When Patrick Whelan dreams, he dreams big. The artist from Whelan Galleries woke up one morning nearly a year ago with the phrase "Night of 100 Angels" in his head. He didn't know what it meant, but he couldn't get it out of his mind. "I don't know where the idea came from, but it came from somewhere," Whelan said. So he decided to create an event with that name in Laguna Beach. He approached Laguna gallerist Nancy Stubbs and The Cottage Gallery Director Adam Sandy to help bring the idea to fruition.

Angel’s trumpets are New World and East Asian plants that possess beautiful, variously colored, trumpet-shaped flowers. The plant is ornamental, and although the leaves and seeds of certain species contain alkaloids with medical and narcotic properties, all should be considered poisonous. It is reputed that Indian thugs once used angel’s trumpet to poison their victims, and it was officially used to execute criminals in India. The Swedish botanist Linnaeus did not wish to use the “barbaric” Indian name of dhat for the plant, so he modified it to the Latin root of dare (to give)

A loss turned into a gain for Compound Fractures. Idle this past week in the city of Laguna Beach Community Services Department?s fall 16? slow pitch softball league play, Compound Fractures were able to capture the Wednesday League title by virtue of a loss suffered by the Angels. The second-place Halos suffered their third-straight defeat when they fell, 8-4, to the Hotwings, a loss that gave Compound Fractures a two-game lead in the standings with one game left on the regular season schedule.

The Hotwings were in unfamiliar territory Monday at Riddle Field. The team ? which usually plays its games at mid-week as one of five teams in the Wednesday League of the Laguna Beach 16? winter softball leagues ? played its final regular season game two days earlier due to the Thanksgiving holiday. Playing earlier did little to deter the Hotwings, who, for the first time, came away with the league title following a 19-4 mercy-rule victory over the Compound Fractures. Hotwings highlights included the pitching of Shaun MacGillivray, home-run hitting provided by Trigg Garner, the base-running of Aaron Talarico and the solid defensive play of first baseman Paul Wolsey and outfielders Jimmy Hanna and Mike Zingale.

WHAT'S SO FUNNY Well, you Angels fans have been world champions for two weeks now. You have a cap that says, "World Champions" on it. And you'll be 2002 world champions forever. I'm from Chicago myself. We have two baseball teams there. One of them hasn't won the World Series for 85 years and the other one -- well, the other one is the Cubs. Since moving west in 1979, I've become fond of the Angels, but I never considered them my team. My baseball loyalties remained Midwestern.

I don't care what the calendar says, if teams are playing baseball in Arizona, spring has sprung. In fact it was more like summer last week when my sister-in-law, Patsy Hadlich , and I made our annual trip to the Cactus League games, with her son, Jeff , the designated driver. Here are some tips for keeping cool. Tuck a wet paper towel under your cap. Guys can splash water onto their T-shirts; women probably are best to keep the drips in back. Keep hydrated with water.

(Re. Dave Connell's letter "Mailbag: Pay attention to property tax bill," Oct. 21): I know your political party affiliation expects you to make such comments, but do they explain to you how our taxes/fees pay for more than salaries and pensions? I agree some salaries/pensions are very excessive, which has been shown even in our very own city. But I have yet to hear GE, IBM, other corporate giants, or any multi-billionaire traders on Wall Street raise their hand and say, "I will pay for a new bridge, upgrade our freeways, build new schools and make sure we have enough teachers and supplies, or ensure national safety at airports and train stations.

I watched the Angels/Dodgers spring training game Sunday on television. It wasn't nearly as much fun as sitting in the stands at Tempe Diablo Stadium, the Angels' spring training home field in Tempe, Ariz., where I spent part of last week. Cactus League games are not about winning. They are an opportunity for players to shape up and try to impress the coaches, for the coaches to evaluate them, and for fans to get up close and personal with their favorite players. Kids toss balls and Sharpies to the players, who oblige with autographs and toss the balls back.

While some might enjoy the newspaper over a cup of coffee, Bette McIntire has a different purpose for herLos Angeles Times. For the last five years, the Sawdust Art Festival artist has made her art from the pages of the daily paper, cutting out words to string together a poem and illustrating the theme by hand - using paint, crayons and handmade paper, or stamps. The newspaper has the "raw ingredients of the day," she said. It's how you use those ingredients, she said, that makes a difference.

Tears and healing words were flowing Sunday at a memorial service for longtime Lagunan Charles Reginald Conwell, known affectionately as “Cowboy.” Conwell — noted for being hauled to the city “drunk tank” at least 600 times over many years — was killed Jan. 9 when he crossed Laguna Canyon Road into the path of a minivan. Police are investigating the incident but do not expect the driver to be charged. He was on his way to the Alternative Sleeping Location set up for homeless people at the ACT V parking lot, but had decided to cross the road where there was no light or crosswalk.
