No Consensus For Landmark Project

No Consensus For Landmark Project

Editor, Two realities have become clear in regard to the parking structure and other improvements proposed for the village entrance: this is a landmark project, and no broad consensus exists. The project will impact the city of Laguna Beach for decades to come— aesthetically, environmentally, and financially. However, despite untold numbers of public hearings, no […]

Keep on Food Truckin’

If you haven’t attended a home football game the last two years, you’re missing out on some of Laguna Beach’s most unique and affordable dining options.  The “restaurants” located on the football field’s western edge are so new, they come and go on wheels each game.  It’s the second season of the Laguna Breakers Food […]

Original School Colors on the Sidelines

Original School Colors on the Sidelines

One of the unifying traditions of team sports at high schools and colleges are the old school colors. Laguna is in their 80th sports season this year and many alumni will be surprised to see the old maroon and white not honored by this year’s sports teams. It doesn’t appear that Laguna Beach High School […]

A Sign of Big City Culture

A Sign of Big City Culture

Editor, The things I love about Laguna Beach are simple. We are a small town with a small population and don’t build huge things like parking structures. I am only 13 years old. I was born here at Mission Hospital in South Laguna and intend to die here. This is how all ugly cities start […]

Incensed Over Tree Ordinance, Cutting

Incensed Over Tree Ordinance, Cutting

Editor, Not a return to the old village; not common sense; not economically responsible. This city council continues to march to its own drum, not its promises, building an ill-conceived cement entrance to Laguna and destroying all of our old growth trees. The new view ordinance does not let a neighborhood decide or even be informed […]

Recapturing Essential Local History

Editor, Dizz’s As Is restaurant is great but it’s not 80 years old.I knew Rick and Shannon, the two owners who opened Dizz’s in the early 1970s, not the 1930′s. With limited funds, they bought mis-matched silverware, plates and glasses at garage sales. Rick ran the “front” and Shannon managed the kitchen. Cioppini was $5.95 […]

Houston, We Have a Problem

Houston, We Have a Problem

Editor, Since the institution of the drain-the-lagoon program at Aliso Beach, the amounts of sand accumulating on neighboring beaches is startling, and makes one wonder how much of our narrow slices of tide pool ecosystems are being buried by this drastic increase in sand deposits. Yet another case of man messing with nature in a […]

Trail Information Source Vanishes

Trail Information Source Vanishes

Editor, This morning, I took my regular morning hike out on the Westridge Trail. I was shocked to discover that all four bulletin boards along that particular trail were gone. All that is left at the four sites is some churned up dirt. At least three of those structures have been in place since the […]
