Councilman Wayne Baglin said Monday night that he will be a candidate for a second, consecutive term on City Council. "Absolutely," he responded when asked about his plans at the Laguna Canyon Conservancy meeting where he was the guest speaker. If successful, it will be Baglin's first back-to-back win. Baglin said he first ran for office in 1972 and lost. He said he lost one more time before he was elected in 1978. A career move to Saudi Arabia forced him to leave office before completing his term.

I am appalled that the U.S. Corps of Engineers, courtesy of the county of Orange, is permitted to dump from to 1 million to 5 million gallons of untreated urban runoff water every day, directly into the surf zone at Aliso Beach this summer. This is a response to the policies and politics of cities above the Aliso Estuary to reduce their toxic water and excess flow, [which occurs] at the expense of us all in Laguna Beach. I am not an expert on this issue but it doesn't take much brain power to understand you can't dump this kind of foul water into the ocean and not expect pollution that will badly affect the health of not only young surfers, body boarders, skimboarders, kids, my grandkids, beach-goers and our trusty lifeguards, but will produce horrible red tides that cause more bug-eyed distortions to the ocean environment.

The council approved $213,500 in Community Assistance Grants with only two changes to the recommendations by council members Kelly Boyd and Elizabeth Pearson, who reviewed applications and recommended allocations. The council also divvied up an unallocated $2,300 to bump up already funded grants.
