Among the various artistic groups under the umbrella of Laguna Beach’s Gallimaufry Performing Arts organization is one encompassing the stars of the future. The Generation GAP is an educational program operated by the parent group and is a self-producing teen theater company. These young people will take the spotlight Saturday when Gallimaufry Artistic Director Steve Josephson hosts the fourth annual fundraising benefit celebration at his home, 1685 Del Mar Ave. This year’s theme is the Annie Moffat’s St. Valentine’s Day Ball, named after the party attended by the characters in “Little Women” — which just happens to be the upcoming Generation GAP production.

The Fourth of July might be a national holiday and a day for beach parties, fireworks shows and barbecues, but it's no picnic for Laguna Beach's public safety services. Independence Day is the busiest day of the year in Laguna Beach, with all police officers on duty. On Wednesday, even Police Chief Mike Sellers was walking a beat and answering calls, Sgt. Jason Kravetz said. Marine Safety staff worked overtime from 6 a.m. until 11 p.m. Marine Safety Chief Mark Klosterman estimated about 60,000 people came to the beach.

Evan Marmol "Resident Evil: Apocalypse" is a rip-roaring, arm-chair clutching, heart-racing thrill ride. Unlike its predecessor, it is not riddled with episodic sequences: The narrative is nonstop. Command performances by Milla Jovovich who reprises her role as Alice, Oded Fehr (Carlos) and Sienna Guillory (Jill), not only serve to bolster the plot, but give the movie an edge that is usually absent from horror movies. Incidentally, Alice has been biogenetically enhanced giving her a slew of powers.

When I'd think of Japan, I'd picture cherry blossoms, Buddhist pagodas, geisha and what was probably the most delectable sushi on the planet. Likely because these were the images inscribed in my mind from history books and travel guides. Fascinated for as long as I can remember by what I perceived to be Japanese culture, Tokyo and its neighboring cities remained somewhere at the bottom of my "travel wish-list," below jungles, rainforests and various Natural Wonders of the World.

Issues and concerns abound about the sale of South Coast Medical Center to Mission Hospital, but one thing is clear: Laguna Beach needs its own local hospital. The facility is vital to the community and is a hub of health care despite the difficulties for hospitals in general. Laguna Beach has had its own hospital for some 50 years. Its loss would be felt on many levels. Under Adventist Health, the hospital was seen as a money-loser, but it appears that was due to Adventist’s very costly way of operating, with high-paid on-site administrators and an “administrative fee” that turned out to be about the same as the hospital was “losing” every month.
