Much has been and will continue to be written and said about the 2014 Laguna Beach High School girls’ water polo team. And after all the tournament victories, historic wins, record scoring and just plain old-fashioned dominance, they have more than lived up to the considerable hype. But through it all, this once-in-a-generation collection of […]
Laguna Beach is a key city within the 74th Assembly District. As a candidate to represent this city, I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and talk about the issues that I feel are important in the upcoming election. As an eight-year council member and two-term mayor of Newport Beach, I have […]
By Robert Campbell Like most of her teammates at Laguna Beach High, Cara Borkovec grew up playing water polo. Now she’s a senior co-captain of arguably the best high school water polo team in the country. But Borkovec is not your typical southern California girl. In fact, she’s from Oak Park, Ill., just east of […]
Girls Water Polo now 17-1 In one of the top all-time athletic contests for Laguna Beach High School, now in their 80th season of competition, the girls’ water polo squad handed second-ranked Newport Harbor (16-4) the worst loss in their sport’s history with a 13-1 defeat Friday, Jan. 24, at the Newport pool.

The article “First Candidate to Bid for Laguna’s City Council” in the Jan. 24 edition incorrectly described candidate Robert Zur Schmiede’s wife, Robin. She worked as Newport’s city attorney and her term on the Design Review Board ends in January 2015.
Editor, In response to last week’s Speaker’s Corner (“Art Studios are Scarier Than Fires and Floods?” in the Jan. 24 edition). Well, here we go again. If we speak out against this massive development we’re “mis-informed.” Nowhere does the developer mention the project is a 30-unit apartment building with 47 parking spaces. Or that his […]

Boys Basketball (13-5, 2-0) Last week Laguna won a pair of league games to open their 80th season starting with a record 74-25 rout of Saddleback on Wednesday, Jan. 15 at the Roadrunner Gym. Laguna tied the school “margin-of-victory” mark with a 49-point win matching a 2009 win over Calvary-Murrieta. The contest also marked the […]
While Newport Beach reaped an estimated $10 million in hotel and restaurant bookings by hosting the college football championship played at the Rose Bowl on Monday, Laguna Beach’s hotels, restaurants and shops reported a bountiful holiday season as well, partly from feasting on Newport’s spill-over. January traditionally sees a post-holiday slump in tourism from corporate […]
Laguna Beach High School’s surf team competed in the league finals against San Clemente, Dana Hills and Newport Harbor at Upper Trestles in San Onofre State Beach. Despite the small surf and chilly temperature, Dante Madrigal came close to advancement in bodyboarding, coming off a season-long injury to cover for the injured Jack Dickerson. Next […]
Editor, As I read Mr. Hill’s article (“Overkill by Entrance Opposition,” Oct. 4) decrying the misbehavior of the anti-entrance lobby, I could not help but think that their behavior was precipitated by a sense of the threat people are feeling as our personal rights are being eroded both locally and nationally. We read of privacy […]
Rehabilitated California sea lions Grace and Evanora will be released back into the wild this weekend by the Pacific Marine Mammal Center, whose staff and volunteers saved many lives during an unprecedented stranding epidemic this spring.
