By Contributing Writer | | PUBLISHED: April 23, 2018 at 2:36 pm | UPDATED: April 24, 2018 at 6:03 pm By Sam Gnerre, Daily Breeze History Columnist For decades, surfers have caught waves at Haggerty’s, a popular break at Malaga Cove in Palos Verdes Estates. Many approach the spot by walking down the bluff just below The Neighborhood Church parking lot. So who was this Haggerty, and what was his relationship to the picturesque church above the beach? “Haggerty” actually was J.J. Haggarty, a prominent figure in the mercantile trade in Los Angeles in the first part of the 20th century. (The “e” misspelling seems more common than the correct “a” spelling.) John Joseph Haggarty was born in London, England, on May 24, 1860. As a youth, he was trained in the dry goods trade, a calling he continued to pursue when he came to America in 1887, and to Los Angeles in 1902. He opened his first small clothing store, the New York Cloak and Suit House, in … [Read more...] about South Bay History: Haggerty’s is a popular South Bay surfing spot. But who was Haggerty?
The 2018 Nissan Rogue Sport, while sharing the Rogue name, platform and numerous advanced safety and security features, stands on its own as a stylish, nimble, fun-to-drive and affordable compact SUV. By G. CHAMBERS WILLIAMS III If an automaker has a hot-selling vehicle these days, it doesn’t hurt to offer a variant, especially at a lower price. That’s exactly what Nissan did with last year’s introduction of the Rogue Sport, a slightly shorter and smaller version of the Rogue compact crossover, based on the specs of the previous generation of the same car. The Rogue Sport continues for 2018 as a strictly five-passenger slightly junior-size version of the regular Rogue, but with a lower starting price – just $21,640 (plus $995 freight), compared with $24,800 for the bigger brother. Those prices are for the entry level S model of both vehicles, with a continuously variable transmission and front-wheel drive. Nissan added the Rogue Sport for 2017 after keeping the … [Read more...] about Nissan Rogue Sport compact crossover is smaller, costs less than regular Rogue

HOUSEHOLDERS caught dumping rubbish illegally will soon face on-the-spot fines of up to £400 as part of a new crackdown on fly-tipping. It is hoped the new fines will discourage families from using rogue “man with a van” deals to get rid of their household waste. According to the Daily Mail, fly-tipping incidences surged seven per cent last year to over one million – with more than two thirds of the waste coming from Britain’s homes. The new spot fines will come into effect in autumn, with the hope that it will make it easier for councils to punish offenders. It is currently illegal to allow unauthorised people to remove household rubbish. However, councils rarely reach the prosecution stage due to high costs associated with taking a case to court. On announcing the measures, environment minister Therese Coffey described fly-tipping as an “anti-social crime that has blighted the countryside and our streets”. She added that the new spot fines … [Read more...] about Householders to soon face £400 on-the-spot fines for dumping litter illegally
