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 […]

Gould was golden Dear ER: Now that the new Manhattan Beach branch of the L.A. County Library System has opened, we want to sincerely express our appreciation to departing Library Manager Don Gould.  Under Gould’s leadership, the Manhattan Beach Library became a prominent fixture in our city, developing dynamic programs for a wide range of […]

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 […]

Who’s beach is it? Dear ER: What we need is more Orcas (“Saving Sea Lions,” ER April 9, 2015). I learned to fish on the Redondo pier in the early ‘60s and was a deadhead (unpaid deckhand) on the City of Redondo.There were an estimated 25,000 sea lions in California. Now there are over 300,000. […]

Redondo revenge Dear ER: Congratulations Redondo Beach You just messed up again by voting down the fun. Measure B was supposed to be a way for us Palos Verdians to set up a little home away from home. Us people from Palos Verdes like to do a little something called “slumming.” When we go slumming […]

Money under the pillow Dear ER: I listened intently to the discussion at  the March 24 Hermosa Beach city council meeting regarding raising the Transient Occupancy Tax, or hotel tax  to increase city revenue. I heard something that night I’ve not heard before. The word hotel has gone from singular to plural .  Simply put, […]

Letters to the Editor: in praise of CenterCal, against Legado, iPads in schools, and more… [March 26 edition]

Together for good Dear ER: We all keep saying that CenterCal is only in it for the money, that they don’t care about the residents of Redondo and are only looking out for themselves. That often happens with developers, but if that were true in this case, why would CenterCal be spending so much money […]

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 […]
