With all due respect to members of the Laguna Beach City Council and their proclamations for what they want to accomplish in 2014, here are some of mine: 10.) A well-lighted, sensuous, groovy, late-night lounge with sofas and chill house music in which adults over 30 can hang out after dinner and have conversations without shouting. Will one of you local restaurant/nightlife mavens please do this, already? You'd kill. 9.) More ad copy like this one for RocknFish's $5 Navy Grog: "Our signature cocktail will be sure to knock your socks off, and if you have one too many perhaps you off your bar stool.

As a long time resident of Laguna Beach I think the concern over the Village Entrance design is valid. Our town is made of legacies. We have Main Beach, the Laguna greenbelt, festivals and much more. What we do not have, unlike other great towns, is an arboretum to display our special world. The Village Entrance space is invaluable. Let's put a long-lasting invaluable arboretum there where it should be. It can totally incorporate anything we need — recreation, art displays, cleansing flora, public events, parking and farmers markets.

Last month's march against bullying by a group of San Clemente High School students near Main Beach was as much a visible reminder of this type of harassment and its severe consequences as it was a call to eradicate it from society. And as recent allegations of bullying between two Miami Dolphins players reveal, bullying can occur between people of any age. Laguna Beach Unified school officials take bullying seriously and employ many strategies to nip the offense in the bud. Communication among teachers, aides and staff is critical to halt bullying in its tracks, according to Thurston Middle School Principal Jenny Salberg.

A group of mostly San Clemente High School students received affirmative honks and the occasional "woo-hoo" late Friday afternoon in Laguna Beach as they protested bullying. Members of the Cool 2 Be Kind Club stood in a line along Coast Highway at Main Beach holding signs that read "No Reason To Be Mean," "For Those Who Don't Have a Voice" and "End the Hate. " The group hoped to raise awareness of an issue that National Assn. of People Against Bullying board member Dezra Anderson said has expanded beyond the schoolyard.

High above the Pacific Ocean, a wooden railing juts out of the mountainside, bearing testimony to lovers past and present. Dates, names and hearts have been carved into a long-lasting potpourri of amour. It was here that Jose Ruiz and Amayrani Figueroa's eight-year relationship took an unexpected turn Sunday - well, unexpected at least for one of them. The Riverside duo arrived at Main Beach at 11 a.m. to compete in the Laguna Beach Art Adventure. They weren't crowned victors of the three-hour scavenger hunt, but Figueroa walked away with spoils of her own - a 2-carat diamond ring, to be exact.
