At the new version of the Jamaica Bay Inn, Marina del Rey gets what it has needed for a long while: an on-the-water, upscale hotel that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Call it barefoot luxury. The Jamaica Bay Inn sits at the intersection of Palawan Way and Admiralty Way, along the marina’s tranquil Mother’s Beach, known for its gentle waves. The Pacific Ocean and the Venice fishing pier are a short walk away. More than 16 months ago, the hotel closed for an extensive renovation that expanded it to 111 rooms and added marina-view suites and a 150-seat indoor/outdoor restaurant called Vu that serves breakfast, lunch and eclectic dinners.

Two men were rescued from the waters off the Marina Del Rey coast Wednesday night after their boat capsized. The boat was outside the marina breakwater and somehow got tangled in a lobster net line after 7 p.m. and was taking on water, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. "When the deputies arrived, they saw the vessel ... capsize and saw two men jump into the water," the Sheriff's Department said. The men were pulled aboard the deputies' patrol boat and taken to safety.

When Joe Borst bought a run-down 1952 house in Marina del Rey, he and girlfriend Maria Torres hoped to transform the 1,200-square-foot cookie-cutter plan into something that felt larger, more open and modern - a tall order given the limited budget. The couple could afford to renovate the house but not to expand it, so the mission became to rethink the floor plan - to leave the perimeter of the house intact, adjust how the existing space was used and make the most of the house's backyard.

A big thank you to Jeffrey L. Rabin and your newspaper for the articles. These revelations may be the only way to lead to a correction of mismanagement that our country representatives have allowed. The Marina entrances have been constricted, the main channel has silted up and the seawalls have been crumbling. Have our public servants actually been serving private and personal interests?
