Suzie Harrison Equipped with a license to drive, students in Linda Jarhaus' second-grade class took turns speeding through the super highways of the internet. This time their journey would be on a chalkboard-size Smart Board that the Top of the World Elementary School class received three weeks ago. The board is a large-screen interactive whiteboard that turns a computer and projector into a teaching tool for interaction and collaboration.

Laguna resident and lifelong skateboarder Eric Kirkland has invented the Nuclear Pickle, a longboard that enables tool-free adjustments and smoother rides. Recently adopted by Alliance Board Sports in Escondido and scheduled to hit stores in the fall, Kirkland said it is the only longboard on the market that does not require a tool to make on-the-road adjustments to the truck — the axle unit to which the wheels are attached. “This board can cruise,” he said.

Tuesday was not only the kickoff of the school year, but also the implementation of a new program at Thurston Middle School called the Organizational Wheel. The 18-week program is specifically designed for sixth-grade students. Pupils work in six-week blocks, learning computer basics, organized notebook study and life skills, including self-esteem. Teachers Jason Babiar, Andy Crisp and Leslie Maus are each teaching a different component. "I'll be teaching organizational skills, focusing on one of the most important things -- trying to get organized," Babiar said.

Suzie Harrison It's never too early to learn the power of persuasion, especially when it relates to the written word. It was a lesson creatively taught Tuesday by El Morro Elementary School second-grade teacher Jeannette Shaw. For the past few weeks, the class has been learning how to write a friendly-style format letter. "Today we're going to use persuasive language to write a friendly letter to convince your parents to buy you the cereal you really want, but they don't buy for you," Shaw said.

Suzie Harrison It was the third day of the fall semester at Thurston Middle School, and the students in Paul Matheson's seventh-grade social studies class were learning, having fun and acclimating to another school year. "We're starting out with what we're going to cover with the whole curriculum," Matheson said. "Right now, we're focused on getting prepared to understand the relationship between geography and history." By understanding this relationship, he said it's easier to understand what's going on in the world today, such as the war in Iraq.

You have to wonder what the South Orange County Chapter of Surfrider Foundation was thinking when board members abruptly pulled the plug on a long-standing and highly decorated ocean water quality testing program at Laguna Beach High School. The adults at Surfrider decided late last year to stop funding the weekly water testing by students in 2009, an action that essentially closed down the school?s Surfrider Club. Since Surfrider will no longer allow water testing as part of its student clubs, and the sanctioned activities ?

I am a current resident of Laguna Beach and have been a pediatrician in the community for more than 50 years. As a doctor, I have been witness to countless instances where alcohol and drugs have destroyed young lives. This is even true for "good" kids from "good" homes in our community who get access to alcohol or drugs. All it takes is access to these substances, and youth can get themselves into very bad — sometimes even deadly — situations. In my professional experience, underage alcohol use is often the tip of the iceberg that sends kids down the slippery slope of substance abuse.

I am a Laguna Beach resident and the owner of E-Cig City in Laguna Beach. I have read David Hansen's column for years and was in complete shock when I was bombarded by many people in regard to his Sept. 20 column in the Coastline Pilot. I am sorry about his experience with a person blowing vapor in his face. This is not right. I am very careful to explain to my customers that they should not force vaping on people and should be very cautious when vaping around non-smokers. I smoked two to three packs of cigarettes a day for more than 38 years.

Laguna Beach High School art students have a new tool in their arsenal that grants them access to a deeper level of complexity in their work. Since fall, students in Kerry Pellow's graphic arts and design class have used the Epilog Laser to etch and carve into wood, acrylic and fabric. The machine connects to a computer and recreates the on-screen design on the chosen medium. Grants from SchoolPower and the Festival of Arts Foundation funded the laser, which looks like a copy machine with a glass door that offers a view of the laser beam in action.

Rather than simply write a report, students in Dave Dixon's eighth-grade Spanish class are going high-energy marketing and high-tech. The Thurston Middle Schoolers are creating a one- to two-minute travel advertisement for a Mexican city of their choice using Prezi, a cloud-based program that allows users to insert pictures, music, text and audio. Dixon and his students talked about the challenge of swaying the public to visit the nation, which has been besieged by a violent drug war. "Crime is everywhere.

Something else to worry about... cookware. Rumors are swirling, like the vapors of PFOA, about the dangers of aluminum and coated cookware, not to mention the lead in some ceramic pots and the possible toxicity of plastic containers when heated or frozen. Are you prepared to throw out everything and start all over again? Do you really need to? Williams Sonoma and Coast Hardware would be delighted if you did. There are certainly some problems but how serious they are is somewhat debatable.
