133, More than A Winding Road

133, More than A Winding Road

By Rita Robinson | LB Indy Imagine gathering together eight of your favorite local musicians, each with big talent and often a big personality (some strong and brooding, some strong and loud), most of whom you’ve known a good part of your life, and creating a new band? First, you’ve got to have some bucks […]

Pet Peeves

Pet Peeves

I Yam What I Yam I yam what I yam. I’m not Popeye the Sailorman. I’m not strong to the finish because I won’t eat my spinach, and, ah, I’ll gladly pay you Tuesday for another beer today. I’m Pet Peeves’ the wimpy, complaining man. Moan. Moan. Wow, there was big news in the Indy […]

Integrity Now Overshadows the Election

Integrity Now Overshadows the Election

Editor, Jon Madison needs to document his claims of an Ivy League Ph.D., UCLA law degree, and membership in the California Bar. He deserves respect for his business and philanthropic endeavors, and those probably would have been sufficient to ensure his election, without the degrees. It’s not about degrees. It’s about integrity. In Laguna, integrity […]

Falsehoods Undermine Democracy

Falsehoods Undermine Democracy

Editor, Democracy, particularly its election process, is endangered in the ongoing City Council campaign. Betrayal of the public trust and fairness are also at issue.

Candidate Distances Himself From Village Laguna’s Endorsement

Candidate Distances Himself From Village Laguna’s Endorsement

Editor, Recently, yard signs have appeared throughout the city pairing my name with the name of another candidate. These signs make it seem as though we are running as a team. They are inaccurate and misleading. Placement of these signs was neither authorized nor encouraged by me or my campaign.   They are not consistent with […]

Agree to Disagree Without Invective, Please

Agree to Disagree Without Invective, Please

Editor, It’s a wonderful life, a cliché that most of us who live in Laguna Beach happily subscribe to. It’s on the new Village Laguna sign endorsing its favored city council candidates. I’ve heard questionable motives/actions attributed to Village Laguna that amaze me. I’m now on my second term as a Village Laguna board member, […]

Vazquez Handicaps the Race

Vazquez Handicaps the Race

Editor, The Transition Laguna Candidates’ Forum at the Congregational church offered me these insights: Kelly Boyd. Issues: safety, sidewalks and saving water. Not out of the box thinking; concerns about behavior during council meeting (re: see Sept. 2 village entrance section of video) with his inappropriate censure of Ann Christoph. Pearson or Whalen should have stopped […]

Project Violates the Ethos of the Canyon

Editor, This project is located directly in front of and below our home, where we have lived for the past 20 years. Castle Rock is a rural, small scale neighborhood, with single family residences that have been seamlessly blended into the hillside over the past 70 years. Most of our homes can’t even be seen […]

He’s a Fan

He’s a Fan

Editor: I am glad that Toni did not take “the last turnoff”.  We need her because she listens to the constituents and gives “quality of life” high priority in her decisions. She has shown concern for the betterment of the community by actually visiting the affected residents (me) on two separate occasions (DRB appeals; and […]

A Fan Still Dancing in Her Seat

A Fan Still Dancing in Her Seat

Editor, I am still jumping for joy or at least I wish I could jump as high as the dancers of Bodytraffic. The performance my husband and I joyfully witnessed last Friday night by Bodytraffic at the Laguna Playhouse was amazing. The evening started at 6:30 with the co-Artistic Directors Lillian Barbeito and Tina Finkelman […]
