LETTER: Costs justified for safe and legal beach access, rail upgrade

February 18, 2016

In a letter to the editor (“Hypocrisy on Encinitas City Council?” Feb. 4), a resident accused me of a double standard in not considering repair and replacement expenses for a rail crossing in Cardiff, while voting against artificial turf at Leo Mullen sports park for reasons he assumed were the ...

LETTER: Hypocrisy on Encinitas City Council?

February 4, 2016

This is a tale of two projects approved by the Encinitas City Council. The first is the Coastal Rail Trail (CRT) approved on May 20, 2015, and eagerly championed by Deputy Mayor Lisa Shaffer. This approval was followed by an add-on project to construct an at-grade railroad crossing at Montgomery Avenue....

The primary reason Encinitas incorporated as a city in 1986 was ...

LETTER: Thank you for Pacific View editorial

August 17, 2014

I just read your article. Thank you for a well balanced editorial. I have to say that I agree completely with your assessment. Pacific View School Arts Center and School, I believe, will be a diamond for Encinitas. The Hall property is great, too, although a swimming pool would have been a smart decisi...

LETTER: Encinitas, my home

August 17, 2014

My family and I moved to Encinitas in 1963. It was a sleepy little beach town with a population of 6,000. It was paradise.

LETTER: Time for some new faces

It is time that the Encinitas City Council have some new faces. Mayor Jerome Stocks has had his time at the public trough long enough. But just whom should we select to act as our best representatives? I offer the following for your consideration. In general, I am personally opposed to any of the n...

LETTER: Let residents vote on growth

July 31, 2012

For most participants, the process of updating the housing and land-use elements of the Encinitas General Plan has been frustrating and difficult. These elements must be resolved before the City Council can consider the overall General Plan Update. To engage the public in redrafting the housing elem...
