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.

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.
