Source: Los Angeles Times

A 100-year-old building in Echo Park that served as a home for mostly ethnic religious groups was nearly destroyed in an early-morning fire that was intentionally set, officials said.

Forerunners for Christ church had been hosting church services and religious groups at the building in the 1600 block of North Morton Avenue for seven years and had cemented itself as part of the community.

Investigators determined that the fire was intentional, Humphrey said.

The church hosts two Latino groups, as well as 50 to 60 regular parishioners, who are mostly Filipino, Samoan and black, she said.

Homeowner sues pipeline firm in Santa Barbara County oil spill

Source: Los Angeles Times

Santa Barbara County homeowner is the latest party to file suit against the Texas owners of a pipeline that burst last month along the Gaviota coast, sending thousands of gallons of oil into the Pacific Ocean..

The suit claims Alexandra Geremia's home just north of Refugio State Beach has been "bombarded" with a steady stream of tar balls and oil sheen from the spill that prevents her from walking on the beach.

Calling the clean-up efforts near the home "unsatisfactory," the suit claims the spill will hurt the value of Geremia's property for years to come.

The corroded pipeline owned by Plains All American Pipeline ruptured May 19 and spilled roughly 101,000 gallons of crude along the coast near the picturesque state beach. About 21,000 gallons made its way from where the underground pipe is buried above U.S. 101 into a storm culvert and flowed into the Pacific.

Its hard to have any empathy for a 1%er who owns land on the beach in Santa Barbara but I have to give credit where credit is due!

Emergency officials were responding Tuesday afternoon to a ruptured pipeline that was estimated to have leaked 21,000 gallons of oil into the ocean off Santa Barbara County, authorities said..

By 3:45 p.m., the leak had left a four-mile-long sheen of oil extending about 50 yards into the waters along Refugio State Beach in Goleta, said Coast Guard Petty Officer Andrea Anderson.

The ruptured pipeline is operated by Plains All America Pipeline and runs along the coast near Highway 101, Coast Guard officials said. The leak was first reported to county fire officials about noon, and Coast Guard crews stopped the leak by 3 p.m., Anderson said.

Plains All America Pipeline could not be reached for comment.

Federal, state and local authorities have arrived at the scene to investigate the cause of the leak and coordinate cleanup efforts, said Alexia Retallack, spokeswoman for the California Office of Spill Prevention and Response.

Young woman and her horse screwed over by the system, can you help?

This friend of my daughter and her horse are totally getting screwed over by the system. She's living paycheck to paycheck and this horse is part of her recovery from numerous physical and other challenges.

May we please try to help her out?


Bunny has been my soul mate since she was 3 years old. Her 9th birthday, on July 3rd of this year, was spent with Bunny's vet who confirmed that she is now permanently blind in her left eye, and the neurological damage is so severe that she is dangerous to ride. Here is our story...

Bunny and I have been through many ups and downs. We have fallen and gotten back up, broke bones together in jumping accidents, and won championships with our jumping career. We have had to "start over" with working on the ground after issues and my surgery, and struggled to rebuild our way back up the jump poles. We have journeyed across the country together and moved to sunny Arizona from Connecticut.

Bunny is not just "a horse".

She is the glue that holds me together.

June 7th, 2014, Bunny and I were at a jumping in a horse show up in Flagstaff.

Three days later, June 10, my world collapsed.

The marijuana company across the street from the ranch where I stable Bunny did not correctly bolt down their roofing. The very common wind tore the sheets of metal off the roof, took the 5x10 sheets of metal over their fencing, across the street, and over into Bunny's paddock and over her fence. She scrambled to avoid the metal hurling towards her and ran into the metal fencing with her head, her body flipped over the fence into the next paddock, and she was unconscious for over 45 minutes. When she came-to, her tongue was hanging out of her mouth and she could not stand. After some time people managed to get her standing, and it took another hour and a half more before she was able to take a step.

My Bunny, my beautiful soul mate, is permanently blind in her left (Blue) eye. She has suffered severe neurological damage in which at first it was not certain she would even survive. She has survived, but the neurological damage has affected the connection between her brain and her back legs and the vet said that I need to be careful around her, and she is dangerous to ride.

I want to hop on her and fly over fences, but that is not in our cards now. The marijuana company is giving me the run-a-round and I need help with Bunny's medical bills, as well as a lawyer to get Justice for Bunny. Please help if you can, every little bit counts.
