Noisy Motorcycles

Noisy Motorcycles

Dissatisfaction Among the Populace

Dissatisfaction Among the Populace

Editor, It’s totally amazing how many people have told me they are  “bullet” voting and plan to vote for only one Laguna Beach City Council  candidate, although you are supposed to vote for three.
