Letters to the Editor

Letter: Councilmember Kempf Collaborates with StuNews Editor/Owner

I only recently received public records from City Hall that I requested over four months ago. These documents were extremely redacted, but something slipped through their secretive black-out net. There appears to be an unhealthy relationship, or should I say collaboration, between Shaena Stabler, the editor/owner of StuNews, and Councilwoman Sue...

Letter: A PAC Intrusion

On Aug. 29, there was a much welcome afternoon of music in Bluebird Park. It was a beautiful day, people seemed to genuinely happy to resume our normal summer tradition and the event was well attended. Enter Councilmember George Weiss, all decked out in his bright blue Laguna Residents...

Letter: Regarding Ti Amo Property

“Ti Amo” is Italian for “I Love You.” Maybe that explains the city government’s inexplicable infatuation with Ti Amo as the site for a future fire station. Or park. Or parking lot. Or something. They won’t say for sure what the plan is for the site. Maybe they don’t know. Or...

Letter: Regarding Merrill Anderson’s “Development Done Right”

I'd like to make two corrections to Merrill Anderson's letter to last week's Indy titled “Development Done Right”. The architect who designed the project, Bianchi Court at 496 N. Coast Hwy. is Todd Skenderian not Morris Skenderian. And the builder is Oligino Laux Construction. Everything else Merrill had to...

Letter: Who is Policing the Police?

Mr. Warren, my guest column had nothing to do with Critical Race Theory in Laguna Beach. Your tone sounds as though the content of my article, “Who is Policing the Police” ruffled your nerves. I wrote this article with all women, girls, men and boys in mind. The article questions...

Letter: Scouting Prepared Our Kids For Life

When we first had kids, my husband and I were overwhelmed with all the new responsibilities of being parents. We couldn’t even begin to fathom how we would help this beautiful new boy in our arms become a man in our world. There was so much to teach, model,...

Letter: Laguna Residents First Initiative

I just read the big ad of “Laguna Residents First” and I would like to address some of their big points. Maintain Laguna’s Livability – don’t know what that means but my assumption is that Laguna Residents First was created as new voice for the old voice of Village Laguna since...

Letter: Recall Lessons

On Sept. 14, Californians resoundingly beat back a specious power grab for control of not just our state's governorship, but potentially the U.S. Senate. Gov. Gavin Newsom won 62% of the vote in 2018, and as it stands, he has nearly 63% of Californians voting no on this recall....

Letter: On Ballot Initiative

I couldn’t agree more with Mr. Weil about the importance of reading in his letter to the editor of Sept. 17. While it appears that he has read reports of Malibu’s Measure R, it seems that a close reading of the Laguna Residents First Ballot Initiative didn’t occur. It...

Letter: Tom Osborne’s Column ‘Who Speaks for the Sea Mammals?’

We all need help sometimes, but the main reasons these marine mammals need our help is because of problems we have created. As Tom Osborne summarized them: climate change; Domoic acid (from fertilizer runoff); DDT dumping; gunshot wounds; fish hooks and other fishing gear. I found the climate threat to...
