Indy’s Headline Show Bias

Editor, The Indy’s created headline “Fictional Tale Antagonizes Reader” for the letter published in the Jan. 9th edition of the Indy, is inaccurate, misleading, and clearly an editorial slant to infer silliness and hostility of a reader reacting to a fairy tale. Editor, in all...

Intolerance to Free Speech Lives

Editor, I applaud you for having the gumption to place my fictional piece on the front page. You may not have foreseen the consequences, but I appreciate that you deemed my perspective worthy enough to be published in a conservative community, at times resistant to reflecting. It...

Push on for Nuclear Fuel Disposal

Editor, Laguna Beach has started the important bipartisan process of facing the U.S. stalemate on where to put nuclear spent fuel that must be guarded for thousands of years due to its deadly radiation. The Laguna Beach resolution passed Dec. 16 and calls for the passage of the...

Hedge Height Policy Is Cumbersome, Expensive

Editor, The new Laguna hedge height claim policy is intended to resolve issues of overgrown hedges that are within front, back, and side “setbacks” in order to protect safety, view or sunlight access. There is no maximum height for hedges under the ordinances. The claimant must...

Correction:

An editing error in a Jan. 2 article incorrectly described writer Anita Razin. She is not a grandmother.   The “Film Documents Laguna Beach from Local’s Lens” in the Dec. 11 edition incorrectly describes how long Douglas Miller has been a Sawdust Festival exhibitor. He has...

‘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...
