WHAT'S SO FUNNY "The world is so full of a number of things I'm sure we should all be as happy as -- but are we?" -- Donald O'Connor, "Singin' in the Rain" Every year or two we get a visit from our friends Joe and Marie Martin and I realize I don't deserve to live here. Joe Martin, a nationally syndicated cartoonist ("Willy 'n Ethel," "Mr. Boffo," etc.), is a native of the Midwest. For more than 20 years, he and his wife, Marie, have hoped to own a home in Laguna Beach.

HUNTINGTON BEACH — During a quick burst at the outset of the second half of their nonleague girls' basketball game Thursday at Ocean View, it appeared that the Laguna Beach Breakers were headed toward an easy victory. A 90-second run turned a close game into an 11-point advantage for the Breakers who were all but taking command at that point. But after leading, 31-20, early in the third quarter, it went all downhill for Laguna which went on to suffer a 50-38 defeat. The Breakers couldn't sustain that lead, nor their momentum, in the final 14:30 of the game.

Mike Sciacca Laguna Beach high's football team will look to win its third consecutive game of the year when it travels to Newport Harbor High Saturday to take on host Costa Mesa. Kickoff is 7 p.m. at Davidson Field. The game is Laguna's first road test of the season. Laguna (2-1) has won two straight since dropping its season opener Sept. 3 to Palos Verdes. In the past two weeks, the Breakers weren't challenged by La Quinta or Ocean View, which fell by scores of 38-12 and 48-13, respectively.

The Laguna Beach High School football team experienced its first bump in the road of the 2005 season when it played host Ocean View to a tie last week. Tonight, the Costa Mesa Mustangs invade Guyer Field for a 7 p.m. nonleague matchup. The Mustangs, however, aren't galloping south -- the team is limping after opening the season with lopsided losses to Brea, Corona del Mar and Huntington Beach. Last year, Laguna edged Costa Mesa, 10-9. The Breakers bring a 2-0-1 record into tonight's meeting.

Ed Todeschini I just read the article about RAVE (Restore All View Equities), the Laguna Group who plans to draft a ballot initiative that would allow trees to be cut down if they blocked views. This self-described "bulletproof, no gray area" approach may work in a new gated coastal subdivision, but it is this kind of thinking that continues to threaten the balanced quality of life here in Laguna Beach. I recognize that there are extreme situations where an irresponsible neighbor with a large tree or shrub does not try to find a middle ground solution with a view-blocked neighbor.

A Laguna Beach City Council subcommittee appointed to craft an ordinance dealing with view loss has been meeting since February and was still hearing passionate arguments at a meeting Tuesday. The subcommittee has the job of creating the ordinance without raising the hackles of environmentalists and property rights advocates, about 70 of whom showed up for the meeting in the council chambers. Among the questions being asked and sometimes vociferously answered: What views should be protected, all or only those from ceremonial rooms?

Interests of silent majority need to be heard Regarding the proposed view ordinance: I moved to Laguna Beach 26 years ago, lured by the overall striking beauty and nonconformity of the city. Surrounding cities, to me, were too uniform and manicured. I bought a house in South Laguna in large part because of the large pine tree in the front yard and a good view of the ocean. I think it's crazy that someone can buy a house behind me tomorrow, fully aware of my tree and its size, and demand that I remove it or prune it to roof level.

I strongly support the city's recent attempt to strengthen the view ordinance, as announced in your paper. At the same time, I think the city administration needs to get behind it and begin to support its intent. It often does not. Last fall my neighbor lost a third of white water view — a view he has had and worked to preserve during the last 20 years — all due to a remodel on the street below him. Over 20 years ago he purchased his double lot and bought the double lot below him. He picked the perfect spot on his lot for a white water view and built his house on it. He then built a spec house on the lot in front of him with a roof line that did not block any of his view.

If two Laguna Beach residents meet, they will ask, "What part of Laguna do you live in?" North or south? Emerald Bay or Three Arch Bay? The Village or Woods Cove? It's not enough that we live in Laguna Beach — we have to know where. It's the way we define our lives and express a quality of life without having to explain it. It's in our DNA. Since the beginning of time, we've been tribal. We call ourselves "the people of the mountains" or "the brave people" or, in the case of Laguna, "the people who can't fish.

I must say, David Hansen, that your recent column was quite confusing. (Re. "Canyon is its own world," Sept. 30) I am a bona fide canyon kid and have called it my home for 22 years. Laguna Canyon is the only home I have ever known. Your column pulled together random aspects about the canyon community while drawing similarities to a conglomeration of mostly negative stereotypical images of America. Assuming that you've never been a resident of the Laguna Canyon and seeing as I have been one all my life, allow me to clear up your fear-driven impressions of this rarity.

Talk about running roughshod. The start to the 2011 prep football season couldn't have gotten off to a better start for Laguna Beach High and first-year Coach Mike Churchill. A 55-7 victory Sept. 9 against Webb of Claremont contained plenty of superlatives that could set the tone for the Breakers the remainder of the year. All the Breakers did was wreak havoc on the school's football record book. The marks that fell or were tied were: • Most rushing yards in a single game: (579; old record: 443 set in 2009)

A vacation in coastal Orange County doesn't have to be at a five-star hotel. For as little as $50 a night, one can have an ocean view and a walk to the beach with the opening of the Moro Campgrounds on Friday. The 35-acre property in Crystal Cove State Park has 60 campsites, 30 of which have hook-ups providing electricity and water. Hook-up spots cost about $65 per night. The entire Moro Canyon area redevelopment project near the edges of Newport Coast and Laguna Beach is estimated to cost $15 million.

City officials celebrated the completion of the Heisler Park renovations with a traditional ribbon cutting June 10. The ceremony took place in front of the newly constructed amphitheater, a centerpiece of the final phase of renovations funded by $7.5 million from grants and city funds. "Grants are important," Mayor Toni Iseman said. "They made this possible. " Orange County Integrated Regional Water Quality Management funded an $800,000 grant, and the state Water Resources Control Board put in $1 million from the Clean Beaches Initiative fund and another $1.8 million for the protection of the park's "area of special biological significance.
