Long Beach City Prosecutor Doug Haubert will be the guest on the next edition of Straight Talk. He joins host Art Levine to discuss the work of his office, including the effective use of gang injunctions and the aggressive truancy enforcement program. Haubert will also comment on the recent passage of Prop 47 and the impact it may have on the criminal justice system.

The show will air in Long Beach and 40 surrounding cities on Saturday, December 20 and Sunday, December 21 at 9am and 7pm on LBTV 3 and FiOS 21 and at 10am and 8pm on Charter Channel 188. It will be repeated the following weekend at the same times.

Straight Talk is Viewable on Demand at this website and on YouTube and can be heard on iTunes.



The 32nd Annual Belmont Shore Christmas Parade took place on Saturday, December 6 and was another big success. With the theme Home for the Holidays, the parade honored our veterans and current servicemen and women. Nine veterans from WWII served as Grand Marshals.

Our gratitude to all the men and women who have helped defend our country!

Charter Communications videotaped the parade as a community service, and will air it every Saturday and Sunday at 4pm on Channel 188 thru the end of December.



Run do not walk to the stunning performance of The Nutcracker at the Terrace Theater presented by the Long Beach Ballet. The Ballet annually brings a splendid performance of The Nutcracker to our community, but this year they absolutely hit it out of the ballpark with the classic music, sets and dancing.

Visiting guest artists and principal leads Huang Yi and Son Xin from China absolutely wow the crowd. The smashing production of this classic show is one you will long remember. Many in the audience seemed to float out of the theater, following three curtain calls and a standing ovation.

Performances continue on Saturday, December 20 at 2pm and 7:30pm and Sunday, December 21 at 2pm. For tickets or more information, visit www.longneachballet.com.

With best wishes to you and your family for the New Year from all of us at Straight Talk.
