Calling All Anglers
By Steve Barrett
While some of the previous days have reminded us that “June Gloom” is not just a slogan, some of our days had sunshine. We received a call from the Isthmus at Catalina two Saturdays ago and the weather could not have been better. The water was warming up and the Bass were biting.

Locally the water temperature in Newport Harbor has been above 70 degrees for more than two weeks. Tuesday I checked a fishing site on the internet and four miles west of Dana Point the ocean temperature was above 70 degrees. While that day the bite was slow, previously White Sea Bass and a few Yellowtail were landed. It could be just a matter of weeks if the sea temps hold that the Dorado and Wahoo are on the way to our waters. …

Domes Will Remain Intact for Years
By Rita Robinson and Andrea Adelson
The San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station near San Clemente won’t be restarted again, but it will be years before its distinctive double domes disappear from the coastline.

“It doesn’t happen overnight,” said Edison spokeswoman Maureen Brown, describing a years-long process decontaminating and deconstructing the plant under supervision of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Once ceasing operation, the utility is required within two years to file a decommissioning plan, which must be completed within 60 years, according to the NRC’s website. The expected tab is $4 billion, Brown said.

Money to fund the nuclear power plant’s dismantling began trickling into a fund from its first day of operation 40 years ago from customers, including residents in Laguna Beach and Newport Beach. …

Exploring Moro Canyon
By Sharael Kolberg
Driving down Pacific Coast Highway between Laguna Beach and Corona del Mar, you may catch a glimpse of the tents and RVs perched on the cliffs of the relatively new Moro Campground located in Crystal Cove State Park. But what most people don’t see is the many ways in which the 2,400 acres of undeveloped open space is kept in its pristine, natural environment. Likewise, not many see the efforts by locals, nonprofits and philanthropists to create new opportunities for the community to not only enjoy the space through activities like mountain biking, hiking, picnicking and camping, but also become involved in the area’s preservation. …

The Port Streets
By Nicole Nelson
Newport’s Harbor View Homes neighborhood has the reputation of being one of the most sought-after, family-friendly communities in Orange County. Its residents, who live on streets with names like “Port Provence” and “Port Stirling,” refer to the neighborhood as “the Port streets.” The community, which lies between MacArthur Boulevard, San Miguel Drive, Bonita Canyon Road and San Joaquin Hills Road, was built in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The neighborhood still contains original tract homes-some remodeled, others completely rebuilt. …

Fit to Be Tried: SUP Yoga
By Ashley Breeding and Alli Tong
There are few athletic activities more relaxing than stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) and outdoor yoga, so I imagine that combining the two can’t get any more Zen. However, it’s going to take a little practice to get there. …

Eyes of the Sea and Shore
By Alli Tong
Each year at the end of February, 50 or more aspiring lifeguards will plunge into Laguna Beach’s chilly ocean waters-temperatures that often dip into the frigid 50s-near the Main Beach buoy in the early morning. In these uncomfortable conditions, they overcome a 1,000-meter swim in under 20 minutes as part of the annual Laguna Beach lifeguard tryouts.

This is just one important test that these hopeful lifeguards, who often range in age from 16 to mid-40s, must pass in order to make it into the Seasonal and Rookie Ocean Lifeguard Academy (SROLA), a United States Lifesaving Association (USLA) certified training. They will undergo intense, rigorous training encompassing more than 100 hours, and only upon completion of training will a select group be given the prestigious honor of becoming a cadet, or rookie guard. …

The Right Slice
By Allison Hata
Gone are the days of oil-soaked paper plates filled with greasy masses of extra cheese and pepperoni (and extra calories)-this is the era of the pizza renaissance, a grand movement in which handcrafted gourmet pizzas take center stage. In Laguna, pizza is an experience not to be forgotten, with each restaurant offering its unique take on this culinary staple. Whether they specialize in pizza or just feature an amazing array of artisan options on the menu, these eateries will treat diners to the perfect pie. …
