During rough economic times you take on responsibilities you might have previously paid others to handle. A man used to bring a small crew on Wednesdays to trim and mow our yard, and we recently decided we couldn’t afford him for a while. Although it was a necessary budgetary move, I regretted dispensing with Mr. Lopez’s services, both because I like him and because I knew I was now, at least partly, Mr. Lopez. My history with the plant world is not a happy one. Plants don’t thrive under my — well, “care” is a strong word.

Last week, a group called the El Morro Village Community Assn. pitched a plan that would in essence give a reprieve to some 200 mobile home owners who reside on state beach park lands at El Moro Canyon. The plan, which counters those of state parks officials, would call for an increase in mobile home rents and some of that money, some $10 million, they say, would go toward refurbishing the historic cottages at Crystal Cove. Money gleaned from rents would be earmarked for affordable housing at El Moro and an RV camp next to El Morro Elementary School.

Cindy Frazier and Suzie Harrison While gay pride is celebrated in some Southern California cities with colorful parades and festivals, most of Laguna's gays and lesbians are quietly enjoying life in the place they consider to be paradise. There's a lot to be proud of, some say, but few want to shout about it. "It's a nonissue," said Frank Ricchiazzi, co-founder of Log Cabin Republicans, a group launched by gay Republicans in the 1970s to combat social conservatism.

CHERRIL DOTY The shrieking sound draws my attention skyward. Three large seagulls chase the smaller white tern. They are diving and swooping, staying right on his white tail as he attempts to elude them. The plump, tender morsel that dangles from his beak is the prize the gulls seem to be after. They want what he has. The metaphor doesn't escape me. I had been walking the shoreline pondering, among other things, the sight of still more story poles in my neighborhood.

CANARY ISLANDS The waves have been unbelievable, to say the least. Surfing a perfect breaking right wave, over a shallow jagged sharp reef, was the highlight of my day today and reminded me of just how special surfing is to the traveling surfer. Today's waves were about 6 to 8 feet, with some not very friendly locals who took a while to warm up to me. Nothing like good old fashioned localism in the form of scowling faces. I'm staying out of the main tourist sector of Tenerife, which is wonderful since the downtown tourist area is about as ugly a place as one can imagine ?

I read with interest Michael Hoag?s letter (?Why pave paradise in Laguna Beach?,? June 13) on how our city is now in the process of changing our building codes to make it possible to build larger buildings with larger parking lots. I?m sure The Athens Group and Montage Resort are both in full agreement that this will definitely improve our quality of life since parking cars is something Athens deals with a lot, but never successfully. On May 7, the city?s Community Planning Department sent Athens a letter advising them that its parking study for the proposed Aliso Project was still outstanding following many, many requests for its submittal.

It seems that summer has finally arrived and so have the tourists and the traffic. However, summer also brings the pleasures of alfresco dining. One of the nicer spots in town to have an airy repast or a breezy beverage is the Shebeen, the upstairs lounge at Mozambique. Climbing the stairs, you enter the lounge through the bar area where the scene begins early and live music adds to the merriment. The L-shaped Shebeen is really a large outdoor terrace with banquettes along the walls, tile floors and an adobe fireplace.

The Irvine Museum has opened an exhibition of paintings by California Impressionists that depict open air scenes from around a century ago, when the Golden State still was underdeveloped and uncrowded. The exhibit of 48 paintings by 28 artists has an environmentally friendly undertone and features works by men and women who painted in the Laguna Beach and Newport Beach areas, including Plein Air stylists Anna Hills, Guy Rose, William Wendt, Arthur Rider and Curtis Chamberlin. "A lot of that land is no longer open space," said Jean Stern, the museum's executive director.
