Andrew Edwards With little more than a week before the end of winter, the sounds of springtime are beginning to be heard throughout the city. As the weather warms up, sharp-eared Lagunans will be able to hear the sounds of songbirds, fun and games at the beach -- and construction crews tearing up the pavement Downtown. Work has already begun on a project to fix damaged sidewalks, repave streets and upgrade intersections in the Downtown area. Planners want the project completed before the summer tourist season is in full swing.

Shops and offices around the post office were ordered vacated and four people were decontaminated by firefighters, Laguna Beach Police Sgt. Darin Lenyi said.

All was normal Saturday morning in downtown Laguna Beach, after a "white powder" scare at the Laguna Beach Post Office proved to be unfounded.  A white, powdery substance on an envelope led to the evacuation of the Post Office on Forest Avenue shortly after 4 p.m. Friday. Shops and offices around the post office were ordered vacated and four people were decontaminated by firefighters, Laguna Beach Police Sgt. Darin Lenyi said. The shutdown lasted about six hours. "Tests were performed on the envelope to determine if there were any hazardous materials involved," Laguna Beach Police said in a written press statement.
