We would like to take this opportunity to express our concern over a photograph of environmental videographer Earl Richmond holding a Pacific harbor seal pup that was published in the Jan. 27 edition of the Coastline Pilot. Although we are not aware of the circumstances under which the photograph was taken, we must discourage the general public from seeking out similar photo opportunities. Marine mammals are protected under federal law and it is always a source of concern to us when we see photographs such as this that may encourage the public to pick up or otherwise disturb one of these protected animals.

Lauren Vane Tommy the sea lion likes to show off when visitors come to see him. He splashes around, in and out of his small pool, and presses his face against the fence of his pen at the Pacific Marine Mammal Center in Laguna Beach. Tommy arrived at the center when he was abandoned shortly after he was born -- about seven months ago. Since then, Tommy has been living at the center, where he has been hand-reared and nursed by staff and volunteers.

CHERRIL DOTY "So, it comes first: the world. Then, literature. And then, what one pencil moving over a thousand miles of paper can (perhaps, sometimes) do." -- MARY OLIVER, Blue Pastures "What can I do to help?" Many of us want to do what we can to make the world a better place to live. We just don't know what to do, or we become overwhelmed by the size of the task. Knowledge is definitely the key. My hope in writing this is that I can prod each of you down the path of that knowledge, that we may all put the world first.

EYE ON ARTS AND ENTERTAINMENT Every week I get quite a few calls from local artists or people drop by the Coastline Pilot office and suggest that I do a story on them. Believe me it's hard to decide what we are going to run each week. There are so many amazing artists, accomplishments, gallery openings, artist receptions and events that it would be nice to write stories about everything. But we can't or it would be one big happenings section with no room for other news like City Council meetings or the Laguna Canyon Conservancy's next meeting.
