The Beach Reporter tbrnews.com. One of the South Bay's better free newspapers, announced they have a web site. Small at first, but will grow. Stupid thing: it's reported in a story at the bottom of page 44. Like, don't plaster it on the cover AND on every page next to the title. Keep it a secret. Street Zebra did the same thing. The Palso Verdes Peninsula News and the Los Angeles Independent are in here also, with room for more. They did all have Food sections. Free.
Random Lengths - San Pedro area. Email only at email@example.com. Free some places.
Over the Bridge - San Padro www.ptconnect.com . . Started 3/25/99 as a 12-page, pull-out section in the Long Beach Press-Telegram newspaper. Lots of ads, some news. Appears every last Thursday of the month.
South Bay Magazine - www.southbaymag.com/index2.htm and www.southbaymag.com/links.htm . . don't remember, maybe on web only.
The 5/2/99 Earthlink radio show mentioned a new quarterly magazine - either Southland or South Land - about southen California, but I can't find a URL. I'll keep looking.
