The Malibu Canyon Tunnel is closed for construction
I like calling the tunnel the Pink Lady. I want to keep her story alive and honor the artist, 31-year-old Lynne Seemayer along with her art. In the late 60’s when Seemayer decided to and actually did clean off the graffiti from a mountainside in Malibu. She would slip out of bed, leave her family and head to the canyon with her paint, her supplies and the moon in the sky. All by herself up the mountain she’d climb, then with her rope she’d rappel off the side.

There are countless numbers of children that survive but are left sufferring from physical and emotional trauma, more often than not, with life-altering injuries for them, their families and even affecting their communities.

A recent AP report focused on how the app is changing traffic in Los Angeles and talked to residents who are objecting to more cars in their neighborhood. From AP: 
When word spread that the explosively popular new smartphone …
