Harrison Milanian trekked through the Mohave Desert for five days in 130-degree heat. Coyotes urinated on his tent while he tried to sleep in the Florida woods. He walked three miles through a thunderstorm. The 22-year-old Tampa, Fla., resident persevered through all those events and ended his nearly three-month cross-country walk Sunday at Main Beach in Laguna Beach. Wearing a sign that displayed his Facebook page address, americaonfoot , Milanian strolled barefoot south along Broadway Street, crossed Coast Highway and walked across the sand toward the ocean.

The Laguna Beach Recreation Committee has in its sights a new spot for a skate park — Aliso Beach Park. The committee discussed the option at its regular meeting Monday night at the Susi Q Senior Center. Committee chairman Jim Howard said he drove around Laguna Beach eyeing potential sites for a skate park, an idea discussed for about 20 years, and came upon a plot across South Coast Highway from the county-owned beach and parking lot. The street would block some of the skate park-generated noise, according to Howard.

No one likes to admit they have a dark side. But like alter egos, the alleys of Laguna Beach parallel our lives. We rely on them for privacy. We use them as shortcuts. We park in them illegally. Both in residential and business areas, there are an impressive amount of alleys in Laguna - all underutilized and most in disarray. But there are some really cool ones too. With a few exceptions, almost anywhere you live in the city - north, south or downtown - you have alleys nearby.

As I write this column the fog is rolling in deep and I'm listening to Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood crush a version of "Voodoo Child. " There's a full gospel chorus behind Clapton's wailing guitar. It's "Blues On The Beach" Friday night at KX93.5 FM, and I've got it turned way up - and just right. By now you know about Laguna's start-up radio revolution, or your head is in the trees that block everyone's view. Six months in and these guys have built an independent radio model from the ground up that doesn't answer to corporate suits, where they actually play artists that aren't dumbed down and force fed from the major labels.

I moved to Laguna Beach when I was 25. That was in 1962. I have pedaled its streets ever since then, including the 37 years I worked at Laguna Beach High School when I lived in upper Bluebird Canyon. Four years ago I volunteered to serve on the City Council-appointed Complete Streets Task Force. I was anxious to make a difference in how our town would encourage alternative means of transportation, given what I thought was always a forward-looking and environmentally-positive city philosophy, as well as a place that was becoming glutted by automobiles.
