Training, education and advance planning will make Laguna residents and their property less vulnerable to wildland fires, according to a Fire Department report to the City Council. The City Council approved at the May 4 meeting a request by newly appointed Fire Chief Chris Head for funding for biological studies of Arch Beach Heights in order to expand a fuel modification zone. Fuel modification is one of the major factors in the report Head presented to the council that dwelt on the importance of taking defensive action before wildland fires break out and to educate the public in their role in fire prevention.

Whew! There was more happening in Laguna last weekend than goes on in some months. Twelve special events were scheduled Saturday and Sunday — all of them for worthy causes, not to mention a lot of fun. The Community Picnic at Alta Laguna Park, organized by the Laguna Board of Realtors to raise the money to save the annual Fourth of July fireworks, was a rousing success. More than 350 people attended and enough money has been raised to ensure the patriotic pyrotechnics this year and get a good jump on funding for next year’s show.

Mayor Elizabeth Pearson is the first City Council candidate out of the gate — with a Kentucky Derby party Saturday to kick off her reelection campaign. “The most important thing for me is to maintain the high level of service and the quality of life to which our residents are accustomed,” Pearson said. “We need to stay the course.” Pearson, whose track record after two terms on the council is an open book, will present her platform at the event.

Thursday is the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, a worldwide holiday founded by Sen. Gaylord Nelson as an environmental teach-in, to inspire awareness and respect for the Earth. As global climate change threatens natural resources and biodiversity, a switch to a more eco-conscious, sustainable and healthy way of living is more vital than ever, according to supporters. To commemorate the day, environmental groups and activists throughout Laguna Beach will hold events to educate the community, host clean-ups and other activities.
