The Board of Realtors and Affiliates presented local models and local fashions for the enjoyment of a local audience for the "Seventh Annual Only in Laguna Fashion Show." "This is one of the most popular events all year in Laguna," show coordinator Patty Truman said. "Only in Laguna are the mayor and many local dignitaries on the runway modeling and having a great time. This is a heavenly place." Truman chose the theme for this year's show, "Laguna ? A Heavenly Place." She was inspired by Arnold Hano's description of Mayor Elizabeth Pearson-Schneider as "Laguna's Angel" for her efforts on behalf of the families displaced by the Bluebird Canyon landslide.

Recently, Sapphire held a cheese and wine tasting for 5 Spoke Creamery, a new, small, artisanal producer of organic, raw milk cheeses from New York State. Sapphire Pantry is currently the only venue in California where it can be purchased. The charming and enthusiastic Alan Glustoff, the cheese maker, was a former food scientist who worked on developing such things as Cool Whip and Pudding Pops at General Foods.

Two Laguna Beach men, Adam Zuckerman, 37, and Jeff Greenough, 48, were among 23 defendants charged Nov. 7 with fraud in an FBI’s investigation into alleged multimillion-dollar leasing scams dubbed Operation Lease Fleece. Neither man has entered a plea to date, according to Department of Justice spokesman Thom Mrozek. Zuckerman, who owned and operated Brickbanc Capital in Costa Mesa, was charged with one count of mail fraud, Mrozek said. “There is no indication when he will appear in court or even if he has an attorney,” Mrozek said.

The five principles hang in a picture frame on the wall, giving visitors an inkling of what they might expect when they enter the dojo. “Effort, etiquette, sincerity, self-control, character.” These are words that mean a lot to Sensei Jeff Kash, the instructor at the United Studios of Self Defense in Laguna Beach. He tries to convey these things to the young — and the young-at-heart — who enter the doors of the small studio, tucked into a corner of the Albertsons parking lot on South Coast Highway.

Talk about running roughshod. The start to the 2011 prep football season couldn't have gotten off to a better start for Laguna Beach High and first-year Coach Mike Churchill.

All the Breakers did was wreak havoc on the school's football record book. The marks that fell or were tied were: • Most rushing yards in a single game: (579; old record: 443 set in 2009)

Forty freshmen got a nice surprise when they moved into the newly remodeled student housing Saturday at Laguna College of Art & Design's South Campus. The student dorm studios, at 795 Laguna Canyon Road, all featured a modern, edgy and urban feel. "It's actually pretty impressive," said Donna Vu, 18, from San Jose. "It's much more than I thought. " She discovered LCAD through a college website. "It seemed like a interesting place ... like a gem in the cloud of big campuses - magical and surreal," said Vu, who plans to study animation and game art. LCAD converted previous teaching and art studios into the extra student housing, which now accommodates 40 students and also has two apartments for resident managers.

This week, however, was quite different as students screamed and cheered loudly while competing in the school's fourth annual Epic Challenge. Nearly 800 students raced each other and raised money by finding sponsors as they competed in a weeklong event of physical activities. The Epic Challenge is the Laguna Beach school's biggest fundraising event of the year and aims to promote a healthy environment, bodies, minds and kids.

David Kuhn Jr. writes in his letter to the editor (" Mailbag: Traffic signal should be installed at Emerald Bay entrance," May 11) about the dangers of turning south onto Pacific Coast Highway from Emerald Bay. These dangers are eliminated if the driver uses the Emerald Bay tunnel to get to the ocean side of Emerald Bay and then makes a right turn onto Coast Highway. Instead, he wants to install a traffic light and each day make thousands of drivers stop one extra time on their way through Laguna Beach.

John O'Hara has encountered many things in his 34 years with Laguna Beach's Public Works department, some more grotesque than others. About 10 years ago, O'Hara found the body of a dead woman with a plastic bag tied around her neck in the bushes of Laguna Canyon. "I never had the [police] respond so quickly. They were there in three minutes," said O'Hara, who will retire as maintenance lead worker after his shift Sunday. Most days he canvasses beaches, streets and parks, emptying trash cans and collecting loose debris from the sand.

"Lord of War" is an episodic journey through 20 years of Yuri's life as a mega-successful, and highly illegal, international arms dealer. The story opens in New York where Yuri is one of many Russian immigrants dreaming of vast American riches.
