Our Letter to the Editor policy

It is our firm intention to run any letter that any Laguna Beach resident writes to us with few exceptions.

If the subject of a letter is not a newsworthy individual, we will not publish a letter with any inkling of a personal attack.

We will not accept letters written about a business either positive or negative. It is much too easy for competitors to “create” letters about another business or
to find a person willing to write something nice about their business.

If a business is newsworthy, it is probable that we will accept such a letter.

Generally, we will only change objectionable language and will leave spelling and grammatical mistakes as they were written.

The best rule of thumb is that the decision of the editor is final. 


Taking more land for parking doesn’t make sense

I am a resident of Laguna Beach for 50 years and watched many things change but taking open land to make more parking is so insane.  What we don’t is more parking on the outskirts of our city to accommodate more people when we don’t have room enough for the population now.

People will have to decide whether they stay or not stay in Laguna when it is so congested. We could be building parking structures, at our residents’ cost, when we have so many other more important issues to pay for and complete. I also don’t want to see five story parking structures all over our town!

Thanks for listening.
