Ellis to play from new album at Nisswa concert May 6
Grassroots Concerts welcomes a return performance by the gifted Ellis at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, May 6 in Nisswa at the Live Well Nightclub and Coffee Bar.
The season-ending concert will showcase her latest acclaimed recording, 2016’s “The Guest House,” her first studio album since the birth of her daughter in 2010.
Her previous appearance on the Grassroots Concerts stage came in October of 2010.
Ellis named her ninth full-length recording “The Guest House,” inspired by the Rumi poem of the same name. Like the poem, her album covers the joys and pain of life and loss, inviting them all in as welcome guests.
Manhattan Beach to hold public hearing on interim use permits
Manhattan Beach’s Planning and Zoning Commission held its first meeting in a year on Monday, April 18, and decided to hold a public hearing so residents can weigh in on whether the city should be able to issue interim use permits.
The meeting came after the city lost a lawsuit that resulted in part of its land use ordinance being deemed null and void by the court. The lawsuit, which was resolved March 3, was filed by residents Larry and Marilyn Wannebo against the City of Manhattan Beach, Steve and Laurie Peterson, and Northern Lakes Landscaping, the Petersons’ business. The Petersons were granted a home occupation permit (HOP) by the city for Northern Lakes Landscaping.
Larry and Marilyn Wannebo argued that the city exceeded its authority in granting the HOP to Northern Lakes Landscaping. The court ruled in Larry and Marilyn Wannebo’s favor, and the portion of the city’s code which allows for the issuance of home occupation permits was ruled null and void, and so was the Petersons’ home occupation permit.
