I 'm in love. Well, that's what I keep telling people when they ask how work is going. As some of you have probably noticed, we here at Times Community News launched a redesign of our six websites last week. The new Coastline Pilot site is sleeker and cleaner. The modules, or groupings of stories, are better organized. No more clicking through drop-down menus just to find the section you want. We also have better slideshow and video capabilities, just in time for graduation.

I read Monday in the L.A. Times that Gino Cimoli had died. Gino was the first major league player to bat on the West Coast when the Dodgers and Giants moved to California from New York in 1958. He wasn't the Dodgers usual lead-off batter, but Manager Walter Alston gave him the nod because he grew up in San Francisco, where the game was played. I was at the game. I sat in the stands watching the teams warm up in Seal Stadium, where minor league games had been played.

BARBARA DIAMOND It was civil war, not civility that reigned this year in Laguna Beach.

Choosing which side of the meeting room to sit on was like deciding which side of the aisle to sit at a Hatfield/McCoy wedding. The divide in the city culminated in a vitriolic election that poisoned personal, professional and official relationships.
