A major excavation project on Ceanothus Drive in South Laguna is raising a ruckus ? on the ground and among its neighbors. The four-home project by Laguna Crestview Properties at 31422, 31452, 31460 and 31462 Ceanothus requires the removal of part of a large hill. Excavation began last week, but after several days of digging and moving soil, the contractors hit hard rock. On Wednesday, a ripper ? a huge rock-breaking machine ? shattered the rock and the ears of neighbors for hours.

Fishing or lobster catching off most of Laguna Beach could soon be illegal. Six miles of Laguna Beach coastline could be declared a “no take” zone for any form of living marine life under a recommendation approved Tuesday by the Marine Life Protection Act Blue Ribbon Task Force. If the task force proposal for a State Marine Reserve is adopted by the Fish and Game Commission, the coast from Crystal Cove State Park south to Aliso Beach would be off-limits to fishermen from the beach to about three miles out to sea, according to MLPA Initiative spokeswoman Annelore Reisewitz.

On Tuesday, the council ordered changes to grading and landscaping plans that exposed more of the project than had been approved. On Nov. 1, the council issued a stop-work order for the project, which has been a lightning rod for criticism by neighbors and community members because of its size.

Visitors to five North Laguna homes were charmed Sunday. About 550 folks attended the annual Charm House Tour, and they came from all over the county. “This was my Mother’s Day present from my son,” said Diane Child of San Clemente. Patricia Pawelski may be from Lake Forest, but she knows Laguna. “I took a bus here because it is less expensive than driving and looking for a parking space,” said Pawelski. Village Laguna has presented the tour for 36 years to raise funds for political and community activities, including donations to candidates and to local groups, and scholarships for Laguna Beach High School graduates.

Members of a large group of 50-plus orca, also known as killer, whales frolic Monday afternoon in the ocean off of South Laguna Beach, which excited local marine biologists. The animals, called "offshore orcas," are believed to eat mostly large fish and squid, not sea mammals. The offshore orcas travel in groups great distances and resemble large, black dolphins. The orcas are deep-sea divers, feeding on sea life at depths of 500 feet or more. They may have been attracted to the area by giant squid -- dozens of which have washed up on local beaches over the past month -- that live at depths of 1,000 feet.
