A wonderful new store in Laguna Beach - Laguna Wine, Coffee, & Specialty Foods - is an oenophile's paradise and a gourmet's delight. Even if you are neither, you will find the knowledgeable and friendly staff eager to help you make your choices. The owner, Daniel Huang, a dentist, is a wine and food lover who has dreamed of opening a shop like this for many years. He tasted food, talked to people and researched for six months, then opened in June. A coffee bar in the front of the shop serves award-winning Verve coffee from Santa Cruz, prepared in a filtered Chemex carafe, and espresso and lattes from an Italian La Marzocco espresso machine noted for its precise temperature control.

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.

LAGUNA BEACH — The problem wasn’t getting the shots Tuesday afternoon for the Edison High girls’ water polo team. The problem was converting them, and against a solid opponent like Laguna Beach, that made the difference as the host Breakers captured a 6-4 nonleague win. Edison, which has been enjoying a very solid early-season run, has already beaten Long Beach Wilson and Rosary to open the season and finished third in...

HUNTINGTON BEACH — It wasn't looking pretty for Ocean View in the early stages of Thursday's girls' basketball nonleague game against Laguna Beach. No, not with the visiting Breakers starting to quickly pull away in the second half — and seemingly comfortably, too, from what had been a close game. The Seahawks were struggling on offense, giving up some easy buckets defensively, and appeared to be heading toward their ninth defeat of the season after digging themselves into an 11-point hole.

Earlier in the week, Ocean View football coach Harold Eggers was leery of the Laguna Beach offense which, he said, could score quickly. He and his Seahawks found that to be true Friday at Ocean View. Laguna struck fast — and fairly easily — for scores on its first two possessions. But then Ocean View made some defensive adjustments, rode the running of Timmy Robinson and two big plays by Blake Walker, and took advantage of an injury to Laguna quarterback Austin Paxson, to finish fast for a 36-14 nonleague victory.

Retailers in Huntington Beach have seven months to adjust to the city's new ban on the distribution of plastic bags. Though it has yet to take affect, it has some businesses in the community worried. Approval for the ban was finalized Monday by the City Council with a 4-2 vote. The public has a 30-day period to gather signatures and appeal the ordinance, but if no appeal is made the ban will take effect on Nov. 1. Huntington Beach would be the third city in Orange County to prohibit the distribution of single-use bags.

While Huntington Beach restaurant Slapfish has endured the typical trials and tribulations of a new business, its owners are now reeling in success and ready to cast a wide net into the Middle East. On a recent afternoon, founders Andrew Gruel and Jethro Naude reminisced about the days when all they had was enough money for a few food trucks and the ambition to establish a profitable and environmentally sustainable food franchise. The co-owners recalled the time in 2011 when a food truck broke down on the 405 Freeway during gridlock traffic and the day their cooks had to make sandwiches in the vehicle as they were driving to an event.

Starfish Laguna Beach has hired a new chef since my last visit. He came to work there about a year and four months ago. His name is Marco Romero and he is Venezuelan. I was curious to see what a South American chef would make of this Pan Asian restaurant. Let me say at the start that he is doing a terrific job. A large central bar dominates the restaurant. There are banquettes along one wall with tall stools, a quieter room toward the back and an outdoor patio. The d├ęcor is quite beautiful.

I am writing in response to Newport Beach Councilman Keith Curry's letter regarding local control of beach fire rings [" Commentary: Each city should make its own fire ring decision," Jan. 11]. I too want to discuss the important issues facing California, such as attempts to weaken Proposition 13 by the Legislature. Just as important, we must also protect Proposition 13 from local elected officials who use different mechanisms to circumvent it, such as a dock fee to increase taxes on homeowners.

Caring for the environment that our grandchildren will inherit is rational and progressive. ("What will they try to ban next?" Oct 31). It is not a hassle to carry a washable, nylon bag that can be used for takeout, groceries or clothes shopping. It can easily fit in a purse or cargo pocket. A heavy canvas tote is seldom necessary since many of the bags available at most drug stores and supermarkets are lightweight and strong. Reusable bags pay for themselves since many stores give a discount for each bag used.

Ristorante Rumari is a family restaurant featuring Southern-style Italian cuisine. We haven't been back to this Laguna Beach eatery in six years, and were looking forward to revisiting it to see if the food was as good as we remembered - and to try some new dishes we hadn't had before. The owners, Bina and Antonio Crivello, came to California in 1972 with their four sons, leaving behind their restaurant in Porticello, Italy. Mama Bina taught son Vincent and his brothers how to cook so she could stay at home and watch soap operas.
