Mike Sciacca, Coastline Any time Laguna Beach High takes on archrival Corona del Mar in boys' volleyball, it's considered a big match. But, when you add to the mix that the winner possibly could stay in contention for a portion of the Pacific League title, then the match takes on even greater significance. Such is the case tonight when Laguna Beach and Corona del Mar go at it for the third time this season, this time on the Artists' home floor before what promises to be a boisterous crowd.

LAGUNA BEACH ? Lance Stewart paced the sideline Tuesday night, like a basketball coach. He could have been another linesman, but thankfully that wasn?t needed in the nonleague girls? volleyball match between his Laguna Beach High squad and his former team, Corona del Mar. ?It?s a new rule this year,? Stewart said. ?Like just about every other sport in the world, the coaches are finally allowed to stand up. For me, who tends to get excited sometimes, it actually helps calm me.?

Laguna Beach, meet Corona del Mar. Not many introductions will be needed at 7 tonight when the Breakers kick off their 2009 football season by hosting the Sea Kings. The former Pacific Coast League rivals also met twice last season, although those are games the Breakers might like to forget. They didn?t score in either game, falling, 37-0, in their second game of the season and 41-0 to end their season in the second round of the CIF Southern Section Southern Division playoffs.

The big match turned into a big mismatch. An impressive Laguna Beach pregame warm-up prior to the start of Saturday's CIF-Southern Section Division II-AA girls' volleyball championship match against long-standing rival Corona del Mar had Breakers Coach Lance Stewart feeling pretty confident about his squad's chances against the Sea Kings. "It was the best we've had in my four years here," Stewart said of his team's pre-match ritual. "We were hitting the ball, moving around nicely and had a bounce in our step.

Traditionally, Laguna Beach and Corona del Mar don't meet on the football field until somewhere at or beyond the midway point of the 10-week regular season. That's the way it's been for the past seven years, a period in which both schools have been members of the Pacific Coast League. But beginning with the 2006-07 school year, Laguna has moved on to the new Orange Coast League, while Corona del Mar has remained in the revamped PCL. The rivalry, however, continues, as the teams battle tonight — this time, in nonleague play — at Newport Harbor High's Davidson Field.

If you ask poet John Gardiner a question, the path to the answer is not a straight line. It's a meandering journey that transports you to mysterious places and events that seem surreal at first, as if you've gone down some rabbit hole. Where else can you rub the belly of a coyote? Or hear Shakespeare reincarnated? Or use words to stop bullets? Gardiner, 67, is Laguna Beach's resident poet, dramatist, teacher, activist and psychedelic historian. In 1969 he read one of his first poems at Mystic Arts in Laguna, and 45 years later, at 7 p.m. Friday, he will read it again, commemorating an anniversary of sorts.

John O'Hara has encountered many things in his 34 years with Laguna Beach's Public Works department, some more grotesque than others. About 10 years ago, O'Hara found the body of a dead woman with a plastic bag tied around her neck in the bushes of Laguna Canyon. "I never had the [police] respond so quickly. They were there in three minutes," said O'Hara, who will retire as maintenance lead worker after his shift Sunday. Most days he canvasses beaches, streets and parks, emptying trash cans and collecting loose debris from the sand.

A sluggish start to Wednesday's opener at the Estancia Coast Classic couldn't deter the Laguna Beach High boys' basketball team from opening the tournament with a big win. The Breakers began to pull away from Newport Harbor in the second half at Estancia High, and went on to claim a 59-45 victory over the Sailors. The win moved Laguna to 9-5 overall and came on the heels of an impressive, double-digit win Saturday over Corona del Mar. "I don't think either team played well at the start," Laguna Coach Bret Fleming said.
