  • The AYSO/Prostitution story literally seems like a storyline from that show Parks and Recreation. I work in land development and these whack jobs always show up at these hearings. And they’re always LOL entertaining.

  • Mike Watkins

    Traffic would be impacted minimally by a soccer field as is any other city that allows AYSO to use its fields on a regular basis. Am I surprised by ridiculous comments coming from a few West Torrance residents regarding this issue. No.

    LA should trade for the chef and his Galaxy dogs. Send Seattle a first round draft pick instead.
