Lake Laguna Niguel, only 10 minutes from the El Toro Y, could not contrast more sharply with the nearby, often-gridlocked freeway interchange. Willows line its banks, and rolling hills provide such a buffer from traffic noise that the small lake is reminiscent of a rural fishing hole. That charm has made it a weekday haven for retirees, who stop by to relax and chat as much as to fish. They may go home empty-handed, they say, but not disappointed.

Investigators tentatively concluded Friday that a massive fish kill in the county's only remaining natural lake was the result of runoff of fertilizer-laden water that caused the fish to suffocate. Hundreds of dead bass and carp were found this week in Lake Laguna, in Laguna Canyon, after residents in the nearby Leisure World retirement community complained about a putrid smell.

A new plan to rescue the only natural lakes in Orange County--three ecologically battered basins destined to be the crown jewels of what may become the county's largest wilderness park--calls for cleaning up dirty water and restoring natural vegetation. The plan by a San Rafael consulting firm will be unveiled tonight before the Coastal Greenbelt Authority, a panel formed to manage the Laguna Coast Wilderness Park at the edge of Laguna Beach.

Two letters to The Times (Feb. 2 and 23) brought back vivid memories of the liberation of the Philippines 40 years ago, and prompt me to share our dramatic rescue. Interned as a teen-ager, along with a younger brother and sister, plus our parents, we were under the control of the Japanese for more than three years. The final months of the occupation found us in the Los Banos Internment Camp, 50 miles south of Manila. As the American forces moved into the capital city, they liberated the civilians in Santo Tomas, but it was not until three weeks later that the 2,146 of us in the Los Banos camp were freed.

The State Coastal Conservancy has granted a Laguna Beach environmental group $75,000 to help restore the decaying Laguna Lakes, the only existing natural lakes in Orange County. According to Laguna Greenbelt Inc., a grass-roots environmental group established in 1968, the lakes have been invaded by unhealthy algae and vegetation due to the Southland's four-year drought.

I got on the water at Irvine Lake last week just before the storm hit. The west shore was lined with fishermen, the air was full of birds. An osprey swooped down on the rippling surface and flew off into the gloomy sky clutching a silvery trout, with other ospreys in frenzied pursuit. It was indeed prime time for a little fishing, for man and bird of prey, as activity within the waterways always seems to perk up in the hours leading to a storm.

More than 20,000 protesters spilled into the streets of Los Angeles, San Diego, Sacramento and even Modesto on Saturday in mostly peaceful demonstrations over passage of Proposition 8, the statewide ballot measure that bans same-sex marriage. The unfolding street scenes underscored the racial and religious tensions that have surfaced since Tuesday's vote threw into question the legality of 18,000 marriages of gay and lesbian couples and foreclosed the option for any more. Police estimated that 12,500 boisterous marchers converged about 6 p.m. at Sunset and Santa Monica boulevards in Silver Lake near the site of the former Black Cat bar, which the city recently designated a historic-cultural monument for its '60s role as home of the local gay rights movement.

The Saddleback Valley Voice published its final issue last week. Increased production costs and declining advertising revenues no longer justified publication of the weekly newspaper, the Voice reported on its final front page. Founded in 1995 by a division of the Los Angeles Times, the Voice was sold to Manning Media Management last year but continued to be included in Times subscribers' Saturday editions. The Voice covered Lake Forest, Laguna Hills and Mission Viejo.
