Paseo Del Mar
According to the National Association for Sport and Physical Education only one in three children are physically active every day with a staggering 12.5 million children classified as obese by the CDC. A major contributor to this apparent malaise is the daily dose of TV, computer and console-based entertainment beloved by children. Keeping kids entertained can be difficult at the best of times but there’s clearly no doubt that a child’s daily average of some seven and a half hours in front of a screen, in one form or another, should give parents pause for thought.
With a big chunk of their San Pedro neighborhood lying in the harbor, neighbors met with city officials Thursday night to decide how to clean up and rebuild after the Paseo del Mar collapse.
The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors agreed Tuesday to ask the governor to declare a state of emergency in San Pedro due to a landslide that took out part of an oceanfront road.
Onlookers were urged to keep away from San Pedro’s Paseo del Mar Monday after heavy rain sent a large portion of the previously shuttered cliff-top road sliding into the ocean.
Crews are working to stop a dangerous landslide on Paseo Del Mar between Western and Weymouth avenues.
