The Dynamic That Keep Leaf Blowers On

The Dynamic That Keep Leaf Blowers On

Editor, We ponder why gardeners don’t obey the ordinance against leaf blowers. Really? I don’t think it’s far fetched to say many gardeners who work in Laguna are in this country illegally. That being said, why, if they so easily ignore federal law, would they observe some petty ordinance that interferes with their ability to […]

Time for Artists to Devise a Statement

Time for Artists to Devise a Statement

Editor, I am a proponent of a village entrance. My suggested model is a classic signage icon, used by television and film to identify southern California to the world. Examples of such icons are the signage at Malibu Pier and Santa Monica Pier, ubiquitous in movies and TV as shorthand for the promised land of southern […]

Plant Isn’t Worth the Risk

Editor, Thank you Rita Robinson for your timely article, “Group Calls for Keeping San Onofre Closed,” Jan. 18 edition. Many signs show SCE plans to restart one reactor dome in March. I have attended all of the NRC meetings held here in Southern California.  At the last one in November I could not believe that SCE […]

Town Gown Harmony

Editor, I am writing to comment on the Laguna Beach Independent story by Daniella Walsh, “Survival of the Fittest in Laguna Canyon,” (Aug. 24).

Exposing the Human Form

Exposing the Human Form

Posing stark naked for 120 long seconds in front of thousands of strangers can be a tribulation. Since 1936, when Margo Goddard posed as the sculpture “Salome,” the exposed human form has been an integral part of re-creating the great works of art that appear in the Pageant of the Masters, which opens its 78th […]

One View on Views

  Editor, I was very happy, as were countless other citizens, to hear that the City Council is taking action to simplify the hedge ordinance to reduce the complexity and high cost of filing a view obstruction claim. Though enacting the hedge ordinance many years ago was a great step forward in protecting our precious […]
