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.

Democrats celebrated the inauguration of the 44th president of the United States at a gala ball Tuesday — and they didn’t have to leave town to do it. The Laguna Beach Democratic Party hosted a glamorous black-tie event at [seven degrees] that belied the dire economic climate. As the newly inaugurated president said, “Tonight we celebrate, tomorrow we go to work.” Longtime Lagunan Denny Freidenrich dreamed up the event. “The Sunday after the November election, I woke up and said to my wife, Leah, it is too bad that we can’t go to the inauguration.

In my lifetime, I have voted Republican, Democratic, Independent, Libertarian, Green and Socialist. How many times did I vote for the winner? About two. But I was happy with the votes because I always tried to pick the candidate who I felt had it right, regardless of whether they could win or not. The point is, I believe we would be better off without partisan politics. If we took the local example and made everything non-partisan, we could approach the issues or candidates on their own merits, instead of simply adopting the force-fed partisan position.

It will be ballot box déjà vu on Nov. 7 for voters in the 48th Congressional District who will see the same list of candidates they voted on a little less than a year ago. But this time, incumbent Republican Rep. John Campbell has a record, and he and his Democratic opponent have been bringing it up in their campaigns. Campbell faces Democrat Steve Young and Libertarian Bruce Cohen — both of whom lost to him in a December special election for the 48th District seat, which represents Laguna Beach, Newport Beach, Irvine and all or part of nine other Orange County cities.

Laguna artist Nick Hernandez, who has sculpted several replicas of noteworthy figures such as Chelsea Clinton, is tapping politics for his latest inspiration - a sculpture of President Barack Obama. "[Artists] have a rather prominent voice in Laguna Beach," Hernandez said last week while working on the Obama sculpture at the Democrats' local headquarters. "When I do work, it's not about the amount of money. I think about making history. I think we're going to produce a great piece here.

By Catharine Cooper Happy 234th birthday, America! On Sunday, we will celebrate the bravery and vision of the 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence. It seems hard to fathom that we were ever under the ruling influence of any other country. Decades after its signing, President Abraham Lincoln called the Declaration of Independence "that immortal emblem of humanity," for it clearly set us apart from the rest of the world. It was a ragtag army of committed patriots that banded together to demand an end to the repression and excessive taxes of England.

I'm sorry to read about Cindy Frazier's traffic ticket, " From Canyon to Cove: Steered wrong by the Greeter statue ," Jan. 27. May I suggest walking in the future? According to Google Maps, it's only 18 minutes of walking from downtown to Brooks Street. I live on Thalia, also about 18 minutes to downtown, and I do the round-trip several times a day. I'm pleased to say I'm too poor to own a car, with the result being I walk at least 10 miles daily all over town doing my errands.
