“There are no passengers on Spaceship Earth. We are all crew.” — Marshall McLuah, 1964   What if Earth Day were every day, not just once a year? I was out of town for Laguna’s Earth Day celebration, but I heard from friends and family that the event was celebrated in the true spirit of the founders of the event. My mind drifts back to the early years — the dreamy-eyed gaze of my 20-something mind — that if we all worked together, we could really make a difference.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — Efforts to get an environmental study of the Arroyo Seco off the ground received a $200,000 boost from the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Energy and Water on Friday, but the study still needs more than $1 million in federal funding if it is to be completed within three years, officials said. Rep. Adam Schiff — who represents Burbank, Glendale and Pasadena — originally submitted a request for $600,000 in funding from the sub-committee but is still optimistic about the long-term prospects of the proposed study.

Three Laguna Beach residents are homeless after a fire destroyed 70% to 80% of a 2,000-square-foot home in the 400 block of Arroyo Chico on Tuesday night, Laguna Beach Fire Capt. Jeff LaTendresse said. It was feared the fire could spread to homes on the small street, which is surrounded by eucalyptus trees, and the neighborhood in the cul-de-sac was evacuated, he said. A woman who lived in the residence came home about 9:30 p.m. and reported that the deck was on fire, LaTendresse said.

The City Council overturned a Design Review approval of a remodel in favor of the Blue Line alternative, for which no plan was submitted either to the board or the council. The board was directed to consider a concept the neighbors supported but the board had rejected in favor of what was dubbed the called the Pink Line Plan. Both the plan and the alternative were named for the color of stakes to indicate heights of the proposals.
