The historic Cabrillo Beach Bathhouse has been saved and the Polar Bears couldn't be happier. The Los Angeles Harbor Department announced last week that it will spend $2.2 million to repair the dilapidated San Pedro facility, which was built in 1932 and was once a thriving meeting place. Since it was closed more than a decade ago, the only people who use the bathhouse grounds regularly are the Polar Bears, an organization whose members swim in the ocean every day regardless of the weather.

History buffs can get a walking tour today of the Warner Grand Theater in San Pedro, which has been spiffed up since the city bought the 1930s movie house in 1995 for $1.2 million. The Los Angeles Historic Theater Foundation is offering a free peek at the movie house, 478 W. 6th St., from 10 a.m. to noon. Art Deco chandeliers hang from the rafters and the original tapestries cover two walls. On the ceiling is an elaborate copper, gold and silver sunburst design.

More than a year after his first eviction notice, Julian Jimenez still hasn't moved out of his house. His neighbors hope that he never will. Jimenez isn't a deadbeat behind on his rent--in fact, he doesn't pay any rent at all. And the house he's not moving out of isn't just a house. It's a lighthouse, the Point Fermin Lighthouse in San Pedro, where Jimenez, a maintenance supervisor for the city of Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks, has lived for the past 11 years.

Four years after its original design and location drew criticism, a new proposal for a Korean War veterans memorial in San Pedro has been approved by the Los Angeles Recreation and Parks Commission, according to an organizer of the memorial. The decision Monday sends the project to the state Coastal Commission before returning for final city action in the coming months, said Scott Smith of the International Korean Veterans Memorial Committee.
