"Attempts in the seventies and eighties. Right now, sixty five in Laguna beach at sixty eight Tustin seventy five and Fontana and seventy one in north Hollywood. We lead local live from the KFI twenty four hour newsroom. I'm Debra Mark. John. Johny Ken show. John kobylt and Ken chiampou KFI AM, six to catch away today. It will be back on Monday. We're going to start up with Andrew mollenbeck from KFI news, because there was a twist in the Hermosa beach fire story there is there is a huge fire that broke out at two in the morning yesterday. Thursday in Hermosa beach, right on the strand, which is the row of homes that, that face the water and they originally had arrested a guy. Michael cadre is the suspect in setting the fire, and some of the flames were shooting hundred fifty feet in the air and burned one house entirely was a construction project, and then four other homes were also damaged. Well caught flus released and they have a new suspect. And this guy's name is Keith yester-, and he was arrested late last night. So let's get back to sort all this out. Andrew. How are you? Hey doing fine. Good afternoon. So we've learned some things about this, Keith yester- and also some questions that something doesn't quite add up. So I'll talk you through it a little bit here. He's a fifty year old guy and it said that he's from San Diego. But the interesting part of that is that he has a criminal record in the south bay. That goes back for decades so trying to work out. Why is it said that he's from the Lakisha area even in the press releases it says he's from leukaemia? But if you go back in this criminal record that I pulled just this afternoon says that he's been convicted of crimes in the south bay area going all the way back to nineteen eighty eight and we're talking about court cases in Torrance in Inglewood and Hermosa beach. And that was really the other interesting thing because you indicated that somebody was originally arrested that younger man was released and how they came about to find. Yesterday was they got some surveillance video right about the time that fire started in the construction area and officers looking at this surveillance video said they immediately recognized yester- because they had had a number of runnings with him in the past. So. One reason or another. He may be described as being from the San Diego area, but he's so well known to police in Hermosa beach of had run ins with him that they see us, surveillance image and the immediately said, oh, yeah, we know the guy and then when you pull up the criminal record you see court cases from the late eighties all the way through the mid two thousands. Could they see on the surveillance video that he started the fire or was he watching the fire, how do they know for sure? He's the suspect of the arts. They saw him in and around the building where it started. I don't know if they haven't certainly described to, to me that they saw him throw a match or throw gas on it or anything like that on just asking because the day before they thought it was Michael fun. I wondered wondered when they had an interview with him and the fire investigators.

What was that to Luca lake school or something like that? Yeah. I know where that is. And it's a little elementary school off for do go and co-anchor, and they're probably about twenty thirty people outside, and I was walking around the with my phone recording. And most people were cool there. But some guys that, hey, what are you doing here? And then a woman said, hey, where do you recording? I said it's for KFI, and she was a teacher probably in her. I dunno late fifties early sixties. And she said, what's KFI? And I said, let me guess NPR. She said, oh, yeah. I said, okay. I get that. I got the vibe they're pretty quickly. But it was it was great. But I was there for about twenty minutes, and then the rules were laid down and one of two of the rules that I'd broke one of them. Is you have to stay on the sidewalk? I didn't know that we were of that rule. I left the sidewalk I I was not following the rules. I broke both that rule Volvos broke that rule. But I also when people would honk to support the union, I would I would swear at those people and tell them, hey, if you really gave an F about these kids, you get out of that heated car and get into the rain with us. And that's not something that I did. I started using all kinds of language Adam because I was pissed I'm sitting there in the rain. I don't even have a kid that school. Well, that was one of the amazing parts about it was what a soggy started was to the first day of the strike. And I got out there about six forty five this morning, and where I was probably more than one hundred people were there teachers parents students, and what is it fifty degrees? Maybe it's coming down rain, and it really didn't let up all day. But there was a big turnout. I know you're gonna talk to and Carlo a little bit. How many people showed up downtown? But I went around to all the school districts are all the schools and one after another you saw quite a large presence one of the people. I talked to wasn't English teacher who was part of the last strike thirty years ago. And so he was out there this morning, and I was talking to him about you know, what difference between now. And then and this is what he had to say. Now, it's class size. My period. Six is fifty five students. For everyone. I do by way of creativity. Bend from the cafeteria from the thrown out desk that were personally broken. I see the kids are wonderful. I love teaching and I won't turn them away. Until the district tells me I have to and that was sort of the relevant interaction. I had today because that really is the central point from the Union's perspective. It's not really so much about money. It's about the class size in at an English teacher talking about I have fifty five students. He later in that same interview he told me that he spends eighteen hours over the weekend. Grading papers because he has somebody students in that class. So that really is the central rub here. How many kids are in class, and how many staff they have one of their big question. I just got an update from the school district here. Just a couple of minutes ago about how many students showed up and figures from them. They they say that far less.

