HMB History Presents Jim Clifford ~ 50 years of Local News with UPI and AP Wire Services

VIDEO / PODCAST. Jim Clifford (UPI/AP) reports history for the San Mateo Journal’s Rear View Column. Great stories, told well.

  • Who is Martin? Is it Martin’s Beach or Martins Beach? Jim will tell you. (Go to 38 minute mark).
  • Know about Loren Coburn and Pebble Beach in the late 1800’s? Wonder if Martin’s Beach Vinod Kosla knew about Coburn’s playbook?
  • Did you know 300,000 people passed through the Moss Beach US Air Force Artillery training installation during WWII?

Bedtime Stories ~ Pete the Cat Saves Christmas!

VIDEO / PODCAST. In 2004, Kimberly & James Dean sat down at their kitchen table to work on a children’s book together. Their dream has finally become a reality with the release of this new Pete the Cat book, Pete the Cat and His Magic Sunglasses. Both left corporate jobs in the late nineties (James was an electrical engineer, Kimberly worked in the press office of the governor of Georgia) to pursue their passion for art.
Illustrated by James Dean who spent the majority of his early years watching his father, a self-taught artist, reproduce the art of the masters as a hobby. James, only in first grade, began drawing from cartoons such as Disney and Snoopy. His grandmother was the first to hang a James Dean original on the wall, a well-done drawing of Yogi Bear. Born 1957 in Fort Payne, Alabama.
