The City Council is looking for a more gracious treatment of drivers who overstay their time limits at meters and city parking lots. Mayor Pro Tem Elizabeth Pearson proposed Tuesday a grace period of five minutes per paid hour on the meters and city parking lot machines, with a goal of reducing the rancor and complaints from drivers who are ticketed. “We are always hearing, ‘I was just two minutes late,’ and ‘I am never coming to Laguna Beach again’,” Pearson said.

A pilot program that would limit parking on some city streets and restrict access to wilderness parks during periods of high fire danger won unanimous Laguna Beach City Council support Jan. 21. The council adopted three recommendations from the city's Emergency/Disaster Preparedness Committee that would improve first-responder access in potential fire zones. Council members gave the OK for the fire department to hold at least one public meeting and gather feedback from residents in the Diamond/Crestview area about limiting parking on certain streets during high fire-danger periods, known as red-flag days.

Titles came in the form of the team boys' shortboard championship, as well as the boys' individual shortboard crown, scored by junior Brad Burdick.

Lauren Vane The residents of El Morro trailer park will ring in the new year with moving vans unless the lease agreement can be renewed or residents sign a three-month extension that will cost them $3,000. On Dec. 16 an Orange County Superior Court Judge gave a final ruling that determined that the state can allow the leases of El Morro tenants to expire. The state has extended an offer to residents that would allow them to remain on the property until March 31, if they sign up by Jan. 14. For those residents who do not sign the extension, the state will begin the eviction process on Jan. 17. Gerald Klein, the attorney who is representing a group of El Morro tenants, said on Wednesday that he filed for an appeal and hopes the court will agree to hear the case before the residents are required to leave.

Barbara Diamond City officials are considering an ordinance to root out problems in the sewer system -- at the expense of private property owners. The council gave five nods on Tuesday -- but did not vote -- for an "awareness program" to make private property owners aware of deficiencies in the laterals -- the pipes from kitchens, bathrooms and laundries to the city mains. Council members also reached consensus on a fine schedule for negligent disregard of the notifications that causes spills, and a requirement to videotape and report on the condition of laterals in remodels that must have design review.

Tom Titus The way things are going, the Laguna Playhouse probably should have scheduled its "dark night" production of "Late Nite Catechism" as a regular entry on the production schedule. Back in September, the theater brought the hilarious piece of nunsense (sorry, that's another show) in to fill in the week's empty space on Monday nights when the "Harvey" cast took a breather. The one-woman show seemed perfect as a dark night filler, but word got around quickly that this was an attraction not to be missed.
