I hear the Broad Beach folks are going to be sued by the city of Manhattan Beach. Broad Beach ought to know better than to pick a fight with Manhattan Beach. Manhattan Beach fought the plastic bag manufacturers all the way to the state Supreme Court and won. Now their plastic bags are banned.

Broad Beach is not entitled to any sand until they open their beach to public, per the California Coastal Commission's directive. The CCC will deny the Broad Beach folks sand unless they comply

Broad Beach (not so broad) residents are trying to protect their ancient west-facing septic tanks under their homes. Instead of stealing sand, pay up and connect to the Malibu sewer system like the other Malibu residents did a long time ago. Import your sand from the Mojave desert like Seal Beach did to renourish their beach!

You and your malcontent lawyer ought to be ashamed of yourselves! You're not going to get away with this. See you in court! Get out your wallets.

The Broad Beach GHAD scammers finally gave up! They're now going to get their sand from land sources. Those bozos should have done that in the beginning. Greed is NOT good!
