I read with interest the "Community Commentary" written by Carl Ossipoff in the Daily Pilot on May 3 ("Lack of recycling centers frustrating"). He bemoaned the lack of recycling centers but did fail to mention that Orange Coast College has an excellent recycling center. Per OCC's website, http://www.orangecoastcollege.edu/about_occ/facilities/recycling_center/: "The Orange Coast College Recycling Center will pay back current value of 5 cents per each container under 24 ounces and 10 cents per container 24 ounces or larger of liquid or ready-to-drink products in aluminum, glass, plastic, and bi-metal containers that have the California Redemption Value or CRV message on the label.

Mathis Winkler Cuddling up to his sister Carrie, Spooky -- too sleepy to utter a sound -- opened his big, round eyes. Unlike Elvira, Phantom and Freddy Krueger -- the last having six fingers on each paw -- the 6-week-old black kitten at the Newport Beach Animal Shelter has already found a permanent home. Any other time of the year, Spooky would be in his new home already. But the upcoming Halloween holiday will keep him behind bars for a few more weeks.

Billy Costa Mesa Regal Beauty Supply manicurist Pamela Primm saw Billy's bony body crossing the street near her home in Huntington Beach and attempted to help the emaciated-looking animal by calling the local animal control. Pam just wanted to make sure Billy was safe and called Community Animal Network to help guide her through the county's impound protocol. Cheryl Alderson, manager of vet services, told us that the cat was 13 years old, severely dehydrated and sick with an upper-respiratory infection.

What should be the criminal penalty for angrily swinging an 8-pound puppy from the end of a leash like a lasso, then kicking the dog hard enough so it skids across asphalt, and then twice smacking the Chihuahua-dachshund mix across the face? OK, remember your answer. Now, what should be the penalty for driving while drunk, hitting a car that overturns twice and critically injuring a man who dies six months later, likely as a result of his injuries? I hope you gave more time to the drunk driver than the dog abuser, though these days it doesn't seem to be such a clear-cut call.

-- Story by Paul Clinton, photo by Greg Fry Terrell Orum-Moore has a soft place in her heart for stray kittens. As a volunteer with the Community Animal Network, a Newport Beach animal rescue group, Orum-Moore can't resist picking them up off Orange County streets to nurse back to health. Many times, the creatures are malnourished, terrified and unable to readjust to humans after an abandonment. Take Scamp, her latest project. Orum-Moore was handed the 6-week-old kitty by the group after he was dropped off at an animal shelter by the family that found him. "Everybody has a cause that interests them," Orum-Moore said.

Welcome to the Balboa's "No-Fun Zone. " In just a few short weeks, the beloved Fun Zone merry-go-round will be no more. The decision by the Newport Harbor Nautical Museum to acquire and locate the museum at the Fun Zone site will prove, in time, to be a poor strategic move. But the recent decision to not renew the lease for the carousel tops that mistake. With one stroke, the NHNM has cut the major attractions of the Fun Zone in half, and in doing so will deprive generations and generations of one of the most enjoyable attractions in our beautiful harbor.

Sitting on a bench with a colorful box next to him, Ryan Lefmann waits for the newest member of his family — a cat. As Lefmann pulls the small white kitten from its box, the feline isn’t shy or frightened, but cuddles and immediately starts to climb onto Lefmann’s shoulder. “This guy, when we took him out, he really seemed to respond to us,” the Laguna Hills resident said. The yet-unnamed cat was a stray at the Orange County Animal Shelter, but now will be sharing a house with two dogs.

Nick Carter from the Backstreet Boys probably doesn’t have a lot in common with feral cats, except a love of the Huntington Beach-based nonprofit group Cat Cause. The group is trying to raise funds to create Orange County’s first no-kill cat shelter by staging a benefit featuring the teen heartthrob Saturday at the Shark Club in Costa Mesa. A film producer and president of the film production company In The Light Entertainment, Cat Cause volunteer and event organizer Deanna Shapiro met Carter through her work in show business — Carter and the independent film producer are working on a project together.
