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.

You meet the nicest people when writing about food and you get the occasional delectable perk like being invited to special tastings. 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.

Sawdust Art Festival artist Linda Pirri remembers one of the first times she came to Laguna Beach. She was 18 years old, studying art and told herself if she ever was going to pursue her art, she would do it here. More than 20 years later, at 40, she did just that. She left a successful career in Los Angeles in real estate to devote her life to her art in the historic arts colony. Pirri, now 59, has been at the festival 15 years. This year will be her last for a while, she said, because she's moving to the Kohala Coast in Hawaii with her husband this week.

After several months of stripping, gutting and remodeling, the Inn at Laguna Beach, 211 N. Coast Hwy., is taking the tape off its multimillion-dollar renovations Friday. The upgrades started Feb. 28, and are complete except for the pool, which will reopen later in June, said General Manager Peggy Trott. The only areas not being renovated are the hallways and one ballroom. The last renovation was in 2001. The hotel's owner, Classic Hotels & Resorts, along with L.A. interior designer John Cottrell of John Cottrell Co. in Los Angeles, collaborated on the design, which reflects an island, beachy vibe right down to the photos hanging on the wall.

At the end of the month, Laguna Beach will say farewell to its oldest art gallery, the Esther Wells Collection. Formerly the Laguna Studio Gallery, opened in 1950, director Charlie Ferrazi has announced that on April 30, she will close her doors for good. She cites increased rent as the reason for the gallery's departure from 1390 S. Coast Hwy. Ferrazi has been running the gallery since 2000, taking over for Esther Wells. Richard Challis, the founder of the Laguna Studio Gallery, later Challis Galleries, sold the gallery to Wells in 1984 upon his retirement.

"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.
