SUZIE HARRISON I have always loved fireworks. Laguna is among the top three I've experienced -- they're actually all tied for first. In San Francisco I had the pleasure of watching from a boat in the bay. We had great views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the city. Vail is another prized place with three different shows on three nights within a 10-mile radius. It's breathtaking to see the mountains highlighted in so many colors. And then there's Laguna.

Suzie Harrison To surf or not to surf has never been a question in the mind of Kathy Zuckerman. She dove into the lifestyle as a teenage girl back in the 1950s. She defined the surf lifestyle for millions of people. If she sounds like a real-life Gidget, she should. She is. The surfing icon paid a visit to Laguna as part of the Laguna Art Museum's Surf Culture Lecture Series. "All About Gidget" took place Sunday at the museum. Zuckerman had a lei around her head and the appropriate California glow -- it was easy to picture her back in her teenage surf days.

EYE ON ARTS AND ENTERTAINMENT I am rather excited that fall starts this weekend -- it just seems like a time of renewal and energy. When I was growing up in Kansas City, it was the most picturesque time of the year. And from having spent many years in Colorado, I know the leaves have already started changing in Boulder and the aspens in Vail usually hit their prime this weekend. To me the changing of the leaves, their color, is art in and of itself.

JAMES PRIBRAM Hold on to your seats. Not only did we get what seems like the first good south swell in years this week, but we have another Surfrider benefit concert from 3 to 8 p.m. Sunday at the Ocean Avenue Brewery. This special event will help the Laguna chapter of Surfrider and the Laguna Beach High School water-testing program. This program offers a "hands-on" experience with Environmental Protection Agency-approved testing methods, an introduction to the local environmental issues and the opportunity to raise the level of awareness in our community about water quality problems at our braches.
