Opposites attract, right? It certainly explains why my wife and I get along. She exudes charm, optimism, intelligence, empathy and goodwill to all creatures large and small. Enough said about her. Let’s talk about me. Without me she wouldn’t look so good. Remember behind every great woman is an inconsequential husband she drags along. I’m […]

Editor, Recently I noticed a banner across Forest Avenue advertising the Charm House Tour – a traditional fundraiser for Village Laguna. How did this happen as a few years ago Village Laguna transitioned from a 501(c)3 which is an IRS recognized non-profit to a political action committee (also an IRS recognized non-profit with a different […]
Editor, We support Friendship Shelter’s proposal for permanent supportive housing for Laguna’s homeless. The City Council did a good thing five years ago in setting up the alternative sleeping location. For a number of those who were homeless at that time, just having a place to sleep undisturbed and to clean up helped them to […]

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 […]

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 […]

The public is welcome and there is no charge. The meeting takes place at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, 429 Cypress Drive.
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 […]
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 […]
