This past weekend I was made aware that the Laguna Beach Unified School District would not allow our students to see the message from the president to the nation?s school children on the opening day of school, as a result of all the manufactured controversy surrounding it. Apparently the board and superintendent had been inundated with letters of protest from ?outraged? parents, despite the fact that the president was encouraging children to aim high and take responsibility for their education.

The small seashell caught my eye on an otherwise flat shoreline. It's coral-colored ridges and dark grey-green back stood in stark contrast to the light-colored sand. In the predawn light, the beach was empty, and I consciously created a walking meditation. Each toe to heel motion was an act of grounding; each rise of foot, a lift toward heaven. This is what we do, I thought. We walk the earth, looking for answers to questions that never cease. I turn the shell in my hand, run my fingers over the tiny ridges of an opening.

Dr. Tari Lennon, discussion leader. ?But is it rational for educated adults to adhere to a religion as a ticket to heaven?? Attendees at Open Gatherings are invited to participate after Lennon?

Open Gatherings, an informal salon-style lecture followed by discussion, returns for a single evening at 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 5 at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, 429 Cypress Drive. The evening's topic is "What do a fossil fish, the Gospel of Judas, and InfoTech have in common ? and why should I care?" led by Rev. Tari Lennon. The discussion will interweave discussion about the new light recently shed on the Gospel of Judas; the evidence of evolution presented by Tiktaalik roseae, the recently discovered 375-million-year-old "missing link" fish; and the shift to information technology ?

With unprecedented news coverage of the war in Iraq on nearly every channel and antiwar protests and pro-war rallies on numerous street corners, schools are faced with a difficult situation. When and how should teachers and administrators talk to students about the war? In Laguna Beach, the district has taken a stance of "responsibility and objectivity" according to Asst. Supt. Steven Keller. He said district administrators have confidence in their teachers to engage in appropriate discussion of current events without allowing public opinion to invade.

Hana Gallego and Avia Meyers were only 4 years old in 2001. They barely remember 9/11, but their hearts go out to those who will never forget the day that terrorists crashed into the iconic American buildings. The Laguna Beach High School ninth-graders joined the throng who gathered Sunday at Monument Point to honor the heroes of that dreadful day and the resilience of the American spirit. The event was solemnized by the dedication of a sculpture — which contains two beams salvaged from the collapsed World Trade Center — and the raising of a flag that once flew over ground zero.

There is, and always has been, great professional difficulty for women artists. They aren't taken as seriously as men. Their work is undervalued, undershown, underreviewed and underappreciated. Women artists (artists who happen to be women) usually handle this problem in one of two ways, with very little space in between extremes. They may ignore it and paint "male" (i.e., traditional) subject matter, using traditional methods. Or they may choose to address the problem directly, by making their gender the subject matter of the art itself.

Assemblyman Tom Harman won by a slim 236 votes to become the Republican nominee for the 35th District State Senate seat. Less than 1% separated Harman from GOP opponent Diane Harkey, a Dana Point city councilwoman. A little more than 9,000 absentee ballots were counted Wednesday, and roughly 600 more provisional ballots were tallied Thursday to give Tom Harman what appears to be a win. Harkey said Thursday after the results were announced she will ask for a recount because the vote totals were so close.

CHASING DOWN THE MUSE Stand with me for a few moments on the bright side of the moon, and look back at earth. From a great enough distance, the borders between countries cannot be seen, and politics, war and disease do not exist. From a great enough distance, we are simply passengers on a beautiful blue planet, spinning in orbit around a glowing sun. From a distance, we are all the same, Homo sapiens inhabiting the planet earth. I'm romantic enough to believe that each of us should spend more time appreciating our humanity "from that distance," and rational enough to know that as we move closer to the surface, we've created quite a murky mess.
