Letters: Macpherson lawsuit settlement agreement

Dear ER: After reviewing the Hermosa Council’s secretly worked up and signed Macpherson lawsuit settlement agreement, it appears the entire council drank Jim Jones’ Kool Aid (now with toxic oil) as served up by the two bozos on council, “Frick and Frack”, the two aging wannabe-politician-carpetbagger councilmen Michael DiVirgilio and Patrick “Kit” Bobko, who by-the-way […]

Letters: Hermosa Beach School District

Thank you to the numerous community members with the courage to write letters to the paper concerning the Hermosa Beach School District.

Letters: Smoke free Hermosa

Kudos to Hermosa Beach City Council for going smoke free outdoors. I wish the city of Redondo would follow suit. I am so tired of smokers whining about their rights being taken away.

Letters: Long-term best interests of Hermosa Beach

Boeing-Boeing [THEATER REVIEW]

Outdated and contrived it may very well be, but the Norris Theatre production of “Boeing-Boeing,” penned by French playwright Marc Camoletti in 1960, and smartly directed by James W. Gruessing today, is very funny and engaging. That it won a Tony Award in 2008 for Best Revival of a Play must certainly attest to the […]
