Costco to Build New Store

According to Nick Green, of the Daily Breeze, another big change in the wind. Costco has filed an application with the city to build a larger store with more parking. This will be built on the 23-acre parcel on Lomita Boulevard adjacent to its current location. The new store would total 161,500 square feet on 17.5 acres. The current store is 148,000-square-foot store and features 761spaces compared to the new store which will offer 874 parking spaces for the shoppers convenience.

Graffiti on the Hermosa Strand

I was just reading the article in the Daily Breeze about the graffiti on the wall on the strand of Hermosa Beach. How dare they!! I believe those responsible are calling it Funsters. If it looks like duck, walks like a duck and swims like a duck it is a duck.

In other words by drawing on the walls in Hermosa, whether it be with calk or spray paint it is graffiti and the ones doing it should be accountable financially for it.

Sigisfredo Moreno power-washes off a long stretch of “Funism” chalk art along the Strand in Hermosa Beach on Thursday morning. The company he works for is contracted by Hermosa Beach to remove graffitti. Funism group had planned to clean up their art, but the city beat them to it. (Brad Graverson — Staff Photographer)

Last week, many city workers pressure-washed a chalk mural that began near 22nd Street and stretched a few blocks along The Strand. Supposedly, K.P. and several other Funism followers had planned to wash the drawings that they had done days before, but the city got there first.

So bill the “artists” for this and let them pay for the cleanup. The city, along with most residents and visitors consider it an eyesore. By allowing this and it continuing , you are inviting others to come in and add their graffetti. Let’s remember, that those who use spray paint and tag also consider their work “art”.
