It's easy to tune out traffic on Pacific Coast Highway, but as Kent Kelley stands on the sidewalk before the address that once housed Mystic Arts World, the sound of passing wheels has a way of underlining the conversation. Maybe that's because it signifies moving forward - briskly, unsentimentally - and Kelley's words have the same effect. The building at 670 S. Coast Hwy. played a major role in Laguna Beach hippie culture during the 1960s, a period that's inspired no small amount of mythology.

The Laguna Beach Recreation Committee has in its sights a new spot for a skate park — Aliso Beach Park. The committee discussed the option at its regular meeting Monday night at the Susi Q Senior Center. Committee chairman Jim Howard said he drove around Laguna Beach eyeing potential sites for a skate park, an idea discussed for about 20 years, and came upon a plot across South Coast Highway from the county-owned beach and parking lot. The street would block some of the skate park-generated noise, according to Howard.

It's not every day that people get the chance to do something creative that they're not only passionate about, but also pays their bills. Toes on the Nose window dresser Sydney Hensler says she got lucky. "It's something I never expected to do, but it totally fits me in a weird way," the Newport Beach resident said. "I really enjoy doing it, and I really enjoy doing it in Laguna Beach because I feel like it's a community that appreciates it. " Hensler, 28, was working at Toes on the Nose in downtown Laguna about two years ago when she was asked to try her hand at the storefront windows that face South Coast Highway.

Executive Director Joey DePinto moved to Laguna six years ago and thought the quiet town would be the ideal location for his latest suspense movie, which centers around a girl who grapples with the murder of her twin sister.
