'it's a girl!' meet l.a.'s newest mountain lion kitten — p-54


the latest addition to the santa monica mountains’ troop of mountain lions is a furry, 4-week-old kitten birthed by a widely known cougar whose photo was snapped as she feasted on a deer.the female kitten, named p-54, is believed to be the product of inbreeding, which researchers said is a growing phenomenon in the santa monica mountains animals because of a shrinking genetic pool. the kitten’s mother, p-23, likely mated with her mother’s half-sibling, p-30, according to the national park service.“the good news is that local mountain lions continue to reproduce successfully,” biologist jeff sikich said in a statement. “unfortunately, these animals are stuck on an island of habitat, with very little movement in and out of the santa monica mountains, which has led to multiple cases of inbree

santa monica can't be a slumlord to its airport for the next decade

stephen miller was no hero fighting left-wing oppression at santa monica high sc


stephen miller would eagerly tell you he’s from a liberal paradise, and i’d have to agree with him. growing up in los angeles, i have always noticed my views on gun control and women’s rights rarely provoked a challenge. locally, i have been represented by women and minorities in congress and on my city council.comfortable as i am with my hometown’s reputation, i came away from reading the times’ piece last month on president trump’s thirtysomething advisor with a bad taste in my mouth. miller — a 2003 graduate of santa monica high school, where i am a senior — comes across as a heroic figure, a conservative treading water in a sea of overwhelming liberalism. readers could be forgiven for believing the rest of santa monica high school’s student body to be a bunch of “too-cool-for-school” s
