Judy and I ran into Barbara Diamond the other day. We were pleased to learn that she is now back in Laguna, but saddened to hear of the tragic passing of her son, whom she tended in his last illness.
Barbara has been a long-time friend, and a mentor on all things Laguna – not only to me, but also to all of us. It has felt strange these many months not to see her sitting at the press table at City Council meetings (and, not incidentally, chatting at breaks about what’s really going on up there on the dais.)
It was also welcome news that she has begun writing for Stu News. I think I speak for the town when I say we’re glad she’s back and to know that she will be writing for us again.
