RANDY WRIGHT PHOTOGRAPHS A WHITE SHARK AT SUNSET
On October 3, 2009 Randy Wright of Horizons West Surf N' Wear (2011 Main St, Santa Monica) was kayaking a few hundred yards off Sunset Beach. Using a Canon 40d camera with a 24-105 mm lens inside an SPL Waterhousing, Randy captured a stunning series of high-resolution images of a shark breaching. He immediately submitted the images to Ralph Collier of the Shark Research Committee. Based on dorsal coloration, the gray and white pattern on the pelvic fin, shape and color of the caudal fin, location and shapes of the dorsal and pectoral fins, snout and eye, Ralph confirmed that Randy had captured images of a White Shark, with an estimated length of 8 - 10 feet. A sample of the images and the full account of the incident are available on the Shark Research Committee website.

SEWAGE SPILL SOUTH OF THE WILL ROGERS LIFEGUARD HEADQUARTERS
An estimated 9,600 gallons of sewage flowed into the ocean just south of the Will Rogers Lifeguard Headquarters. Sanitation workers discovered that an eight-inch sewer pipe that originally connected a house (now demolished) at 15054 Corona Del Mar to the main sewer system had become uncapped. It was sticking out of the hillside and was spewing sewage down into a flood drain along PCH.
