They called Maurice (Red) Guyer the Laguna Legend, mainly because that's what he was. The name fit and so it stuck. Not that Guyer, who will be inducted Sunday into the Orange County Sports Hall of Fame, ever noticed such things. He was too busy being the Laguna Legend to stop and think about what it meant. To pause to reflect would have shown a lack of commitment, a sign of weakness Guyer simply couldn't afford. Forget how it would look to others.

The Boom Boom Room, a gay bar that became an icon in Laguna Beach and beyond, won a reprieve this week after the new owner agreed to extend its lease rather than close it as planned next month. "It's like Christmas in August," said Fred Karger, who has campaigned to keep the bar open. "Now that it's staying open, I think the chances are greater that it will remain open permanently."

It was meant to discredit the testimony I gave to the [Laguna Niguel] City Council at the June 6 meeting about the Binion project. It was so typical of the lies and deceit that have permeated this endeavor by Laguna Beach in an effort to stop Mr. [Jack] Binion, at any cost, from building on his property. One must realize the fabrication of this fraudulent letter is the standard procedure for many who live in Laguna Beach.
