Mailbag: Laguna Beach Live! wants more music as well

May 31, 2012

Re: "Hansen: Music is Laguna's artistic stepchild," May 11:

Laguna Beach Live! has been working hard since 2001 to add music to the reputation of Laguna Beach as an arts colony.

We now present more than 30 concerts a year from jazz, chamber music, big band to gospel, world music and bluegrass plus a week-long Music Festival in February.

The sounds this summer include World Music on June 9 at the Woman's Club, Jazz Wednesdays in the Rose Garden of Hotel Laguna every two weeks beginning June 13 and Live! at the Museum, a new series of free monthly chamber music at Laguna Art Museum on the second Thursdays.

We will be happy to help you promote more music as well. Please join our mailing list and take advantage of our great music in intimate spaces that are affordable. Visit us at http://www.lagunabeachlive.org.

Kudos on Compost Giveaway

A round of applause is due to Liz Avila with the Public Works Department for organizing a successful Compost Giveaway on May 12 in the Act V parking lot.

Arriving at 8 a.m. with my gloves and shovel, I joined in with 20-plus locals in scooping up rich, nutritious compost into my six sand bags and got a recyclable tote to boot. There was ample supply, as I was told many neighbors who arrived even at noon, toward the end of the event, were still welcomed to scoop and carry as long as the pile lasted.

The sponsors were helpful and enthusiastic; hundreds of Lagunans participated. My garden and I thank you for a wonderfully successful community sponsored event.

Canyon Acres residents last to know

The residents of Canyon Acres have a long history as founding residents of Laguna Beach, way before Temple Hills or Glenneyre were a twinkle in the eye.

Like most people who live in Laguna, they are proud of their neighborly environment and are in appreciation of that unique identity. They consider themselves stewards of the bucolic canyon.

A recent letter to the editor by Elizabeth Pearson regarding a proposal to relocate several cottages to the entrance of Canyon Acres from the Third Street community/senior center construction site omits or distorts some important details and misrepresents our neighborhood goals.

The project was not rejected because Canyon Acres objected to moving the historical cottages there.
