Man, 39, jailed in stolen purse case A 39-year-old Laguna Hills man was arrested after he was discovered sleeping near a reportedly stolen purse at a school in the 3000 block of South Coast Highway at 2:10 p.m. Feb. 17, Lt. Jason Kravetz said. The victim was the mother of a kindergartner at the school who had volunteered with the class the day before, and left her purse in the classroom while everyone went out to the playground. When she came back the purse was gone, and a witness said a man might have walked away with it. The next day, some of her friends helped her look around the campus for her purse, and they came upon a man sleeping behind a shed.

Tom Titus Young audiences at the Laguna Playhouse will have their imaginations tweaked by a trio of productions by the playhouse's Youth Theater ranging in theme from cuteness and fantasy -- including the world premiere of a century-old story -- to the harsh reality of teens with weapons and the tribulations of America's pioneer days. Starting things off in two weeks will be "Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse," a family play by Kevin Henkes, adapted for the state by Kevin Kling.

Tom Titus What the Youth Theater of the Laguna Playhouse needs, like the U.S. Marines, is a few good men. Young men, that is, of high school age or younger. In the company's latest production, "Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse," no fewer than four roles written for boys are played by girls. Not that they perform them badly, but it is a trifle disconcerting. Perhaps there just weren't enough boys in the playhouse's repertory or conservatory programs to fit the assignments required in Kevin Henkes' adaptation of Kevin Kling's children's fantasy.

A Sunday afternoon stroll in Laguna Beach was life-changing for a Paramount woman, who returned to Mexico Tuesday after she was arrested on a battery charge in Heisler Park. The woman had no identification, and allegedly told police officers that she was from Mexico and not in the U.S. legally. Police video captured the incident — showing the couple grappling with each other and the woman striking the man — and has been shown on TV news stations, raising the profile of the incident.
