SANTA ANA — At times, it was an extremely trying season for the Laguna Beach High boys’ basketball team. When it comes to league titles though, the Breakers are downright greedy. Laguna Beach surged in the fourth quarter Wednesday night at Godinez High to take a 48-38 victory over the host Grizzlies. The win, coupled with Estancia’s 46-43 upset loss at Costa Mesa, clinched the fourth straight outright Orange Coast League title for Laguna. The Breakers finished 6-2 in league; Estancia and Calvary Chapel finished tied for second at 5-3. It’s the 11th league title in the program’s history.

It's been a long time coming. Twenty-one years, to be exact. The Laguna Beach High football team exorcised a few postseason demons Thursday night at Santa Ana Bowl when the Breakers defeated the Santa Ana Saints, 39-14, in a first-round game of the CIF Southern Section Southern Division playoffs. The playoff victory was the first for the program since Nov. 20, 1987, when the then-Artists won at home against Elsinore, 28-21. You have to go back even farther than that - 40 years, in fact - to find the last time Laguna won a road playoff game.

A break in the season has come at the right time for the Laguna Beach High football team. With seven games down, the Breakers now can concentrate on the upcoming Orange Coast League race. "Concentrate" is the key word. During the past week, the Breakers have had time to work on all aspects of their game, some of which needed more attention than others. But everything, however, needs to be fine-tuned for an upcoming three-game journey that ultimately will determine whether or not they play a fourth game, and beyond.

Parking fines in Laguna are going up by $3 to offset the state's new fee on the citations starting Dec. 7. This is the second time in two years that the city has increased its parking fines to cover state fee hikes, which will raise the state's take to $12.50 per citation. The changes to the local fine structure will still put Laguna below the average of affected cities selected by the city staff for comparison and the county and well below some of the cities. "We try to be reasonable," City Manager Ken Frank said.
