Project Sets a Development Precedent

Editor, Laguna Beach is such a unique community, and our uniqueness is what makes us such a desirable place to live and for tourists to visit. We have raised our family here and seen so many things happen for the good. Consider our purchase of the main beach commercial properties...

Development Should Halt Due to Drought

Editor, California’s top water experts say that we are in the third year of drought that may very well become the worst drought in 500 years. That’s right 500 years. We are going face mandatory water rationing very soon. Our state’s reservoirs are already nearly...

Enforce the Anti-Leaf-Blower Law

Editor, Why do our professional gardeners continue to use their leaf blowers with impunity? Don’t they see the air polluting dust clouds they create? Don’t they know that the use of leaf blowers is against the law in Laguna Beach? Don’t they know that they are subject to fines...
