This traffic alert.

Numerous big double dirt haulers are working at malibu High School today.

They were lined up on Pacific Coast Highway at Zuma Beach this morning.

Heavy truck operations are underway on Morning View Drive in front of the school.

Malibu high school is currently undergoing an $80 million reconstruction at the front of the school.

And there is talk about floating another bond issue to rebuild the back half of the school.

State and federal officials have given the all clear to demolish the foundation at the front of the campus … and haul it away to a regular landfill.

There are tiny amounts of PCB … a suspected cancer-causing chemical … in some of that foundation.

We have a call in to the school district to clarify.


The L A County District Attorney is not answering any major questions today about why it raided the house and surf shop owned by Malibu city councilman Jefferson Wagner.

Malibu’s straw ban goes into effect today.

No more plastic straws … plastic forks … plastic spoons or plastic whatever’s in your drinks.

Not illegal … as near as we can tell.
