Avalon City Manager David Jinkens and the city’s grant manager recently attended a California Department of Water Resources workshop on funding for desalination projects. “The full development of desal in Avalon along with use of solar power to run desal operations will make the  application for funding competitive,” Jinkens said in an email to the Islander.

The two large dogs that attacked a man and his smaller dog will never be allowed to return to Avalon. Last week a judge declared the two “pit bulls” to be vicious, according to City Attorney Scott Campbell.

Campbell said the judge continued the hearing on their fate until May 19, when the judge will determine whether the animals will be euthanized.

He said one of the things the judge was looking at is whether there is a facility for vicious dogs that would allow them to live out their lives.

This month, the iconic village of Two Harbors on Catalina’s west end will see a transformation with its revitalized oceanfront at Harbor Sands. Part of the Catalina Island Company’s ongoing investment in the island, Harbor Sands brings back the relaxed South Pacific ambiance reminiscent of Two Harbors in the 1930s, when thatched huts lined the shores of Isthmus Cove.
