It may seem like a dreary day here in Chicago but for some the future has never been brighter. The decision was made to lift the city’s surfing ban and open up two beaches for surfing in the summer and four beaches for year-round. It’s been nearly seven months since our first meeting with the Chicago city parks district, along with supporters Vince Deur, Todd Haugh and Mike Urban. Dozens of phone calls, hundreds of e-mails. I must admit it does seem strange to be talking about surfing in Chicago, but how completely mind blowing that it was illegal.

City Treasurer Lauri Parisi is running unopposed for the second time. Parisi was appointed to succeed Treasurer Susan Morris in 1999 and ran unopposed in 2000. "This is supposed to be a 25-hour-a-week job, and really, it's more than that, but I am the luckiest girl in the world," Parisi said. Her job is to invest the city's funds, oversee the investments and make recommendations to the council on financial issues. She reports to the City Council, but as an elected official she is responsible to the residents.

In "Deliverance," it was dueling banjos. Banjos fast and furious, with that country feel. In Sunday's "America the Tubaful" concert, it was — you guessed it — dueling tubas. Tubas big and fat sounding, with a comedic vibe. Playing a tuba-fied version of the 1972 film's most famous scene was how Gene Pokorny made his big entrance in the tuba-filled, sold-out Laguna Concert Band performance at the Laguna Playhouse. The principal tuba for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra — one of America's finest tuba players in one of America's finest orchestras — played on his tuba snippets reminiscent of the film's banjo duet, to which fellow tuba player Charlie Warren responded.

Like any dance professional, Jodie Gates is a master of the art of spotting. When a dancer uses the technique, they visually fix upon a single point in the distance and keep their eyes set on it, as they undergo what seems to be a dizzying number of turns and spins. The result, after careful practice, is perfect control and execution - and the ability to end up exactly where one plans to go. Gates, the founder and artistic director of the Laguna Dance Festival, used the technique on stage in her past as a lauded ballerina and continues to do so today; both in her dance teaching career at UCI and in her business role leading the festival.

CORONA DEL MAR — The referee on the floor said he knew who was going to win the Corona del Mar-Laguna Beach high school rivalry match. Before the girls' volleyball match went to a decisive fifth set, the referee said the side that received at the start went on to win the first four sets. He did not understand why CdM chose to serve in the final set. He forgot about the Sea Kings' home-court edge Tuesday night. After losing the previous set pretty badly, the Sea Kings forgot all about it and regrouped.
