Visitors to Laguna often see the migration of whales passing along the city's shores, but one whale moved from Third Street to Heisler Park. The City Council decided last year that the oceanfront park was a more appropriate site for a 16-foot-tall sculpture of a breaching whale than a busy downtown street. The sculpture will dedicated at 5 p.m., as a prelude to the Thursday Art Walk on July 7. "It's magnificent," said Arts Commission Chairwoman Mary Ferguson. "The installation of the sculpture standing alone at the base of the new amphitheater couldn't be better.

2005 was a year of ups and downs in Laguna Beach. Literally. The hillside that slid down into Bluebird Canyon in June is being shored up. However, the year began and ended on a high note. The Act V/Village Entrance/ Corporation Yard compromise reached by Mayor Elizabeth Pearson-Schneider and Councilwoman Toni Iseman set the tone for a sea change in council demeanor and accomplishments. The proposal, enthusiastically endorsed by the council, brought an end to the wrangling that had besmirched the image of civic leaders and divided community groups for more than a decade.

The City Council on Tuesday approved a compromise between an artist’s vision for a sculpture to honor a local surfing Mecca and the community’s point of view. Andrew Myers’ sculpture, which was recommended by the Arts Commission for installation in the center of the viewing platform above Brooks Street Beach, was relocated, reoriented and restricted to a bronze finish, as proposed by Councilman Kelly Boyd. “This doesn’t sound like a compromise to me,” Myers said.

Nobody ever said it was easy running a restaurant, but the saga of hush, which closed suddenly three weeks ago, is really no piece of cake. Belying its name, hush generated a lot of press almost from the beginning. The restaurant opened with a splash around Valentine's Day 2004 on South Coast Highway in a spot that had housed a much-admired Mark de Palma establishment. Hush had a lot to live up to, and it did. Owner Chuck Rock, a veteran in the restaurant business from as far afield as Aspen, Colo.

Mike Swanson The rains came in full force to Laguna Beach and the rest of Southern California on Christmas, and with more storms predicted in the coming weeks, Laguna officials are offering pointers to protect homes and the ocean. Water quality is always a major issue in Laguna, and the oceans are most at risk after a storm, said Rick Wilson, chairman of the Laguna Beach chapter of the Surfrider Foundation. "The city's mantra is, 'Nothing but rain in the storm drain,'" Wilson said.

Westminster has Little Saigon. Artesia has Little India. Even Anaheim got in the act by declaring a section of Brookhurst Street as Little Arabia. It's high time Laguna memorialized its very prominent South African community and officially declare itself Little Cape Town. It could be great for business. More people would see us as a smaller version of that gorgeous resort town on the tip of Africa's Southern Hemisphere, where the dramatic, rugged mountains cascade to the sea. Where there's great surf, amazing wilderness, plus Boervorst (farmer sausage)

CHASING DOWN THE MUSE Friends frequently label me a rebel, and they get no argument from my court. I constantly chase the edges of experience, not recklessly, but with a sense of pushing into territory that is new and exciting. And yet, grudgingly, a part of me dimly understands the rules and plods along behind them. This plodding part of my personality manifests when hiking well-traveled areas of our park systems. That said, I'll go cross country anytime the route warrants, but in most instances, I'm content to follow the footsteps of those before me, crisscrossing canyon walls and ravines in a measured fashion, stepping lightly in an effort to protect what little wilderness remains.

Editor's note: This is the first of a series of three columns to address the runoff problem, overwatering from irrigation and the transporting of fertilizers, pesticides and nutrients to the ocean. The city of Laguna Beach early this summer mailed a message about changes in lawn watering regulations and a request for help from all of us. Many Orange County cities are being directed by state regulatory agencies to no longer accept runoff from over-irrigation and land watering that drains to the storm drain systems, and the state is requiring cities to amend the municipal codes to prohibit runoff.

Water runoff issues affect us all When I ran for City Council a couple of years ago and knocked on doors to meet Laguna residents, the most common complaint I heard from parents was a concern about ocean water pollution. I heard pretty disturbing stories from some very angry parents about how kids had gotten sick while surfing or skim boarding and, as a result, were forbidden to play in the beach in their own back yard. As a result of this input, I educated myself on the subject.
