Protect Commission from itself Dear ER: It often goes unrecognized, but it’s thanks to the California Coastal Commission that some of my favorite places in LA, such as Abalone Cove and Palos Verdes Cove are accessible for all Californians to enjoy. The recent move to oust Coastal Commission Executive Director Dr. Charles Lester is concerning…Read More→

Island in the shopping center Dear ER: “Pen-in-su-la (noun): a piece of land almost surrounded by water or projecting into a body of water.”  What does that mean to us?  Since we live in Redondo Beach, at the base of the Palos Verdes peninsula, it means that for just about anyone to get to the…Read More→

To preserve or opt out Dear ER: The goals of the Manhattan Beach preservation ordinance were well-intentioned and well supported initially, but that all changed when the council went against the Planning Commission recommendation and removed​ the “opt out” provision (“Details decided for Manhattan Beach Historic Preservation,” ER Jan. 6, 2016). Without this essential provision,…Read More→

Water treats Dear ER: Trent Larson’s letter arguing for a desalination plant in the South Bay makes reference to technology being the “golden goose” laying technological eggs for our future (“Water everywhere, to drink,” ER Letters Jan. 14, 2016). One sentence before invoking the technological goose, he shrugs off increased waste water recycling with a…Read More→

Smoke cleared Dear ER: I would like to thank the Redondo Beach Fire Department. The other night, at 1:30 a.m., I woke up upstairs and smelled smoke. As I proceeded downstairs, the lower level was thick with smoke. I frantically ran around looking to see where the was coming from, to no avail. I went…Read More→

Light in the Shade Dear ER: So people opposed to the Redondo Shade Hotel are in favor of keeping the property looking like a dump forever (“Lease default puts Shade Hotel, City of Redondo Beach at odds?”). I couldn’t be more excited for the Shade to open. Thumbs down to the City of Redondo, thumbs…Read More→

Wave of the future Dear ER: Now this would have put Redondo on the map (“Kelly Slater introduces ‘the perfect wave’ machine,” EasyReaderNews.com.) Unfortunately, the powers that be at City Hall ignored this offer and abdicated harbor revitalization to a mall developer with no harbor or waterfront experience. Jim Light Website comment   A lot…Read More→

Waterfront plan a step in the right direction Dear ER: It’s been six months since I finished my second term as a Councilmember in this great community that I’ve been a part of my entire life — Redondo Beach. Although I have enjoyed more time with family and friends these past months, I continue to have…Read More→

Where have the steam rollers gone? Dear ER: Have they finished paving Hermosa Ave. yet? I had to stop and check for a flat on my bike because the paving job is so rough. Can’t Hermosa afford a steam roller?  If you want to see good paving, check out Aviation Boulevard between Manhattan Beach Boulevard…Read More→

Correction Due to an editing error “Hush Money” (Letters to the Editor Dec. 3, 2015.), said that Hermosa Beach Mayor Carolyn Petty offered to pay residents who limit their city council comments to under two minutes. The letter should have said that Petty offered to make donations to Walk with Sally.   Seagulls are locals…Read More→

Letters to the Editor, December 3 edition: remembering Bryan Newman, hushing Hermosa Beach, hoping for the Redondo waterfront

Hush money Dear ER: I was greatly disturbed by Hermosa Beach Mayor Carolyn Petty’s offer to pay residents who speak less than two  minutes at city council meetings. Residents are entitled to speak for three minutes, while surrounding cities allow up to five minutes. How is it that Mayor Petty can represent the community while…Read More→

Big thinking Dear ER: Anyone who believes the alarmist whackiness that an oil well represents a “kill zone” should leave Los Angeles pronto (“Oil’s slippery slope,” ER Letters Nov. 19, 2015). There are over 3,000 operating wells pumping over 15 million barrels a day all over LA. But then again the LaBrea Tar Pits is…Read More→

The “thanks” in giving Dear ER: Prior to the recent passing of my wife Tina, her lunch dining routine entailed a call to the Madame Tomate deli on Aviation Boulevard in Manhattan Beach for home delivery.

Hermosa’s oily third rail Dear ER: Howard Fishman’s letter (“New vision,” ER Letters Nov. 5, 2015) demands a response, specifically as it relates to the upcoming March campaign for the open Hermosa Beach city council seat. Regarding E & B Oil, he states “calculated risks” are sometimes necessary in “difficult” negotiations. Having a 34-year polluting…Read More→

Huntington-ed Dear ER: Don’t fall for this propaganda from the city, builders and the chamber (“Mixed feelings on development in Redondo Beach,” ER 10/29/2015). They fooled the public into approving high density in Huntington Beach by lying that it was a “Commercial Revitalization” and started building 100-unit per acre buildings. The citizens rose up last…Read More→
