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

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 […]

Laguna Beach, Laguna Canyon

Historic Cottages on Chopping Block

Saying his opponents “shot themselves in the foot,” Laguna Beach resident and developer Ken Fischbeck rescinded a proposal made earlier this month to move and renovate two historic cottages sequestered to an empty lot in Laguna Canyon four years ago. Fischbeck, vice-president of Tresor Construction, was planning on moving the cottages back to town on […]

Setting the Record Straight

Setting the Record Straight

Editor, Having spent the better part of the holidays digging out from under the mud that inundated my canyon neighborhood, it’s time to deal with some more mud that a Village Laguna board member, Cindalee Penney-Hall, has thrown at me (Letters, Dec. 24, 2010). Here are appropriate corrections to her latest unguided missive: 1. I have […]

Potemkin Village Laguna

Editor, Last week in City Council chambers, I promised to report on Councilmember Verna Rollinger and her merry band of Village Laguna vigilantes any time they try to manipulate our political process.  Here’s Report #1 about 154 Pearl Street, site of the oldest cottage in Laguna.   For two years, the property owner diligently worked […]

Village Laguna Exerts Undue Influence

Village Laguna Exerts Undue Influence

Editor, I read with great interest last week’s letter by Village Laguna board member Cindalee Penney-Hall comparing me to Stalin for pointing out gross irregularities in the voting process for the Design Review Board (“Academic Interference,” Letters, Nov. 5). The letter is an important political document because it reveals three basic truths that every city […]
