how great is it to read a well written article by a resident that is not about him/herself.

Hi Seth,
You've chosen the correct word, "GROWTH" in describing the city of SEAL BEACH; and given the credit to the right man, RONALD REAGAN, for his quotation.
I completely agree with YOUR comments in this column.
CONGRATULATIONS on all YOUR contributions to the CITY'S GROWTH.

Well, yet another Christmas comes and goes with Santa forgetting about us again. Us being the computer users/patrons of the Los Alamitos/ Rossmoor County of Orange Public Library (OCPL) patrons. The boots on the ground.

Even though we were told OVER THREE years ago that the computers would be updated by the first of THAT year, we still crawl by.

There used to be a rush to get to use the computers but no more. Typical government effect and cause: OCPL won’t update them so nobody uses these computers. The equipment is so old that users found other sources then coming to their local public library. The screens are 17-inch and old. The browsers were updated a couple years ago but are far below standards. I believe the CPUs, which by the way are Compaq's, are the originals from a decade ago.

So once again, OCPL has shined us on. Eight computers sit empty most of the day. LAR has a chance to be a valuable resource but is relegated to being a sore spot.

If Helen Fried, Director of OCPL, and her staff had to work with this equipment, OCPL would come to a screeching halt.

We’ve waited patiently. We ask every now and then. “They, i.e., suits in Santa Ana, are working on it,” is all we get.

The Friends of the Library worked tirelessly to build a new beautiful front porch and walkway for patrons. Then they walk in to see the computers. Typical pig and lipstick scenario.

Now if there was only a reason for people to come to the library.

We’re the little library that couldn’t.

The "Leisure World Spending questioned" letter is very, very true. However, the Golden Rain Foundation Board of Directors listen only to what they want to hear. It is too bad that the "CEO" an employee is being given all of the $$$s of our money to spend.

We need to be more vigilant in how the city picks it's employee candidates. Ms. Ingram lacks the kinds of experience that you would find in like cities. Her "background" in public education is not appropriate for a myriad of reasons for this Job. Her behavior in this matter is one example that she is in way over her head. The counsel is to blame for this.

When exactly was any public notice given that District One was losing it's rep on the planning commission? How convenient that Ms. Machen "happened" into Old Town....just in time to get set for the 2018 Council One seat run. Like this wasn't planned. Do they think we are just stupid or what?
