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. Our fine schools draw people here, raise our housing values and contribute to the well being of the community. […]

Back together again Dear ER: As a leader of a spiritual community in Hermosa Beach, I have worked hard for the past 18 months to keep St. Cross apolitical in the debate on Hermosa Beach Measure O. What has struck me most deeply as a citizen and leader of St. Cross is wondering what will […]

O why? Dear ER: As a South Bay resident, local businessman, and leader of one of our region’s most-respected environmental organizations, I feel compelled to simplify the economic choice facing Hermosa residents. There has been much discussion about the $17.5 million settlement fee payable to E & B should Measure O not pass. What is […]

Be gone! Dear ER: There’s something seriously wrong when an $18 billion corporation spends over $400,000 to flood our city with propaganda, TV ads, robo calls, etc. AES hijacked the citizen’s initiative process, convincing a short-term Redondo Beach resident to submit this initiative, now known as Measure B, on their behalf. It’s a blatant corruption […]

A game changing opportunity If Hermosa Beach Measure O passes, our city will receive millions of dollars that can be used to hire more firefighters and police, upgrade our sewers, stop storm water pollution from polluting our beaches, fix our streets, and much more.  Our schools stand to receive millions of dollars to help maintain […]

One NIMBY’s ceiling Dear ER: The Redondo Beach City Council deserves a round of applause for declining to second a motion opposing Hermosa’s Measure “O” on oil drilling.  This is Hermosa’s issue and not Redondo’s.  There are already many non-Hermosa Beach residents weighing in on this issue and if I were a resident, I would […]

Internet origins red and blue Dear ER: I would like to correct Bob Pinzler’s “Net neutrality and the South Bay” (ER Nov.19, 2014), especially because of the important contributions of the Los Angeles area in the development of Internet. The Internet had its origins in an ARPA project in 1969 (it was ARPA before it […]

Santa’s clock Dear ER: Each Christmas we look forward to the photo of Surfing Santa on the holiday cover of Easy Reader. Our children, our grandchildren, and this year our first great-grandchild enjoyed this annual South Bay tradition.

P and L politics Proponents of Hermosa Beach Measure O, E & B Natural Resources, had an advertisement in Easy Reader saying their oil drilling project at 6th and Valley will net Hermosa Beach $500 million in royalty payments. E & B is certainly aware that at current oil prices, their claim of $500 million […]

The parking Grinch My mother-in-law just got a ticket for apparently not being within her marked spot. She believes she was in it, but that is not the point of this letter. She is staying with us because my father-in-law is in intensive care at Cedars. It’s been a tough month and getting a ticket […]

The Q question Measure Q failed. Maybe $54 million was too high a price tag for the voters of Hermosa Beach. Maybe they thought that a sum of money that large would be squandered. Maybe there weren’t enough voters with school-age children. Or maybe, they’re holding out for free money from the oil recovery project. […]

Arigato I would like to thank the Hermosa Beach Police for their assistance and kindness with a difficult situation. An elderly gentleman only speaking Japanese and seeming lost wandered past our house. My husband and I called the police and they arrived and with great sensitivity and care helped him find the home from which […]

It pays to be (carbon) neutral Experts hired by the city of Hermosa Beach have proved that Hermosa Beach could be the beneficiary of hundreds of millions of dollars by making the investment to be a Carbon Neutral City (a city that harvests as much renewable energy as it uses). Additionally, the experts have reported […]

Zero base reasoning Dear ER: The simple question I asked myself when looking into the move of the Hermosa Beach Farmers Market is, “If we started the market today, where would we put it?” The answer seems clear. Our beautiful Pier Plaza is the centerpiece of town and the obvious choice. We have fallen behind […]

What’s good for the fisher is good for the bicyclist Dear ER: For those tasked with the decision making of whether or not to ban fishing from the Manhattan Beach pier, consider the following. The last two deaths attributed to a shark bite in Southern California were to a surfer and a bodyboarder. Neither of […]
