Farewell Malibu


    After 24 happy years in Malibu, my wife and I are packing up and moving to Leisure World in Laguna Hills. This is a voluntary action on our part and has not been caused by all the unrest that has been our history since we’ve become a city.

    In that regard, let me say that I’ve been an activist for those who have been for slow growth in Malibu. I’ve been accused by the opposition of being part of the “show business” mafia. I’ve been called all sorts of names in “Letters to the Editor” by those who disagreed with my position. Even that was all right. I just considered the source.

    However, I don’t want to leave with a bad taste in my mouth. I met a lot of wonderful people over the years and to all of them I want to thank them for having the best interest of Malibu in their hearts.

    They at least tried to do their best for all of Malibu. To my buddy Walt Keller, Carolyn Van Horn, Joan House, Tom Hasse and Harry Barovsky, I want to say that I appreciate all of your efforts. Your job isn’t easy, but at least you were noticed by those you were elected to serve.

    Even with fires, slides, quakes, “Pacific Closed Highway” and all of the other troubles we’ve run into, they all pale compared to the beauty of Malibu. We’re going to miss it but we’re looking forward to Laguna and making a new home there.

    So again, to all of you, we want to wish you all well and we know that we leave Malibu in good hands. To a happy future.

    Lynne and Bill Egar
