It?s clear there are strong feelings on both sides of the 7-year-old controversy about renaming the Laguna Beach High School mascot from Artists to Breakers. It?s also clear there may be a resolution in the works under a new district administration that is not afraid to tackle a tough subject. A lot of people have examined how the school mascot name got changed, and a lot was written about it in the newspapers at the time. A detailed report on the controversy was written by the Laguna Beach League of Women Voters, who were asked to look into the handling of two school elections held to determine and uphold the name change.

Steve Kawaratani "No more turkey, but I'd like some more of the bread it ate." -- HANK KETCHUM "Here's to Gibby!" -- ANONYMOUS The aftermath of Thanksgiving dinner and leftovers will likely induce guilt-driven exercise for many of us. Getting into the garden and mowing the lawn is a great way to purge the system of excess calories. If the gardener already cut your grass this week, then you can simply enjoy its emerald glory. Or, if your lawn area is still in the planning stage, read on and install it this first holiday season weekend.

The story of great art is not just about talent, paint, canvas or brushes. It?s also about passion, money, politics ? and, lest we forget, passion. One of the great neglected art stories of the 20th century will be told in an extensive collection of modernist works dating from 1917 to contemporary times, at Wendt Modern Gallery in Laguna Beach. The exhibition, ?Champions of Modernism III,? opening Saturday, represents a resurrection for a forgotten genius ? and perhaps a reconciliation as well.

"I should like to enjoy this summer flower by flower ..." ? Andre Gidé "What a day for a daydream..." ? John Sebastian I enjoy designing gardens, and although my own garden is not by any stretch of the most elastic imagination Eden, it is to my own personal paradise. While gardening, I am free to plan and do as I please, and the pleasure of working outdoors is only matched by the pleasure of daydreaming. In minutia, I conjure garden ideas of transplanting this or growing that, musings of cathartic gardening that purge me of anxieties.

It’s astonishing to get to the end of a year and realize all that has happened since the last time we took stock of events. There weren’t any landslides or other local disasters in 2008 (knock on wood, since there are still a few days left) but the year didn’t lack for drama or crises. Of course, 2008 will be known as the year the bottom dropped out of the world economy and the ramifications of that are still unfolding. In Laguna Beach, however, property values have so far held up, and the city and school district both counted their blessings throughout the year with no decline (actually some increase)

A sobering seminar on eating disorders Wednesday by clinical psychologist Karen Handley for the Laguna Beach PTA drew in many parents who had never attended one of their Coffee Break events before. Although nine out of 10 females have issues with their body or weight, only 10% of them have eating disorders, Handley said. Out of that, 5% to 10% of the cases end in death, either by suicide or starvation. “That is the highest mortality rate among all mental health disorders,” Handley said — higher than depression, schizophrenia or even bipolar disorder.
