A Newport Beach woman is seeking tens of millions of dollars in damages from the city, claiming police erroneously arrested her husband who had bipolar disorder and killed himself in jail. Sandy Wedgeworth, 34, and family members filed four claims against Newport Beach on Monday seeking upward of $34 million in damages from emotional distress, loss of a husband and father, and loss of future earnings. William Robert Wedgeworth, 43, hanged himself with bedsheets in a Newport Beach Police Department jail cell July 31. Police had arrested him earlier in the day on suspicion of spousal abuse against his wife.

Newport Beach police have closed their investigation into a 10-vehicle crash on Coast Highway in January that killed three people, concluding that speed and driving on the wrong side of the road were to blame for the tragedy. Police closed the investigation this week after the Orange County coroner's office released autopsy and toxicology reports on the death of Julia "Julie" Allen, the 27-year-old driver alleged to have started the deadly chain of events on the arterial road, Sgt. Steve Burdette said.

Jennifer Kho COSTA MESA -- Everywhere Harvey Alexander Cochran goes in the city, a disposable camera goes with him. Photographs are not a hobby for Cochran; they are a way to make a point at City Council meetings. They have become a symbol for Cochran that he is no longer -- as of Dec. 22 -- an "armchair advocate." "Ever since I moved to Costa Mesa in 1997, I have been watching council meetings on TV," said Cochran, a representative for Californians for Disability Rights and Advocacy who joined the organization in 1995.

“C athy has lived most everywhere, from Zanzibar to Barkley Square, but Patty has only seen the sights a girl can see from Brooklyn Heights. What a crazy pair.”   As I sat across the table from Patty Duke , the melody and the words from her television show theme ran through my head. It was almost like being obsessed by the camp song “100 Bottles of Beer on the Wall.” You know the one, that melody that gets in your brain while riding in the back of the bus going to summer camp.

According to a news report this week on National Public Radio, many inhabitants of the world's second most populous country, India, who are afflicted with depression, psychosis and other mental health problems rely on faith healers and doctors at their local temples, instead of traditional medicine, to treat their problems. NPR reported that only 37 mental health institutions operate in that country of 1.2 billion people, where there is only one psychiatrist per 400,000 people. In your view, can religion be a substitute for medicine in the treatment of mental health problems, or would you advocate medicine over religion, or a combination of the two?

Tabloid reports that Lindsay Lohan would be taken from a Lynwood jail to a rehabilitation facility in Costa Mesa owned by Newport Beach-based Morningside Recovery proved untrue this morning when the troubled actress was instead taken to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. It was unclear whether the troubled actress would later be transferred to a rehab in Orange County. Lohan, 24, was freed from the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood at 1:35 a.m. after serving 14 days of a 90-day sentence for violating her probation in a 2007 drug case, a sheriff's spokesman said.
