Justices Seem Ready to OK Asking Citizenship on Census Of the children separated from their families at the border, they were always intended to be reunited, McAleenan said.Really a better system, as Ive said many times, would allow us to detain families together during fair and expeditious immigration proceedings and getting actual immigration results from courts, so thats whats missing from the current situation, he added in an interview from DHSs offices in the World Trade Center.

Grand Prix Set for Weekend
04/11/2019 6:38pm

By:Steve PropesIts been going strong for over 40 years. A large section of Shoreline Drive is closed down in anticipation of the 45th edition of the Grand Prix, attracting tens of thousands of IndyCar race fans to downtown Long Beach from April 12 through April 14.The new title sponsor, Acura has taken the place of Toyota Motors, which after forty years, has moved its headquarters from Torrance to Texas, thus dropping out. The move was telegraphed when Toyota dropped the pro/celebrity race in 2017. In the past, names like Bruce Jenner, Ted Nugent, Donny Osmond and Adam Corolla have won the celebrity side of the race that banged up more than its share of rides and excitement.Practice of the IndyCars will begin on Friday at 10 a.m. Along with other car and truck races, drift cars practice at 6:45 p.m. Drift has been part of the Grand Prix since 2005, the races will be on Friday and Saturday evening. Other events include a Friday night rock concert, a lifestyle expo and a kids zone with go-karts.The main event, the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach will start on Sunday at 1:42 p.m. and end at about 3:30 p.m.As with all past Grand Prix events, parking is a major challenge. Street parking anywhere near the race will be non-existent. Be aware of road closures or lane reductions, such as Alamitos Boulevard at Second Street. Public transportation is limited as the Blue Line is undergoing upgrading and is currently shut down. For those using Long Beach Transit, lines 91 and 93 are the best bet, going from east Long Beach to downtown, where a Passport bus is a free ride to the race entrance.Parking is available in the Marina lot, located on the south side of Shoreline Drive behind several grandstands. Enter off Ocean Boulevard and Alamitos Avenue. Passes are sold on a three-day basis. Parking is also available in the Shoreline lot, located west of the race circuit at the end of the 710 Freeway. A general admission three-day pass costs $95, or $147 for reserved seating. Single day tickets are also available from $33 on Friday to $90 on Sunday. Kids under 12 get free general admission with a paying adult. For more information, call the ticket office at 888-827-7333.stevebeachcomber.newsCategory: News

Bodell's Shoes Just Turned 60
04/11/2019 6:25pm

By:Steve Propes When Bodells Shoe Store opened at whats now known as Parkview Village, Ike was president, Alaska had just become a state and Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper had perished in an Iowa field, the Day the Music Died.Contemporary businesses like Thriftimart, Bob Adams, PD Carol Department Store, Roses Hardware, Thrifty Drug, Pan American Caf, Bergmans Radio and TV, Benchleys Gifts, all manner of successful retail store-fronts have come and gone.Current owner, Richard Bodell said his father, Lew Bodell worked at a full service gas station in Salt Lake City. An executive from the company that owned Leeds Shoes was so impressed by the service my dad gave him, he offered him a job. The only catch was hed have to move to California. He decided it was better than washing windows and checking oil. Bodell made the Leeds store in Long Beach the top producing California store. When they gave him an award, the executive whispered if you fail to perform, we can replace you.At that juncture, March 1, 1959, Bodell opened his own store. Richard Bodell bought the business from him over 20 years ago.Business was strong for a number of years, but, according to Bodell, Its been tough since 2008. At the end of 2007, we were just south of $1 million, but weve not been close since. The dip in the economy in 2008 and online competition have been major factors.Bodell tried online marketing, but gave that up about four years ago. Small business, thats your middle class. People that take a risk, open up a store to show the value of human encounter. Its nice to have a one and one. He has one full time, two part time employees and hires young people from both colleges and high schools.Management of Parkview Village named two routes through the center in honor of Jacks Shoe Repairs Richard Brown and Lew Bodell. It had a historical meaning, a sense of accomplishment, said Bodell. Its hard to stay in here for 60 years.Bodell emphasizes good product and customer service. I try to give the best customer service. We fit and measure feet, all kinds of things, and offer a product that serves the needs of the customer, be it orthopedic or other specialized service. Follow-up services include everything from repair to shining shoes. It keeps me on my toes. If the soles split, Ill resole them.The store carries brands made in the U.S., Europe or Israel. Some brands have changed. For instance, Clarks made a quality shoe from 1965 to 1990, but when the family closed their manufacture in England and Ireland, the brand moved to China, which has compromised the quality of the shoe.Styles are recycled, so much you can do. Fashion works in a circular fashion, 70s platforms for women are back now. Its a matter of holding on to things long enough.stevebeachcomber.newsCategory: News
