Happy 108th Birthday to local resident, Ethel Satre

“There wasn’t a tree tall enough or a horse fast enough,” says 108-year-old Ethel Satre when asked her secret for living such a long life. “Not being afraid of hard work and living happily.”

Back in 1908 Theodore Roosevelt was the President of the United States, gas cost 2 cents a gallon and coffee was 15 cents a pound. The Model T Ford and vacuum cleaner were invented, it was the first time a ball was dropped at Times Square signifying the New Year and the first Mother’s Day was observed.

Nineteen hundred eight was a year of astonishing inventions and breakthroughs that propelled America into the modern age. It was also the year that Ethel Avery, who is believed to be second oldest living Minnesotan, was born. The Centenarian shares her birth year with such famous people as Rex Harrison, Louis L ‘Amour, Bette Davis, Percy Faith, James Stewart, Estee Lauder, Nelson Rockefeller, Milton Berle, Lyndon B. Johnson, and “Baby Face” Nelson.

Manhattan Beach PZ votes in favor of IUPs

The matter still needs to go to the city council for approval. The city’s professional staff recommended adding IUPs to the city’s permit offerings. Recently the city was sued and its ordinance regarding home occupation permits was deemed void and struck from the city code. Home occupation permits had allowed home businesses that did not completely meet city standards to operate within the city.

Already the city issues conditional use permits (CUPs), but those differ from IUPs in that CUPs have no end date and travel with the land. IUPs have a determined end date and give the city more control to set conditions on the permit.
