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?

GAINS DISTINGUISHED SCHOOL BUS DRIVER Sally Miller, a newly retired Ocean View School District bus driver, was named California's School Bus Driver of the Year last week. Miller, 62, said she considered the children on her route to be like her own grandchildren. "For 25 years... to drive a big, yellow bus without ever being involved in a collision is pretty remarkable," says Denise Medina, an officer with the California Highway Patrol, which gave Miller the award.

I am disappointed that some recent letters to the paper discussing the city's financial management practices were so badly misrepresented. One letter, in particular, was extremely inaccurate. First, some of the numbers in the letter were just plain wrong. For example, San Clemente's annual budget is not $43 million -- it is $102 million (as of 2004). They have a population of 60,701, while we have a population of approximately 24,500. Some of the comparisons in the letters were also not apple-to-apple and, thus, bad examples.
