by next summer … at Bluffs Park.

And the city council voted yesterday to build a second … permanent skate park … also at Bluffs Park … later.  Details:

The city of LA is going to take major steps to clear homeless encampments from canyons in the Santa Monica Mountains and Hollywood Hills.

Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti yesterday announced a plan to make it easier for authorities to clear homeless encampments in severe fire zones.

The mayor wants to change LA ordinances to allow the LAPD to issue oral warnings for people to move out of high fire risk areas.

And not just on red flag days.

The mayor yesterday said the homeless encampments “threaten to leave more Angelenos homeless when their lives and properties are consumed by flames.”

The LA Times reports that Los Angeles has least 114,000 structures in the highest fire hazard zones

Two years agio … a himeless encampment fire near the 405 Freeway in Sepulveda Pass estroyed six homes in Bel Air … one of L.A.'s richest ZIP Codes.

And this summer … a large fire in the brush in the Sepulveda Basin flood ocntrol area required 100 firefighters and two helicopters to put out.

displaced dozens of homeless people.


Some members of Malibu’s CERT teams have completed training … enter now offering to visit houses to make home assessments for fire dangers… and offer suggestions to reduce those dangers.

The City of Malibu is now offering a free "Home Ignition Zone Assessment Program" to help residents harden their homes against flying embers.

The Woolsey Fires ent burning embers and airborne tree limbs out a few miles ahead of the fire front.

Typically … more than half of homes lost during a wildfire catch fire due to flying embers — not direct flame contact or radiant heat.

Modifying landscaping around the home, sealing eaves and moving flammable materials away from structures are examples of simple and often inexpensive ways to make homes safer from wildfires.

Some of Malibu's volunteer inspectors from the Malibu Community Emergency Response Team and Arson Watch have completed a 16-hour "Assessing Structure Ignition Potential from Wildfire" class.

This was offered through the National Fire Protection Association.

It taught them hoe to identify specific areas that wildfire embers can find receptive fuels in and around a home

Residents can request an inspection . 

The volunteers will make recommendations on how to make it more fire resistant, the press release said. 


Finally … the world’s greatest rock and roll band plays in concert in pasadena this evening. 

The Rolling Stones concert was originally scheduled for earlier this summer … let was postponed due to mick Jagger's cardiac condition.

Jaegers back in form.

The concert is back on schedule.
