An outing in a local park to fly model airplanes on a beautiful day turned ugly last week for a Laguna Beach man who spent 28 hours caught in a deep ravine before being rescued. Moe Mohsen Sakahaii, 65, was rescued via helicopter from a remote area of Moulton Meadows Park at 1:25 p.m. July 31, said Lt. Jason Kravetz of the Laguna Beach Police Department. Sakahaii was taken to Mission Hospital Laguna Beach with minor injuries, despite being in the wilds of the park — which abuts a large wilderness area — for more than a day. An all-out search for Sakahaii started July 30, after his wife reported him missing to local police.

Andrew Edwards and Cindy Frazier "Irvine," the California sea lion that was removed from the San Diego Creek -- and then named for the city in which she was rescued -- left the Pacific Marine Mammal Center in Laguna Beach on Wednesday after a week of rest and relaxation. The female sea lion was released into the ocean from Dana Point the same day. Irvine, believed to be 3 to 5 years old, was in excellent health and quite aggressive, so her handlers believe she has a good chance of survival.

These injury accidents occurred on or about the Fourth of July weekend: On July 2, a bicyclist fell while riding the unimproved Moulton Meadows connector trail at Top of the World and required an air rescue. Unrelated to the bicyclist, an Edison truck driver mistook this same trail as a shortcut to Arch Beach Heights and plowed his vehicle into a ravine. This connector is the same trail the city has been considering for capital improvement for more than two years. On July 4, a 17-year-old pedestrian was clipped by a suspected drunk driver on Coast Highway.

The City Council took emergency action at its Oct. 4 meeting to stabilize the abandoned burn dump, which shed glass, metal and ceramic debris into a residential area in Laguna Canyon during the December deluge. Stabilization measures are to be implemented before mid-December if possible, bypassing normal bidding procedures when necessary, with contracts not to exceed $150,000. Preliminary studies have been conducted to evaluate the options to keep debris out of residential areas and Laguna Creek pending remediation of the site.

ELISABETH BROWN My garden is half a block from an ecological preserve, and it benefits by getting a lot of interesting wilderness "traffic" that I didn't expect, given its suburban location. A small dripping fountain in one corner attracts little songbirds: the occasional common yellowthroat, pairs of least goldfinches and my favorites, bushtits that arrive in twittering flocks. Sometimes the birds or the wind bring wild plant seeds into the yard as well.

Bob Borthwick Growing up outside of Los Angeles, I loved visiting Laguna Beach. The ocean was the main attraction, but other coastal communities also had beautiful beaches. What made Laguna so special to me was the experience of driving through Laguna Canyon to get to the beach. The rock outcrops, the oaks on the hillsides, the sycamores in the side canyons, birds circling and the ever-present feeling of peacefulness ... what better entrance to a village?
