Venice Oceanarium – by Tim Rudnick Santa Monica Airport – by Bill Worden ————————————————– Dear Beachhead, I’m happy to say that our annual reading of Moby Dick, on the beach went fabulously.

Dear Pardee Properties: Please stop tearing down  beautiful craftsman homes and putting up these monster structures that cut off our sunshine,air and beach breezes. Think about where you live and if you would like a huge structure to be built and cut off the light and air for you. I ask you, if this is...

Dear Beachhead, Thank you for your articles on our murals! The original 15c wash and the 5c dry mural was so famous that anyone who wanted to be anyone came to be filmed in front of it. Bobby Darren was there with his photographer to soak up the ‘hip vibes’ to assist in  changing his...

Dear Fellow Venetians, CONGRATULATIONS on the resounding, unanimous defeat of OPD’s at the Coastal Commission! A proud moment in Venetian self-determination (as John Haag used to call it).

Ballerina Clown – Gene Mendez Thanks, Beachhead! – Steve Clare and Susan Millman ——————————————– Dear Beachhead, Thank you, Delores Hanney, for explaining to me, after 25 years, that Ballerina Clown is a ” pychological resolution of opposites, a salute to those gaudy habitues of Ocean Front Walk.” Oh. And here I thought it was sophomoric...

Dear Beachhead, Re: “Sidewalk and bus stop taken over by New Owner of Venice Historical (sic) Post Office” As one of my neighbors pointed out, Angelica Huston (misspelled Houston) had nothing to do with removing Venice’s historic colonnades on Windward Avenue. It was Robert Graham. Huston is guilty only if you consider women to be...
