The (Nov. 9) Palos Verdes News featured a big splash on Page 1 about the Ports O’Call lawsuit. A sole letter bemoaned the fact that the PVN is straying away from news about the PV Peninsula. Here’s one clue as to how to fix that anomaly.

We may have to describe the Charlottesville white extremism in a better way. The phrase needs to be worded to reflect the goodness of the white majority all over the U.S. It should be reduced to reflect the deeds of only a few supremacists among whites.

(Re: “Taking aim: gophers in the cross hairs at golf club,” Aug. 3) As a resident of Rancho Palos Verdes, I have a different look at the Trump Golf Club than perhaps an outsider might see it. Mr. Trump took an incomplete course and invested his own resources to give us a beautiful golf cours…
