Have you experienced that much ballyhooed new car smell? As surfers we have something similar called the ?new board smell.? It must have to do with all the potentially epic moments that these new toys embody. Oh, the positions we want to ride these new boards on waves, places never before seen by human eyes. These boards will change lives, we think, most notably our own. Back to reality. Unfortunately, purchasing a new board has fallen down my list of ?essentials? due to the current economic challenges, so I thought I would look at how to keep the quiver I currently have ready for active duty.

The Sawdust Art Festival names board Rebecca Meekma released that the Sawdust recently held elections for its 2002-03 Board of Directors.

For incoming Board of Education President Ketta Brown, Laguna Beach schools aren’t just a place for learning: They’re a place for caring. The three-year board member was named to the position in early December, replacing Jan Vickers. The yearlong term will require Brown to run board meetings, set agendas and act as the spokeswoman on behalf of the board, which should make for some entertaining meetings since she is known for her bubbly personality and quick wit. The 20-year Laguna resident and mother of three, who has long been involved in the district since her kids all attend schools in town, said she has held nearly every elected PTA position possible at Top of the World Elementary, Thurston Middle and Laguna Beach High Schools, and PTA Council prior to joining the board three years ago. “The most rewarding thing has been to see the district moving with such momentum toward a truly great education for the majority of our students; things don’t move quickly in education, but we have probably beaten the odds there a bit,” she said.
