John M. Blaydes, principal of McGaugh School in Seal Beach, said he believes that being head of an elementary school is very important. "Children in those early years can learn to like school very much or dislike it," he said. "It also seems to me that an elementary school principal can have an impact on a large number of people--many children, many teachers and many parents. "So I think caring is the most important thing. You care about what you do, and you do it the best you can."

Voters will go to the polls next week in a City Council election that boils down to one familiar issue: how to fatten the city's anemic coffers without altering the seaside village's small-town character. It's an issue that has long dominated Seal Beach politics, especially in recent years when residents successfully mobilized to block several developments, including one proposal that would have placed more than 300 homes on the Hellman Ranch property.
