The real estate market has long worked on a simple system: If you want to buy a new house, sell the old one and use the equity for a down payment. But the last few years of low ownership costs and rising rents have some move-up buyers trying a new approach: Buy the new house. Keep the old one. And rent it out. Real estate firm Redfin recently asked 1,900 prospective home buyers nationwide what they planned to do with their old house when they bought a new one. As you'd expect, the majority said they would sell.

A small green park on the Strand in Manhattan Beach is dedicated to international brotherhood these days, but it began as a beach resort for black Angelenos that was destroyed by racism in the 1920s. In its heyday during the 1910s and '20s, the resort was called Bruces' Beach. It offered ocean breezes, bathhouses, outdoor sports, dining and dancing to hundreds of African Americans who craved a taste of Southern California's good life. Now the oasis is called Parque Culiacan.

As the Los Angeles Kings push closer to a Stanley Cup championship, sports bars across Southern California are suddenly enamored with the team and getting a crash course in the culture and rules of the game. But not at the North End Bar and Grill in Hermosa Beach. Here, the Kings are the hometown team. Many of the players drink there, call patrons their neighbors and mingle freely at community events. Last week, as the Kings were on the road to their first Cup victory, North End patron Jennifer Henriksen proudly pulled out her iPhone and showed off images of players celebrating at the bar a few weeks earlier.

Jeanne Jackson's Aug. 7 Voices column dealing with what some call the "yuppification" of Manhattan Beach is right on the mark, and many here share her dismay. It was a pretty accurate report, although she neglected mention of the danger to us old folks as we dodge careening baby strollers, propelled by a growing population of nannies.

This post has been corrected. See the note at the bottom for details. California Atty. Gen. Kamala D. Harris on Thursday endorsed former Los Angeles  Controller Wendy Greuel for the U.S. House seat being vacated by longtime  Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Beverly Hills). "I've known Wendy for a very long time," Harris said in a telephone interview. "I know her to be someone who will represent California in a very important way. " Harris is the latest officeholder to back Greuel, like Harris a Democrat, since she got into the race less than a week ago. Others include former L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, several past and present members of the L.A. City Council, where Greuel served before being elected controller, and U.S. Reps.

The sudden retirement of Rep. Henry A. Waxman set off a land rush Thursday of politicians and other prospects eyeing an exceedingly rare shot at an open congressional seat in one of the most affluent, strongly Democratic redoubts in the country. By the end of the day, amid all the pent-up ambition, there was one declared candidate - former Los Angeles Controller Wendy Greuel - and more than half a dozen others considering a bid to replace Waxman in what could be an expensive, crowded and highly competitive free-for-all.

Former Los Angeles city controller and unsuccessful mayoral candidate Wendy Greuel said Thursday that she plans to run for the Congressional seat being vacated by retiring Rep. Henry Waxman. “When I woke up this morning, I had no idea that someone as powerful as Henry Waxman would be retiring. I knew instantly in my gut that this district, the 33 rd district, and his position was something I knew I could make a difference in,” Greuel said in an interview. “He's a fighter and that's who I've been and I want to do that in Congress.” Greuel said she received many phone calls and texts after Waxman's announcement urging her to run for the seat.  She lives just outside the district, but plans to move into it soon, she said.
