More Crime watch groups in Seal Beach are a welcome sight . Our nightmare began when we became victims of crime in mid January when theives broke in and took the irreplaceable. We wish to learn more about the Justice Solutions Group. We would appreciate more information. Thank you

Seriously? This "transparency group" is nothing more than a team of lawsuit lazy lawyers who threaten cities with a lawsuit for their own gain. This is about the lawyers' profits not the people's business, certainly not about the Brown Act. When did we start trusting lawyers before our neighbors. Hogwash!!

Congratulation on the great article about the U.S. Navy's proposed replacement of the Naval Weapons Station Seal Beach’s ammunition pier and waterfront facilities. The Navy has been a great neighbor and I feel very proud every time I see a ship at the dock. While reading, I couldn't help wondering if our city is talking to the Navy about Seal Beach's vulnerability to sea level rise (SLR). California's state government has launched an initiative to address SLR in all future coastal capital improvement projects due to the recommendation of recent SLR studies backed by solid science. Models created during these studies show that our Old Town area could experience significant flooding with as little as 4 feet of rise and within as little as 50 years. Perhaps I've missed it or it's been happening behind the scenes, but I haven't noticed this topic being addressed by our city government. Perhaps our representatives could use the Navy's April 7th public meeting to start a dialog on this important topic and maybe even launch our own joint planning with the Navy as they improve their facilities.

Audrey is a true gem of a person and we are all better off knowing her and having her and Lus as our neighbors!

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.
