Editor’s Letter – Oct. 2017 – My Rindge Would Never Put Up With This Sh*t!

the Queen of Malibu, May Rindge

After Frederick Rindge’s premature death in 1905, the fierce and unfriendly May Rindge who had grown up on a hardscrabble midwestern farm, fought to preserve Malibu’s pristine beauty and private status. Rindge used her armed ranch hands to block access to federal homesteaders, aimless squatters, poachers, outlaws, hunters, illegal campers, trespassers and real estate developers. Fast forward to 2017, there is still a strong community spirit inspired by May Rindge.

We are Malibu locals who want to preserve what is left of our rural pristine beauty. We object to squatters, poachers, lawbreakers, illegal hunters, illegal campers, private property trespassers and greedy real estate developers who exploit Malibu and do not give back to the community. May Ringe, the “Queen” of Malibu would never have tolerated this behavior. Why should we?

The Current Report Editor in Chief Cece Woods started The Local Malibu, an activism based platform in 2014. The publication was instrumental in the success of pro-preservation ballot measures and seating five top vote-getters in the Malibu City Council elections.

During the summer of 2018, Woods exposed the two-year law enforcement cover-up in the Malibu Creek State Park Shootings, and a few short months later provided the most comprehensive local news coverage during the Woolsey Fire attracting over 1 million hits across her social media platforms. Woods also founded Malibu based 90265 Magazine and Cali Mag devoted to the authentic southern California lifestyle.
