In the blink of an eye, everything can change.
In Southern California, it happened again and again and again — and all in a matter of mere days. By now, Election Day seems a distant memory, as so much tragedy has occurred since Nov. 6, and what could have been a week with positive news — with more money for Malibu schools, an impressive showing of democracy leading to the approval of Measure G, and two new City Council members in the wings — has been anything but.
On Monday, Oct. 22, the Malibu City Council will review an ordinance that could ban the sale, distribution and use of balloons within the city.
Adoption of this ordinance could negatively impact many of the local businesses that over the years have provided the colorful, festive balloons used to celebrate birthdays, graduations, anniversaries, the birth of a child and so many other special life moments.
