SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the DP Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

DAN JENGARO, Dana Point
They say Dana Point is a smoke-free city. Am I the only one who sees people smoking everywhere, and our OCSD deputies working hard on real crime? This is no coincidence.
There is absolutely no way, absolutely no reasonable way we should expect our well paid, highly qualified and hard-working deputies to spend their time and our money writing citations and tickets for cigarettes?
It seems there are quite a few people that are quick to champion the success of OCSD, then encourage pushing legislature making their jobs even more difficult than it already is.
