A few weeks ago, we dined at a very exclusive Laguna restaurant. It is so exclusive that it opens only 10 days a year. In their eagerness to eat here, diners are willing to be seated communally or even to eat in the pantry. What is this secret gastro-temple and how can you get a reservation? This is the Pro-Chef dinner at Laguna Culinary Arts, prepared and presented by the graduating class of eight students, after six months of intensive study. For five nights, twice a year, everything these students have learned comes together in a real restaurant situation.

EYE ON ARTS AND ENTERTAINMENT It was great to have the long weekend to celebrate Valentine's Day, President's Day -- also my birthday and to be able to spend it with my parents, who are visiting from out of state, and friends. That's what it's all about. Amid the good times I experienced one of the scariest things ever last weekend, which intensified my gratitude for what I have.

I have lots of privileges because I live in the United States. Freedom of speech in the U.S.A. is great! I have the power to tell our president I don't like something. I have freedom to be whom I want to be when I grow up. I can work hard to earn money for my savings. My friends and I can vote when we are 18. In the U.S.A., we have the right for a good education. In the Community Learning Center, I get to study United States, go to class with third- and fourth-graders and go on lots of field trips.
