‘Flicks at the Forum’ a Fabulous Treat

Editor: My husband Ken and I attended the first “Free Flicks at the Forum” screening on Friday night. It was a lovely gift to our community from Steve Chadima and Mark Porterfield and the city. I had been wanting to see “Finding Vivian Maier,” having...

Mozambique’s Vans Can Help Solve the Problem

Editor, I read the perspective from one resident in Laguna Beach about the restaurant Mozambique’s challenges and parking issues in the nearby neighborhood (Woods Cove). His suggestion was for neighbors to just “Deal With It”. Really? This is a real issue for neighbors, not a...

Kudos to a Caring Public Employee

Editor, I want to publicly thank Bob Koch in the city’s public works department for his above and beyond work. He is a gem and I sure hope that the city realizes how well respected he is. Bob is the personification of a true public servant. When street repairs were done in...

A Scolding for Dog Owners That Disobey Rules

We took our grandchildren to Moulton Park the late afternoon of Dec. 31. Our grandchildren were terrorized by two large, unleashed dogs that charged them. We were assured by the owner that the dogs were friendly. These were two of the many unleashed dogs that day. I am...

A Challenge to the Accepted Stance on The Ranch

Editor, Allow me to contribute an opinion regarding the pro-Ranch field trip to Santa Monica, signs, T-shirts, letters, et al: Make the distinction, folks, that you are being asked to support a money-making enterprise, not a charitable effort. Mark Christy has convinced many that...

Fictional Tale Antagonizes Reader

Editor, On the front page of the Jan. 2 LB Indy, a writing submission from Anita Razin was published that purports to be a short story, “New Year’s 2001: A Short Story”. A short story is by definition fiction. To anyone reading the piece, it is quite obvious the writing is not a...

Dressler Clarifies Initiation of Funds Raised for Theatre

Editor, Thanks for the article in this week’s Indy (“Dressler to Take His Last Bow,” Jan. 26 edition). Just to clarify, in case someone has any issues:  When we introduced the idea of initiating a Renaissance of the Performing Arts program, a group of Laguna citizens had...

We Deal With It

Editor, I attended the City Council meeting Tuesday, Dec. 16, and was amazed watching the emotions that were present during the debate regarding Mozambique and its request to use all three of its floors to serve drinks and dinners to consumers. Apparently, there have been years...

Misheard Figure Corrected

Editor, I just wanted to correct a quote that was attributed to me about the depth of Finland’s bunker that is being dug to store nuclear waste.  I mentioned that the depth was a third of a mile deep, not 30 miles deep as stated in the article.  (Now, that would be some...

Don’t Fool with Mother Nature

Editor, I just spent three days in Palm Desert.  It was a great pre-holiday get away.  The weather cooperated, so I wore shorts on the golf course.  Good friends from the beach were there, so we had lots of laughs.  And last, but not least, I only checked my email once. That...

A Bummer No Matter the Season

Editor, It was the night before Christmas and all through the village a few shoppers were stirring in hopes of ‘shopping local’ to support the community. I write this letter as a 35-year resident of Laguna Beach. I abide by the laws of parking in our village, have a clean driving...

Laguna Leads the Way Against San Onofre Fuel Storage

Editor, Congratulations are in order for our City Council for their commitment and leadership to pass this important Resolution. On December 16th, The City of Laguna Beach became the second City in Orange County to pass a Resolution and the first one dealing with the gravity of...

Kindness Proves a Balm to All

Editor, I volunteer at the Laguna Food Pantry and the last time I was there, this letter came to the volunteer staff. It speaks to what happens in this little building on the canyon. “Dear Pantry, This has been a humbling experience for me and my family. Financial...

Realtors Step Up for Animals

Editor, During this season of gratitude, we want to thank the Laguna Beach Board of Realtors Charitable Fund for their very generous efforts to support the animal charities of Laguna Beach via their annual Chili Cook Off and Pet Parade held each September. The Blue Bell...

Cameras Don’t Catch Everything

Editor, “For at least 15 years, Laguna’s 10 patrol vehicles and two motorcycles have also been equipped with video systems. The windshield-mounted video camera is activated when an officer turns on the overhead lights or manually turns the camera on,” Workman said. (“Police...
