OUR LAGUNA Here's my New Year's Resolution. Never, never, unless it's a direct quote with which I will not tamper, will you read in this column the word persons. As far as I am concerned, the plural of person is people. Folks also works. But persons belongs only in statements such as "murder by person or persons unknown." If you know 'em, you probably also know whether they are man or woman, boy or girl. Does any obstetrician ever say, "It's a person"?

An ebullient crowd of supporters of the reelection of Mayor Pro Tem Toni Iseman gathered Thursday on Ocean Avenue to make donations and to cheer on the incumbent. Iseman is endorsed by her fellow incumbents Mayor Elizabeth Pearson and Kelly Boyd, who attended the kick-off bash, as did Councilwoman Jane Egly, with her husband, retired Judge Paul Egly. "I have been on the council for 12 years and this is the best one I have served on," Iseman said. "No deals are made. What you see when you watch us is what you get. " That is not to say there isn't some horsetrading — it's called compromise — or that they always agree.

"Lonesome Traveler" had plenty of company Saturday at the Laguna Playhouse gala opening. The Rubicon Theatre Co.'s ode to American folk music had the sold-out audience spontaneously singing along and the enthusiasm didn't end when the curtain came down. "This was so fun," said Kathy Conway , as first-nighters mingled with the cast and toasted them with champagne. Conway said she knew every word of the songs performed by the nine-member cast in their roles inspired by folk music immortals such as Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, Lead Belly and others.

Local artists don't fiddle around when handed an unvarnished violin by the Laguna Beach Music Festival. They create "Artful Violins," meant to be displayed rather than played. The violins are auctioned annually to raise funds to support the festival's outreach and educational programs. Violins created by artists Sandra Jones Campbell , Cheryl Ekstrom , Michael Obermeyer , Shannon Richardson , Lucas Rise and Kirsten Whalen were unveiled at a private reception before last week's First Thursday Art Walk at S Cube Gallery on North Coast Highway.

Others took the envelopes when they left the clubhouse.
