Rhianna Six Month’s Anniversary; Mr. Manian’s Three Month’s Anniversary

June 13, 2006

It has been six months since Rhianna Woolsey died (December 7, 2005) in the first traffic fatality in Coto de Caza in the last ten years. Sadly, this week also marks the Three Month Anniversary of Mr. Morteza Manian’s death, as he was struck by a teen age female, while he was riding his bicycle southbound on Lexington Way approaching the intersection of North Hampton Place. Mr. Manian was transported to Mission Regional Hospital, and succumbed to his injuries in the late hours of 3/12/2006. The teen driver was eventually arrested and charged with vehicular manslaughter, felony hit and run and resisting and delaying or obstructing an officer.

What is even more tragic however is that public safety continues to be Coto de Caza’s Tar Bay, as evidenced by the proceedings of the First 2006-2007 Coto de Caza Board of Directors meeting – where the board president is readily willing to assign a board member to work on the sport’s park issue, but silent with regards to public safety.

For a dramatic display of the Coto de Caza board of director’s priorities, simply visit the association’s web site at www.czmaster.org - you can find the usual suspects, but conspicuously absent is any mention of a Public Safety Committee! – Not to mention that all Coto de Caza roads, with the exception of CDC drive, are not traffic patrol worthy, since he property manager conveniently “forgot” to re-certify, allegedly, because of a missing tickler file!

Second Coto de Caza Traffic Fatality In Three Months

Coto de Caza recorded its first traffic accident fatality in ten years in December of 2005. In less than three months, the second fatality has occurred.

Sunday 3-12-2006, at 1.30 pm, 75 year-old Morteza Manian was riding his bicycle southbound on Lexington Way approaching the intersection of North Hampton Place, while the 16 year old driver of a Nissan Frontier westbound on North Hampton Place approached the same intersection of Lexington Way. As the driver slowed down to stop, the right front corner of the Nissan struck the left side of Mr. Manian’s and the bicycle

Coto de Caza Teen Held Responsible for Second Traffic Fatality In Three Months Arrested and Charged

CHP Officer Chris Goodwin has confirmed that the Coto de Caza teen responsible for the second fatal traffic accident In less than three months, has been arrested and charged.


In its continued commitment to public safety, on June 1, 2006, CotoBuzz unveiled a Crime and Vandalism Management tool (see below for first installment), containing ke y metrics and a side-by-side comparison between Coto de Caza and Ladera Ranch. “This is valuable information for our communities”, said Charles Gibson, President of the Ladera Ranch Public Safety Committee.


When the current Coto de Caza board of directors first took office, Mitch Hill told the joke of a new executive who received three sequentially numbered envelopes from his predecessor and told to open these only when he had major problems and needed help.

Coto Dreamin'

We value the US Constitution, freedom, democracy, transparency, social capital, diversity, personal accountability and tolerance (tolerance, not acceptance) . We do not believe the Constitution should be turned On/Off at the gates or at the whim of the board or service providers, as if it was just another Coto transponder.

We do not make jokes, we simply watch the Coto de Caza Board of directors, the LA Trash and the Orange Crud Repository and report the facts
