Peak stupidity Dear ER: The Hermosa Beach initiative toward achieving the moniker of carbon neutrality is neither cost effective and nor will it lower carbon emissions The City’s staff report reveals some glaring inaccuracies. Recognize that the majority of renewable power is solar, which is generated when the sun shines. Perhaps in the 2030s, battery […]

School on a slippery slope Dear ER: Even though our kids go to American Martyrs School, we support Hermosa schools and all things Hermosa. I’m coaching both my kids teams in Hermosa Beach Little League and our family is involved in other Hermosa Beach sports. We are attending the Hearts of Hermosa annual event, as […]

Carbon neutral a plus Dear ER: The Hermosa Beach Carbon Neutral initiative will make it easier and less expensive to make the choices that enhance our lives, our local economy and our health (“Carbon neutrality goal comes under fire,” ER Mar. 2, 2017). The alternative is polluting fuels that give someone else the wealth while […]

H for the Homeless Dear ER: I write to ask for support for Measure H in our March election. Homelessness is a major problem today in our area. Every day when I walk around Hermosa Beach and our neighboring towns, I see more and more homeless people occupying bus stop benches, doorways and other public […]

Carbon copy Dear ER: For those who love political theater, pay attention to the upcoming self-destruction of the Hermosa Beach City Council. No political party stays in power too long. Why? Power goes to their heads and they keep pushing their personal agendas and become deaf to the “regular people.” You just saw it on […]

Cool down carbon neutrality Dear ER: The Hermosa Beach Planning Commission will hold its final meeting on the General Plan on February 22. Buried within this plan is a controversial goal: “Community Wide Carbon Neutrality by 2040.” Carbon Neutrality (rather than Carbon Reduction) might be a lofty goal, but it comes at a lofty price. […]

Not the proverbial pol Dear ER: I would like to say something about incumbent Manhattan Beach Councilman Mark Burton,  who is running for one of the three seats this March for Manhattan Beach City Council. I am not going to discuss his stance on the issues. Or his record on the city council. There is […]

Dining divide Dear ER: On behalf of my yuppie friends (I was 28 in 1982) I take mild umbrage at this sour grapes and condescending characterization: “South Bay people had neither the money nor sufficient interest in food to support a boundary pushing restaurant…” (Ultrafication Manhattan Beach: the Great dining divide,” ER January 19, 2016).

Lu Lieu: Dear ER: I erroneously assumed when Ted Lieu became our congressman from the South Bay that he was going to represent all of his constituents (“Congressman Ted Lieu announces he will not attend inauguration,” ERNews.com). I obviously was misinformed. He has chosen to be petulant and self serving and completely ignored his oath […]

More and louder Dear ER: I would like to thank Paul Gerhardt for his letter bringing the issue of overhead jetliners to light, or sound if you will (“Low and Loud,” December 8, 2016). He is correct in noting that these flights need to be reported. There has been an enormous increase in flights from […]

Veteran salutes Rep. Lieu Dear ER: As an aging Vietnam combat veteran with purple hearts and a C.I.B. (Combat Infantrymen’s’ Badge), I find myself using the Dept. of Veterans’ Affairs medical system more each year. My treatment at the Gardena Clinic and the hospital in Brentwood is first-rate. Unfortunately sometimes I’m forced to deal with […]

Parental jeopardy Dear ER: Thanks to the Hermosa Beach City Council and city staff for their support of our first “Parent Chat” on December 1, in partnership with Behavioral Health Services and the Beach Cities Prevention Community Council (PCC). An expert panel responded to questions about marijuana legalization and the new Hermosa Beach Social Host […]

Walk street style Dear ER: I agree that the Manhattan Beach walk streets should not be lined with these huge, overwhelming size houses. They look horrible and destroy the look of our beautiful walk streets. Joanne Ciancarelli Manhattan Beach FAR enough Dear ER: We have the same problems in Coronado, with no end to the […]

Low and loud Dear ER: There seems to be many more low flying commercial airliners from LAX over North Hermosa Beach. This seems to occur mainly late at night. Some of these giant planes sound like they are going to land on our roof. Didn’t the beach cities install a device that would record the […]

  A pitch for Jansen Dear ER: Love Kenley (“Kenley Jansen honored by Redondo Beach City Council,” ER November 24, 2016). The Dodgers need him to get to the playoffs next season and should do whatever it takes to keep him. At the same time it’s better for Jansen and his family to stay since […]
