Opinion: It’s time to open the chapter of the 20-20 decade
By Rick Wildman
President, La Jolla Town Council
It’s time to open the chapter of the 20-20 decade. Let us all begin anew to realize our hopes, dreams and aspirations for a better world. This chosen pathway will surely give each of our lives even greater purpose and meaning. Grounded on our learning experiences of past recent years, we now have the opportunity to focus our collective wisdom on good works that will bring us closer together with a keener vision of how we may gain a unified sense of direction as well.
The La Jolla Town Council will begin its seventh decade on Jan. 13 with our 5 p.m. meeting at the La Jolla Woman’s Club. Would it not be a dream come true if we were to find ourselves by the end of the decade as the La Jolla City Council? And why should we not? We enjoy the gifts of a temperate climate and academic prominence. La Jolla is already the world’s cradle of creativity for science, theater and art. Our venue on the California Riviera, coupled with our liberal tolerance and friendliness, can surely nurture these years before us to become the perfect time to bring the experience of La Jolla, our Shining Jewel by the Sea, as our gift to everyone.
With a wink to the future, our meeting will honor our magnificent Christmas Parade and Holiday Festival Youth Marshals, Sponsors and Volunteers. We will also have some work to do. Our Bird Rock residents will help us all find a reasoned solution to this question: How can we replace noisy nighttime helicopter flights with a calm repose?
Our meeting will conclude with a celebration of 60 years of your Town Council. It will include such notables as your friends and neighbors, who are more even more priceless than our favored venue. Please join us.
