Mailbag: We need more dietitians like Hartshorne

November 14, 2013

Re: "A Tasteful Display," Coastline Pilot, Nov. 8.

Bravo Megan Hartshorne, registered dietitian and Laguna Beach Unified School District nutrition consultant.

From one dietitian to another, I am so happy and excited to see her in our school district exposing our children to The Harvest of the Month events.

The Comice pears you served the children during recess at Top of the World Elementary School looked delicious. And I am glad people are learning about jicama. It's a vegetable to know.

How lucky we are in Laguna Beach to have this woman. I wish every single school in America had a dietitian on staff doing this type of work for children.

With vote against structure, Laguna wins

The core issue with the massive Village Entrance Project was resolved at the recent City Council workshop. We the People, the group organized in opposition to the Village Entrance parking structure proposal, is gratified that the council adopted our ballot position and rescinded the multistory parking garage.

Thus, with only the four City Council members' vote we (Laguna) won. Upon final city adoption, We The People shall formally disband and celebrate that our seaside community will return to some political tranquility.

We are confident the "new"' Village Entrance will reflect both taxpayer prudence and beauty. Thanks for the interest in the ballot petition.

Some people had chance to vote

I have a couple of observations about Tuesday night's Village Entrance meeting.  

First, the opponents got something even better for themselves, something denied the rest of the 20,000 residents of Laguna Beach. Ultimately, the group of about 200 got to vote on the project's fate.  

When Mayor Pro tem Elizabeth Pearson reported that she had been told by proponents that they weren't speaking up because of intimidation by opponents, she was booed.

'Thrilled' by democracy in action

I am thrilled to share that my wife, Chris, and I watched democracy work at the Laguna Beach City Council workshop Tuesday. All sides deserve to be applauded.

It's time to realistically prioritize

I attended a portion of the City Council special meeting on the Village Entrance Project.  It was obvious the city heard the concerns of the citizens and spent a lot of time and money preparing for this meeting.
