The National Park Service on Tuesday recommended adding 170,000 acres of wild lands, parks and historical sites to the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area as part of the Rim of the Valley study initiated more than eight years ago.

Thanks to everyone who came to Schiff Comedy Night at the Hollywood Improv last Thursday!
What a great crowd, great comics, great fun!
I am grateful for the support and the laughs (thank goodness our great comedy line-up did the heavy lifting)
