When Laguna Beach filmmaker Christine Fugate saw Donna Hilbert read her poems ?In Quintana Roo? and ?Grief Becomes Me? in 2004, she felt inspired to make a film about the author, who transformed her grief into hope. Hilbert?s husband, Larry, was killed by a drunken driver on an early-morning bicycle ride in 1998. ?When I heard her speak, I could just see the images of her poetry in my mind,? Fugate said. ?At that moment, I thought, ?Wow, I want to take her poems and turn them into movies.

" Never truer than last weekend. On Feb. 3, No Square Theatre presented a "reading" and singing of "My Funny Valentine," a musical by Chris Quilter at the Veteran's Memorial Center and No Square Theatre headquarters. On Saturday, folks had a choice: the second night of Quilter's play; a tribute to Toni Iseman as outgoing mayor coupled with a fundraiser for the Community Clinic and the Laguna Beach Woman's Club, where the event was held; or the annual Laguna Art Museum auction (see full story on page B1 )
