One of the after-summer rituals that Californians have come to embrace is the annual Coastal Cleanup Day on the third Saturday in September. That’s when volunteers gather to pick up trash and debris left by beachgoers, and get the beaches in good condition for the rest of the year. The 23rd Annual California Coastal Cleanup Day is from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday. In Laguna Beach, Main Beach is the headquarters for the event, and four other beaches are highlighted here, under the able oversight of Clean Water Now and Roger Butow.

Volunteers clean up local beaches Teens and staff from the Boys & Girls Club of Laguna Beach teamed with local James Pribram, Hearts of Montage, Zero Trash and One World One Ocean to clean up local beaches Sept. 15 as part the California Coastal Cleanup day, according to a news release. About 70 volunteers participated. They started at the Montage Laguna Beach resort and spread out to surrounding beaches. Teens recorded items that were cleaned up and mostly recyclable, which they will send in to the Ocean Conservancy to become part of the Ocean Trash Index, which shows how much trash is found along coasts all over the world, the release said.

I rose early one morning to catch the colored light. That’s not quite true. I was already up, sleep-deprived and cranky. Wild horses had run the beach all night, and the dogs had never ceased their protective barking. Between the drip-drip of the broken toilet and the hoof beat/bark-bark it was a long and restless evening. As usual, the sunrise over Isla Carmen, just offshore from Loreto, washed away any signs of dismay. Red-orange colors flooded the sea’s surface and the early bird feeders skimmed the water and dove for tiny fish.

CATHARINE COOPER Politically, I'm aligning myself with the dolphins and the whales. They need me a great deal more than any of the political parties. In fact, they need me because of the political parties, because they are unable to speak -- at least in a language that we can understand -- for themselves. And the right, left and middle are too engaged in a battle for supremacy to currently notice what's just below the water's edge. It isn't just the dolphins and the whales who need my voice.

T he air is heavy and cool with June fog that's layered in along the coastline. Buster and I wander early before the dog police arrive to ticket us off the local sands. Small waves break the silence of the morning, and a tidal surge gently rolls over the reefs between Brooks and Cress streets. Even with the gray skies, I know that blue-green waters wait only for the sun to peak through the clouds to reveal themselves. A few fish dart; a pair of dolphin frolics. I stop and ponder the beauty around me. A tear snakes down my cheek.

If you haven?t seen ?An Empty Plate in the Café du Grand Boeuf? at the Laguna Playhouse, I urge you to do so. The playhouse?s aptly titled artistic director, Andrew Barnicle, selected and directs this delightful play by Michael Hollinger. The comedic actors each develop their character, and nothing is as it seems. There are numerous references to Ernest Hemingway and gourmet dishes and there?s the best bullfight sans bull you?ll ever see. We here in Laguna Beach are blessed to have an abundance of art within easy reach.

In the 1950s, when disposals were first coming on the market, Vogue magazine ran an ad showing a woman in a perky hat and white gloves holding a paper bag of garbage, captioned, "My dear, you were never meant to be a garbage collector." That rang my bell, but times have changed. The bell tolls now for thee and me to put on plastic gloves and collect the trash that pollutes our sandy shores and the ocean. On Saturday, more than 550 volunteers — children, women and men — participated in the annual California Coastal Cleanup Day and plucked 3,280 pounds of trash and 696 pounds of recyclables from the city beaches and Aliso Creek upstream.
