It's the southernmost point in the city of Los Angeles, home to Los Angeles Harbor--called the largest man-made port in the Western Hemisphere--and one of the last remaining lighthouses in Southern California. San Pedro is technically part of the city of Los Angeles, but its sandy beaches and stunning views make it feel worlds away. Friday See a show at the historic Warner Grand Theatre (478 W. 6th St., [310] 548-7672), one of the last remaining movie houses built by Warner Bros.

A man died Saturday morning after he and two others were swept into the ocean by a rogue wave in San Pedro, authorities said. Dispatchers received a call about 6:35 a.m. that three people had been knocked into the ocean while standing on the Cabrillo Beach breakwater, Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Brian Humphrey said. One of the three, a 49-year-old man, made his way out of the water with little assistance. Rescue boats were sent out to find two others, Humphrey said.

The exterior of Beacon House is the color of the sea, a combination of grays and whites that characterize the ocean in its many moods. Seen in bright sunlight, there are almost fluctuating qualities to the chromatic tones of the old Victorian, much as the hues of the Pacific seem to shift and change through stages of its temperament.

He had a camera in his trunk but he used his phone instead so he wouldn't miss this moment, he said.

Organizing a country-western hoedown was a first for the nuns. So were the carne asada sale and the trips to the casino. But then again it isn't everyday that the founder of your religious order will be canonized by the Pope. For 30 years, members of the Little Sisters of the Poor, a worldwide Roman Catholic order, have operated a home for the elderly in San Pedro, a facility devoted to the care of about 100 impoverished elderly residents. They call themselves "the begging order" and rely on God's providence to provide the financial means to meet the needs of some 202 homes they run in 32 countries.

A 36-year-old man who died Saturday after being pulled from the water in San Pedro was trying to help others who were swept into the water, officials with the Port of Los Angeles Police Department said. Initial reports indicated as many as three people had been knocked off the Cabrillo Beach breakwater by a wave, but Port Police Lt. Michael Capodanno said the man who died was one of several who attempted to help after a man and a boy were swept away from the breakwater. He "jumped into the water to render aid and has subsequently died as a result of his efforts," Capodanno said.

He was arrested after the Akita's homeowner saw Caceres on video allegedly assaulting the family dog after installing security cameras focused on the yard, the Daily Breeze  reported . The homeowner feared a prowler had been trying to break into his house in recent months after he found a cellphone in the yard and heard unexplained wails from his dog in the middle of the night, only to find nothing when he investigated.

As a little girl, Anne Gusha walked into and was charmed by Williams' Book Store in San Pedro. She was 8 years old and the year was 1928. It would be more than five decades before the store became hers -- decades she spent working behind the counter. Now Anne and her son Jerry, who is the store's co-owner, are being forced to close the bookstore. Opened in 1909, Williams' Book Store is considered by some to be the oldest continuously operating bookstore in Los Angeles (Vroman's, which opened in 1894, is in Pasadena)
