His 160-page book, "A Day in the Bleachers," about the first game of the 1954 World Series, is considered a baseball classic and is still for sale online.
The Rev. Colin Henderson said when you are in your 90s, it never a bad idea to have a man of God in your corner.
"Arnold is the kind of person who cares for the less fortunate," said Henderson, and that puts him in Hano's corner.
Hano is on the board of the Laguna Relief and Resource Center, which provides services to the homeless community of Laguna.
The Hanos, who have been together for 60 years, served in the Peace Corps.
They have been honored as Laguna Legends by the Laguna Canyon Conservancy and as Villagers of the Year by Village Laguna.
Carolyn Wood honored
Environmental activist Carolyn Wood was honored at the March 20 council meeting with a proclamation recognizing her contributions to the city.
Wood's retirement from her longtime seat on the Parking, Traffic and Circulation Committee prompted the proclamation.
"You are one of the reasons Laguna Beach is what it is today," said Mayor Jane Egly before presenting the proclamation.
Wood was a member for 11 years. Her efforts to improve circulation and parking downtown were unflagging and backed up by documents. Her records are legendary. It has been said that her home is an archive.
Whenever there has been a threat to the natural beauty of the canyon or an opportunity to enhance it, Wood has been a vanguard, armed with facts.
She was among the first, and certainly most vocal, to call the 73 Toll Road a money pit that simply did not pencil out.
The proclamation's "whereases" began with Wood's co-founding of the Laguna Canyon Conservancy and serving as its president for 24 years.
