Laguna Beach High School also hosts a ceremony for Carrillo, namesake of the campus baseball field, prior to the 3:15 p.m. home game Tuesday, April 26, Gregg said.


Hospital Uses Drama to Curb Drunk Driving

To educate teens about the dangers of drinking and driving, Mission Hospital has organized a series of mock crashes on high school campuses.

“This program is so effective because it shows teenagers in an extremely realistic way what can happen if they drink or take drugs and get behind the wheel or get into a car with an intoxicated driver,” Kathryn Scheidler, El Toro High School activities director, said in a statement.

Mock DUI crash events are planned for Monday, April 18, at El Toro High School, and Friday, May 13, at Capistrano Valley High School.
