Foliage as Invasive as Cancer

Foliage as Invasive as Cancer

Editor, Cancer is an interesting disease; you cannot just trim it away and hope for the best. It requires a doctor with expertise. I say this as I perceive the new version of a proposed ordinance is like a map for not dealing with a cancer in this city. Vegetation that is going viral is putting […]

Calling Out Proponents of View Protection

Calling Out Proponents of View Protection

Editor, In a previous letter to the editor, I correctly predicted the tactics that would be used by Village Laguna and their followers – intimidating people directly or indirectly, doomsday words like there will be no trees in Laguna (“Council Disregards its Pledge,” Letters, Nov. 29.), accusing City Council members of sleight of hand (most of […]

Defending the Position of Taxpayers Group

Editor: Paul Freeman, lobbyist for Village Laguna on Measure CC, has joined Johanna Felder and even Laguna Greenbelt Inc. in accusing Laguna Beach Taxpayers Association (LBTA) of opposing Measure CC because we are stingy, dishonest and lack vision. Was it something we said? LBTA support was indispensable to voter approval of the last public school bond […]

She Objects to a Characterization

She Objects to a Characterization

Editor, While vacationing in France I thought I’d take a look at the local papers and I came across John Kreber’s June 1 commentary about Village Laguna.   It’s so perplexing that someone could write about an organization they evidently know nothing about, present fiction as fact about the organization, and then mention ethics. A definition […]

Village Laguna Forgets Ethics

Village Laguna Forgets Ethics

Editors,   Village Laguna: While they are a nonprofit, they are not a charitable nonprofit but a mutual benefit nonprofit. In other words, they exist for the benefit of their members, not for the benefit of the public, according to attorney Bruce Methven. So it should be no surprise to anyone why they would be running around signing up […]

Keeping Score

Keeping Score

Editor,   Although Ann Christoph and I seldom agree about many things, I do agree with her editorial of this week that we should look at the voting record of those who represent us in City Council (“Decisions Erode Village Character,” Oct. 21).  Her signature ending “Love it or Leave it,” exemplifies a very closed […]

Defending Village Laguna’s Stance

Defending Village Laguna’s Stance

Editor,   I’m really tired of all the folks (especially builders and architects) who rail against Village Laguna (“Historic Cottages on Chopping Block,” April 22).  It is true that Village Laguna takes what seems like the far-left position on many projects, but I think that it is entirely necessary to provide a counterbalance to those […]
