Bring back the birdman Dear ER: Why is Manhattan Beach banning the Bird Man (“Birdman banned,” Letters, June 11, 20111). You state someone complained. How about the rest of us who are happy to see a man being kind to sea birds? We should be thanking him for feeding these beautiful birds and in so doing, spreading […]

Walk to shop Dear ER: My family and I would welcome Gelson’s to south Manhattan Beach (“Neighbors challenge proposed Gelson’s,” ER July 16, 2015). Currently we have to drive to north Manhattan Beach for groceries. I personally make several trips a week to Ralphs and Whole Foods. If we had a Gelson’s I could and […]

Blue Heron harbor Dear ER: It is a violation of state and federal law to trim or cut trees or shrubs while Night Herons and Great Blue Herons are nesting, but there are regular violations of these laws in the South Bay.  Two years ago, palms on the Esplanade were trimmed drastically after the Night […]

Sewer level math Dear ER: Now that Hermosa council members Pete Tucker, Michael DiVirgilio, Carolyn Petty and Hany Fangary have scammed their million-dollar annual sewer tax onto the backs of Hermosa’s property owners (on top of the $2.5 Million ‘Utility User’s Tax’ still paid annually after 30 years), the very least these politicians should do, […]

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 […]

Let’s see the plans Dear ER: The need for additional classrooms for Hermosa Beach schools is evident. By the next election, the Hermosa Beach City School District will have had yet another year in which to write a building bond and present a plan that is acceptable to voters. The residents around North School are […]

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 […]

Bring it back Dear ER: I’ve lived in Redondo for many years and what drew me to this city was how alive the waterfront was. Unfortunately, I don’t spend my weekends down there anymore (“On the boardwalk, ER May 7, 2015). Anyone who has lived in Redondo for a long time has seen the deterioration […]

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)? When you buy a home near a commercially zoned area you are made aware of the potential impact. I loved […]

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). Tackling using your shoulder is more conducive to safety.  Using the head as […]
