Mike Beanan would be insulted if you told him he lives in hip, well-to-do Laguna Beach. The 55-year-old craftsman who restores and remodels cottages insists his home is in South Laguna. Big difference, he says. "South Laguna is considered the old community, the old connection to nature," says Beanan, 55, boasting of a hippie culture that still runs through his end of town. "Laguna Beach is Coney Island. You go downtown, and it's just T-shirt shops, ice cream stores and pizza parlors."

The Aliso Creek Inn and Golf Course -- a quaint hideaway nestled in a picturesque canyon in south Laguna Beach -- has been acquired by the owners of the nearby four-star Montage Resort & Spa for an undisclosed sum. The Montage, in partnership with the Athens Group and individual investors, also has purchased Driftwood Estates, a 240-acre parcel where a developer had approval to build 11 luxury homes. A spokeswoman for the Montage said the purchase essentially ends those plans.

Threatened by a possible merger with a newly forming, mostly inland city, leaders of the small, unincorporated beach community of South Laguna have asked the City of Laguna Beach to annex their area instead. Ironically, the annexation request follows years of protest by many South Laguna residents that they wanted no part of Laguna Beach or any other city.

Apparently the jurisdictional future of the small village community of South Laguna is dangerously close to being absorbed by a much larger and untried municipal body; namely, the City of Laguna Niguel. The South Laguna specific plan, which now shields this picturesque community from the general influence of its surrounding unincorporated member, could be lost in this new power shuffle if Laguna Niguel has its way. We all recognize there are problems in annexing South Laguna, but I would rather have the problems solved by Laguna Beach than someone else.

Saying their eclectic, beach communities were very much alike, the Laguna Beach City Council voted unanimously Tuesday to annex the unincorporated community of South Laguna to cheers from the area's residents who had pleaded for the move. "It's a great victory for South Laguna," said Jim Danziger, vice chairman of the South Laguna Civic Assn. "It helps retain our local identity and character and allows for a say in our government in a way not possible through the county." Councilman Robert F.

Because of opposition from fishermen and other interests, the state Department of Fish and Game recommended Wednesday that an area off South Laguna not become a primary reserve for fishery research. The Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Dana Point and charter fishing operations in Dana Point Harbor were among those objecting to designating the two-square-mile ocean area near Salt Creek Beach as a marine ecological reserve, said Rolf Mall, chief of the department's marine resources division.

In what Mayor Dan Kenney termed as "Round 4 of the utility wars," the Laguna Beach City Council voted unanimously Tuesday night to award a five-year franchise for electrical service in South Laguna to San Diego Gas & Electric Co. With more than 125 people packing the Council Chamber, the council rejected a request by Southern California Edison Co. to reconsider electrical service in the area, which was annexed by the city in December and is currently served by SDG & E.

The dilapidated, empty mobile homes that used to sit on the Treasure Island site are nearly all gone, cleared away in preparation for construction of a $150-million resort. Phoenix-based Athens Group, which is developing the site, says its resort will match the area's oceanfront beauty. But South Laguna residents are preparing for what they say will be a construction nightmare.

The California Coastal Commission's approval of the Treasure Island project in South Laguna Beach was what some are calling a textbook case of how to develop the coast. Unlike acrimonious divisions on other projects, the developer of Treasure Island, environmentalists and the commission staff were able to iron out major differences and move forward. While not everyone was satisfied, most were pleased by the unprecedented protection of the ocean. "This is the wave of the future.

Perched high among the pine trees overlooking a creek and a shimmering green golf course, Canyon Lodge American Grill at the Aliso Creek Inn in South Laguna is as unpretentious as a pair of old Hush Puppies. And just as comfortable. If you gave Ralph Lauren a treehouse to decorate, this is what he would come up with: a cozy nest with berry red upholstery, old black-and-white photographs and Indian rugs hung on the walls. The only thing missing is a rocking chair on the porch.
