  • Mailbag: Empty lots not taxpayers' problem

    Amazing. It's amazing that a group of environmental extremists can find the money to pay for processing an initiative, to print expensive propaganda and mail it to homes all over Laguna, but want our money to buy themselves more empty lots they call open...
