two walked out of sight. Orkun called police
and provided a description of the couple, their

Diné and Chicana Artist Nanibah Chacon
unveiled her new mural Portals to Memory
on May 29 at the El Segundo Public Library.
Portals to Memory, incorporating various
landscapes present in Tongva territories and
strategically placed “cog stones,” is a piece
that celebrates the beauty of wonder and
our innate need to create objects that are
reflective of what we see in nature. Listening
sessions with community members and
the artist contributed to the collaboratively
developed and site-specific mural content.
Diné/Chicana artist Nanibah Chacon is
known for her murals and large scale public
works created nationally and internationally
as well as her personal philosophy that art
should be an accessible and meaningful
catalyst for social change.
El Segundo Public Library Director Melissa
McCollum remarked, “We are grateful to
Nanibah and community partners for bringing
this beautiful art to El El Segundo in
order to highlight contemporary Indigenous
experiences and inspire all.”

Local Lawmaker’s E-Scooter Bill
Offers Path Forward for Cruisers
By Rob McCarthy
Legislation to regulate electric scooter rentals
offers them a chance to operate again in
South Bay cities, some which have banned
the motorized boards over liability and safety
concerns. Supporters think that Assemblyman
Al Muratsuchi has struck the proper balance
between protecting cities from lawsuits and
being opened-minded about a new technology.
Scooters and bikes for rent are popular
with office employees and tourists for short
trips. The bill requires rideshare companies,
including Bird, Lime and L.A-based Wheels,
to work with cities before launching operations.
The Consumer Attorneys of California
supports the attempt to regulate e-scooters
and bikes and the “Wild West” nature of
The attorneys don’t consider the state protections
a huge burden, calling them minimal. One
of those protections is to set a limit on how
much insurance the scooter companies must
carry before they approach local governments
