More public parking is on the way in downtown Laguna on what is now a city employee parking lot at the intersection of Laguna Canyon Road and Forest Avenue. The 130-space lot will be used until a proposed Village Entrance project -- the components of which have not yet been determined -- can be built. The parking lot project, approved Sept. 28 by the planning commission, is expected to be in place by spring 2007, pending approval from City Council.

-- Paul Clinton State Historic Preservation Officer Knox Mellon is scheduled to talk about the future of Crystal Cove on Monday in Laguna Beach. Mellon, along with several other state employees, will make a presentation about the challenges of developing a project in a historic district. The 46 rustic cottages on the beach were placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979 as one of the few remaining examples of "vernacular architecture" along the state coastline.

Suzie Harrison Understanding everything that's going on in Laguna Beach's art world can be quite daunting, especially when it comes to the three major summer art festivals and the world-famous pageant. But all it takes is a little information, and a small world of art opens. The Pageant of the Masters, which is celebrating its 70th anniversary, creates life-sized "living pictures" of classical and contemporary paintings, sculptures and other famous works of art. This summer's show is titled "Seasons."

Paul Clinton Two people's lives ended Friday evening in a vicious head-on collision on the northbound side of the San Joaquin Hills toll road. A man driving the wrong direction on the toll road caused the 6:18 p.m. crash, authorities said. It left the road strewn with tires, bumpers and the ripped-apart hulks of the three cars involved. The toll road from the Laguna Canyon Road to the Newport Coast Drive offramp was closed for several hours, authorities said.

On Feb. 1, I saw more than half a dozen young people grinding their skateboards on a concrete planter located in the center of Broadway at its east end. The new streetscape has not made Broadway safer for kids but more dangerous. Barbara J. Beck Costa Mesa * Reforms hurt Costa Mesa In the 61st year of this city, the last thing we want to hear is that the massive quantity of violations from the poorly managed 60th anniversary party are "apparent," or "potential," or somehow that reforms are now needed.

A car chase that began in Newport Beach Thursday afternoon ended in the Festival of the Arts parking lot in Laguna Beach after 35 minutes, authorities said. Newport Beach police arrested the female passenger for public intoxication. The male driver refused to cooperate with police when they asked him to exit the vehicle. He has not yet been arrested but was transported to Hoag Hospital with minor injuries, said Jennifer Manzella, spokeswoman for the department. It is unclear what type of injuries the driver is being treated for and how he sustained them, but alcohol was a factor in the chase, she said.

My memories of the Laguna firestorm of 1993 are still vivid, 20 years later. I photographed the day of the burn, weeks of clean-up and the feature stories that followed. It was a distinctive career experience for me as a photographer, covering my hometown on fire. It could have been anywhere in Orange County, but it was my hometown. It's one thing to see big fires burn other people's homes, but when they belong to your neighbors and friends, it was something else. I learned about the fire from a scanner report of a 2-acre brush fire near Laguna Canyon Road and the 405 Freeway a little before noon on Oct. 27. I was on assignment for the Laguna News Post shooting a business portrait.

On Nov. 2, Daily Pilot columnist Steve Smith wrote about Dr. Hazem Chehabi ("City Life: Syrian doctor is a man of peace") . I want to support his viewpoint. I have known Hazem for many years and completely understand the position that he is in. He is a dedicated doctor, wonderful parent and serves other people in our community. He is chairman of the UC Irvine Foundation, whose job it is to produce funds for our local university and our future leaders. Sometimes we find ourselves in difficult situations in life.

If you read this column, it?s likely that you have a garden. Maybe a big garden or a small garden. Either way, it?s your garden. But, you have another garden as well ? a garden that we share. Likely, you tend to your garden ? planting, watering, pulling weeds, organizing its plants to mimic nature and so on. Occasionally, you stop for a while and admire your garden and the natural wonders it offers. In your other garden you don?t tend to it. No planting, watering or weed pulling, and you certainly don?