Check with Angel Martinez because a Thursdays suck and be. It's the Thursday before Christmas. So I would imagine Angel Martinez. It sucks even more. Eight. She disappeared already. Okay. We'll check in with Angel Martinez at a little bit. As I mentioned with John and Ken just before their show ended in this program begins a cavalcade of stars tonight. Let's start with one of the biggest stars of all KFI news. Reporter Andrew mollenbeck, Andrew. What's up, man? Andrew mollenbeck connected there. We go. Hey your way to charitable star star. Absolutely. Absolutely. So I remember when you and I were just shooting billiards together. I'm not a star. I know you were at another station. And then you went you left L A altogether. As in D C, you returned you returned an absolute star. I missed you. Are you still are you? We'll get to your story of the year. If you will. You still take public transportation more than almost anything else when you're not working at least. I do take it a lot not as much as I used to what I used to live on the subway line. Now, moved a little farther out. But I still take it. Sometimes. Yeah. I we talk on the show a lot about how L A public transportation. Is leaves a lot to be desired you you were here, and you got an on the ground floor. Basically how is it now compared to say twenty years ago? I have to say that it's not as nice in my experience. Just because of some of the things that you experience whether fights breaking out or people drinking on the trains or the filth. That's just been my experience used to have so much fun taking it what I hate sitting in traffic like everybody in what I lived. Why lived in mid city for a while lived in Koreatown for awhile downtown, and it was really convenient. So it was really fun then but more recently when I've been taking it always something seems to happen. Whether it's seeing human waste or a fight breakout. So I guess I'm a married, man. So there's a little less inclination to take in the middle of that. Yeah. Yeah. Looking at NBC four right now random Redline attack is is the headline on the lower third and there've been a couple of taxes here on the train. So some of those things I don't remember from a long time ago. But I still do take it when I can. But yeah. Don't they gave enjoyed it as much and in one thing that we've seen in L A county is that ridership has continued to drop. Across the board. And okay. So we talking about this particular segment here, we were kind of kicking around ideas. And this is you know, this I host tonight, I'm gonna host tomorrow night. And then I won't be hosting again until after the new year. So I wanna talk about like stories of the year. I wanna talk to you. I'm gonna talk Corbin Carson, Monica Rix and other reporters Robert Kavazovic from NBC four is gonna join us about stories of the year. What would you say yours is? For me. It was the homeless story in Orange County. I've covered it in other places too. But specifically in Orange County it's been almost a year long story, and it's still continuing. But it's pretty incredible. How different things are in Orange County right now from one year ago this time last year about five hundred two thousand people lived along these Sette at riverbed and Orange County. Supervisor Todd Spitzer was one of the leaders in Orange County who said the cabinet had just gotten out of control. And then the supervisors decided to clear it all out net. Riverbed in particular is not a place for people who live to encamp have a Tate. It is a river bed. And he didn't have too many nice things about to say about some of the people who are down. There. The bulk of the individuals living there scuffles people with criminal backgrounds, and they have absolutely no interest in bettering their situation. So the county decided to clear everybody out and when any government body makes a decision like that. You're not exactly sure how. How it's going to play out how long it's gonna take the whole clear we're talking about a two mile stretch, the whole Santa Ana riverbed, very close to angel stadium down. There was cleared in about a week's time and the county eventually offered seven hundred motel vouchers for people who live there to leave the riverbed. So it can be cleared and this is Shannon. We with Orange County public works. He says in the time they cleared out the riverbed they collected about five thousand pounds of hazardous waste. We had over fourteen thousand hypodermic needles found along a two mile stretch. So that was really one of the reasons that they wanted to