Short (term) sighted Dear ER: I had no idea the Manhattan Beach City Council is banning Airbnb. (“City moves to ban short term rentals,” ER June 4, 2015.”). Didn’t that visiting city panel state 60 percent of retail was supported by visitors? The city is shooting its foot to fix toe toe. Laurie McDermott Manhattan […]

Higher Dear ER: Why stop at 12 percent (“Hermosa Beach activists circulate hotel bed tax pedition,”)? Since no one makes a decision on where to stay based on the bed tax, take it up to 100 percent and then see if people do base their decision on it. Tax, tax, tax, tax. When will it […]

Newletters Cross signals Dear ER: Do the complainers remember that they signed the California Residential Disclosure Report when they purchased their homes (“City prosecutor building a case against Cross Fit gym,” ER April 30, 2015)?

Heads up Dear ER: As an aging athlete who has played and coached both American Football and rugby, I believe if we returned to the old style of tackling/body contact we would minimize head trauma (“Heads up,” Easy Reader April 16, 2015).

The schools’ year Dear ER: Now that we do not have to worry about oil drilling in Hermosa Beach, we need to focus on our schools. Beautiful vistas are not the only draw for Hermosa Beach.
