With a bit of non-alcoholic bubbly, Carson officials toasted the end of years of effort to get a $35-million hotel and office complex near the Community Center. "To the new hotel," declared Mayor Kay Calas with her glass held high during the celebration in council offices Monday.

He was raised in Sherman Oaks, played baseball and football at Van Nuys High, and graduated from Cal State Northridge with a degree in political science. Peter Broudy has roots there, but that's not why he has brought his business to the San Fernando Valley.
