The Avalon Boys Basketball team has been working all season long on improving as a team and their work has finally paid off. They have won seven out of 10 league games and are returning to the CIF Playoffs.  They defeated St. Michaels twice, TVT twice and Samueli Academy twice. They split with Southlands Christian and lost both games to undefeated league champs Fairmont Prep. They enter the playoffs as a second seed with a 7 and 3 league record.  

Going into the last two games against Vivian Webb High School the Avalon Lady Lancers knew what was at stake.  Either win these last two games of the season or stay home for the playoffs.

There are many fine people who work at SCE and provide electric, gas and water services to Avalon. No one doubts this fact. We understand that operations in Avalon and Catalina Island are directed from Southern California Edison corporate offices on the mainland.

There are a number of outstanding issues that need to be positively addressed in order to ensure that Avalon has a year-round and sustainable fresh water supply. Only SCE corporate officials can provide these answers, and City officials are persevering to get answers for the City Council and community.
