The waiting is finally over. The Laguna Beach High football team will tee it up for the first time in the 2010 season at 7 tonight when the Breakers square off against visiting Northwood at Guyer Field. The game is also the season opener for the Timberwolves, who are somewhat of a mystery to Laguna Beach Coach Jonathan Todd. "From what I've seen of them on film, Northwood looks good to me," he said. "They have a pretty good running game and a quarterback who can throw the ball.

It's a song Mike McCaffrey hopes will help to brand Laguna Beach in popular music, and Friday morning at the edge of a parking lot on Ocean Avenue, it had its first-ever public performance. With the driver's-side door of McCaffrey's black Ford Explorer open, the composer slipped a CD into the stereo and serenaded the audience - well, one reporter and one photographer - with a bouncy tune that sounded like a relic from the days of Irving Berlin. After an introduction of guitar, ukulele and swishing drums, a honey-smooth female voice began rhapsodizing about the charms of the seaside city: "Laguna, nestled by the sea / is softly calling you and me. " On the phrase "Lag uuuuu na," which rises and falls delicately, McCaffrey pantomimed the motion of fingers on a guitar.

EDITOR'S NOTE: The following letter was addressed to Gov. Jerry Brown and members of the Assembly and state Senate budget subcommittees. Re: Department of Developmental Services Budget Cuts, We have a severely disabled child named Alexandra. She is 9 years old. The proposed budget cuts will have a devastating effect on her, our family and our ability to cope with her disabilities. These cuts will not allow us to care for her in our own home. As a parent, you must realize how devastating this very real prospect is. A cut this big, and without detail, to a department that serves some of California's most vulnerable residents is unconscionable.

Never again will I accept the argument that the youth in our country, or the world for that matter, no longer have positive role models to look up to and admire. Time and time again we have seen individuals, especially professional athletes, exhibit unethical behavior, bad moral choices and indiscretions of such a magnitude that we are at a loss for words when trying to defend them to our children. Well, this is not a story about that. This story is about Bethany Hamilton.

The outdoor basketball courts at the Boys & Girls Club of Laguna Beach served a different purpose for a few hours on April 17. Instead of shooting hoops, kids were riding skateboards alongside employees from Irvine-based Element Skateboards Inc., showing off their tricks on the quarter-pipe and "pyramid" ramps at the club's main branch on Laguna Canyon Road. The event kicked off the club's seven-week skate camp. Children have wanted a place and time to skate, and Element was more than willing to help provide staff to offer some education.

The Laguna Beach Arts Commission has recommended a piece by two local artists who have a track record of creating public art to commemorate two police officers who died in the line of duty.

Laguna Beach's annual Kelpfest was born out of frustration. Every time Nancy Caruso heard people grouse about kelp washing up on local beaches, she'd want to "bang her head against a wall. " To her, that was akin to planting trees only to gripe when they shed leaves. The Garden Grove resident - who founded Get Inspired Inc., a nonprofit specializing in environmental education and conservation programs - was discussing what she deemed an absurd situation with her friend when inspiration struck.
