When he was a young man, Hobie Alter had a clear vision of his future: He didn't want a job that would require hard-soled shoes, and he didn't want to work east of Pacific Coast Highway. He succeeded. The son of a second-generation orange grower, Alter is credited with innovations that allowed people who couldn't lift log slabs to surf and those who couldn't pay for yacht club memberships to sail. Known practically everywhere with a coastline or a lake simply as "Hobie," Alter developed the mass-produced foam surfboard.

As California grapples with a drought, Laguna Beach's two water districts are urging customers to be cautious and conserve water, much like they were doing even before the current parched conditions. Laguna Beach County Water District staff is considering asking customers to voluntarily trim water use by 20%, which would align with Gov.

Guess what's back? Measles. Really. This shouldn't be. The dangerous trend of not vaccinating children is leading to an uptick in a highly preventable disease that was all but eradicated in Southern California. Children are needlessly suffering from the misinformation campaigns about the supposed, and mostly denounced, dangers of vaccines. There's a real threat here in Orange County, which, as the Los Angeles Times reported, has had the biggest outbreak of measles of any county in the state.

It wasn’t hard for him to coax me out of my tasks and into the joys of beach walks. Husband Steve and dog Buster joined us on Father’s Day. Heading from the house, we strolled down Thalia Street to check the surf. Because we had the dog, we weren’t allowed to walk on the sand.

The show was created by Laguna artists Faye Chapman and Tim Carmody, and Los Angeles Times photographer Genaro Molina in recognition of National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week in November. The power of "Homeless in Paradise" is found in its visceral treatment of homelessness in idyllic Southern California. Chapman and Carmody's portraits capture the vulnerability and resilience of individuals who survive on the streets of Orange County.