clear it out because this used to be a recreational area that you well, it still is. But you would see people running and biking, and there was much less incentive to do that. And when you saw this kind of thing happen where you have five thousand pounds of hazardous waste a lot of that human waste, a fourteen thousand need. Those are just the ones they found. And so lawmakers really felt that that was validation for their belief that this needed to be cleared out. And that was so that's the Santa Ana river bed. Yeah. That was. Well, that was the other part of this is another. As soon as they cleared out the riverbed and again to make that work because this was all part of a federal lawsuit to make that work. They had to be able to give an alternative to people. They were forcing to leave. And that alternative was the motel vouchers which turned out to be about seven hundred of them. So then the county changed its focus to the plaza of the flags and Santa Ana and for those who don't know, that's. It's a plaza in the middle of a bunch of government building. So if you have to go to jury duty or anything like that deal with county offices. That's where you're going to end up going and hundreds of people had been camping there. In fact, at times the entire plaza was full if you owe you couldn't walk. There was just a narrow path but apart from that it was entirely full. And supervisor Andrew dough says that in cabinet had been there for decades. But then they cleared it out after so many years of people living here is going to take awhile I and rehabilitate the landscape surrounding now this whole battle which has been going on for a long time now is not completely over because there is still this lawsuit. And we've got the federal judge who's been every step of the way trying to figure out how to manage all of this. He's been down at the encampments at five in the morning talking with people, but lawyer Brooke Weizman, she was one of the parties who brought the suit she says the county still needs thousands of beds for seeking to ensure that people who have no alternative to the outside or not criminalized for unavoidable behavior that they stop being arrested simply for being in the parks and on the streets. But one of the things you noticing in covering Orange County versus LA county in the last year. Both of course have dealt with homeless issues. Of course, it's far more pronounced in LA county with about sixty thousand homeless people versus somewhere around twenty five hundred in Orange County, but Orange County essentially just said from the beginning of this year that they'd had enough. But then they were going to try to find ways to accommodate the clearing out of these areas. Be they this NFL riverbed or the Civic Center is so they have been clearing them out. But what is still calm is? They're still trying to find hundreds more beds that they can place people emergency shelters and more long term solutions. But for the moment in this year against so much of a difference from one year ago, those two probably most visible sites of large homeless encampments and Orange County are God. And and that really was one of the the big stories that I covered down there this in the thirty seconds. We have left you talked about what it was like this time last year. How do you foresee this time next year the homeless situation looking in Orange County as as it relates to temporary and permanent shelters? I think the biggest thing. That could happen or will happen over the next year is going to be the additional beds, the hundreds of beds, the shelters that are going to go up. But specifically where because in previous months there have been proposals and then community members in and around those areas have revolted so the county is still trying to balance this need for coming up with additional shelter beds versus their own constituents in some cases, not wanting them anywhere near them. Andrew mollenbeck, you're the best. Thank you. Thanks bender. All right Angel Martinez now with us again Thursday. I segment we always talk traffic.

There say worst case scenario, if the fire expands or more wind hits it there is not an active fire lie. That's kind of immediately encroaching on neighborhoods when we saw last week just how quickly the fire spread to Malibu, and it was just there was a line that would just going one home after another at the moment. There's nothing quite like that. It's more of these spot. Fires that of course in can fly somewhere and hit a home. But they're saying tens of thousands are at risk.

