Too Much of a Hurry to Approve Rather Than Improve

Editor, Thanks to all who spoke out against the massive Longi project proposal way out in the canyon. The testimony showed clear opposition to the size by organizations and individuals from all over town, despite statements that just a few neighbors object.

Revving Up Girl Power

Revving Up Girl Power

Maggie Carter’s boss was “in the oil business.” He relentlessly harassed her, a situation she could not tolerate for long. Perhaps it was her own naiveté as a 20-year-old, or her own sense of self-worth. But she did what was unheard of in 1972 and reported him to his superiors. For her courage, Carter, now […]

Unexpected Outcome for Earth Day Event

Unexpected Outcome for Earth Day Event

Editor, Saturday was a spectacular day in Laguna. It seems most everyone escaped the inland heat by descending upon Laguna, where they were treated to an Earth Day / Kelp Fest collaboration that showcased the best of our environmental sensibilities. Nancy Caruso’s third annual Kelp Fest was by far her team’s best effort yet. The […]

BY SUZANNE DUNN Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton stopped briefly last month. So did one of her Democratic rivals, New Mexico’s governor, Bill Richardson. Four years ago, so did presidential candidate Wesley Clark. While far from the nation’s Capital, Laguna holds its own as a political stomping ground for presidents and candidates seeking national office, dating […]
