Joe Jost’s Antler Lighting Continues
12/05/2019 10:16pm

By:Kirt Ramirez The antlers are lit up for Christmas at Joe Josts.During a football game on a packed Sunday afternoon, Dec. 1, an employee powered-up a strand of old-fashioned, colored Christmas lights, draped on an old pair of deer antlers. The crowd stopped whatever they were doing to watch the light-up at 3 p.m. and some even took pictures.Most of the bulbs glowed, but some did not.For those who correctly guessed the number of working bulbs they got a free beer.This custom at the rustic tavern at 2803 E. Anaheim St. has gone on for many years. Employees and customers recall the antler lightings as far back as they can remember, but no one seemed to know exactly why or when the unconventional tradition started.Original owner Joe Jost founded the Long Beach saloon in 1924. His maternal grandson, Ken Buck, owns the pub today.I am 69, grew up in Joes and this tradition has been done as far as I can remember, Buck said through email.The lights are lit the 1st of December and turned off the 31st, he added. At this time all the lights are re-tightened. Over the next 11 months, probably due to street vibration, some lights loosen. A complimentary beer goes to the correct choice.Asked why the number three was chosen, as in 3 p.m., for the lights to come on, Buck did not have an answer.Jost was born in Istranfold, Hungary, which is present-day Yugoslavia and at age 12 he had a choice of either becoming a priest or getting a job, according to a Joe Jost the Man article written by Bucks wife, Cathleen in 1994, a write-up available at www.joejosts.com.Regarding how many of the 15 lights would illuminate, Fourth District Councilman Daryl Supernaw gave the public an opportunity to guess and win prizes via his weekly emailed newsletter. Guesses had to be submitted via a form by 3 p.m. Dec. 1.The five participants with the closest guesses will each win chances for a Joe Josts $20 gift certificate, Supernaw wrote. The five winners will be announced in our Dec. 6th Go Fourth Friday newsletter.Meanwhile, a landmark known for its cold beer, root beer, Polish sausage sandwiches, roasted Marmions peanuts and famous pickled eggs, Buck said more than 20,000 Joe Josts pickled eggs are sold during the Christmas season.And the annual Christmas T-shirt remains a popular item this time of the year, Buck said.The sports bar turned 95 this year and in celebration of the anniversary, We donated 50 of sales that day to the Prostate Cancer Foundation, Buck added.Russ Blayney worked at Joe Josts during his college years from 1985 to 1989. The place is special to him, as he met his wife there. He remains a regular customer.I started in 85 and we were doing the antlers back then, Blayney said, while sporting a Joe Josts reindeer hat with battery-operated red lights.Wed dust off the old-school bulbs, he said of the antler display. People would gather to see how many lights would come on.He said many of the current customers are people he knew from his time working there in the 1980s.Ive been coming here since 1975, said Rudolfo Nuez. This place never changes.A former Long Beach resident, Nuez drops by Joe Josts at least twice a month when hes in the area.I have to stop here and get a beer, pretzels and eggs, he said.And he arranges to meet with friends at the pub whenever possible.Nuez said he has watched the different generations come in over the years.Mariano Bonilla has gone to Joe Josts for 40 years. He used to bring his children and then grandchildren. His 23-year-old grandson visits on his own.Its a good place, Bonilla said. Its a family-oriented place.kirtbeachcomber.newsCategory: News

'Keep the Breakwater"
12/05/2019 10:12pm

Army Corp Says....By:Eric BaileyThe United States Army Corps of Engineers presented a preliminary report Nov. 25 after three years of research that suggests keeping the controversial breakwater intact.The East San Pedro Bay Ecosystem Restoration Study which commenced in 2016, is the first open ocean ecosystem restoration study to use the Army Corps new 3x3x3 feasibility study model.The report focuses on a Tentatively Selected Plan, which proposes the corps first open-ocean ecosystem restoration project in the nation. The plan looks to deliver an assortment of reefs, and eelgrass beds, referred to as the Reef Restoration Plan.This is the culmination of a 14-year project to use science and data to present potential solutions to ecosystem restoration and water quality, said Tom Modica, acting city manager. We thank the Army Corps for working with the city to study this critically important question and encourage the community to review the scientific study and participate in the public comment period.Public comments will be available from Nov. 29 through Jan. 27, 2020, and two meetings will also be held on Dec. 9 at the Aquarium of the Pacific. The meetings will be held from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.The breakwater, originally erected in 1941 during Naval occupation of the bay, has drawn its share of criticism calling to question its necessity.Organizations such as the Surfrider Foundation of Long Beach advocate for the removal of the breakwater, claiming that the wall breaks natural ocean currents, breaks waves, and prevents natural circulation that would provide a natural filtration system that would result in a cleaner shoreline.The foundation strongly opposed the proposals of the preliminary report and even prompted Mayor Robert Garcia to sound off on the matter via his Twitter account Nov. 25.I am incredibly disappointed with the results and conclusions made by the Army Corps, Garcia said. Ive agreed with many members of the community who believe that modifications to the breakwater could lead to ecosystem restoration, better water quality and recreational opportunities.A copy of the drafted Integrated Feasibility report is available at each branch library as well as City Hall. The document will be available to the public upon request until Jan. 27, 2020.The city will then incorporate public comments and convene with the Army Corps to create a final report.For more information on the report, visit www.spl.usace.army.mil/Missions/Civil-Works/Projects-Studies/East-San-Pe... or send public comments to ESPBusace.army.mil, with the subject line East San Pedro Ecosystem Restoration Feasibility Study Draft IFR Review Comments.ericbeachcomber.newsCategory: News

