Mailbag: Response to Jean Ardell’s “Freedom from Religion” column

Mailbag: Response to Jean Ardell’s “Freedom from Religion” column

I love it when liberals twist the meaning of issues like Religious Freedom as intended by our founders, to comport with their bizarre understanding of equality and freedom. Yes, religious freedom means that a privately owed company can adhere to its religious beliefs without government interference or hindrance. And yes, “choice” means that an employee […]

Mailbag: Talking Trash

Mailbag: Talking Trash

Newport Beach is unique. We have seven villages and a Newport Coast. We have the most prestigious Golf Club in America. We have beaches, harbors, parks, and now we even have a hugely overpriced Civic Center. We have a grand variety of celebrities that include Kobe Bryant and Bob Costas. We are named as an end destination for […]

Mailbag: Responsibly Farmed Salmon

Mailbag: Responsibly Farmed Salmon

I want to thank Garry Brown from the Orange County Coastkeeper for giving us at Skuna Bay Salmon an opportunity to address the many misconceptions Mr. Brown has of our Skuna Bay salmon farm operations [Green column, NB Indy, Sept. 27] located in the isolated, glacier-fed waters off of Vancouver Island. Since Mr. Brown has […]

In Box: Feedback on Recent Forum Columns on Trash Collection in Newport Beach

In the August 30th issue, Scott Poetter was all for outsourcing trash services in Newport Beach.  He stated it was working well with the tree trimming services and street sweeping.  A couple of years ago, two large trees fell within a month of each other…one was two houses up from me and the other two […]

In Box: Regarding Scott Peotter's 'Concierge Trash' column

In Box: Regarding Scott Peotter’s ‘Concierge Trash’ column

Nothing like throwing an IED into a room and walking out. Everyone is entitled to their opinion but Scott Peotter is way off base with his slanted views on “Concierge Trash” (Aug 30, 2013). Did Mr. Peotter stop and think that perhaps many residents happen to like the present service, want to keep it and, […]

INBOX: Debating Measure EE

INBOX: Debating Measure EE

(re: “My Turn: Yes on Measure EE,” NB Indy, 10/12:) Marian Bergeson has a long and distinguished record of involvement in the political fabric of our community. In view of this record, it was particularly disturbing to find her seeking to defend Measure EE largely by marginalizing those with an opposing viewpoint. She brands them […]

Inbox: Curry Returns Fire

(Re: “Red Herring Cameras,” NB Indy, 9/7:) For some time now, Irvine resident and Allan Mansoor Field Representative Scott Peotter has taken to the pages of the Independent to make various attacks on the city of Newport Beach and its City Council, most recently suggesting we are “pimps and panderers.” So much for the civility […]

Inbox: A Vote for Daigle

As a former mayor of the City of Newport Beach and an involved citizen, I have some reservations about losing Leslie Daigle, who has been an effective representative on the Newport Beach City Council.  Leslie is a serious, focused, solutions-oriented representative on the City Council who has demonstrated a steady force for fiscally sound budget […]

I’m writing this letter on Memorial Day to honor those military veterans, abroad and at home, who have given so much to protect the civil liberties, rights and privileges of the citizens of this Nation State we call home. Especially those who return home to their State, County and City, to find public employees working […]
