A diver missing since Thursday evening off Treasure Island beach in Laguna Beach has still not been found. The missing diver has been identified as John S.

He was “free diving” without scuba tanks while spearfishing with two friends, Kravetz said. “Apparently, all three had driven to the beach together in order to go ‘free diving.

A Buena Park man reported missing in the ocean off of Treasure Island in Laguna Beach Sept. 11 is believed by police to have faked his own death, Laguna Beach Police Sgt. Jason Kravetz said Tuesday. John Sung Park, 29, is suspected of trying to run down a woman with his car less than two weeks after his two companions reported that he never returned from spearfishing. Divers searched for Park for several days, but no evidence of him came to shore, Kravetz said. “That was unusual,” Kravetz said.

The Laguna Beach High baseball team opened play in the Newport Elks Tournament with a victory, but since dropped its next two games at the week-long event. The Breakers began their season last Friday with a 12-9 win over host Buena Park. On Saturday, they made their home debut against Valley Christian of Cerritos, but dropped an 8-2 game to the Crusaders. On Tuesday, Laguna fell 4-1 to Nogales. "We're 1-2 right now, and these are games that we can learn from," Laguna Coach Dave Dopf said.

It’s astonishing to get to the end of a year and realize all that has happened since the last time we took stock of events. There weren’t any landslides or other local disasters in 2008 (knock on wood, since there are still a few days left) but the year didn’t lack for drama or crises. Of course, 2008 will be known as the year the bottom dropped out of the world economy and the ramifications of that are still unfolding. In Laguna Beach, however, property values have so far held up, and the city and school district both counted their blessings throughout the year with no decline (actually some increase)

Several years ago, I read in the paper about a whole street of beautiful old jacaranda trees in Buena Park that the City Council had decided to remove because their roots were affecting the sidewalk. Horrified at such a callous decision, I remember thinking, "Thank God I don't live in a city where they would cut down old trees to maintain flat sidewalks. " Little did I know that I do live in such a city. I never would have believed that here in Laguna Beach, a city that the rest of Orange County mocks as "tree huggers," our City Council would blithely decide to chop down 60-year-old trees that shade our downtown and provide much of the charm and ambience that makes Laguna special.
