It is fortunate for barbecue lovers that Tim DeCinces didn't make it as a major league baseball player. The son of famed third baseman and former Angel, Doug DeCinces, languished in the minor leagues, never catching on with the big show. In those eight years, he spent four of them in the minors with the Baltimore Orioles, who had drafted him in the 17th round in 1996. It was the next four years that shaped DeCinces' future career. Playing for the Mobile BayBears, DeCinces traveled around the South, playing against teams in Alabama, Mississippi, Florida and Tennessee.

Jeff Reuter, owner of 3-Thirty-3 Waterfront restaurant in Newport Beach, intends to fill the food nighttime niche with Dry Dock, which would deliver "fall-off-the-bone" barbecue throughout Newport and also serve dine-in customers along Mariner's Mile. "There are a lot of people doing dinner later these days than ever before," Reuter said Tuesday.

Founded in 2003 this group provides furniture for shelters. They have furnished 33 homes built by Habitat for Humanity in Orange County (every single home since 2004). For Orangewood, they have decorated 14 apartments. In addition, Furnishing Hope has donated three furnished residences for the Red Cross in Orange County, as well as working with another dozen local nonprofits donating furnishings and decorative fixtures.
