High waves and a strong surge over the weekend resulted in a number of rescues in Laguna Beach, including one fisherman who nearly drowned after he was swept off of rocks at Crescent Bay beach Feb. 24. The waves were so strong they were reported breaking over the parking lot at Aliso Beach at 9:50 that night. The fisherman, a 54-year-old Arizona man, was pulled several hundred yards out to sea at 4:42 p.m. and was rescued by two body-boarders from Murrietta, according to police records.

California Institute of Technology chemist and part-time Laguna Beach resident Peter Dervan was honored by President Bush last week at the White House, where he was awarded the National Medal of Science. Dervan, who spends some of his time away from his Caltech research lab in his home on Crescent Bay, was among the eight scientists who were presented with the medal for 2006. "It was a tremendous honor, kind of humbling really," Dervan said. Dervan wasn't informed he'd be receiving the award until early July so he and his family had to shuffle around vacation plans to make the White House ceremony.

Editor?s note: The following was addressed to Laguna Beach Interim Police Chief Paul Workman. ? As I am sure you are aware, there was a major deployment of rescue personnel and gear to Crescent Bay in the late afternoon of May 9 to locate a diver reported injured and missing (?Three pulled from ocean,? May 15). Fortunately, it was very much later learned that the diver had made his own way to South Coast Medical Center for treatment. Observation of this event as it unfolded directly in front of my home on Crescent Bay has raised some issues in my mind.

Just because the calendar says January doesn't mean beaches become desolate tracks of sand. Particularly in Laguna. The 58-degree ocean didn't deter swimmers, kayakers, paddle boarders or scuba divers from visiting last weekend and earlier this week - a balmy period with plenty of sunshine. Laguna Beach lifeguards operate year-round, and although the staffing isn't up to summertime numbers, marine safety personnel still keep a close watch on the intricate, craggy 5 1/2-mile coastline.

United opposition of divers and residents on Tuesday scuttled a proposal to close city beaches between 10 or 11 p.m. and 6 a.m. No one from the public spoke at the City Council meeting in favor of an agenda item sponsored by Mayor Kelly Boyd to direct staff to work up a curfew for North Laguna beaches, which he verbally expanded to include all city beaches bordered by residential neighborhoods. The audience in the Council Chambers stood and applauded when Boyd withdrew his recommendation.

Corbina is a tasty fish. Fillet it and cut it into strips, batter it and cook it in some oil and you got the best Mexican tacos ever. Sheeps Head is a tasty fish as well. Fillet this fish, add some butter, garlic and ground pepper and bake in the oven at 350 degrees. Tastes like lobster, only better. What do these two fish have in common? Yes, they are both white meat and no, you can't pick them up from the supermarket. You can get them from mother ocean right off Laguna Beach. Or shall I say "used to get them" from the ocean.
