From his cramped kitchen that doubles as an office, Bruce Hopping is burning the midnight oil, pounding out yet another nightly blitz of faxes. Destinations: Rio de Janeiro, Morocco and Greece. "Nighttime is the only time I get to reach people in other countries because of the time differences," Hopping said, "so I rise every day about 10:30 in the morning and I don't get to bed till 3 a.m." His habits are those of an investment banker. But portfolios are not his interest.

The City Council has agreed that Moulton Meadows Park field should, for part of the year, be reserved for organized soccer games, and has chided residents who said the games shouldn't be encouraged in their "back yard." "I'm just very disappointed," Councilman Dan Kenney said after listening to Arch Beach Heights residents say Moulton Meadows should remain a neighborhood park. "It's not a park for Arch Beach Heights. It's a park for Laguna Beach."

On your mark! Set! Bach! For 869 long-distance runners here on Sunday, it was time to go for baroque. As a recording of Johann Sebastian Bach's Brandenburg Concerto thundered from loudspeakers at Newport Dunes, the runners took off on an eight-kilometer dash around the scenic Back Bay. For this day only, it was pronounced "Bach Bay," as in the first Bach Bay 8-K.

Heisler Park's shuffleboard court used to be a center of social life for beach-goers, as dozens flocked to the court to vie for a spot. But in recent times, says longtime shuffleboard buff Willis Leach, 77, it's been tough just to find four people for a game. It won't make many "Things to Worry About" lists, but for at least a few devotees, the demise of shuffleboard in Laguna Beach has been a sorrowful experience. And soon, they expect to lose their court altogether because of lack of use.

City officials remember with vivid clarity the giant tequila-bottle balloon that used to bob over Main Beach during the annual men's and women's professional volleyball tournaments. It symbolized everything they didn't like about the pro tournaments that had grown out of the village's traditional amateur competitions dating back to the mid-1950s.

Mothers don't love their children more than Laguna Beach residents love Skipper Carrillo, says Norm Borucki, Carrillo's friend for 30 years. He is only half-joking. Carrillo, 52, is as integral to Laguna as the baseball field that bears his name. For three decades, he has been third-base umpire, batboy, scorekeeper and cheering squad for high school and Little League games. He has tidied locker rooms, washed uniforms and prepped the fields. And stored it all in his memory.
