From Les Miklosy, Laguna Streets:
It has been 3 months since John Colvin’s fatal-hit-and-run in Emerald Bay. In an email from his wife Joan I’ve learned she still has no accident report from the LBPD.
Following three separate motorcades, last month the LBPD reminded us again of our dedication to the sculpture memorial “Eternal Legacy” for fallen motor officer Jon Coutchie.
The city commission for the “Eternal Legacy” memorial art is $75,000. The total spent on LB safe cycling infrastructure from 2008 to present (6 years) is $5000 plus the Sharrow symbols on Glenneyre (about $250 each)
A search for ‘John Colvin’ gets 6 hits, a search for ‘Jon Coutchie’ gets 25 hits at the on-line newspaper Laguna Beach Independent.
Remember these events when you ride your bicycle in Laguna Beach.
Another cover-up is almost complete, residents will forget, all’s well in the feifdom.
We asked Les if there was any more information about the driver who killed John Colvin. He replied:
We don’t know who the kid is except by a newspaper account, 19yo. I learned separately the car has a Emerald Cove sticker on it- that’s a gated community within a gated community. The kid likely lives there.
The cops remain tight-lipped. The investigating officer is Sargent Louise Callus LBPD.
Joan is in NYC, her message was short, her meaning was “don’t call us we’ll call you” so I’ll not press her for details.
When we know more, we’ll post it here.
