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.

At Webster, Scott first learned about the Supreme Court in a class taught by Principal Phil Cott.
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.

The meticulous nature of Miller’s taste buds has earned Malibu Kitchen special distinction as one of the only eateries in Malibu to make it to its 14th birthday, which Miller is celebrating this week.
More than 400 members of the public participated in a Caltrans scoping meeting to discuss the proposed Liberty Canyon wildlife bridge, and not one person present openly opposed the project.
Instead, the plan to build a wildlife corridor over the 101 Freeway received universal acclaim from officials and the public at the two-hour event at King Gillette Ranch.
A few participants commented that the unanimous approval was unprecedented.
In the same room on Galahad Drive where 16-year-old Barbie Herron and Amber Laforet began their friendship, 22 years later, the pair returned to fill the space with a new set of memories, this time as business partners and co-founders of Head Regal.
“That room where I lived with Barbie for a summer when we were 16 became our first office,” Laforet said. “Basically, our business was born in one night over sushi. We came back into each other’s lives after all these years and we just absolutely connected — it was magnetic.”
