Misc. South Bay 11/6/00

Quake info sites: and

San Pedro - the locals pronounce it San Pea-dro as in Portuguese, not San Pay-dro as in Spanish.
3/13/99 - A group called HarborVote is doing a study, looking into a split of Harbor City, San Pedro, and Wilmington away from the City of Los Angeles to form their own city. They don't have a web site, but their email is
6/4/99 - This week some paper reported they registered 25% of the local voters and filed some important papers which allows then to have an election in a few years. I forgot the details. The June 11, 1999 Random Lengths suggests they might have enough valid signatures it enter the next phase which will be done by the Harbor Study Foundation, Inc.

10/6/99 - Update - Houston gets the next NFL team cause they paid the most. Good luck to them. L.A. was in the lead till about 7/99, but the price was too high.

3/17/99 - Looks like the next NFL football team will move into the L.A. area, but I don't think Carson is the right place. Please correct me, but I don't think any city has made money from a sports team; in fact they lose money. Carson is too small a city to lose any money. What happens when the team moves, as is sure to happen? Also, the city is too small to support two malls and, with no restaurants or other attractions and only a few hotels, I can't see how the city could make any money with a team. And, what a mess the extra traffic would create. What about crime? Can anyone suggest other problems with the plan; how long is your arm? Sounds like a dream that's sure to turn into financial and other nightmares.
