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).

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).

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.

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).

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?”).

Wave of the future Dear ER: Now this would have put Redondo on the map (“Kelly Slater introduces ‘the perfect wave’ machine,” EasyReaderNews.com.)
