Del Mar potholes: Large and deep

As I was weaving my bike between the Del Mar potholes recently I noticed they are not only large and deep but they have been there so long that vegetation has grown into many of them.

Del Mar Mayor stuns longtime reader

All I can say is, this is the boldest and most laudable new idea to come out of City Hall since Del Mar became a city in 1959.

Del Mar Rotary Club announces Ethics in Business Awards

Rotary clubs use a foundation of four core values as their guiding principles towards accomplishing their mission. These four principles, known as the “Four Way Test,” state that all members of the club will be truthful, fair to all, builders of good will and beneficial to all.

Due diligence on tree issue missing

I perused the Jan. 30 article, “Del Mar removes Loren Nancarrow memorial bench,” regarding the brouhaha of the dog-bone shaped bench and how the vigilant city of Del Mar is out to rectify this unholy act, leaving no stone (bench) unturned to do everything according to Hoyle and find the offending person who placed said [...]
