The City Council has approved a partnership between Laguna Beach and local Little League to renovate baseball fields at Riddle Field and Alta Laguna Park in the next two months. The estimated cost for both fields is $33,000, with the league committed to paying $25,000, while the council's action - a 5-0 vote at its Jan. 7 meeting - allows the city to provide matching funds not to exceed $12,500, according to a city staff report. The league's board of directors in December approved renovations for both sites.

The Laguna Beach Unified School District board has unanimously voted for an architect to resume design plans for a tennis court renovation at Laguna Beach High School, even though cost estimates have almost doubled. District staff called a special board meeting Tuesday to gather feedback from the trustees and public on whether to proceed with plans for post-tension slabs on five of the six courts on Park Avenue across from the high school. Post-tension involves steel cables in a concrete slab being pulled to a certain degree to help prevent cracking and is more extensive than other options, including sandblasting and adding a synthetic surface.

Garrett Burk wasn't about to sit idle if it meant one less person would reach for a powerful painkiller or other drug that wasn't medically necessary.

Major League Baseball Charities, in cooperation with the Partnership at Drugfree.org, an organization dedicated to preventing teen drug and alcohol abuse, noticed Burk's efforts and rewarded him earlier this month.

It's a song Mike McCaffrey hopes will help to brand Laguna Beach in popular music, and Friday morning at the edge of a parking lot on Ocean Avenue, it had its first-ever public performance. With the driver's-side door of McCaffrey's black Ford Explorer open, the composer slipped a CD into the stereo and serenaded the audience - well, one reporter and one photographer - with a bouncy tune that sounded like a relic from the days of Irving Berlin. After an introduction of guitar, ukulele and swishing drums, a honey-smooth female voice began rhapsodizing about the charms of the seaside city: "Laguna, nestled by the sea / is softly calling you and me. " On the phrase "Lag uuuuu na," which rises and falls delicately, McCaffrey pantomimed the motion of fingers on a guitar.

Laguna Beach does not have to pay $1.9 million to attorneys for three men who sought to project anti-abortion messages around the city, a federal court has ruled. U.S. District Court Judge Cormac Carney denied a motion from Steve Klein, Howard Putnam and Glen Biondi that claimed the city owed them attorney fees, according to a Nov. 19 opinion issued in Santa Ana. The three men filed a complaint and applied for a temporary restraining order in December 2008 after the city denied their request for a permit to use amplified sound outside of Laguna Beach High School.
