Supporter of Canyon Live Work Complex

Supporter of Canyon Live Work Complex

Editor, I am in favor of the Long(i) Live-Work-Create project and would encourage the city council to support this wonderful art studio complex in Laguna. My mother was an artist in the ‘60s in Laguna and studied with some of Laguna’s finest artists of that era. Laguna Beach has always been such a wonderful center […]

Consider Precedent Projects Sets

Consider Precedent Projects Sets

Editor: Several thoughts regarding the proposed Longi development in Laguna Canyon. I believe citizens who support this are well meaning, but they may not have completely thought it through. Do everything we can to help our artists, but keep in mind how we do it.  The phrase “throwing out the baby with the bathwater” comes […]

So Many Walls To Go

So Many Walls To Go

Editor, After a four-year absence (Tustin Ranch…only miles away but far from Laguna…) we have returned to our home in Laguna. Each morning I drive Coast Highway and admire the art of Sandra Jones Campbell, “The Pastels,” on the wall next to Toes on the Nose and it always makes me smile…. And then I […]

Protecting Laguna Canyon

Protecting Laguna Canyon

Editor, Last week the Laguna Canyon Home Owners Association wrote a letter requesting answers to many questions.  Many questions have already been answered with countless studies, city reports and peer reviews.  Most were answered had any of the four officers of the organization attended three neighborhood meetings that started over three years ago.  Not one […]

Correction:

A story in the Feb. 28 edition about the candidacy of Michele Hall incorrectly described her son as a local high school student. He attends St. Margaret’s in San Juan Capistrano.

Dog Doo on Sunset Avenue Ruins the Vibe

Dog Doo on Sunset Avenue Ruins the Vibe

Editor, It was such a nice refreshing rain here in South Laguna. The air is so fresh, clean and the plants loved it. Then I went outside to get my morning newspaper and right there on the street is a huge pile of dog poop and I mean huge. This dog must have been backed […]

Letters Reflect Town Opinion

Letters Reflect Town Opinion

Editor, Stunewslaguna.com, our online “newspaper” is supposedly the most read Laguna Beach news source in Laguna and the world, but in a recent e mail, publisher Stu Saffer indicated he is not getting many letters to the editor and therefore has been printing only a few recently. Debbie Zucco, copy chief for the Coastline News […]

Project Helps Preserve Character Slipping Away

Project Helps Preserve Character Slipping Away

Editor, Growing up in Laguna Beach, and having the perspective of living elsewhere for periods of time, I have been able to see the changes to our wonderful home in ways someone who has never left may not notice. It is with this perspective I whole-heartedly endorse building the artist live work space that is […]

Canyon Project, a Gateway to More Development

Canyon Project, a Gateway to More Development

Editor, The promoter of the massive development project in the Canyon says, “I’m not a developer.” They’re proposing the biggest development ever in our neighborhood, the maximum “allowable”. The Indy article (“Local Investor Doubles Down,” Feb. 28) could have been a brochure for their development proposal. Twenty-five years ago would you have put Don Bren […]

Victms of View Abuse

Victms of View Abuse

Editor, I am upset with the toothless new view ordinance, which is being hobnailed together by our City Council. It appears that, once again, they are not moved by doing what is right for the victims of view robbers but rather, they are deferring to the majority. The role of government is to protect the […]

Sound Spectrum Keeps a Scholarship Spinning

Sound Spectrum Keeps a Scholarship Spinning

Editor, As the senior class of 2014 eagerly awaits their June graduation date, many are completing scholarship applications for their college career. Did you know that the LBHS Scholarship Foundation awards over 250 scholarships amounting to over $300,000 annually? This wonderful community program features scholarships from local merchants, nonprofit organizations and many that are in […]

 An Apology of Sorts for Parade’s Cancellation

An Apology of Sorts for Parade’s Cancellation

Editor, When John Dumas, of NOAA’s National Weather Service Science and Operations Office, announced that California needs a March miracle to help end the drought, the Laguna Beach Beautification Council took him seriously.  Beautification Council members, in conjunction with the Laguna Beach Water District, decided to literally “march” for a March rain miracle at the […]

There’s Always Next Year

To the Community: On behalf of the Laguna Beach Patriots Day Parade Association, I want to thank you for your support of our parade this year and for your understanding of our decision to cancel.

Housing for Homeless in the Works

Housing for Homeless in the Works

Editor, Beautifully written (“Soloist’s Closing Coda,” Feb. 21 edition). Thank you for this. The fact that Cliff was hounded by the authorities – ticketed 17 times for sleeping in public and whatever else, having his belongings confiscated – is an injustice. Sadly, it is too late for Cliff, but we are closer than ever to […]

I have a studio in my home at 20358 Sun Valley Dr. since 1974. I taught at the Laguna College of Art, have shown my work at the Laguna Art Museum and am actively exhibiting my work in Orange County, Los Angeles, and elsewhere in the U.S. and abroad. Although I support artist […]
