LAGUNA BEACH - It has been more than two decades now since Bill Barnett coached Erich Fischer at the 1992 Summer Olympic Games in Barcelona, Spain. Team USA lost in the semifinals that year on the way to a fourth-place finish. On Saturday afternoon it was Fischer's daughter, Makenzie, who nearly sent Barnett's high school team home a round earlier in an upset loss. Makenzie Fischer, a sophomore at Laguna Beach High, scored a match-high six goals for the Breakers in the CIF Southern Section Division 1 quarterfinal match.

This is, indeed, a city with a heart. After sustaining our own disaster just over three months ago, and mounting extraordinary efforts to help some dozen families left homeless, Lagunans are now leaping to assist the victims of Hurricane Katrina. From children to adults, animal control workers to restaurateurs, locals are doing everything they can -- bake sales, concerts, even food convoys with portable kitchens -- to help those who lost not just their homes but their jobs, schools, and entire neighborhoods to this mega-disaster.
