An unknown Good Samaritan turned in to city officials a wallet containing $10,000, which he found on a Main Beach bench Saturday. A Newport Coast man had gone to a local bank that day and withdrew the money to pay a contractor for work he was doing on a restaurant he is about to open in Laguna Beach. He then sat on the bench, drank coffee and made calls, he told police, and left the bench without his wallet around 1:15 p.m. He told police he was distracted and forgot it. Police say a short time later the Good Samaritan found the wallet and gave it to Laguna Beach lifeguards, who then contacted police due to the large amount of money inside.

On Thursday morning, after our food pantry closed, a car pulled up to the Laguna Relief and Resource Center. The driver had found a mother and two children wandering at the beach with no place to sleep, so she brought them to us next door to the homeless shelter. Because the shelter can't accommodate kids, one of our volunteers got the mother online to find a place to sleep. The driver, meanwhile, made coffee, helped stock our shelves for Friday's shoppers, herded the children, found them toys, and waited patiently, as if there were nothing more important to do. An hour later, she packed up the family with their food and toys and drove them to their destination.

Three teenagers found out the hard way that Laguna Beach’s tidepools can be treacherous. The cousins — 15-year-old Ryan Galliano, visiting his aunt and uncle in Laguna for the week; Robin Reed, 13; and Julianne Bell, 15 — were playing on the rocks at Diver’s Cove at low tide on Tuesday and didn’t realize the tide was starting to come in until waves crashed over them. “We tried to climb up [the rocks] as far as we could to get out of the way,” Julianne said.

Laguna Beach lifeguards and firefighters were kept busy Saturday. The treacherous Giggle Crack at Diver’s Cove nearly proved fatal for a teenager and her would-be rescuers Saturday afternoon, and a possible missing swimmer brought out a dive team, helicopters and multiple-agency response near Emerald Bay about 7 p.m. A 17-year-old who could not swim was swept into the notorious Giggle Crack by a large wave about 3 p.m. The wave action...

A “Good Samaritan jumps into the water to save three cousins from tide pool that blasted them with water and dragged one in[“Teens saved from tide pool,” June 20].” Correct me if I am wrong, but how many times have we in Laguna read a headline similar to that? My answer is way too many — and what about the alternative headline, “Three cousins drown.” Think for a moment here and ponder if it were your family and they had drowned at the paradise-like beaches of Laguna.

Those familiar with the musical “Godspell” will remember that the show features 13 characters, representing Jesus and the 12 disciples. So what happens when you have a significantly larger stage on which to present it? Director Donna Inglima, who heads the Laguna Playhouse’s Youth Theater, has the answer — she has added eight more bodies, making a cast of 20 for her sprawling production, currently performing on the playhouse boards. “Godspell,” a 1970 musical by Stephen Schwartz and John-Michael Tebelak, is a modern retelling of the biblical parables such as the prodigal son and the good Samaritan.
