Turquoise sea glass. A found treasure that carried me into the day. The sea glass, smoothly polished and paled to the lightest of blues, was lodged next to a rock on the beach. I slipped it like a jewel into the palm of my hand, rubbing its sand-tossed surface between my thumb and two fingers and wondered. How long it had been in the water? Where did it come from? Where did it start its journey? How long did it take to be transformed from a sharply edged broken piece to its now rounded corners?

Evan Marmol Chris Rock awes us with his scintillating witticisms and charm in his latest film "Head of State." Wading through the argot, specifically the peculiar idioms that he coins, is the only effort required to enjoy this uproariously hilarious comedy. In our trying times this "Head of State" is a refreshingly unique perspective into the perplexing and tiresome world of politics. Chris Rock uses this government back drop to expose the pandering and demagoguery that has left the common man feeling alienated to the world of political discourse.

It's my opinion that those shots fired from roof tops in New Orleans were not aimed at the helicopters, but were simply trying to get their attention, since they had passed over them several times without seeing them. Sometimes I think the press, or some others, are trying to cause discourse between black and white people to stir things up and make a bigger story of it. I can tell you right now that all the people I talked to at church were very upset with the way things were being handled.

Attorney Jane Egly is making her second bid for a seat on the City Council. Egly came in third four years ago in a nine-horse race for two council seats, which were won by Cheryl Kinsman and Wayne Baglin. "I did not plan to run again, but I was asked to reconsider and I agreed because I believe Laguna is at a crossroads," Egly said. She said she would not run again in a letter published in a local paper in which she indicated she had no political motive for criticizing Councilman Wayne Baglin for accepting a commission from clients who sold property to the city.

The pendulum swung strongly in America on Tuesday, and Laguna Beach was no exception. It was a historic political season with the election of the first African-American president and Laguna Beach shared in the general elation felt by most, even those who did not vote for Barack Obama. It was also an election season with an unusual amount of bickering and downright nastiness from all sides. Candidates and their supporters seemed to be hot-tempered and uncivil; we saw and heard complaints about name-calling and anonymous accusations that didn?

Environmentalists thankful for Iseman Thanks to fellow “green guy” Mark Christy for his thoughtful letter in support of Toni Iseman’s environmental efforts. Many of us working to make an environmental difference, however modest, agree with Mark, and prefer to let our positive actions speak for our efforts. We’ve only begun in our endeavors to rally our community. In this New Year let us act more for our environment’s sake speaking only with eloquence to raise the level of discourse, as Iseman has clearly done through her years of public service in our city.

Win some, lose some. That's the message this week, with the refusal of the Coastal Commission to overturn city approvals of the "dip house," which will be built in a low-lying lot that residents say often has water running through it, and the City Council's rejection of a previously approved 8,000-square-foot-plus hillside residence. Why one project that was loudly criticized will be built, while another one that sailed through the design review board was assailed by the city manager as "against the city plan" is something of a mystery.

Vibrantly colored banners and echoes of prayers filled the Neighborhood Congregational Church on Wednesday with the arrival of Tibetan monks and the start of Tibet Cultural Week. Many parishioners fell into a meditative state as the Gaden Jangtse Tsawa monks recited prayers and chants while seated cross-legged on the floor of the church. Throughout the service they played long, flute-like instruments that bellowed in between chants. Scrolls with bright illustrations and an image of the Dalai Lama sat on the altar behind them.

Now that the city and the ACLU are involved in negotiations behind closed doors to try to resolve the lawsuit, a number of voices are being heard on both sides trying to shape the discussion (?Ordinance repealed,? Feb. 20). From the left, we hear entreaties to build facilities to feed, house and rehabilitate our homeless. From the right, we hear urgent calls for tough police action to enforce regulations concerning panhandling, vagrancy and sleeping on the beach. At the same time, economic conditions are deteriorating and unemployment is increasing rapidly reaching double digits in Southern California.
