Karl Halili spent years devouring movies and television and hanging around Laguna Beach. And all he got out of it was a medal.

He, his girlfriend and another couple took first place in the Laguna Beach Art Adventure, a scavenger hunt of sorts in which teams compete to find landmarks around town. Unlike in a typical scavenger hunt, the participants don't get to take the items with them - they just have to locate and identify them from the clues given.

If a city is cultured and broad-shouldered, it welcomes a little criticism. A savvy city knows that nothing should be taken for granted because life does not stand still.

In a casual poll of three single women, I asked them to comment on the "men of Laguna Beach.
