Laguna wins whale tail Mayor's Challenge
Laguna Beach has been declared the winner in the Mayor's Challenge from the California Coastal Commission.
The contest pitted Laguna against Dana Point and Santa Monica to see which city's residents could buy the most new whale tail license plates, which were designed in part by Laguna Beach artist Bill Atkins.
Laguna has been promoting the plate sales through decals on area transit system buses.
"I'm excited that Laguna Beach won!" Mayor Toni Iseman said in a statement. "It was great fun to participate in this friendly challenge and to support the California Coastal Commission (CCC) in their educational programs initiative."
A week dedicated to fire prevention
Fire Prevention Week is Sunday through Oct. 15, and the Laguna Beach Fire Department is encouraging residents to come up with a plan in case of a house fire.
Firefighters will also visit local schools throughout October to help educate on fire safety and emergency preparedness.
