Kudos for Osborne’s Observations

Kudos for Osborne’s Observations

Editor, I support Tom Osborne’s column regarding the City Council election and global warming. His stance was thoughtful, well reasoned and free from harsh invective. I wish Tom were running for office. He is a Laguna treasure. His mission to remind Laguna residents about the urgency of environmental issues deserves the attention of all residents. […]

Hall’s Position Proves Convincing

Editor, Because of the article written by Tom Osborne (“When Ideology Trumps Facts,” Column, Oct. 24 edition), my wife Maria and I finally agree to vote for Michele Hall.

Criticism of Village Laguna’s Spending Doesn’t Add Up

Criticism of Village Laguna’s Spending Doesn’t Add Up

Editor, The truth seems to not mean very much lately to a few in Laguna Beach especially during this campaign season and I would like to take Howard Hills to task for his latest letter-to-the-editor where he states that Village Laguna spent “10 times over the opposition in 2012”. Is he really serious? Because if […]

What’s In A Name?

What’s In A Name?

Editor: This city council election season has been interesting. Not only do we have seven candidates for three seats, but you need a scorecard to keep track of some of the candidates’ names.

Iseman Understands the Issues

Editor, After reading all the many responses by the candidates for the City Council and listening at the forums, Toni Iseman was the only one that gave answers that showed an understanding of the issues.  She should be retuned to the council. John Selecky, Laguna Beach

Owner of Landmark Comes Up Short in Popularity Contest

Editor, Thanks for the teaser on the new book about Richard Halliburton. He has always been a very intriguing character to me. The Hangover House has been such a landmark. It’s too bad the biggest jerk in Laguna owns it now. Andy Schoembs, Laguna Beach

The Spin Stops Here

The Spin Stops Here

Rob Zur Schmiede’s detractors have taken great pains to spin his experience and accomplishments to convince us he is not qualified to be a council person.   Contrary to the spin doctors spin, Rob’s achievements, in over 36 years of toil in both private and public sectors, more than qualify him to be a council person.

Gibson’s Goal Could Jeopardize School Funding

Gibson’s Goal Could Jeopardize School Funding

Editor, I am a parent of kids in our Laguna schools and have been following the school board election.  One candidate, Annette Gibson, has no connection to our schools or district, no kids in our schools (literally ever), and no background in education. Instead, Gibson is running to attack the new state-mandated academic standards that […]

When Ideology Trumps Facts In the ongoing, fractious city council election, Lagunans have been jolted by Jon Madison’s inability to validate implausible, phony academic achievements. Lagunans received another jolt at the Firebrand Media-organized candidate forum on Oct. 14 when candidate Michele Hall expressed mocking skepticism about human-caused global warming in response to a question from […]