The Spruce Goose and the Scorpion
12/05/2019 10:08pm

By:Steve Propes Years after Long Beach lost the Spruce Goose in July 1992, another transportation attraction in the Queen Mary milieu, the Scorpion submarine, is slated for removal, but for entirely different reasons.Two years ago, the leasee of the sub, Urban Commons, unveiled a plan for a $250 million entertainment complex on the bay front next to the Queen Mary with a 2,400-foot-long boardwalk, a new small-boat marina, cafes, bars and shops. The plan called for a 200-room hotel, an amphitheater for concerts and nearly 700,000 square feet of retail space.The co-founder of Urban Commons said there were plans to develop the area now occupied by the submarine into a beach club feature, with a sandy beach, a pool and a refreshment area, accessible to visitors to the property as well as to guests of the hotel. All that remains of these plans is a listing submarine infested with racoons, having been off-limits to tourists for several years.To anyone with a lingering memory of the acquisition of the Spruce Goose, the dome in which it was housed, and the plans for Disney Port and Disney Sea, which grew out of the Spruce Goose, these recreational promises must reverberate as a bad dream.Nearly 40 years ago, the Spruce Goose the Hercules HK-1 flying boat, the worlds largest aircraft was acquired by the California Aero, a move that prevented it from being cut up in little pieces according to Long Beach businessman John Deats.After Howard Hughes died, the original plan was to cut it up and give it to various air museums in the country. Then Walter Drew of Antique Motor News went to the original Spruce Goose hangar in the Port of Long Beach to announce that Hughes Summa Corporation would donate the plane to the Southern California chapter of the Aero Club.One of the Aero Club members, Jack Wrather, made a pledge to construct the dome if the Aero Club would provide maintenance. It took a couple of years to build the dome and move in the Spruce Goose in 1980.There was a big party in the aft deck of the Queen Mary. I watched them bring the Spruce Goose by barge, helped by Herman the German, a large harbor crane. Then they closed the side of the dome.Deats recalled while in the dome, he was allowed to sit in the pilots seat and to literally hang from the rafters, snapping numerous photos of the gigantic aircraft. The Spruce Goose was on display for a good number of years. Deats said. The Spruce Goose and the dome were immaculately maintained.The California Aero Club awarded ownership of the Spruce Goose to the Evergreen Aviation Museum in Oregon and its removal and transfer was approved by the clubs board in early July 1992. It upset me the Aero Club was selling the plane. The dome was on city land. The president of the club, Nissen Davis, a McDonnell Douglas executive, sold it to Evergreen Transportation in Oregon. About the sale, Davis said We do not trust the City of Long Beach, said Deats.Wrather had financed the Disneyland Hotel after Disney had exhausted his credit line building the Disneyland theme park. The hotel was completed in October 1955, and immediately shared the success of Disneyland. When Disney later attempted to buy the hotel, Wrather refused to sell.Wrather had envisioned a mini-Disneyland in the port with all sorts of attractions. After Wrather died in 1984, Wrathers widow played hardball, making them take the whole package, the hotel and the rights to the Spruce Goose attraction. Disney did not want the Queen Mary and the other features. After giving Disney Sea a shot in the late 80s, Disney kept the Disneyland Hotel, jettisoned the Queen Mary deal in 1991 and informed the Aero Club it no longer wished to display the Hercules aircraft.Before the transfer of the airplane to Evergreen, Killingsworth Presentations hoped to open a museum with a bunch of rides and attractions on the point where the Queen Mary and the dome are. They invited the press down to a presentation in the dome, it was awesome, audio and video were stunning. They planned to have historic airplanes and replicas inside the dome, rides and attractions, said Deats. Cam Killingsworth could not be reached for comment.I went to the ends of the earth to save the plane, but the owners of the Spruce Goose said, We do not trust the City of Long Beach. Disney got lied to by the city, which was controlled by the Port of Long Beach, said Deats. They were told the shipyard was not going to be closed, though plans to expand the harbor on land Disney needed for its project were afoot. The shipyard closed in 1997. If not for those lies, wed have a major Disney attraction right now.stevebeachcomber.newsCategory: News
