Kofin has had to travel to other cities such as Venice to get what she calls her medicine. But that changed last week with the grand opening of a marijuana dispensary where she lives.

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.

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.”
