I?m another Laguna person who was at Woodstock. Here?s something I wrote around the 30th anniversary for a college student who was writing a paper on the festival. Like Jonathan Lukoff?s reminiscence, I think, it gives a different side of the event: It?s interesting to be part of ?history?! I went to the festival with two of my sisters, Lisa and Mary, and a sister?s girlfriend. We only stayed for the first day. We chose to leave early. That may surprise you, because, in retrospect, Woodstock seems such a pivotal cultural event.

A new environmental festival will celebrate the restoration of giant kelp forests in Laguna Beach after 25 years of extinction. The Get Inspired organization and local Boys & Girls Club will host Kelp Fest 2010 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday at Main Beach, to celebrate the restoration efforts of thousands of volunteers and foster appreciation for kelp in the community, said marine biologist and Get Inspired founder Nancy Caruso. “Kelp is the basis of our ecosystem and is home to more than 800 species of animals in our oceans,” she said.

Last weekend was the 40th anniversary of Woodstock, and here at the paper we jumped on the bandwagon, inviting people to a “reunion” event at the Marine Room on Saturday. It seemed like a great idea. I still have my original tickets from the three-day festival in upstate New York, which wasn’t that far from where we lived in Connecticut. I went with a high school friend, Joanna, who got us tickets well in advance. But tickets stopped being collected long before we got to the event, and for some reason the untorn tickets for all three days — at $6 a day — turned up in a box of my things at my mother’s house two years ago. I also have a leather belt I bought at the crafts tent for my then-boyfriend, which I ended up keeping.

As a teenager growing up in Laguna Beach, I enjoyed seeing our town greeter, Eiler Larsen, with his friendly wave, hello and smile welcoming all to town. Times change, and gentle reader, you may want to read my conclusion first, before you too vomit at the new greeting policy of our city to homeless folks ? and the woe it has brought upon us. I conclude by asking that the current do-gooders take the current homeless population into their kitchens and homes and vehicles, and leave the remainder of decent citizens to pay our property taxes for schools, parks and police.

Since 1983, Bluebird Canyon Park has been home to a summer concert series that many Lagunans have come to count on and anticipate every year. The concerts are a showcase for musical talent, and a gathering place for families and friends who love to picnic -- and get up and dance -- in the bucolic setting of a canyon park. But with each passing year, and the growing popularity of the program, Bluebird neighbors have grown more and more weary of sharing their height-of-summer weekends with a thousand visitors.

Tom Titus Remember the sounds of the '60s? There was a lot of great music emanating from that decade. Especially from the female vocalists such as Diana Ross, Leslie Gore, Brenda Lee, Dusty Springfield, Petula Clark, Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin, Janis Joplin and the ageless Cher. It's doubtful that most of Laguna Beach's No Square Theater performers have much first-hand knowledge of that era, but that's not stopping them from re-creating it next weekend in the opening production of the company's 2004-05 season.

Celebrations. Beatles, birthdays, Woodstock, summer’s end — August has been quite the month. The recent Beatles Day at the Sawdust Art Festival was a tremendous day, filled with music, laughter, and lots of people. One of those people is our fictitious artist from earlier in the summer. The last time we saw him was just before Fourth of July. He has been very busy all summer and we have not heard from him since. Evidently, hearing so much of the music in one day, in one place, has inspired our intrepid artist to show his face — or pen — once again.
