Low and loud Dear ER: There seems to be many more low flying commercial airliners from LAX over North Hermosa Beach. This seems to occur mainly late at night. Some of these giant planes sound like they are going to land on our roof. Didn’t the beach cities install a device that would record the […]

  A pitch for Jansen Dear ER: Love Kenley (“Kenley Jansen honored by Redondo Beach City Council,” ER November 24, 2016). The Dodgers need him to get to the playoffs next season and should do whatever it takes to keep him. At the same time it’s better for Jansen and his family to stay since […]

Sandbox – Unfriendly architecture

Ultrafication and the absence of limits in Manhattan Beach Unfriendly architecture Dear ER: The charm of Manhattan Beach’s Flat Walk Streets is being destroyed by thoughtless structures that have no relation to their environment. The city needs to set guidelines to protect unique neighborhoods like these. What’s right for the Hill Section (with its rising […]

A Shore thing Dear ER: Fifty percent of new Manhattan Beach houses built between the ocean and Valley Drive have basements (*Absence of limits,” ER November 17, 2014)? That is a high number and I think the City Council members who approved basements on 30-foot by 90-boot lots should have to live next to a […]

Doing your parents proud Dear ER: I opened my mail this evening to find an envelope from Eich Middle School in Roseville California. A dear friend of ours whose daughter teaches special needs middle school kids chose me to thank on Veterans Day. As I read each letter it made me so proud to have […]

Staged right Dear ER: Theater director Mickey Blaine is a genius and has impacted so many lives at Vistamar School, where theater is an experience every student can have (“A different slant to theater,” ER November 3, 2016). Thanks for the great article. Pam Davis Facebook comment New eyesore Dear ER: An old home on […]

  End pays for the means Dear ER: Ugly political campaigns are nothing new to the South Bay. I covered the Congressional race that pitted Republican incumbent Robert K. Dornan against Democratic challenger Gary Familian for Easy Reader in 1976 (“Race to the bottom,” ER October 27, 2016). The mudslinging was particularly intense, fueled by […]

Explosive issue Dear ER: Southern California Gas Company has recently appeared twice before the Manhattan Beach City Council and both times declined to address a serious problem that threatens the health and safety of all beach cities residents. Their nearby, deteriorating Playa del Rey natural gas storage facility contains 2.6 billion cubic feet of pressurized […]

Waterfront pipeline Dear ER: Redondo Beach Councilman Bill Brand recused himself from The Waterfront issues at City Council meetings, but he is still privy to The Waterfront issues in closed sessions (“Waterfront reboot,” ER October 13, 2016)? So, he still has access to confidential information regarding the most important matter facing our city. In what […]

Letters to the Editor 10-13-2016 Where was Muratsuchi Dear ER: George Orwell wrote “He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past.” I was recently reminded of this quote when I got a piece of campaign mail from former Assemblymember Al Muratsuchi and Hermosa Beach City Council member Stacey Armato suggesting […]

Go Hermosa Dear ER: The question of keeping the Hermosa Beach Fire Department versus “Go County” is not so simple to answer.  Hermosa Beach taxpayers have to ask, “Is public safety a priority?” Most importantly, once you “Go County,” there are no “Go Backs.” Good or bad, you are County forever, increased yearly billing and […]

BECAUSE IT’S ANNOYING Dear ER: I thought that it was o.k. in Letters to the Editor to use features like ALL CAPS, italics, bold, exclamation points, etc. When used properly, they can really enhance a piece of writing, DON’T YOU THINK?! Brian Hittelman Redondo Beach p.s. WAAAAHH!!! [Editor’s response: ONLY IF YOU ARE THE EDITOR. […]

Goes with the job Dear ER: Recusing oneself for having a strong opinion on the matter (“The ethics of Councilman Bill Brand’s recusal,” ER September 15, 2016)? It’s his job to formulate a strong opinion on the matter, I’m not buying it. Edmund Purcell Website comment   Wait ‘til the deposition Dear ER: Councilman Bill […]

An immigrant’s thank you Dear ER: At midnight, August 31, Chef Wang’s Kitchen, which had resided at 308 Pier Avenue in Hermosa Beach for nearly the past three decades, closed its doors for the final time (“Chef Wang closing after 29 tasty years,” ER May 19, 2016).

Schooling the sup Dear ER: Manhattan Beach Unified School District Superintendent Mike Matthews wrote in his “Welcome to the 2016-17 School Year Newsletter that “All of our schools are based on semesters now.  And the first semester ends before Winter Break. That means that our high school students will not be studying for finals over […]
