This is Malibu’s only local daily news. It’s the   ((((  Monday  ))) edition of the news … from Radio Malibu  …. F-M 99 point 1 K B U U. Good morning … I’m Hans Laetz reporting.


Traffic delays of more than two hours greeted Malibu residents heading into Santa Monica or Los Angeles today.

The guy in one of those old broken down Winnebago campers … parked for weeks on the side of Pacific Coast Highway East of town … apparently decided to try to head into the city today.

Motorists stuck in today’s massive traffic jam can call the California Coastal Commission to let them know how much the coastal access fro inoperative recreational vehicles is appreciated. 

Their public information officer can be reached at (562) 833-5487.

Her email is noaki.schwartz@coastal.ca.gov . 

Next week’s City Council meeting … the last before the election … will see a major item come up. It’s the request by the owners of the Malibu Beach Inn to relocate their parking lot onto the inland Side of Pacific Coast Highway … to make room for a swimming pool in the parking lot. Details: http://www.radiomalibu.net/malibu-beach-inn-traffic-light/ 

A gigantic hotel … condo .. shopping center and office plan for the corner of Kanan Road and Agoura Road … goes up for public evaluation on Tuesday.  And we have a link to the Agoura Hills planning document here: http://www.ci.agoura-hills.ca.us/Home/Components/News/News/1706/36?backlist=%2fhome

10 early voting centers opened last weekend across L A County.

The nearest open voting center to Malibu was in Culver City … a 40 mile roundtrip from Malibu City Hall.  http://www.radiomalibu.net/40-mile-roundtrip-to-nearest/ 

Back to this year … if you want to vote next Saturday or Sunday … you can cast your ballot at West LA College in Culver City. Other locations also losted here:



Malibu residents are among others getting automated telephone calls claiming there is an error on the ballot … over Proposition 6.

That’s the gas tax initiative. 

Robocalls and mailers are alerting Los Angeles County voters about a so-called mistake on the ballot.

There is no mistake … and county officials are warning voters not to fall for the phone calls and mailers.

Supporters of Proposition 6 want to repeal an increase in fuel taxes and vehicle fees t… the $5 billion tax hike destined to fund in transportation projects.

They say the title on the ballots … “Eliminates certain road repair and transportation funding” … is misleading. 

They could have asked a court to change the wording … but they didn’t. 

To make it clear … a yes vote repeals the new gas tax … a no vote retains it.

The battle over language comes as a poll of likely voters shows the repeal effort trailing … 41 to 48 percent.
