Tree Sniping

Tree Sniping

Editor,   I like the idea from Transition Laguna members about planting fruit trees (Letters, “A Fruit-Bearing Solution to Eucalyptus Problem,” Jan. 6).   I also suggest that the proceeds from all fundraising by Laguna Village and Ann Christoph be used to support local residents who don’t have enough money to trim their beloved eucalyptus […]

Facts vs. Scapegoats

Facts vs. Scapegoats

Editor, I agree with Ganka Brown and her call to limit campaign spending for city council elections. How about an ordinance?   Oh yeah, we already have one. In fact, Village Laguna championed one several years ago and the City Council passed a $30,000 spending limit and because of our First Amendment rights the limit needed […]

Voting for View Protection

Editor, I strongly recommend that each and everyone of us take advantage of all public meetings and ask the candidates point blank what they are going to do to help families whose property insurance policies have been cancelled and help protect the value of our property.   The fact that the city has done little to help homeowners who are at […]
