Good morning, Long Beach! Here’s everything you need to know to get this Monday started off right.

So far, the elegant tern rescue has saved about 2,000 young birds in the harbor. Also, City officials want parents to remember that youths as young as 12 can receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Finally, you know things are going south when the campaign contribution checks bounce.

First, today’s weather: Clear throughout the day. High: 83 Low: 63.

Here are the top stories today in Long Beach:

  1. Update: The elegant tern chick rescue along the LB Harbor has continued. So far, more than 2,000 were plucked from the water. If you’ve been following this story, you will remember that boaters or fireworks may have scared the chicks off their roosting platforms in early July. (LB Post)
  2. City officials urge parents that “COVID-19 vaccinations should top back-to-school lists.” With schools starting again this month, they remind parents and caregivers that minors as young as 12 years of age qualify for the free vaccine. At this time, 44.7% of this demographic is vaccinated. (City of LB)
  3. Ruben Garcia of Advanced Cleanup Technologies once said he developed a ship’s smokestack cover that would prevent 80% of its emissions from leaking into the air. Critics now call his invention an “illusion” while creditors claim Garcia’s “companies were a kind of Ponzi scheme.” (LB Post, CARB)
  4. Ninth District Council Member and Vice Mayor Rex Richardson has raised $168,000 for his third-term reelection campaign to continue a Roadmap to (North LB’s) Renaissance. (LBReport, Strong Towns)
