Every time Taylor Capretz unpacks from her summer trip, it's bittersweet. Not because she'll miss her friends at camp, tubing at the lake or a couple weeks in Cabo San Lucas. Taylor, 17, wishes she could stay longer in the places she visits - such as Nepal, Ghana and Brazil - where she volunteers for a month, aiming to learn more about the AIDS epidemic. It all started when she and her parents attended a RAND Corporation conference on women. One of the speakers had a statistic that alarmed her: AIDS was the No. 1 killer of women and children worldwide.

A delegation from the Laguna Beach Sister Cities Assn. recently returned from a visit to San Jose del Cabo with glowing reports about Laguna's newest sister city. Members of the delegation reported on their trip at the Dec. 4 City Council meeting. "Five years ago, we approached the council to request a sister cities relationship with Menton, France, which was granted," association President Karyn Philippsen said. "It has been a very, very successful relationship and earlier this year we came back to you and said, 'We'd like to try to do it again.'" With the participation of council members Jane Egly and Kelly Boyd, the association selection committee chose San Jose del Cabo - which is nothing like Cabo San Lucas, said Nancy Beverage, one of the six delegates who made the trip at their own expense.

Andrew Edwards New York City: It was a heck of a town this week for political junkies, protests and massive security measures. In the middle of it all was Laguna Beach Republican Frank Ricchiazzi, who headed to the Big Apple as a member of the California delegation. Ricchiazzi is a co-chair of the Laguna Beach Republicans, and is perhaps best known in political circles as a co-founder of the Log Cabin Republicans -- a group that represents gays and lesbians within the Grand Old Party.
