Course in Talmudic law offered at center In response to the successful turnout in 2006 for ?You Be the Judge,? an interactive course allowing students to explore the Talmud?s thinking about civil law, the Rohr Jewish Learning Institute is launching ?You Be the Judge II.? ?You Be the Judge II? presents students with real cases brought before Beit din, the court system of Jewish law, and compares Talmudic analysis with the contemporary approach taken in U.S. courts. Topics include business ethics, property rights, and employment practices, and each lesson provides an opportunity to question, discuss, and argue, based on principle and precedent.

The Patriots Day Parade Assn. has a right to refuse entry to any group that they want. A precedent was set in 1968 when the association refused to admit a float sponsored by the Peace and Freedom Center of Orange County for the same reasons given to James Gilchrist of the Minuteman Project -- namely that the Peace and Freedom Center was politically controversial. At that time there were many differing strong opinions about U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War, and the antiwar movement was considered politically controversial.

I?ve been doing research on Laguna Beach High School since 1993. The mascot background: The core of the existing school was built in 1927-28, opening for instruction for the fall 1928 term as the K-8 ?Laguna School.? The high school was added in the fall of 1934. Laguna teams went without a nickname until Dec. 7, 1934, when ?Breakers? was adopted by the high school. This was after the Fall 1934 sports season. Laguna Beach already had a reputation as an art colony even before the establishing of the Festival of Arts (1932)

Property taxes for the renovated Heisler Building will be reduced thanks to the City Council's approval Tuesday of an owner's application for a Mills Act Historic Preservation agreement. Laguna Beach participates in the Mills Act agreements with the state to encourage the preservation of historic structures by the reduction of property taxes and the granting of other benefits. The property owner is expected to use the money saved on taxes over the 10-year life of the agreement to maintain and/or rehabilitate the historic structure.

Dennis McTighe El Nino's effects will begin taking hold by July or August. That means we'll get dumped on big time next year. On this date in 1997, the water temperature was an incredible 74 degrees. It would not sink below 70 degrees until Thanksgiving that year. Monday the water temperature was 59 degrees. I shall welcome the new El Nino with open arms. Looking back on past El Ninos the summer of 1972 set a new precedent surf-wise. Every eastern Pacific hurricane, from Ava to Tanya, was a category three or stronger.

Following are the final recommendations from the Parking/Traffic/Circulation Committee's subcommittee regarding midtown preferential parking: 1. Preferential parking for the residential areas of midtown should not be implemented as the lead change to the parking circumstances for several reasons: Circulation of traffic in the neighborhoods and adjoining areas would be negatively affected. The core problem of insufficient parking is not solved by initiation of such a restrictive measure.

The City Council and Measure A Oversight Committee should think carefully before allocating $125,000 from the special half-cent sales tax in place since July 1 toward stabilizing a section of Bluebird Canyon that was not part of the June 1, 2005 landslide. Landslide recovery coordinator Bob Burnham and others working to shore up the slide zone say this is an easy and relatively inexpensive way to avert a potential future landslide in an area that has had two major slides in 26 years.

Lagunans may be cursed -- or blessed -- to live in interesting times, and to live in an interesting place. A judge has ruled that the Patriots Day Parade Assn. may reject an entrant, the Minuteman Project, whose members consider themselves the epitome of patriotic and who freely exercise their First Amendment rights all over the country. Parade organizers rejected the group because of fears that the controversial, anti-illegal immigrant organization -- which has marched in Laguna numerous times already -- would bring a discordant note to the positive, upbeat tone of the parade.
