Jeff Corwin has done television segments on sea lions before, but not like the one he just wrapped up earlier this week at Laguna Beach's Pacific Marine Mammal Center. "It's a perfect ocean mystery for us. It really is an ocean mystery," Corwin said Tuesday at the center, which has treated hundreds of malnourished and dehydrated sea lion pups this year. Corwin, the witty and funny TV producer and nature conservationist, helped feed, diagnose, evaluate and assist center personnel while crews filmed an episode for the third season of Emmy Award-nominated series "Ocean Mysteries with Jeff Corwin.

If you've seen the first two installments of "Late Nite Catechism" at the Laguna Playhouse and think you've been exposed to interactive theater -- well, as Al Jolson used to say, you ain't seen nothing yet. "Sister's Christmas Catechism," subtitled "The Mystery of the Magi's Gold," is the latest, and by far the most entertaining, of the triumvirate written by (and often featuring) Marypat Donovan. The one-woman show conducted by a rather stern nun has been convulsing Monday night audiences in Laguna over the past three seasons.

Andrew Edwards An advance preview for a new movie will include scenes of white water rafting, crocodiles and automatic weapons -- a typical Hollywood adventure, right? Wrong. The filmmakers behind this new film left studios behind to spend four months capturing an unprecedented expedition along Africa's Nile River. "Mystery of the Nile," will be the next project from Laguna Beach production company McGillivray-Freeman Films, who teamed up with Spanish production company Orbita Max to shoot what the filmmakers have called the first-ever journey from the Blue Nile's Ethiopian headwaters to the Mediterranean sea. "It's something that's never been done before," camera operator Brad Ohlund said.

Suzie, sometimes the world is so sad. 92-year-old Rose Everything is on its way to somewhere.... Everything George Malley in "Phenomenon." It could be all the gray, gloomy weather we're having. Perhaps it's the noise here in Bluebird Canyon that is wearing on my nerves. Could it be the shaking of my house as they work on the road? Even the raucous cawing of crows and cheeping of birds, which I usually love, has begun to annoy. A wracking cough that has depleted my usual energy is no help, either.

Twelve games into the 2012-13 season, and Laguna Beach High boys' basketball coach Bret Fleming says he's still mystified by his team. The Breakers have won seven of those 12 outings and most recently wrapped play Saturday at the Irvine World News/Gary Raya Classic. They started off dubiously at the tournament, losing consecutive games to Woodbridge (52-42) and Tesoro (60-52). They regrouped to defeat Esperanza (70-58) and Edison (60-54) in succession, but in the fifth-place game Saturday, lost, 54-45, to Northwood.

Not since Mel Brooks served up the movies of Alfred Hitchcock like so much chopped liver in "High Anxiety" has the master of suspense been more comically garroted than he is in "The 39 Steps," the latest attraction at the Laguna Playhouse. And, as he did with Brooks, Hitch probably would give a big thumbs up to "Steps" creator Patrick Barlow, if the master were still around to appreciate the tribute. Barlow even titles his farcical funfest "Alfred Hitchcock's The 39 Steps. " This four-character exercise in creative satire moves at the speed of a runaway train, so you may require a second viewing to fully appreciate it. To begin with, four actors portray all of the characters in Hitchcock's 1935 flick, which was made before he crossed the pond for "Rebecca" and stayed on, memorably.

Celebrations. Beatles, birthdays, Woodstock, summer’s end — August has been quite the month. The recent Beatles Day at the Sawdust Art Festival was a tremendous day, filled with music, laughter, and lots of people. One of those people is our fictitious artist from earlier in the summer. The last time we saw him was just before Fourth of July. He has been very busy all summer and we have not heard from him since. Evidently, hearing so much of the music in one day, in one place, has inspired our intrepid artist to show his face — or pen — once again.

It’s Christmas in Laguna Beach and this means it’s time again for that very funny nun to take the stage at Laguna Playhouse. And as always, audience members are part of the script. This year, playwright and performer Maripat Donovan explores her CSI side by staging a reenactment of the Nativity, with the help of her sometimes-reluctant but ever-game “students” — audience members who were informed they would earn a coveted Papal Indulgence by participating.
