To SMMUSD board,

In light of the recent disclosures of high levels of toxins at both MHS and Juan Carbrillo it is imperative that the SMMUSD board clear up a rumor that has been circulated within Malibu by District staff.

District staff has repeatedly told Malibu residents and representatives of the EPA that the District is not able to immediately start the removal of PCBs at the schools due to a Coastal Commission appeal introduced by the Malibu Community Alliance (MCA). This representation is not accurate.

The Malibu Tide rolled in to second place at its first USSSA tournament in Chino Hills on Saturday, Nov. 8, and Sunday, Nov. 9.

The Tide fell 12-7 in the championship match after battling its way up to the coveted opportunity to win a title.

The Tide won their first game of the tournament 6-2, but didn’t find the second game so easy to snag. Trailing 4-7 at the top of the sixth inning, a number of well performed hits put the Tide 8-7 at the bottom of the sixth, earning them a chance to battle in the quarterfinal game.
