“His was a voice that had its own footnotes,” Douglas Kmiec, Our Lady of Malibu parishioner, said with a laugh that reverberated through the crowd that filled the movie theater, as his fellow parishioners and neighbors watched Kmiec on screen at the premier of “Radical Kindness: The Life of John Sheridan,” a film documenting OLM’s Mongsignor, the late John V. Sheridan.

The Malibu Village was acquired by an East Coast-based real estate investment and management company, Jamestown, for an undisclosed sum Thursday, May 22, after a successful deal with seller KRE Capital, the shopping center’s now-previous owner.

“We went to Jamestown because we thought they could be vested to bring a great retail experience to the community and keep with what our goals were to the community,” said Matt Khoury, KRE Capital founder. “We thought they would be ideally suited as they are probably the top urban retailer expert in the country.”

The Firestone Fieldhouse at Pepperdine University is nothing to write home about. Much of the seating consists of wooden benches that look like church pews and the space feels cramped overall. The arena feels more like a glorified high school gym than the site for Division 1 college sports events in an affluent town like Malibu.

Tris Imboden, of the band Chicago, has traveled around the world and back behind a set of drums.

But at home in Malibu, he is able to unwind a bit, and he recently offered his expert opinion to young, aspiring musicians during the Malibu Rotary Club’s annual choral competition at Pepperdine last month. It was here that the Surfside caught up with Imboden. 

“I’m delighted to serve the community of Malibu by judging this competition,” Imboden said. “I’m not able to give back as much as I wish I could because often I am on the road.”

After four years of becoming the star water polo player for the Malibu Sharks, Owen Franz was burnt out.

Franz, 18, not only competed at the high school level, but was also a member of various club teams and an Olympic development program. 

When his high school career was coming to a close, he began having doubts about his passion for the sport. That seemed to have started at the end of his junior year, in the wake of the Sharks’ devastating loss in the CIF Finals, when many of Franz’s close friends and teammates graduated.

Look around Malibu’s beaches and restaurants this summer and, amongst the locals and tourists, you may find a group of young Malibuites, joined by one newcomer from Maui, who are sometimes in love, sometimes enemies, occasionally frenemies, but always living a dramatic life amidst their days of surfing and hanging out.  

You may have stumbled upon the filming of the miniseries “Malibu Surf,” which debuted this spring on AwesomenessTV.

If a tire on your golf cart catches a nail over a holiday weekend, chances are pretty good Douglas Randall can still be there in 20 minutes to fix it.

It’s no guarantee, but Randall – a Malibu resident as well as owner and primary laborer of Malibu Custom Carts – firmly believes in providing reliable service to Malibu’s golf-cart goers as much, and as consistently, as possible.

Claudia Lane, 14, is a sophomore and the top athlete on Malibu High School’s cross country team. She is ranked No. 1 in the state of California.

My favorite thing is just that feeling crossing the finish line. I also love running in practice and seeing all the beautiful scenery. I’m so grateful for this sport.

What made you first get into it?
