Folks love to remember the words of former Mayor Don Larson, who shaped the tone and tenor of Seaside during his long and productive time in city government. A “Don Larson meeting,” for example, is a city meeting run with efficiency and timeliness, without the baggage and verbiage some cities endure.

I remember the former mayor commenting that although he loved Seaside’s events — Hood to Coast, the beach volleyball championship ­— the crowds here in Seaside set his vacation time in motion. I can relate.
