In response to Ms. Blurock's letter dated Aug. 3, "The 'old spirit' of Laguna is still alive," it is incredible to me how one homeowner can hold the entire neighborhood hostage.
Her "large grove of Eucalyptus trees" in North Laguna are a danger to nearby homes, pedestrians and motorists.
This is not the first time that a big section of one of her very large, 60-year-old trees has fallen, nor will it be the last.
I hope Ms. Blurock has adequate homeowners insurance, and the city has sufficient funds to defend its hands-off position regarding these trees, when one falls and hits someone like it occurred in Newport Beach.
Tourist praises local musical production
As a visitor to Laguna Beach from Florida, I feel compelled to write to you about the finest local theater production I have ever seen — one that may be overlooked by your wonderful community. "Ruthless" is quite possibly the best musical comedy that nobody has ever heard of.
