Shorewood’s legacy Dear ER: Like many South Bay real estate professionals, I spent many a great years working and carrying with honor the Shorewood name (“Vista Sotheby’s to acquire Shorewood Realtors,” ER August 11, 2016). As a Hermosa native, while growing up in this great community, the Shorewood name was an ever present pillar that […]

Tho is love Dear ER: Love is what our beach cities is all abou. Vantha Tho was that (“Beloved hair stylist killed in Hermosa,” ER August 4, 2016). I was at her residence to drop off a starfish with flowers and a candle last Sunday and then attended her services. Vantha meant so much to […]

Beware the Ides of March Dear ER: How very disappointing to see the Manhattan Beach City Council manipulated by former council members (“Manhattan Beach modifies upcoming council elections,” ER July 21, 2016). It was not a pretty sight to see the Council dancing around the subject of extending terms. How could they so easily slide […]

  Letter to the Editor 7-14-2016 Learn from the past Dear ER: I read with interest the letter to the editor last week regarding cancelling the Manhattan Beach March, 2017 election for city council members and treasurer and changing the local election to coincide with the state and national elections held in November of each […]

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
