Dance studio owner clarifies the record

While I very much appreciate the wonderful recognition and photos in the Town Crier’s Family Spotlight magazine (Feb. 26), I would like to clear up a couple of mistakes.

First, my son is not, nor has he ever been, named Jackson, as the article states. He is simply Jake, the 9-year-old love of my life.

Don’t point fingers at LAH residents

I am responding to the Town Crier’s front-page article “Despite drought, LAH still swimming with pools” (Feb. 12).

I am not quite sure what to make of this article. Am I supposed to be upset that those selfish Los Altos Hills residents don’t realize that there is a drought and still have the audacity to want to fill their pools with water (which they, of course, will have to pay for)?

Quarry serves fundamental purpose

So now the anti-quarryists are making a fuss about blasting (“LAH council urges county probe into quarry blasts,” Jan. 29).

How else does one get rock out of a solid formation? Where else should the South Bay get its cement? This writer hopes that the quarry and its neighbors will coexist for many more years. Here’s why.

Loyola Beauty Salon continues to operate

Regarding the Town Crier’s article on the proposed mixed-use development for Loyola Corners, I would like to emphasize one important fact (“Commission says try again,” Jan. 29).

While the article discussed the proposal in detail, it failed to mention that our shop, Loyola Beauty Salon, located at 999 Fremont Ave. in Los Altos, is still open and in business for the foreseeable future while the property owner seeks approval from the city for his proposal. As a result of this article and the accompanying photo of Loyola Beauty Salon, people are now questioning our stability, and our business has suffered financially. We have received numerous phone calls from our concerned clients and friends asking whether our shop has shut down.

No mystery in downtown parking

The city of Los Altos Downtown Parking Management Plan and the Downtown Public Parking Data sheet both accurately report the number of parking spaces, despite comments to the contrary (“Los Altos mysteries explored,” Jan. 29).

In the mid-1990s, the city purchased two downtown parcels – 400 Main St. and 230 First St. The private businesses operating in those locations were allowed to continue, and the city opened up 54 of the existing parking spaces for public use. While preparing for the eventual sale of the property, the city demolished the buildings in 2010 and used the site as a staging area to minimize construction impacts of the downtown beautification and First Street streetscape projects.

Help stop vandalism at Redwood Grove

I’m writing this urgent request to the Los Altos City Council and Police Department to please take immediate action to stop the increasing vandalization at the Redwood Grove Nature Preserve.

In the past, I have observed and documented the destruction and have sent photos to the police and the Town Crier. I have continued to monitor the situation, only to see it deteriorate further.
