It is hard for me to understand why the Andersen family seems to be using the courts to obstruct the re-opening of the Hotel Laguna by the new operators. Given that the Andersens have been supportive of our community for many years, why would they now want to keep the landmark of our town dark? According to a front page article in the Jan. 12 edition of the Indy, Georgia Andersen seemed pleased when they closed, saying of the hotels owners, “I’m happy to be done with that family.” If so, why the lawsuits?
Fortunately for Laguna Beach, the new operators also have a sterling history of good deeds to improve our town, so I have much reason to anticipate how the re-opened Hotel Laguna will enhance our community. It is time for all of us to move on.
