We at Laguna Shanti were very displeased that when the letter to the editor from the president of our board of directors, Craig Florence, was printed Aug. 23 ("Building on Laguna Shanti Struggles"), two very significant sentences were deleted. They read, "To those at AIDS Walk OC, we want you to know that we understand our application (for funding) did not meet some requirements. This knowledge will enable us to submit a completed application in order to be considered for funds from next year's walk."

Three Orange County agencies that assist HIV-positive residents will pool their efforts with a $817,700 grant for a three-year research project designed to improve services. The grant from the California Endowment will enable the Delhi Center and Latino Psychological and Social Services, both of Santa Ana, to team with Laguna Shanti in Laguna Beach to form the HIV Wellness Collaborative, participants said Wednesday.

Regarding the stories on Laguna Shanti not receiving AIDS Walk money, it sounds like politics to me. It is a shame that AIDS services organizations cannot survive together. Especially during economic times as difficult as these. Laguna Shanti is unique and is needed. Last summer while my friend vacationed in the South of France, he decided to be HIV tested. He called me frantically for help. He had tested HIV positive. He wanted information fast in English and we both had access to fax machines.

In a bitter struggle over scarce funding, one of the three key Orange County organizations created to provide care for people infected with the AIDS virus has been pushed to the brink of closure by political turmoil and fierce competition. Essentially, the battle pits the Irvine-based AIDS Services Foundation, the county's largest and most influential AIDS care provider, against Laguna Shanti, a smaller center based in Laguna Beach known for providing more personal service.

Three weeks after announcing that a financial crisis was threatening to close Laguna Shanti next month, the director of the AIDS support group said Wednesday that at least two grants and a rally of community support have rescued the center. The most significant boosts came from the Irvine Health Foundation, which on Tuesday offered Laguna Shanti $15,000, and from AIDS Walk Orange County, which announced Wednesday that it will give the center $10,000.

When volunteer Deby Welty drops hot and cold meals off for the AIDS patients on her route, she believes she can feel her brother cheering her on. "I know my brother looks down on me and says, 'Go for it,' " she said. Her brother, who was one of more than 3,000 AIDS patients in the county, died recently of complications from AIDS. Welty volunteered to help Laguna Shanti, a nonprofit group that delivers meals and other services, because she can no longer help her brother, she said.

It's a fact of life: Hairdressers run behind schedule. Stylist and "Lagunatic" Rick Breco is the first to admit it. But he offers a good excuse. * Breco works in Laguna Beach, where parking is a bear. He has a residents pass, which allows him to park at meters for free. But only for two hours. He's got to move his car every two hours--and he works 10-hour days. "We have a joke at the salon," says the stylist at Furioso.

Running events within Laguna Beach proper are a rarity. The annual School Power run is the only one held on a regular basis. The city simply doesn't allow too many races on its narrow and often busy streets. So the Saturday debut of a new Laguna Beach run is sufficient cause for runners to sit up and take notice. Unlike the School Power run, the new Run for a Reason 5K run and walk doesn't veer into Laguna Canyon, instead staying close to downtown.

Fine artist Mary-Linn Hughes says it enriched her work and gave her profound personal satisfaction. Besides all that, it was a great time. "I think making art is fun, and making art with other people is even more fun," says the Huntington Beach photographer. "There was lots of joking around and playing and creativity."

The board of directors of Laguna Shanti would like all to know that Shanti is alive and well. Over the last couple of months, we have been diligent in determining and implementing fund development strategies, not only short term, but long term, to ensure the existence of Laguna Shanti. The staff, volunteers, concerned citizens and board are committed to the continued success of Shanti's providing needed services, but more importantly serving the Orange County HIV community. Part of the success in serving Orange County comes from the collaboration of Shanti and other much-needed AIDS agencies in the county.
