  • Mailbag: Thankful for efforts to help homeless

    When we read of the program proposed by the city last year to deal with the issues concerning our homeless population, we were more than a little skeptical. We thought too little was being done. Recently, we walked the length of both Main Beach and...
  • Curves thrown at speedboarding

    Curves thrown at speedboarding
    Speedboarders may be banned by a future ordinance from some of Laguna's steepest streets, but their sport did not hit a dead end Tuesday. The City Council voted for skateboarding regulations and to ban skateboarding on portions of Summit and Bluebird...

    Nothing but S.K.A.T.E.
    Growing up in Huntington Beach, Val Bertignoli played S.K.A.T.E. almost every day with friends. This weekend, he'll be at the center of a tournament again — only this time, he's looking to show off his business savvy rather than his skateboarding...
  • Editorial: Skating and city streets don't mix

    Laguna Beach city officials are finding themselves in the unenviable position of having to curtail something that is a lot of fun. And fun is important to Lagunans, especially those reared on the thrills of surfing and other water sports. Of course, the...
  • Mailbag: City is blessed with great music

    First Sunday was a Super Sunday for chamber music. Thank you, Laguna Beach Live. The Quartet from Colburn School gave a vibrant performance. Still in their 20s, these young people shared their love of music with us — joined for two of the numbers...

  • Mailbag: 'Quiet zone' should extend to motorcycles

    I applaud the efforts of the City council to rein in excessive noise pollution of any kind ["Council approves quiet zone," Coastline Pilot, Feb. 18]. Laguna Beach is one of my favorite places to spend leisure time, but of late the level of traffic noise...
  • Skaters in own league

    Dominick Walker graduated from Costa Mesa High last week. The diploma signifies the work Walker did in the classroom. Anyone who watches Walker on the skateboard doesn't need similar written documentation to be aware of his skills. He is one of the...
  • Mailbag: Speedboarders are a hazard

    My wife and I were on our way to see the doctor, when speedboarders were on our hill at Crestview Drive again. They usually visit our hill, between a dozen or so, their groups getting more and more numerous in recent weeks. Yesterday we witnessed...
  • Mailbag: Should skateboarders be licensed?

    Speedboarding is dangerous for the boarders, but that is their problem — let kids of all ages have fun. It is also unfair to motorists and cyclists who pay to use the streets and must obtain licenses and insurance for the privilege. If the...
  • Mailbag: It's unfair to pick on the skateboarders

    A kid broke his leg. He was writhing in pain. A host of other kids are suffering injuries they will carry with them for a lifetime. Yet, the public actually pays good money to watch these kids do this to each other. Coaches teach and beg the kids to...
