Weary of the battle between residents of Laguna Niguel and Dana Point/Capistrano Beach over possession of the Monarch Bay coastline, Supervisor Thomas F. Riley has resigned from the Local Agency Formation Commission. Both of the proposed cities want the coastal strip, home of the Ritz-Carlton Hotel, and the five-member commission has been beset by the competing claims. Riley's district, which extends from Costa Mesa to San Clemente, includes all the areas involved in the dispute.

L.A. Fashion Week's kickoff event, the first day of newcomer Los Angeles Fashion Council's two-day run of presentations and runway shows at the Carondelet House venue in MacArthur Park, was a reminder that the city is home to a considerable amount of talent. Not just in terms of the fashion designers, but also in terms of how those movers and shakers continually  undertake the Sisyphean task of organizing and launching ever newer efforts to showcase them in a way they deserve.

Chris Agorsor wasn't supposed to play Friday -- and LAFC wishes he hadn't. On Thursday night, Agorsor, this year's Gatorade boys' soccer national player of the year and arguably the best youth prospect in American soccer, was barely able to walk in his hotel room after an MRI exam taken that day revealed he had suffered a sprained knee earlier in the tournament.

Recently coastal Laguna Niguel had an advisory vote on its future and voted to join Capistrano Beach/Dana Point. The Local Agency Formation Commission told Dana Point back in April that it should take Capistrano Beach along with in its incorporation. Capistano Beach was never even given a hearing on its incorporation. If coastal Laguna Niguel can have an advisory vote, why can't Capistrano Beach decide its destiny? Come on LAFC, be fair.

The inaugural Development Academy Under-17/18 championship game was lights out -- literally. Thirty seconds into the first of two mandatory overtimes -- no golden goals in this format -- the lights on the field of the Home Depot Center went out. The game, which was being broadcast live on ESPNU, was tied, 2-2, at the time of the power outage.

It may be the future of soccer in the United States or the death of high school futbol in California -- but it's here in Los Angeles. Created by the U.S. Soccer Federation, the Development Academy is a super league of 64 of the best-known youth soccer clubs from across the nation and it kicks off a finals tournament today at the Home Depot Center in Carson to close out its inaugural season. It's a season that will be remembered, in these parts at least, for its clash with high school soccer.
