Scott Stewart, a Malibu native, will serve as a law clerk to Justice Clarence Thomas on the Supreme Court of the United States from 2015-2016.

Stewart has lived most of his life in Malibu. He attended pre-school at the Malibu Presbyterian Church and then Webster Elementary School. Stewart enjoyed many fun years at Webster, but none was more memorable than his third-grade year, when his teacher was his mother, Kris. At Webster, Scott first learned about the Supreme Court in a class taught by Principal Phil Cott.

Following a series of heavy rains throughout Malibu and Southern California in recent weeks, Pacific Coast Highway near the Ventura County line — between Yerba Buena Road and Las Posas Road — will remain closed for three to four more weeks, according to CalTrans.

Longtime Malibu artist and surfer Warren Long has died. He was 62. 

Long, best known for his whimsical paintings and furniture that featured fish, mermaids, angels and flying pigs, was also a teacher. He worked at the Malibu Garden School in the 1990s and his Big Rock beach studio — full of paintings and sketches of the found objects collected along the shore that he used as sculptural elements in his work — was always open to students and visitors.
