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.

IRVINE - All season long, the La Cañada High boys' water polo team relied on a balanced offense, while Laguna Beach has leaned on its goal-scoring standout Nolan McConnell for offense. The Breakers' offensive strategy proved more effective when both teams met up in the Southern Section Division III semifinals at the William Woollett Jr. Aquatics Center in Irvine Wednesday. McConnell had a game-high five goals and drew double-teams all game, which opened things up for his teammates, in a 14-5 Laguna Beach victory.

Recently Mozambique Restaurant opened in Laguna Beach in the old Tortilla Flats location. Tortilla Flats had been closed for a few years, and we neighbors were looking forward to a nice business to improve the decaying building and parking lot. We were happy when Mozambique bought the building and began to fix it up. We were hopeful when they applied for their conditional use permit speaking of "community," a "family restaurant"...

Too few at CaDance performance At our local high school theater, I attended two magnificent performances of the CaDance Festival performed by national, award-winning dancers. I'm still reeling from the beauty of it all. This was a rare opportunity for the residents of Laguna Beach, and what a shame the theater was less than half full. We sat third row center for $35. Would our residents rather go to New York City or Aspen, where I have seen them at triple the price?

SOUTHEAST GLENDALE — A common theme occurred during a Pacific League-opening match between Glendale High and Burroughs on Wednesday afternoon. Glendale and Burroughs played even in the early stages of each game before Burroughs used a big run in the middle to pull away with a 25-13, 25-16, 25-16 road victory. It’s something Burroughs Coach Joel Brinton and his counterpart, Taase Mose, certainly noticed. “Every game went the same exact way,” said Brinton, whose team improved to 8-5. “For those moments when we did pull away, our passing got better, and that led to our setting and hitting getting better.

LA CRESCENTA — Protecting a one-goal lead with 40 minutes to play didn’t figure to be an easy chore for the members of the Crescenta Valley High boys’ soccer team. At least that’s what Crescenta Valley first-year Coach Kiel McClung surmised. With the overwhelming possibility of Crescenta Valley having to defend against set plays, something it has had difficulties with all season, a nightmarish second half loomed and then became a reality. Crescenta Valley yielded four second-half goals and saw its season come to a stunning close Thursday afternoon in a 5-2 home loss against Laguna Hills in CIF Southern Section Division IV first-round match.

GLENDALE — People with loved ones at Grand View Memorial Park are willing to do for free right now what the city of Glendale has failed to do with $107,800 in two months. That was the message Laguna Beach resident Lenore Devlin brought Tuesday to the City Council, as at least one city councilman lamented the city’s inaction at the cemetery. Devlin’s plan: to mobilize people in Glendale, her own community and Los Angeles County agencies to open the cemetery.
