What can children in Laguna Beach teach children in Nepal about peace? Rosalind Russell, Laguna?s fondly named ?goat lady,? asked her teacher friends for help in designing a curriculum for the new school she helps fund in rural Nepal ? named, coincidentally, Top of the World School of Nepal. The Nepal school has more than 200 children between the ages of 7 and 18, and as many as 400 semi-literate adults, according to Russell. She requested ideas for teaching about peace that could be presented in 10 minutes or less.

Suzie Harrison The club was thumping last night as Laguna's Sir Adamsmasher, also know as KatoSpace, was throwing down a high-energy performance complete with all the toppings of premium octane music -- serving it up in a funky, eclectic, electronic platter of delicious tracks. Kato was giving out amplitude o' plenty at his pre-launch for Velcro Percolator -- a new monthly exploration in lo and hi fi audio and visual frontiers described as a convergence of glitch, electroclash, synth punk, acoustic jazz house, lounge and new discoveries at Costa Mesa's Detroit Bar, which he'll also create in Laguna.

It only takes a brief online search to reach an undeniable conclusion: Jack Tempchin is quite at peace with having written "Peaceful Easy Feeling. " The songwriter who penned the Eagles' 1972 hit posts on his website an image of the lyrics' original, handwritten draft - complete with notes in the upper-left corner indicative of a fledgling songwriter's bills, listing prices for paint, heat and electrical wiring. Another section of the website, titled "My Peaceful Easy Feeling," displays stories from fans about how the country-rock ballad affected their lives.

There are a few ramshackle stretches of Coast Highway in Laguna Beach cluttered with tired buildings and bad imagination. You become immune, driving by in a daze because there's nothing much to look at. But then you notice the curve. It's an organic, perfectly undulating S shape that takes your breath away. Located at 883 S. Coast Hwy., the building is the latest creation of Laguna architect Horst Noppenberger, and it will be the home to Obagi Skin Health Institute, set to open later this spring.

Dennis Piszkiewicz Saturday morning when I read the newspaper, I learned that, according to a Los Angeles Times Poll, a solid majority of Americans (58%) would support President Bush if he started a ground war against Iraq. I remembered that former Speaker of the House Tip O'Neill said, "All politics is local," and I wondered if my neighbors would agree with the majority as reported by The Times Poll. After putting away the paper, I went down to the peace vigil at Main Beach to take my own un-scientific poll of local opinion on war against Iraq.

When I'd think of Japan, I'd picture cherry blossoms, Buddhist pagodas, geisha and what was probably the most delectable sushi on the planet. Likely because these were the images inscribed in my mind from history books and travel guides. Fascinated for as long as I can remember by what I perceived to be Japanese culture, Tokyo and its neighboring cities remained somewhere at the bottom of my "travel wish-list," below jungles, rainforests and various Natural Wonders of the World.

Jean Bernstein never gave up a fight for a cause in which she believed, and her dedication was honored Saturday at Main Beach when admirers and friends joined the peace vigil to which she was committed. Bernstein, who had been ailing for months, died of congestive heart failure Oct. 22 with all her children and her caregiver at her bedside in her South Laguna home. She was 88. "It was a great blessing that all four of us were there," said daughter Leyna Bernstein, who described her mother as the quintessential cup-half-full person as she coped with illness and the death of loved ones.

Editor's note: This adds the second sentence to the paragraph starting, "I serve on the 'quiet zone' task force... ". " Walking slow down the avenue,¿¿¿through my old neighborhood…" — Jackson Browne I seem to be out walking more these days, likely for good reason other than impending, rarified age or ignored health issues. Primarily, Buster loves to walk, as do my select network of friends. And it feels good just to be able to think at a slower, quieter pace.

Sitting somewhere between the ending and the beginning of the New Year, I find myself pondering the events of 2008, and of course, looking at the list of “hoped for” in 2009. When I look back on 2008, I’m struck by the extraordinary violence that continues to rage. Bombings, suicide explosions and air raids filled the news. There was not one peaceful month, not one spread of days when we humans lived in harmony. It saddens me that our species has come so far — and not come nearly far enough.
