Vast numbers of velella velella, tiny jellyfish-like colonies of hydrozoas, continue to wash ashore on Malibu beaches. 

Some headlines have proclaimed that the velella are “invading” or “taking over” Malibu, but these marine organisms aren’t exactly invaders, since they have no means of self-propulsion and can only go where the currents and winds drive them. This explains their common name: by-the-wind sailor, and their Latin name, which is derived from the word vela, a ship’s sail.

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.”

After a 10-year legal dispute, a hotly contested Carbon Beach accessway is officially open to the public.

In the 1980s, before Malibu was incorporated as a city, the California Coastal Commission issued two development permits to Lisette and Norman Ackerberg, allowing for the construction of a house, pool, tennis court, and a 140-foot long seawall on the couple’s Carbon Beach properties. The permit required dedication of a public pathway to the beach as a condition of construction. The house was built, the beach access was not.

And today, for Ride of the Week, lets put up our dukes as we battle meat vs. veggie and Veloster vs. well, other non-Velosters. Who will be the champ? Who will be exalted as the King of Kool? Who was Elvis, really? All this and more on this week’s Ride of the Week.
