Here is a look ahead to events and happenings in Laguna Niguel-Dana Point and Orange County for Jan. 20-26.

  1. The Dana Point City Council will meet Tuesday to affirm a reform to the way city employees pay into their pension plans. Since the city incorporated in 1989, it has paid employees' contributions to their pension, which is 7 percent of their salaries. Under new revisions, new city employees will pay 50 percent of their pensions, up to 8 percent of their salaries. All employees will pay at this rate by 2018.

    The meeting starts at 6 p.m. at City Hall, 33282 Golden Lantern.

  3. After 40 years of ministry, including 11 at Laguna Niguel Presbyterian Church, Pastor Randy Steele is retiring. His last service will be Sunday, when one unified church service is planned at 10 a.m., followed by an all church goodbye and thank you potluck brunch.
  4. Dr. Ledford Powell will review lung cancer risk factors and share details about a quick, easy screening method Wednesday at 11:30 a.m. in Laguna Hills.
