Los Alamitos Mayor Quits Over Watermelongate

More like, "No Mayor Grose this  year."  At first Grose let it be known over the weekend that he'd only step down as mayor, but the ensuing outcry forced him to also surrender his council seat -- "For the love of my community," Grose wrote in his resignation letter, "and the health and well-being of my family" etc. Last week Grose arrived at his business, Event Medical Services, to find a smashed watermelon on its steps.
