Mary A. Castillo "I hope that I end up moving back to Laguna and that it stays the way it is. I'm very concerned about the development at Crystal Cove and the area where the I-5 and 405 meet. When my grandma came to visit, she nearly cried when she saw that the strawberry patch and Christmas tree lot were gone." ASHLEY BURSON, 17 "I hope our country continues to take pride in ourselves after the events of Sept. 11th. We should never forget about it."

The Orange County Toy Collaborative Warehouse for Spark of Love, Toys for Tots, Operation Santa Claus and St. Vincent de Paul is working to complete requests for more than 350,000 toys this holiday season. Without a huge increase in donations, the warehouse will not be able to fill orders, leaving thousands of needy children in Orange County communities without a toy for the holidays. Toys are urgently needed for distribution on Sunday to the agencies. As of last week, the agency was 200,000 toys short.

?Come help trim the tree,? read the note from Lynn Brown. ?Three-thirty on Friday. I?ve got champagne and snacks.? Who could resist? This would be the second annual ?girl?s decorating event,? a carry over from the year before. Last December, we had delighted in the transformation of a naked tree into a shining jewel, nestled on the front porch of the Browns? South Laguna home. It was an experiment that worked: a Christmas tree, fragrant in the cool air, and a delightful greeter for friends and family.

The 125-year-old pepper tree in front of City Hall has undergone emergency surgery to halt decay. "We are trying to keep the tree as safe as possible as long as possible," said Vic Hillstead, city parks and building manager. The prognosis is not good, but the city has taken three cuttings from the tree, which have done rather well. "We just transplanted them into 29-gallon boxes," Hillstead said. The rootlings will be used to replace the revered tree in the event that it cannot be saved.

Suzie Harrison The holidays are a time for family to be together and celebrate. But when social differences of opinion surface, many gay couples can be forced into a harsh decision. "I know the conflict of spending time with the one you love and your family," Laguna resident Ryan Lenhart, 24, said. "The two have been mutually exclusive. I chose the boyfriend over the family. I wish it was different -- that it could be with my boyfriend and my family."

CATHARINE COOPER Seems as if the holiday spirit fully seeps into my system just about the time the cherished day arrives, and just as quickly fades from the scene. The flurry of parties, shopping and frantic decorating come to an abrupt halt. The time span between Halloween and Christmas seems ever shortened, and sadly the year moves toward its end. An early celebration dinner at my mother's house awakens cherished memories. I sit by the side of her Christmas tree, and suddenly, I am again 7 years old. I play with her collection of stuffed bears, while recollections of Christmas past flood my mind.

You never know what sticks with kids. It could be some random, unintentional comment — perhaps made in anger — that later you hear repeated not only word for word but with your own intonation, making you feel like the worst parent in the world. Then there is the orchestrated teaching, where you put a lot of thought and energy into it, only never to hear of it again. Last weekend's gun lesson was somewhere in the middle. I took my boys to the Victor Hugo Zayas exhibit at the Laguna Art Museum, which ends April 29. They thought it was pretty cool, sort of. You have to remember, they are 15, 13 and 10, raised on every type of virtual gun known to mankind.
