Some bosses would be lucky to get a fruitcake. At Wilson Automotive Group’s company Christmas party this year, David Wilson’s employees presented their boss with a $277,000 check representing money that had been donated to local charities in his name. It’s a tradition that began in 1989, when Wilson owned two dealerships, Toyota of Orange and Tustin Lexus, and had about 130 employees. Their boss was generous, took care of his staff and was well-liked, Wilson Group Vice President Vicki Murphy said.

When the boss of the paper e-mailed me with a request to play golf with him, I immediately treated it like spam and nuked it from my inbox. I avoided him for most of the following two weeks, but he sensed the dodging tactics and cornered me in the cafeteria. He asked me if I was ready for the following Monday. “Of course I am, wouldn’t miss it for the world.” OK, I didn’t have any more great aunts left, so calling in at the last minute to cancel, using the “I have to fly to Paraguay for the funeral” wasn’t an option.

Why is the boss' son treated differently than the boss's daughter or even Ross' brother? Because possessives are evil, that's why. No matter how many times I reread my Associated Press Stylebook on this one, the concept never really penetrates all the way into my brain. So, pretending this is for your sake, but really for my own, here's a crash course in possessives ending in S. There are really only two rules to take note of here. First: Proper names get different treatment than do plain old nouns.

"I am God. Today, I will be handling all of your problems. Please remember that I do not need your help. If life happens to deliver a situation to you that you cannot handle, do not attempt to resolve it. Kindly put it in the SFGTD (Something for God to do) box. All situations will be resolved, but in my time, not yours. Once the matter is placed into the box, do not hold onto it by worrying about it. Instead, focus on all the wonderful things that are present in your life now. Have a wonderful day!"

Roger Carlson Chemotherapy and colon cancer surgery, it doesn't get any more serious than that. So today as Pat Taylor's boss meets his 7:30 a.m. appointment with a surgeon at Hoag Hospital it's pretty understandable that little else is being considered. So if you would, would you close your eyes for a few seconds, hold on to something and say a prayer for her boss? She'd appreciate it. So would I. Family members, of course, will be nearby.

"T he Devil Wears Prada" is a sly look at the inner workings of a slick magazine devoted to high fashion. The story is told by a naive college girl who lands an internship at the famous publication. Anne Hathaway is beautiful and bewildered as the intern who becomes a junior assistant to the dictatorial woman who rules the magazine empire with an iron hand. Stanley Tucci is perfectly cast as the magazine's highly competent fashion director. He brings dry wit and biting sarcasm to his interactions with everyone.

JOHN DEPKO "In Good Company" begins as a politically correct satire of heartless corporate America at work. But it ends up as standard Hollywood fluff that will not be long remembered by anyone. Malcolm McDowell plays a business mogul in the mold of Rupert Murdoch. His main purpose in life is to take over and destroy competing companies regardless of the cost in human terms. Dennis Quaid plays the middle-aged chief of advertising for a sports magazine acquired by the evil corporation.

JUNE CASAGRANDE Remember back when you were in school, there was always one kid who would say stuff like, "Teacher, you forgot to collect our homework," or, God forbid, "I thought you were going to give us a test today"? You know, the kid with the perennial black eye who walked as if his undergarments had been forcibly lodged someplace they weren't supposed to be? Well, you'll be happy to know that that kid is alive and well and living in Newport Beach.

Is Josh Tanner possessed by the spirit of Bruce Springsteen? An observer at a show by his tribute band, Springsteen, might casually say yes. But as far as the Irvine resident is concerned, the Boss literally anointed him backstage one night. Given Tanner's vocal and physical resemblance to his role model, the soul may have been the last part missing. Tanner - real name Josh Schreiber - will bring his enterprise to the Newport Beach Civic Center on Sunday and the OC Fair on Aug. 8. Each show will spotlight a different side of Springsteen: the Top 40 hitmaker at the civic center, and the early-1970s Jersey rocker at the fair.

LOS ANGELES - A former Beverly Hills Unified School District human resources official testified Friday that then-Supt. Jeffrey Hubbard became angry when she put in writing his directive to give another employee a raise without required school board approval. JudyAnn Allen-Mendez testified in Los Angeles County Superior Court that Hubbard did not follow proper procedure in 2005 when he directed her to give subordinate Nora Roque a $20,000 raise. "The job description, and the job itself and the pay, needed to be approved by the board first," the former assistant superintendent of HR told the court.

Ralph Adamo gave the entire staff of his Newport Beach financial firm, Integrity Wealth Management, Wednesday off to peel potatoes, chop vegetables and portion out salmon at Someone Cares Soup Kitchen in Costa Mesa. They were paid as if it were a normal work day and given the option of volunteering at the kitchen or taking the day off. All but two of the eight employees showed up at 9 a.m. to help out. Once the roughly 60 people — some low-income seniors, some unemployed, some homeless — went through the food line during the 1 p.m. lunch service and sat down at long rectangular tables with their meals, Adamo took a short break and tears welled up in his eyes as he talked about the experience.

“Youth is not a time of life; it’s a state of mind, a product of imagination, vigor of the emotions, a predominance of courage over timidity — an appetite for adventure.” I tore this quote from a magazine years ago. I can’t remember who wrote it, but the yellowing piece of paper is taped above my desk. I happened to glance at it during a phone conversation with my friend Tom Johnson the day he announced his resignation as publisher of the Daily Pilot.

Orange County Employees Assn. head Nick Berardino today proposed a bipartisan effort to recall county Treasurer Chriss Street, who is under investigation by county and federal officials for alleged improprieties. Berardino asked the county Democratic, Republican and Libertarian parties as well as elected officials and political fundraising groups to form a recall committee, but so far it’s not clear who will agree to participate. Street has been accused, in separate incidents, of mismanaging a corporate bankruptcy trust and trying to circumvent the county’s bidding process for an architectural contract.
