• TARNISHING OUR JEWEL:

La Jolla Light reader Tracy Spiegler shares these pictures and writes: “I took these photos at the corner of Palomar Avenue and Neptune Place in La Jolla on Sunday, March 15, 2015, but every Sunday at WindanSea, all the trash cans look like this. There is clearly not enough refuse containers at one of the best beaches in California. Can we get a few of those Big Buddy trash compactors here since the trash pickup is lacking?”

Fellow La Jollans: Please send La Jolla Light your leads of Village eyesores and we will go after the perpetrators. E-mail the scenarios and attach a photo, or call us and we’ll investigate who or what is Tarnishing Our Jewel! Reach La Jolla Light Editor Susan DeMaggio at (858) 875-5950 or e-mail editor@lajollalight.com and please provide photos when possible.
