  • Mailbag: Contract a burden to taxpayers

    Despite Huntington Beach's fall into financial oblivion, despite ludicrous employee packages agreed to by our City Council, despite the fact that nearly half of the 28 speakers at the council meeting Aug. 1 protested and pleaded with the council to let...
  • Mailbag: A brand new bag for council

    The plastic bag ban deliberations before the City Council on Aug. 15 represented much more than an environmental issue ("Plastic bag ban in works," Aug. 18). They demonstrated that being pro-business is not mutually exclusive with being pro-community....
