The cold north wind began blowing hard Monday afternoon, dropping water temps below 60. It seems that the same cold wind has now been blowing a lot longer in terms of our town and/or city. I’m not exactly sure which one it is anymore.
It seems that almost every given week this town or city takes on a new personality. One week kayaking is in at the Montage; the next weeks it’s out. This week we’re talking about the Iseman Marine Reserve Plan, which will ban all fishing over a 7-mile stretch of Laguna Beach.
I think any time you’re taking away jobs from those who have been involved in their respected industry like fishing it’s darn right cold — like the north wind. Our town or city, whatever you may call it, should not be worsening our local economy but finding ways to strengthen it. Cutting out jobs isn’t a way to do it; perhaps finding compromises is a better way. You’re talking about seven miles of coastline here that will be deemed a total “no fishing” zone.
