Thank you to Pam Estes and the Boys & Girls Club of Laguna Beach for living in the solution. Their introduction of a “semi-portable skate park” will go a long ways towards insuring that Laguna Beach kids get a chance to hone their skateboarding skills in a safe and friendly environment. We are fortunate to have such an organization in our town.
As for SNAG… well, my fellow hill-dwelling cowards wouldn’t know a solution if it slapped them in the face. This SUV-driving, bicycle-cursing class of Laguna residents reminds me how much has changed during the 20 years I’ve been a Laguna resident. Don’t they have homes in Newport Coast or Irvine for these CC&R control freaks? I’m sure SNAG will go after cyclists and mothers with prams next.
The ultimate indication that SNAG is a bunch of whiny armchair activists came with the distribution of the SNAG Manifesto to our mailboxes in my Bluebird Canyon neighborhood. Did SNAG members get off their prodigious butts to distribute the flyers? No. They hired day laborers to wander the hills, taping their missives to our mailboxes. Lazy. Cowardly. Control freaks. Better off in a planned community. Leave the skateboarders alone.
