The Laguna Beach Resource Center, which assists the homeless and low-income families, is planning a fundraiser to support its new full-time case worker. Lisa Hall says she has been hired at the center in hopes of providing more in-depth services to Laguna Beach's homeless population. The May 12 benefit — a sale of boutique items at a local church — aims to enable the center to pay Hall's salary. Hall had volunteered at the center for two years before being hired on. She has worked in clinics for many years and was mentored by Kay Hough, who works with the homeless in Santa Ana. Hall greets her clients with firm hugs and warm words.

After 15 years on Ocean Avenue, Latitude 33 Bookshop is for sale. Owner Tom Ahern, 69, attributed the decision to his wife's mounting health problems. Ahern, a Newport Beach resident, bought the bookshop in 1996 — formerly the Readers Bookshop — and moved it downtown from the Collection on South Coast Highway. "I'm hoping that someone or group of individuals will feel strongly enough that we need a good bookstore in Laguna Beach and say, 'Yes, lets buy them out,'" he said.

Love it or not, Laguna needs to be left alone. The latest edition of the Laguna Beach Coastline Pilot posed two questions that, in my mind, are intrinsically intertwined: What is the richest part of Laguna's heritage? Have I been bothered by noise or parking from the Festival of Arts? There will no doubt be many personal answers to the first: The intimate coves and sandy beaches. The quaint cottages and village atmosphere. The special blend of traditional and modern architecture.

A suspected arson fire at the Laguna Beach United Methodist Church's cold weather shelter for the homeless has heightened concerns about Laguna's population of street-dwellers. The fire, in the church's multi-use room, caused at least $40,000 in damage and abruptly shuttered the shelter, which will be hosted at another local church until mid-March. The fire occurred Jan. 31 at about 3:30 p.m., after church employees and officials had left for the day, said Rev. Ginny Wheeler of the church.

Homeless should not be feared by the city We've been in Laguna 41 years and have seen all sorts of persons on our streets. In the '60s and '70s, many people who now complain of the homeless were then complaining of persons who didn't fit their personal image of what is "right." My husband taught sculpture for many years at Orange Coast College and his students for the most part looked to be the so-called hippy...actually the mode of style then. He would often remark on seeing a grungy-looking bunch, "Hey, that kid is a student of mine and a good kid."
