In olden times, when weapons were not so varied in style, a good gunsmith was a national treasure, a cherished craftsman-artist, importuned and honored. Nicolas Noel Boutet--"Boutet of Versailles"--was such a man. Henry Hadley of England was another. So was Michele Lorenzoni of Florence. There were others. A man such as these, a creator who could design a gun and make it and maybe decorate it too, was singular, distinguished. Dan Dwyer of Mission Hills is such a man.

The Orange County Sheriff's Department SWAT team is responding to reports of gunshots in Silverado Canyon. Authorities were flooded with reports of gunshots from residents in the Jackson Ranch area of Silverado at about 10:55 a.m., Lt. Dan Dwyer said. No suspects or specific location for the gunshots have been identified, he said. Authorities have closed down about a three-mile stretch of Santiago Canyon Road between Silverado Canyon Road and Modjeska Canyon Road. “It's going to be a long search,” Dwyer said.

Two hikers who became lost Saturday evening in the Santa Ana Mountains were rescued Sunday afternoon without injuries, despite spending the night in the forest during a rainstorm, authorities said. Serena Neff, 24, of Dana Point and Carter McCoy, 33, of San Clemente called for help from Neff's cellphone about 5:45 p.m. Saturday, saying they had hiked into Hot Springs Canyon from the Lazy W Ranch off the Ortega Highway and could not find their way back. But phone service in the canyon was spotty and their contact with authorities was sporadic.

About 400 residents and 20 businesses in San Juan Capistrano have been evacuated after a wall of the swollen Trabuco Creek collapsed Wednesday morning. Emergency crews have been called in with heavy equipment in an effort to stabilize the creek bed with rock, officials said. Dan Dwyer, a spokesman for the Orange County Sheriff's Department, said authorities were notified of the breach at about 8:15 a.m. and began evacuating homes and businesses on both sides of the creek. The heavy flow of water in the creek reportedly caused the concrete panels on its western side to collapse.

Alemany High maintained control of the Del Rey League on Friday, outscoring Loyola, 9-6, despite being outhit by the Cubs, 13-12, at Loyola. The Indians stranded only four runners in improving to 11-8 overall, 5-1 in league play, 1 1/2 games ahead of St. Francis. Loyola (6-9, 3-3) is in third. But for some Alemany seniors, the game was more than just another step toward the league championship. "It was our last time playing at this place and we wanted to win real bad," senior Ray Cano said.

Orange County isn't exactly a beehive of traditional folk music activity--at least not activity that makes it onto disc. But two local folk bands, the bluegrass-leaning Andy Rau Band and Celtic traditionalists the Tinker's Own, have stepped forward with new CD releases. Ratings range from * (poor) to **** (excellent); three stars denote a solid recommendation.
