If you?ve ever eaten a snickerdoodle or a Death By Chocolate brownie at any of the coffee shops or cafés in town, it probably was delivered that morning by Jan Fabrik. How did a little girl from Nebraska grow up to become the cookie queen of Laguna Beach? The owner of the Gecko Cookie Company began baking when she was 3, standing on a stepstool in the family kitchen and learning the basics from her mother and grandmother. She was taught old Midwestern recipes that had been passed down for generations.

Laguna Beach Girl Scouts from Troop 145 are racing to sell as many cookies as they can using the "Care to Share" program, in an effort to make a San Francisco trip in the spring. The "Care to Share" program allows people to buy cookies for U.S. soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. They can also purchase cookies for seniors in nursing homes. Girl Scout Olivia Jenkins, 11, said she thinks the program is a neat alternative for Laguna Beach cookie buyers. "It's cool because you actually get to help people that don't get the cookies at the cookie times," she said.

The Girl Scouts were selling cookies outside a store the other day and I got three boxes of the Thin Mints. Now that's restraint. I have considerable cookie experience, as befits a man of my years. You have little to teach me about butter cookies, chocolate chip, the Pepperidge Farm varieties, vanilla wafers, peanut butter cookies, ginger snaps, Oreos, sugar cookies, macaroons or Lorna Doones. But even as a boy I knew that Thin Mints were not just the best Girl Scout cookies — they were the best cookies anywhere.

Many residents were shocked and dismayed last week to learn that Goko was being replaced by the formula-based, assembly-line style Quiznos. Most of us assumed our city policies prevented such a clear departure from our focus on village character and resident serving businesses. A closer look revealed that our Downtown Specific Plan, which prevents franchises such as this, extends only to Legion Street, leaving a great deal more of our beloved village susceptible to the type of homogenization and diminishment of village character embodied by franchise chains like Quiznos.

Cookies a welcome bright spot overseas It was a hot, 125-degree Saturday afternoon, two months into the liberation of Iraq, when the chaplain came into the medical tent asking, "who wants Girl Scout cookies?" The medical clinic had about 20 people working in it at the time, a few people looked up but said nothing. Disbelievingly, I chimed in, "I do. Ya got any shortbreads?" The chaplain's response, as he reached into a beat-up cardboard box: "You get my last one." Within minutes the chaplain and his assistant were handing all sorts of cookies to the weary medics.
