I am not often surprised. I am older and have seen a lot of things that I have found odd. But upon reading your paper this week I was truly dumbfounded by the report that the city council was charging our restaurants rent for dining on the sand. Do these guys stay up at night dreaming up ways to squeeze more tax dollars from our wallets? At a time when Avalon’s business community needs help, they are facing yet another additional expense. Crazy!
Letters to the Editor policy
The Catalina Islander welcomes Letters to the Editor, and Guest Columns.
We prefer topics of local general interest, topics or rebuttals which refer to an article, letter or column that has appeared recently in this newspaper, and that our editors select to be either published in print or online.
Opinions expressed and claims made in letters and columns are those of the writer and not the Catalina Islander. All correspondence to the Catalina Islander is subject to publication. Letters to the Editor are subject to editing for length, typographical errors, and spelling.
Letters they should be e-mailed, mailed or delivered in person to our Avalon office and must contain the writer’s name, address and telephone number (the latter two are for verification, not publication). E-mail letters and rebuttals to firstname.lastname@example.org.
