Honors are certainly due to Elizabeth Pearson ? and to Laguna Beach Seniors Inc. Without them, the city would not only probably not have a Susi Q Senior Center, but might not have a community center, either. Pearson was feted Saturday in grand style at the seniors? annual Legacy Ball. This has become one of the really grand events in Laguna Beach, with participants glamming it up in vintage ball gowns and heritage jewelry. Pearson must be especially pleased that she is the first Legacy recipient to be honored following the opening of the Susi Q Center earlier this year.

Laguna Beach Relief and Resource Center supporters breathed a sigh of relief Tuesday when the City Council agreed to loan the group money for a down payment on a permanent site. The council voted 4-0 on Tuesday to lend the center $100,000, pending approval of a conditional use permit. The loan will be interest free, due and payable if the property is sold or the use changes. “We hope we can repay you, not just in money, but in saved lives,” said center board member Arnold Hano.

If compliments were currency, a lot of people would have been richer by far when they left the dedication of the Nix Nature Center on Saturday. Speakers praised everyone connected to the fundraising, design and construction of the 2,000-square foot center — especially Rosemary and James Nix , who donated the seed money for the $3.4-million project. "They say a little bit of money goes a long way, but I never thought $500,000 could do so much," James Nix said.

Laguna Beach artist Jon Seeman is taking another shot at getting his metal sculpture of a whale put in the spot it was designed for — in front of the soon-to-be-opened community/senior center on Third Street. The new facility will have its grand opening from noon to 3 p.m. Jan. 31. Workers are scurrying about putting in plants and final touches for the 20,000-square-foot facility, which will house the city’s recreational classes and the Susi Q Senior Center. Lacking will be an art component on the site, which is not only required by the city’s Art in Public Places program, but is, to Seeman, an essential element of the project.

Councilwoman Toni Iseman brokered a deal Jan. 8 that broke up the threat of a no-vote for the proposed plans for a new outreach facility at St. Mary’s Episcopal Church. The church wants to demolish the old Guild Hall and construct a new community outreach facility on the church property at 428 Park Ave., as approved by the Planning Commission on Dec. 5, 2006, subject to conditions. But the approved plan wiped out neighbor Ron Kaufman’s ocean view. The church subsequently was required to redesign the facility to increase their neighbor’s view.

The donations will be posted on the Internet auction site e-Bay starting May 16. "Seniors are the fastest growing segment of users on the Internet," said Skipper Lynn, president of Laguna Beach Seniors. "It was a natural approach for us to consider the web in our overall fund-raising effort for the new Center."