Charlie, KFI and Attorney discussed on Bill Handel
"Why don't you Six Coming up on Sunday morning with Elizabeth Espinosa I've got star is about LA behaving. Badly that is if you survive this heat wave Sunday morning with Elizabeth Spinoza tomorrow morning at five on KFI AM six, forty, four stimulating talk AM six forty more stimulating, talk Bill Handel This is on the law. Marginal legal advice Hey, Charlie. Welcome to handle on the law yes sir This is my question I lived in I live in the city of San Diego County, of Los Angeles in the northeast, section of the, city which is, Valerie by Arcadia purity other larger cities what has happened the sidewalks in my neighborhood are getting so degraded that. They're causing a hazard when people, try and walk away I discovered this when I retired I also developed the doctor told me to walk. More wife and I got out. Only. To find it the sidewalks. Are just so bad okay content I contacted the city the city has. Told me that because these are not really, a sidewalk they are an asphalt sidewalk if. You, would, they are not responsible for keeping. Them, up Sidewalks or between. Two schools oh wait a minute hold on it they're not. A sidewalk there asphalt but do they. Look like a sidewalk absolutely the act like a sidewalk first of all I've never heard I've never heard, of asphalt sidewalks I've never seen, one of those, it's always concrete, so you're telling me if you have a normal sidewalk that you see you've. Got the front yard then the. Sidewalk and then a piece of, grass and then the street right yeah okay kind of like a main thoroughfare okay but it's still the. Main thoroughfare but it's still that. Way. It's it's basically acts like. A sidewalk the ground you know the the front yard sidewalk the the. Green and then the street so the only, difference is it's asphalt and it's not concrete Interesting and. That is does, that belong to. The city who owns that, I. Would guess it would be the. City unless they. Say it's all private property that it's is my thoughts I believe it, belongs to the city okay, and I got I contacted them and and one of the other questions, I? Had. For. This because they have no accessible. Wheelchair. Ramps on on the corners yet, they come back to deny. That I have an Email that they, are not, responsible because, they are not sanctioned, sidewalk, is basically what they're giving me oh. Interesting I don't even know what a sanction sidewalk is by Yeah That it's the fact that he's a poured concrete rather than. This I don't, know if concrete if a sidewalk is defined as having b. Comprised of concrete, and no other material I think you have, to look at I the. I don't even know why. The ordinance ordinance say sidewalks are comprised of that's a really interesting point I, so I don't even know if there's been a lawsuit filed research it but I'd be surprised if. There was a lawsuit filed saying that, this is a sidewalk and asphalt sidewalk is the same as concrete sidewalks but for the fact that it's concrete and it'd be very well be an, ordinance or even a statute that deals with it and define. Sidewalks concrete then I don't even know where the. Hell, you vote this I've never heard of this before by the way Charlie this is a. Weird one, now and that surprises city's trying to. Get out of it of, course they tried to get out of everything Sure More. Thing let me add to this is the fact that I did look up on the Americans with Disabilities, Act and there's a section to that is clearly states in there that the the city's obligation is to maintain a sidewalk that is. There I guess there have looked it. Up they have lifted up also and their their entire. Premise is that because it's ask, fault it's it's not a. Sidewalk And maybe not so much the asphalt it's just the fact, that thirty nine it's a sidewalk well okay and I don't know how the hell they deny it's a sidewalk I really don't not. Only that like I said we're borderline. Stand Gabriel and triple city both we'll start denying borderline it's either on it's either in, one city or the other Creek, crosses over it's it's about a mile stretch okay, so goes across the line right correct. Okay well I would think every city is responsible for everything on their side. Of, the. Line so so what do you want to do what's your question what do you want to do as a result of this well I I'm retired now I have nothing but time on my hands who I, approach next I'll take as far as I can I would go to, the city council and they have open hearings open meetings odd definitely I. Would talk to the city attorney and let. The city attorney know that it looks like the cities in violation of the ADA American with Disabilities. Act and you see if there are any organizations out. There, and, I'm sure there are that deal with ADA issues. And the government. And there are even their even. Firms law firms, that deal with it now there's two. Different. Kinds of law firms. They're the kind of law firms that are bunch of predators Sleazeball, law firms that go against small businesses where the, ramp is the wrong the elevation is. The wrong degree is supposed to be at twelve degrees and it turns out. It's, a. Thirteen degrees in their forcing relation and they actually extort the business owners there's those and then there are firms that are on the other side who actually deal seriously with with ADA violations and this looks like, it's one of those so I just do some research and put in, some ADA law firms as search words and see where you go on. That and talk to the city attorney's office. And talk to the council that's where I would okay okay Would it be advisable to take pictures and God yes oh yeah oh yeah I take. All the pictures you. Can. Okay All right all right? Charlie take care interesting interesting? Proposition isn't it and their denial that it's a? Sidewalk. How do. You, point. To a sidewalk say that's not a. Sidewalk This is handle on the law Julie? Slater in the KFI newsroom The fire near Idyllwild has more than twelve thousand acres.
