Wayne Eggleston, San Clemente

I wish to thank Pete Van Nuys for setting the record straight in his letter to the editor in the Dec. 1-7 edition of the San Clemente Times regarding the traffic nightmare for a drive-through In-N-Out at the old Carrow’s location. Can you visualize traffic backing up to the freeway off ramps along the curb trying to order a hamburger?

The City Council at that time requested In-N-Out to come back with a sit-down restaurant rather than a drive-through, similar to their very successful El Toro location. They agreed to consider that, but alas came back once again with a traffic-congested drive-through. It was very probable that a sit-down would have been approved.

Also, Joe Tolosa, in his Nov. 24-30 edition letter to the editor, made reference to the “old boys” at that time on City Council. In fact, there was a Councilwoman from Talega, who also voted against the drive-through. Isn’t it always more productive to get facts from fiction or you just “heard it,” quoting Mr. Tolosa. If you want all the facts, contact City Hall for a public records request, like I did. They have the facts on record.

  • wayne

    is a anti business politician pro cronie who only allows what will make him money or profit ie the miramar

    Our city council continues to selectively enforce discriminating laws like what you can and cannot be carried on or in ( Americas bestselling vehicle ) a pickup truck like a ladder because their ascetic sensitivities are more important than our civil liberties or needs . while along reserving those rights to carry a latter on giant corporations PU trucks or councils own corvette or prius
    is this the America our fighting men and woman fought for or shall we street sweep this discrimination under the rug also

  • Okay people, we have enough traffic problems, right? There are too many short-sighted naysayers (most likely profiteers) whining that ignore hard facts and trends.

    Instead, try to look at hard trends and use better foresight. The bottom line is we cannot continue to repeat past mistakes that led to the problems we have today (congestion, traffic, noise, etc.) and expect different outcomes.

    • i agree bad place for drive thru but still the recipe for a waffle is wyne and money and i expect a referendum to change the name of san clemente to wynes world
